Vintage Portraits for the Modern Child {Eva}

How adorably cute is this little girl! I was so excited when I talked with Eva's mom about her portrait session. Eva is wearing her great great great grandmother's dress from the early 1900's! It was slightly too big for our little Eva but it still looked absolutely amazing. We ran around in fields, picked wildflowers, learned what 'pinky swear' means and introduced 'stinkin cute' into Eva's vocabulary! It couldn't have been a more perfect day!

Pet Portraits, Sacramento Pet Photography {Marley}

I can't say it enough...but I absolutely love love love dogs...or rather...animals in general but especially dogs. My friend Morgan has been blessed with Marley - her black labrador companion and decided to photograph her 4-legged friend as her father's day gift to her dad. Marley is an older gal...but still pretty fierce when it comes to catching her ball. That was all she wanted to focus on and that was fine with us. Here are a few of my favorites from the Morgan and Marley's session...enjoy!

Sacramento Child Photography, Modern Kids Portraits {Adam + Maddi}

Here's a little sneak peak of a recent studio session with Adam and Maddi! Little Adam is going to make a great big brother and Little Miss Maddi has such an old soul for such a little baby. They both are so stinkin cute and I had a great time with the entire family.

Journey + Walk-n-Rock = Good times for a Good Cause

Wow...tonight was a bit of a whirlwind! I was asked to shoot the VIP images for the Journey concert for the Hope Production's Walk-n-Rock event at Raley Field tonight. I'll be honest...I didn't really know much about the band so I had to read their Bios on their website to brush up before the big day. The flood of generous donors who came to be photographed with the band was overwhelming. So many people in and out and all clamoring for the coveted shot with the band. All the while...the band stood strong...weathering the frenzy of people swirling about. After the shoot I was able to make my way down to the front of the stage for a few songs and shots. I wish I had a press pass for everything in life! I just breezed up to the stage with no problems...and got some amazing shots for nostalgia. So for all you Journey fans...these images are dedicated to you. Enjoy!

United Way - Live United Campaign Shoot

So last Monday I had the pleasure of hanging out with some really cool people who do really cool things for our community. The Sacramento chapter of United Way is getting ready to launch their Live United campaign and they needed some shots to get them started on the right path. It was a mighty long day...but I enjoyed every minute of it. And it helped that Gabrielle was hustling her AMAZING chocolate chip cookies to all that came down to the shoot...seriously...AMAZING COOKIES!!! Watch out Mrs. Fields! If you don't know what United Way is all about...please take a few minutes to explore their website...or better yet...donate some time to a worthy cause. I pulled out a few shots of a few cuties and some familiar faces....Enjoy!

Sacramento Fashionable Senior Portraits {Kate}

So mom drove the getaway car on this awesome Senior Urban Session...GO MOM!!! I sat shot gun giving her directions to all my favorite little places around town. We managed to crash a Girl Scout party, were approached by a helpful soul who thought we were broken down and got little Emma into a fierce frenzy at the park...not bad for a days shoot! Miss Kate is a fabulous 2009 Whitney High senior with grand theatrical plans in her future! With such an artistic and creative soul herself...we had fun running around capturing senior portraits unlike any other. Here are a few of my favorites from the day...Enjoy!

Sacramento Wedding Photography, Engagement Session {Erika + Ryan}

i HEART my wedding clients!!!! They give me so much latitude to play and really create images that stand out and satisfy my creative soul...yet still speak the truth of their love. Erika and Ryan were fabulous and we played all day long for their engagement session. They warmed up in front of the camera first at McKinley Park...then we stopped for a quick bite of Persian food (yum!)...headed up the hill...more stinkin cute photos here and there and then made our way back down the hill and ended our night by celebrating with chocolate shakes and fries at In and Out! Here's a sneak peek of just a few of the many many great photos from Sunday...more on the way!

Sacramento Professional Business Headshots, Sacramento Photographer

yes..i know...I've been a very bad many things happening in life that sometimes something has to give...and this time it was the blog. But I'm back and ready to share some awesome work and announcements with you all again! Here's one for starters...
I had the great fortune of meeting the lovely Noelle Favour last week. After talking with her...we discovered how many people we knew in common but yet we had just met. Noelle is getting ready to do some advertising for her esthetics business and was in need of some new headshots that were different than the rest...I think we nailed it! Here is a quick peek at one of the many great faces of Noelle Favour! You can find her at Lush Salon in downtown Sac for your skincare and makeup needs.

Sacramento Child Photography, Modern Kids Portraits {Audrey}

I don't even know where to begin to describe how adorable little Miss Audrey is. We dressed her up, dressed her down, stood on kitchen tables singing, played in the park and took chocolate milk breaks...what more could a girl ask for in a day! Oh little Miss are a beautiful bundle of songs and sweetness...

Band Promo Shoot...Bluegrass style!

My uber-talented boyfriend Brian (far left) needed a new band promo shot for his Bluegrass Band he's in. I'm not even sure what they call themselves...but I know they're good! He's in so many different musical projects plus he it's hard to keep up with him. Lately he's been giving private lessons to my little brother and sister (Gabe and Bella)...right now they are working on Back in Black by AC/'s so cute to hear them struggling along with the chords. Every week they get a little bit better and the song becomes more recognizable! If anyone's looking for guitar lessons...let me know!

Here is one of my favorites from the shoot...Decklin and Ava are the cutest 3 year old twins I've come across! I don't know how these 2 could get any cuter!

Carmen Salazar Seniors - 2009 {Katrina}

Beautiful...Beautiful...Beautiful!!! I was so excited about this session and how wonderful Katrina did. She has such a cute style and sense about her...which came through in her images so well. She walked into the studio with piles of clothes and we crafted some pretty cute stuff out of it all. Thank you were so much fun to photograph!
