Ruby reached out to me to photograph the newest edition to their family, their 6 month old baby, Azad! She wanted a family photoshoot and also wanted to recreate some of the images from their pre-wedding photoshoots. I personally love recreating pictures from past because they tell such amazing stories! I have a lot of pictures of my own family re-created. We looked through her pre-wedding photos and short listed a bunch which we would try to recreate.

She suggested Baylands Park in Sunnyvale for the photoshoot. I personally scout every location before I photograph my clients there. Although the park is beautiful with vast expanse and a view of San Jose mountains, it looked pretty burned and brown.

So I suggested Almaden Meadows Park for the Family Photoshoot. This park had wild mustard growing in at the time. I am so glad Ruby trusted my suggestion and we shot at Almaden Meadows Park. Her Red dress complemented the yellow mustard and the tall golden grass so well!

When we met, Azad warmed up to me pretty quickly and we spent an amazing evening together singing Baby Shark and looking for ceiling fans all through the park! Ruby and Raj had such cute chemistry, I had to take a shot of just the two of them! Theirs was such a sweet family and I am so glad I got to be a part of this little slice of their life.


What to wear at a Family Photoshoot?

A lot of times Families ask me what should they wear at a photoshoot. Here are the 4 things I tell them:

  • Choose your color palette. Think in terms of tones: blue tones, earth tones, neutrals, pastels, etc. Pick 2 to 3 colors that will make the outfit of the entire family

  • Don’t match! Coordinate The days of wearing matching clothes are a thing of past! Mix patterns and solids, don’t be afraid to add a pop of color, think about layers.

  • Skip the logos Nothing distracts away from a photograph than a big logo or text on an outfit

  • Use your style Do not let Pintrest guide your decision, choose what you love to wear and go from there
