Brown Family Portraits

Meet  the Brown Family... Mom and Dad in the middle with their son, to the left, and his family and then their daughter, to the right, (AKA: Mrs. Hammonds the awesome computer teacher at my sons school) and her family.  I had been looking forward to this session with them for weeks now :o)  The Hammonds side of the family recently had a session with me and now her Mom wanted portraits at their ranch, which was so Cool!  They sell Peaches and Almonds, they have two beautiful horses and acres of beautiful land.  Ahhh, it was so  peaceful...
My assistant for the day was Sherie, the newest addition to my group of awesome assistants.  She and I started off our adventure  together in Sacramento and had a great time with the family up in Arbuckle :o)  I love road trips!
There were so many neat places to shoot on their property, take a look at how their session went and the awesome car...  
       
Thank you so much for having us come up to your beautiful home to photograph all of you!   We had a lot of fun.   I will be in touch soon!

Jon & Amy: The Full E-Session Story ;o)



Amy and Jon will be getting  married this summer and it was time for the E-Session, which we decided on meeting in Old Sac.  I love working with these two because they know what they want but they are not pushy and are game to try new things as well.  So our session was a lot of fun :o)  We were all over Old Sac from brick walls, to banks and candy stores and then on to bathrooms and railroad tracks!  I love E-Sessions because I really get to know the couple on a personal level and it makes the wedding so much more fun for us and for the couple.  Take a look at these two love birds...



 


It was so hard to choose my favorites but I hope you love them Jon & Amy ;o)  Talk to you soon.
