{Mr & Mrs Jeff McNeil: 10/10/10}

One of the groomsman had a wonderful speech about how 10 is what we all see on a scale of 1-10 as being a perfect score.  He was definitely right with Jeff and Stacey!  A beautiful bride, A handsome groom, A beautiful day, A beautiful venue and a mass of beautiful family & friends that surrounded Jeff and Stacey on THEIR perfect day….10-10-10.

Jeff & Stacey were married at Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma.  A new location for me and a very cool one at that!  Cornerstone has it’s ‘style’ built around interesting pieces of art, small and large.  Oddly placed statues, but in a really cool way, that made for the grounds of Cornerstone to be super fun to experiment with.  There were lots of fun colors and textures to work with and of course, a fabulous bride & groom to photograph!

Brian and I had a blast working with Jeff & Stacey and I wish them absolute happiness in their lives together!  Congrats guys!

Here are some of my favs from their day!  Njoy!

{The Green Family Portrait}

I think it’s every other year that we get together and take an updated Family Portrait with my husbands family.  This year went really well and we had some fun with it too!  I took most of the pics, but have to thank my handy 10 second timer on the camera for the ones with the whole fam that I jumped into!  Here are a few of my favs from our little session…the best is the first one of all of us with our goofy faces!  We’ll have to try and top that one in two years now. LOL!

{The Giroux Family & Carleigh: 1 Year Old}

Jenn is the sister of some good friends of ours.  I started working with her over 3 years ago when she asked me to photograph her wedding and when I found out they were expecting, I was excited to photograph their growing family!  So, we met up in Vacaville for some updated family portraits, but also because their little munchkin is now turning one year old soon (which I cannot believe!) and we combined their family session with some pics of just Carleigh for her 1 year!  I can remember when she was just a few weeks old and we photographed her inside a stocking for Christmas…too cute for words.  Now she’s this little toddler, very mobile, very curious and very adorable!  I appreciate all the opportunities at photographing my clients families as they grow each year…it’s part of what makes my job super fun and super addicting!  Like I mentioned in a previous post, I love photographing the kiddos and seeing them grow and capturing those real moments for moms and dads is very rewarding!

Njoy a little of the Giroux Fam!

{The Peterson Family}

Apparently, in the past few years, since I have lived in Rocklin, most of my really good friends have come about thru some sort of business venture…first Pottery Barn Kids, then Photography.  Meet the Peterson Family.  Do they look familiar?  Well, if you have been following my blog for a while…or at least since May, you may recognize Doug and Carol from their fabulouso wedding in Maui!  But this time, it was Mom’s turn to get some updated family pics for the walls.  So, I met Doug, Carol, Damon & Donna out in Roseville for a session.  Oh and back to the whole work related friendships thing…got a little off the subject there for a minute (if my husband reads this, he’d say ‘yep, thats tiff, constantly switching subjects, talking all over the place’ hahaha)…but my dad referred Carol to me over a year ago for her Engagement Portraits.  We have become really good friends and part time coworkers since, as she helps in the office sometimes.  I have to thank dad on that one!  Thanks Dad!

Enough rambling…here are some of my favs from their session.  And since we’re nearing the holidays, the Peterson Family gets to be the first blog post with Christmas Music!  Yay!  If you know what the song in the slideshow below, is from, be the first to email us with the answer and we’ll give you a Holiday Gift!  Njoy!

{The Williams Family}

How funny, I am sitting here thinking about how I met Jen Williams and just realized that PBK wasn’t just a 1/2 year, part time job, that I really enjoyed and where I got discount on all my baby goodies…it was where I met some really good friends, so I am going to take a moment to thank PBK because I appreciate the friendships made while I worked there!  Thank You PBK!  You rock!

So, as you can probably figure out, I met Jen while working at PBK as well!  She had her little man, Ryder at the time and he was probably about 8 months or so.  Just about the time I left to go on maternity leave, she found out she was prego with little munchkin number two!  Long story short, I ended up doing some maternity pics for Jen when she was expecting Makenna and it became a very consistent thing from that point on, to become the Williams Family Photographer!  I love these guys, they are such good people and Jaxon loves his playdates with Ryder and Makenna!

Now, we’re a few years in and I look forward every year to photographing the Williams Family!  These are some of my favs from their most recent session.  Njoy!
