All because these two below fell in love.  Amazing to think what two people together can create!  What a gorgeous, happy, and fun family…thank you so much for letting me part of your family vacation this summer here in Redding, CA!  I now refer to you as My Lake Family, lol…I think it was such a great idea for you guys to put the effort in to document this time in your life, especially while you are all together on vacation!  I know it was not easy.  If I remember correctly, you guys had one bathroom in the house you were staying at..maybe two…but there are A LOT of you!  Can you imagine 15 people trying to do their hair and makeup bright and early on vacation? lol…I can only imagine!

Some of my fave parts of the morning were watching all the littles go through my basket of hair pieces that were created by Cambria of Heavenly Avonlee Couture of Etsy.  There was a lot of excitement!  Also, loved how the older siblings really liked to play around with each other…a little teasing and taunting here and there might of been present!  Which actually helps me…nothing like spontaneous true smiles!  Thank you so much also for helping me with carrying all the vintage furniture, there is no way I would of been able to carry it all out alone!  I have to save a special thank you to…my helper…Kya, my gorgeous little girl!  Well, not so little anymore, but will always be my little girl!  Thank you Kya for passing out stickers, running behind me and jumping around to capture the attention of the littles!  Love working with you, we need to do it more often!

Hope that all of you are sure to spend more quality time together, and please do not forget to take pictures!  Even if you do not hire someone, take cell phone shots and PRINT them!  Or at least back them up several times, until you can print! lol!

Thank you again!!!!

So, it all begins here…  These two fell in love 30 years ago and created the most gorgeous family below.  Having had two children of my own, I have NO IDEA how she was able to remain sane raising SEVEN.  I might have an idea, she is a very sweet, kind, and happy woman…helps that her hubby is the same too, minus the woman part!  Thank you so much for allowing me to play in the Turtle Bay Arboretum with you!  Oh, love the way everybody did such a great job with their outfits.  Think I want to copy some that style for myself and my hubby!

This family did such a great job coordinating their outfits!  PERFECTION!  They have picked 5 main colors and look how great they look!  Love how the yellow ties into the gorgeous trees behind them!  Thank you Diana for picking me to capture your growing family!  Also, huge thanks to the entire family for helping me with all the littles…that is a big job alone.

If you are interested in booking a large family portrait session with me, please contact me and ask to view a gallery to see what types of images are included in your session.  Typically I will have you tell me the shots you want, like entire family, siblings, parents with their grand babies, etc.  Then I like to get images of people just interacting and having fun.  These types of sessions take about 2 hours to 2.5 hours.

Just a little teaser from tonights session!  Thank you guys for tromping in the fields and helping with the kiddos with our good friend, blue bird!  Oh, and I wanted to mention what a great job you guys all did with the styling of your shoot!  I am going to make a color scheme board out of it as a reference for future shoots…so thank you for looking so darn good!  Enjoy your time together tonight!

One other shout out…thank you Trudy for letting me borrow your chair!  Anybody looking for a really pretty chair that is featured on the left side of this image…let me know, Trudy would like to get rid of it…pronto! 🙂

What a great way to start a morning!  I was lucky enough to meet six very fun and very HAPPY people this morning!  As usual, I always get such happy families who love being with each other…love that!  For instance, I was taking a picture of Grandma Joy and her two granddaughters, Rebecca and Elizabeth…without ANY prompting from me…Grandma Joy was taking her index finger and gently rubbing her beautiful granddaughters arm…LOVE MOMENTS like that!  Anyhow, I thought I would share this non-traditional picture I took and hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed taking it!

Thank you guys for choosing me to take your generational portraits today!

Family traveled from way out in Alaska to Shasta Lake City…LOVE IT!  A family that gets together an enjoys their time together with all their cute kids. They were all so fun and chill, it was a great session.  Plus, we shot at Caldwell Park, which I never shoot at…so that was fun too.   I am in LOVE with the top and very bottom pictures, such emotion in both!

Thanks you guys for letting me come out and capture some fun moments of you all together!  Hope to get to do it again next year!

xoxo,
