I did my friend, B’s, newborn session a few days ago (I admit that I’m a bit behind on blogging, but I’m trying to catch up!).  Little W. is just such a cutie!  We talked months ago about doing a pose with her baby on their horse’s saddle and I am so excited that it worked out! 

P.S.  Isn’t B. such a gorgeous mama?  I think this is my new favorite mom/baby shot!

I had a wonderful time photographing little M. yesterday afternoon!  His mommy was well prepared with lots of knit goodies for me to use (some made by his gran’ma!).  At two weeks old, I rarely am able to get many sleeping pictures, since babies tend to become quite a bit more alert at that age.  However, little M. slept wonderfully and we went from one pose to the next with hardly a peep!

Time to get that family session done!  I was beyond thrilled when my good friend, Amy Schuff (who is a VERY talented photographer…  view her work HERE!), asked me if I’d be interested in doing a trade.  Her family is beyond adorable and super fun, too!  Check out how cute they are… 



Seriously.  LOVE this.old-sacramento-couples-pictures

And this!  The unplanned moments are always my favorite.  I told mom & dad to kiss and the kids did too.  🙂candid-lifestyle-portraits-sacramento


 And then at the end, we just let the kids run wild.  This is one of my favorites from the session (it TOTALLY reminds me of how my own busy/fun kiddos are!).rocklin-lifestyle-portraiture

Remember THIS beautiful mama-to-be?  Well, I had the amazing privilege to attend the birth today!  SUCH an honor!  And their new little guy is just as (tiny and) cute as can be!!  I got there as soon as I could after they were admitted.  She hadn’t gotten the epidural yet and her doula and hubby were helping her through some tough contractions…
