family of five | sneak peek

December 13, 2011

well not really a sneak. they have already ordered. i am sooo behind on blogging!

i love shooting families. and we got to go urban here and that was a fun change up!

downtown redding is just full of color and smells. we saw a short but loud train roll by.

we ran away from someone’s very recent barfo mess (not from us yeck!) and the smell of burning uhhh…cannibus was very strong.

but really a fun session. i am amazed at what we were able to grab in 30 minutes!

love the B family! <3 xx

 

 moved over a little bit after the exciting train went by.

full of smells that had us running for a safe spot by the downtown mall.

doesn’t she look amazing? ahhh! such a gorgeous family!

and those were THE last snaps i grabbed of this session. thanks B family!

so i lost my first tooth | sneak peek

July 18, 2011

I featured her brother a while back. And I couldn’t NOT feature her too. Fair is fair right?

Losing your first tooth is a big deal and I love that she shared with me!

The toothfairy that visited her, totally needs to finish my house.

Money, a sweet little note…man! Our toothfairy slips a buck under the pillow and steals the tooth. 😛

Thanks Miss Sofia! Next tooth you lose- please leave a little note with your tooth sharing our home address so your fairy can swing by here. 😀

future cartographer | sneak peek | lifestyle

June 25, 2011

map maker map maker find me a map.

build me a bridge…find me a….

MAP.

😀

i had the pleasure of shooting this guy last night. i knew he was into maps and geography but until i SAW for myself – i really had no idea. for fun he makes maps, complete with functional road ways, rivers- they include counties and cities within the counties. he writes very tiny and precise. he showed me the pieces he is currently on and the piece he had been working on before but “it was really not my best piece”. he totally said that. his walls are decorated with maps he made and lego cities he built too- also labeled. and he had a whole file cabinet filled with real maps- organized super tidy. i was very impressed. this is for his mom. <3 i will be blogging the rest of the family’s session later this week but i had to share this. <3

we went to the sundial bridge for more shots. and he made a beeline for the touchscreen map. 😀

n, you’re awesome!

fabulously fun G family | the good life | family | redding, ca family photographer

April 8, 2011

the G family wanted to hit downtown a little bit.

the awesome red of the Lorenz hotel as our backdrop in some, the downtown mall for another and we even stood next to the tracks as the train whistled past us so loud we had to cover our ears and our hair flying everywhere.

i’ve never shot downtown – so this was new and fun for me!

they were oh so silly and fun fun fun!

thanks for letting me tag along G family!
