Welcome to my Blog!

Thank you for coming to my site and viewing my blog. This is where I display a Sneak Peek for my clients to get a look at some of their images taken during their Photo Session. This is a wonderful way to get an idea of what I do for my clients and for them to share their experience with their friends and family! Thank you to all of our past and current clients, I am so grateful to be a part of documenting your lives. "Your Portraits.... Our Passion. Together We Create the Perfect Portraits!"

ON SATURDAY APRIL 14th from 1pm-4pm (possibly later)
I am having a Special Spring Portrait Day!!

I know it doesn't feel much like Spring with all the rain around us this week but it will be here soon!  And we need all of this rain to make this spot in Folsom pop with these amazing colors for your sessions!!  This location here in Folsom is one of top favs.  There is so much we can do in a little amount of time... Which is why I chose it for my Special Spring Photo Day!  Here we can sit on grass cover steps, climb on rocks next to the water (safely of course!), walk across a little rustic bridge or walk down a little path along the trees.  

Here's how the Mini Sessions work:

  • Each session is ONLY $40 (lowest prices ever offered by the way!)  And if you your friends/other family members book a session too... YOUR session is FREE!
  • Your session will be about 30 minutes or so and I do not count time/poses or outfit changes.  We are out here to have fun!  Bring a change of clothes or two, any props you have in mind and we will walk around and get some great portraits! You can bring the family dog, children, Grandma & Grandpa, whatever type of session you need (besides a Wedding, lol!) we can do it here during your mini session.
  • I am offer CD's for ONLY $125 (which is more than half off the regular prices as well!) 
  • You can purchase prints, albums, canvases, jewelry, coasters... whatever you have your heart set on :o)

 If you are ready to book and I know you are!  Contact me by email please: trina@ClaycombPhotography.com  I am also here to answer any questions you might have.

Featured here are a couple of my favorite sessions at this location.  The first family wanted some photo-journalistic style portraits where everyone was just being themselves, not necessarily looking at the camera.  It gives the portraits a more relaxed vibe.  Adorable family don't you think?!  The second set of photos is a Senior Portrait session during one of the most "green" times I have ever seen in Folsom and the backgrounds, as well as the young lady, are just breathe taking in my opinion! (I have so many more from Folsom but I couldn't post them all, sorry!)

Baby Lily ~ Posh Baby Session

I normally don't do 2 posts in the same day but I just realized I never posted this adorable little girl ~ Lily and her siblings :o)  Enjoy! PS I always need newborn baby models for new props I get in on a monthly basis, so if you are interested or know someone who is, send them my way... The sessions are FREE!!

Kuebler Family Portraits!!!

I LOVE SPRING!!  Although it doesn't feel much like Spring around here right now... I still love the thought that all the beautiful green grass and flowers are on there way!! YAAA!  The perfect setting, next to the Fall Season, for Outdoor Family Photos!!
This adorable couple with their set of identical twins, 2 year old twins, met me at the park for their first family portraits, along with their little puppy Daisy (She is the little black fur ball next to the girls, lol!)  Take a look how sweet they all look together in the park...
