If you don't have a specific location in mind, that is totally okay! Based off of the information you give here, I can make suggestions for locations that best fit what you describe. Please also note where in the Bay Area you are from and/or where you'd like to shoot near. (i.e. Brentwood, Walnut Creek, San Francisco)
(Some things to think about, for example, are whether you want to shoot in an urban area or out in nature, whether you'd prefer to be in a grassy field, in a cute downtown area, or by the ocean.)
If you have something in mind, please feel free to send over a Pinterest link or send photos to my email as well.
This could include a blanket, a sign with your family's last name, or even cute chair or blanket you have lying around to allow for some posing options. Anything that would help make the session extra unique and creative.
Knowing the color schemes and the formality of what you plan to wear can help me decide on locations to suggest and plan out ideas for our session. While I normally don't promote full-on matching for family sessions, It is a good idea to pick a general color scheme for outfits to avoid clashing colors.
