Brittany’s downtown portfolio shoot

Brittany needed some updated shots for her portfolio, so we headed up to Folsom for a location shoot. Old town was a little crowded with last minute Christmas shoppers, so we headed over to Lake Natoma Inn to avoid all the people. The light was good and so was the scenery. We both laughed a lot and had a great time! It was nice to show the girl from Oakland all the charm that little Folsom has to offer!

Mitchell’s 7th birthday party with Julie of Nature’s Critters

My oldest will be 7 years old come Christmas Eve. Yes, he’s a Christmas Eve baby, my first and three weeks early I might add. Pretty cool Christmas present if you ask me. We always try to throw him a party as early in the month as possible to try and separate the celebration a little bit for him. This year we had Julie from Nature’s Critters as our entertainment. She’s just wonderful; I highly recommend her!

Here’s an excerpt from her site:

Nature’s Critters is an educational live animal presentation designed to help kids of all ages better understand and appreciate the world around them. Naturalist Julie Allen delivers important messages disguised as fun and interactive entertainment. The children will delight in meeting and touching live animals and seeing them through Julie’s eyes-as wonderful members of our living family. Six to eight animals will be at your child’s party and each animal friend is touchable by the children. Every child gets their own photo with their favorite animal and the photo is theirs to keep as a souvenir!

The theme was Transformers…

Adrienne’s maternity shot

When Adrienne contacted me to capture her beautiful pregnancy for her I was flattered. First of all, I love maternity shots; pregnant women just have a certain glow… Secondly, Adrienne is a local photographer. So, when one of your own asks you to take pictures, it’s extra special! You can see her work here: Adrienne Orilla

Adrienne was so lovely, poised and confident. A woman truly comfortable in her own skin. She just radiates with joy and confidence to me. Here are just a few of my favorite shots. I know her husband is going to love them!
