Bay Area Maternity Photos
She had a vision for this first shot – of her whole family walking across the lawn. I love when my clients have specific shot requests for the same reason I love working with art directors. It gives me a jumping off point to compose the shot, and provides a perspective I probably wouldn’t have come up with on my own.
We met at Lake Merritt, in Oakland, California, where her kids could run around, and we could get some beautiful backdrops.
The kids loved spotting all of the different variety of birds. Lake Merritt provides a sanctuary for a lot of local species.
So, this was their last official family portrait as a family of four. I’m looking forward to our next session to include their new daughter!
