A few weeks ago a good friend of mine called & asked if I would come out and capture pictures of a little boy that she babysits! She wanted to surprise his parents with pictures! I agreed & have to say, felt sooo happy after our little photoshoot! He is the cutest baby EVER! He was the perfect subject! Thanks Mandye for surprising Billy’s parents with pictures! He was a joy to capture!!!!

I met Danielle a few months ago when I photographed her & her prom date! I knew as soon as I met her that I wanted her to be a Senior Rep for me!!! Getting ahead of the game we booked a little bit early & despite the 104 degree weather shot senior pictures! I had such a great time with her!

Best Wishes in all that you do, Danielle! You are an amazing girl with such a bright future ahead of you.

Can you believe that it is almost BACK 2 SCHOOL & the smell of newly sharpened pencils will fill the air? Kira received a few Haven Girl outfits from Little Posh Princess to model & with the 104 degree Redding weather we set up the studio in the house & did a few shots! Be sure to head over to Little Posh Princess — TONS of amazing DEALS & lots of NEW Fall items arriving daily!!!

Thanks, Kira for being such a GREAT model!!!! You are AWESOME!!!

.christmas in july.

Hello! Happy Tuesday! It’s been a busy month, already. I just got back from Fresno. I had the honor of capturing Katie & Brian Torwalt’s wedding! It was a great time!!!! Thank you, clients, for your patience as I balance having the kiddos home from school & summer activities! Yesterday I was diganosed with PINK EYE! Can you believe it? I have seen three different doctors for this eye issue that has been going on since the beginning of May! Hopefully it will clear up soon & I will be back to my contact lenses!!!! AHHH!! No FUN!

So, I finished up these pictures today & began thinking about Christmas Cards!!! If you are REALLY organized & want to book NOW for Christmas Pictures, now is the time!!! LOL!!
I really enjoyed capturing this family! They were so much fun! I compressed the images a little differently… sorry about the compression grain!!!
