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.

Meadow Vista photographer || Jackie & Drew

Oh sweet summer! It’s the time of the year to hold outdoor parties! Recently I had a chance to shoot a baby/wedding combo celebration party hosted by a very special man, Bob Whitson. It was s party for Bob’s son Drew and beautiful Jackie. Bob is pretty much the root of the reason I’m here in California. Let me just say that he co-founded a high-tech start-up in Roseville and I happened to get a job there, which resulted in me moving to Nor Cal, and that made Jason to leave his job in KS, move here as well with a job in the same company, then we got marrried on the same day when Bob celebrates his wedding anniversary. See the connection here? It’s that simple.

I was thrilled and surprised when Bob contacted me to photograph Jackie and Drew’s event. I almost couldn’t believe it! It was such an honor! Thank you, Bob, for trusting me my technical and artistic abilities

The party was held at the Whitson’s enormous backyard! I loved all the colorful details Sandy picked out to create a great summer theme. The gumball machines as favors, delicious grilled cheese sandwiches, sliders, korean beef, love blossom seeds, the Salsa band, umbrellas, popcorn, snow-cones and what not! It was a beautiful celebration for Jackie and Drew. Jackie is super sweet, she is funny and loves to laugh. I’m so glad that I got to know her a bit that day. She was fun to talk with and she played along so well the whole time with her 8-month baby-belly! This is an exciting time for the Whitson family and I wish Drew and Jackie the very best.

Beautiful Jackie.
