Radiant High School Senior~ Fall photos {San Francisco East Bay portrait photography}

This high school graduate has a natural glow! A bit shy at first, she grew more comfortable posing for the camera as we moved through our outdoor site. She was a delight to work with, and by the time we were finished, I think she felt ready to start her modeling career!

High School Senior~fun urban photo shoot {San Francisco Bay Area portrait photographer}

This high school graduate was a joy to work with. She was comfortable in front of the camera and effortlessly moved through our senior portrait session. We explored our urban location on an overcast day and she was full of life. And I am so jealous of her long hair, which I have been trying to grow my entire life with no success! This senior has great things ahead of her!

Easy-Going graduate~San Ramon Valley High School {Danville Senior Photography}

This laid-back high school senior is almost ready to graduate! He was so relaxed during our photo shoot and so much fun to work with. We played with light and shadows, and he had some ideas of his own for his senior portrait session. But I suspect that he really would rather have been riding his skateboard! With such an easy-going presence, I know he will go on to exciting things after graduation! Check out his senior portrait review on the Raves page.

Charismatic high school graduate~Exploring The Athenian School {Danville Senior Portrait Photographer}

This high school senior is incredibly charismatic and fun-loving. With her beautiful smile and easy going personality, she made my senior portrait photography job super easy! After so many years at Athenian's campus, she was excited to document her last year before saying goodbye and heading off to college. We explored different locations, saw a family of deer, attempted tree climbing and were even joined by her Australian sheepdog and her dad for the end of the photo shoot

You can read her YELP review or check out senior portrait review on the Raves page to learn more about our time together.

Playful family of four~Autumn outdoors {SF East Bay lifestyle photography}

This family of four was a delight to photograph. They played together and had fun with the Fall leaves falling from the trees. The youngest boy was super quick and into everything, so we all took turns keeping an eye out for trouble! And, after the threat of more rain, it turned out to be a beautiful day for an outdoor photo session.

Fun-loving family of four~playing in the gardens {San Ramon lifestyle photography}

It was such a joy photographing this family of four at Crow Canyon Gardens in San Ramon! They were so exuberant, and the love between them can be felt in every shot. These sisters are amazing and so connected! With four years between them, at age 6 and 10, that is pretty special! Mom and dad helped create a fun photo session for us all. I hope I have an opportunity to photograph this smiling family again!

Dad with son and daughter~exploring at Lafayette Reservoir {SF East Bay lifestyle photographer}

It was a beautiful afternoon at Lafayette Reservoir. While I walk the reservoir once a week, it was my family's first time at the site. They had fun exploring the paths, open spaces and water's edge. My six year old daughter was very enthusiastic about the family photography shoot. Even my seventeen year old son went along with the flow. And my husband geared up for the event. My favorite part of the shoot was reflections in the water after the sun had gone over the hill. Here are some photos from the session.

Smiling girl~exploring the beach in Alameda {family lifestyle photographer}

My daughter had such a blast exploring Alameda on a hot summer day. First there was the beach with buckets and sand and children everywhere! Then there was our nature walk with the beautiful San Francisco Bay as our backdrop. Then we discovered AMF Bowling with the most amazing red brick wall, perfect for modern photo shoot. Such a fun photo session! Here are a few of my favorites.

6 year old girl~summer fun at Hap Magee Park {Danville family photos}

It was so much fun capturing my beautiful daughter playing in the water feature at Hap Magee Ranch Park. It was a hot summer day, and she jumped right in to play, not a care in the world. Capturing her joy makes me a proud mother and inspires my outdoor photography. Documenting her journey from elated, to damp, to soaking wet, to cold/uncomfortable/soaking wet provided me with a new life lesson: always bring a towel! Here are a few images from our photo session.
