Folsom Lake Lupine Family Photos

These beautiful lupine wildflowers bloom every spring at Folsom Lake (located near Sacramento). When I first saw these wildflowers on the news last year I knew that I needed to experience them for myself. I was so excited when this gorgeous family trusted in my vision and agreed to do their family photo session among the lupine.  We met at Beeks Bight at Folsom Lake in Granite Bay. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect evening! This family was so easy going and went along with my idea to hike a little ways. They laughed and played, climbed

I first met this beautiful mama while she was still pregnant when I had the honor of doing her maternity photos. She was one of those pregnant women that absolutely glows. During her maternity session she snuggled her daughter and her adorable bump while I captured their sweet connection. We talked about living here in Rocklin, California. We discovered that we live not only in the same neighborhood, but around the corner from each other! One of the great things about Rocklin is that it’s located close to Sacramento and Roseville but has a small town feel. I was so excited

Rocklin Family Photo Session

Taking fall family photos of this beautiful mama and her daughter was an absolute joy! She is the best mom, incredibly strong and loves her daughter beyond words can even begin to describe. The mother and daughter duo share the sweetest connection. Throughout our session I found myself thinking that this adorable girl is so lucky to have a mom like Ali. They laughed, played, tickled and snuggled each other during our time together. When I look back at these motherhood images I can feel their authentic connection and genuine adoration for one another. STYLING This mama and I worked


Fall Family Photos at UC Davis

When this beautiful mama reached out to me about doing fall family photos I was so honored! Not only is she stunning but she also has a heart of gold. She is the kind of person that everybody considers to be their best friend! I am so lucky to call her a childhood friend. Even if we go months without talking I know we will pick up right where we left off.  While discussing location options for their family photos she shared with me that she wanted a forest vibe. Living in Rocklin, California there are not very many dense forests



I have always been drawn to light, authenticity and deep connections with others. My love for photography began as I watched my mom capture our families adventures and then wait in anticipation for the photos to be developed. I was so fascinated that I was able to look back and relive those moments through our photos. As a wife and mama to three babies (who aren’t really babies anymore) I know just how precious these days are. I want to remember all the little things about motherhood, how my kids felt in my arms and what our family has looked like through each stage of life. I carry this deep love of storytelling and authenticity when I am behind the camera and hope to capture your beautiful family soon.
