Prepare to behold one of my favorite family photo sessions of all time.
I photographed this gorgeous family at Sacramento’s Paradise Beach, only a few weeks after the addition of super sweet and very teeny, newborn Elle.
If you’ve worked with me before, you know I love sparkling water in the background of my sessions. Upon arriving at this session, I did feel a tinge of concern as the beautifully dressed boys in this family wasted no time walking, tightrope style, across a log in the water. And although it appeared inevitable that one would fall in, amazingly, by the end of the session only dad had slipped in!
The boys did take full advantage of exploring the beach, which gave us plenty of time to photograph their newborn sister and stunning mom.
Have you ever seen a woman with such an enigmatic smile? As a photographer, I typically feel my role is to simply provide my services to whomever inquires. But occasionally, I’ll straight up pursue a subject that I feel called to photograph. Such was the case with the mother of this family. The moment I first laid eyes on her I thought, I must photograph this woman! I was absolutely overjoyed when she reached out about family photographs a year later, and even more delighted when I saw how my photographs are infused with the beauty this family exudes.
I’m working with this family to transform some of these images into wall art for their house, and I’ll update the blog to share the ways they brought this session into their home.
