Families - Swanson Family

This past spring I donated a photo shoot to Shelter Cove's High School Group- Mexico Trip Auction (wow that was a mouthful!) I was excited to connect with the Swanson family who won our photo session. We spent an afternoon of capturing some sweet moments... Here are just a few of my favorites! Don't forget to check out our fun new video fusion slideshows at the end! I saved the best part for last!!!

I am in love... love... love... with this sweet girl and these photos! I just feel like it overflows with little girlieness (is that even a word?) There were so many photos where her little eyes just sparkled and her smile beamed that it was so hard to choose... but PLEASE click on the image below which will share more of this beautiful session with you! Including some adorable video clips with all sorts of cuteness!!! I promise this sweet one will put a smile on your face!!!

Josh & Tess + the kiddos

I got to meet this fun family back in February at the Almond Blossom Festival in Ripon... and I was so excited to get to hang out with them and have some fun! It was neat because the location we photographed is a place that they ride their bikes to as well... I like it all the more when there is special meaning in the places that I capture! It is fun help them not only remember just these photos... but help remind them of the special family adventures that they have had!

The next part is the most fun part... if you click on the image below you will get to see their video fusion slide show! It is where I take the still photographs and fuse them with video clips to tell the story of our adventure! It's one of the fun new things we are making available from our portrait session!

Families - The Martins

It has been a crazy (good) couple of weeks! But I wanted to make sure I took a few moments to share with you a few highlights from this family shoot... They were so fun and totally up for an adventure! We started out downtown and then headed out to a more rustic place to capture great family connections! Aren't they just gorgeous?!?!

I just love this moment for these two to enjoy a moment just for the two of them!

I loved capturing their beautiful family! Those little ones don't stay little for long and these moments... these precious family moments are the days that we will want to remember for years to come! I was so blessed to capture them!

Blane & Erin say "I Do!"

So many words run through my head as I reflect on Blane & Erin's beautiful day! It was filled with so much fun... laughter... romance... and family and friends CELEBRATING their I do's! We captured their day at the beautiful home of Erin's parents! I loved how their personality flowed through every detail... and I was especially in love with the rustic barn where they danced the night away.

The guys all having fun!

She was such a beautiful bride!

These moments are my favorite from their wedding... They seemed to loose themselves in this moment - a moment for them to simply enjoy each other.

Traditionally if it rains on your wedding day it is believed that you will have a very fortunate marriage! In the Italian Culture rain symbolizes abundance and good luck which will spill over onto the new family.
If it weren't for the rain - we never would have been able to capture this beautiful rainbow! And what a great story this will make for years to come!

We have been friends since high school when we played volleyball together... and now we are hanging out again with the kiddos at Mommy & Me Bootcamp .
