Vineyard Family Photos | Kristen Hazelton Photography

Family photoshoot at golden hour in vineyards in Livermore, CA
Hi, I'm Kristen!
I'm an award-winning senior portrait and family photographer based out of Chicago and the San Francisco Bay Area. I love sunshine, cacti, chocolate chips, and a great cup of tea - but most of all I love photographing joyful clients. :)

I love this family! They are loving and lovely people, and I’m so glad they thought of me when they needed their family portraits updated…when they said suggested vineyard family photos in their backyard I was so excited! Thanks for getting dolled up for a beautiful sunset portrait session amongst the grape vines in Livermore, CA!

This is one of my favorites!

They were laughing while arranging themselves because they thought they looked like “mustard, ketchup, and two pieces of white bread!”

What beautiful, happy smiles – probably laughing at their big dork of a photographer. This family made my job easy!

Haha, these sisters specifically mentioned that they wanted this shot!

They later told me that they planned to print and put these shots of the sisters up in their rooms. I love that they’ll have prints to help keep their wayward sister close by in their thoughts if not in person. 🙂

Part of the reason why they’re smiling for this shot it because I was nearly face-down in the gravel trying to get it! This is why photographers don’t wear nice clothes, haha!

Their second eldest is going on a missionary trip so I asked if they’d say a prayer for her…and I think these shots are some of my favorite and most meaningful of the whole photo shoot!

She is going to be well missed at home, but she’s going to have such big, great adventures as a missionary in South America!

Thank you all for a fun and beautiful session! I’m so glad when you thought of vineyard family photos you thought of ME to be your photographer!
