Heartstrings {Sacramento & Rocklin Baby and Children’s photographer}

I love being a photographer.  It is such a fun job, and is really a dream come true for me!  But I have a confession to make.  I don’t photograph my own children as much as I should.  I mean, I take snapshots of them often, but I don’t usually do “real sessions” with them (at least, not very often).  When my third child was born, I swore to myself that she would get just as many pictures taken of her as my other two had when they were babies.  I was the third in my family and was hardly photographed at all as a baby (seriously.  I have two scrapbook pages of pictures under age one and they were all taken too far away that you can’t even tell what I looked like!) so I didn’t want the same thing to happen in our family.  Unfortunately, I’ve failed miserably.  Kate, my oldest, has thousands of pictures from her first year.  Gavin has quite a few, too.  Sophia… not so much.  But I’m trying (that counts for something, right?).  So earlier this week, after we’d sent Kate off to school for the day, I decided to do a real photo shoot with Gavin and Sophia.  The light in my bedroom is PERFECT in the early morning (for taking pictures, anyway…) so I took them upstairs and we had a little playdate with my camera.  🙂  I am thrilled with the results.  I got exactly what I was hoping for.  Their personalities totally shined through in the pictures.  Gavin – the sweet, loving four year old that he is.  Sophia – my little ten month old who is now speedily crawling everywhere and is so happy all the time.  I love it!  Now if only I could get a session in with all three of my kids together!!!  Some of these are definitely destined to be wall portraits.  Here are a few favorites…
