Sacramento sessions

Before doing these sessions, both moms had e-mailed me with questions like,

"What happens if my children meltdown and don't cooperate?"
"How do you handle a husband who HATES having his picture taken?"
"How much direction will you give us?"

My answers to all....DON'T WORRY!
I am always amazed with the images captured in less than perfect situations.  Even when there are hiccups in family sessions, somehow we still manage to get pictures that tell the story of each family.

I love these and hope you do too!

Sacramento here I come....

...right back where I started from!

I love Sacramento. I miss it. And everytime we visit, it still feels like home.

We are coming back for a summer visit in August. I would love to do some photo shoots while there.

The Details:

The evenings of August 11th-13th (maybe 14th or 15th too)

I still need to scope out some final locations.
I will be looking for something URBAN and something NATURAL. Guaranteed to be cool!
I am thinking beautiful fields and cool old towns (roseville, auburn?)

How Much?
$150 for the session.
This includes the editing of 20-30 images in a gallery for your viewing pleasure.

3 - 5x7's OR 2 - sets of (8) wallets
2 - 8x10's
a hug from me.

all in the family.

Field of Dreams

I've seen this field many times, and always thought to myself, "I bet that would be a pretty place to take pictures." But when we drove up and actually got out of the car, it had many things to offer that were a surprise to me. Like green, flowy grains, golden fields, a rad tire swing, and some neat old fence posts. There is still much, much more to be explored there. My poor sister-in-law was literally swelling and snotting before our eyes - the allergies were ATROCIOUS!


I've been wanting to take the pictures involving ballooons, colorful suckers and funky clothing combinations ever since I joined Flickr and saw that that seemed to be all the rage in the photography world.

We had a good time dressing our kids. It was hard for me to stray from the plain colored tee shirt/onesie and saggy diaper look, but Mindy was a great partner in crime! I love how these turned out!
