Just one more share at the location where I will be holding my March cherry blossom mini session.  I took my daughter out today for some fun.  I also just added a beautiful bright blue umbrella to my collection.  I love this time of year!

I am so happy that Spring is getting so close.  The cherry blossom trees seem to think that it is here already and that is fine by me because I love taking photos with all of the green grass and blossoms!  Book soon, as I will just be doing a single day of mini sessions.

I have been loving all of the gorgeous warm weather lately.  I cannot believe that all of the trees are in bloom right now, and I keep saying that I need to stop and shoot with my own children and the cherry blossoms!  Today we were driving by this beautiful spot, and I decided to take some photos.

Just a quick sneak peek for the parents of beautiful little Olivia.  She was a little sport, and although she wouldn’t let us pose her any way we wanted to… we still got some beautiful images of her!  I can’t wait to share more, but here are a few.  :)

I have been working with a ton of baby girls lately – which I absolutely love.  I finally had a little BOY this week to work with!  He was so cute and perfect!  Mom and dad were unsure of how things would go because he was fussy just before I arrived.  Rest assured weary moms and dads, I come bearing a little white noise.  He was passed out for most of the shoot.  We were able to get some great sleeping shots, which he fully cooperated for.  I had a great time, and as I always say, I absolutely love my job.  Its great, meeting new parents who are so excited about the new little people in their lives, and great getting that “baby fix” with all of these cute little bundles.  Mom and dad, here is your “sneak peek”!

I am so very pleased and excited to have joined a new organization that I personally think, is amazing and inspiring.  I found a website called “The Littlest Heroes” about six months ago.  It was started by a 19 year old photographer (you can see her website and work here) in Illinois.  I am searching for her original story on why she started this organization, but from what I recall, she had a childhood illness, and she wanted to give back to those like her.  She is a truly selfless person, and I am inspired by such a giving young person.

From their website: ”

Inspirations Through Art is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young people to give back, and make a difference through the beauty of art. We are artists with a passion for giving and inspiring others. Through our own artistic talents we are able to come together as one, to let children around the world know that they are loved, despite the challenges they face everyday.

Inspiration Through Art was founded in January 2008 by Felicia Reinhard, made up of professional photographers, artists, children, and other volunteers nationwide that provide free programs and services to our nations heroes. Through the power of photography and the gift of art we are giving back and taking a stand for these children who sometimes feel forgotten because of their illnesses. We are here to let them know that they are heroes to many, and to share their inspirational stories and photos with the world.

If you have a child, or know a child, who suffers from any type of serious illness or life altering disability we are here to help. Inspiration Through Art provides our special heroes with complimentary photo shoots, special cards and mail, gift packages, and various other programs, events, and fundraisers.

I will be one of the Sacramento area photographers for this program, and I am so excited to work with my first “little hero”.   Please spread the word by sharing these links with friends and family!
