Happy New Year, y'all!

I can't wait to share more sweet family sessions with you that I had the honor of taking this past Holiday season but for now I will start with one of my favorite families - the Pressfield's! After many failed attempts to get this session done prior to the Holidays and failing (face rashes, rain, schedules not lining up, etc.) we finally got to do this session last week and I think the stars perfectly aligned for us with this beautiful location and weather! This family is extended family to my Husband and I and I love them so much. Their hearts are so big and I love watching their bond and love grow as a family. I can't wait to photograph them for many more years to come!

Wright Family | Roseville Family Photographer

Hi friends & family! Last week M and I got to hang out and photograph some of our closest friends, the Wright family! We love love love spending time with them and their kiddos. We had a bit of a rough start since little man had just woken up from a nap and as we waited for him to wake up more big sissy helped out a ton and was very patient (shout-out to Liz & Mikey for raising your kids with such great manners!). Going in to this session I had a few new poses I wanted to try out but when K wasn't having it I decided to have a more photojournalisti approach and to just roll with the punches and shoot, shoot, shoot whatever was going on. And guess what? These are some of my favorite images to date. There is something so sweet and pure about capturing real life moments and I am so glad I got to do just that with the Wright family.

Liz & Mikey, thanks for having us photograph your family again! I'm so glad you chose to have this season of life photographed (pretty spontaneously, I might add) and we love you guys so much!

Caplinger Family | Newcastle Family Photographer

Hi friends! The Holiday season is upon us and do you know what that means?! FAMILY PHOTOS GALORE! I am super excited that the Caplinger family were one of the first families to kick-off mini-session-madness (yes, that is all one word.... I declare it!).

Fun facts: this is the 3rd year in a row I have had the privilege of capturing their family photos and this year  their littlest one, Lillie, is around the same age as their oldest one was, Calvin, when I started doing their family photos. I absolutely love watching them grow and they will always hold such a special place in my heart. This year we got to do something even more memorable - we took their photos ON their new property. If you want some serious house envy just visit the #CaplingerFamilyFarm because I am pretty sure every time I come home from visiting their house I tell my Husband how much I love it. ;) 

Heather & Matt, I hope you treasure these photos for years to come and I am looking forward to the next time I get to capture your family (no pressure but in-home lifestyle session anyone?! We just need to appease the people and I am sure everyone wants to see the INSIDE of that gorgeous home of yours). 

Happy Holidays!

xoxo, Nicole
