So, here I am again stating the obvious that a new blog post is LONG overdue…we are not even going to talk about how long it has been. Yikes. I have trying to balance family, work and life and that leaves little room it seems for keeping up with my site, unfortunately. I have so much to blog and with this now being my slower months I hope to update as much as I can! I do keep up with Facebook more often so if you do not follow me already you can HERE.

This is Candace a high school senior that I had the chance to work with at the ever so gorgeous White House venue here in Redding.  She is gorgeous inside and out. Her smile is infectious and you can see the joy and love just pouring out of her. Thank you Candace for letting me share these moments with you!






I am finally getting around to sharing this lovely session with Shelly and John. They made the brisk morning fade away with the heat in this session! Loved the connection they share and was so thrilled to capture it!

Just a few frames from our fun family picture day. I had so much fun just snapping most of the entire time we were there, caught some hilarious things. That is what it is all about.


.local love. [country organics]

Today is yet another edition of my local loves. I love being able to share with others wonderful local things that I believe in, there are really so many amazing little shops and products in our amazing city.

So, today I am featuring Country Organics. The owners Bob and Mandy are friends of ours, Bob and I go way back to our days of working together at Raley’s…..or should I say YEARS of working together there. He was the “produce guy”, and still is just in his own amazing store. Country Organics DELIVERS local organic produce to your DOORSTEP each week. Talk about amazing! They also now have a store front so rather than having a delivery you can go in pick and choose each item AND pick up other organic items from their shelves. I do not know how many times i am out of ONE item, and they seem to have everything right there…it is convenience at it’s best. They carry local Hat Creek beef at an incredible price, it is something that always makes it into my basket. I really cannot say enough great things about this small but rather AMazing business! You MUST go in! Great service, and products! You can get all the info HERE.

OH, and just in case you are wondering. I happen to love this place i call Redding, so i bring you all these local loves ALL on my own. I am a firm believer in sharing the great things i find to others so you too can enjoy amazing things…so NO i am not getting paid in any form to do these. 🙂



Had the wonderful privilege of capturing Liz and John’s wonderful wedding day. The wedding took place in Weed Ca with a spectacular view of Mt. Shasta directly behind them as they said their vows! They rented a cabin to host the reception, so quaint and perfect along with a huge fire pit and smore fixings it was them to perfection. This is my second wedding for the Rhodes family, and I just adore each one of them.  Liz was a stunning bride, and is an incredible person…I don’t think I have ever seen her without a huge smile on her face. Such a joy to be able to capture such happiness in a couple!

Thank you Liz and John for including me in your special day!

Special thanks to Gwen (the amazing coordinator) for making the day go so smoothly!
