  • Welcome!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. This is a place where you will be able to find my latest photography work and client sneak peeks. I absolutely love the art of photography and consider it a blessing to have the opportunity to photograph so many wonderful people.

    Please note: I am currently booking a very limited number of sessions each month and sessions often book out months in advance.

October Minis 2014


The October minis went great this year!!! Our location was a hit as all the kids loved climbing on the big boulders and they provided for great shots with light-filled trees and yellow-green leaves. Victoria and Vanessa were up first – they always come with big smiles and silly sister giggles:

Mark and Janice they did great! So many more cute pictures of them!!!


The next family is too cute!! Mike, Lindsay, Luke, Grant and Claire – I always love photographing them:

Addison and Emmaline are seriously adorable and I am in love with Emme’s sweet smiles in her photos:

Matt and Rebekah – thanks for squeezing in at the last minute!!! So glad we could get some great photos of you guys. Tons more cute ones coming!!


Andy and Laura had their session last year on a day that was so cold it was actually supposed to know in Sacramento and maybe even did a little. This year the weather was much more agreeable and I was so happy to see Tyler and Dylan again – seriously the sweetest kids. Dylan was cracking me up the whole session and Laura – I have the funniest photo of him that will crack you up – I might even put it up on my wall I love it so much – his many expressions were so adorable!!!

Ryan, Jen and Zach were new friends. Zach is just about the coolest kid around! And those curls…oh my! Jen – thanks for coming out – it was great meeting you all!!!

Only about 15 more mini sessions to go for this year – The November minis are packed with tons more great families!!! I love this time of year. Thanks all!!!



This year I am loving bright colors and even untraditional fall colors like golden yellow, salmon red and sage green. This family’s outfits fit perfect with my favorite location, which always delivers great light and beautiful, colorful backgrounds. I love this family, these kids and everything about these pictures!! Eli and Naomi were rockstars at their photo session this year – such great listeners and so much fun to take pictures of!

You walk. I’ll skate.

I’m pretty sure these are my favorite photos I’ve taken of the Smith family yet. The last couple years, Holly has been choosing a fun, unique look for their sessions and pushing me out of my comfort zone just a little, to capture something different than my normal style. I love how these turned out and wish I had more fun, styled sessions like this one. Thanks so much Holly and Jesse for bringing the family out again for photos. Hope you like them as much as I do!


Jena had so many fun ideas for her senior portraits! She loves photography and music and horses.  She has been planning and waiting for these portraits and was so excited for her big day. She looked so gorgeous and I loved all her ideas and outfits she brought. It was really fun getting the chance to capture her personality and her many interests and talents!

Jena – I hope you like your sneak peek. I don;t know how you’ll ever choose – there are so many more great ones to come in your gallery!!!:)
