In-Home Newborn Session | Greater Sacramento Area

Part 1: October babies are pretty awesome!!! So awesome that baby brother gets to share his birthday month with his older siblings. He was just a bundle of such sweet calmness during the whole session. Which was a perfect blend to offset the energy of the twins. The newborn photo shoot landed on their birthday- so, naturally, they were a bit excited. There is something about the third kid that just throws your world into a tailspin. But don't worry Mama, you will find your footing sooner than you realize. All the pieces will fall into place; so sit back and enjoy the ride. Take a deep breath and embrace this phase in life. This is one lucky little guy. Mom and Dad are guys are amazing parents!

I can't wait to see the amazing bond that will form between his big brother and sister. He really has the best of both worlds. And no matter how close the twins are with one another; they will each hold a hand out and welcome baby brother into their world. I know it is not always easy, especially juggling the three kid routine. But remember to stop running around for just a moment and quietly sit back. Don't forget to see all the wondrous detail of our everyday moments. It really is quite amazing!

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.
