Here we are a month into winter, and this Oakland family session from the fall feels long ago. I love the colors of their beautiful terraced garden. I love how they welcomed me into their home and were able to relax and be themselves, how they picked persimmons from their tree, hung out in socks, played cars, read books, and ate snacks. This year I want to shoot more sessions at home. I love the authenticity and the coziness, real people doing real things.
