in children

The McKinley Park roses make the perfect backdrop for family pictures in Sacramento and it was no exception on this well-timed cloudy day. I love the bright sun for photographs, but the soft light of an overcast sky is just better for some locations and I was glad for it on this day.

I’ve been photographing little Bennie since he was in his mama’s (perfect) belly and have had the opportunity to photograph him every year since then. For this session, his mom really wanted an image of Bennie playing with his best friend and I think we nailed it! Running through the roses and even the dog looks like he’s smiling!
