Backyard Adventures | Greater Sacramento Area

The goats are back!!!! 

While the goats were grazing on the job, it created the perfect moment for what I call a little backyard adventure. So, after a late nap for the babe, we had just enough light left in the day. We jumped in the truck and drove down the street to visit out little goat friends. Our adventure only lasted for about 20 minutes. But don't let the time full you! Life is grand in the smallest moments. Days later and we are still talking about the goats. Especially, the little black and white goat that Jack called, "Cow Goat". 

So, don't always wait for the big adventures! Find the small moments in your day, travel just down the street and have yourself a little BackYard adventure!!!!!

Mommies Hiring Mommies | Empower: Be a Badass Retreat

During our weekend we experienced eight brilliant speakers who are leaders in their industry. As the retreat wrapped up many of the Mommies Hiring Mommies community explored their true story, developed their why, and learned how to tie those revolutions into their own business to catapult greatness.

In-Home Newborn Session | Greater Sacramento Area

Dearest Sister, 

I am so excited to see you grow into this next chapter of your life. Motherhood will challenge you in ways you never could expect- it will bring you to your highest of highs and lowest of lows. This journey is full of joy, excitement and yet completely terrifying and frustrating- all in one crazy roller coaster of a ride. There will be times that you might feel lost and alone. Full of doubt and just plain scared. But fear not sister- for you are surrounded by family and friends to share this very experience with. On the flip side, you will be filled with so much love, joy, and pride that you are going to feel as if your heart could burst into a million pieces. In either the most joyous of moments or the very saddest parts- and everything in between. Reach out to those around you. Quiet those voices that might cause you to doubt. And just love on this little girl of yours. Be patient and hold her close. You have gracefully entered into this journey we call "motherhood" . I can't wait to see you both explore this world together. There will be twists, turns and mountains to climb, but always remember that the view along the way- is breathtaking. 

 

 

8th Grade Portraits | Downtown Sacramento

 

"And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears." - Mark Anthony

Where one waits with a bit of uncertainty. Somewhere between your childhood days, yet still years before your grown. Where the beauty of possibilities are endless.

Over the years this young lady's drive and passion for dance has yet to wither. Instead, with each practice, competition, and solo performed her passion continues to strengthen. Through the lens of my camera, I had the honor of capturing this moment in her life.

Midway into our lifestyle session, we switched focus from documenting her passion with dance, to grabbing a few portraits in her 8th grade graduation dress. I'm not going to lie, there might have been a tear or two swell up. Our first borns are growing up and they have now entered into the last remaining years of being children. 

This session is where an end of this chapter in her childhood will be forever documented. And a glimpse of the future that lies ahead can be seen in the photos captured below. Keep pursing your dreams, and never let the fire in your soul burn out.
