Hi there! I'm Mindy and I'm so glad you decided to stop by today! As a natural light photographer I consider myself incredibly blessed to be able to use my love of photography to capture moments in time for my fantastic clients.

30/52 - Project 52 {Look Who's Driving!} | Sacramento Family Photographer

Watch out world - crazy drivers coming through!

Summer is a time of sun, water and fairs!  We've had a blast at two this week and have ate our share of corn dogs, funnel cake and way too expensive ice cream.  The rides always seem to be the best part though...for the kids at least.  It's interesting because due to their height they really aren't offered many ride options, but these cars are always a big hit.  It was a year ago, on this same car ride that my cautious son shocked me by going on it not once, but 3 times!  I'm so excited that my daughter enjoyed her first rides this year too - I can't wait to go on roller coasters with them when they get older.

She adored this "big kid" fun!

Always wanting what we can't have...sadly for these three, bumper cars will have to wait a few more years.

Oh and a bonus for me was getting to see my friend Erin's band play!

Clickin' Moms 2010 Scavenger Hunt | Sacramento Family Photographer

It has been a crazy month photography-wise for me!  For fun I decided to join in the hunting for the 2010 Clickin' Moms Scavenger Hunt and I've been searching high and low for hundreds of items on their list!  Today is the last day and I haven't done as well as I would have liked, but I've done pretty well considering what a BUSY month this has been for our family.  Here are a couple of my favorite pictures (these were from my first day hunting):

Birthday Girls {Sacramento Children's Photographer}

This morning I edited some pictures I recently took of my sweet little cousins...I can't believe they'll be turning 1 & 4 shortly, time really does pass us too quickly!  These girls are dear to my heart and I had fun trying to capture them and the joy they are so filled with.  As pre-school begins for one and walking nears for the other, I hope their mommy and daddy will enjoy these snapshots in time:

Miss A has the biggest, bluest eyes I've ever seen and a sweet personality to go along with them.  It seems like only yesterday that I photographed her newborn photos...

Miss H is 5 months younger than my son and it is so fun watching them grow up together the way her daddy and I enjoyed growing up as close cousins.

Happy Birthday Girls!

Summer Sweetness {Sacramento Child and Family Photographer}

I had the opportunity to photograph a lovely family one recent summer evening and just had to share some of the sweetness and playfulness we captured.

I love this one - what an adorable 1 year old and future heartbreaker!

Oh I do love these shoes!

Nothing sweeter than a daddy and his kids...

...and an extra hot mama!

I Heart Faces - Purple

29/52 - Project 52 {Family Times}

The kids stayed with Grandma & Grandpa.  Hubby and I enjoyed 5 days of quiet, restful bliss to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.  We came home and enjoyed seeing all the fun they had and spending time with Auntie Michelle and baby cousin Skye.

Family is such an important part of our lives.  I'm so thankful my children were able to create more sweet memories with their Auntie and cousin.

28/52 - Project 52 {Summer Fun}

Dinner with friends?  A bucket of fried chicken and a park means nobody has to clean their house.  Pure genius.

27/52 - Project 52 {Birthday Fun}

Clickin' Moms is having their 2nd Annual Scavenger Hunt and I have really been enjoying participating and "hunting" for as many items on the list as I can.  This is my first year and although I started a few days late into the game, I'm having a blast finding items from the list and photographing them with the "Clickin' Moms 2010" sign!  I was even able to use my own birthday candles to count as "fire".  One more crossed off the list.

Remember this post?  Well the fruits of my husband's labors are becoming abundant (and delicious):
