A GROWING FAMILY //
I was so excited when Hannah contacted me to do their maternity pictures! Jordan is an old high school friend who I had not seen in several years. It was great to see the tight bond their beautiful family has. Pure love, joy and faith between them all!
This maternity session took place outdoors in the mid afternoon hours in Auburn, CA. The sun was shining and little Lilliana was just as cheerful as can be. Let me tell you, this little girls smile sure is contagious!!
I hope you enjoy a few images from the growing Villavicencio Family session!
Mike and I had the pleasure of photographing high school sweethearts, Heather & Mikes beautiful country inspired wedding in Sacramento, CA.
Their wedding took place at Crawford’s Barn towards the end of September.
The morning started off crisp and cool, the bride was worried about a down pour, but all of her supporting bridesmaids kept telling her it brought good luck on her wedding day!
There were few sprinkles leading up to the ceremony, but the second they said “I do!” the sun began shining! Perfect timing for us to capture family and posed pictures outside.
Let me tell you, not only was the venue gorgeous (and absolutely perfect for a country theme, hence it was literally inside a huge barn), but the decorations were perfect!
The bridesmaids and groomsmen were so easy going and all the guests made us feel so welcome!
Every detail of this wedding was planned by the bride and groom themselves, it was a day filled with laughter and love. The bride was truly glowing, you could feel the love between Mike & Heather throughout the entire day and night.
(For their wedding, Mike was able to capture some video footage. I will attach the link below!)
Congratulations Heather & Mike!!

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing the cutest little newborn baby boy.
This is baby Blane!!
When I was asked to photograph Blane I was so excited! I mean look at those lips, and those huge hands and feet! He was such a cuddle bug who really wanted us to leave him alone! He was so content cuddled up in his mama’s arms.
Once he was settled and asleep, we flew through the poses!
This session took place in the privacy of the clients own home, located in Grass Valley, CA — mid afternoon.
When I first met with Tish & John I could totally sense the love and compassion these two had for each other. The smiles were endless and the laid back personalities were so enjoyable! The way they were talking about their wedding and venue just sounded like an absolute fairy tale.
Tish and John planned a beautiful ranch style wedding at their own horse ranch in Auburn, CA. They expressed that they were more interested in the candid shots as opposed to the planned and posed pictures. When we arrived around 3 in the afternoon, they started with a brunch for their closest friends and family members. It was a catered personal brunch with tons of delicious home-style food.
Following the brunch was the ceremony. Tish made an entrance down the grand staircase and over to her handsome groom, all while having roughly 200 guests there to witness and support.
Don’t let the guest count fool you… This was one of the most intimate and personal weddings I have attended. The love for each other and everyone there was truly endless. I hope you enjoy some of the images from this beautiful ranch style wedding. (This was Bella Rosa’s first time making a video… It turned out beautiful. Videography is soon to come.)

Earlier last week I had the pleasure to meet and photograph this new little bundle of joy, Pyper! This was a touching story, I hope you enjoy a little insight :]
Pyper was brought into this world by her mother, Marcie, and her father, Omba. Marcie was due around the same time as Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton. Kim Kardashian had North very early, and Kate Middleton was a little over a week late. Marcie was ready to have Pyper, but Pyper was not ready quite yet!
Marcie went to the doctors for a follow up and to set a plan of action. The plan was to induce later that week if Pyper hadn’t made her grand entrance yet. Marcie lost her older sister several years ago. It has been a very emotional rollercoaster for the entire family. They are the most kind hearted and loving family with such a remarkable bond.
Marcie went into labor naturally and delivered Pyper on the same day that her sister passed many years before. It was the most beautiful story to hear because Pypers’ middle name was that of her passed auntie.
This photo shoot took place in Granite Bay, CA in the mid-morning hours.
