A Fall Inspired Mini Session | Bay Area Family Photographer

beautiful fall family portrait in pleasanton

If you were to look up “Best Fall Outfit for my Fall Mini Session”, I’m pretty sure this is what you would find which is exactly why I titled this post A Fall Inspired Mini Session. I can tell you this, if I ever do a fall mini session of my own, I’m hiring Elaine to style my family because she is SO GOOD AT IT!

Last Fall was my second time photographing this beautiful family; check out their first mini session here. It’s so fun to see little ones completely change in a two year period. Their personality is different and they’ve grown SO much! Sometimes they’re more shy and sometimes less so. The great thing about photography is you can capture exactly who they are in a simple picture. You’ll look back at these 20 years from now and see an expression that I caught and you’ll remember exactly who he/she was at that time in their life. The memories, the way you felt, everything all comes right back just by a simple picture. It’s really pretty amazing and why I love what I do so much.

Another mom recently told me that although she doesn’t love having her pictures taken, now being able to look back a year ago at her babies made her realize why it’s so important.

And yes we have amazing iphone cameras these days and they capture the everyday, sure. But sometimes it’s nice to get fancied up and have someone else hold the camera, capturing the loving moments of you snuggling up to your babies before, in a blink of an eye, they are off to college or life.

Thank you Patel Family for allowing me to capture these memories for you.

Fall Mini Session with the Grandparents|Pleasanton Photographer

Can everyone please bring their children’s grandparents to their fall mini sessions??

Like seriously.

I wish I could shout through a loud speaker to you right now about the importance of a generation photo. But instead I will leave you with this session to hopefully convince you of doing this.

I mean if there was ever a time to do it….fall family mini session season is it my friends. Quick shoot, in an easily accessible place, at a beautiful time of the year, it’s perfect!

You get a couple family pictures with the grandparents, grandparents with the grandkids only, grandparents with their kids and some of just the grandparents.

Then we get the family without the grandparents and you have a ton of pictures to choose from. It was quick and painless and something I promise you will treasure for the rest of your life.

Generation picture…..just do it!
