Spring Portraits

Hooray! Spring is HERE and the flowers and green grass are just beautiful!




Spring is one of the prettiest times of year to schedule a portrait session. Everything seems to be blooming and the light is incredible, both morning and afternoon.

I had so much fun looking through photos from last year and couldn’t resist sharing some with you… so much lovely light and happiness.


I’m currently booking sessions for May and June, so if you’re thinking of scheduling something, don’t wait! And moms, if you’re pregnant and expecting in the next 2-3 months, get in touch so we can get some time on the calendar while there’s still room.


Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Fun Family Photos at the Crocker Art Museum

I couldn’t resist sharing this fun family session taken at the Crocker Art Museum in downtown Sacramento. It makes such a great setting and I was so lucky to meet up with an adorable family that was up for some silliness!


I love their mix-match plaids!


Aren’t they a great looking bunch?


SO much fun!


And now I officially want to be adopted into this family, lol!

Natural Newborn Studio Pictures

Meet Zoe. We shared some time together in my natural light studio for her family’s first portraits together. There is just something about this sweet little face that mesmerizes me.


Maybe it’s her perfect little rosebud mouth…


Or her ten tiny fingers and ten tiny toes…


Or that thick head of hair at only a few days old…


I think mom and dad agree with me…


They seem pretty mesmerized by Zoe too…



What an honor it is for me to capture these first moments. If you are looking to schedule a newborn photo session, my natural light studio is a great location. Just give us a call at 916-933-8352 or email us at

Outdoor Family Portraits in Los Angeles

I was in Los Angeles recently and had the good fortune to photograph this stunning family at Paramount Ranch. What luck to spend the afternoon at such a beautiful location, with a family full of incredibly stylish people!


I just love this sweet photo with the sunlight peeking behind the hill…


The happy grandparents!


Picture perfect family…


The handsome guy below is the proud uncle — love these smiles!


They couldn’t have done a better job picking out their clothes for this session!


I shoot in Los Angeles at regular times through the year, so if you’re interested in scheduling a shoot in the area, give me a call at 916.933.8352 or email at

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
