Yuba City Maternity Photographer | {Katrina}

This glowing mom-to-be came referred by one of my Sacramento clients and made the drive up in the scorching heat. I felt so bad for her to be pregnant in over 100 degree weather. What a trooper she was though...and up for all sorts of fun! She and her husband are expecting their first baby almost exactly 1 year after their wedding...its been a busy year for this newlywed couple! ;)

Thanks to Duane and Katrina for a great shoot and for not totally laughing at my fear of spiders! :) HA HA!

A big thanks to Rebecca for inspiring this shot:

Yuba City Photographer | {Megan & her beautiful family}

Last night I had the privilege of photographing this gorgeous woman, Megan and her family. Megan is a girl I went to highschool with and is currently fighting her 3rd battle with cancer. She is so courageous and strong-- what an inspiration to us all!

She has 9 year old twins and a 9 week old new baby. Her and her husband are SO in could just feel the love and support last night as we worked on capturing some family moments.

Enjoy your sneak peek "T" family! I hope to see you soon and capture the WHOLE family!

I have been dying to use this chair on a little baby for awhile now...he was the perfect choice:

Yuba City Photographer | {NEW Collections available NOW!}

After careful review and speaking with some local mom's, I redesigned my Collections. Previously, the 1st year collection was 3 sessions at various ages. NOW, its 4 sessions at various STAGES. Switching like this ensures that no stage of your baby's development goes un-noticed and un-photographed. We do a newborn session, a tummy time session, a sitting up session, a first steps session and a 1st birthday session. AND, a total bonus right now is that when you book and pay in full, you get a 5th SESSION TOTALLY FREE! The Stages Collection includes various prints, books, CD's and discounts on photo jewelry. Who could ask for more?

Well, since you asked, I did change my maternity/newborn package. Instead of just a short maternity package and a newborn session- you can now add on live birth photography (as graphic or modest as you desire) and make sure that those first breaths, first moments of life, first footprints...all of it is captured professionally and you don't have to worry about a thing except bonding with your new baby. I take a 'fly on the wall' approach to birth photography and only capture what is thoroughly discussed in our consultation. Its really a great way to capture all elements of your pregnancy, delivery and new baby.

Be sure to check out the Collections online at today!

Yuba City Senior Photographer | {JJ- Class of 2009}

JJ was the student speaker at his graduation at ACE in Wheatland and even though we didn't get his photos done before the big ceremony, we did manage to meet up last week and capture some amazing senior photos for him and his parents.

Already working and getting ready for college, JJ and his parents had me laughing through our entire session! Can't wait to see you all again for your family shoot soon!

Yuba City Children's Photographer | {McNewborn is now Mc-6 Months}

Little baby McNewborn from Decemeber is now Mr. Mc-6 Months. Where does the time go?

We got up nice and early the other day to capture his 6 month photos in my portable studio set up and he was SO cute for us...he even growls like his dinosaur!!! I love it!

Yuba City Photographer, Marysville Photographer | {Best of Yuba-Sutter 2009}

A couple of weeks ago my friend informed me that her and her family, some of her friends and various other community members had voted for me in the Appeal Democrat's BEST OF Yuba-Sutter 2009 for Best Photographer. I was in SHOCK! I couldn't believe that I had fans whom I had never met, folks that enjoyed my work and were on my site and my blog that often and that people generally would use the term "best" to describe my business and my photos. I kept quiet about it because I didn't want to jinx myself or seem like I was fishing for votes, but I was so proud that I just had to let everyone know! HOW NEAT IS THIS?!

If you enjoyed working with me this year, love my work, are a fan, can vote and nominate me as well.

Voting on this category closes tomorrow and you can vote online at this site:

It only takes a second. Make sure to read the rules before hand as it takes a certain number of categories to qualify your votes, 30 categories, I believe. "Best Photographer" is listed near the bottom under the "people" category.

Thanks a ton for everyone's support in the community!

Marysville Newborn Photographer | {Little Trent}

This is little Trent (who wasn't so little at over 8lbs when he was born)...and isn't he a DOLL with all his dark hair? He has a darling big brother who is such a good helper too. I spent a nice day with them and captured their little guy, some classic 'baby in the hands' photos, some big brother and baby photos and some totally new stuff too. More to come from this gorgeous family! I can't wait to see them again soon.

Marysville Photographer | {Let's Relay!}

Tomorrow, June 13 is the annual Relay for Life event at Geweke Field. I have been a huge American Cancer Society partner for years, particpating in events from Sacramento, Yuba-Sutter, nationally and with a variety of organizations.

My mother is a cancer survivor. My grandfather was a cancer victim. I have young friends who have had cancer. And I bet you have similar stories, right? Unfortunately, cancer has touched many of our lives and has cut short even more too many.

Now that I have a good business name behind me, I feel like I can do more for the cause. I teamed up with the Yuba County Office of Education (YCOE) this year and we are raffling off a FREE photo shoot and enlargement with Jessica Cole Photography! I will be at the event with samples of my work, my newborn book "Tiny Bits of Bliss", my own babies will be there for awhile with my mom and my family. There will be LOTS going on in our booth for SURE!

On top of the raffle, I will also be having some exclusive deals and promotions that are only available from 11AM-5PM so make sure you stop by, ask and bring your checkbooks!!! The American Cancer Society could sure use the support!

Come tomorrow and tell me your story. We all have one.

And, I will leave you with Miss Mila from this morning:

Marysville Children's Photographer | {My babies!}

My girls were pretty bald for the longest time but I got to thinking the other day that I could get their hair into pig tails. With a little 'home studio' fun and a couple of clippies, we finally got some shots of the pigtails! FINALLY! After 19 moths of baldness and 'baby mullets', we have real pigtails!

Marysville Family Photographer | {For Rebecca}

This is my friend Rebecca and her GORGEOUS family! We had a great traveling session tonight and would have kept going as long as the light and the kids could have lasted. I guess that's how it goes when you get two creative minds together, right?

I always take it as a real honor when a fellow photo pro wants little me to take their photos. Enjoy the sneak peek, Rebecca!

This is one of my favorites! Doesn't it just look like a perfume ad or something? LOVE it!

I have so many more to sort thru but I just could not wait to share these favorites before going to sleep tonight. Thanks again Rebecca & we'll see you soon!

Marysville Maternity Photographer | A day with the girls!

A week ago I got to go out with a good friend of mine and do some fun maternity photos. We had a great group of girls at various stages of their pregnancy and we got to try out some fun new ideas. It was so fun and I can't wait for future projects together.

Thank you to all our participants & I hope you enjoy!

And, of course, I have to include this photo of Rebecca...laying down on the job as usual, huh girl? ;)
