The Echeverria Family

Old Fair Oaks Village, CA

This family reached out to me after they saw a photo I took of my daughter’s overnight field trip on The Balclutha in San Francisco, posted on the school Facebook page. I knew their youngest from last year’s school production of Suessical the Musical (my girl is a theatre kid for sure) and it was fantastic to meet the rest of the family.

Mom, Kristin, and I had never met but I loved her right away and wish we had had more opportunities to run into one another at school. She has the biggest, broadest laugh, and such a carefree nature which genuinely rubs off on the rest of the family.

We had so much fun getting to know one another, walking down to the Fair Oaks Walking Bridge over the American River, and back again into Fair Oaks village. The weather was Fall-perfect.

Here are some of my faves…

The Barbin Family

Johnny Cash Trail, Folsom

Johnny Cash Trail photo session Rainbow Bridge  Folsom

Welcome back to the Barbin family who I last photographed in 2014.

I think it’s fair to say the kids have grown a bit in the last five years. As they generally do, of course, but I almost did a double-take when Abby stepped out of the car in Old Folsom a couple of weeks ago. That sweet little girl is now a gorgeous young woman!

In 2014 we explored the trails of Apple Hill. This year we walked the Johnny Cash Trail in Folsom, catching some beautiful light, and ending back riverside, near Rainbow Bridge.

We had a ton of fun along the way, as you can see. So awesome to be able to compare then and now…

Big Brothers Big Sisters Sacramento – 25th Anniversary

The local Big Brothers Big Sisters chapter is turning 25 and, in preparation for an upcoming anniversary celebration, the organization has been filming a video sharing the experience of what it means to be a big or a little. They asked me to join them a couple of weekends ago around the Capitol, following the crew and capturing matches on a fun-packed day hanging out at Capitol Park, playing Connect Four and Bowling at Punch Bowl Social, eating Haagen Dazs ice cream at Downtown Commons, and catching up on some reading at Sacramento Central Library.

I’ve been working with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Sacramento region for a few years now, creating images for their website and marketing materials; it’s some of my favorite work. I love that my images are used to highlight good work that benefits local children, and I enjoy bringing together my marketing knowledge with my photography experience, to deliver images that tell that story across platforms. It’s marketing with a heart and a purpose.

Although I’m sunsetting my family business this year, I still intend to work with nonprofits and want to pursue opportunities to work with businesses to help them with their branding. In short, I’m hoping to do more of this kind of work. So if you hear of anything…

In the meantime, enjoy these awesome matches having a blast!

Incidentally, if you’re local, you’d be right in thinking that a couple of these faces look familiar. Kevin John and Mayde Gomez both work for ABC10. Since I don’t have live/network TV anymore, I didn’t know they were tv-stars until later. Kinda embarrassing but regardless of their high-profile jobs, both were warm, gracious, and obviously fantastic Bigs. It was a pleasure to meet everyone.

Senior Session for Riley

Riley is a Senior graduating from Casa Robles this year. We celebrated his upcoming next chapter with a session in Old Folsom last week.

I had never met Riley before but know his mom, Heather. I found him to be charming and sweet, although I’m sure no teenage boy wants to be called sweet by one of his mom’s friends. He definitely has an “edgy” edge to him too that made him fun and easy to photograph, a cool swagger, comfortable in his own skin. But underneath you get that the essence of him is… sorry… yeah, sweet.

I tried to capture all the sides of Riley: sweet and savory.

Here are some of my faves.

Limited Availability this Fall

I have limited spots available through November 24th for sessions. Please get in touch soon if you would like to schedule a session for your graduating Senior, or your family this Fall.

Personal Branding Photos for Keilah

I met Keilah through her online business, Sacramento Sidetracks, which provides reviews and recommendations for families looking for fun things to do in the Sacramento area. I even photographed her family a few years back in this adorably fun session.

But now, when Keilah isn’t making sure local families are having fun on their days off, she’s busy making sure they find the home of their dreams as an agent at Lyon Real Estate in the Land Park office.

Keilah is full of positive energy and that comes out in how she markets herself; she has awesome promotional chops. When we met at a local coffee shop recently to catch up, she let me know that she would love to get some photos for her real estate career that helped clients get a sense of her warm and fun personality, with a variety of images for different marketing pieces like the custom oil paintings.

A couple of weekends ago we met at the Lyon Land Park office and ventured around Land Park’s beautiful neighborhoods to make that happen. Here are some of my favorites…

Orangevale Multi-generation double mini-session

I love that this family wanted to double-up on their mini session spot so they could capture grandparents and their grandkids together. In many families, like mine and this family’s, grandparents are a huge part of a kids’ life and the relationship they have together is so special, unique and different than the one between parents and their kids.

Moms and dads: when was the last time you included YOUR parents in a family photo?

Super love this family and their fun-loving nature and especially the challenge of trying to capture teenagers with some younger kids.

    You must be listen to your intuition first. Everybody has
    a psychic power, it is called our intuition or gut feeling.
    I usually search the net first by just using the search
    engines, but when it comes time truly pay with regard to
    the reading I always use my intuition. It hasn’t failed me though.
    In tarot reading, a psychic has many choices numerous Tarot propagates.
    There are some spreads which has been developed for use in a unique direction, others for more general psychic readings.

    Dylan wakes from a blackout, horny as hell, naked and stuck
    in a cage. Resulting in his frustration is the
    view of sexy wildlife officer Haley holding a gun on him.
    Even though he thinks Haley is crazy to insist the cage held a rescued wildcat,
    Dylan’s grateful to wake from another blackout in her home.
    If must have anyone to work with and assist you
    practice, consider joining remarkable the free psychic abilities groups are actually available close to internet.
    Pick one that holds various varieties of practice exercises with it’s members which can strengthen as many abilities as we
    possibly can.

    If are generally like me, in throughout the trouble we
    search for advice or answers for your dilemmas utilizing
    the tools which can be found to folks. One such tool currently inside the
    marketplace are sets of Angel Oracle cards. Just like the older tarot cards, Angel
    cards tap into unseen forces to provide guidance to the questions.
    psychic readings Reilly’s Rockets executive assistant Sherry Martin is coerced

    guy from her former life and now Reilly’s new VP of advertising.

    She comes face to face with Ethan and Sterling Lancaster, the notorious and gorgeous
    Lollipop Kings. That’s when Sherry discovers firsthand that there’s more than one way to lick the competition. Seinfeld
    is definitely the sexiest sitcom for the ’90s. It may be an example of the few sitcoms different it big with
    no real plot or motion. The entire series was sustained
    by Jerry Seinfeld’s comic observations of his well-known life along with the lives
    of his close friends.
