Arielle, Ian & Maya // Sacramento Family Photographer

From the moment I walked in the door, this family exuded warmth. And they trusted me, which, to a photographer, is everything. Little Maya was exercising her independence by not wanting to be held, so we had to get creative to get all three of them in the frame. It makes the strong captures that much more gratifying. If you live in the Sacramento area and are looking for a family photographer, get in touch! My fall schedule is filling up. 

Two Nights in the Tahoe National Forest

Seven adults, one pup, and two nights in the mountains. We're already itching to go back. I posted on my instagram that I was a bit apprehensive about backpacking. I have a history of scoliosis and a back that tires easily, and in the past I wrote it off as something that wasn't for me. I don't do well when I'm tired or hungry or in pain, and I was worried it would bring out the worst in me. But our friends invited us to join them, so we bought some essentials and borrowed some gear, packed plenty of food, and stayed optimistic. Waking up that first morning to the sun rising over the lake had me sold. Having the right gear makes all the difference. I highly recommend anyone on the fence about backpacking to borrow some gear (or rent from REI) and give it a try. You have nothing to lose and the world to gain.
