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!

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!

I was thrilled when Amy, who is the owner of Mama Lounge in San Francisco asked me to display my work in her office. Mama Lounge San Francisco clinic in Laurel Village specialties are natural medicine for Fertility, Prenatal and Postpartum. Since my specialties are Maternity Photography and Newborn photography, it is a perfect location to display my work!

Baby Step Club #4

This was the 4th newborn portrait photo session for my client Dessiree and Brandon with their daughter for our baby step club series.  Our baby step club series is 4 photo sessions within one year. You save a lot of money when you choose this program. Some clients choose their 4 sessions (maternity, newborn, 6 month and one year). Some choose (newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month and one year).  Most of our clients make beautiful "A Year in the life" of their child afterwards. We chose to do this final family portrait session in the studio, concentrating on their daughter. As you can see, she already knows how to make "cheese" smile! :) #San-Francisco-infant-photography

A family studio portrait session

What can I say. I love photographing kids. They always give you what's on their mind. If they do not like the way photo session is going, they WILL let you know. Twins will give you double of that. On top of this add a newborn addition to the family. But I love challenges. Sometimes we add a additional level of challenges by getting family pets in the photos. Lucky for me, there were only twins and newborn with their parents to work with. No problem! :)

Studio Maternity photography

I love photographing several generations at the same time. Michelle is my long time client. I have been photographing her daughter since she was very very little. Now Michelle hired me to photograph her maternity with her extended family.  The tiger you see is an animal who greats every child when they come to my studio. He is very very child friendly! :) San Francisco family photography

Newborn Family Portrait Photography

Angela and Lubin joined our Baby Step Club (4 photo sessions during child first year). This is their first session. They even brought their dog to the session.

Cleopatra: Examples of Green Screen Photography

Frank and Sonny are long-time clients of mine.  They're wonderful with creative ideas for every photo session we do. Last Halloween, they concocted the idea of dressing up their daughter as Cleopatra, Frank as Julius Caesar, and Sonny as Mark Antony.

For the portraits that I took in their family photo session, I used green screen technology to put photos of their daughter in front of an ancient Egyptian setting.

Frank made every single one of these costumes.  What a family!

Family Photography

Crystal and her family have been clients of mine for several years.  Much like many of my other clients, when I ask them what they want for their family portrait session, they can't decide on whether they want indoor studio photography or outdoor photography.  Luckily, we can make both of those happen in 1 1/2 hours or less, and all for the same price.  We have many parks nearby.  40 minutes in a park, 40 minutes in the studio, and we can make everything that you want for their family photos a possibility.

Newborns and pets

Recently Stacey Wiley of Woof Walks in the East Bay came to me with a challenge. She wanted portraits of her newborn as well as several of her dogs. What came from the photo shoot was a lot of wonderful shots with the dogs as well as the people. I have done a lot of pet photography in my career and these were some of the best behaved dogs I have worked with so far. Stacey really  is a dog whisperer.

San Francisco Studio Family Photography

My client Marica hired me to photograph her whole family. In our San Francisco portrait studio, I had the opportunity to take family portraits of her family, her brother’s family, and her parents. She told me it was the first time in her life that she had a formal photograph taken with her father. The family photos included pictures of the grandparents with their granddaughters, the two cousins playing together, and photos of the entire family together. It was a great opportunity to take these very special photographs for my client.

Portraits with Personality

Recently, I was able to take a series of black and white portraits of my client Michelle’s youngest son. We wanted to show his silly and unique personality in the portraits, and I think we succeeded in capturing the charisma of this young boy- a new model superstar is born! Michelle brought in her two older sons as well, and I photographed all three of them together for a family portrait with lots of love between the siblings.

Portrait of Boxer and his Family

In a studio session with client Carolyne, her husband, and their daughter, I photographed both family portraits and individual shots of this unique family. The husband is a professional boxer, so the family wanted actions shots of him. While the little girl was changing, I got the chance to take portraits of her father as a boxer, plus family portraits as well.
