It’s my favorite time of year again–that time when Santa visits the Enchanted Images studio!! Once again we are partnering with Northern California Dance Conservatory in hosting visits and portraits with Santa. Not only will you receive a beautiful portrait of your child with Santa, you will also be helping a child in need this Christmas with your donation to our local Toys 4 Tots organization. No appointment is necessary for this event. For a minimum $20 value new toy donation, you will receive a 5×7 portrait. Your prints will be ready for pickup at our studio on Friday, December 19 and Saturday, December 20 between 11am-1pm. If you are unable to pick up your prints at those times, you may choose to have them mailed to you on the event registration form. Digital files purchased will be emailed by Wednesday, December 10. The studio will be closed from Dec. 21-Jan.2, so please be sure to arrange to get your prints on time. To help make the event run as smoothly as possible, we have created an online registration form that you may fill out prior to coming to the event; just don’t forget to print it and bring it! :-). Click HERE to complete your online registration and for further details regarding print and digital add-ons. Can’t wait to witness the wonder of Christmas in your children’s smiles once again!!
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.
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:
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:
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…):
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!
