baby miles | in-home newborn photographer

I got to photograph sweet Miles’s newborn session just a little over a week after his fresh 48 in the hospital.  It was so awesome getting to meet his big sis and just hanging with the family.  They are seriously the sweetest!  It was the perfect way to spend my morning.  I love getting my baby snuggle fix, too!  Just thought I’d share LOTS of my favorites from our time together.  As always, thanks for being here.  XOXOXO

fall mini sessions, pt 2

Well I finished editing my first day of mini sessions – see the first family from that day HERE.  Since then I’ve had two other days chock full of awesome families and I can’t wait to start editing those!  But patience is a virtue… first thing’s first.  Delivering + blogging these sessions.  So many of these families have been coming to me for years, which warms my heart.  I couldn’t ever think of not offering mini sessions because of how many awesome people I get to see every year.  Here are just a few of SO MANY images we got together.  In all, I shot five families and I love how each of them is so different and themselves.  As always, thanks for being here.  XOXOXO

Fall Mini Sessions! | Roseville Family Photographer

My first night of mini sessions started out with a bang with this adorable family!  I’m so excited to share many many more families with you in the upcoming weeks (both mini sessions and full sessions!)… Busy fall season is definitely UPON US!  This sweet family of four is just the best – I’ve known mama since my college days and she is one of my dearest friends.  I have LOVED watching her family grow.  Here are a LOT of my favorites from our very short time together.  As always, thank you for being here!  XOXOXO

lots of changes! | roseville lifestyle photographer

Well last week was a busy one!  We hired a local company to come in and paint our cabinets to help update our kitchen.  In addition to just painting them, they also moved the exposed hinges to the inside of the cabinets which concealed them.  I think that was as big of an update as the paint itself was.  It was a HUGE undertaking and I was completely overwhelmed with the amount of work that was involved.  I was very grateful we had decided to hire this particular project out.  But because I underestimated the scope of the project, I also underestimated the amount of impact it would have on our lives.  Not only did we not have access to our cabinets, but we also didn’t have access to the sink, microwave, or dishwasher!  So I couldn’t make any dirty dishes.  Couldn’t reheat any leftovers from eating out the night before.  Nothing, really.  It wasn’t a HUGE deal (it was only four days) but it was definitely more than I was expecting.  The kids rolled with it great.  My older daughter LOVES any excuse to get hot lunch at school.  😉  Here are some “before” images (I just pulled them from the MLS), as well as some “in progress” shots.  And, of course some “afters.”

And because we like to add more to our plate during times of chaos (apparently) we adopted a dog on Friday!  His name is Hank and I have nicknamed him the “gentle giant.”  I really feel he was meant to be a part of our family, and it’s fate that we wound up with him.  He is the most mellow, sweetest dog I’ve ever met.  He is respectful, walks on a leash SO well, asks to go outside, doesn’t chew or bark or jump… so far he has transitioned into our family better than I could have ever expected.  We are so lucky to have him.  And since we are talking kitchens, I just wanted to share a few of him (with my youngest) in our new kitchen.

baby miles | in-hospital newborn session

Ooooooh I got my baby fix last Thursday when I was able to photograph sweet baby Miles and his parents in the hospital.  If you follow me on Instagram and saw my stories on there, you know that this hospital session was special because it was at the same hospital I delivered all three of my babies at.  I haven’t been back there in years (pretty much all of my Fresh 48 sessions are here in Roseville) so it was a trip down memory lane for sure.  I get to do Miles’s “official” newborn session later this week and his big sis will be joining us as well!  Can’t wait to share what he looks like now… they change so much in those first few weeks!  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together in the hospital.  As always thanks for being here!  XOXOXO

PS – This entire session was edited with presets from my Oceanic Collection (the Sand + Breeze presets specifically).  Currently on sale and now they come with an editing video with all my favorite Lightroom tips and tricks!  Snag your set HERE.
