My youngest turned 4 today.  All of a sudden she doesn't seem so little anymore.  This girl has so much personality and makes us smile all day long.  I took her out to get some pics-- and within 10 minutes I captured about a hundred different faces.  LOL!  Happy birthday Audrielle, our little ray of sunshine.  <3

The Grays

It's been crazy over here so I haven't had time to blog.  I've done two dozen shoots over the last two months, and still have a dozen more to do before the end of this month.  Fall is crazy ya'll!  But I figured I should try to post at least one session just so people don't think I've disappeared completely.  LOL!  Loved this session-- the people, the outfits, the setting, the light, the colors!  All of it!  Enjoy!

The Ruggles

I've been photographing the Ruggles for a while now and this is the first time I was able to have all three boys available for the shoot-- so happy it worked out!

The Wiemers

This might just be one of my most favorite sessions ever!  Beautiful family, tons of personality, awesome location, and just a cool vibe for the shoot!  Love this family-- I've been photographing them since Hadley was a baby, and I've known Melissa for like a decade now (and she is a ton of fun to go wine tasting/antiquing with!  Speaking of which... which need to plan a date soon Melissa!

The Durkee & Linares Families

I love getting to see families again and again and again.  It's amazing how fast babies and little kids grow and change!  I've photographed 3 of the 4 of these babes as newborns.  Thank you Chanel and Leanne for allowing me to capture your beautiful families every year!

The Ross Family

When my friends asked me to come up to Tahoe to photograph their family at their vacation home I couldn't resist!  Who can say "no" to Lake Tahoe?!  Thanks again for having me come up!  And thanks again to my friend Christina for going up there with me!  It was a nice break from reality!  :)

The Rubens Family

The Rubens family met me out at the lake to get some photos done before their oldest goes off to school/the military.  I don't photograph families with "big kids" too often, but I should definitely do it more-- it was far easier than chasing tiny children around!  LOL!

The Clarks

The Clarks are such a sweet family!  And little Anthony was such a ham-- he asked if he could make some very specific faces for his pictures and of course I said yes!  :)

The Brights

The Brights are the sweetest family with the most darling daughter. Marisa wasn't super smiley for me, but she was happy and content so I feel like that's still a win!  :)

Lauren & Jocelyn

I've been photographing Jocelyn and her mommy Lauren since Jocelyn was only a couple months old.  There is something very special about getting to see little people grow up-- I love seeing their personalities develop.  Thank you Lauren for allowing me to photograph your little one-- she's adorable!


My Cousin Carole and Her Babes

My amazing cousin Carole is a fellow photographer and, just like most photographers, lacks photos of herself with her kiddos.  I was so happy to be able to take these photos for her in a gorgeous blossoming almond orchard.  Her children are beautiful and were so much fun to photograph.  And I still can't get over how beautiful the orchard was... it looked like it had snowed with all the dropped petals.  Breathtaking.  Thank you Carole for letting me snap a couple pics of you and your babes.
