I Heart Faces | Wind {Sacramento Family Photographer}

This is a fun week over at I Heart Faces. The challenge is wind! I thought immediately back to my session the lovely L Family.  We had such an entertaining session (in so many ways!), not the least of which was the wind that would kick up from time to time in our little urban location. I went back through the images and found this doozy to share. Ah, the wind. Sometimes, it can just cause us to smile.. after it has first rubbed our nerves a bit!

Head on over to I heart faces for the rest of the entries..they are bound to be beautiful and fun!

Beautiful Birthday Girl {Sacramento Children's Photographer}

I'm so excited to share this post with you! I am debuting a little bit of what is to come in the future with some video "fusion" in my sessions. Though I don't have any video of this session captured, I have been playing with it and a slideshow like the one above is going to be part of it, so thanks for checking it out!

I had such a neat session with miss A and her mom, Kimberly, a friend and fellow photographer last weekend. I called her up and told her we just really needed to go out and shoot together to get her new camera broken in and played with. Little did I know it was perfect timing for her daughter's 12th birthday session! We had a grand adventure at the location I took them to, including some mud-dodging and non-so-much mud dodging. The light was fabulous, Miss A was gorgeous, and we had such a fun time shooting together.

Did you love that song with the video?! I chose to use it because I thought it would be so lovely for my friend while viewing the captures of her daughter. It is by a friend and one of my favorite vocalists, Shirley Bunnell. Beautiful, right?

Here are some of the images from the slideshow of the gorgeous Miss A:

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE sunflare? Love it!!

There's that yummy sunflare again:)
Gorgeous girl - inside and out! She was so wonderful and cooperative, too. A dream to capture.

Babies & Bumps {Sacramento Newborn and Maternity Photographer; Event Photographer}

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing this amazing "Babies & Bumps" event put on by Sacramento Parent Magazine. It was such a neat event that had tons of amazing sponsors and vendors, providing everything a mom-to-be or new mom could possibly want or need. It was great to see so many women being served in such a special way. I had a chance to chat with many of them and they were all so appreciative of the event and what it was providing for them. Needless to say, I took a ton of photographs, so this is just a small but fun sample of the event. If you are ever in the state of pregnancy or "new-momness" when this event comes around again, you should definitely check it out. You won't be dissapointed!

I think the image story above is so much fun! They had a station at the event to show the older siblings how to change diapers. It was A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E. And so helpful! The sweet older sibling above was a bit reluctant to go it alone, so Dad stepped up. How utterly SWEET is that!?

There were some fun vendors, including Elizabeth from Fancy Feet Dance Academy and Parties who entertained the older kids while the moms enjoyed the vendors.

All these older siblings were killing me!? Just how cute can you get?!
Music Matt was also there and the kids were VERY entertained by his talent. I hadn't ever seen him perform, but he was great with the kids and entertaining for all!

  More great lessons for the older kids..such a great event!

Pioneers {Sacramento Children's Photographer}

I am blessed with the privilege of being the photographer for both my sons' classes this year and I am loving it! I get to participate in all the events and see all these gorgeous and fun kiddos on a regular basis. This week is exciting week for the 4th graders. They are heading out to Sutter's Fort to experience the Old West in a very fun and educational overnight field trip. I will be there to capture the event and am sooo looking forward to it (though I'm hoping it doesn't rain!). But until then, I had to share some of the adorable pioneers. Every single one looked amazing in their period outfits...this is just a small sample!
