k family | sacramento, ca

I always joked that when Cruz was born that he didn’t know any different than 2 little faces smiling and talking to him at all times from the time he first opened his eyes.  This sweet girl has experienced the same thing – she has two big sisters who absolutely adore her, and parents that are so happy that she has arrived.  I loved being invited to be a part of this.  The newness, the tiny features, and the love that is quiet but abounding.  Grandma was all hands on deck helping wherever needed, so I had her jump in for a few at the end.  Sometimes they are the hidden angels that support us moms at this exhausting time and give unending love to our babies.  I almost forgot K had a c-section because she was up for whatever and even went on a little walk outside – next time we’ll do more lying down shots!!  xo

This summer the Thompsons welcomed baby Bowie, so we gathered to capture their new family of 6! I love seeing the interactions of all your relationships and the joy that comes from happy parents and kids.  It’s not about perfection, it’s about knowing how deep the well of love is.

Oh man, what a way to wrap up November! Taking all these family photos, gathering with my own family and eating delicious food…and finally meeting up with Michelle super early this morning for some no kids shopping – a perfect start to the weekend.

Loved hanging with you guys – I love that you picture these photos on your walls before they’re even shot. You have no idea how happy that makes me.

Just a few from a party for little Morgs’ first birthday…I loved all the little design touches Nicole put together and it was so fun to join this family in celebration of the sweetest baby girl.  Only my twin friends would have a son that climbs a tree so high we need grandpa to get him down, a baby riding on an elderly walker, cake that I’m halfway done serving when grandma calls out – oh no, nobody is supposed to eat that! and italian sandwiches that i’ve been missing so hard in sac.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  Cherish your friendships!  They really do make life greater.

What an amazing job I have that allows me to ‘work’ with so many people I love.  I’ve known Alexia since kindergarten, along with her twin (who’s coming up next), and we did a mini shoot last weekend. Love eating and laughing with you guys – let’s do it again soon!

Because relationships are the heart of the home, I love to shoot there.  I will look for pretty light. We will toss all random items aside to make a clean slate. And I will gather your family together (possibly tighter than you’re used to!) to document what I see.

Baby Matthew is the latest addition to some of my dear friends, the Evans family.   Being the last, he was welcomed by so many excited faces.   Mimi told me that someone recently saw baby M and said that he had an old soul and was waiting for so long to come down to earth.  How amazing to think of our babies…why they were gifted to our families specifically.  What they are to learn from us, and us from them.   He was absolutely perfect and didn’t make a peep.   Apologies for the mass amount of baby kisses!
