Last Day

Today was the last day of Kindergarten for the twins and three year old preschool for Weston.  Last Day.  Wow.  The twins didn't have a graduation, just a fun morning at the park with their friends. 


At the beginning of the year they only wrote their first name.  Now they write their first and last name. They have learned so much this year. 

First day and last day of Kinder. 

Weston had a great year of three year old preschool.  He is so ready though for what four year old preschool has in store for him.  My littlest is getting so big.

Park day for Kindergarten.

Ms. O'Connor was such a great teacher.  A few of us gave her a book full of fun gift cards for her to use over the summer.  Well deserved. 

Landon and Makenna have such a great year under their belt and are so excited to be first graders.

 Summer is here!  Time to make our summer bucket list!

A Family

I was able to photograph this family of six a week ago near my home in some pretty gorgeous light.  I have known them for several years now and our kids are pretty good buds.  I met them at a multiples park playdate back in the day when all three of my children ran in different directions out in public. Makenna was pretty jealous I wasn't taking her when I left to photograph this family knowing I would see her sweet friend Megan. This family is a strong one. In the time that I have known them their oldest son, Jacob ,and one of their triplet boys, Dylan has been diagnosed with a disease called Late Infantile Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuschinosis which is a form of Batten's DiseaseThis disease steals time and therefore Jon and Lisa wanted a photoshoot of their family.  When I left this photoshoot I had chills thinking about the images on my camera and how these would be treasured forever in years to come. I feel blessed to be able to do what I do and capture moments that are oh so precious.  When I think of this family I always think of big infectious smiles. They all truly exude joy. 

Megan, Lisa, Jacob, Jon, Dylan, and Ryan.   



Sweet Jacob just turned eight yesterday.  Such a happy boy.  Feel free to follow along here on his journey.
Thank you Allingham family for letting me photograph your forever smiling family!

Ryan and Skye

I had such a great time up in Roseville shooting this brother and sister last week. One year old Ryan and fifteen year old big sister Skye.  The weather was gorgeous. I totally dug their chosen outfits, especially the little ones's blue pants.  Too cute and colorful. 

(I couldn't resist a photo of a teen with their phone)
Great evening!

Shoot for Ariana

A family friend's daughter was just recently diagnosed with cancer.  I wanted to do something for her fight against cancer and so I decided to have a photography fundraiser.  Four families signed up and it was a big success.  I had a lot of fun and I think everyone did too!

Thanks to everyone who came out to support Ariana!

Fair Shoot

Todd and I celebrate 10 years married in July.  I knew we had to do a fun photoshoot to capture this awesome milestone.  A little fair was coming to town so we decided to do a fun fair shoot.   Cotton candy, popcorn, great weather, kisses, and laughs.  Great fun! So grateful for our fabulous photographer, Jessica Bowers, who has an amazing vision. 

I met Todd in April of 2000 and we married July of 2003.  Ten years later and now as a family of five we are still in love.  I love him and all he does for our family.  Life is good with him.  I am a lucky lady. 
On a side note:
Love my ladies that help me look my best!  xoxo

D Family

We went down and spent the weekend with my cousins and uncle and aunt in the Bay Area. My kids had a blast swimming and playing with their older cousins.  A little photo shoot at China Camp happened Saturday night. 
My cousin Blake who is about to turn 15.  He was our ring bearer in our wedding 10 years ago. Time flies.

Great weekend!
