Lafayette Family Portrait Session

Missy Goldwyn Photography - Lafayette Family Portrait Session

Fall is the perfect time for family portrait sessions! Autumn in the bay area is beautiful with its soft, golden, natural light. I love getting the chance to meet up with families to capture moments they will treasure! That’s why I met up with this lovely family just last week in Lafayette, California. I loved getting a chance to spend time with them!


Lafayette Family Portrait Session


This family recently moved to Lafayette, and have easily integrated into the community. The parents are named Jill and Matt. Their oldest daughter is Riley, the middle daughter is Sheridan, and the boy is named Grady. They already have a lot of friends, and the kids seem to have adjusted really well to their new town. They recently got a puppy named Harper. And isn’t she adorable? This was one of the first times that Harper was allowed out in public. It was such an adventure! I loved how the kids interacted with their newest family member. It was clear Harper meant a lot to them!


The images from this family portrait session shoot will be used for their family holiday cards, so it was important that I get a range of different shots. So, I made sure to capture some moments of the whole family together, some with mom and dad alone, and of course plenty of pictures with little Harper!


It was clear that Jill had trained the family really well on how to smile for the camera. It was amazing how smoothly the whole session went- even with the chaos of having a puppy! For this family session, we focused on straight forward family shots. It was all so easy that this portrait session ended up only taking about 30 minutes! The light was beautiful and we took pictures in a few different places to have different backgrounds in their completed portraits. I love finding just the right natural light for pictures and this family portrait session was no different!


Jill and Matt, thank you for bringing your beautiful children and your adorable puppy to meet me! It was such a pleasure to capture your family portrait session. I’m sure your holiday cards will turn out beautifully.
