Let me tell you a little about myself...

Bay Area Family Photographer

©Barbara Caruso Photography

I have a passion for story telling. Be it in film, on television, or through words and pictures. It's been my life's work. I was a TV/Film producer for more than a decade in both Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area, and have won numerous awards from film and television festivals for both producing and directing. I am also an award-winning, published author... and once upon a time, I was an actor. I am no stranger to being in front of, or behind the camera. If you asked me to sum up my creative career in one word, that word would be "Storyteller". It has been my lifelong passion. Photography is simply another extension of that passion.


Now, I want to tell the story of your family and your journey.

I specialize in family photography from the engagement, through the birth of your child. My style is authentic, unposed, bold and emotional. I am often told by clients that they chose me as their photographer, because my portfolio was full of families having fun! That's what I aim for. Custom photography isn't for everyone, and the investment isn't only a financial one. So if you book with me, I want you to enjoy the experience from start to finish and make beautiful memories with your family in the process.

The key to great photos is being relaxed, so I will guide you every step of the way to ensure that you have a wonderful experience.

I look forward to being your next Family Photographer and telling your family's story.
