Folsom Family Photography, Granite Bay California - Sergey Bidun
Folsom Family Photo Session by Bidun Studio Photography


Family photography at a fun and relaxing location - Folsom Lake in Granite Bay is your top choice for amazing family portraits. After months of photography location scouting, our Sacramento photography team has found out that the Folsom Lake is one of client favorite places for family portraits. Having photographed this sweet couple’s wedding years ago, we were super excited to document their beautiful family now with three handsome sons! This was such an amazing opportunity to spend some time with them and create memorable family portraits.

Having three energetic boys at a family photo session is no easy task, but the little challenges is what makes the photography experience more fun and memorable. We always appreciate when our clients prepare for their family photo session and take into consideration our tips on wardrobe styling, color matching and everything else. It’s always a great idea for outdoor photo sessions, to dress up boys in white tops and dark/jeans bottoms. These tones are not distracting and complement beautifully into the nature family photography locations. Mom wore a peach maxi dress, and it was just the perfect outfit to get enough pop of color into their portrait session.

When the family just arrived to Folsom Lake in Granite Bay, we didn’t jump into photo-taking mode right away. It’s very helpful to let the client or family to relax and get used to the surroundings and to the camera. The Sacramento family photographer, Sergey Bidun was very excited to catch up with this family, since they were his wedding clients a few years back. It’s always very special to know that so many families out there trust us in creating their family legacy, and value the work we put into it. This Sacramento family was so sweet and interesting to photograph, that our time just flew by!

Considering that this family photography session was during summer time, we definitely had plans to jump into water at some point of the shoot. Our goal at this Folsom family photo session was to capture some portraits with the family all together, then in smaller groups and individual portraits, and at the end cool off at the beautiful lake with some fun moments. Our main photography location spot was a beach between Granite Beach and Dotons Point. The beach was surprisingly all clear that evening, which was perfect for the family photo session. We used all the natural props that we could find at the beach for more creative portraits, such as different size rocks, large logs, and just the beautiful surroundings at Folsom Lake. All three young boys were such troopers, they seemed to fully enjoy the family photo session and were so energetic til the end! This family is truly blessed with such well behaved children.

The reason why Bidun Studio Photography enjoys photographing families so much, is because we enjoy seeing the authentic relationships between family members, their love for each other and the true emotions. Having an opportunity to capture such special moments in people’s lives and to preserve these memories in images that they can enjoy for lifetime, is truly the greatest reward for our Sacramento family photography team. Family photo albums and family portraits on the wall are some of the most important objects for your Folsom family photo session. There is a huge importance of family portraits and family history, and it’s up to all of you in how you will share these memories from one generation to the next. At our Sacramento photography studio we offer a wide range of products that many families love to invest in, including beautiful leather family albums, metal portraits and canvas galley wraps for the walls, and others. It’s really up to each individual family how they want to display their family artwork.

As the Folsom family session was coming to an end - sun was setting more and more down, we decided to finally go loose and not be afraid to get wet. The golden hour light was just perfect, giving very soft light for our family and children portraits. Everything worked out just the way that we all hoped for. We took some pretty amazing romantic portraits of the parents themselves, in the Folsom Lake water. Boys loved splashing in the water with each other, as we were quickly capturing candids. Sergey Bidun witnessed again and again how remarkably close the children are with their parents, and how they love spending time in each other’s company. There was a feeling of love, respect and trust between family members, and Folsom family photographer was enjoying capturing every moment.
