Kim’s Zephyr Cove Beach and Campfire Dream {Lake Tahoe Engagement Photographer}

When I first heard Kim’s plan for a beach and campfire themed engagement I was beyond excited! She planned for us to meet at Zephyr Cove in beautiful South Lake Tahoe. After we wandered the beach, trekking miles away from the summer crowds 😉 we ended up in a peaceful little stretch of beach where we were able to play and run and enjoy the water and views. The weather was perfect and warm and the water was too inviting. I did not have to encourage them at all to splash each other:)

We all piled in her car to drive across the street to the Zephyr Cove Campground to end the session around a fire pit, eating s’mores, it was like being with old friends. Kim and her fiancé are a gorgeous pair, so insanely fun, full of life and love, and I have not laughed this much at a session in a long time. There was also some conversation about bacon and eating as much of it as possible. More laughter, some drinks, and these two reinforced why I adore couples! They are so honest and present and in love, it makes me so happy to spend time with them.

Thank you Kim for allowing me to meet you and your man! I loved everything about your session and am thrilled you two are going to be married!

Baby girl {Sacramento Newborn Photographer}

When baby Emma arrived, her parents fell completely in love. I had the pleasure of meeting Whitney at her maternity session earlier this year, and it was with much anticipation I had the joy of photographing her baby girl. It is heartwarming to watch new parents navigate the new waters of having a baby with such grace and love. The sweet snuggles, soft kisses, and deep breaths breathing in their newborn’s very essence is magic. Pure magic. There is nothing quite like the delicate skin and sweet features of a newborn girl. The fear and worry and uncertainty of having a baby, bringing the little one home, and pouring love on her as she grows up is as terrifying as it is amazingly wonderful. I watched these parents adoringly tend to their baby and I know they will always be able to see the bright hope of their future as a family. I know baby Emma realizes how much she is loved.

I hope they are doing well (as this little babe is now many months old :)) and have adjusted to life as the most adorable family of three! Congratulations to this happy new family!
