What to Expect at your Family Session

What happens exactly? My family sessions are one hour in length. These sessions are designed to capture the entire family! Which means that any and every combination of people you want in a photo together will happen during your session, time permitting. Generally we will begin with a few posed portraits.  Then I’ll encourage a […]


Harp Family – Gridley, CA

It’s such a joy to shoot wonderful families!  I love the dynamic of grouping people and showing the connections that they have in my images! Sometimes littles may not be interested in smiling on cue… this is totally normal!  Don’t stress out…  we will try several fun activities to get them into the swing of […]


Gridley Family Shoot – Gray Lodge

I don’t often get to shoot families with older siblings, so this one was a wonderful change!  I think that the stars must have all aligned for them to be able to show up all at the same time with the crazy busy schedule that they all keep!  May I say I was totally impressed […]


Biggs Family Session – Walnut orchard fun!

I thoroughly believe that my favorite children’s sessions are natural and casual…  more fun play than posed smiles.  Well this session did not disappoint and these adorable littles were so completely enjoyable, free and fun that I didn’t even mind the stickers in my shirt afterwards!  He he he…   This family is building a […]


Family Farm Lifestyle Shoot

Autumn Park Shoot – Chico, CA

Autumn is always a fun time to take photos.  The colors are incredible, but at some point a bit of rain might might dampen the mood!  We were so lucky to fit this shoot in between two rain storms and get a few beautiful photographs of this incredible family!

Younger Teens

The S Family

I remember attending this lovely couple’s wedding several years ago and was so excited when she asked me to take family photos with the entire crew!  Their littles were so enthusiastic and funny!  I think poor Gabby thought that I was going to pull my hair out but I thoroughly enjoyed the entire shoot!  Wonderful, […]


Running with a Truck… not tractor.

Yesterday afternoon I fought large swarms of mosquitoes to do a shoot in a beautiful eucalyptus grove.  It was gorgeous and the sun dappled  through the branches perfectly!  Well worth the extra bug spray people!  These three siblings made me laugh, entertained me thoroughly (yes, I got to see a chicken) and the youngest clarified […]
