Fall Family Portraits, Davis, CA

Posted on: November 20th, 2016

October is a great time for family portraits in California. Had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family of 4 during their visit to Davis, CA. We chose the UC Davis arboretum for its woodsy feel. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot.

Family Portraits by Davis CA photographer

Posted on: August 17th, 2014

Last week I held a small group class on family portrait photography and was able to photograph my friend McKinley’s family that evening. Summer nights in California are perfect for outdoor portraits, and these beautiful shots taken around sunset at the UC Davis arboretum are just what I am talking about….

Family Portraits by Davis, CA photographer

Posted on: December 14th, 2013

A fun family photo session in Vacaville, CA. We had to hike through the hills a bit to find the perfect spots, but it was worth the effort. Excited for this family to share these memories for years to come and to capture them in a setting that fits their style.

Extended Family Portraits, Sacramento CA Photographer

Posted on: June 8th, 2013

It was such a treat to work with Veronica Marshall‘s extended family for this portrait session. If you follow the blog, you may recognize Veronica’s name, as she is one of our talented makeup artists. She had been wanting to coordinate a family photo shoot for some time, and this week all the schedules finally came together.  It’s such a special thing to have the family all together in one place, and I look forward to sharing these images with them to have in their family for years to come.  Here are a few highlights from the evening in the park.

Mother Daughter Portrait Makeover Session – Davis, CA Photographer

Posted on: June 1st, 2013

2013-06-01_0001.jpg

Last weekend at the studio we got the team together for a unique mother and daughters photo shoot. The Miles family is getting ready to send their oldest daughter off to college, and this photo shoot was a great way to celebrate these close-knit ladies before she moves away. I have always felt that family portraits should not stop when the kids grow up, and loved working with these teenage daughters and their mom. Credit to Amanda Walker for the wonderful hair styling, Veronica Marshall for the stunning makeup, and to Jesse Larrosa for the one-of-a-kind custom dress making. Special thanks, also, to Quentin Carbajal for assisting me with this shoot.

Miller Family Portraits in Sacramento CA

Posted on: June 10th, 2012

I had the pleasure of working with the Miller’s in Sacramento, CA last month to shoot some family portraits in the park.  They are such a beautiful family, and you can tell from the way they interact how close they are and how supportive of each other.   I met them through their daughter, Emily, who was in my play 13 at the Woodland Opera House.  She is immensely talented and very hard working.  Her little sister, Rachel, looks to have the same great spirit and energy about her and I am excited to see them both go on to do many amazing things.  Congrats to parents Sonia and David for their beautiful family!

Young/McNicholas Extended Family Portraits

Posted on: November 1st, 2011
Too cute, right?  I had a great time shooting this extended family session in Woodland, CA this past weekend!  It had been 4 years since I had seen my friend Michelle (aside from facebook updates, which are nowhere near as good as real in-person updates).  I knew it was 4 years because that’s how old the little guy above is, and I had last seen him when he was just a couple of months old.  Michelle is genuine, compassionate, and very witty and she and her family are a joy to be around.  You can tell they all love spending time together, and love is abundant in this group.   I want to thank them for letting me spend the afternoon capturing these moments.
And one last thing:  I’d like to thank all the kids in this shoot for being so much fun!  They loved the camera and my camera loved them!
