This gorgeous mama to be is expecting her third baby any day now.  I’m hoping she has him a little early so I can be here to photograph the birth (I have a couple of travel plans coming up right around her due date).  We had a good time doing a short little session in their master bedroom at home the other day.  They are just so sweet and I wish I had images like these of my family when I was expecting our third.  Such a treasure.  I am always so excited to capture moments like these for my friends + clients.  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.  As always, thanks for being here!  XOXOXOX

I had so much fun photographing this sweet family a couple of weeks ago.  When mom + I were in the planning stages of their session, she said she wanted a location that was still in bloom, maybe even with flowers, but definitely green and lush.  Buuuuuut that’s kind of hard to do in the middle of July coming off the heels of one of the biggest droughts our state has ever seen.  I suggested a couple of places that might still be green, some of them kind of far away.  One of those places was the UC Davis arboretum.  When mom wrote back and said she went to school there I lit up inside, because it’s my alma matter too!  She said if we shot there she’d also like to shoot at a building on campus called “The Death Star.”  It’s this super awesome architectural building that houses all of the social sciences on campus.  I knew EXACTLY where she was talking about and was so excited to shoot there.  So we met on campus for a little exploring of the concrete jungle… and then after a quick wardrobe and location change we drove over to the arboretum.  We had a blast and the pictures show it.  Here are a few (OK, A LOT!) of my favorites from our time together.  As always, thank you for being here.  XOXOX

I had the honor of photographing this family in their home recently (on the morning of 4th of July, actually!)  I met mom briefly at a small, last-minute photographer outing with a few friends and I a while ago.  And I knew I had to film a behind the scenes video for my upcoming workshop (more on that below) so I sent her a quick message to see if they’d be willing to model for me.  It was perfect because I had never seen their house before, and I wanted to replicate a client session as best as possible.  I was thrilled when she said YES!  So on the morning of the 4th my husband came with me and shot a TON of behind the scenes footage, while we just hung out and took pictures.  We had the best time… We arrived at the tail end of breakfast (oatmeal and a little coffee making), then the kids showed me their rooms, we played a little bit, headed outside to collect some eggs, then back inside to put baby girl down for a nap.  It was so fun!  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.

And, for more information about my workshop “Life Inside: In-Home Lifestyle Photography,” head over to Click Photo School.  Registration is open NOW, first run starts next month!

I had the honor of capturing such a special time for this family of FOUR a few weeks ago!  They welcomed their second sweet baby girl and had me over to their hospital room to capture a “fresh 48” session (which is an in-hospital newborn session within the first 48 hours of baby’s life).  When I arrived, there was such a sense of calm and peace.  Big sis was taking a little nap in mom’s bed.  The baby was being snuggled by dad by the window.  The love was palpable.  After sister woke up, we just hung out and I chatted with her about being a great big sister and how special they both were.  It was so fun.  Here are some of my favorites from our time together.  As always, thanks for being here!  XOXOX

I had an in-person mentoring session a few weeks ago, and in the afternoon I made plans to shoot an amazing family in their cute little home.  We had so much fun and the time seemed to FLY by (truly when we were done both myself and my mentee were like, “That was fast!”) but we got so much in just a little bit of time together.  This sweet family are friends of ours, and mom is a photographer herself (she bought my breakout session so I knew she would appreciate photos such as these!).  They are expecting #4 later this year and I couldn’t be more thrilled for them.  What a perfect reason to document their growing family.  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.  Thanks for being here!  XOXOX
