Photo by Nicole Paulson Photography

I love capturing the candid moments between you and your family. During our session, you can expect to keep moving, play a few games with your kids, and have some fun while I guide you into natural poses. I tend to make a fool of myself :-) I love hanging out with your kids and capturing those natural smiles. Your final gallery will be a mix of posed and candid images.  My end goal is for you to walk away from your session with images of your family that make you smile.

About Me!

Hi there! I’m Amy Anderson, and I've been a photographer for over 20 years. Since starting our family 10 years ago, I've been photographing families, children, babies, maternity, and weddings. After working with Nicole Paulson and Jen Frase at Nicole Paulson Photography in San Francisco for 6 years, I ventured out on my own to start Twig + Oak Photography. My passion is photographing families and children, but I'm also available to photograph events and small weddings (under 40 guests).

My husband and I live in Walnut Creek with our two kiddos Ellie (10) and Ryan (8). We are both Bay Area natives, and I feel so incredibly lucky to live in an area with so many different landscapes and scenery. My favorite locations include sunsets among the open space and lots of oak trees. Please inquire with any questions! I'd love to work with you!

Amy :-)
