Nicholson Sisters

I missed posting the shots we took last year, so I’m including The Nicholson sisters’ current and past pictures together. Both sessions were so fun, I could’t just skip one!

These ladies are as beautiful to know as they are to see, and they just get better with time.

This year I was so happy to get a photo of the family together, a tricky thing to do with their busy schedules!

I’m looking forward to our next session!

A Big Move

As a parent, I find great joy in seeing my children succeed in their passions and talents. The McCoyville family knows that joy- their very talented son was accepted into Boston Ballet School. This meant they would be packing up their home in Oregon to make a new home on the other side of the country.

Before they left the West Coast, they visited family in California- where I got to take their photos.

Allen Family

This beautiful family of four brought me to a lovely ranch studio for their portraits.

I was glad we got this photo in, soon enough they won’t fit together!

20160819 183751 IMG 1103

The lighting was nice, and they are so fun to spend time with.

I hope I have an update with them again soon… when they are a family of FIVE 🙂

Mays Kids with Mom, Grandma, and Great Grandma

The Mays kids were excited to see their grandma and great-grandma, who were visiting California from the mid-west.

Grandma was pleased to meet her newest grand baby for the first time.

I have enjoyed watching these wonderful people grow through the years.

Christensen, McConville, McCoy

Rebecca organized family portraits while her brother and his family were visiting from out of state. I’m so glad she did! I had a great time being with each one of them. It was an honor to celebrate their family with them!

*I would love to take credit for the composition of this photo, but it was Kevin’s idea. I’m so glad for his artistic vision, because I love this picture!

Family Portraits: The Christensens

Family portraits are always so much fun for me. I love having the opportunity to photograph what makes each family unique.

Ian and Tessa are best friends. It’s so sweet to see a big brother that doesn’t just love his sister, but really enjoys being around her.

20131109 125113 IMG 1115

Tessa wanted to be sure we got a clear shot of her ‘flair’…

20131109 125421 IMG 1137

And check out Ian’s eyes! Whoa.

20131109 121729 IMG 1044

In case you are wondering who to congratulate on such cute kids…

20131109 124111 IMG 1096

Could I have a job more fun than this? I don’t think so.

Olds Family Portraits

I’ve had the privilege of photographing some very memorable events for the Olds family. Every time they call to schedule portraits, I’m beyond excited.

20121013 130256 IMG 0373

Recently, they added a new member to the family. At this photo session, we took a few pictures to document her 3 month birthday…

20121013 132425 IMG 0417  Version 2

She is such a sweet baby, and SO happy!

20121013 131947 IMG 0403

I really enjoy capturing milestones in every families lives. I’m so grateful this family has allowed me to be a part of so many special occasions!
