I adore this family for a number of reasons.  They’re kind, loving, beautiful (inside and out) and serve the Lord.  They are funny and welcoming and warm.  You can see the light within them!  Meet the Stathams… grandparents and grandchildren.  Enjoy some of my favorite images from their session in Orangevale.

I was editing a recent session and came across a series of images I took in an effort to get ONE where kids were smiling with mom and dad.  As any family photographer knows, this can be a challenge with children sometimes.  These brothers were total hams.  I’ll share more in a later post but I thought this would be a fun little addition to my blog.

The photo below is the typical family photo, little one would not smile for the life of me!  It’s still a beautiful capture.  But, to get him to smile, we tried everything below!

And once older brother got going he was having a blast!  There were more in this series – if you can believe it – probably 5 or 6 I didn’t include.  It takes patience, a lot of smiles and laughs, and it’s worth it!

I love the colors that Lupe selected for her family photos this year.  The aquas and gray blended so beautifully with the Old Sacramento buildings.  This couple’s daughters are the sweetest and were such a joy to work with.  With such easy smiles and cheery demeanor, this family was a breeze to work with!  I hope to see them again!

I always enjoy photographing sessions in Old Sacramento.  The store fronts and buildings provide pretty urban backdrops and there’s always night light to play with.  I met the Rodriguez family recently for their family photography session.  It was fun walking through town with them and pausing at unique locations for their photos.  They are a fun and loving family and such a joy to be around.  To my surprise, I ran into one of the couples at church.  Some things aren’t coincidence!  I hope to see this family again next year!
