Announcing a Portrait Day in Carmichael!!

I am excited to offer a full day of portraits for all of my lovely Sacramento area clients! I will be at the Jensen Botanical Garden on Sunday, September 26th beginning at 12 noon. Sessions will be 1 hour and booked back to back, so please call or email ASAP to reserve your slot. The cost is a flat rate of $200 for the session, a disk of approximately 40-50 images, two 8x10 and two 5x7 prints, as well as 25 holiday cards with your choice of template! These templates are not your "usual" cards - they are geared specifically to showcase your photos. Additional sets of 25 cards can be purchased for $35. Can't wait to see you all!!

Welcome home, Ashton! | Newborn Photography

Ashton was just 5 days old when I photographed him. I have known his mom for a while and had the chance to do his older sister's 1 year old smashcake photos last year. Ashton's mom and dad are excellent parents and I don't know how they handle a toddler and an infant so well! My baby fever comes and gos, but it definitely flared up after these newborn and family photos!

Baby Kaydriana | Newborn & Lifestyle Photography

Meet my gorgeous 3 week old niece, Kaydriana! Photographers normally aim to photograph newborns within the first 10 days but since I had to fly to Seattle, we had to do 3 weeks...and let me tell ya, this girl wanted to stay wide awake for her photos! I had a difficult time posing her so I decided to move the family part of the session to their master bedroom. It helped that my sister and her husband have a gorgeous bed with a fluffy white comforter and huge windows. If only every home looked like this - it would make my job so easy!

I'm so in love with this little girl and had the privelige of watching her for almost 4 hours while my sister got her hair done- only the 2nd time my sister had been away from her and by far the longest and furthest away!

I'm sad that the next time I get to see her she will probably be crawling. I sure wish we lived closer!

If you have a room in your house with ample light (usually large windows or a sliding glass doors) and can un-clutter, don't hesitate to ask for a Lifestyle session - your house can be the most beautiful and natural place to photograph your family!
