Sarah and David’s family stepped out of the car looking absolutely perfect for their family portraits. For most of the year, light neutrals and pastel colors are my favorite colors for wardrobe; but jewel tones for fall were perfection for Sarah and David’s family. Their wardrobe complemented the natural environment at Upper Bidwell Park, and […]

Lauren and Greg’s session was one of my absolute favorites! Just a few hours before their session was to begin, Lauren messaged me and shared some props that she was hoping to incorporate into their session. My adrenaline raced, goosebumps appeared on my arms, and I squealed with joy. Their fall family session was turning […]

I was happy to recently photograph their fall family portraits and to celebrate their son’s first birthday. Since their newborn session, they have recently purchased a home. Fun fact: Holly and I were […]

When we first started to discuss locations, Madeline asked me if I knew of this specific location with a log in Lower Bidwell Park.  I sent her a location that I love and thought this could be where she was thinking of. It was the exact location!  We made sure to use this same location […]

When we scheduled Kim and Tim’s fall family session, Kim knew that she wanted it at the Butte Creek Country Club.  What they did not know was that Tim was going to be having emergency surgery just a few days prior to their family session date. I was anticipating taking pictures of only Kim and […]

Jane and Andy’s family was as handsome as could be!  Their holiday attire and children’s toothless grins screamed the holidays and Christmastime! We used to see Jane and Andy’s family frequently on the baseball field, basketball court, and on the campus of the kids’ school. Now we rarely bump into each other due to the […]

What a difference a year can make! I was fortunate to photograph Tory and Billy‘s family fall portrait session last year and when I saw everyone this year, I could not believe how much their two sons had grown! I learned that their older son is into his style and loved his jacket. Their younger […]
