Seniors ~ Redding California Portrait Photographer

I’ve been meaning to post these for a while now….Earlier this month I went back up to Montana to photograph a wedding and several portraits.  The last day I was up there we did a senior session for 3 girls who have been the best of friends for quite some time now.

We ended up having such a blast, did we girls??? You girls had lots of wonderful ideas and even though we didn’t get the rain, we still ended up with some amazing photos…(trust me!)

So the long awaited sneak peek…….

and this is how the session ended! :)

Coming up we have lots of Babies, Families and more Weddings!!!!

Oh and watch for our Fall Mini Session special in the next couple of days! :)

Breanna + Zach ~ Flathead Valley, Montana Wedding Photographer

I am so happy to finally be able to share some photos from the exquisite wedding for Breanna & Zach at the beautiful Flathead Lake Lodge in Bigfork, Montana. My good friend and fellow photographer Jill Tagliareni came along with us. We had a blast!!!

B & Z, thank you so much for allowing us to capture these moments of your life together. What a celebration it was and an honor to be there for both your wedding and the special vow renewal of your parents as well.

Enjoy this sneak peek everyone! This is a BIG post! :)

Breanna’s amazing Monique Lhuillier wedding gown:

Getting her hair done.

They met each other before the ceremony, and this was their first glance.

And they surprised Breanna’s mom with a special vow renewal service immediately after the ceremony.  It was a beautiful surprise!

The details were just so fabulous, I had a difficult time choosing which ones to post so I chose to post more than usual this time.

Her calligraphic artist was her maid of honor.  She designed the logo for Breanna and Zach’s special day, along with the table numbers and name cards.    She does amazing work.

Breanna’s Fabulous shoes!

Thanks so much for looking! Feel free to let me know what you think!

On a personal note, we have finally found a home here in Redding and will be moving over the weekend.

I apologize in advance for all the delays lately, but all orders, galleries, blog posts & emails will be delayed by at least 1-2  weeks more.

After we get settled in, I expect to be back in the FULL swing of things and I will be able to get things done MUCH quicker.

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend! :)

Busy Busy…Redding, California Portrait Photographer

This little cutie bug whom I have been photographing since he was just a few weeks old….Now he just turned ONE last month!!! He was so funny to watch.   He DESTROYED his cake!!!! Seriously the biggest mess any one yr old has ever made with his cake, all the while he was laughing with his little “evil genius” laugh that I can still hear!! :)  He is such a handsome little dude!!

see there is nothing left at all….

and my FAVORITE of the day…He was trying to share some cake with me..

he needed a bath after THAT mess!!! HA! I LOVE this tub!  I love when little ones splash in the water…..makes for some great photos! :)

Little birthday boy’s Momma in the middle and her gorgeous sisters……

and a beautiful family from Libby, MT…….

And FINALLY a little preview  for Breanna & Zach!!

I will be posting several from this beautiful wedding in the next couple weeks, but for now I have just a few of my (MANY) favorite images from their day!!

On another note…….we have officially moved to Northern California!!!!!!

until next time………………………………….

Jackie + Dan

So, first, I am sorry to disappear on everyone! The busy wedding/Summer season is in full swing and I have been trying to do my best just to keep up!!!

I have many images to post, but tonight I am posting the beautiful wedding of Jackie & Dan! This couple was so in love with each other which is always a good thing, right?? Dan couldn’t keep his eyes off of her and he just totally beamed everytime he looked at her. Here is a sneak peek for now…..

The event took place at the Swan River Inn in Bigfork, Montana.

I love these next few “silly” photos.  They were so much fun.

Queen for a day! :)

Isn’t she a beautiful bride?

This one was captured by my lovely assistant/2nd shooter…a.k.a. my daughter! :)

And finally leaving you with a favorite of the day.  This was a little later in the evening as the sun was about to set. I love the lighting & sun flare here! :)

Jackie & Dan:

THANK YOU so much for allowing us to be apart of your day and for trusting us to capture these moments that mean most to you.

I will have your gallery up soon!!!!

Feel free to let me know what you all think.

Getting Married

This awesome couple will be getting married in September this year!  (Can’t wait!!!)  We recently shot their engagement session in Glacier National Park.  We had a a great time waiting for the sun to set.

Annie + Tim…I hope you love these as much as I do!!!

OOPS! Forgot about this one… I love it!!

A Rodeo Princess and Her Family

This STUNNING  young girl is not only beautiful,  but she is a Rodeo Princess.  We had so much fun during her senior session at one of my favorite locations.  “C’s” family came along for a few family portraits and they were brave enough to withstand the crazy wind we had that day!    I know “C” and her mom are dying to see a few from the session, so here is sneak peek for them!

Let me know what you think……

Catchin Up~ El Dorado Hills, Folsom California Photographer

Here are some recent sneak peeks that I know these two moms are anxious to see!

One of my new favorite little girls. She was lots of fun and full of energy.  I had fun following her around with my camera! :)
Here is adorable Miss “R”….

Even More Fundraiser Sneak Peaks

I have been working hard at getting all of the 29 sessions edited so I can get all 29 galleries online by tomorrow!! I have not been able to return most of my emails during this process,  so I apologize.  I will return all emails by this weekend.

Here are a few more sneak peeks.   enJOY~

This first image is one of my new favorites!  I love it!  This couple was so much fun and they even helped with making some of the little ones smile.  Thanks for being so great to work with “B” & “A”!!

This little girl is such a doll.  She came last year so it was so good to see her again.  It is amazing how much a child changes in just one year.

These next two little guys came last year as well and WOW! have they grown too! I can’t believe the difference in them.

Aren’t they the cutest ever??

Proud Daddy and his sweet girl!

Sisters~ they are so fun to watch and photograph.

~Siblings~ a super sweet family.

~and another great family~
