Happy 4th of July! (sorry it’s a bit late–we were in San Diego visiting family for the past week+). For those of you who have followed our blog for a period of time will recognize this family–we’ve been photographing them for 4 years now–and it never gets old! We’ve ventured from Napa to Tahoe with this family, and for their last family session decided to stay in our neck of the woods. This family session also doubled as Miss V’s last Bebe session, and she was in fine form! On a side note, in case you’re ever wondering how to do light-colored clothing well for a family session, it doesn’t get any better than this! We were a bit nervous about the 4 kids near water in their nice clothes, but somehow we all managed to keep them at bay with just throwing rocks into the water. Thanks again (and again!) to the Ferrell family for entrusting us to capture these precious moments in your family!
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:
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:
When we first met with Leah, she already had very specific ideas for the session she wanted to do with her 2 darling daughters, including having their dresses all ready to go! (thanks to the Silver Spoon children’s boutique in Roseville) She knew she wanted to be in a natural, field-like setting with her girls, and we knew just where to go. We were in a race against time before big sister’s 2 front teeth would fall out…as of today, she’s toothless according to mom! It was so neat to see the girls’ sweet interactions with mom, and they’ll forever have these images to remind them of this special, innocent time in their lives. We want to thank all three of the lovely Robinson ladies for their willingness to climb through pokey weeds with bare legs, all in an effort to get the perfect shot!
When we met the Garcia family we knew it would be a fun session because they were so excited about doing it. Jennifer is a photo bug herself so collaborating on their family session was a treat for all of us. They knew they wanted to be out in nature somewhere, so we headed over to one of our favorite spots in Roseville for their session. Brothers G & G (G squared, maybe??) were super agreeable and didn’t seem to mind standing barefoot in the pokey dry weeds….kids are such troopers! Something I will never forget is that they were leaving the next morning for a big vacation, and Jennifer was so organized with clothing for the session and didn’t seemed stressed at all; not sure I would have been, but glad they were! Meet the Garcia family:
Today our “baby” turns 5. It’s hard not to get sappy and sentimental at times like this. It’s so cliche to say how time flies and in the blink of an eye babies turn into young ladies, but it’s SO true! Five years ago today we had no idea who this baby girl would become; what her personality would be like, who she would resemble, and the role she would play in our family. Well, we have learned much about her in five years. Our Teagan is so full of life, energy, humor, wit and compassion. She is the funniest kid I’ve ever met, can be so stubborn, but the next minute melts your heart with love. We keep asking her why she’s growing up so fast, and her reply is always the same: “Because I want to grow up.” Slow down, sweet Teagan. Enjoy each day (and she does!).
Here is her actual birth announcement we sent out; the photograph was taken when she was 3 weeks old. The images below are very recent. In fact, the ones outside were taken just a couple of days ago. She was modeling some dresses for the Silver Spoon, so the session also became her five-year portrait session. She did a great job but was much more concerned about the little ladybug she found and was holding in her hands most of the time we were out. The last couple in the hat were some fun outtakes from the mommy & me promo session the girls and I did last month. As much as I love every one of these images of her for different reasons, James and I both agree that the last one pretty much sums up our little girl. Happy Birthday Teagan!
Meet Haley, Granite Bay High 2010. I’ll never forget Haley’s senior portrait consultation. As I recall, she and her mom showed up well, empty handed. We always ask for a variety of clothes for this consultation and we have seen everything from duffle bags, to clothing racks, even grocery bags full of clothing…but nothing? So we spent the time chatting about different looks, and what Haley had in mind for her senior portraits…and laughed a lot.
p.s. Haley is a hoot.
So is her mom.
Put them in a room together and the place cracks up.
We got the details nailed down and off they went. About an hour later Haley’s mom called just to say she was all over it and was totally going shopping for some new duds. “We’re excited and we will definitely be ready!”
The day of the session, Haley arrived with all kinds of cool stuff as promised, and those red shoes… We had a great time out and about and Haley looked wonderful. Here are some of my faves.
Meet Cat, Bella Vista class of 2010. Cat arrived to her consultation just about every cool outfit available. Boots, scarves, necklaces, dresses and oh yeah…a black guitar. So again, off to the woods we went to chase some light. It was a perfect day and as you can see, Cat did great. About halfway through the session, she suggested climbing a tree for a few shots. I wasn’t overly eager for this as my last tree experience ended with me falling out of it and a nasty scrape on my knee. (I was trying to show a senior how to get up in it) Cat seemed pretty confident in her climbing skills so we went for it. Glad we did as they were some of my favorite images of the day. Thanks Cat for all your efforts!
