Wendy and Tim’s Perfect Wedding

Sunset, candles, twinkle lights… It was so pretty.  We just loved shooting your wedding Wendy.  A fabulous time was had by everyone.  You were so calm, cool and collected it was amazing.  Here’s a sneak peak of just a few of your memories captured.


Andrews SneakPeak

The wildflowers held out for us so we could get these incredible shots.  Even with the heat last week, so we are so thankful.   Thanks Bryce and Tristan for putting up with a very long hike and even a run at the end to catch sunset.  Your beautiful family portrait for the home will be enhanced with these fun shots.  Andrews Family, you are so fun and daring and outgoing.  I can’t wait for our next session.  Bryce, you are up for senior pics next!

For my photog friends, these images were taken with combination of reflector and portable flash units.  A shoot through umbrella was used on the family images.  The soft “last light” helped a bunch to get these fabulous colors at the flower field.  I metered the scene and then set the flash units for 1 stop brighter.  I could have done 2 stops brighter for a darker background.  I’ll do some adjusting and post artistic effects to make this family portrait a fine art piece.  For now, enjoy these straight out of the camera images.


Kids and Apples {Redding, CA Photographer}

Thanks Erin, Sean and family for a wonderful day out on the ranch.  The boys were so good and tons of fun.  It stills makes me laugh that Angel preferred the fresh green grass over the juicy red apples.  Enjoy this sneak peak of our day.


Proud Puppies {Redding, CA Photographer}

What a crazy fun two days of shooting.  The studio space I used was fantastic.  Thanks to Baas Physical Therapy. They Rock.  We had lots of puppies and with that comes giggles and smiles and sloppy dog kisses.  I was is in dog heaven.  Thanks to my dear clients who braved the adventure with me.  And a big thanks to Kelsie D, my assistant, who helped me pack it all up.  Whew. Here a few fun pics of the adventure.

Winter Wonderland {Redding, CA Photographer}

What does a photographer think when it is raining?  There must be  snow in them thar hills.  The Osbornes  braved the cold and the snow to get one-of-a-kind Christmas Magic for their Christmas Cards this year.   Some fresh snow and some christmas balls and we were off to the woods.     

What a magical scene.  The trees were just covered in powder and the snow was deeper than my boots.  We brought hot cocoa and christmas balls to hang.  The girls loved hanging the ornaments on the tree.  Someone might have said ‘Mush’ because we were bringing the equipment into the forest on sleds.  I forgot I like to lay down alot when I shoot and so my fleece pants were just covered with snow.  Yes, we took the ornaments down before we left.  Thanks for the great time my friends.  I love you guys.

Last day for Christmas Card sessions is Monday December 6th.  I have a few spots still open.  Call me on 339-5988.  Join my phototext service for a free 5×7 with your next sitting. text and data rates may apply.  text Vader and your name to 77007.
