Family Photo Session at West 12 Ranch Studio

The V. family has been with me since the early days of my photography journey. That’s a wonderful part of my job — that I’ve been with the same families who have trusted in me to document their stories for years. I get to see their children grow, into their personalities and through phases of childhood. I wasn’t sure I’d get the chance to photograph the V’s this year since they have moved out of town, but serendipitously they were in town and we scheduled a date.

West 12 Ranch is an outdoor photography studio in Lodi. I love that I can shoot here relatively easily, being so close as a Sacramento photographer. There’s so much variety and the people that run it are always so welcoming and warm. And although the wind was a force to be reckoned with that day, West 12 made for the perfect setting for our shoot. We were also happy to shoot here for a second time together. The first was several years ago when the oldest child was a toddler, and we recreated a shot from that previous session. I’ll have to find it an update this post with a side-by-side.

One more thing before you scroll through this session. The V. family always impresses me with their outfits! The colors, the coordination, different textures. They always look this good.

If you would like to book a session with me, please email me! I absolutely love to create imagery and memories like these.
