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.

Rocklin Maternity Photographs: Sandra

A couple months ago I met with Sandra, Brandon and Kaitlin at their house for Sandra’s maternity pictures. Sandra was on her seventh month, but she knew that her baby was going to arrive weeks before the original due date. The Lynch family was prepared for the arrival for Baby Autumn Faith. The love in the family was undescribable. Brandon is a firefighter for the City of Sacramento. On his day off, he loves spending time with his daighter Kaitlin. I could see how excited he was for the new baby.

Kaitlin, the super cutre big sister, was a darling. She was showing me her toys and her princess bed. Sandra was glowing that day, she looked beautiful in the pictures. I was so happy to capture the time as the Lynch family waited for the newest addition to the family.

Sacramento Indian Engagement: Radha + Bala

My meeting with Radha and her family wasn’t an ordinary one. I’m usually very nervous when meeting with the families, but within five minutes of talking to Radha’s parents, I was smiling ear-to-ear. I had to pinch myself to realize that I really wasn’t dreaming. I learned that Bala can somewhat speak and understand Bengali. My husband came out to meet with them and I was asked to consider them like my family. After thirty minutes of chit-chatting I bacame Radha’s honorary older sister. I was honored, I felt loved and lucky again for the opportunities I receive through this gift of photography.

In morning of their engagement party, Radha and Bala along with their parents had an intimate puja (prayer) at Bala’s parents’ residence. After the prayer, we drove over to a lake near Elk Grove for Radha and Bala’s photo session. They were on their traditional outfit, we took that opportunity to get some fine Indian bridal styled shots. Then we ran around in the sun for some fun pictures. On the same evening, Radha and Bala’s made it official at Radha’s parents house. Bala got down on his knees to ask her to marry her in front of all the family members. Of course, Radha said YES!

Radha is such a sweet hearted girl! Her and Bala make a beautiful couple. I was so glad to be a part of their special day; and the fact that I now have a family in town made my experience even more special.

Sacramento Capitol Park Family Portraits: The Chafey Family

Talk about an adorable family with the most beautiful blue-eyed baby girl who is about to turn one, that would be the Chafey family. I met up with Melissa, Brandon and Caitlin last weekend for their family session at the Sacramento Capitol park. Caitlin made me want to drop my camera and just pick her up, she was that adorable! I met Melissa at Amanda & Tim’s wedding last year when she was expecting Caitlin. I was excited when she contaced me this year for taking pictures of her beautiful family. I had a great time hanging out with them and capturing their family moments.

Happy Birthday (soon), little Caitlin :) I hope I get to see you again and next time I’ll be sure to pick you up for a big hug…:)

Old Sacramento Enagagement : Raji + Rishi

What a fun shoot it was! Before going into this, I didn’t know that we would laugh so hard during the entire shoot. Rishi and Raji know how to have fun. The chemistry was infectious, I could see it in their eyes. I met Rishi and Raji a few months back when they were just starting out with the wedding planning. We felt the connection right away and I hoped to have the opportunity to photographed their wedding in a few months.

Last week we were in Old Sacramento photographing their engagement session. I was excited to explore the other side of Old Sac where I never photographed a session before. The weather was perfect for an afternoon in July. I couldn’t hope for the day to be any better. I’m so looking forward to having even more fun with them on their big wedding in October…can’t wait!

It’s LIVE!

I can’t contain my excitement!!! After 7 long months of hard work by the design team at Flosites, my newly branded website has launched. I love the new logo. Jenny Ambrose at Flosites did a beautiful job in creating a new branding for me. You can see a lot of personal elements in here. I wasn’t so sure if I could open myself up to the world like this. But, I think this gives out a lot about me. Up and comer videographers Bryce and Jesh at  Hello Lucid shot this fun video of us during a real engagement shoot that is also showcased on this site. I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. This site is really a true reflection of my personality.

I have to express my gratitude towards a few people here. THANK YOU Nicole Stagnaro, the amazing who I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the wedding for last summer, for providing me feedback for this site from the day one; Ross and the team at Flosites for putting up with me for the last 7 months and creating this beautiful design for me. You guys nailed it! My incredible clients, I couldn’t thank you enough for keeping my passion alive. I never knew I could do this, and I sure couldn’t have done this without you. THANK YOU for trusting me and bringing me in to your lives.

Cheers…
