Wow, I haven’t posted anything in quite a while… 7 MONTHS to be exact! A new job, Rich’s new job and two very active kids have kinda taken over and it has been hard to re-adjust and get into a new groove.
I haven’t taken very many photos over the past half a year + and that has bummed me out a little bit. I just realized the other day that I didn’t even know where I have stored one of my fave cameras, my Nikon F1! But it feels as if the ripples in my pond are finally starting to settle and I’m able to day dream a little more and hear a creative voice whispering again.
Yesterday I started going through some of my photo archives (while my kids are sick and in bed) and realized I had takes some photos in the not-so-distant past. Some I hadn’t even shared yet. So over the next few days, and definitely next week while the hubby is away on business, I will take the time to get back on this old horse, my blog.
Below are a few senior portraits of Kalyn, who is the daughter of dear friends, who recently graduated from High School. Yay, Kalyn! It was really fun to hang out together and share some photo ideas and then try them out. This was my first senior portrait photoshoot and I loved it. Kalyn was energetic, trusting, and not camera shy at all. Tons of fun! Hopefully, I’ll get to do a few more of these!
I finally got around to taking pictures of my kids this morning. I LOVE the Fall for outdoor photo shoots for it’s bright colors and wonderfully warm light so we headed over to one of our neighborhood parks. Julia really loves to have her picture taken while Erik, as of lately, is a completely different story. Twice I stated out loud due to frustration that we were packing up because it obviously was not a good day for pictures. But then Julia would plead for us to stay so we did. For some reason Erik thought that it was incredibly fun to trick me every time I took a picture by smiling beautifully or giving me great expressions right up until I clicked the shutter release and then he would instantly change and give me frowns, scary faces, outrageously big eyes, or bring up a stick or toy, or whatever he happen to be holding in front of his face. Every. Time. Luckily my camera has rapid fire shooting so I was able to catch a lot of the in between moments and scary faces.

We spent a few days up on the North Yuba River at my uncle’s cabin and explored this part of historic Gold Country with the kids. Somehow I had managed to leave my fully charged Nikon camera at home, but at least I still had the camera on my phone to document our visit. During our visit we finally learned the true history of the ECV, which originated in Downieville, Ca, went off roading and climbed to the top of the Henness Pass (elev. 8444) in the Cruiser and maneuvered across the top of a Sierra Buttes ridge , rode bikes at Gold Lake, picked wild blackberries, stood with my family in the middle of a pitch dark county road and watched satellites and falling stars race across the night sky, fell asleep to the sound of the North Yuba River rushing in the canyon below, and listed to one of the greatest living historians/almanacs, my Uncle Bill.

Hi Everyone! I have been wanting to do this for quite some time and now I’m sooo excited to offer Fall Mini Sessions at two of the most picturesque locations that California has to offer! Please check out my flyer below and if you’d like to book one of these fabulous sessions please contact me. There are only 3 time slots per session available so I know they will fill quickly.
We are going to have so much fun! I have been daydreaming and planning out themed “sets” if you will, in my head for months now, scribbling and drawing out the details in my notepad, and finally it’s all coming together!
Imagine arriving at your photoshoot and finding yourself at One of San Francisco’s most famous and stunning beaches. There on the beach waiting for you and your family is a cozy picnic set up with blankets, a picnic basket and refreshments. While the sun is setting, one of the worlds most recognizable landmarks will be the backdrop to one of the most fun and memorable portrait sessions you have ever experienced. Think cool, fresh, salty breezes, sandy toes, cuddling with your honey, a nice bottle of wine, and beautiful sunsets.
Warm breezes rustle the tall golden grasses around you and take you back to an earlier time when life moved at a slower pace and family was the center of happiness. At this session you will be surrounded by those you love and rustic momentos that have history and an heirloom quality. Things from this era were sturdy, worn and made to last the test of time, just like the love you share with those closest to you. Imagine lemonade on a warm summer night, the trunk that passed through Ellis Island with your adventurous great-great grandmother, the earthy smell of wholesome, home grown vegetables….
