Thanks so much Ryan and Courtney!  As usual, I always enjoy my time with you guys.  Really, I think you both are very solid people and I am glad to call you both my friends.  I rarely shoot at Caldwell Park here in Redding, and so glad we did.  So happy with these images, really cute stuff!  Bubble fun, fun with a sheet, and you can’t forget some rough housing with the boys.  Thanks for being patient with me for some of the new shots, it is difficult I have to say after years of taking portraits of the same family…changing it up! Ha!

Enjoy your holidays and hope to see you both soon!

Thank you so much Mike and Dani for letting me take your family portraits this year.  Okay, lets start with styling, gorgeous Dani!  That dress…the fall colors, perfection!  Location, OMG…this meadow she took me to is simply amazing and the public is able to use it!  So, anybody who wants to shoot there, please let me know!  I would love to go out there again!  EVEN though Siri and I got so very lost deep in the forest down a dirt road for a good 15 mins!  HA!  So worth it though!  The color is even a bit different in the photos then the meadows in Redding, so nice for a little change for me.  I find the same thing happens in Mt. Shasta as well.

I have to say, taking portraits for another photographer is always a bit intimidating, but I made it through!  If you would like to check out Dani’s beautiful work, please check out her site Dani D Photography.  I actually send my sleepy baby newborns her way, plus a few other great photographers.

Such love in this family, I had a hard time culling down the images for the blog post, but below are a few of my favorites. Bubbles are now part of my kit, so don’t be surprised if you see lots of family portraits with bubbles for some time!  Kids just love them and makes them smile ear to ear…adults too.

Some of my favorite people!  Thank you guys for letting me take your family portraits!  Little Joseph is so adorable and such a boy!  Love this first image of Jonathan and him silhouetted against the blue sky.  Great job on color coordination and looking beautiful as always!  These images were taken over at the gorgeous gardens of Turtle Bay Arboretum…maybe my favorite place close to my home to shoot and visit. Enjoy every moment of little Joesph, they grow up wicked fast!

Thank you so much Amy and Jason for allowing me to take Tanner’s 2nd birthday portraits.  It was so fun getting to watch him explore Turtle Bay’s Arboretum, which is a magical place for a toddler.  Also, thank you for your kind words about the images, you guys really made my night.  Love this first image.  It is funny, because it is a very telling picture.  This is when I switched from my long lens and went to the 35mm.  35mm lenses means up close and personal, and his reaction was perfection.  Can’t blame him for taking a sneak peek through his teeny tiny fingers.  Enjoy this time with your son, they grow up so fast.

Oh Laura, Laura, Laura, really loved how simple, clean, and magical this years family portraits are.  Your clothing choices are spot on, your makeup…gorgeous, but when is it not.  Your littles, ha…as if…Lauray is almost as tall as you now, looked gorgeous.  We got through this session wicked fast, seemed like 45 mins?  Maybe shorter.  Thank your for always allowing me to take  your family portraits, and for being my friend.  It was fun seeing your handsome brother’s again!  Glad they got to be in some of the portraits.

Enjoy those growing kids, they are so sweet.  I love the ones with you snuggled up and then fixing Lauray’s hair.

Just had to share some of Cambria’s Fall 2017 for Heavenly Avonlee Couture.  More to come later!

So, I am seriously behind on featuring this family, like maybe close to a year behind!  I am so sorry Staci!  I was looking through old files and saw this and checked, and sure enough…not blogged.  I am beyond sorry.

I now am so curious what your little man looks like these days!  His eyes, those perfect wide eyes, I am sure he is a handsome little guy.

Anyhow, thank you so much for allowing me to take your family portraits about a year ago in Brandon and Jennifer’s meadow.  Your family was very sweet and gentle.

Okay, really this is my favorite of the year so far.  So many reasons why, and I have some time right now to share!

To begin, I love where we live, we are so lucky to have such beauty all around us all the time, such as Whiskeytown.  Now, that I have said this…I do want to mention that I am going to begin going to the City Council Meetings starting ASAP.  I would like to protect what we have here in Northern California, lately the creeper status has been off the charts!  I personally feel like it is time for the residents of Redding, CA and surrounding areas to get involved.  It would be great if you happen to be a local and feel the same way, to join me.

Now, back to the family portrait shoot!

Amanda did such a wonderful job styling this shoot!  The clothing is spot on!  She even had to break out need and thread to create this perfect look!  She even paired her clothing with Dark Pony Designs jewelry.  There were so many great images from her session that I feel in love with that I had a difficult time choosing what to share on the portrait blog.  Another thing I so loved about this family session would be the love shared between their family, so much love!

Thank you so much Jake and Amanda for sticking with me after all these years!!!

Oh my goodness, seriously perfect little angel.  This meadow is a new discovery, and I am thrilled to show these cute little images off!  Thank you so much Nick and Marisa for letting me take pictures of little Ava.  Love the custom head pieces?  Check out Heavenly Avonlee Couture to get your own.  This is such a fun age to photograph, especially in a field like this.

How cute is her little concentration tongue! lol!  The little things that we sometimes forget as our children grow up, which is why pictures…any pictures are so wonderful.  Must freeze that moment in time to treasure and look back on forever.

I do own two of these dresses and all the hair pieces if you decide you would like to create something like this with your little one. Of course, you could also have Cambria the artist who makes these bands create a one of a kind just for you too.

Oh, how I miss spring already!

xoxo,

Jamie
