Bay Area Fall Mini Session | Walnut Creek, CA

With my Bay Area Fall Mini sessions being announced, I thought I’d share some of the beautiful families I had the honor of photographing last fall. Last season was so incredibly busy with the crazy fires we had and shuffling shoots around, I never got the chance to share everyone’s mini sessions, but there’s no better time than the present, amiright?!

Summer is quickly coming to an end and with that starts my FAVORITE time of the year…..FALL!! The colors, the holidays, sweater weather, re-decorating my house for each upcoming event (its like Halloween and Christmas threw up in my house and I love it!), and of course…..FALL MINI SESSIONS! I usually do my mini sessions a little differently in that I have several weekends open for mini’s from September to November whereas many photographers open a weekend or two of minis and that’s it. I do this because I know it’s such a busy time of the year and I don’t want anyone to miss out. However, this year I have weddings booked most of September and October so I am slightly limited this year on available dates. That said, I have the first three weekends in November wide open just for minis and this is my favorite month to do mini sessions because the colors are in full effect and all traces of California summer dryness is gone.

If you’re interested in booking your fall mini session but wanted more details, click HERE for all the info and session dates available. Mini sessions are only in the afternoon/evenings. You can also go directly to the Inquire page, send me a message and I will get back to you!

In the meantime, here is the beautiful Correy Family at their Walnut Creek mini session last fall. A lot of clients ask me for ideas of what to wear and this is a great example! I love neutral with a color pop or contrast, everyone is coordinated but not “matching” aka No all white polos for everyone! I’m always happy to give you ideas before your session so if you’re stuck just let me know!  ~Sarah

P.S. I feel like all toddlers should have a pair of Adidas shoes so I linked some here for you and they are on sale!!

Lopez Family Mini Session | Walnut Creek, CA

One of my favorite things about fall mini session season is getting to see this beautiful family. They’ve been with me since I started doing mini sessions and I’ve loved watching their family grow and being able to capture them each fall. Every year Sara puts together the most perfectly coordinated outfits for her family and they always look incredible. They’re actually the perfect Pinterest What to Wear board. Always dying to see what she comes up with each year!

Last fall, their session, like many others, was scheduled just as the Camp Fire had begun. Although we decided to keep their session these images leave a little footprint of the fires that raged through Northern California with the present haze in the background. I have never had to reschedule fall mini sessions so many times in one season but due to the poor air quality, which got so much worse after this day of minis, it was a constant shuffle and reschedule of minis through November. I am so grateful to all my clients who were so easy to work with in getting their session changed. Praying this season we stay fire free and everyone stays safe.

2019 Mini Sessions are coming up! Message me today for dates and be sure to follow me on Instagram for announcements!
