You know when your client’s daughter comes in wearing glow-in-the-dark cat ears, it’s going to be a good session <3

Thanks to the constant barrage of rain that we’re getting in Northern California lately, I’ve had to postpone so many shoots around here, which is such a bummer! I do love rain, but it’s making me yearn for some sun drenched summer days (minus the 100 degree heat of course), like this one I shoot for my friend Ashley of Hither & Thither. Ashley, her husband, Aaron and I met up about an hour outside of Sacramento in Winters, next to the charming little Putah Creek. They grabbed some canoes & treats (and we stumbled on that magical hammock) while I captured them enjoying the water and sun for a piece for Ashley’s blog (link to her original post here).

After shooting this, I was on such a HIGH! I felt like I had shot for a magazine, and I dream of a couple would also do something like this for their engagement session! So any recently engaged couples interested? Let’s do this, I’m game!!

a look back at 2016 .

January 2, 2017

I rarely get my act together at the end of the year to do a post like this, so it was a real treat for me to pull some of my favorite images from 2016. There is something pretty satisfying in seeing work that you’ve created in the past year all in one place!

Looking back as well, I’m so grateful for all the opportunities I had, and the people I got the work with. On top of all the beautiful couples, weddings, families and bloggers, it was most exciting to work with companies like Chipotle & Whole Foods (and all the people I met working with them)! Those were amazing opportunities, and I hope for more in the future!

So with that, a cheers to the coming year. I can’t wait to share what it looks like!

The dreaminess. The pure dreaminess though.

These two celebrated their one year anniversary this week, so I thought it would apropo to share images from a post-wedding session we did together. I whipped up a flower crown & a bouquet, and we froliced in nature while taking photos all the while. :)

I still love doing post wedding sessions (several years ago, it was a “thing” to do what was called “trash the dress” sessions. Dresses weren’t really trashed, if anything, they actually came out cleaner, especially if they went into the water!), because it’s a really fun way to get unique & fun photos without the constraints of the wedding timeline (which can often be super tight and/or stressful). We can have more of a leisurely time getting some creative images in your wedding attire, and I mean, who doesn’t want to get dressed up again for fun? I know I totally would!
