Darling little Stella was in the studio today… here is a sneak peek for her parents!  Toward the end of our session her brother and sister came in for some sibling shots.. I can’t wait to share them!  So adorable.

Ok… are you ready for this cuteness?! Mom and Dad both grew up in Davis – bicycle central. Perfect prop that I had on hand. Loved working with sleepy little Emma today! Sneak peek for now, more coming soon!

I have been in the studio for a little over a year, and it has been such a great move for my business. After having done only in-home sessions for years, it was time to go brick and mortar. It was a huge and scary leap, but I am SO happy to have a space of my own to welcome my clients to. And it has really paid off. I have been doing some much needed moving and re-organizing over the last week, and I’m still not done. Thanks to my hubby for building my new racks to hold all of the props that I’ve been collecting. It was getting a little crowded, and it was time to go “up” with the storage. Hubby is also helping me create a second light wood backdrop… which I hope to have up by mid-May. Love my little space for maternity and newborns. I hope you’ll come and visit me soon!!

This sweet little guy was in the studio last month.  His parents had the nick name “Bear” for him before he arrived, so we incorporated some sweet little bear props!  Congratulations to the new family of three!

OpLove 4 Month Session

April 21, 2014

I am a part of a really great organization called OpLove.  From their website – [OpLove’s] “mission is to boost the morale of our deployed service members through photography. The organization helps those long months go by a little faster by capturing the moments that you will long remember and always treasure. It’s art. It’s love. It’s all made possible by artists wanting to give something back to those who make our country what it is, and ask for nothing in return but for these brave men and women to come back home.”

This little guy’s daddy is deployed, and he will have the gift of some of these beautiful images shipped to him.  Thanks for coming out for the session!

If you’re looking for an OpLove photographer – please look me up on their website.  I take limited OpLove sessions each month on a first come, first serve basis.  You’ll find me under Lovely You Photography (my other website).

We had a great time during out outdoor maternity session in Fair Oaks.  The couple brought their sweet german shepherd to be included in some of the pictures, which I loved!  Beautiful images, beautiful couple!  Can’t wait to meet their little girl soon!

This couple chose a combination studio and outdoor session for their maternity portraits.  In the studio, we focused on mom in the wraps that I provide.  And for the outdoor portion, we focused on the couple together.  We did bring one wrap outside for some beautiful shots in the meadow.  Loved their session, and can’t wait to meet their little guy!  (Mom’s makeup and hair by Shana Beals).

I loved working with this beautiful couple.  They are expecting their third baby in May, and I cannot wait to meet their newest arrival!  They chose a combination studio/outdoor session, where we spent time focusing on just mom, and then the couple in the outdoor shots.  She looked fabulous – I just love a glowing mama!

I have more to share of this beautiful mom-to-be… she and her husband chose to do one of my combo maternity sessions, including some time in the studio, and outdoors.  Can’t wait to share the rest, but here is a gorgeous sneak peek of her in my coral wrap, in the studio!
