It’s always a bittersweet thing when one of our Bebe Collection members turns one. We grow to know and love these families over baby’s first year and know we get to see them every few months. Then the baby turns one, and we know we won’t see them every few months anymore….:-( Miss A is such a sweet girl and made every session even more fun than the last. Her one-year session turned out to be quite a blustery day, but it didn’t seem to phase her. We want to thank Briana & James for entrusting A’s precious first year portraits to us–you guys are the best!
It’s that time of year again! We’re excited to announce our 3rd annual Mommy & Me Portraits for the Cure event, where we raise money to support breast cancer research. This year we’re keeping it local and donating the proceeds to the Placer Breast Cancer Endowment. As usual, the event will be held at The Silver Spoon children’s boutique. No appointments are needed, so just come in while we’re there! The portraits will be made like those you see here, so dark colors will photograph the best. We want to say a special “thank you” to the three lovely women and their kids who are featured here and have each been affected by breast cancer in different ways. You are all strong, courageous, and deserve to be celebrated!
We thoroughly enjoyed the Speaking family for many reasons, one of which included their great wardrobe! When we saw little Miss A’s adorable pink outfit, we knew she’s be stealing the show. That is until, we saw mom’s shoes (and dress, and hair, and make-up)! Dad wasn’t too shabby either (don’t want to make him feel left out…:-). A was such a happy, sparkly-eyed little girl, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with this session and getting to know this lovely family. Meet the Speaking’s:
When Miss S and her mom showed up for their last session, we were overwhelmed with the amount of amazing clothing options we had to choose from. We knew we wanted to capture some of the beautiful fall leaves, but the weather was not on our side–the ground was completely soaked, and there was no way we were going to sit her down in her gorgeous silk dress–so we decided to haul a chair outside and improvise! It started raining moments after we got what we wanted, so we ventured in to the much warmer (and drier!) studio to finish off her session. Even though S had an incredible wardrobe for such a little peanut, I think my favorite image from the entire session is this first one, where she’s wearing nothing but her headband. Just goes to show a little accessory can go a long way! Meet Miss S (again….):
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Here are a few highlights from our recent Vintage Valentine event. Thanks again to all who came!
First off, sorry for the lack of posting–we’ve been knee deep in Vintage Valentine sessions! Thanks for continuing to check back…
You might recall a recent maternity post from the Ferrell family in Lake Tahoe. Well, this sweet baby girl arrived just a few weeks later. Meet baby V…she is baby #4 for the Ferrell family and just as sweet as can be. It’s so fun to meet a new sibling and see how she resembles (or not) the other kids. In this family there is no mistaking the kids are siblings. Looking forward to her next session in a few months…stay tuned!
We first met the Pope’s during an extended family session in Napa, when they were just newly expecting. They live on the other side of the country, so we were thrilled to get the call that they would be visiting family here in town and wanted to bring their sweet baby girl in for a session. Miss V was the perfect little subject and could not have been any cuter. When we then got the news that they will soon be moving to California, we were even more excited (hoping that this is not the last time we are fortunate enough to photograph this lovely family…:-). Wishing you a very smooth and uneventful move!
A few weeks ago we held our 2nd annual Santa Portrait Charity Event at the Silver Spoon children’s boutique in an effort to collect Toys 4 Tots. We had an amazing response and collected over 200 toys! We are so appreciative of everyone who participated in this event, as well as the Silver Spoon for providing the perfect location and the most amazing Santa. There are far too many portraits to include in a blog post, so this is really just a teaser (and if case you weren’t aware, the first darling little girls are ours…:-). To see all 188 portraits visit our Facebook page here. Enjoy and Merry Christmas–Ho! Ho! Ho!
Meet the Diaz family, who brought their baby blessing, J, to us to capture his sweet newborn stage. We’re so excited we get to see this family two more times during J’s first year, as they are another one of our Bebe Collection members. I have to admit, our Bebe members have an extra special place in my heart, as I get so attached to these families and watching their little ones grow! I’m always so sad after the 1-year session, because that means we most likely we see them every few months! We’re thrilled to have met the Diaz family and capture baby J’s first year (and big brother’s affection for his baby bro!).
So, I’m sure you have noticed, but our blog-speed hasn’t been stellar lately–our apologies to you wonderful people who visit it regularly! We’re right in the thick of our busiest time of year, not aided by the fact that James was in New Orleans teaching all last week. Thus, the lagging blog posts. Thanks to all of our patient peeps for who’ve been waiting!
Now that I have that off my chest, I would like you to meet the lovely Doss family (this is how behind we are….these images are from their first session a few months ago and they were just here today to see their next set of Bebe images!). Miss A was a little older than most of our babies at her first Bebe session, but we didn’t mind one little bit. She was super happy and full of smiles. I do believe she’s a ballerina in training (see her perfectly pointed toe in the 2nd to last image). This family was so easy and fun to work with, and we can’t wait for you to see her next set of images (you’ll have to wait a while, clearly…:-).
