{Brandon & Katie} Legion of Honor • San Francisco Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing Brandon & Katie’s wedding reception prior to these portraits.  They decided to schedule a more informal session after their big day, so we met up at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, which is one of my favorite places to shoot in the city.  It’s nestled in the middle of a golf course in the golden gate park area and has beautiful scenery!

{Kacalek Family} Baker Beach • San Francisco Photographer

It’s amazing how I blink and I’ve been photographing clients for 2, 3, 4 years.  I wish life would slow down, but we all have busy schedules and our kids are involved in sports and extra curricular activities, which then add to OUR craziness, haha, so we are constantly on the go.  Thats why I feel it is so important to stop and take a breath of fresh air.  Document your family every year or bi-annually because you too, will blink, and those babies will be 5, 10, 20 years older!  Just thinking about it, I’m almost at my 20 year high school reunion…what???  LOL.  Again, I blinked and here I am today.

This sweet family has 5 children…all the more reason to document every years milestones, a year older and they change so much!  Last fall we went to Baker Beach and photographed a few shots of the kids and family…my oh my how they have grown and changed <3

Meet sweet little Cora and her mommy, Sara <3  Cora was just a tiny little peanut when she came into the studio.  I love working with newborns!  They are such little miracles!!!

{Dawson: 3 Years} Bridgeport Penn Valley • Sacramento Family Photographer

Wow!  Dawson.  3 years old and as I’m writing this post very delayed from the actual shoot taking place, he will be 4 years old very soon!  Dawson is such a sweet and silly, happy and curious little guy.  He has always been so much fun to photograph and I love his adorable growing family <3  For Dawson’s 3 year session, we shot at Bridgeport in Penn Valley, which is a state park about an hour NE of where I live, in Rocklin.  It’s beautiful and there’s so many great areas to utilize for portraits.  Dawson loved tossing rocks into the river and seeing them “plop” in the water =)
