Little Lady Rae


I am just smitten with this in-home newborn session of the Rucker family and their little lady Rae.  It was so much fun to watch our friend Allie go from newly pregnant to full-on mommy!  And what a beautiful mommy she is. (You can view her in-home maternity session here.) I’d really be lying if I said it didn’t make me think about how I’d be TOTALLY OKAY with birthing another baby girl just so I can decorate another nursery and add 67 more tiny bows to our collection in every hue and texture.  And goodness gracious, Reagan is a …

The Rowe Family


We were so excited when Sophia approached us for a family session. Her and her family are so cute and we had such a great time capturing their love and personality. Dan and Sophia have recently added two members to their family. Finley is four months old, and even more recently Nick, a Chinese exchange student in junior high. Nick blended in so well with the whole family. From lovingly holding Fin to making Elan laugh uncontrollably, it was easy to see that he loved being a big brother as much as the boys love having him as a big …

Allison Andres


When Allison came to us with a request for a branding shoot, we couldn’t say yes fast enough! Not only is Allison a dream to photograph with her killer style, she just so happens to be one of our favorite photographers. A little about this amazing lady, she’s had a heart for photography since she was 17 and has been pursuing her passion full time since 2009. You can check out her work here. Allison is a wife to her love, Fred, and a momma to a spitfire 2 year old girl. Allison was looking to have updated, high quality, …

Lauren and Jeff


We met up with Lauren and Jeff at their friend’s ranch just outside of Winters for this maternity session.  There were plenty of meadows, green trees and golden light on this property; kind of perfect for our late summer belly session. Later, we hopped in the car and drove down Pleasants Valley road to get some shots next to the creek.  As we were walking the property waiting for Lauren’s wardrobe change, I got to hear the story of how they met through a mutual friend.  Jeff was looking for a hot blonde and I’m going to venture to say thiiiiink he …

The Chappel Family


These sessions will never stop being so special to us. Getting to come into a family’s home, so soon after such a big life event, is nothing short of amazing. When we photographed the Chappel’s just 10 days after Maddex’s entrance into the family was no exception. Big brother Jacoby stole our hearts 30 seconds into the door. While Ashley was feeding the babe and Eric was answering the door, Jacoby snuck into the pantry and found some flour to play in. If you have a 2 year old, you know this is so classic. We couldn’t help but snap …

Back to School Session


When you have nieces as stunning as I do, you use them for models as often as you can!  Last week we did a relaxed back-to-school session in Winters and then went out for bread sticks and girl talk.  FUN FACTS:  all of my nieces’ names begin with A.  Ansley and Abigail are the oldest two and they are eleven months apart.  Ansley is a junior at Vacaville Christian and Abby is a junior (graduating a year early) at Vaca High. It’s been a joy to watch these two grow and see their different personalities blossom.  Blonde and brunette.  Volleyball …
