What To Wear | Sacramento Family Photographer

Like me, many of my clients would love a little help planning clothing for their family photo session. It can be a daunting task, really. So I give them help by providing them with information in their client welcome packet and I provide as much advice as they desire. I have had clients take photos of all the outfits organized on the floor for me to see and I have had clients take pictures at stores while shopping. It's all great! I love to be involved because clothing is a very important part of the shoot! I love what coordinating outfits, textures, accessories, textures and colors can do. Doing it well will really enhance the photos and make the family just POP for the viewers eye.

All that being said, here is some more help for my amazing clients. I am getting pretty booked for the next few months and I look forward to seeing what is coming my way in terms of clothing choices. I know it's hard to make these decisions, but while the weather is still warm, check out these examples. You can either go buy what is shown, or use it as a starting point... a springboard, if you will, for your own choices. Either way, I hope it helps get your creative juices flowing! Enjoy the journey...I look forward to capturing some amazing beauty while photographing your family!

Beautiful Sarah | Natomas Charter Sacramento High School Senior Photographer

Meet Sarah. She is one of my amazing and wonderful senior reps for this year! She is an beautiful individual, inside and out. She actually shares several passions of mine, which made it really fun to hang out during our shoot. She is super sweet with a very caring and carefree attitude about life. I loved spending the time with her and getting to know her better during our time together.
She really rocked the shoot. But she is also pretty darn talented behind the camera as well! She started a photography club at Natomas Charter and takes some sweet images!

Her sweet spunky personality just makes you smile when you are with her. I'm telling you, she is a real blessing to be around!
I loved that she wanted to incorporate her love of reading and education into her shoot! We had so much fun nearly taking over this small bookstore!
We ended in a wide open field and got some shots of her softer beautiful and elegant!

So Precious | Santa Rosa Newborn Photographer

I had the honor of  capturing this precious 4 day old in Santa Rosa just a couple days before leaving for my vacation. I'm so glad she came a little early as I might have missed the prime time to get these adorable sleepy shots. It's always best to capture newborns within the first 10 days of life if you want these types of images, and my ideal is 4-7 days. So she caught me before I went and the fabulous drive to Santa Rosa was even more greatly rewarded when I got to meet sweet J.
I love baby parts. So tiny, so precious, so sweet. Love her little toes here. I also love how they are so bendy...they are so used to their comfortable womb stay, this is their preference at 4 days old. Well, usually. Sweet J was wanting to stick one leg out during a good part of the session. It was adorable.

I love capturing motherly love.

  The beautiful family...I'm thinking that she might be pretty darn good lookin'!
She was so tiny that this darling cocoon just enveloped her, but I love the way it a little pea in the pod!
I just couldn't resist this one! Dad is already wrapped around her littlest finger and she seems to know it! Love!
