Family Portraits Bay Area by Dekker Photography takes the time to get to know you and your family in order to have a fun and creative family photography session. Our non-traditional imagery is so special in family portraits, because every family is different, and our photos are meant to make your personality stand out.
We take the time to engage with you and your family and capture the moments that are special to you. Your family photography sessions can take place in our versatile San Francisco studio, or at a mutually agreed upon location.
In our studio we have a variety of backdrops, sets and props that we can play with to create a variety of images. We usually suggest doing the family photo session in studio if you have a little one under the age of 1. The advantage to using the studio is that it allows us to use props when we have babies that are not quite sitting up by themselves, or not walking yet. We can capture those fun naked baby shots (we love those chunky legs and cute butt shots!) And even if there are older children in your family, we have plenty of fun things to engage their attention and have a family session that is relaxed, playful and captures the moment.
If you have kids a bit older, we absolutely love to get them outdoors for the family photography session. We can recommend some fantastic locations depending on the feel you are looking for and the personality of your family. Baker Beach and Crissy Field are great for that outdoor beach feel, and of course both locations have beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge. For the family that likes a more urban look, the Embarcadero is one of our favorite San Francisco locations with great views of some of San Francisco’s most iconic locations. And we love the funkiness of the Mission for those families that really want to think out side of the box for their family portrait.
We can also travel to any other location in the bay area that may be special to you and your family, the wine country of Napa and Sonoma, the hills in the East Bay, or some of the beautiful locations down the peninsula, just to name a few! Our ultimate goal is to capture you and your family’s personality to the best of our ability, creating images that will last a lifetime. After the session you will be able to decide how to best display your photos in a way that suites your family’s aesthetic. We offer many different products and packages that can be customized in the way that works best for you.
From custom albums, to interesting wall collages, to digital packages, we have something that works for all needs.
