"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully," Romans 12:6-8

The Smith Family

Today was a great day! I woke up to the sun shinning, my running shoes calling, and feeling so incredibly blessed. Blessed to have a loving husband, a supportive family, caring friends, great clients and a faithful God. This last month has been so busy--- full of moving into our first home, settling into my job, and great photography sessions. I was blessed again today by another great family. This morning I spent time with the Smith family. Our session took place at Chico State, which of course never disappoints. This family was so great. Molly, is a precious little girl. Here big brown eyes, charming smile, and personality made this session so much fun. From spending one hour with them today, I know that there is so much love in their home. Thanks for allowing me to capture your family today.

Baby Roman

Today I had the pleasure of meeting Baby Roman for the first time! This little guy was born weighing four pounds and change--- and let me tell you, he is one cute little guy. His grandma refers to him as “the peanut warrior”, small but mighty. He came out ready to take on the world and do big things. His mom, dad and older brother are so good with him, and it was great to spend time with them today. I am always so excited when I get to work with little ones--- babies and photography--- what could get better. Here are a few from our time together today. Thank you so much for allowing me to come and capture this special time in your lives. Enjoy.

Grau Family’s Maternity Session

Last night I had the privilege to take pictures of the Grau Family. Stacy and I became friends while in Nursing school. When she asked if I’d take her maternity photos, I was so excited!! It was so fun to witness their family interact together and see their excitement for the addition of a baby girl. During our session it was so clear how much love and compassion are present in their home. As a family, they have so much fun together, and it was so refreshing to be a part of. Stacy and Cory are great parents who show so much love, support and guidance to Caiden, and have no doubt his sister will be just as blessed. Caiden will be a great big brother, and can’t wait to teach his sister everything he knows. Thank you Grau’s for blessing me with our time together last night! Stacy, you are a glowing, beautiful mom. Enjoy!
