So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye...

It's time to say goodbye and enjoy the splendors of summer!! I shall be back in business on August 8th, 2013. Please be patient if you send an inquiry. I'm mostly without internet until I'm back home!

I hope your summer is awesome! Go out and enjoy life!

And since I can't post without a picture, here's my girl loving life at the beach. And now we're off to a landlocked country... hahaha! At least Switzerland has many rivers & lakes ;-).

Ava & David * Fremont, CA * Northern California Children's Photographer

Ava & David were such cuties! 

Little David was a busy bee, he was super quick too... AND he had to have his cracker, you'll see. Oh, two year olds ;-)! 

Miss Ava on the other hand was quite the model. I love that she had her favorite stuffed animal with her, it really helped bring emotion to a still image. At least for me, I can't look at them without going "AWWWWWWW" ;-).

Her teen cousin joined the party!

The A Family * Fremont, CA * Family Photography

I love it when clients come back to me, there's no better compliment =)! The lovely A Family brought along their elderly dog this time... and he "kinda sorta" was the star of the shoot (shhh, don't tell the kids). I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

A Photographer's Daughter * Suisun City, CA * Child Portrait Photographer

My youngest, she's been my little model, my muse, for years. But lately, she's gotten a bit camera shy. I don't blame her. Being eleven is tough. It's an awkward age, trying to fit in, figuring out who you want to be, not being a little kid anymore, but also not seen as an adult. And not to mention all the physical changes, she seems to grow overnight these days.

So I have to beg and plead to take her pictures. Or follow her lead and tag along, while she's just doing what she loves to do. Exactly what we did here. She took her horse out for a shoot. I should show you some of her pictures, she's pretty darn good for her age.

Evy's Tree * Santa Rosa, CA * Commercial Photography

Finally, here's a long overdue post about a fabulous commercial shoot for Evy's Tree! I must say, this was something totally new to me and new things make me nervous... that's just how I roll ;-). Usually small business owners mail their items to me and I pick models/locations/props. But dear Amy did all the work for me! I simply had to show up and shoot =). Which meant I had never seen the location before, no clue about the light. So I was super nervous, have I mentioned that yet?

As soon as I arrived, my nerves calmed though. Amy is just such a sweetheart! And everybody who modeled was awesome too. I met some amazing people that day and I'm so glad I had the chance to do this.

Make sure to check out Evy's Tree! You'll see more of my images on her website (especially here: Meet Evy's Tree). And yes, I totally included some images of the little guys in the families, even though they were not decked out in Evy's Tree. They were just too cute not to share!
