Fall Family Photography at American River, Sacramento CA - Sergey Bidun
Fall family photography at American River Park in Sacramento, California


Photo sessions at outdoor locations such as the American River Parkway are more personable and intimate, as many families can testify. Family photo sessions are a very special time as they bring families more close together while creating lasting memories. It's not about everyone dressing up in the same style outfits and posing for some pictures; it's more about the feelings and the experience that everyone gets out of this. For children, it may seem like a fun trip to the park where they can run around & be themselves, as a photographer captures these lively moments.

For parents, it's more about capturing their children's growth & milestones and valuing the time spent within their family circle. All of these things combined are what their family pictures will show as they display these images on the walls of their home. Choosing just the right location for family pictures is one of the most important tasks, and as one of Sacramento's premier portrait photographers, Bidun Studio Photography will gladly help you with this decision.

The American River Parkway that runs along the American River is a wonderful location for family and children portraits. This 32-mile parkway, which consists of many smaller parks, is a go-to place for many Sacramento photographers. At any time of the year, you will find gorgeous sceneries and natural backdrops at this location.


The fall colors, fall weather, fall mood… everything matches up for a perfect family time spent together with your favorite Sacramento family photographer, creating beautiful and authentic family portraits at a unique location. No wonder that many families are starting to book their fall family sessions at the end of the summer, trying to get a spot with their family photographer.

As this time of year is super packed with holidays, activities with kids, and other events, it’s a great idea to have your portraits taken ahead of time when you feel you are not rushed and can really enjoy the experience. At Bidun Studio Photography, we are ready to meet with you for a relaxed complimentary consultation at our Sacramento studio and start designing your custom family photo session.


This is how the family photography experience with the Sison family started. We met up with them in our Sacramento studio one late afternoon and quickly found out that this family is looking for beautiful and artistic family portraits to display at their home. Sison's family has three beautiful children - two sons and a daughter, as well as a little family dog.

During the photography consultation, we discussed outfit choices for the whole family, ideal locations, as well as their vision of family portraits. This type of consultation is so helpful in order to have the most successful photo session, and this principle applies to all kinds of portrait sessions. After viewing some of our recent portrait photography work, they decided that American River Parkway would be the best location for their family portraits.


The day of scheduled photo session came, and Bidun Studio family photographer met up with the family at the William B Pond park that’s located at the bank of American River, that’s in Sacramento, California. The Sison family all arrived in well color-coordinated outfits - thanks to the mood board that we created together for their family photo session.

Being one of my favorite outdoor location spots in Sacramento, the William B Pond park offers so many beautiful natural backdrops. With lots of greenery in the springtime and tall yellow grass in the summertime, it’s really up to each individual or family to decide which type of scenery complements their portrait photography session most! And with a gorgeous river nearby, we can get really creative family portraits and children portraits for your lifetime memories.


Before any portrait photo session, it’s ideal to get to know each member of the family on a personal level, which will result in a much more relaxed photo session and more authentic family portraits. It didn’t take much time for the three children and me to get acquainted with each other, and we proceeded with creative family portrait photography.

After getting all the group shots of the parents, children, and their family dog, we were free to take more artistic images of the smaller groups and individual portraits. Children were running around, enjoying a warm late-summer afternoon, the dog was happily racing children and some butterflies. The atmosphere at this Sacramento family photography session was at ease, and everyone was enjoying the gorgeous sunset.


The family photo session at William B Pond park ended with two older boys getting completely wet by splashing in the warm river water, but everyone really enjoyed the portrait taking and the time they spent together as a family. At Bidun Studio Photography, we know that it’s our commitment to provide gorgeous images with unforgettable memories to all of our portrait photography and family photography clients.

We show you that photos, like memories and stories, are part of our legacy. We hold photos close, and we pass them down. Family portraits are a gift to be able to share. They are a visual of moments, details, people, places and things to those we love, so that they, too, can feel even a ray of the joy we feel when we reflect on those times. Family photos can exhibit emotions that words cannot.
