David is a senior at Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom. I met him two years ago when I took his brother Matthew’s senior portraits and I was so happy to see his family again. I LOVE taking senior portraits and especially when the seniors are cool and fun to be around like David and Matthew. Kathy – thanks so much for the opportunity to photograph your boys. I just adore your family and you have such great guys in your life. Best wishes to David in your bright future ahead!!!

Maddie is a senior at Woodcreek High School and also my son’s Sunday School teacher. When he saw me editing these photos he was so excited – he said that’s Miss Maddie!!!

I loved wandering around with Maddie and her Mom finding so many beautiful backgrounds including the coolest, most beautiful wall of ivy. Patti and Maddie – thanks so much for the opportunity to capture your senior portraits! You are so beautiful Miss Maddie!!!!



My last set of mini sessions for the year was filled with sunshine and beautiful families. I’m so happy we made it through this whole season without any of the mini sessions getting rained out!!! First up on Sunday was this extended family who has grown by two members since the last time I photographed them all together.

Chuck and Mary Gail buy lots of cute pictures of their grandson Landon, so it’s fun to get them in some pictures this time!

Jason and Caprese – so cute!

The newest addition to this great family is Mr. Levi – I’m so excited to get to know him and watch Landon be a great big brother:

I am loving snuggly family pictures right now and my beautiful friend Shelley and her adorable family are seriously too cute all snuggling together in this beautiful setting!!

Ken and Shelley – always so good to see you and the kids. Shelley – seriously – I am scheduling coffee soon!!!!

Renee is a photographer as well and it’s always great to see their beautiful family at the mini sessions. They also added to their family this year with Olivia, who is already well-trained looking right at the camera!!

Abby and Chelsea always have the most adorable dresses!!!

Troy, Heidi, Shelby and Austin are new friends and were so great to photograph and I loved their outfits!

I just love Will and Stevie… Mike and Frances – so thankful you all come back every year so I can see your boys grow and capture them and their great personalities!

Thank you to all the mini session families for coming out. I am working fast and furious to get your galleries turned around so you can get those Christmas cards moving!!! I will be in touch next week. Thanks!:)Sandy
