Gibson Family Session | San Francisco Bay Area Family Photographer

I love it when we're able to do a shoot at the family's home - it's intimate, and definitely let's you in on the family dynamic since they're more comfortable and themselves in a familiar surrounding.  The Gibson family residence is nestled away in the hills of the South Bay Area, and wow, they are blessed to be surrounded by such beauty!  Definitely a break from the busy hustle and bustle of city urban life.  

Here a few photos from the Gibson Family's session.  Enjoy!!!


If I had a backyard view like this, I'd be set for life.

I love these next 2 photos - the kids (Brooke, Cole, Amelia, and Annie) were a lot of fun to work with.  Here, you can see Cole with his "I can't believe this is my family" look.  In the 2nd photo, I think we've all been there - mom and dad being affectionate in front of us and the "ewww" that comes out our mouth. lol  

Dear Gibson Family - I would like to borrow your backyard for all my outdoor shoots.  Thanks! :)  But seriously, the view was amazing!

Amelia and Annie!  Annie (the youngest one) is quite the spunky one.  You'll see in the later photos, she likes to take photos barefoot. :)

Brooke & Cole!

I think it's an understatement when Marianne and I say, "we LOVE working with teens."  They are all about taking photos and take direction so well.  Brooke actually wanted to take this shot, and I was very happy to oblige.  

If anyone that has younger siblings can attest to, it's that your younger siblings always want to do what you do.  Annie is no exception!  After watching Brooke take a few photos in the doorway, she wanted some taken as well....Annie-style!

Amelia was definitely less rambunctious than Annie and not as photo-crazy as Brooke.  She has a quiet calm about her.

Cole is calm, cool, and collected.  

Please feel free to leave a comment..we'd love to hear from you!  Heck, "like" us on Facebook!!

  2. We had a ball doing the shoot. Jeff encouraged everyone to relax, be spontaneous and have some fun. A most excellent experience, and some great pictures to boot.

  3. Stacy - Thank you! Hope all is well!
    Christine - Thanks so much for a great session and for inviting me to your home. Your family was definitely fun to shoot and made it easy for me. :)
