Family Portraits with an Autistic Child

A few times a year, a parent will call in to ask if I am comfortable photographing their family along with their son or daughter who has autism and I tell them, “Yes!” I’ve been very fortunate to have photographed a number of families with autistic children, and one child in particular has made quite a name for himself here in Sacramento. I wanted to take a moment to feature him and allow you all to follow his story.

Meet Jack. At the time this picture was taken (August 2012), he was just beginning a new relationship with Biscuit, his very own adopted service dog.

Quoting a 2012 article from Dandelion Magazine: “Jack calls Biscuit his ‘posse,’ explaining, ‘Biscuit has my back at school.’ The duo are inseparable. ‘Biscuit knows Jack is his boy,’ [Jack's mom] says.”

Photo-Ready Outfits in Old Sacramento

When I pulled up to the meeting spot, I knew this was the family I was looking for because they were looking amazing in their awesome photo-ready outfits. They did such a great job at “coordinating without matching” which I’m always encouraging my customers to do. They picked a blue, yellow, white and gray color scheme which had just the right amount of pop for their Old Sacramento family photography session.

Here are the three brothers showing off their awesome posing skills — they did this on their own — how cool are they???

family portraits hiking in the mountains

I’ve been photographing this family for a number of years now and when they said they’d be okay with taking family portraits hiking in the mountains, I got so excited for the shoot. It was a perfect spot for them since they are very athletic people anyhow, and they live right by one of my favorite places to go for a summer swim.

So, I’m a sucker when it comes to chunky, breast-fed babies and this little guy – oh my goodness. He is just too cute! Click HERE see how amazingly adorable he is!

sacramento spring portraits at the capitol

It was a perfect day in Sacramento for spring portraits at the Capitol. There is one cherry tree there with the most amazing blossoms that only blooms for about two weeks out of the year and we caught it in its prime. I love this shot — it’s like “Super Baby!” haha

Three Generations of Girls | Midtown Sacramento Portraits

Last year, right on the day of my very own birthday, a special little girl was born and she was named Sage. We took her newborn pictures when she was only five days old and then Mom brought her back for her ten month pictures. On that day, I got to capture three generations of girls: Baby Sage, Mom and Grandma.
