Folsom Family Photos

What a fun time I had with this family, capturing images of them on the plot of land that is the site of their future home in Folsom!


I can just imagine them playing in the back yard…


Such a beautiful setting for many family moments yet to come…


What a great memory to capture in time — something they can hold up for comparison when their property is fully realized.


We had a wonderful time out here, at the start of what I’m sure will be a lifetime of memories.


I’m so glad I got to play a part in this family’s special milestone. If you would like to document your family’s special moments with a photo session, give us a call at 916.933.8352 or email us at

Fall Family Photos at the Folsom Powerhouse

The Folsom Powerhouse is a great spot for fall family photos and I’ve been looking forward to sharing this session with you! Over the last year, this family has grown very near and dear to my heart, plus they are always up for an adventure, so this was the perfect spot for them.


The old stone work makes such a great backdrop.


That brick archway!


I just love C’s little pink dress, and her perpetual happy smile!

Beautiful Afternoon Portraits at the Davis Arboretum

So many of my clients have graduated from UC Davis, so it means a lot to them when we can capture beautiful portraits at the Davis Arboretum. No matter the season, it always looks beautiful with its varied gardens and picturesque bridges. Afternoon is a particularly pretty time to shoot there with the sun streaming through the trees and creating that soft, glowing look that flatters everyone.

Playing with bubbles is an all-time favorite!

I’ll never leave a shoot without doing cuddles with mommy.

What a fun family! They were up for anything (including piggy-back rides).

Fun Family Portraits in the Fall

It’s time for fun fall family portraits! In just a matter of a few weeks, Sacramento will be full of beautiful autumnal color!

And who better to show it off than this beautiful family. Their twin sons were just a ton of fun and so good for their pictures!

Getting four kids together for a picture isn’t always a walk in the park, but these guys make it look easy.

Lots of hugs for brothers and sisters. Such a bunch of cuties in their perfect fall outfits.

These parents are superstars in my book. What a beautiful family they have created!

And because every little boy likes being thrown in the air…

And every mom loves cuddly hugs from her boys.

Fall Family Photos in McKinley Park

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family many times over the years, and I just had to share this session taken in McKinley Park in Sacramento, where I got to meet little Leo. The fall colors of the trees make such a beautiful backdrop…
