We met the Swint family after they placed the winning bid on a donation we made at a charity auction.  We were thrilled they were the winners, as they were such a fun family to work with.  They knew they wanted their portraits to be made in natural setting, which was perfect for their little explorers.  I think after the first few minutes, the boys completely forgot we were actually there to take photographs; they were too busy finding what was around the next corner to focus much on that!  We truly enjoyed getting to know the Swints and are again reminded how lucky we are to do what we do.  Meet the Swint family:

Meet V…he’s as sweet as his hair is red!  We’ve been photographing the Posey family since big sister was this age, and then again when big brother T came along.  It’s so fun getting to see 3 children from one family at exactly the same age, because the resemblance is uncanny in some ways (not the red hair, though!  V is unique in that regard!).  The Posey’s are one of those families that no matter how much time passes since we’ve seen them, we seem to pick up right where we left off.  It’s been such a treat to be able to watch their 3 kids grow and change over the years, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for all of them!

How quickly Miss S’s first year seemed to go by!  By her one-year session with us, she had turned into quite the little lady.  As usual, mom brought a dizzying assortment of amazing wardrobe options and hair accessories.  Miss S often had her own ideas about where the hair accessories should be (hint:  it was not usually on her head!).  Let me put it this way–S’s personality is even larger than her wardrobe! 🙂  We had so much fun with her, all of her outfits, and of course, mom.  I’m sure these latest images will melt your heart as much as she did ours.  Thanks to S’s mommy for sharing her first year with us!

We started documenting Miss K when she was still in mama’s tummy…fast-forward to her second Bebe session (my favorite age!!).  Kudos to mom for all of the darling outfits and hair accessories, but K would have been adorable regardless; her million different expressions were accessory enough! 🙂  While K was awesome in the studio, it was a pretty cold & windy day outside, and she was pretty much over it by the time we ventured outdoors.  We have to give a big thank you to K’s grandpa for saving the day outside and getting those last few amazing expressions!  Meet Miss K (again…):

If you visit our blog regularly, you’ll recall a sneak peek of Thomas & Kasie’s gorgeous wedding a while back.  There were just too many fantastic images from the day not to share more.  They were married at Serrano Country Club in El Dorado Hills, and it was certainly a day to remember!  Everything about this day was perfect–even the clouds!  A few more images to celebrate the new Mr. & Mrs. Eaton:

First off, our apologies for the lack of updates lately–we spent the last week in San Diego with James’ entire family, celebrating his grandmother’s 90th birthday and just generally having fun.  Stay tuned for images from that, as well as more updates about what else has been taking up a good deal of our time lately–moving into the new Enchanted studio (again, stay tuned for images!).

Now that I have that off my chest, on to more important things, like the lovely Perdue family.  We knew photographing this family would be a fun challenge, as they described wanting anything but “typical.”  They showed up fabulously frocked and up for anything; when I say anything, I mean anything.  Their session was on one of the windiest days in recent memory.  Thankfully a little wind and chill didn’t intimidate them!  We ended up down by the train tracks, and found a spot under the bridge that we first went to in an effort to block the wind, but found out it had more merit than just blocking the wind.  Just for fun at the end, we went further down the tracks.  Literally a minute or two after telling them that trains never come by when we’re down there, lo and behold, a train began approaching.  Jackpot!  Our favorite images (and theirs) of the day came as a result of this happy accident.  I should also mention, even though obvious through the images, that miss S was quite the show-stopper.  Thanks to the Perdue family for sticking with us through the cold and wind–it was worth it!  In fact, we loved one of their images so much that it is hanging in the gallery of our new studio…

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!

We first met the Armijo’s last summer thanks to some of our other clients.  The Armijo’s opened up the first Dailey Method studio in our area, and we are so thrilled for lots of reasons!  We first found out about them because of the rave reviews we heard about this unique exercise studio, and then we were so excited when they asked us to do some of the photography for their studio, and then, their own family.  We have been loyal to the Dailey Method every since (minus a couple of interruptions due to surgery and broken wrists for me–Stef…).  We were thrilled when Adam & Stacey asked us to photograph their family at Folsom Lake, where they like to spend time as a family.  Little Mr. R. was so cute and we loved watching him enjoy his surroundings.  We have been fortunate to get to know this family in several settings, and are proud to introduce them here.  Meet the Armijo family:

We met the Wu family a while back after they placed the winning bid on a session we donated to the St. Alban’s annual auction.  We were so glad they did because they were so fun to work with!  We kind of felt bad for big brother (as we often do) because Miss A had such amazing outfits and kind of stole the show.  It was great, though, that we got to capture that awesome empty space where a tooth once was on big brother.  Meet the captivating Wu family:

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:
