I first met Peter last year when he hired Holly Carlyle Photography to shoot the blessing of his marriage to Staci. Maybe you remember their bulldog, Chesty, who accompanied Peter and Staci along for their engagement session and who also became a cover model for one of many Bakotopia magazine covers that I shot last year. Peter is about to have a baby boy in the spring and he’ll be going back overseas next year as he serves in the United States Marine Corps.
Well I had the opportunity to do some more traditional portraits for this gorgeous family (Peter and his 4 sisters) recently as they decided they would love to give away portraits to their parents for christmas (I hope their mom and dad don’t see these…). Their dad is a die-hard San Francisco 49ers fan and recently gave the kids some jerseys in which they were very happy to get their pictures taken. Dad will be proud. It was a little chilly and gloomy the day we shot but the beauty of this family came shining through… Here are just a few of their pictures for Mom and Dad…(and one of Chesty from his “cover” shoot for good measure…)
And of course, Chesty!
