The Corrdashians | Sacramento Family Photographer

 This session was a grand adventure! We had a ton of fun and encountered a scary pitbull, laughed and drove and got some fabulous shots of this gorgeous family. I love the fact that one of their friends called them the "Corrdashians" after viewing the sneak peek so I had to steal it to use here.
 I was impressed with their adorable doggies. One, for staying calm during the whole pitbull issue (truth be told, I think we were divinely protected from an incident because none of the dogs seemed to notice each other), and two, because they smiled so nicely for me during the photo. I discovered some fun doggie tricks that help them focus a bit more, though they do make me look rather silly in the process.
 See? They rocked it! Love this one.
Here are the cute posed kiddos...and below are the kiddos as they are..true siblings at play.

 I was so pleased that they fell in love with their images..and loved that they were up for the setting. It was a blast.

 These gals can rock it!
Thanks again, sweet C family for a great session! May your holidays be blessed and may your huge wall portraits remind you how you can all rock it!

A River Wedding | Sacramento Wedding and Engagement Photographer

 I am thrilled to show you some images from a gorgeous wedding I shot with the amazingly talented Wendy Hithe of Wendy Hithe Photography. It was a beautiful wedding and both the bride and Wendy were a dream to work with. It took place at the the beautiful Le Rivage Hotel  in Sacramento. The River was so beautiful in the background for this stunning wedding. Shannon and Sean had the wedding of their dreams and it was such an honor to be there to help capture it!

 I just adored this tender moment between the mother of the groom and the bride. It was so sweet, and so neat to be able to capture that moment in time.
I couldn't help but capture the way the groomsmen set down their glasses and beers while taking their formal shots. It's like they got to be part of the wedding as well.

 Shannon and Sean, the happy couple!
 They had such a fun bridal party..everyone was so thrilled and happy for them on their big day!

 The sun was perfectly setting ...such a beautiful back drop to a romantic scene..

 The cake and flowers were stunning. Bella Bloom did a wonderful job on the floral design; I just loved the colors!

Shannon's sweet new daughter in law gave the sweetest toast. There could not have been a dry eye in the room!

Consider It All Joy {Southern California Newborn Photographer}

Our family has been blessed by a brand new baby girl! Alexis Joy was born to the great delight of our family and specifically, to my youngest brother and his beautiful wife. Brother Anthony welcomed her with great happiness as well! She is perfect, just perfect.
 I had the great pleasure of capturing her in the first days of her life on a trip to Southern California, where I grew up and my brother still lives. The experience was true to Alexis' middle name: an utter Joy! She was such a doll and slept well for me, allowing me to get her into those sweet little newborn positions and making room for her brother to grab her sweet little toes and kiss them with all his love.
 Yes, she is adored by all. Who can blame us!?

 I love how we caught some "smiles" at this tender age. Clearly, she loves her daddy already!

 I just couldn't resist this! Now if this had been a client of mine, and not a relative, I may not post this sweet and silly spontaneous moment on the blog, but since it's my blood (and since I know my brother and sis-in-law are OK with it), I just had to share. I hope it's not TMI, but it really was a funny moment!

 Back to some sweet tenderness with daddy...

We love you so much, Alexis Joy! Welcome to the world!! Love, your auntie Lisa xoxo

Capitol Fun! | Sacramento Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing this darling little boy when he was just 6 months old with his beautiful mama. Remember this darling face?
And now look at him! Even cuter as time goes on! He is quite the little prodigy...leaning the violin at two years old and keeping his parents wrapped tightly around his little finger!
Daddy got to join in this time and it was fun to roam around the capitol to see what we could see...

It was just a beautiful day. And this family made the most of it!

Love. I feel so blessed when my clients keep coming back to me to document their lives. It's something that is truly valued and cared for..the preservation of a family captured in images. Thanks for including me, precious G family!
