Family Photography Session: Baker Beach

 The Crow Family

I had a great time spending the evening at the beach with Lawson and his parents Lauren + LD. The Crow family chose Baker Beach for their family photography session to represent their stay in San Francisco. The famous Golden Gate Bridge marks a historic landmark and symbol of San Francisco. There is really nothing quite like photographing a family at a beach. Oh how fun it is to be playing in the sand and being chased by the waves!

Despite it being half way through October, we somehow still had the mid-summer weather. The heat wave brought along tons of families for sunbathing and picnicking all throughout this mile-long beach. Major props to this family for rocking their outfits, running around, and carrying their 30 pound little dude despite it being over 80 degrees outside. This family really stood out and their love for each other shines through their photos. Lawson was shy at first, but he very quickly warmed up to me. He gave me the cutest smiles and the best high-fives you could ask from a one year old! Those pretty blue eyes of his melt my heart!

Thank you Lauren and LD for choosing me to photograph your family for this year’s Christmas photos!


How pretty are Lawson’s blue eyes?


Lauren did an amazing job planning and coordinating outfits for their family session. They wanted to do one formal look and one casual look. Both looked great!


How cute is this dad-son duo!?
