There are so many amazing locations for portrait sessions in the Bay Area. Choosing a spot that is meaningful to you is a good starting point. Beyond that it's good to think about what fits your personality best -- beautiful architecture, the beach, a golden field, flowers, wooded areas, something with more of an urban feel, perhaps?
