Happy New Year :: Monterey Family Portraits

Happy New Year! 2018 is off to a running start! Our first family session of the new year brought us to Monterey to photograph this beautiful family. Before they moved out of the Sacramento area, they were regular clients of mine. We decided it had been too long since our last session so I traveled to Monterey to have some fun on the beach with these sweet girls. We also visited Mission Ranch, which is one of my favorite places to shoot! In between clicks the girls searched for rocks and shells for their terrarium, and snuck a toe or two into the water. I hope this becomes an annual trip for us!

Here is a little peek at our adventures (click to enlarge):

Fall Mini-Sessions :: Folsom Families 2017

Our first round of Fall Mini-Sessions are complete! We had a handful of Folsom families out for our first local mini-session event and they are all adorable! Some I’ve photographed before, and others were first timers. By the end of the session they all felt like old friends to me! It can be challenging getting a family and children comfortable with me in just 20  minutes of time, but we did it! Here is a little peek at our session along Willow Creek.

FYI – walking or taking photos along train tracks is illegal and considered trespassing! These tracks are not out of use – but you can contact the Placerville & Sacramento Valley Railroad company to get permission and find out their schedule before using the tracks.

Fall Mini-Sessions 2017

It’s time to announce our Fall Mini-Sessions for 2017! The kids are back in school and the holidays will be here before you know it. Our mini-sessions make holiday cards and gifts so easy! And they aren’t just for the family. Want a quick business or senior portrait? A photo of or with your pet(s)? Want to capture that baby bump? It’s your 20 minutes, use it how you please!

Each session is 20 minutes long. While that may not sound like a lot of time, I have been doing this for 10 years now, and I know how to capture variety in a short amount of time. Plus young kids and camera shy adults will appreciate this abbreviated session. The location will be pre-determined and you’ll show up a few minutes before your designated time. 20 minutes later, you’re done! It’s that easy.

Our Fall Mini-Sessions also include an online viewing gallery, select retouching, your 5 favorite hi-res images delivered via digital download with print release, plus specials on prints, gifts and holiday cards! All for just $150.

I’m excited to announce some new locations this year! Check out the dates below:

9/30 – San Francisco (Crissy Field)

10/8 – Tahoe (Incline Village)

10/15 – Folsom/Foothills area

11/11 – Folsom/Foothills area

Exact times and locations TBD. These sessions SELL OUT every year, so if you know which date and location you want, grab it now by paying your retainer HERE. You’ll be contacted soon after to finalize details.

Folsom Family Portraits :: Lake Natoma Fun

It may seem like all my sessions are taken in the same place…they really aren’t! But I have been so ecstatic over the re-opening of a trail near my house and studio that I just can’t seem to stay away. It’s a great spot for families, seniors and engagement sessions. So you’ll probably see a lot more from this area for a while…

On to these cuties! I met little Cameron last Winter when his parents brought him in for a holiday mini-session at the studio. They were smart enough to take advantage of my summer special, bringing grandma and grandpa with them for a full family session. Cameron was not too sure about all the fuss at first, but one thing is for sure; he loves his grandparents!

Enjoy a sneak peek at this adorable Folsom Family (click to enlarge).

Welcome Home Cade :: Garden Valley Family Photography

Welcome home Cade! I just love seeing my wedding clients grow their families. I traveled out to Garden Valley last week to document the newest addition to the R family. Boy is he a cutie! His big brother still isn’t too sure about him, but I think he will grow on him eventually. Congratulations on a healthy, handsome little boy!

Oh Hello :: Meet Baby Aubrey

Meet Baby Aubrey! Isn’t she just the cutest? She surprised her parents (and photographer!) by arriving a little earlier than expected, but we were able to get her into the studio for her first photo session at just 8 days old. She was such a trooper and really just wanted to sleep. Milk + tropical temperatures make a great recipe for a happy, snoozy baby! Enjoy this first peek at Baby Aubrey.
