San Francisco Bay Area Family Photographer

Family photography is one of my niches.  Family sessions include anything from a mom and dad to be (maternity), parents with babies and young children, parents and older children, all the way up to extended families.  I love to meet everyone and get a feel for the family dynamics that go on, and the fun relationships that make their family unique.  Family sessions are generally a happy time where we can take lots of photographs, make memories, and capture them.

I think you will find that a family photography session with me is laid back, loosely posed, fun, and stress free.  I am great with children of all ages, and strive to capture real smiles, genuine reactions, and special moments that you actually care about when you get your pictures back.  No one wants pictures that remember an awful time spent trying to beg children to smile, bribery, and the like…I try and play games, creating moments that illicit the responses we want.

It’s been a busy year capturing families of all sorts…bellies, young children, and beyond!  I took a blogging break, and now am ready to share some of my favorite images of awesome people that I saw this year. I’m unbelievably grateful for the repeat families that come to me year upon year…they are a bright spot in my schedule, and I absolutely love seeing kids grow bigger.  I love families and people of all shapes and sizes, and I cannot wait to share all of these pictures with you!

If you are located anywhere in the Bay Area or Central Valley, I would love to meet you and your family, so please contact me today!  I have special rates specifically for Tracy, CA sessions, so please be sure to ask if you are in that area (or willing to travel to that area).

San Francisco Bay Area Newborn Photographer

It’s been a busy year here at Angela Chandler Photography…lots of newborn babies have been photographed…tons of sweetness!  Here is a tiny sample of what I’ve been up to.  There is nothing like photographing newborns.  They are so soft and wrinkly and new.  I love capturing all the tiny details…lashes, lips, noses, and those wonderful smiles that just happen accidentally.

If you are pregnant (or know someone who is), I would love to photograph your newborn baby!  The first two weeks of life is ideal and a great way to welcome your little one to the world.  I take great care in creating a warm environment, and now that I’m entering my 12th year of business, I’m excited to offer incredible experience with babies.

Babies are precious, and one of a kind.  You usually just have a few weeks to capture that sleepy, curly “newness” before longer wake times set in, and they need to be wrapped, etc.  So be sure to contact me today to get on the calendar for your session!  Is your baby older than that?  No worries!  We can still get cute pictures at any phase in life.  Don’t hesitate to ask about what we can do for different ages and stages in babyhood.  It can be all overwhelming, but I’m here to help guide you through the process.  For more information, please email me, or pop over to Facebook to see even more examples of baby pictures!

Photographs are something that will stay your memories of a specific time in life, forever.  My kids love to look back on their baby pictures…they love seeing what they looked like back then and the memories we started creating with them even as young as newborns!  I would love to be a part of creating those memories with your family.  I offer sessions from newborns, older babies, birthday milestones, family sessions, older kids, seniors, weddings, and the like!

Casa Real Wedding| Livermore, CA wedding photographer

It was a wonderful evening in January…a beautiful evening with love in the air at a beautiful venue in the Livermore valley, CA.  This gorgeous venue is a great place to say your vows, and celebrate the beginning of your new life together with dinner, dancing, cake, and all the fun traditional elements of which a wedding day consists.

This day, Nick and Jen, said they would be with each other forever.  A beautiful couple surrounded by their family and friends, said “I do” in front of a gorgeous white fire place inside Casa Real.  It was a candlelight ceremony that set a perfect mood for the winter night ahead of them.  I loved being with them on their big day, capturing sweet memories for them, gorgeous flower details, special moments, and all the fun.  They had thought of absolutely everything that was special to them…pictures, flowers, ring surprises, the room, the food, the snacks, the music, and everything in between.

I was glad that the weather was good, and held out that day for no rain…sun, and that gave us an opportunity to capture them in front of the best parts of the venue as well as the vineyard that lies behind Casa Real.  The vineyard, though bare this time of year, boasts a sort of rustic feel, and is definitely worth photographing a couple in it!

After the ceremony and pictures, the food and music really set the tone for the evening.  They had a Photo Booth, and really thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable the whole night!

If you just got engaged, I would love to be considered for your wedding day photographer!  Please contact me today for a meeting so we can discuss a package that suits your needs and how I can assist you!

Palo Alto, CA maternity photographer

I met this couple last night in the beautiful Gamble Gardens in Palo Alto, CA.  I love the spring there…everything is in bloom, all of the flowers are so colorful and gorgeous!  This adorable couple is expecting their first baby any day now!  It was so fun to capture their excitement and be able to see how much they already love their little one.  It was a gorgeous evening with warm weather, so it was wonderful to be out and photographing.

Enjoy a few pictures from their session!

Love those…so hard to pick a favorite!  I love shooting bellies and babies…are you expecting?  Please contact me today in order to get on the calendar.  I have had a crazy busy spring which prevents constant blogging…so please find me over on Instagram (AngelaChandlerPhotography) and Facebook.  I post more often over there and it’s easier to post just a few shots here and there…new babies, families, maternity sessions and all different kinds of portraits.

Los Altos, CA newborn baby photographer | 2 weeks old

It’s been 3 years since I’ve seen this family…almost to the day!  It was great to help them welcome in a new baby to the family!  Big sister was pleased as punch to be able to hold him, squeeze him, and kiss him!  It was so adorable…new baby brother, all dressed up and ready for his portraits, was so cute in some of the expressions he gave me too.  It had me believing that he was simply tolerating all the “love” that was being sent his way.  Too cute!  Enjoy!

He he he!  That last expression is so cute, kills me!

Are you looking for a newborn baby photographer in the greater bay area?  I would love to be able to send you some information.  Please contact me today through the contact button, and I will get back to you very quickly with portrait pricing, session agreement, and tips on what to wear.  I’m now booking for spring sessions as well.  Do you need a good Mother’s Day gift?  Please consider giving mom or mom-to-be a photo session.  She would love it, I promise 🙂

Newborn sessions and family sessions are my favorite to shoot.  I come to your home, or location of your choosing, and we capture all the pictures in a safe, warm environment.  Babies and older siblings generally are more comfortable in their own home.  There is no stress on mommy or daddy to have to gather up everything that one might need away from home, get ready, try and feed the baby before driving, etc.  I have all the props, blankets, hats, and headbands that one might need for a session, and I bring a nice selected variety with me.  Have you seen something on my site that you would like me to bring?  Simply mention it to me and I would be happy to bring it along.  Hope to see you soon!
