~Happy New Year~ {Sacramento Senoir Portrait Photog}

Happy New Year to you! I hope that 2013 is wonderful and fabulous to you! Goodness it's been a while since I posted in my poor neglected blog. Like many, I have a few resolutions this year that I hope to be successful at achieving and one of those is to post at least weekly to my blog!! I love my blog but the thing that holds me back is the writing, I find it so hard to put into words what I would like to say!! Second on my res list is to successfully complete a project 52 so that I can print up an album at the end of the year! I'll post more on that later. Third on my list is to enter more contests and challenges to keep me growing in my work and that leads me to the photo I'm posting. IHeartfaces has their "Best of 2012" face challenge this week. It took me a while to decide on my entry but I just loved this session with this gorgeous senior so much. Everything was so perfect, the light, the weather and she was such a sweetheart, the perfect model. This shot of her in her soccer jersey I love, she is going to play soccer at the college she will be attending next fall. The thing I love about this image is that she's looks tough and formidable but absolutely beautiful at the same time! And, you really need to head over to iheartfaces,, to see all of the gorgeous entries. I can't imagine how they will ever choose, they are all so wonderful! Photobucket Photo Challenge Submission

F is for Fairy, is the first thing I thought of when I saw the ABC challenge at iheartfaces. My girl loves anything fairy and I love how she's totally channeling her inner fairy in this image.

~Family Fun~ {Sacramento Family Photographer}

Happy 2012 to everyone!! My first post for the year:) Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year!! Hope you all had some wonderful family time during the holidays. I spent a great time with lots of family during Christmas. We had fun and it was good seeing everyone. I've been working on my new website and picking my favorite images from not just 2011 but 2010 and 2009 as well. My site has been in need of a serious update for a while. Not sure if any of you saw this image I posted in fb but I thought of it as soon as I saw the theme over at iheartfaces this week, "Family fun"!! This is a favorite family image I love from a family session in 2011. This little guy was hilarious, such a cutie and full of character, I loved photographing him. I had a blast with the whole family. There are some amazing images to see, so if you have a chance head on over to iheartfaces!

~Wilma~ {Sacramento Pet Photographer}

Wow, it's been way too long since I've posted in my blog.  So sorry I've neglected my wonderful blog.  Last year, I started a photo project and did not finish it. This year, I'm determined to start a photo project and finish it to the end.  I chose, Let's do 52 hosted by Annie Manning of Paint the Moon Photography. Every week a new theme will be posted on her blog and our goal is a take a photo that fits the theme.  I'm happy to get started but sad that my first post is not a happy one.  This past week our sweet cat, age 17, lost her battle with kidney disease.  We adopted her when she was 2 or three and she was a member of our family for 14 wonderful years.  I still remember the first day we met her.  We went to Petsmart to find a kitty to keep our first cat company.  So in we walk during their adoption center event and look in all the cages.  Well, our sweet kitty flipped onto her back when we opened her cage door and wanted us to rub her belly.  Not many cats act like a dog that I know of.  She had the sweetest, kindest personality.  She always greeted us when we came home from wherever and she loved hanging out with us.  She loved to jump up on the desk while I would be working, rubbing my face trying to get me to stop typing on computer.  I've missed her dearly the past few days.  Missed hearing her meowing at me,  having her at my side hanging with me and picking her up to give her a huge hug and love. So, I'd like to dedicate my first project 52 to our sweet kitty.  This image of her I love because she hardly ever would look into the camera for me.  Her favorite thing to do was be as high as she could be above everyone so naturally she's looking down at me.   
Wishing you all a most happy 2012!!

~The D Boys~{Sacramento Child Photographer}

What a fun session I had last Friday with these two cute boys.  I've known them both since the oldest was in Kinder and the youngest was born.  I met their Mom when my daughter started Kinder, we were room Moms together and our kids are great friends:)  I loved capturing their fun moments.  We had great fun!!   Thanks Shannon, for all your help and choosing me to photograph your sweet boys!!

Mr. B wasn't quite warming up to the photo taking idea....

And, he decided, I'm outta here:)

Loved his and his brother's shoes!

Finally a genuine smile...

Big bro, the perfect model:)

Thanks again, you three, for a fun session. Looking forward to showing you the rest soon.
Have a wonderful week!!
