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.

Just a little share from today’s studio Mini Session.  I photographed sweet little Harlow at just a few weeks old.  She’s now almost two and came back into the studio to see me. DARLING!

Loved shooting family photos for some of our good friends at Lake Tahoe during a weekend away. You cannot go wrong in Tahoe… so much beauty! This is one of my favorite little fields with gorgeous aspen trees and a pretty field.

We spent last weekend with our good friends at their home in Lake Tahoe, and took them out to one of my favorite Lake Tahoe fields.  You can’t go wrong with a beautiful family with perfect golden light!

I’m excited to announce my 2013 Studio Mini Sessions at my studio in Fair Oaks!  I love having the studio after spending so many years working only on location.  I still love doing outdoor portraits also, but it’s nice to have an option for families with very small children, and the chilly winter months.  I am planning three “sets” for the children, all Christmas/holiday themed.  I will have lots of cute props – tutus, petti rompers, hairbows, hats and more, for your little ones to use for their session.  I am offering this to children under four only, no parents or adults.  If you want to have older siblings pop in for an image or two, that will be fine, but the sets will be created with the tiny ones in mind, ages 3 months to 4 years (up to three children).

UPDATED – I have a few additions and changes to these special Studio Mini Sessions. Please bear with me, this is a lot to read.

I was on Facebook a few days ago and in my feed, I saw a photo of a friend with a baby that looked to be in a hospital bed. I was curious, so I clicked on the post. I found a family that has moved me to get involved and help in any way that I can. Little Reagan was just released from the hospital this week. She is just eight months old, and has Spinal Muscular Atrophe (SMA Type 1). She was just diagnosed in July. From her mom on their Facebook page “The light of our life, our beautiful daughter Reagan, is now fighting for her life. SMA is a horrible genetic disease that is typically fatal before the age of two. We love our baby and refuse to let her go without a fight.”. From the moment I read it, I was so touched and really felt a need to help them in any way that I could.

Please become a fan of her page.

Click here to read her full story and to donate –

I have decided that with every Christmas Studio Mini Session that I book, $100.00 will go directly to Reagan’s family to help offset the cost of her care. She is home with her parents, and has a lot of fighting still left to do. I cannot wait to meet her and her family in the next few weeks, and share more about them with you. There are 40 spots available, and if we fill them all, we will be able to give $4000.00 to her family.  Right now, the family is in need of a vehicle large enough to handle Reagan’s specialized car seat, breathing machine, and other equipment necessary for transporting her to appointments.  I hope this will help!

Please contact me to schedule a session, and be sure to join her page!

I will also be offering full 45 minute Holiday Family Sessions on November 3rd, 4th and 5th for families who want full outdoor sessions.  The rate on these is $495.00 and they will come with a one hour shoot in Fair Oaks, and a CD of images (approximately 15 images).  $150.00 from each of these sessions will be donated to Reagan and her family.   I have 14 sessions available, so this is another $2100. that can go to her family if all of the spots are filled.
