When thinking of your engagement session, I ask my couples to think outside the box. This Cresent City Engagement Session was unlike any session I have done so far!

This senior session had it all, from the sun glowing, light shining through the trees perfectly and not a cloud in the sky. The one thing you may not see is that it was very chilly, but Adeline was a trooper and we had a blast taking pictures. It helped being put in the sun […]

Fall senior sessions are one of my favorites. Between the colors changing in the trees and sunset glow, it makes these senior sessions magical. Lexxi wanted to have her senior session in both Lower Bidwell Park and in a grassy field in Chico. It is the perfect way to capture Chico in the fall. I […]

Lower Bidwell Fall Senior Session are the best. Lower Bidwell can be so beautiful with the changing colors, leaves on the ground and the glow in the trees. Ellie decided she wanted to split her senior session in two and have one hour in the fall and one hour in the spring. Ellie came to […]

  This dreamy Upper Bidwell Park Fall Engagement Session is unlike any other session I have photographed. The light was dreamy and magical. The original day of the session was projected over 40mph winds. Let me tell you, it wouldn’t have been as magical, because everyone would be miserable having to be in the high […]

Location is always the question of topic when it comes to any session. It was an easy decision for Grace. This rice field senior session, was done in their family fields. This spot her her happy places and I can see why. There is so much generational history behind them, as well as her love […]

Where do I begin? Janet and Matt had a vineyard wedding at Suisun Valley Inn, located in Fairfield, California. The wedding day was very windy, but it did settle down during the ceremony and stayed that way for the remainder of the evening. Everything about their day was beautiful and so much joy. Janet and […]

Today marks our four year wedding anniversary. Derek and I have been together for a total of 6. It is amazing how fast time flies when you find your person to spend your life with. It is amazing to think it has already been four years. How our story began Derek and I met while […]

Remember the story about the firefighter and the nurse? If you don’t check out the engagement session here! It was FINALLY their wedding day. They had a Gover Ranch wedding. Due to the fires I was worried about the smoke. Surprisingly, it cleared up just enough for the sun to shine through. This result created […]
