Fall Family Sessions

Well I have been convinced 😉 After many people have asked about Family Sessions they are here!

These are not mini sessions and not quite full sessions either. I want to capture your family without having a time limit so we all have the best time! These sessions will be done locally in the Rocklin area and will been shot during golden hour (about an hour before sunset). Moms will have access to my studio wardrobe and I have limited amounts of clothing for children as well. As always any booking will get a style guide with guidance for your session. Dates are limited as I am only doing a limited amount of family sessions this year.

Available dates are 9/19, 10/1, 10/12, 10/17, 10/18 and 10/30. Session fee of $299 is due at the time of booking to confirm your session. $299 covers the session fee and 10 digital images, add $100 for the entire gallery.

Please email to book or with any questions you might have.

Here are some images from a recent family session 🙂

Because you can’t go wrong with a simple white cake and some sweet florals! This was a sweet and simple cake smash session with a boho vibe. She was so sweet even when her siblings were eating her cake!

Capturing milestones like these are so fun. Going back to these images years from now is such a treasure for you and generations to come!

Light and Airy Maternity Session | Roseville Maternity Photography

One of my goals for 2019 is to be better about blogging my sessions. I love sharing sweet images with you especially from maternity photography sessions. It is such an honor to be able to document these moments! I love the way this session turned out. I was also lucky enough to do her newborn photography session as well. Stay tuned for that!

Did you know that have several maternity gowns and dresses you are able to wear during your session and help with styling the rest of your family? Everything you see here is part of our studio wardrobe!

Fun fact: I won a award for an image from this session 🙂
