When we met, we looked at Pinterest. So many beautiful portraits posted on Pinterest. Beautiful locations, clothing ideas and posing styles were murmured over. Months in advance we met and dreamed and made plans.
Our day came and we wandered around the Presidio, finding hidden nooks with gorgeous light and eucalyptus wafting on the warm fall breeze.
Our session was a journey of exploration to photograph this beautiful family in an amazing city by the bay.Not all moments were perfect, which I love. It is these images that tell the story of the day. These images bring surprise and laughter because they are not “perfect,” but they’re PERFECT.
As the sun reaches toward it’s sleep the light softens and so do we. Peace, playfulness, fresh air, tiny particles of ocean in our very breath.
And the quick intake of that ocean air when the perfect moment is captured and we witnessed it together. Bliss.
