Rhonda and Jeff met me in Chico for their fall family portraits.  I had met Rhonda years ago when my babies were truly babies. Our paths reconnected after the Camp Fire when Rhonda and Jeff moved into a relative’s home.  I am so glad that we reconnected, because I would have missed out on their […]

Mandy and AJ met me for at their fall family portraits in Chico.  The colors of fall were just starting to appear.  I started out by getting the settings correct in my camera by taking some test shots on Mandy and AJ’s son.  Their son brings a smile to my face by just thinking of […]

Deidre and Jake recently welcomed their sweet baby girl into their lives.  They were so kind to invite me into their home. (Which looks like it could be something out of the Pottery Barn catalog!).  At the time of their in-home newborn lifestyle session, their sweet baby girl was only one week old.  She may […]
