Ceara’s Mom and I met years ago at my son’s preschool where I am the school photographer.  I got to photograph her with her cousins a few years ago in Old Sacramento and finally the time came for her Senior Portraits.  She knew that she wanted to take photographs at the stables where she trains and rides her horse.  I couldn’t wait.  I’m a huge horse lover and loved every minute of capturing her during this special time in her life.  We braved the cold weather to capture the green grass and had a blast capturing photographs around the barn, stables and pasture.  I love the relationships I have the privileged of experiencing in my business and am always thrilled to continually capture milestones in my client’s life.  Thank you Ceara and Kim!  Can’t wait for little sis.

Ceara attends Rocklin High School and loves anything theater related or reading and writing.  She’s in the Drama Club, High School Theater and loves riding horses.  Her favorite senior year memory was homecoming!  She loved working with her horse for the photographs and was really excited to see how well the pictures turned out.  She’ll most likely attend Sonoma State University and looks forward to doing what she loves in her future!

Good luck with the rest of senior year Ceara and Congratulations on your upcoming graduation!

That’s right! She’s almost done.

Beth Shalom Bar Mitzvah

This family is possibly one of the sweetest families ever.  Jonathan’s project was with the K9s for Warriors and was close to home for him.  His father served in the military and currently has one of the K9s, Deuce, as a service dog.  It’s always wonderful to be around a well trained dog and Deuce is one of those you want to take home with you.  Jonathan’s service was at Beth Shalom and I was able to photograph the ceremony from a peep hole up in the attic.  It was a beautiful view.  Photographing a ceremony always feels special because it’s truly an honor to be part of something so awesome.  I was able to photograph the ceremony, part of the luncheon and family portraits all without it raining on us.

This family holds a special place in my heart and this night was truly a special celebration.  These twins had the awesome experience of sharing in their Bat Mitzvah.  They both love nature and the outdoors and Party Concierge made that dream a reality.  The Center at 2300 was transformed into a camp site and it was awesome!  Beautiful picnic tables, a campfire, a cabin to hang out in and a smores roasting station.  DJ Cam from Denon and Doyle created a fantastic dance party for their Bat Mitzvah.  The kids had such a fun time playing games and dancing the night away.  Truly an event to remember.

Portraits were taken at Bet Haverim, Davis, Ca

I wanted to feature this lovely family.  We created their beautiful family portraits last fall on Sutter Street in Folsom.  We had such a great time and they ordered up a few canvases to enjoy on their walls!  I’m booking mini sessions this fall on October 9th and 23rd and still have a few spots left.  Prices start at $225.  Here’s a link to all the information:  Fall Mini Sessions
