This sweet family is a "Dewey Family", from my sons school.  In 2009 this family bid on and won a package from the school Crab Feed ~Yahoo! So we are finally getting together so they can cash it in... before it starts to decompose!  Lol Krysta, I had to say it! 
They wanted to do an outdoor session so we met at a park in the evening as the sun was setting... I LOVE FALL! it was really pretty outside :o)  Krysta had everyone dressed perfectly for their session.  We got a lot of cute shots around the park of the family together and some individual shots of the kids too.  Take a look at how cute they are...

I love this one!

And I love this one!!  Which one is your favorite??

Just for fun I turned the kids in to Comic Book characters!

 Great Family + Great Time = Great Portraits :o)   Thanks Murphy Family!  I will be in touch soon.  Please share these with your Twitter and Facebook Fans by clicking on the icons below.

Havanese Doggies and their Human Valerie!

Animals are the love in lots of peoples lives; either they love the companionship or the security they provide. Some people love them because they can’t have or don’t want children. Whatever the reason, most people love having pets!

I am the Human of a Havanese Dog named Hurley and my friend Valerie is the Human of the two Havanese girls in these photos, Cali (the cream colored one) & Nora (the black one) ;o) One of the best parts about having one of these dogs for our family is that they are hypo-allergenic and they do not shed! My husband hates pet hair and my youngest son is allergic to pet hair so Havanese dogs are one of the very few options out there as far as owning a dog that would first of all be allowed in our house and that our son wouldn't be allergic to :o)

It’s lots of fun photographing dogs or any kind of animal or pet for that matter. They are just like children in so many ways, except they usually don’t ever cry! LOL! Check out these two sisters and their adorable little personalities...

Thank you Valerie for having me photograph the girls!  To share these with your Twitter and Facebook friends, click on the icons below.  "Sharing is Caring"


San Fransisco Family Portraits for Vanessa

Over the weekend my family and I took a road trip to San Fransisco  to meet up with my clients for their beach  and Golden Gate Bridge Photo Session :o)  We love road trips!!  I met Vanessa through my client Heather, thank you for the referral Heather, it is the greatest form of flattery ^_~
We all met first for ice cream  so that little Lariah could warm up to me before we asked her to "perform" for me on the beach.  Great ice cream place called "Sweet Joe's" not too far from the beach if you are ever looking for one.
Take a look at this adorable little girl, you can tell how much she loved the beach and playing with her Mommy and Daddy along the waters edge...

They both agreed to do a "family portrait" for Lariah, even though they are not together anymore.  For Lariah, these Photos will be priceless, as they depict a sense of parental unity with what is most important, not their differences or reasons for separation but their individual love for Lariah that gives them the ability to put all else aside for her, even if it's just for a moment...

Awesome Photo Shoot guys!  We had so much fun with you and really enjoyed the trip to SF.  Vanessa said that Lariah really enjoyed it and was crying for water on the way home!  We hope you all had a wonderful time :o)  I will be in touch with you soon.

Phoebe's Cheering for the Vikings!

Sunday morning we met at the Oakmont High School, which by the way has an Awesome Football Arena, to photograph Phoebe in her Cheer gear.  I have known Phoebe for a couple years now.  She goes to school with my boys and she is known for being outgoing and full of energy :o)  This sport, yes I said sport, is perfect for her and she is really good!  I couldnt believe the round offs and cartwheels she could land.  She has some serious leg muscles. Take a look at this girl's moves...

Thank you for having me photograph her ~ I had a great time with you!  Please Share this blog post with your Facebook friends by clicking on the Facebook icon below.

Bennett Family Portraits ~Carmichael, CA.

This adorable family we have known for several years... Well, at least the parents we have known that long, baby Sidney just arrived within the last year! (heehee)  They have been customers of my husbands pool service (Clear to the Bottom Pool Service Inc.) for a while now and they recently became members of my Baby's First Year Portrait Program :o)  Aren't discounts awesome?!
It was time to update Sidney's portraits and time for their First Family Portrait, yaaaah! 
Everyone should have Family Portraits taken AT LEAST once a year. *clears throat and giggles*  It is really fun to look back and see how the family changes over the years...  Take a look at these cute people!!
