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:

Garden Fun- Palo Alto Lifestyle Family Photographer

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

Do you ever write a long message and then realize later that you totally forgot to hit send?  I will typically be texting someone back and then one of the kids does something to pull me away. I will think I’ve sent it because I remember writing it but then realize later on that wasn’t the case. Please tell me I’m not the only one! Well, I just realized that this blog post has been sitting in my drafts for months and I totally thought I had posted it. It’s a total crime because it’s one of my favorite sessions ever. I just adore this sweet family!!!

Charlotte (JE Kids)

Bay Area kid’s model headshot session at Elizabeth Gamble Gardens in Palo Alto by Tenley Clark Photography

Oh Miss Charlotte!!!! This girl is a plethora of personality in the cutest little package you ever did see! She had me laughing so hard and at times I had to look away because the cuteness levels were too much to handle. From her epic dance moves (from ballet to hip hop lol) to her awesome robot impression we had a blast at her session! I could seriously hang out with this peanut every day.

Fun fact: I had actually seen Charlotte in Parents magazine a few months prior. They did a little write-up on her since she was featured in an editorial in that issue. I remember thinking, “I need to photograph that girl!” and lo and behold her mom contacted me for a session.
