Teresa O'Brien Photography bio picture
  • Hello + Welcome!

    I call hilly San Francisco home with my husband and wild child. I like wild, so I'd have it no other way. When I am not with my boys, I love to be out capturing life - people - in a fun and real way. It is work, but I get to laugh, play, cheer, and get excited … a lot.

    Thanks for stopping by to visit my journal! Please make sure to leave a comment because I'd love to hear from you. It definitely makes my day.

    Hope we connect some day soon!
    Teresa

It’s been a crazy fall season as I juggle the work and family calendar.  But I am elated to say that I have finalized the dates for our annual holiday sessions!  I’ve gotten fancy all.  To make life easier on you and save you precious time, I designed an online page for you to choose a session time and location.  Sheer minutes without all the back and forth of email!  Check it out and book your holiday session here!  

To give you a taste of what locations look like, I have included a sample below.

 

Golden Gate Park:  There are a couple locations I like to use – one being this lush area (yes lush in our time of drought!) and the bandshell area by the DeYoung.

Presidio:  Love this area for its shade, trails and pine trees that give it a holiday feel.

Crissy Field:  I love the open wide skies and buildings.

Downtown:  Quintessential San Francisco.  I normally do not shoot here, but once this mom texted me the girls’ outfits, I instantly chose this spot.

Golden Gate Bridge Overlook:  One of my favorite secrets.  Less crowded, awesome angle of the bridge, old barracks, and trees.

Its not often we see families with three kids in the city.  But when I get a chance to photograph larger families, I jump at the chance. Within our session, lots of personality traits shine through from utter joy to quiet moments. I think by the end they were all starving and ready for a nap.  😉

Sometimes with kids its like they are just running circles around you. Literally.
