When I came across this older session I never blogged I stumbled upon another favorite family photo session that I somehow neglected to share here on the blog too!

Sacramento natives, this family loves the river and can frequently be found there on a weekend afternoon. It was only natural that we chose the American River for our photography location and as a Sacramento photographer I am thankful to have such a beautiful natural backdrop so close for us to take advantage of.

As always with this great family – we had fun at our photo session with some running, jumping, giggling and a tiny bit of cuddling of course.  I love seeing how these boys have grown and enjoying any time I get to spend with their sweet mom and dad.

While posting last week’s Greenhalgh family photography from this past fall at Gibson Ranch I realized I never shared their mini-session from last year and it was just too good not to share.  Better late than never, right?!

Loved these shots of their youngest who dreams of being a cowboy!

This woman has one of the best laughs and and is a terrific boy mama – loving her boys and letting them be the wild and fun kiddos they are.  From Taekwando to little league, to motorcycles and mud – this family knows how to have fun and this mama isn’t afraid to let her boys be boys.

For a 2nd year in a row I was able to photograph this family during one of my fall mini-sessions at Gibson Ranch.  Photography at Gibson Ranch is wonderful because there are so many different locations to choose from thanks to acres of land and a variety of outbuildings and scenery. In addition to being a fantastic location for photography, check out Gibson Ranch as they host many concerts, festivals and community activities.

Knowing that their youngest has his heart set on being a cowboy – I knew this would be the perfect location for this family’s session.  What future cowboy wouldn’t love wandering around and posing near barns and fences with the sound of neighing horses in the background?  As a mini-session we didn’t have a lot of time, but I was thrilled with the variety we were able to get and knew that it captured this family perfectly!

Did I mention the weather was threatening rain for most of the day with off and on clouds and sunshine?  Well the sun peeked out for this final mini-session of the day and the sunset made our silhouette shots just amazing!

I’m such a fan of silhouette images, but living in the “City of Trees” can make it challenging to find unobstructed views of the skyline.  Fortunately we were able to find a way to take advantage of the sky and capture these silhouettes that we all love!  Thank you once again Greenhalgh family for trusting me with your family memories!

A new year is here and what could be better to share on the blog than a new baby?!

It was a surprisingly warm October morning for our session so we headed outside to capture some family moments before returning inside to finish our lifestyle newborn session.  I adore shooting lifestyle newborn photography and Little Liam’s newborn photo session was extra special as we think the world of his mom and dad!  Our session was full of snuggles, giggles and even dancing.  Liam has been born into a family full of musical talent and I can’t wait to see what he will grow up to be!

When I arrived for our session I couldn’t get over how much hair Liam had!  It was so fluffy and adorable!  Like his big sister, he was completely easy-going and oh so lovable.  I couldn’t resist grabbing him for a few newborn cuddles in between photos.  Liam was awake for our entire session I think and yet I didn’t hear him cry once!  Such a handsome and mellow little guy.

I had a great time meeting Liam and am so happy for him as he joins an incredible family. I was blessed to be able to capture his big sister’s newborn photo shoot and had a blast photographing her first birthday cake smash too!  Thank you W family for continuing to trust me with these precious memories.  Wishing you a blessed 2016!

It was the last few days of Christmas vacation and this mama had been too worn out from the last few months to have scheduled our vacation with memory-filled, action-packed fun. The guilt set in a bit (as it always does) and after a few days of getting a full nights sleep I was ready to tackle a day of fun. I quickly set to work securing snow gear to borrow and asking my sister if she and my niece would like to join us for an afternoon in the snow. It was last minute, it wasn’t all day long, but it was JUST. RIGHT.

It was exactly what the kids and I needed.

I learned that my daughter was braver this year, but still clings to her dislike of the snow and fear of me getting hurt when I want to sled.

I learned my usually cautious son loved sledding and loved pelting me with snowballs even more!

I learned that it’s okay to NOT plan anything during vacation and to take the rest where you can find it.

Then, when your batteries are recharged a bit you can truly enjoy the life and adventure that awaits you.
