A Double Celebration | Sacramento Event Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing beautiful S's First Communion Celebration and her 8th birthday party last weekend. It was such a fun time with so much beauty and adventure for her. She is sure to remember it for a lifetime!
Not only did she have the commemoration of a wonderful spiritual time in her life, but she got to share it with so many family and friends who adored her and came to celebrate with her. It was really an amazing time and I was blessed to be there to capture it. 

Now hold on, sweet readers, there is lots to behold ahead, from tiaras, to swimsuits to pinatas. So much fun in one day!
Miss S was absolutely radiant in her dress and veil. And possibly even cuter with her darling brother by her side...


Her friends and family were tons of fun to capture as well!

And look how she adores her dad...I don't know, but I might venture to say she's got him wrapped around her little finger. :)

Yup. Wrapped.

And the true fun begins for an 8 year old girl!

Just as sweet and sassy as can be. To be fair, this was her "silly" face and I asked her for it :)

Thank you, fabulous photographer, Jackie Shandy-Pinto, for entrusting me to capture this special day for your daughter and family! I had a great time doing it and allowing you to enjoy the day with your family and friends. It truly was a privilege.

Fields of Beauty | Sacramento Portrait Photographer

I couldn't stand it any longer. Day after day while taking my kiddos to school I pass by some glorious, beautiful fields. They are constantly changing and last week, they were gold and fabulous. I just had to get out there and shoot! So I did. Here is beautiful J, modeling my fields :) Well, in reality, she is actually making the fields even more beautiful, don't you think?
We had a good portion of the golden hour to shoot in and, though we were on serious lookout for snakes and swatting major bugs, it was well worth it. I just love the outfit she chose and the fields were enveloping her in majestic beauty.
We went a little western and threw in the hat and I think this is one of my favorites of the evening. Followed of course by Miss J and her gorgeous laugh. Seriously, her inner beauty just emanates from her and makes her outward appearance even more fabulous!
While we were shooting, the sunset and the timing so close to Mother's day was reminding of us our loved ones - my sweet mom and her sweet mom-in-law - who have recently gone to their sweet glory in Heaven. This little lady bug and the stunning sunset set the stage for enjoying our memories of them and remembering them with love. I was so grateful for that! Thanks, Miss J, for coming out with me and enjoying such a special time!
