At Home Lifestyle – Family Portraits

I adore this sweet family! My friend Kim and I met in middle school and grew up playing soccer together! I feel so lucky to capture all the milestones in their lives! Starting with maternity announcements, a snow maternity session in Tahoe, newborn photos at home, family portrait sessions, their wedding, a maternity session for their second child – on the coast, and now at home lifestyle photos. I love how these turned out, they were just having fun being themselves in the comfort of their own home. Even Koda their golden retriever, the original “fur” child made it in a few.

Coastal Family & Maternity Portrait Session

This family is near and dear to my heart! We have worked together and photographed a pregnancy announcement, maternity, newborn, engagement, wedding and now that there family is growing again we are celebrating the newest addition to their family with a maternity family portrait session!

We got away for the weekend to an ocean view cabin in Gualala, about an hour south of the Bodega Bay. We spilt the shoot into two times so we could get some full baby bump maternity swimsuit photos and then a couple of outfit changes later in the evening.

I love the outfit coordination for these family portraits. The neutral colors fit so well together. The blush maternity dress is just the right amount of boho, the oversized cable-knit sweater and cream tones work well with Wyatts white linen shirt and it ties to the location perfectly. We did a variety of fun sandy belly photos and different maternity/family poses as well. Look through these for inspiration for your next family or maternity shoot! Enjoy :)
