Boughtin Baby Love: Styled Valentine’s Day Shoot

I strongly feel that when you surround yourself with positive and creative people, you can’t help but be influenced by their nature.

I thrive off of the friendships I have created in this industry and it’s always fun to find that new smiling face that’s right around the corner.

I recently met with Cady of Boughtin Baby and Bride and instantly took to her charisma and passion behind her new business.  The creator of custom baby onesies and more, this gal has amassed quite a following in such a short amount of time.  I fell in love with her unique designs and creativity she had flowing – and I don’t even have little babes anymore!  The wardrobe styling and vendors she highlights are adorable!

Have a looksee at the Valentine Day mini shoot we put together.  And THEN – don’t miss the giveaway going on over on her blog!

Cady Boughtin - Thank you so so much for this amazing opportunity and I will recommend you to everyone I know. I can’t wait for the next chapter of this project with you!

Twosday Blog Link Up: Crushin’ On…

You should come by and smell my house right now, it smells divine.

Thanks to Kelley and her hand poured yummy Candelles.

That there is Fig and Sugar, in case you were wondering.  And Lavender and Sage tarts are warming up in my bathroom right now.


Speaking of swoon.  Yellow Bungalow Shop.

I heart you.

These are in my office now but intended location will be either the kids bathroom, their hallway or maybe my daughter’s room.

Decisions, decisions…

Maybe I will just have to grab more!

Before we go shopping, be sure to head on by my friend Stephanie’s blog and sigh over her film edits with me, won’t you?

Jeff + Ashley: Vacaville Engagement Portraits

I suppose my time had come.

With all the time I spend wandering back roads and traveling open spaces, I was due.

Due to encounter all that nature has to offer, like ticks, stinging nettle, crazy raccoons, and snakes.

You know, large, quick king snakes.


Jeff + Ashley, Duke and Jaxson, you know I sincerely adore you when I don’t go fleeing in the opposite direction and cancel the shoot when a snake decides to photobomb.

But don’t worry friends, we steered clear and no cute couples or pups were harmed in the making of these photos.


Luca Turns 2: Napa Valley Portraits

You may not know that I challenge 2 year olds to sword fighting duels and dig for bugs on photoshoots.

It comes free with the session.

The cutie on the blog today is my friend, Luca.  He turned 2 and I had the joy of capturing all the fun that is a 2 year old.

But first, I had to share a little recap of Luca’s early years.

It doesn’t get more classic than, ‘where’s your nose?’ and ‘show me your muscles!’

See, told you I sword fight.

Don’t worry, I let him win.

Cool cat to the tenth degree.

And of course every birthday needs a cupcake!

Thanks for partying with me Luca boo!
