This family wanted a beach location in SF and after talking about some of their choices (Crissy Field, Baker Beach, China Beach), they settled on China beach and I am so glad they did! Even though their shoot took place on a weekend, we pretty much had the beach to ourselves, it was about 70 degrees, and it was overcast which worked out well since the shoot needed to take place at least 2 hours before sunset due to this sweet little girl’s bedtime. This location is also beautiful since it has amazing rocks and the golden gate bridge which always looks great in photos.

Trish took in all of the advice I provided including my tips to help her decide whether her family should wear lighter or darker colors. Light colors= light/airy photos and dark colors= dark and moody photos. I think she did such a great job on their outfits as she was going for more of a light/airy look that was also casual/laid back.

Thinking about booking a family session for holiday photos? definitely email me asap to get on the schedule! The fall season is a busy time, so its best to book sooner rather than later! Click here to book
