Light, Laughter and Love! Beautiful Golden Hour Family Photo Session in Novato, California
Wow, I mean just look at this family!
I loved, loved, LOVED seeing this family again! I remember our session from last year, and it always amazes me how much kids grow in just one year. Their little girl was just the sweetest, wanting to show me all the cool things she was collecting during our photo session! She showed me her latest dance moves, all the sweet features of her baby brother, and her smile was just such a light during our session.
This family is super comfortable with the outdoors, and I was so excited that they were interested in having their portraits taken in a new location. They both work for the Sonoma County parks, so it was really special to photograph them in an environment that really reflects their family's personality. I absolutely love this location, and will add it to my short list of places to take future families that want something different!
It was breezy the evening of our session, and these lovely people were such troopers! Personally, I LOVE wind during a session (give me all the wind!), because it adds natural, beautiful movement during the session. See how stunning mom's dress looks with the some movement, and how it catches the light. See how carefree and natural hair looks when it has movement. It just adds so much life to your images!
What I love most about this location is it's near water. Something about water just seems so grounding, and it just photographs beautifully. It was a little too chilly to get in the water, but maybe next time? 😉
This family's joy just poured out of them. The love was real, nothing was forced, and the kids loved all the cuddles and snuggles from mom and dad. By the end of the session, the kids didn't want to leave! They wanted to stay and play. 😍 It was an amazing session and everyone had a great time! 💛
