is your family planning on moving from the bay area? the last thing that’s on the to-do list is probably booking a family photoshoot. but after seeing these sweet photos from this family session, maybe it’s something to think about for your to-do list?
this session makes my heart soar yet also makes me sad. this family is moving from the bay area to austin, texas and we thought that our annual family fun session should be a “goodbye to our home sweet home” session.
i’ve photographed this family when they brought each child home from the hospital and each year since to celebrate all of their love and fun. we’ve adventured through abandoned houses tucked in the hills of los gatos, wine tasted in the hills of saratoga, raced paper boats down creeks, explored tide pools and had play water fights on the beach. we’ve done lots of beautiful locations in the los gatos/santa cruz area and when we were thinking about what to do for their final session, having it in their home seemed like the perfect place.
they canceled their open house scheduled for the day, put a pause on packing up more of their home and had me spend the day doing all of their favorites. they baked cookies, had dance parties, ate loads of pyscho donuts, played dress up and bounced on the trampoline.
it’s hard to say goodbye to the place that they’ve known as home but they’re ready for their next adventure exploring texas. and having these photos of all of the love and fun in their first family home is priceless and something that they’ll cherish through the years. i am looking forward to making trips to austin to continue our annual photo tradition 🙂
