Chico, CA Engagement Photography::Sam and Erin

Well, there is not much that I can say to add to the fun of this Engagement Session! I knew on my way to photograph Sam and Erin that it was going to be a fun evening. Erin is not only gorgeous but she is funny and has a way with making Sam turn into a puddle.:)You can tell how much he adores her. They’re beautiful together. Sam and Erin are a great couple and we feel so honored to get to photograph their Wedding in September. 
 Congratulations, you two! Can’t wait for your big day!! Thanks for being so much fun:)

Chico, CA Birth Photography:: Kate Elaine

April 15th, 2015
I can’t think of a better way to spend the morning of my birthday! This beautiful momma and her family hold a special place in my heart and are my first return Birth Photography clients! 
I feel so honored to have been invited in their family and their delivery room once again.
 There truly isn’t much sweeter than a daddy holding his girl for the first time!
Welcome to the world, Katherine Elaine. You are beautiful and are blessed to be welcomed into your amazing family. 

Brinley::5 Months

Oh, this girl has stolen my heart! Brinley is almost 6 months old and she is just a doll! She is rolling all around the room now and can’t be trusted around any toys or anything food-related. She tries to steal food off of our plates and puts everything in her mouth. The days of leaving her on the bed are over. She’s a mover! No crawling yet, thankfully. She is a happy, little roly-poly. 
She has found her feet and loves to grab them and has been found sucking on them as well. 
I’m not sure on her weight or length but will find out in a few weeks at her 6 month check up. She’s got cheeks for days so I’m not too concerned about a lack of weight gain. We haven’t started her on any solids yet and are waiting for a bit longer. She is getting close to sitting up on her own but we think her big ol’ head keeps weighing her down. Ha! She sleeps a consistent 10 hours at night, finally. I’m still struggling to get up with a cheery smile to greet her sweet squeals of excitement at 6am. We might never get there.:)
Don’t you worry…I nibble those thighs and kiss those chubby fingers daily.:)Brinley is my snuggle girl. She loves being in the Ergo and is now officially a tummy sleeper–that was the key to sleeping through the night, I think. She is a pretty happy girl, throwing her body back in excitement when she sees me, brother, or daddy coming towards her.
I’ve been told that she is a good mix of me and Travis and I think that’s pretty accurate. She makes some facial expressions that remind us so much of Brody. She has blue eyes like her brother. She is a bit more olive skinned than Brody is but is looking to be getting lighter hair now after losing most of her dark hair she was born with. I know we are completely biased, but we’re obsessed with this cutie.:) 
5 months have gone by pretty quickly–and that I am grateful for. That might sound bad but man, this transition to two kids was tough! Although I do consider myself to be a newborn lover, I’m thankful we are passed that stage. She’s a blast and we are enjoying these two kids like crazy! 
Thanks for following along!

Chico, CA Portrait Photography: Emma’s Cake Smash

I absolutely love getting to see my clients again and again! I can’t quite believe Emma is one year old–that means it has been one year since I was invited to photograph her birth and that is just crazy!!
Happy Birthday, sweet Emma Jean! You are a doll!!
Isn’t she the cutest?! Great job on the outfits, Mom! She is one stylin’ babe. 
Thanks again, H family!:)
