The Blog

I got to photograph this sweet family earlier over the summer and am finally getting around to blogging it!  These three were just the sweetest EVER.  Baby boy was so content just hanging with us, exploring, and having fun.  I had the best time chatting with mom + dad, too, getting to know them.  I love it when the families I photograph feel comfortable just being themselves… these low key sessions are always some of my favorites.  Here are a few of my faves from our time together!  As always, thank you for being here!  XOXOXO

These two might look familiar if you’ve been around my blog for any amount of time… I shot their beautiful, family centered wedding a few years ago (you can read about it HERE), and now they’re expecting their first sweet little boy!  I just love watching my clients’ families grow.  So when they asked me to photograph their maternity session, of COURSE I said yes!  We had a great time catching up with each other, hanging out, and of course taking some awesome photos.  And since this little guy has now made his appearance earth-side I figured now would be as good time as any to blog their session.  😉  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together. As always, thanks for being here.  XOXOXOX

My dear friend, fellow photographer, and all around amazing lady, Monika was traveled with her family from Florida, to Colorado, then down the California coast this summer.  When she told me their journey had an extra day between San Francisco and LA my first thought was, “COME STAY HERE!” Now I know Sacramento isn’t the most travel-worthy place, but I also know that if I were on vacation with my family for 3 whole weeks straight I would want a “normal” day at home (or someone else’s home) where the kids can play with other kids and have a nice home cooked meal.  So they did just that!  They came inland for a day and hung out with us.  Of course, she wanted to shoot and meet up with other local photog friends too.  So we set up a “just for fun” session for her and headed to a new location on an awesome ridge top in Rocklin.  I LOVE exploring new places and finding the light, so even though this shoot was technically for Monika, I had a blast as well.  Here are a few of my favorites from our session, and at the bottom are some of Monika’s iPhone snaps of our fun time together (including breakfast the next day).

I’m not really sure what to say about this family!  Simply – they are amazing.  I grew up with mom’s big sister.  We were inseparable as young kids.  Until…. we moved away when I was 8.  We still tried to see each other as often as possible and we have kept in touch through all these years.  So when mom here asked me to come out for the day + photograph their growing family the answer was YES!  Not only did I get to see her, but I also got to see my dear friend!  Baby has since been born, and since I was so behind on blogging I thought I’d share these in an effort to catch up!  I can’t wait to see this family again soon.  Here are some of my favorites from our time together.  As always, thanks for being here!  XOXOX

Ya’ll!  We just moved and so I’m a little bit excited about Amazon prime day this year!  We have almost 1000 square feet more than we did just a month ago, not to mention a backyard.  So now we basically want need all of the things.  😉  Here are a few of my favorites I’m digging on Amazon right now!  Mostly house stuff, but some fun splurgy type stuff too!  Affiliate links below!

*EDITED TO ADD that the 8qt instant pot just went on super sale!  WHAT?!  Snag this now!  Available HERE!

These umbrellas are huge (11 feet!) and they articulate so you can tilt them whichever direction the sun is pointing.  We are going to snag at least two, maybe three.  One for in the pool, one for in the BBQ and one for in the dining table.  Find them HERE.

This is one of our favorite family games to play and it’s basically half off.  Run and grab it now!  HEREScreen Shot 2017-07-10 at 10.02.09 PM

Obviously this one is not house related.  But isn’t it so gorgeous!  SO CHEAP too!  And wonderful reviews!  Snag it HERE.

I got my husband something way similar to this for father’s day because he’s been doing more traveling for work.  He LOVED it on his most recent trip to DC.  The one I got him isn’t nearly as nice as this one and I paid almost twice as much.  Ha!  Get it HERE.

My friends got these items so I thought I’d share them!  Headphones HERE and Robot vacuum HERE.

This amazing 8×10 rug is LESS THAN $100!  What?!  I already ordered one for our new house otherwise I’d be all over this one!  Get it HERE!

This is our new welcome mat, and although it’s also not on special for “Prime Day” it IS on sale and everyone comments on it when they come over!  It’s the funnest (and funniest!)  Get it HERE!

Screen Shot 2017-07-10 at 10.26.08 PM

Last but not least, another one that’s not on special for “Prime Day” (but still on sale!) is my camera bag.  Hands down the best camera bag I’ve ever owned!  No muss, no fuss, no frills.  Just lots of space, padding and pockets.  That’s all I need, apparently.  I get asked about it ALL the time from people and they are always so shocked it’s a camera bag!  I use it as my purse + camera bag.  Anyway!  Treat yo’ self!  Get it HERE!
