Engagement - Love is blooming
What an honor it was to get to know these two sweet souls. They were fun, loving, and just a joy to photograph. I know I keep saying I feel blessed because of the people I get to work with, but I truly do feel that way. And I need you count my blessings because I am humbled by them daily. Thank you to this beautiful couple for making our time together fun. May love be a center stone of your relationship and may it continue to grow. I can't wait till your wedding next summer! Congratulations!!!
Sweet Baby L - 8 weeks - 2016
I was so excited to hear from this sweet family again. I have photographed their babies 3 times now and its so fun to see their family grow. This baby girl is such a sweetie, she made some of the cutest faces while we had our session. Thank you to the Grow family for opening your home to me and allowing me to capture these precious moments of your little one! Congratulations!
Makenna &Kurt's Engagement Session
I'm not doing to many weddings anymore by choice, but I'm very excited to be taking photos for these two. They were such a joy and we had so much fun while doing their engagement session. It's a funny story for me because I have know The Groom's family since we moved to California over 10 years ago and then we met The Wife and her family when we moved 30 miles away but still in California. Needless to say, I'm so excited to see them getting married and bringing these two wonderful families together.
Congratulations Makenna and Kurt on your engagement!
A few Examples of MiniSessions 2014
I'm so excited for my 2014 Christmas Mini Sessions this year. The location is great and it has so many different options within a little area! To help you be prepared I've taken a few examples of what will be available for you to choose. I will have the rocking horse, crates, chairs, and a few other items to be used if you'd like. Because of the range in the time of day that the Mini Sessions will be taking place, not all spots will have the right lighting, but we will do our best to make sure you get what you'd like!
I hope you enjoy these and find something you just have to have!
October 30th, 2014
I am so excited to have been able to spend the day with these two amazing people. And I mean the whole day. It was such a blessing to arrive in Oakland early on their wedding day as it was pouring rain. Just as the bride showed up it stopped raining...secretively I was hoping for some cute umbrella shots,
but I'm glad it stopped so her hair and makeup wouldn't get messed up. Just after their sealing, the sun
came out and left us with the most amazing clouds. Then through out the day
it was just perfect. I'm so thankful that I was able to take part in capturing their special moments.
I hope that they will treasure these photos for their lifetimes. Congratulations Vivanna and Chris,
may love be always with you, and an open soft heart to each other.
I have really been enjoying Newborn Sessions! Especially when the families are as sweet as this one. Only mom came up but it was so fun to get to know her more and to enjoy her sweet little baby. He was such a sweet little boy. I have to say thank you for bringing him up to spend some time with me.
Vivianna & Chris Engagements
There is something about Engagement sessions that is just so fun. I love seeing the love bloom between two people. I love capturing those silly moments that they have. Congrautlations Vivianna and Chis on your engagement. I can't wait till your wedding.
I'm so excited that this little peanut came up to visit me. Her family is so incredibly sweet. I've been able to take their last little one's pictures about 2 years ago and he was a blessing and now she truly has been sent to be an Angel on earth. I love to learn about the families that I photograph and learn about their stories. This one truly is a great blessing! Thank you to The Paula Family for having me capture your perfect little girl. She was absolutely amazing. I hope these are everything you hoped for.
