One of a kind.

Beautiful in every sense of the word.

Loves Jesus.

A good friend.

And even better sister.

I have no fear of the teenage years, because I know we will have just so much fun.

Inside a little yellow one room school house, set on the edge of Gold Rush country, you sat in your desk practiced your numbers. While minding your own business, I imagine your braids would have been pulled and you would have broken your slate over that incorrigible boy’s head. He would have immediately fallen in love with you and maybe one day you would come back to teach in the same little yellow one room school house. At least that is one way the story could go…

It’s a simple jar, filled with soil and seeds. She decorated the front with stickers and faithfully waters it every day. It sits on the window sill, a place where it will always have the sun. She is so proud, as she should be.

Like all 10 year old boys, you are obsessed with Star Wars. But who are we kidding? Even your Daddy is obsessed with Star Wars. You’re all big kids at heart. Amy Schuff Child Photographer

February is one of my favorite months of the year. We have lots of birthdays this month and also I get to take one photo, each day, of my children in black and white. I’ve done this for a few years now and I really enjoy the kinds of photos I end up with at the end of the month. This is a leap year, so it is my 29 days of photos project. Stick around if you would like! I’ll also be posting on my Facebook and CMPro Daily Project.

I’m pulling this blog out of my drafts, it is a couple months old, but I’m missing her Daddy tonight and there’s no reason this post needs to sit. Remember to take photos of your spouse with your children, even if they don’t want you to. It’s non-negotiable. Seriously.


***She asked me to take her picture because she liked what she was wearing (sheesh!!) I shot for 5 minutes and included Daddy in the photos. All you need is 5 minutes and a relaxed mindset. Then you put them into Lightroom and you edit each photo for 10 seconds each. Done and done.¬†You get the photos you get…and maybe you get some you love. The point is…just shoot.

I just love it when clients make me think of my own family. See, us Schuffs are a little wild, a little rowdy and we think we’re pretty fun. Well THIS family was all of those things. And when Dad looked into Mom’s eyes? Oh gosh…that is the kind of example children need in this world.

My husband left for Lesvos, Greece this morning. In case you haven’t heard, thousands upon thousands of innocent people are fleeing a horrible terrorist organization called ISIS. They are paying upwards to $3500 to board a raft or small boat, put on a life jacket that they actually don’t know is fake (yes, fake) and they take the extremely dangerous 6 mile trip over harsh, choppy water to the small island of Lesvos in Greece. Many people don’t make it, many babies, children, men and women don’t survive this trip.

So when God calls…we go. In this case, my husband went with an amazing group of people to go help, in whatever capacity is needed. Political views aside, there’s no way we can turn our backs on what is happening. If just one small child feels the love of God, the whole trip will be worth it. Yes I wish I had been able to go with them, but like many women across the country, I am called to “hold down the fort.” I am a comfort to my children and I make sure their Daddy doesn’t need to worry about anything on this end. We will miss him horribly, but all I ever wanted was a husband who chased after God, and I have that.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:35-40

This wonderful returning client took advantage of my holiday mini sessions last month! I’m so glad they did as they are a lovely, sweet family. I’m also so glad they brought their dog! I am very much a dog person and so if you ever want to bring your little animals to a session with me, I am all for it!

My calendar for the Spring is open right now! I have already seen some yellow flowers popping up around Natomas. Contact me soon so that we can get your Spring family session on the books!
