What a nice surprise to find out that one of my photographs from 2014 was featured by Shutterfly.  They published a blog post about 20 Creative Large Family Photo Ideas and picked a shot of Diana Christiansen’s family taken in Shasta Lake City near some gorgeous yellow trees.  I have to say, I recall scouting this location for her family and had to recruit my husband and his dad to help make a somewhat clean spot to put all my ivory furniture out for their family.  To begin, we had to clear a discarded home/fort someone had created.  Then, there were low growing blackberry bushes that lined the ground, that were particularly fun to walk through.  Everyone involved with the shoot was such a trooper.  The color combination of cream, grey, and yellow is perfect.

Thank you Shutterfly for showcasing one of my images on your site.

Are you a maker or a designer?  If so, please take some time to check out The Redding Fashion Alliance.  The Redding Fashion Alliance celebrated the holiday season and their relocation to the downtown area with a Holiday Open House event on December 22, 2017. Members of the Redding community stopped by 1698 Market Street to tour the maker space, network, mingle, meet the directors, enjoy the refreshments, and find out more about utilizing the organization.

Special Thanks to:
Jan Kearns (catering)

Thank you so much Dan and Sara for allowing Jesse and I to document a portion of your perfect wedding day at Redding’s Riverview Golf & Country Club.  Your day couldn’t of been more beautiful, from the weather, to the guests and the gorgeous happy couple.  Loved the way you two looked at each other, such love.  Sara, oh my goodness…those shoes, that dress, and an elegance that I am sure is part of the reason that Dan looks at you the way he does.  Dan, have to say…you looked pretty good in your tux.  I wish the both of you the strongest and most loving marriage for the rest of your time together.

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!

Brett, thank you so much for letting me take your senior pictures the other week.  You were such a great subject!  Looking forward also to getting you into the studio for some of my other work.  I really love this fist image, love how the car drove by at just the right time!  Also, so surprised with your light eyes that you can handle the sun the way you do!  Thank you to Kya and Layne for being my assistants for the day!  It was fun to play with some off camera light with everyone!  Having assistants makes such a difference in speed and quality of images.  One day I will always have an assist or two!
