BFF Portraits in Downtown Tiburon

In January I decided to begin offering a new type of session geared specifically for kids (read mostly girls) between 9 and 13.  The age more commonly know as "tweens".  So, I contacted a former client, asked if she would like to round up a few good friends and meet me in downtown Tiburon for my newly minted be-Tween sessions.

Then end up frustrated, tired of the hoards of shoppers all doing the same thing and decide “Oh, screw it, I’ll just send a New Year’s greeting

The T Family Portraits at Heather Farms in Walnut Creek

Imagine, if you will, a warm summer afternoon, soft diffused light coming from the slightly overcast skies and bouncing off the trees and green, green grass.
