Stephanie + Tom + Becca + Thomas + Mary
This sweet family, recently transplanted to the Bay Area, immediately found a comfy spot in my heart. They were just so fun to be with, and so easy to photograph. The connection between them all, the way in which each person had room to be so completely themselves was awesome and sweet and beautiful.
Crissy Fields was a perfect location for their session for two reasons- firstly because they are an outdoorsy family (and true enough Thomas was soon engrossed with jelly fish on the shore while Becca and Mary were burying each other’s legs in the sand) and secondly because they move around the country a fair bit for work, so having the iconic Golden Gate bridge in the background was a nice anchor and symbol of this time and place in their lives. That last shot is an absolute favourite. Ha! Who am I kidding? All of these are favourites!!
