I promised more images of this beautiful family.  So fun to have worked with them from engagement session to wedding, to baby number two!

Its that time of year… when parents start doing the shopping for pencils and folders and cute clothes.  Summer vacations are winding down.  My kids go back in just two short weeks!  I can’t believe how fast the summer has flown by.  Mine are going into 4th and 5th Grade, and I cannot believe how fast its all gone.

I have not offered a “Back to School” mini theme before, but I was very inspired this year and decided to go for it.  I have styled the set myself, which includes an adorable vintage school desk, a globe, map pinwheels and other cute school related items.  I just need your adorable kids to join me!  I’ll be shooting during the evening golden hour on two dates (see below).  I will be offering some great packages if you decide to order beyond what is included with the mini session.

Darling little Olivia came back to me for a Milestone session for her first birthday!  Its so fun to see my newborns grow from itty bitty to one year old with a sweet personality!  Such a joy!

I really have a hard time deciding if I love outdoor maternity sessions, or studio maternity sessions.  I cannot make up my mind because I love them both so much!  This image below though, makes me love outdoor maternity sessions because of the drama!  This can only happen just as the sun hits the horizon, and if there are dramatic clouds in the sky.  I am in LOVE with silhouettes.  I’ll share more of this beautiful family soon.  I’m so excited because this is a couple whose wedding I shot four years ago!  They are expecting baby number two, and I cannot wait to capture their portraits.

Sweet little Marco did SUCH a great job for his photography debut.  What a little darling.  I loved seeing his parents again after their maternity session a few months back.

Lupines in Lake Tahoe

July 14, 2015

A little personal post… my family spends a lot of time at Lake Tahoe in the Sierras.  This is one of my favorite peaceful places in the world.  We’ve enjoyed some time there this summer exploring.  My sister-in-law stumbled on this gorgeous field of lupine flowers, and I could not resist taking some casual photos.
