.kalley + andrew. {worshipu photography course | tbs ranch, ca}

I had the honor of teaching a class at this years Worship U, formally know was School of Worship, at Bethel Church! If you aren’t familiar with Worship U, check it out here! It is incredible! A change your life experience! Every year I am just rocked by the students who come & pour their lives into going deeper!

Day 2 of the class I set up an actual photo session so that everyone taking the class can experience working with a “live” subject, interact with them, and at the same time show them the process of a photo shoot. The art of posing, interacting, encouraging, lighting, etc.

I was absolutely THRILLED this year that Kalley & Andrew were up for the 116 degree heat! Yep! Redding’s hottest day of the year landed on the class & we just had to go for it! Kalley & Andrew were a dream to capture!!! I have been getting to know them through a marriage class that they & Ben & I participate in. I am in awe of their courage to build a happy marriage & to continually fall in love with each other! I so admire them both!

Andrew & Kalley!!! Thank you! Thank you! You are AWESOME!

TBS Ranch! It’s a dream to photograph at your venue! Thank you so much!

C E L I N E

One of  my favorite families in Redding, the LeClerc’s!  I have photographed the girls a handful of times over the years & every time it is absolutely delightful!

We didn’t quite get to Celine’s Senior Pics, so a year later, & a hair cut later too, a photo shoot happened!

Celine, you are absolutely stunning! Goodness! Thank you for letting me capture you!

I cannot wait to see where life takes you! I know it is going to be amazing!!!!

.sweet sixteen. {redding, ca portrait photographer}

I typically don’t take “spur of the moment” photo shoots! I received a text one early morning to see about shooting a “sweet sixteen” later that evening!

Being that it was at 7:30 p.m. I didn’t hesitate. I knew, at least, the lighting would be perfection!  & a sweet sixteen AH!  I knew it had to be special! It was absolutely the sweetest!

Beckah! Happy Sweet 16! You are absolutely gorgeous! I so loved capturing your celebration!Audrey & Hadley!  You are amazing & I’m so happy you texted me!!!!!
