My name is Annie Tao. I am a photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I specialize in lifestyle photography where you get to play, hang out, and be yourself. I capture the moments, real emotions and stories that occur during our time together. Check here often or subscribe to my blog (RSS feed) to see what I am up to or get creative inspiration.

A darling family who live and play at the beach had a very specific goal in mind: to capture photos of them doing their thing! Things like walking on a wooden bridge, exploring caves, climbing on rock walls, and investigating the tide pools during low tide may sound exciting, but they are not out-of-the-ordinary activities for The W Family. This is their life in Half Moon Bay.
To make this shoot of a gorgeous family in a gorgeous location even better, the rain storm that sat over the Bay passed through just before the start of their shoot. This unveiled the most beautiful sky!
So Tom, Heather, Quin, Rouri and Noni enjoyed the beach, as they usually do.
With plenty of balloons, shiny confetti, markers, the comfort of their home, and relaxed parents, the kids of the L Family were happy as clams.
Lucy and Scott knew that they could plan and plan, but in the end, their photos would turn out best when they allowed their kids to be just that… kids! Lucy even told me that the morning after their shoot, her kids asked if they could “do more photos with Annie today”! That is the true measure of a successful shoot because it speaks to the family’s experience. Well, that, plus the photos!
So check out this super fun Lifestyle Photography session at the L Family’s gorgeous home. There were so many cute surprises!
