Ramsey Family Bay Area Session


There’s no better feeling than when a fellow photographer asks you to photographer their family. So when Lisa asked me to capture their fall family photos, I was super excited and honored! Lisa is the owner of Lisa Kathleen Photography and we became friends about a year ago on Instagram. She lives in the Bay Area in California and I often travel there to visit my family. So we planned her shoot while I was there for Thanksgiving. 

The weather was absolutely beautiful in the Bay Area the day of the session and Lisa introduced me to the most gorgeous location! I got there early to scout and all of a sudden the butterflies took over and I got a little nervous! That happens every time I shoot with another photographer. Will I look like I know what I’m doing? Will they judge my workflow! What if they hate the photos?! But as soon as their family arrived, the jitters went away. I felt an instant connection with Lisa and her kiddos and the whole session went smoothly! 

When I sent Lisa her gallery, this was her response:

“I didn’t want to say anything before because I didn’t want to scare you but my kids are AWFUL for photos. But they related to you and loved you and it made all the difference. You captured their little personalities perfectly.

I wish I could actually put into words what these photos mean to me. First photos of my family of five and first ones that both Mike and I have loved. Even the pics of Mike and I…I have never had a photographer take a picture of the two of us that I loved and I love these! THANK YOU!!!”

As nervous as I get, I absolutely loved documenting other photographers and their families! So if you’re planning a trip to Arizona, please reach out and let’s do a shoot together!
