Sadie is Two!

Welcome to my blog! I’ve decided to start sharing some of my sessions with you just give you a little background of each one. Enjoy!

I decided to start my blog with a return customer of mine, Maddy, Eli, and Sadie. Maddy approached me right before Sadie’s first birthday last year. I had such an amazing time photographing them last year. When Maddy contacted me again to take Sadie’s Two year old photos, and their Save the Date pictures, I couldn’t pass this opportunity up. We had originally planned to photograph their pictures back in April, but Chico decided to get an unexpected Thunderstorm that afternoon. We rescheduled for early June.

Maddy gave me the reigns to choose a location for their session. I chose Upper Bidwell Park to document this wonderful chapter in their life. As soon as they stepped out of the car, I noticed how simply beautiful Maddy looked in her blue wrap dress. The whole family matched perfectly, without being too much. As soon as we started taking photos, I knew this whole session was going to be directed by Sadie. It usually happens with toddlers. Sadie ran the session, literally, depicting our every move. She managed to fall down and scrape her knees a few times. I managed to turn those minutes of mom and dad consoling her into sweet bonding moments on camera. By the end of the session, everyone was happy but tired. The sun was setting, and Sadie had just about had enough of the camera.

Maddy and Eli, you have the most adorable family. I absolutely adore working with Sadie and find her so amusing. You have a strong, loving relationship. It really shows on camera. I cannot wait to see where your future takes you, and thank you for choosing me to document Sadie’s first years.
