Colorful Capitola Beach Mini Session.

Bay Area colorful lifestyle family photography session on Capitola Beach by Tenley Clark Photography.

Capitola Beach is one of my all-time favorite places to go and to photograph at. The colorful houses that overlook the beach make my heart pitter-patter like no other. When thinking of a second location for our fall minis last year it occurred to me that it had been far too long since I had done a session there and thus that needed to be fixed.

I was so excited when this sweet family signed up for one of the spots. I had photographed adorable little Devyn for her model portfolio headshots previously and I so adored her and her mama. I was really excited to work with them again and meet the other half of this wonderful family. We had so much fun playing in the sand and sun. I really think we made the most of those 20 minutes. Take a look:

Fall Minis at the garden.

Bay Area lifestyle family photography session at Elizabeth Gamble Gardens in Palo Alto by Tenley Clark Photography.

Each Fall I photograph a ridiculous amount of mini sessions. I adore all of the families I’ve had the honor of photographing so this is my way of trying to make sure I don’t have to turn away as many of those people away since Fall is so busy. It’s exhausting but so worth it. I feel so blessed and lucky each and every year.

This last year I photographed over 70 mini sessions! That’s not even including the regular sessions I shot. Because I photograph so many AMAZING families I leave Fall with a full heart and a hard drive jam-packed with beautiful images. Come the new year I feel so overwhelmed at what to share that I often freeze up and don’t share anything. Well I’m trying my best to break the seal and share some of my favorite mini sessions (that I have permission to share). Here are some from my favorite garden, which was one of the 5 locations I shot at this fall =).

Sound + Vision- Bay Area Teen/Tween Fashion Editorial Photographer

Musician themed teen/tween fashion editorial at a record store for Halcyon Magazine by Tenley Clark Photography

My doctor’s office is across the street from the most amazing record store, On The Corner Music. All through my pregnancy one of us would take Zack across the street to peruse and pick out a record while we waited for my appointment. Every time I went in there I would dream of doing a photoshoot there but each time I was too chicken to ask the owner. When I was asked by Halcyon Kids to contribute an editorial for one of their issues I knew this would be the perfect kick in the butt to finally ask. The owner could not have been nicer about it and I was able to make it happen. I was thankfully able to get three of my favorite models to join in the fun: Sally and Violet (MDT Agency and Zuri Talent) and Grace (JE Model).

This shoot was so much fun to style! I also enjoyed getting to do a little bit different of an edit than I typically do. Here are some of my personal favorites:
