Meet the Medeiros family; we had the pleasure of photographing them in Old Sacramento and had such a great time exploring nooks and crannies around the town with the girls. They were so much fun and up for nearly anything (especially Miss R, as we’re pretty sure she had a crush on James :-). Since their session we’ve gotten to know this family even better and feel so blessed to have met them–so genuine and loving!
Each year it breaks our hearts to tell someone that we can’t fit them in for a family portrait session in time for the holidays, so this year we decided to give an early reminder to anyone thinking about scheduling family portraits between now and holiday-time. In other words, do it now! :-). We are already scheduling sessions into November, but it’s definitely not too late. Please give us a call or shoot us an email if you would like to schedule your session or your portrait design consultation (for new clients). The best time for a family portrait is NOW. We are so often reminded of how precious (and often short) these moments of life can be, and what better way to preserve them with beautiful, timeless portraits?
Just over a week ago we had the great privilege of photographing Kaitlyn & Ian’s wedding at the Firehouse in Old Sacramento. Every wedding we photograph is so special, for so many reasons, and this was no different. The first time we photographed Kaitlyn she was not quite 14; we met her family and did their first session with us when their twins (now 8) were 8 weeks old. Over the past 8 years we have photographed the Gilliland’s countless times (there are 5 kiddos, Kaitlyn the oldest), including Kaitlyn’s senior portraits we did at a destination session in San Diego a few years ago. Not only has the Gilliland family been a long-time client, they have also become dear friends over these past 8 years. So, you can imagine the myriad of emotions we felt when photographing this wedding! James and I both have quite a difficult time holding ourselves together at any wedding, but during this one, we shed tears more than once. It’s hard to describe the emotions when as photographers, we’re not only entrusted to document this momentous day, but the family also includes us in the festivities as we are guests (sorry Steph–Kaitlyn’s mom–for not putting down our cameras and dancing, but I’m sure you’ll forgive us! :-).
Kaitlyn & Ian–thank you both for putting your trust in us and giving us so much time with you both on your wedding day, even when I’m sure you would have rather been enjoying your party. The images with the bridge in the background were toward the end of their reception, when most people would have said “the heck with photos, let’s just enjoy this party!” Totally worth the time (and the walk through Old Sac!). I could write all day about how special this young couple and their family are to us, but I’m sure everyone would rather just get on to looking at this sneak peek from their wedding day. Enjoy!
We’ve been photographing the Ferrell family long enough to know that it’s always going to be a fashion treat whenever we see them, and their last family session was no exception! The session was also for Miss V’s 2-year portraits, so she got a special wardrobe change. We couldn’t help but grab a few of big sis while she was changing, and those turned out to be some of our favorites from the day. The boys were just so happy to get a chance to run around that they had no time to help James with his “light tests”, wink, wink…:-). We are so honored to have become the Ferrell’s family photographer, and each time we’re with them we’re reminded of the most important part of what we do–the wonderful people we get to know!
We are so excited to announce our relationship with the new owner of SWAK clothing boutique at the Fountains in Roseville! Jodi, the new owner, is wonderful and so on fire to bring beautiful and unique fashion & accessories to women of all ages. If you haven’t been to SWAK or it’s been a while, it’s definitely worth a visit. Soon you will also be able to see some of our images on display there (featuring SWAK clothing, of course!). When you shop at SWAK, you can also earn portrait session credit with us (see below; these cards are available in the store). The most exciting part of our new relationship–we are now sending SWAK gift certificates to you wonderful people that refer new clients to us!!
Also, be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, June 28. SWAK will be hosting a re-grand opening party, featuring appetizers from various restaurants in the Fountains, beverages, giveaways, AND….Enchanted Images will be there offering fun, fashionable new profile photos for all of your social networking needs! Many of you have been asking when we would be doing another Ladies’ Night Out, and this is it! There will also be makeup artists on hand for touch-ups to get you camera-ready. The cost, you ask? It’s absolutely free! The party will start at 7pm, but SWAK VIP’s only will have exclusive entrance from 7:00-8:30pm. After that, it’s open to the public. All you have to do to become a SWAK VIP is go visit the store before the 28th and join their VIP list (no cost, no catch–I promise). If you have previously been a SWAK VIP, be sure to go in and make sure you’re on the new list, since ownership has changed. Can’t wait to see you there!
We thought that as the mercury rises it would help us all cool off to see images from a much cooler time of year, when sweaters and jeans are in order! (ahhh…we can always dream…Sacramento folks, just remember how great the Fall is here when the temperature rises to 107 this weekend!!). Just call this “throwback Tuesday!”
This session with the Zander family was the conclusion of their second Bebe Collection, this time with Miss C. We went to one of our favorite nature locations, which I love because it looks different all throughout the year, depending on the season. Mom (Heather) always does such a great job bringing a variety of hats and hair accessories, and even one for herself this time! It has been such a treat watching this family grow, all the way from their first maternity session. Did I mention that Dr. Zander is also our dentist? Not only are we fortunate for them to share their beautiful family with us, but he also keeps mine and James’ teeth healthy! 🙂 Meet the Zander family, again:
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 knew we were in for a treat with this lovely family the moment we met with T (aka session stylist!). She was so excited about capturing this time in their life and the adorable stage little T was in (almost a year old and about to walk). Often it’s hard enough to figure out outfits for a family session, and T spoiled us with two amazing sets of clothes for them! Her clothing choices are the epitome of how to coordinate but not match outfits. In addition to the great clothes, little T was in the BEST mood and made the session so much fun. Meet the Yanchuk family:
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 met the lovely Dirven family at our very first Vintage Valentine event in 2010. We have seen them every year since–lucky us! We feel especially fortunate to get to photograph them, as they travel from over 2 1/2 hours away to come here! I always know that they will show up with great wardrobe, as mom likes to show their style and personalities off in the portraits. We actually made these portraits at the end of last summer (yep, we’re that behind on blogging!!) on a beautiful August day. Hard to believe in just a few short months they’ll be back for their next family portrait! It’s been such a treat getting to watch these kiddos grow and change, but one thing has stayed the same–their sweet relationship with each other.
