Matt + Chelsey | Old Sacramento Engagement Photographer

Happy Wednesday, friends! It's been a busy couple of weeks over here as I have had two weddings (can't wait to share more!) and this sweet engagement session. I've known Matt (aka CHEEEEWWWW) for TEN years and his family is basically my family so when his sweet fiancée emailed me about photographing their wedding (before they had even found a venue) just a couple weeks after their proposal I was so excited! Chelsey has such a sweet soul and brings out such a soft side in Matt that is endearing to witness. Chelsey had the idea of doing a themed engagement session to make it a little bit more lighthearted and easy to be in front of the camera and after seeing the final results I am absolutely in love.

Chelsey & Matt - thank you for choosing me to capture this incredible season in your lives. I am counting down the days until your Bodega Bay wedding!

Kevin + Michelle | Sacramento Vizcaya Wedding

Wow.... How it's already Wednesday again I will never know but since it is.... Happy Wedding Wednesday! I am thrilled to be sharing Kevin & Michelle's sweet day with y'all. This couple was so filled with light and love - the day had so much beauty and I loved watching them come together as a family in Christ. Just to top it off, their wedding took place at one of the most beautiful Sacramento venues, Vizacaya, talk about all the heart eyes! I am so grateful to have been their photographer and I look forward to some future coffee dates with these two!

John + Jenessa | Sacramento Gibson Ranch Engagement

Happy Saturday! I hope you are drinking a nice iced beverage as you are reading this because here in Sacramento it's still 90°+ outside and I am DYING of sticky skin and weird tan lines. Today basically feels the exact same as a couple weeks back when we took these sweet engagement photos! John & Jenessa braved the heat, took some sips of liquid courage out of coffee cups (my kind of people, you guys!), and goofed around in front of the camera. It was perfect!

John & Jenessa, thank you guys for letting me capture this season of your life and for being so fun & carefree! I am counting down the days until your beautiful October wedding!

Natalie + Will | Sacramento Lifestyle Photographer | Gibson Ranch County Park

Happy Friday!

I am so excited to be sharing this sweet session with you all mostly because that means I am finally catching up on work ;) but also because I love these two and I love photographing them. This is the third time I have photographed Natalie and the second time I have photographed Natalie & Will together. One reason I love photographing them is because their love is so evident which makes it so easily to capture and also so fun to capture! 

Natalie & Will - thank you so much for trusting and believing in me, for laughing at me while I hyperventilate behind the lens because the light is so beautiful, and for making sessions so much fun! 

I also need to give a shout-out to all the support and words of affirmation for my work Natalie has given me since I started photographing them a year and a half ago. You guys are dream clients and I want to clone you! Thank you for choosing me again and again and I can't wait to photograph the next big or small moment in your life!

Pressfield Family | Mini Session

Happy Friday, friends! I am very excited to be sharing this family's mini session on the blog tonight. Reason number one? I get to spend half my week with the smallest babe in these photos and take care of him! I might be a little biased, but I totally hit the nanny jackpot with them. Currently my days with Eli typically consist of reading (or skimming) the same books over and over again, adventuring across the street (where these photos were taken) to pick up fall leaves, lots of cuddly hugs, and microwaving my coffee multiple times. I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Lissa & Justin, you and your boys are so incredible. I have loved every minute I have been able to spend with your family and I am so honored to be Eli's nanny. Thank you for trusting me & treating me like family. Looking forward to the many more days & adventures that await. 

xoxo

Hart Family | Mini Session

QUESTION: Who loves wining giveaways?! ANSWER: Everyone in the whole wide world! 

I was so excited that this little family won a giveaway contest from earlier in November. We finally got the chance to meet and complete the session and it was so much fun! I loved playing peek-a-boo behind my camera to get little Benny to smile. Thanks so much for entering the contest - I hope to photograph you guys again in the future!

Caplinger Family | Mini Session

Hi friends! I am so excited to share this beautiful mini session from a couple weeks ago. I was honored to photograph the Caplinger family for the second year in a row and to meet their newest addition, making them a family of FOUR! I hold this family close to my heart and I loved being able to catch up with them during their session. Thank you so much for choosing me to photograph you guys during this season!

WELCOME!

Hi, hey, how ya doing?!

I am so excited to start blogging and cannot wait to share some heart and words behind these images I capture and the clients I am so very blessed to have. To kick off this thing with a bang I want to share with you all a few fun facts about myself. After you read through the fun facts please share with me a fun fact about yourself in the comments below!

  1. I have been married to my better half for 18 months and I cannot wait to keep trucking through life with him by my side. 
  2. We have a frenchie named Kemo and he is seriously funny. 
  3. I like long walks and iced coffee no matter rain or shine.
  4. I nanny part-time for the sweetest little babe and slobbery kisses pull my heart strings every single time.
  5. My love language is quality time but I sure love random gifts too. 
  6. I'm an ex-partner (aka Starbucks Barista) and whenever I go into a Starbucks I have to fight the urge to jump on bar and help out. 
  7. Although I was born and raised in the East Bay and now currently reside in the Sacramento area, I lived in Portland for a short but super sweet 6 months and most days I feel like my heart is still over there wandering the streets without me. I hope one day to move back because Northwest really is the best.
  8. My family is Sicilian and crazy but I love them more than words can say. Every family gathering includes bread, olives, and cheese.
  9. I have about 18 projects I eventually intend to get to in the garage. My husband doesn't believe me but I promise! 
  10. I have to-do lists for my to-do list, no joke. I love the feeling of crossing off something I have gotten done! 

Woo! Thanks for reading, friends. I can't wait to read some silly or serious facts about you!
