I love nothing more then capturing authentic moments between family members. Love that is shared between siblings, or the quiet moment between mother and child or the playfulness of fathers and their children. Loved creating these images in the comfort of their home nestled in Nevada City, California.
Fall family sessions are so much fun. Love watching sweet families such as this one grow year by year. Repeat clients are something truly special and I feel so grateful to be apart of their lives in this way. These were shot walking the streets of downtown Nevada city on a beautiful fall evening.
What an incredible evening spent with the sweetest family of five. Love creating images in beautiful places that my clients get to cherish for the rest of their lives! Being based in the Sierra Nevada Mountains I have a plethora of local places that are gorgeous to shoot at. This place holds a very special place in my heart.
Here a few from Robin Steffensen October blogger session. Love creating content for her! We always have such a great time! We shot in downtown historic Grass Valley which provides so many great backdrops for her fun outfits. She added on hair and makeup to her monthly session which allow me to create not only beautiful images but gorgeous textured hair and soft natural makeup.
I love love so much. And these two are no exception to that. I have had the honor of photographing them before. It’s such a privilege to be apart of someones life in such an intimate way throughout the years. What a sweet session this was taken up in Truckee, California overlooking Donner Lake.
There is no better place to capture the love of your family in an intimate place such as the river. Being in nature is so inspiring and provides the best pace for sweet families to feel them selves and be photographed. Loved this evening spent with these beautiful kind people!
There is nothing I love more then being able to create valuable content for business owners to use to boost their engagement on social media. Web presence is such an important part to owning a business these days. Images will tell your story and draw people in! Here are a few that we created for Dahliana’s October social media session.
I love this sweet family! They have been long time clients of mine that I have been privileged to watch their family grow! Really enjoyed capturing them together down at Bridgeport of South Yuba River State Park. And I was over joyed when Becca suggested she get into the water at the end! Best evening ever!
Food imagery should be buttery and inviting. Love images that show motion where you can envision yourself eating at the very table seen and even almost taste the flavors.
Creative director Ayla Corrigan chose tones that gave warmth.
Fall is coming and I couldn’t be more pleased. There is a crisp in the air these days which has a distinct difference to the hot dry air of the summer. Crispy leaves dried from the summer heat. Photographing Ella in Nevada City was so much fun. Walking the historic streets on downtown always finding new nooks and hidden places to shoot.
Lovely day shooting the sweetest mama and her eight month old baby girl. We spend the afternoon walking around the Marina District finding sweet spaces to capture their special love.
Loved capturing Robin Steffensen running through San Francisco. Fashion blogger Robin, writes of special getaways and cute outfits along with motherhood. When she contacted me to create looks for her blog I was so excited! She put together several outfits for each location and we drove all over the beautiful city. We started in the Sunset district and hiked up to a lookout point. We then headed to the Financial district and ended in the mission. It was so much fun capturing her personality all throughout the city!
Love the quietness of this photoshoot. Dark and moody with a sense of peace. Loved starting with hair and makeup then transitionaing into the photo session taking images. The inspiration for the hair style was raw and textured so adding the florals was a must. When creating the perfect textured updo it is always important to add the perfect amount of hair spray and texture spray and massage with the hands. Floral placement is important to keeping the style looking fresh and organic and undone. The makeup was created to have the same effect. Not overly done, soft and natural.
The backdrop was created to give depth and moodiness bring attention to the model.
Loved photographing this giant beautiful family. It is always so special to photograph large families that have children and grandchildren. This was no exception. These images were taken in the Sierra Nevada mountains up highway 20. As we approached sunset, one of the parents pulled out sever black balloons to do a gender reveal! It was so special to capture everyones reaction!
What a sweet birthday this was! I have photographed Stella and her family several times over the last year so being asked to photograph her 1st birthday celebration was so special. The party was held at a private residence situated at the top of a hill overlooking the Sierra Nevadas. Loved the details and the accents of gold and soft pinks. No 1st birthday is complete without a cake smash! Loved this sweet day!
What a special weekend this was, filled with so much love and festivities. The first event was a moonlight cocktail party on Mishaum Point which is an hour and a half south east of Boston. The point was so lush and had loads of overgrown trails. The 350 year old history left everyone fascinated and leaving us sad to leave.
It was lush all the way up to the ocean side. Garden roses brambles perfectly placed naturally along the beach. Trails guiding you to the water.
The coastal homes on Mishuam Point were beyond charming. Each unique in their own way passed down from generation to generation. Some renovated keeping their classic east coast enhancement.
The morning of the rehearsal dinner clam bake, beloved family and friends took a plunge into the warm Atlantic Sea. Overcast and a downpour was not going to stop a soul.
The clambake took place on the beach and was a sight to see. Table full of fresh clams, oysters and crab. A bib on each seat to be used for each guest to protect their clothing from the delicious meal. Laughter was heard all night long and trivia night ended the lovely evening.
Lindsey was the most gorgeous bride. She walked down the isle with elegance and grace and a happy tearful eye. What an incredible weekend spent with special people!
There are times that creating creative content for myself is necessary. Coming up with a concept and turning into tangible images for the pleasure of just creating is an important thing as a creative. Loved photographing Branndolynn at the beautiful Yuba River State Park. You can find this swimming hole about fifteen minutes from downtown Nevada City. Enjoy the colors of the water and the movement within her dress.
Branding content for Three Forks Bakery was so much fun to create. Love creating beautiful imagery for local Nevada County businesses. Nestled in the Sierra foothills, this bakery has great ambiance and sells locally sourced baked goods and fresh lunch and dinner. Everything is always fresh and beautifully presented. Love eating at Three Forks whether its for a morning meeting with a client, lunch with a friend or a dinner out with my husband.
