Sweet Family shoot

Thanks to everyone who's sent me emails & phone calls about the new website! Your encouragements and kind words mean so much!!

At the end of October I went to Sacramento to shoot my best friend, Christina, and her family for their christmas cards. The plan was to shoot at their new house to get some fun, cute family shots and to show off how big the baby is getting. I thought about shooting in the street... maybe move the couch or chairs in the middle of the road. Instead of the couch we went with the bench on the front patio. The look on Dereald's face was hilarious when I told him my plan to shoot in the street. Just work with me here.

After about 20 minutes I knew we got some good stuff to use so we wrapped it up. Besides, Christina had to hurry off to open the bar. She and her brother own the Elixir Bar (also just voted by SN&R as the Best Dive Bar) in downtown Sacramento. After she left Dereald changed the baby's clothes and he put on a different outfit too. The plan was to get some daddy and baby shots to surprise Christina. When she opened her gift and found the framed photos she teared up. It was so sweet.

I'm so happy that I could do something like this for a friend who has done so much for me over the years.

If you are interested in having save the date/thank you/greeting cards made just let me know.
