Every year I get the honor of photographing this sweet family! Most of my business is in San Francisco but I actually live in Petaluma. When my daughters were babies, I joined the Petaluma Mothers’ Club (PMC) to make some friends and to fellowship with other moms. It is HARD raising children, and simply having adult conversations helps alleviate the stress of motherhood!
I started photographing this mama and her family back when we were in the PMC together, meeting on blankets in the park. Her son was always one step ahead of everyone – even the adults! Every year, we get together for a fun-filled crazy mini session somewhere in Petaluma. This year, we were downtown with the brick buildings and bridge across the river. Location is everything, and this family needed to be photographed in their element. We chased the sun and captured the big love of this family. Big brother is enamored with his little sis (as we all are!) and he just wants to snuggle her! It is an adorable relationship to capture.
I love this little town and all of the support I have gotten from sweet families like this one.
