I Heart Faces│Slice of Life {Sacramento Family Photographer}

I Heart Faces' challenge theme this week is "Slice of Life" and I thought what better capture of a slice of life than this one from my session yesterday capturing the big boys playing around with the little girls, complete with a full casted leg, and Great Grandma adoring her newest little granddaughter?

Princess Lizzie Lou│Sacramento Newborn Photographer

Who doesn't love a sweet little newborn baby?  Even more, who doesn't love an incredibly easy-going, happy, content and lovely little baby girl?  I had been waiting a long time to photograph this little beauty and loved photographing her mama for her maternity session.  Oh Lizzie Lou - I completely adore you! 

Finally - a chance to use my vintage suitcases!

Love her beautiful smile here!

Expecting A Princess│Sacramento Maternity Photographer

Children are a gift, no matter their gender, but after having and loving her two boys this mama is ready for a little princess!  Meet my dear (and beautiful) friend Alicia, whose grace, joy and enthusiasm for life radiates to all who know her.  We had a great time planning out her maternity session which consisted of 3 different locations, so be prepared for a plethora of images of this gorgeous mama-to-be!

What pregnant mama doesn't love indulging in a little ice cream?

It adds so much more when I'm able to incorporate the whole family in a maternity session:

I can't decide which of these three is my favorite and loved both the color and b/w versions:

What to Wear│ Spring 2011

Despite the dreary, rainy weather we're having this week, Spring is here and Spring sessions can be so much fun!  I love how green everything is, so fresh and hopeful, full of new life.  Most people think bold colors are a must for photography sessions, but against the bold, fresh green grasses this gray/white/yellow palette would be perfection as it pops and draws all the attention to the subjects in a very subtle way.  Always a fan of yellow (it just makes me happy), I love the yellow headband paired with a simple white top and chinos.  And that yellow ruffle top?  Ahhh....I want!

Sweet Glory│Sacramento Children's Photographer

Being a part of my client's lives as their photographer and friend means the world to me!  I've been blessed with the privilege of photographing Sweet Glory since she was still in her mama's tummy!  You may remember her newborn session as well.  Fast forward six months and this little girl has grown up into quite the little beauty!  Despite battling the tail end of a cold, Glory could not have been sweeter or more cooperative throughout our session.  I hope you enjoy some of my favorites:

A couple of the family:

I just adore this bonnet:

The Other Newtons │Sacramento Family Photographer

When I married my husband I married his amazing family as well.  Here is a little peek from last Fall of my adorable niece and nephews and my gorgeous sister and brother-in-law, we are so blessed to call them neighbors as well!
