Romeo's 1st Birthday

BE STILL MY HEART!! I have a very special Valentine's Day post for everyone today! hehe How super adorable is little Romeo, a Havanese?! His mama Rachael came out to our Santa Pawtrait party back in December and then reached out to me about doing some photos for his birthday, which was on the 12th. So we did a super cute Valentine's Day themed photo session. He was super eager to please, but also REALLY excited about having a new person over. I told his mama that he was going to zonk out after I left. (She later confirmed that he did sleep really well after I left :P) Check out some of my favorite shots from his session! His cake is from http://www.pawsandthepalette.com/ locted and 24th & J

A Winter Weekend Morning with Ashley & Rainier

Okay... I'm gonna get real here for a moment. This session has, by far, been one of my all time favorites. And it's set a new bar for how I'd really like to see my in-home sessions going in the future. No joke. A few months before we did their session, I had come across a photo on Ashley's IG of her living room. As you can see from these shots, It's beautiful, eclectic, filled with gorgeous natural light. I reached out to Ashley about doing an in-home session for them and we planned a few activities for her and her son Rainier to do. Ashley had mentioned these cute Rae Dunn mugs she had seen at Marshall's and how perfect they'd be for her and Rainier. So we picked up the cutest pair: Big and

Holiday Inspo with Liz Franco

See what I did there with the title?! hehe Liz and I have worked together a few times over the last year and a half with her pregnancy and the birth of her son, Walker. But before that, we had collaborated a few times while she was running her Srsly Liz blog. You may remember me mentioning her in my Introductions and Storytelling post. Our friend Rachel did makeup for one of them and she's recently gotten back into the makeup biz after taking a number of years off to raise her two young boys who are getting a little older now. Needless to say, we were more than excited to meet up and work together again when Rachel pinged us about it. We started of the sesh at DOCO followed by a visit to the

Brittany - Winter In-home Session

I've been working in collaboration with Brittany for a few months now. Shes a Lifestyle Coach who is a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Postnatal Fitness Specialist, and a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach. She has a passion for movement, self-love, mindful living, and real food. She and I have been meeting up for photo sessions to help create engaging photos for her content. This last time, we met up on a stormy day at their beautiful home in East Sacramento. Thankfully the clouds cleared for a bit so that we could actually get some gorgeous natural light. Here were some of my favs. Be sure to check out her site for info on the programs she runs: https://www.brittanyalexaburns.com/. #LocalB

A breezy fall day with the Hiraharas

I kicked off my 2018 Fall Minis with the Hiraharas on a suuuuper breezy fall day. But man, I LOVED the wind and it created some beautiful movement in Angelina's dress. We didn't quite do these at golden hour, but I'm still really diggin' the light and sun flares that I caught. It was a special session too. Because Angelina and Ryan announced the Pennelope will become a big sister this spring! Eek! #FamilyPhotos #FallMinis #MiniSessions #Fall #WilliamLandPark

The Saechao Family

How super cute are all of these faces?! I Met Wernnie and Kendra playing volleyball at the Rec Center here in West Sacramento. And guess how they met? Playing volleyball!! Seriously, how freakin' adorable is that?! They had their little one Elliott a few years later (he just turned two btw) and I had the pleasure of doing some photo work for them last fall. Also, Kendra is a super badass event planner and she's helping me with our upcoming post-elopement party! She's the best. If you're in need of an event coordinator, she's your gal. You can find her at https://acousticevents.net/! #FamilyPhotos #Natomas #GoldenHour #FallMinis #LocalBusinesses #Families #MiniSessions

Meet the Walkers

The Walker family was a referral from another client of mine, Maria! Guys, I'm not joking when I say that referrals are THEE main source of my bookings for sessions. I don't pay for advertising because I don't really need too. Plus, I want more clients who are just like my existing clients. And with my $50 referral discount (for the new client) and a $25 off Thank You (for the existing client), it's a WIN-WIN-WIN! See what I did there, eh?! hehe Anyway, we did this session at golden hour and I'm diggin' all the beautiful back-lighting that I got. #GoldenHour #Fall #FullSession #FamilyPhotos #Teenagers #Natomas #Referrals
