Prior to my life here in beautiful Beaverton, Oregon I lived in Sacramento, California. When I left Sacramento, one of the many things that made leaving hard, was moving away from my amazing clients. Many of these families I had photographed maternity sessions and newborn sessions and family sessions. I had watched their children grow up through my camera lens and they had become my friends. After I got settled here in Beaverton and re-launched my business I had the sudden realization that those relationships didn’t have to end because I have AIRMILES! And I had an abundance of places to stay in Sacramento for FREE! So… earlier this year I booked a bunch of Sacramento mini-sessions and went down for a weekend and shot them all back-to-back. It was SO much fun! First I shot this amazing family at their home! AND they even put me up for a night! See what I mean… they are clients and friends…
The following morning I went downtown and met up with this awesome mother and her two boys! We shot around the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament and along K Street. Her boys were seriously the sweetest most adorable dudes ever and she told me afterwards that her oldest cried when I left because he wanted to hang out with me longer. Melt. My. Heart. See what I mean? My Sacramento clients are the best!
Then I went and shot three more back-to-back sessions at the Sacramento Horseman’s Association. I love shooting there because it is so picturesque with the barn and trails and golden evening light. And I got to hang out with these amazing families… all three of which have twins! It doesn’t get much better than that!!
I am heading back for some more Sacramento mini-sessions in September, as well as photographing a wedding with my awesome friend DeAnna Gallardo Photography. Five more sessions and a wedding will prove to be an extremely busy weekend, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! How fabulous that I get to hang out and take photos of all these amazing people and get paid for it! Best. Job. Ever.
