A Mom and her Boy + Boy and his Dog | Clayton Family Photographer

If this session looks like it was fun…it’s because IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!

A mom with her son – I GET IT.  A boy with his dog…I can only imagine but I’ve been told there’s no other relationship like it.

And to photograph all of the above, well, that’s a dream.

Here’s what we got from our time together:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you both for working SO hard with me to create these images and for being so absolutely charming together.  One of my favorite sessions to date.

Sweet Henry | Berkeley Family Photographer

Henry and I are buds!  This little guy oozes charm and sweetness – as do his mommy and daddy.  I enjoy photographing their family so much!

 

 

 

 

I think what I love most about these pictures is how real they feel.  I love pictures that aren’t afraid of life as it is – pictures that look like real life, sound like real life, and feel like real life.

This family lives a beautiful life of faith and love.  And while those things can’t be photographed directly or manipulated in photoshop…those things show up in all of their images.  Such a beautiful real life they lead.

Sunol Engagement Photographer | Genevieve & Nic

I’d never been here – but I instantly loved it.  (Just a side note…are you ever blown away the amazing resources, parks, day trips, museums, etc… we have here in the Bay Area?  I am!  I’m so grateful to live here and discover new places all the time.)

 

I’m so glad that Genevieve knew about the Green Barn East Bay Regional Park in Sunol…and was up for the trek from their home.  They both wanted a place with natural beauty, I wanted a place with great light and we all wanted a place where we could relax and create some beautiful images together.  I love how they turned out…and I think that’s mostly because I love Genevieve and Nic.  I love who they are & I love what they stand for.

 

(Side note number two: when a regional park says that they close at a certian time…they mean it!  We SCRAMBLED to get these photos done in 45 minutes.  Genevieve and Nic were such great sports…but I tell you…when I saw the EB Regional truck about to lock that gate with me on the other side & NO cell service & 15 minute drive to the main highway…well…I was glad took the rules about closing at face value!)

 

Back to this sweet couple…The best thing about Genevieve and Nic, though, is the way Nic loves her.  You’ll see what I mean…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You guys, I can’t wait to photograph your wedding really really soon!
