My Family photo session with Amy

This is the second time I was photographing Amy and her family. The weather was not ideal, but it did not matter. The photo session was in China Beach in San Francisco. We got great photos from this child photo session. On top of this, Amy’s daughter is a climber, just like her parents. What fun!

Modern Family Photo Session in San Francisco

I have been photographing Kristina and Mike what seems like forever: the engagement, the wedding, first and second maternity, first and second newborn, etc. So I know what they like: they want to capture the love they have for each other and  they like their photos to be timeless without looking staged. Mission accomplished!  This is what Kristina wrote to me after seeing their family photos for the first time: "Thanks soooo soooo much Fimachka!!   Those are just remarkable!!! My jaw hurts from smiling non-stop when we were editing photos from our family photo session.Simply...... genius!"

San Francisco Child Photographer

I have been photographing Stacy and Ethan's family since their child was born.  And every year after that.  Every year different location.It is such a pleasure seeing the growth of your clients children. I believe their son nailed down the "being super cute" part in the last photo session! :)

Golden Gate Park Family Photography

I love photographing families and children in Golden Gate Park. So many beautiful places, so many beautiful backgrounds and when you find the right light- it's magic time. This is exactly what happened when I photographed Cherry, Charles and their daughter! Magic!

San Francisco Infant and Family Photography

I was very excited when  Michelle and Pat contacted me to photograph their one year old daughter. They wanted to create similar images I created 2 years ago with their other daughter. Having pets in photo session with 1 year old and 3 year old? Bring it on! We love challenges! Also the cake: I offer cake photo session for one year old clients. The clean-up is on the house. Sometimes one year old clients do not take kindly to the cake. The joy of being child photographer! :)

A Fashion Portrait with a Tux!

I was very excited when Stacy called me. She mentioned that her son has a Tux from being a ring bearer last month and asked me if it’s OK to photograph him in upcoming family photo session wearing it? Are you kidding me? I love making creative and unusual photographs! Bring champagne and let’s get it started! And now we have proof that her son was ladies’s man even before puberty! :)

To make this work we needed a location where wearing a tux would be OK. Palace Hotel in San Francisco is such a place.  My motto is: “It is always better to ask forgiveness than permission!”

Lucky for us, hotel security intervened  just as we wrapped our “fashion photo session”!
