Oakland California is one of the most beautiful cities in the Bay Area. One of it's most distinctive features is a lake in the middle of town. Lake Merritt is a scenic jewel in the center of an urban landscape. I am very fortunate to have it directly at the front door of my studio. That makes it very convenient for me to schedule family portrait sessions there, but honestly I booked sessions there even before I relocated the studio to Grand Ave. It is worth the drive for many reasons.

There are plenty of unique trees that make great posing aids for family portraits all around the Lake Merritt. One day I will research the type of trees that stud the shores of the lake. While I don't know their name, I do know that they grow into some really interesting unusual shapes. There are lovely grassy knolls and in the Spring time, beds of wild daisies and trees dripping with cherry blossoms. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the flocks of wild geese that will meander through your portrait background!
