S I S T E R S

This shoot was so fun! Oh the giggles & smiles! It made me imagine both of these two young! How young at heart they were during the shoot!

Ingamae & I have been friends now for several years & how I love her!

If  you should ever meet her she will instantly want to take your pics… with her iphone! I often call her a PROFESSIONAL iPHONE photographer! LOL!

She was so excited to share the news that her sister was coming to visit!!!

Ingamae asked if we could do a little “mini” sister shoot! Oh how much fun we had!!!!

Kelly! AH! You are so wonderful! It was so fun meeting you & capturing you! You are absolutely stunning!

Inga! I love you! You radiate joy! It is so contagious!

.the flacks. {Redding, CA Photographer}

Pretty much two or three times a week I hear … “Can we get together with the Flacks?” “Can we have the Flacks over?” “We should have a BBQ with the Flacks!”

I love this iphone shot!! Happy times together at In & Out.

Our family absolutely loves & cherishes our friendship with the Flacks! Such an incredible family they are!!

Sort of a last minute shoot, Kami asked if we could pull something off for Mother’s Day! So, the Sunday before Mother’s Day the Flack Family had a photo shoot!

I was absolutely thrilled to capture them & the connection that their family so beautifully keeps! AHH!

Love you so much, Flack Family! You are truly an inspiration to us! The way you live & the way you love is incredible!

.second shooter-ness. {all saints episcopal church wedding | redding, ca}

I recently had the opportunity to be a second shooter for Lucus Sankey Photography!

BridalParty_013blog

One of my new year’s resolutions was to second shoot for a photographer! I truly have wanted the perspective of what being a second shooter looked like!

I have never had that oppurtunity, believe it or not, and having a second shooter by my side, I really wanted a glimpse into their world!

It was a great day! Super fun, but definitely harder than I thought. Being a boss/lead for the last five years, & then being told what to do was a little new to me! LOL!

I did it with a happy heart & had a great day serving Luke & being “bossed” around! Just kidding!

Congratulations Luke & Sarah! It was such an honor & privilege to be a part of your day & capture a few of the “in between” moments!

Luke & Sarah were married at All Saints Episcopal Church here in Redding, CA! Absolutely AMAZING church to be married in!!!

I absolutely love shooting in this church! There are so many angles & lines & goodness to be captured!
