Best Laid Plans│Sacramento Family Photographer

"The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray." - Robert Burns

It's nice when a client comes to me with a vision for their session, a plan.  They know what they want and this makes it much easier for us to work together in creating the perfect session.  That is, however, assuming there are no other people to get in our way.....

Alicia is a planner, one of my dearest friends, she is always on time with her day calendar in hand and I appreciate how she always seems so organized and put together - even despite having 3 kids under 6!  On the flip side, I've also seen her in the chaos of life and am in awe with how graciously and calmly she goes with the flow and makes the best of any situation. 

Fast forward to our session last month - Alicia knew she wanted a beach session and after scouting the area I found what seemed like the perfect sandy beach location.  Unfortunately we were under a heat wave and the beach during our mid-week evening session was still completely drowning in people!  Not exactly ideal when you're looking to create a beautiful family portrait on the beach...with just your family and no one else.  Alicia and Joe were fantastic though and easily went with whatever I suggested and I hope they're happy with what we came up with.  They have three incredible children and it was a blast seeing their loving (and mischievous) interactions with one another!
