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!

Heavenly Ski Resort holds a special place in Ashley and Ronnie’s hearts so they felt it was the perfect location for their intimate wedding.  With their closest friends and family in attendance, they said their “I do’s” overlooking the South Lake Tahoe valley.  It was a stunning day, the sun was bright and cheerful overhead as this couple, together with his two daughters, became a family.  Ronnie is a photographer in the Bay Area.  When he contacted me I was a little nervous, but honored, to have been selected.  As photographers, we are very selective about styles are perfectionists so to speak.  I was nervous because I wanted to perform extra well for him and his new bride.  When we finally met the day of their wedding, my nerves were put at ease with their laid back and happy personalities.  Congratulations to you both, I’m so happy I was there with you on your most special of days, and most importantly, I’m happy for your love!

I met Allie a few months ago when I was in need of a new accountant.  Not only is she super fabulous and easy to work with but she’s so helpful!  I’ve learned so much from her already.  When we met for her photo session I got to meet her family for the first time.  They are a very connected family unit – fun, rambunctious and loving!  Here are some favorites from their session.

My fall mini sessions were such a hit that I decided to create a holiday mini session special!  I have two different options for this photo session.  Weekdays are best, limited Saturday slots are available.  If you’re in the Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin or Granite Bay area, contact me to book today!
