Welcome!

Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

Roseville baby portraits

Seems like baby Liam was born yesterday. Time goes by so quickly; Liam is now 6-month old. I had the pleasure of capturing his mom and dad’s wedding pictures, then maternity pictures. And now I get to capture Liam’s beautiful blue eyes! I love this little munchkin; he is the cutest, nicest boy ever. I’m so excited to watching him grow and capturing many more of his growing up memories. Hope he enjoyes looking at these pictures when he is no longer a little one!

Folsom wedding photography: Ann + Josh

Ann & Josh’s big day arrived just like that! I photographed their engagement session not too long ago and we talked about how exciting their wedding was going to be! Ann & Josh met at work (just like my hubby and I), they are both engineers (ditto) and they got married at teh Lake Natoma Inn (so did we)!!! Their wedding sure brought a couple of my own memories back!

Ann chose vibrant colors of red, yellow and orange roses for their wedding flower. I loved the petal decore on the aisl runner. And the crazy lighting at the reception was simply awesome. Here are some of my favorites from their big day.

Roseville Sacramento high school Senior Portrait

I met Cassie last weekend for the first time during her recent visit to California. She was in the west coast visiting her dad and checking out potential colleges to attend. What a beautiful young lady was she! Her interest is in films and screen writing. She wants to attend UCLA as a Film major. I was charmed by her interpretation of the movie “Inception”. Besides the intellectual side of her, she was a beautiful, adorable, sweet 17 year old girl who couldn’t spend a single day without her little bunny.

We headed to Sacramento Capitol park for her session. I had a great time shooting, capturing the fun and fancy moments for her senior pictures. Here’s just a few from her session.

Ten seconds of happiness: Part 2

So much for having a new blog category! I’m just getting to it for the second time. At least, I’m making an effort here ;). This week’s mention goes to –

1. Icing on the Cupcake – My favorite cupcakes now-a-days! If you are local to the area (greater Sacramento area that is) you must try these! Heavenlyyyyyy!!! Their Red velvet cupcakes are my favorites so far, and I don’t even like red velvet cake. Go figure! I suggested a friend of mine to have these on his wife’s surprise birthday party. He went to the store and texted me immediately after trying out the samples. I was on my way back from work, but I had to take a detour and stop by the cup cake store to pick up a couple! Yummmmm!!!

2. The Presidio of San Francisco – I heart SF! One of my favorite cities in the world! There wasn’t a time when I did not enjoy my time there. A weekend ago J and I drove over to Baker beach for Nicole and JP’s engagement session. We drove around the presidio on our way back. Once we entered the park, we had to stop the car and take a picture of this beautiful site! Clouds were moving over, covering the tress! It was like a dream! I could sit there for hours (until I freeze probably) and watch the clouds moving.

3. California State Fair – we were the first timers to the Cal State Fair this year. That only happened because I ended up buying a poppy pack (4 entry tickets, 4 ride tickets, 1 parking pass) that were being sold at work for dimes. So we went to the fair this year with two other friends of us. The brick of potato chips, deep fried cheesecake and a crazy ride made me sick (well almost) but it was fun! I might consider going there again next year.

I’m excited about Ann & Josh’s wedding next weekend. And then I will be traveling to the south for work and photoshoots! It’s going to be a super-busy-next-few-weeks, but that’s a good thing right?

  • Mariea Rummel: OMG, my world is complete now! We have a cupcake store in the area now! N, we need to met up for coffee and cupcakes ASAP. Sweeet!

San Francisco Engagement: Nicole & JP

They fell in love in New York; it was a love at first sight, as JP said. They travelled back closer to home and settled in San Francisco. It was a pleasure shooting with Nicole and JP yesterday. Nicole wanted to shoot at the Baker Beach in San Francisco where they often visit with Como, their three year old Golden Retreiver. I was hoping for a brighter day but, hey, we were lucky that fog wasn’t all over the bay!! The Golden Gate bridge was half covered with the cloud, but we managed to capture a few glimpse of it in the background.

Nicole is a natural beauty. Her smile and looks are to die for. I loved the playful and fun side of the couple. It just made their personality shine through the images. Summer is always cold in San Francisco, but that didn’t stop Nicole and JP from having fun. It was a joy chatting with them about travel, food and all the common grounds we have. I’m soooo looking forward to their wine country wedding in about a month. I know it’s going to be incredible! Now enjoy a few from Nicole and JP’s engagement session on the Baker Beach.

Trees are quite wild there…

Beautiful Nicole…I love this image!
