Summer Family Photo Session at Mt. Diablo State Park

Here in the Bay Area, along with Summer come the hot days and the golden hills! As soon as that temperature rises and the rain stops, all the green quickly dries to a beautiful gold. These gorgeous hills are a classic backdrop for family photos, and a favorite among Bay Area photographers and clients alike. Mt. Diablo State Park offers many locations with stunning views to capture your family's story.

Many families like to wait until Fall to schedule their family photo session, but the Summer hills look almost identical to the way they look in Fall. So if the golden hills are the look you are going for, why not schedule a Summer family photo session at Mt. Diablo State Park? It's a great way to get that item checked off of your to-do list before the rush of back-to-school and alllll the holiday activities that are soon to follow! My calendar books up fast in the Fall, so a Summer photo session may also offer you more flexibility and availability.

Mom reached out for a Summer family photo session with me and selected this gorgeous location at Mt. Diablo State Park. It offers sweeping views, golden hills, and several trees, and we even got lucky with a colorful sky after the sun went down. There is some uphill walking involved, but so worth it!

The family played, cuddled, and simply loved each other while I captured their beautiful connection. My favorite thing to capture for my clients are those authentic joy-filled moments.

If you are interested in a Summer family photo session, this spot at Mt. Diablo State Park is one of my favorites to photograph families in the Bay Area. It is also perfect for maternity and graduate sessions, too! I'd love to chat with you and start planning your photo session!
