Sacramento Parent Magazine | August 2015

I’m super honored and excited to have my images displayed for the cover and feature story of the August issue of Sacramento Parent! It was a blast to work with Cassandra and her family at the fire station where her husband works. I have to say, it’s pretty fun being a photographer and having a big, red, shiny firetruck as your main prop (not to mention the four gorgeous people in front of me)! Cassandra and her family are super inspiring! You can read the full article below or hop on over to the Sacramento Parent Magazine website.

Sacramento Parent Magazine | March 2015

When the designer for Sacramento Parent Magazine contacted me to do a shoot at the Sacramento Zoo with a GIRAFFE in it, how could I refuse??? Here’s a fun little peek at this month’s cover (photographed by yours truly), as well as a few additional images for the feature article.

2015 Source Book | Published

Hello, All! I’m excited today because I just got my copy of the Sacramento Source Book for 2015 and guess whose picture is on the cover??? I just adore everything about this family and couldn’t be happier that they were chosen for the magazine. That’s what they get for showing up to their session with me in such darn cute outfits…

Sacramento Parent Magazine | April + May 2013

A friend of mine was joking with me that I should become the staff photographer at Sacramento Parent Magazine because, with the addition of the covers for April and May, I have published eight covers with them (as well as a feature story and an interview). For me, I’m just so honored to have the opportunity and I love to see my beautiful customers gracing the pages of one of Sacramento’s favorite parenting magazines. It gives me little butterflies to walk into my local ice cream shop and see my images on the rack.

Here are my latest covers for April and May. Did you see them around town?

April 2013 (cover, contents and feature):

This Folsom family was so fun to photograph! Do you remember their family portrait session from last year? After the magazine was published, they scooped up as many issues as they could get their hands on and brought them with them to Korea to share with their friends and family overseas – how fun!

May 2013 (cover, contents and article):

Vinita is the beautiful person you see below and she was just glowing for her maternity session in Folsom. My favorite part of their session was including their darling Boston Terrier in the pictures (you know I’m a sucker for those Bostons). I’m so glad they captured this moment in their lives — only to have it enjoyed by thousands of other people — who would’ve known?? Ha!

And another client, Katie, is pictured in the image above (to the right). We found the perfect river spot for her maternity session and caught the light just right. It’s so fun to see these images go from the blog to being published in a magazine!

A Busy Year

Okay…get ready for a some obnoxious horn tootin’ because I’m a little bit proud of myself…If any of you were wondering why I was a little absent from the blog last year, it was because this little business o’ mine grew more last year than any other year. Want some proof? I was published a total of eight times in 2012 which is an all-time high for me. I’m so honored that my work was chosen to be featured in these awesome publications. And a big THANK YOU to the families who participated! You can see these plus earlier published works on my website’s “press” page.
