I had a lot of fun at this shoot awhile back. We laughed a lot! They laughed a lot. A good time was had by all… even Mike I think had fun. We had the “kids” a long with us for part of the shoot. These kids are just as busy has human ones. It was fun to do something different though. Dogs are always part of people’s families so I am glad when they suggested bringing their “kids” with them 🙂blog_0028blog_0029blog_0030blog_0031blog_0033blog_0034



The F family | Davis, Ca Lifestyle Photographer

I LOVE meeting new people, it is one of the perks of this job. I am so glad I was able to get this family in. Originally I was all booked when they inquired but something opened up and I was able to get them in… isn’t it lovely when that happens? :). I can’t wait to watch this family grow. We had fun together… doing what little ones do, playing in the leaves, throwing rocks in the pond, hanging out with Mommy & Daddy. Yep- it was a fun afternoon by all accounts!blog_0014blog_0016blog_0018blog_0019

Novemeber Mini Shoot Sucess | Sacramento, Photographer

Mini shoots were a huge success this year! I mean huge! I just loved every session. Met GREAT new clients, got to visit with my favorite past clients as well. I felt so blessed to do these sessions for family. You might be asking “What is a mini session” Well they are marketed days that I set aside to do multiple shoots. Sessions are about 25 minutes and they are a great way to get that Christmas Card picture you need, or just update your family photo. I had many return clients for a fun fall session, though I has just shot them in Spring. I loved seeing all the kids grow just a little bit.

Here are some of my favorites from my time with you all!



O Family | Davis Ca, Photographer

I can’t believe it has nearly been a year since I saw this family. In true kid fashion, little JP decided a 15 minute nap was long enough on picture day… but you’d never know by these pictures. We still coaxed a smile out of him a few times :). Such a sweet little family. They are great!

JBweb--12JBweb--13It was super fun to do something different. I would not normally do “studio” work but this was something fun and different. I am glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and did something new. How precious are these two.
