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 Family Portraits: The Bilardellos and the Hills

Meet my favorite family – The Billardellos, including the Hills (a Bilardello who became a Hill through the marriage to a Hill [who also goes by Sean] and formed their own family comprising Katie and Sean Hill. Is this confusing enough?) My story with this family goes all the way back to 2009 when I was contacted by Katie (now a Hill) to photograph her wedding to Sean in the spring of 2010. I photographed their wedding a year later and met with Katie’s family on the very same day. Little did I know that I would get so emotionally attached to them. That night after the wedding, I secretly wished to run into them in the mall or in a random Japanese buffet (again) so that I get to see them again.

The love this family has for each other is infectious. One can’t help but spread this to another. I can’t speak enough of Katie who makes me feel like a queen (yes, I can’t find a better word) everytime I get in touch with her, be it in person, via email or on facebook. I don’t know what I have done to deserve so much love. But I’m thankful that I have it and I sure am not giving up any of it. It brings tears of joy to my eyes to know that my passion has brought me so close to this family who makes me feel like their own. I can only hope to grow with this family as they grow and include new additions to their tree. It was such an honor to capture these images for them yesterday. Here’s is to many more of such happy memories…
