After enjoying many winter storms these past few months, I’ll admit it’s been nice having a little sunshine to welcome in Spring. In years past I’ve always planned a photo session around March to commemorate my children’s upcoming April birthdays, but this year we’ve been so busy I hadn’t really thought much about a photo session. In February my daughter and I begin a new chapter together: homeschooling. While I wouldn’t recommend diving into this particular chapter while in the midst of purchasing a home and making renovations, this time we are getting together has been such a blessing. While still busy in other activities such as dance and now running club and tennis, I’m thankful for this extra time together. Blessed by the opportunity to get to know my girl better through unhurried snuggles and more frequent conversations. I’m treasuring the chance to see what she gets excited to learn and how passionate and creative she can be when inspired.

A couple of weeks or so ago when we were driving and enjoying an amazing sunset I mentioned to her that the light was so beautiful and I wanted to do a photo session of her soon. Not she and brother as we almost always did, but just her. She shrugged her shoulders in the backseat and looking out the window towards the fading light said, “Hmmm…maybe that could be fun.”

Preparing for a shoot in our new community last week I knew I wanted to go scout locations. I mentioned it to her and within about 20 minutes we were out the door with promises of just a “quick mini-shoot” and that we’d be home in another half hour for the dinner my husband was preparing.

I loved sneaking away with her last minute like this! She was pretty much up for anything and enjoyed exploring a new town she’d mostly only driven through. While we took about 15 minutes longer than promised, I loved this fun session with my girl and will forever remember the memories we captured!

The sun may have been shining, but it was joined by an icy wind that made us both shiver!  She tried hard not to let it bother her, but these next two pictures captured her “frozen” smile and her attempt to block the wind with her hat. Haha!  Love my girl!

Hello my lovely clients and friends…

I’m excited to announce I’m booked up through the rest of 2016!  I want to thank each and every one of you for supporting me and my photography and look forward to seeing you in 2017.  I have a few photography friends still taking on sessions so let me know if you need a referral.

    Congrats, Mindy! I’m so happy to hear that you are still shooting in your new location. And obviously, you’re shooting A LOT! 🙂 So awesome. P.S. We were at Apple Hill on Sunday, and I’m so jealous of all the colorful leaves on the 50 Corridor. Wish some of that color would make it’s way over to the 80 Corridor — although I have heard that the leaves near the Yuba River are a gorgeous yellow right now.ReplyCancel

Time.  It is doing what is has always done – flying by!

The reality of that fact is seen each time I photograph families of past photography clients and see how the children have grown.  These cuties I photographed as their preschool photographer and it was such a treat to see how they have grown when we held their recent family photo session in Fair Oaks.

Let’s take a look back at one of my Fall family mini-sessions today. This sweet girl had just turned 1 year old and was happy to bring mom and dad along for our session. She was even so excited for her first modeling opportunity she brought Grandma along!

Although a bit camera shy, I could tell throughout our session that little Miss A loved having fun and laughing. Her adorable smile showed off those precious little baby teeth and she adored having mom and dad swing her. As new clients to Mindy Newton Photography I enjoyed meeting this kind-hearted family and was glad we were able to have a little sunshine for our session despite a rainy day forecast.

Old Sacramento is such a great location for photo sessions with a variety of brick and wood backgrounds and my favorite – arched doorways! As an Old Sac family photographer I could take three different families to Old Sac in one week and due to the variety of backdrops throughout town it could look like I had used three different locations for those sessions.  In this short custom mini-session we were able to utilize three unique settings alone!

Mom did a fantastic job styling this session and I especially loved all of the attention to detail with the accessories including dad’s statement bow tie!  From head to toe each family member looked terrific for this urban, old-world location.  Such a sweet and loving family – I can just hear the giggles again as I look through their images!

When I first received a call from this mom inquiring about a session I remember her being concerned, as most moms are, about whether I could corral her 3 young kiddos and get any good images of them together. I assured her we would have fun and not to worry.  On the day of our Custom Mini-Session in Old Sacramento, despite a chilly wind, I think we had a great time capturing this family and their energetic, adorable and fun-loving kiddos!  I was so glad they included their lovely foreign exchange students in our photo session as well.
