Sacramento Engagement Photographer | Julia + Eric

Julia and Eric are getting married at one of my favorite venues (the beautiful Forest House Lodge in Foresthill, CA) next year. We chatted over e-mail to schedule their engagement, but once I met these two I was so excited. The cowboy boots went on and I loved every second. Julia and Eric both work with schools, they are kind, silly, and awesome people. We talked and laughed as we wandered around Effie Yeaw for their engagement photography. The light was lovely. Nothing makes a session like a happy couple, but throw in some golden light and everything is better.

I cannot emphasize the importance of an engagement session enough. It means so much to me to get to know my couples and learn about them, their families, and their lives. The day of the wedding is smoother, since they now know how I am going to quickly and efficiently move them through their portraits. It is all about maximizing the fun times, less portrait time means more time dancing the night away with their guests!! All of my collections include a complimentary engagement session for this very reason. Yes, folks get gorgeous photos without the pressure of a wedding day. Most importantly I gain some trust and we bond and the day of their celebration I am able to get even closer during their most intimate and emotional moments. This is what brings me the most joy in life and photography!

I love their vibe and their relationship. They have an effortless way with each other that draws people in. I loved how easy going they both are and I can tell their wedding is going to be phenomenally fun!! Congrats you two. Best of luck with the wedding plans and I will be seeing you in the mountains next summer!!

Sacramento Family Photographer | Sophie in Brentwood

I absolutely adore this family. Fatima and Stephen’s sessions have been some of my all time faves. Their wedding (and all of our photography sessions since) have been awesome. Fatima and Stephen and their kids are the best. Sophie turned one, so I had to photograph them again! This time I drove out to Brentwood to photograph this sweet girl at home.

Fatima absolutely adores her family and it shows. She has so much pride in both of her children. Tima is a wonderful, loving, and very attentive step-mom to Slater. Slater is the most polite, well behaved, and sweetest boy. I love hearing all about the newest snakes in his pet collection and how he’s doing in school. Sophie is a doll. She smiles and smiles for miles. I cannot get enough of her dimples. Her parents and brother are so in love with her and it shows.

Tima and Stephen have built a very happy home together. Their whole vibe is calm and loving and I always feel so at home around them. One of the best parts of my job is meeting new people I truly care about and love. I enjoy chatting with Tima and Stephen, I love getting updates on the kids. It warms my heart to follow their family on social media and over texts. Finding new friends who invite me into their home for photography and good conversation is amazing and if my career can do that, it is a win win win.

Sacramento Family Photographer | Reagan and her horse

Reagan loves her horse. This pony belonged to her mom, Jamie, and this old boy is 25 years old. Jamie wanted a photography session with her family to document their time with him. We met at Jamie’s parent’s home near the river in Sacramento. After loading up the trailer we headed out to one of her neighbor’s sunflower fields (which was beautiful and quiet first thing in the morning). Reagan ran around and played while Richard worked on getting the horse ready for his photoshoot.

I was so excited to photograph Reagan and her family this year. I had the pleasure of meeting Jamie and Richard years ago for their engagement and wedding, and maternity and newborn photos of baby Reagan. We also saw goats, Reagan wanted to go see the goats, and the walk down to see them was so peaceful. Reagan led her horse and marched us down the dirt road which was amazing for photos. Plus goats. Who doesn’t love a cute goat. The last time I saw this family Reagan was a newborn, so it was awesome to catch up and spend some time getting to know her. She is spunky, bright, and charming. She won my heart over by wanting to hold my hand and show me all around her grandparent’s neighborhood. I was sad to leave, this was definitely a morning well spent.
