I'm Back!

You may have noticed that my blog hasn't been updated in over a year, so I wanted to explain what I've been doing all of this time. In October 2013, I gave birth to a 1lb 3oz baby boy named Roscoe. He was hospitalized due to his prematurity and then due to his ongoing heart and lung development issues. I cared for him every day to make sure that he knew what love was, even in a cold hospital environment. My son grew slowly and steadily for over 9 months, but sadly he passed away a few months ago. My husband kept a blog each day of Roscoe's life, so there are plenty of pictures and videos of the happy time we had with our boy. Quite honestly the story had enough twists and turns to equal a hollywood blockbuster. You can read the blog in its entirety here.

I have returned to photography full-time, so over the next few weeks you'll be able to see some of the recent sessions that I've done as 2014 nears its close. More to come soon!

Jaden's 1-Year Studio Session

6 months ago I did this kiddos 6-month session, and I can't believe it's already been 6 more months! We did his 1-year session in studio using everything from balloons to an old firetruck. It's so much fun for me to see how much kids change over the months, between sessions. He was much more mobile and active this time around. :) Here are a few favorites -

Avonlee's 6-Month Session - Placerville, CA

This session was so fun for many different reasons! I've been photographing this baby since before she was even born in mommy's belly. We used a lot of the same props we used in her newborn session for this one to show how much she's grown, and so mom could frame the pictures together if she wants to. We also added in the rocking chair, which was her mom's when she was a baby so not only was it cute, but it added sentimental value to the pictures as well. And not to mention this AWESOME field of wildflowers! How cool is this? Here are a few of my favorites from the bunch: 

This kid was cracking me up with some of these poses!

Katie's Senior Session - Auburn, CA

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th! Here's a senior session I shot a few months ago. Katie was freezing the entire time but was the biggest trouper through the entire thing! I love the way these turned out. Here's a few of my favorite:

Alison's Maternity Session - Lincoln, CA

I've had a busy busy past month that has caused me to now be a month behind on my blog. Oopsie! O-well. I'm here now and that's all that matters, right? Right. Welp, today I'm sharing a recent maternity session I shot. This is way cool for me to look at now because I just shot this gorgeous baby girls newborn session a couple weeks ago so I'll be sharing those soon too! I loved this session for so many reasons! We had such a beautiful location, great light and of course, wonderful models. ;)

Nathanael's Senior Session - Auburn, CA

Hey guys! Here's a recent fun senior session I shot in Auburn, CA. Nathanael is a really laid back guy and I think we captured that perfectly in all of his pictures.
I think my favorite part of this session was actually his older sister standing behind me yelling, "FAKE!" every time he gave a fake smile at the camera. I laughed every time.
