Burns Family Portraits | San Francisco Botanical Garden Golden Gate Park | San Francisco Family Photography

If you’re ever going to spend a day exploring the wonders of Golden Gate Park and the San Francisco Botanical Garden, it’s really great to know you can do it with a wonderful family like the Burns’. We met up at the main entrance to the garden and started to wander the grounds. I’ve been to the Botanical Garden with families several times over the years and the beauty of this place never ceases to amaze me. It’s a wonderful place for families and children to frolic, and it’s a different experience each time you visit.

On an amazing note, Kim Burns is the co-owner of Fresh Baby Bites, the San Francisco Bay Area’s best local, organic, healthy, yummy baby and toddler food business. I recently had the fantastic pleasure of spending a day in the kitchen with Fresh Baby Bites creating documentary photos for their business (see the photo gallery linked here). Check out more about our collaboration on the Fresh Baby Bites Blog linked here and my follow up blog post in their email newsletter linked here.

Enjoy some photos from our adventures!

Korenberg Family Portraits | San Francisco Botanical Garden | San Francisco Family Photography

What a lovely afternoon in the San Francisco Botanical Garden, one of my favorite venues in the city for family photoshoots – shhh don’t tell the other photogs 🙂 J/K there’s enough beautiful space in urban nature out there for all of us to explore! We started out as many of my ventures out there do, just kinda wandering and seeing where the little ones take us. One of the first things mom says is “you’re just photographing them.” Of course I love following young ones around as they explore new and exciting things in the wild, but of course we had to pull mom and dad in for a few group photos. We explored together and saw everything from grassy fields to lakes and redwood forests. All in all a magnificent day in the park!

Tsung Family Portraits | Palace of Fine Arts | San Francisco Family Photography

After another wonderful year of San Francisco Bay Area family photography, this is one of my last posts of 2012, and happily it’s about one of my favorite sessions of the year, an afternoon at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco with the Tsung Family.

Darcy Tsung is a well-known designer based in San Francisco with amazing attention to elegant detail. We met earlier this year through mutual acquaintances when she hired me to make professional portraits for her business as well as photos for two of her residential interior design projects in Lafayette and Orinda.

Happily and gratefully, she trusted me so much that she invited me to spend some time with her, her husband and two daughters, and we had a fantastic time exploring the Palace of Fine Arts while we enjoyed the sunset through the massive structure and grounds!

Carlos Family Portraits | Presidio of San Francisco | San Francisco Family Photography

If you’ve been following along on the blog, you’ve already met the Carlos Family. I had a wonderful photosession with them last year in the San Francisco Botanical Gardens. Many of you may remember the ever-popular who you lookin’ at squinty face photo from their previous shoot : ) This year, now that everyone is full on up and walking, we decided to try something new for all of us, an adventure in the Presidio of San Francisco!

They have 3 boys who helped me have some of the most fun I could have with a client who came back for another round of awesome family photos! I always enjoy working with them and wonderful families like them. You can read both candid reviews of their photosessions with me here on Yelp! (yes, they had such a great time they were kind enough to stop by twice!).

Mahany Family Portraits | Fort Mason | San Francisco Family Photography

It was a little cool and windy that day, so our main challenge was seeking shelter from the breeze. Good thing for us, we stumbled into the community garden and old battery tucked up high on the green. What a fantastic backdrop for these family portraits!

Hur Family Portraits | Fort Mason | San Francisco Family Photography

What a wonderful day in the park with the Hur family! We rambled around the green, found a garden and even made it down to the water at Fort Mason. The boys had a great time exploring and playing around everywhere we went. And I enjoyed exploring along with them!

A most amazing part of the family photoshoot we had is that the family decided to create such a wonderful CollageWall to place in a prominent place in their home. I joined them one spring afternoon to install it for them and this is the results, I love these CollageWalls!

Instagram :: June 2012

Expression of daily life with Instagram and iPhoneography is a never ending adventure.  I’m happy to post the monthly update for June 2012.

Wine, camping, telescopes, palaces, concerts, the Golden Gate Bridge, rusty snails and nasty hospital food all caught my attention this past month…
