All Grown Up! │Sacramento Children's Photographer

Let's go back about 8 years...you will find me working with little toddlers in our church's nursery and one boy in particular was such a crack up!  I was so excited when his mom called me up and wanted to do a photo session with both kids.  I had a great time getting to know both kids again and we captured some fun moments during our time together too.  They are both so bright, friendly and funny - traits I am not the least surprised they possess knowing what a sweet lady their mom is.  Andrew + Rachel - I hope you're having a fantastic Halloween!

Still a crack-up with this "Thinker" pose!

Gotta love some gorgeous light!

Finally...an Incredible Family {MAY You Be Blessed Winners}│Sacramento Family Photographer

You may remember back in May I ran a campaign called "MAY You Be Blessed", my small way of honoring a well deserving family who has overcome adversity or is currently facing difficulties.  The deserving family received a complimentary photo session and disc of images.

I received nominations from many wonderful and deserving families and I am honored to introduce you to the amazing Escobar family.

 Here is the nomination email I received for Jaime and her family,

"Jaime Escobar- Busy mommy to 4 kids  ages  6, 5 year old twins and a 3 year old with special needs. Her pelvis broke when she was pregnant with the twins. When her youngest was born she had four kids two and under. Her youngest Maggie appeared fine when she was born but when she was a few months old she was diagnosed with Tubersclerosis, she has lot's of benign tumors in her brain which causes her to have seizures on a regular basis.  When Maggie was just two years old Jamie had to have brain surgery and was on bed rest for 3 months. Her mom & mother in law took turns helping with the kids. Jaime also had to have a knee surgery somewhere although I can't remember the exact timing of when. They were told that little Maggie would never walk or talk and at one point they were told to gather all of the family because Maggie had only a short time to live. They were also told Maggie would need a lobectomy but with the risk of loosing her hearing & eye sight.   Jaime decided against this and is giving Maggie a special liquid diet and she is showing lot's of improvement.  Maggie is now 3 years old and is doing great.  She is a little miracle.  She can walk and talk. She can laugh & play and do things that they never thought she could do.  Jaime keeps busy with activities for the older kids and therapy for little Maggie.  Jaime is so friendly & happy & encouraging.  One would never know that she has faced so many difficulties in the last few years.  Jaime just completed her first half marathon.  Family pictures would be so special to them.  It would be a reminder of all that they have been through and to celebrate how far they have come."

I had a wonderful time at our session Jaime and LOVED working with you sweet family!  You are an inspiration and blessing to many!

This image may not jump out to some as wonderful, but considering little Maggie was never expected to walk, this is not only beautiful but extraordinary!

Light + A Wagon + A Truck - Oh my!│Sacramento Children's Photographer

I had such a fun morning photographing this cute guy.  We had gorgeous light and he had a blast playing with my wagon and truck.  At 22 months old Mr. T was up and running most of the time, not interested in sitting still for pictures and can you blame him?  There are too many exciting things to explore at a park and I had fun following him along and trying to capture his innocent adventure.

I love what he's doing with his hands, just holding onto that one little finger.

Andi│Sacramento Senior Photographer

Andi, or "Teacher Andi" as my kids call her as she teaches their Wednesday night Bible class, is the cutest gal and so fun and easy-going to boot!  A recent college grad, she and I enjoyed an evening together chatting about her plans for the future (including grad school) and the trouble my kids cause in her class.  Just joking!  Kind of. :)  She's definitely one of those women beautiful both inside and out and I can't wait to see what these next few years hold for her!

Annie│Sacramento Senior Photographer

Just doing a little catching up on the blog....I've been way behind in posting!  Here are a few of the lovely Annie, a sweet gal I met up with back in August.
