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.
Winter has arrived.. FINALLY! Just a week ago it was daffodils were popping up and spring looked like it showed up. Photographed Blogger Mama Blake and her son today in the snow in Nevada City California. Loved these vibrant colors in the gorgeous snow. I have Social Media Content packages specifically designed for bloggers! Love creating these sessions that make such a big impact on your website or social media outlets. The importance of beautiful imagery on your social media accounts is vital in attracting an audience. These days, if your images don't stand out your blog or social media won't. Let me know if you are interested in Social Media Content Packages! Would love to share more details to you!
It was a crisp bright sunny day when we headed out to capture these images for Hex the Store. This session was for their social media monthly package. We went for a all black attire to make these images sharp and stand out. We also chose black attire from the store to bring detail to accessories. Our model wore Purpose Jewelry beautifully. What an incredible hand made jewelry business that stands for quality. Always love walking downtown Grass Valley to to find hidden photography gems! Enjoy!
This head shot session was taken at the St. Josephs Cultural Center in Grass Valley, California. It was a very fun session where I was able to capture her personality. Love the black and white images. I always like to include a few more artistic shots after shooting the more typical head shots. This allows for some fun and personality to shine through. I have found it fun giving my clients the ability to obtain images that are not as basic but images that have more personality. We shoot images against a solid white wall for her Linkdin account and then a few sitting down in various areas with different back grounds that included natural elements like foliage and other organic textures. Love creating images like these! My clients reactions when they achieve their photography images from their photography session are priceless. Nevada County has so many beautiful nooks and crannies that are so fun to shoot!
When Lindsey and Max asked me to capture their engagement session I was thrilled! Lindsey spoke of wanting moody artsy images captured in black and white. Her family had just purchased an old home in Northern California settled in the foothills. Her family had plans to renovate the old home but hadn't began the renovation so we figured it would be a great location. It held sentimental value along with providing a really great mood setting. Nevada City holds a special place in my heart and being able to capture their 1950's home before the transformation happened felt really nice. Enjoy these moody images on this moody rainy day.
Loved this walk through historic Nevada City. We shot while walking past The Miners Foundry then continued on to Broad Street. We passed the historic old theater called The Nevada Theater. Loved how these black and white images turned out that were taken by the Nevada City Court House . This was such a sweet session.
