Berkeley Family Photography @ UC Berkeley

Shoey photographed a family of three children and a dog at UC Berkeley creating family portraits for the home and for holiday gifts.

Jenn, Seth and their 3-child family recently met me at UC Berkeley for a family portrait session.  Cal is a park-like setting which lends a perfect backdrop for family portraits, engagement photos, business portraits and, of course, weddings and other celebrations.  As I’m a UC graduate, I have lots of favorite spots on campus for family portraits.  The kids were active so I looked for a space that they could enjoy playing around in.  The faculty glade, with grass and a few trees to climb was a perfect setting.  And, the light was gorgeous.

The kids started off a little shy but after a some gymnastics, splits, backbends and handstands, they were ready to play in front of the camera.

The kids had such fun they kept calling, “Hey Shoey, over here! Take me!”  I was able to capture a large variety of attitudes from the kids.Berkeley-Family-Photography-11 Berkeley-Family-Photography-10Jenn, later told me I caught each of the kids’ personalities.  That is best compliment.

Let me capture your family’s energy and personality.  Fall is a perfect time of year to create photos you’ll love for ever.  And, photos make fantastic holiday gifts.  Call today to schedule your family portrait session.  510-917-0659.
