They’re just days away from welcoming their third baby boy into their family. I think God has a special place in heaven for moms of boys :)

Over the past year or so I have really been digging deep into trying to become the photographer I’ve always wanted to be. This doesn’t mean I’ve suddenly arrived, actually the opposite. It means that I’m finding little snippets, little glimpses of that person, the person who takes the photos I see forming in my mind.

Photographers in my area (Sacramento, CA) are seriously a dime a dozen (and believe me, there are some amazing photographers here! I am so blessed to call quite a few of them my friends!) Because though, I work in one of the most saturated cities in the country, I’ve been so bent on trying to figure out how to make myself stand out and be different from the rest. In doing this, I missed the mark, the mark that says this is a gift God gave me that was always intended to glorify Him.

I glorify Him by calling my clients friends, by truly caring about their brand new babies, by being sincerely excited that a past client wants me to come back and photograph them again. This job that I do means more to me than a dollar sign, it’s my way to express the love and careful details of each family. I’ve never met two families who are exactly alike, and that keeps me on my toes. But each family I do meet is so wonderfully unique, and the details that make them a family is what I absolutely love to capture.

Every year we look forward to taking photos in the yellow mustard flowers that pop up here in our part of Sacramento. My little family is so supportive and really allows me to photograph them when I want to. They know how much the yellow flowers mean to me! The sun wasn’t exactly in the right spot yet for the big yellow field, so we drove over to my favorite park for a couple minutes. It was absolutely glorious. The sun was perfect, filtered right through the bare trees, and tiny little bell flowers were growing in bunches, (or maybe they were buttercups? I would love someone to point that out for me!)

Here’s just one photo from this evening, and a plea…if you have been putting off having a photo session done, please contact me right now. This is the most wonderful time of the year for photos and I promise you, if you want them done, NOW is the time. The field of yellow flowers is already starting to be mowed, and these sweet bell flowers will only last a short time. So use this link to contact me so we can set up an easy, lighthearted sunset evening together, where I capture your family just being you.

ps. It feels amazing to photograph in color after a full month of black and white!!!

We recreated our annual photo and wow is it getting tough!! They are so much bigger than when I could pose them as tiny little people! I much prefer the outtakes (which I will share tomorrow!) But the kids all unanimously chose this photo for day 28. I love that they all had a say in the photos this month, it was so much fun doing this with them!

I had no clue what to do for today’s photo, so they all told me what kind of photo take :) So adorable those three!

She isn’t feeling so well today, so we made sure she got some much needed Vitamin D time :)
