We are pleased to announce the return of our Daddy & Me portrait charity event. The background for the event will be a lovely light blue (the same as this year’s Mommy & Me portraits, which would make for an adorable side-by-side!). Feel free to bring children of any age, and why not add in a grandfather or great-grandfather for a generations portrait? We welcome multiple setups for one group; you just will make a separate donation to one of our favorite charities, Child Advocates of Placer County (CASA), for each grouping. As with our other charity events, you will receive a 5×7 print of the best image, chosen by us (those who opt to pre-order a digital image file at the event will choose your favorite image on the spot). The prints will be available for pickup Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25 from 12-1pm. If a digital file is purchased, those will be delivered via email by Thursday, June 9. We are excited to be bringing this event back and hope to see you all there!
We first met the Weygandt family when they were just newlyweds, being photographed with their adorable bulldog for their holiday cards. We have since had the pleasure of photographing them on multiple occasions as we watched their family grow from just their canine babies to their first-born child, Mr. H. We documented his arrival, starting with their maternity session and culminating with his 1-year portraits. He was such an easy newborn to photograph! As H grew, we learned more about his personality, always very much the observer and not quick to give up his adorable smile. When he did, however, he just melted our hearts! Thank you Weygandts for sharing your little man with us!
The Albu family was another of our Bebe clients that we were fortunate enough to document for their baby’s first year. Watching Miss S grow and change over her first year was fantastic, especially because she has so much personality! There’s nothing better than getting to know and grow with a family over their child’s first year of life. Meet the Albu family!
Photographing the wonderful Dawson family was a treat, in so many ways; so sweet to see three little girls doting on their baby brother; so breathtaking to watch two loving parents adore their 4th baby as if he was their first; so fun to see a family full of girls welcome a boy! I can’t say enough about how lovely, caring, and genuine the Dawson family is. They (and all of our wonderful clients!) are the reason why we love our job and count our blessings each and every day.
It’s that time of year again! We’re so excited to announce this year’s Mommy & Me Portraits for the Cure charity event. All of the event specifics are below, but we thought we’d share a few extra details here because we know there are always questions that come up. First thing to consider–clothing! We will be using the grey background shown below, so they sky is the limit as far as color options. Bright, dark, and deep colors look great on this color, but pastels can work, too. We would suggest avoiding white, as it can appear a bit stark against this darker background. Since this is a Mommy & Me event, the question often comes up about who can be a part of this portrait; this event is specific to “moms,” but grandmothers are welcome as well. The beautiful 5×7 print you will receive will be available for pickup at our studio on Friday, May 31 from 11am-1pm and Saturday, June 1 from 10am-noon only. There will also be an option to have your print(s) mailed to you for a small handling fee if you choose. That’s about it for the details, so we hope to see you on May 19 to help a cause near and dear to our hearts and receive a beautiful portrait at the same time!
We were thrilled to first meet the Beard family when they were expecting their first little miracle, baby J. We first started with their maternity session (some of you might recall momma in hubby’s firefighter turnouts!) and then documented J’s first year. We were thrilled when they announced that they were expecting baby #2, who we are debuting here. We love photographing and spending time with the Beard’s, who we now feel fortunate to call friends, not just clients. Baby P’s newborn session was no exception to the magic that always seem to happen during their sessions. They always come in with a few ideas that seem to translate into gorgeous! We love their willingness to experiment and go “outside the box” when it comes to their portrait sessions. We should mention that the darling image below of the brothers laying with dad’s gear happened spontaneously–when we mentioned to big brother that it was almost his turn, he went over and leaned down over the baby, thumb in mouth and all! Love him! Meet the Beard family, again!
We are back! Sorry we’ve been offline for a bit, updating some behind the scenes stuff on the blog. So happy to be back here sharing the wonderful people we are privileged to work with. The Cameto family holds a soft spot in our hearts, as we have been through the journey of two maternity sessions, their first baby’s first year and beyond, and now baby sister’s first year is underway. Since we did their first maternity session in the studio, we all decided to go for something different and venture outside. It was gorgeous and as always, the wardrobe was perfect! (way to go Sarah!) This session also doubled as young G’s three-year portraits. As all sessions seem to be with this family, it was simply magical. Fast forward a short bit and we were thrilled to meet the newest Cameto, Miss G! Her newborn session was not too long before Christmas, so it was only appropriate that a few “seasonal” shots were captured, which worked perfectly for their birth announcement/holiday card. It’s hard to believe that very soon we’ll be seeing baby G for her next Bebe session–can’t wait, as I’m sure it will be fantastic! Meet the lovely Cameto family–again:
People like the Perry family are the reason we have the best, most blessed job in the world. We met them several years ago to photograph their young family and have seen them several times since for various things. When I got the call from Lindsey in October about the family portrait session she wanted to set up, I knew this one would take the cake as far as experiences we are allowed to share with our clients. She knew by what date she would find out if she was expecting their second child and wanted to use their family portrait session to surprise her husband with the news. The wheels were set into motion for planning the exact timing, location and wardrobe for the big day. We did a few family portraits right off the bat and then suggested Ashley change into her second outfit. While Lindsey changed Ashley, our job was to distract Taylor and get him in the position we wanted him for the big reveal without him getting suspicious. We had his back to where mom and daughter would walk from. You can see exactly what happened next here. James and I were standing quite a bit further back, wiping tears from our own eyes as we watched what was unfolding. The best part is that big sis had no idea what her shirt said or what was going on; mom just told her it was her “Big Superstar” shirt (they didn’t want to share the news with her just yet since they had literally just found out she was expecting). They also didn’t want Ashley spreading the news just yet. So here we are, being given permission to spill the beans–the Perry’s are expecting Baby #2!! They’re just past the first trimester and wanted to share it with the world. Congratulations you guys and thanks so much for giving us the unmeasurable privilege of sharing in the very intimate moment with your family. We love you!
When the Krisa’s called and told us they had a new baby boy they wanted us to photograph, we were thrilled. We first met mom and little miss K several years ago at our very first Vintage Valentine event. Then when I changed to a new family doctor, Shannon happened to be the PA there. We were clearly destined to know each other somehow! So, you can see why we were so excited to learn we’d get to photograph the newest addition to their family, Mr. B. B was teeny-tiny when he was born, so mom wanted to wait until he had a little meat on him to do portraits. He was such a cute age, smiling and even sleeping for us! We’re excited that he’s part of our Bebe Collection and that we’ll see him again soon! Meet the Krisa family:
Happy New Year! We hope this finds you filled with plenty of good cheer, good company, and good food after the holidays. We were fortunate to have all of these things this year (maybe a little too much of the good food…) and look forward to what 2012 has in store. We’re hoping it brings more wonderful people into our lives like the Booth’s, featured here. We’ve combined the Booth maternity and newborn session here, which is fun to see the progression all at one time. Mama K was fun and ready for anything, and J, like any good new father-to-be, was willing to do whatever his beautiful bride wanted. 🙂 Their openness made for beautiful images for sure. Enter Baby B a bit later–what an absolute angel boy! He was super alert and content for such a new baby–we were fortunate to really see his big alert eyes; at this age most babies are either sleeping or crying…:-) J & K were beaming new parents, as well they should be, and we especially loved the image with Baby B nestled in on mom’s chest. Pure, sweet, priceless…
Can’t wait to see them again soon for B’s next session–we can only imagine how fun he’s going to be this time around! Meet the Booth family:
