a ray of sunshine | sacramento senior photographer

I always love senior sessions. They are so relaxed, fun, and the subject actually wants to have their picture taken so it’s a win-win for everyone. I’ve photographed beautiful {T} and her family before, but this time it was all about her. We chose Capitol Park as our location and it provided a really beautiful backdrop (and some interesting, yet memorable interactions with the locals–poor {T} was even proposed to by one man wandering the grounds. And Jen, “Is that a baby doggy in your bag?”)

We were so lucky to have a day without rain. I was seriously about ready to get out my hammer in preparation for building an Ark. The skies cleared just in time for our session and we had some amazing light. If you don’t know, photographers love light. Like love it so much we could just gobble it up! Beautiful light is just so yummy and this light was delicious!

{T}, I had a great time with you and am so grateful neither of us fell out of that tree! I hope you love your senior pictures and enjoy every moment of your last year in high school–you deserve it!Blog1Blog5Blog3Blog4Blog2

bold and bright | sacramento child photographer

Oh my cuteness! I know I have said it before, but it bears repeating–I have the absolute cutest clients around. These dolls have to be some of the most beautiful sisters I have ever laid eyes on. I was so excited to photograph them again this weekend and was over the moon when Mom pulled out all of their outfits–color, color, and more color! As a photographer I love to photograph color, and to me, the brighter the better. There is something so fun and playful–something that just screams childhood–about bright, bold colors.

And Mom totally knows my style. I love when she pulled out one of the wardrobe changes and said, “You’re going to go out this week and get this one, aren’t you?” And you know what? I already had the outfit for my own little girl! Talk about being in sync! Love it! I also have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of their faces around here. Some of the images from their session have become my favorites and I plan to use them in my new marketing materials.

Mom, I know you’ve been waiting so patiently for this sneak peek, so without further ado…your gorgeous daughters.Blog5Blog3Blog4Blog1

let them eat cake | sacramento baby photographer

The biggest compliment to me is when a client comes back to take more images of their child. I absolutely love when I see a familiar name in my inbox requesting a future session. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. That they liked their pictures so much they chose me again as their photographer. What an honor!

I was so excited to see {J} for his one year session this weekend. Last time I photographed {J} he was just four months old–and adorable at that! You’ll recognize him up in my header with those stunning baby blues. Well, he’s even cuter at one year (if that’s possible!) and we had such a great time yesterday at our shoot. Unfortunately the weather was horrendous and we had to stay indoors, but it worked out perfectly for our cake smash session. One year olds + cake = an adorable mess!Blog2Blog1Blog4Mom–thank you so much for choosing me to capture {J’s} one year images. I had a great time and hope you love your sneak peek! I’ll let you know as soon as your full gallery is ready!
