Harris Family Mini Session

Two friendly dogs greeted me at my car the moment I opened the door. Their beautiful home, just a few hundred yards from the American River , was glowing in the late afternoon sunshine. Marta's warm smile greeted me at the door, followed by her daughter Sierra. (Sierra is a senior and we plan to do her portraits this spring when the fruit trees are blossoming!) After a few moments all was finally ready, so we headed out in the pasture for some family photos. Their other daughter was unable to be there, unfortunately, so you only get to see part of their beautiful family! Even the donkey was following us around, wanting to get in on the fun so we obligingly let it participate... you know, in honor of the first Christmas and all!

Martin, Marta & Sierra - Thank you so much for letting me get a glimpse into your lives and capture some memories for you! I truly hope we can do it again sometime soon, where we can take more time and have some fun all together!



Anderson Family Portraits

Their happy smiles mingled with the occasional grimace from some; having to let an outsider take their photo on the most family oriented day of the year, Thanksgiving, I don't blame them... hey, I was keeping that Pumpkin Pie waiting! Seriously though, this is the biggest group I've done portraits for to date. It was so fun, but challenging to get all 40 eyeballs looking in the same direction at the same time and not blink! :) I think laying in the dirt finally got the squirmy ones' attention!

Chuck and Sheila had many many blessings to count this Thanksgiving! Their four children and their respective families all healthy, happy and loving the Lord - what more could one wish for?!

With this many people, I must apologize for the huge quantity of photos forthcoming... I tried to narrow them down! :)

Edde, Robin, and Rehn... the oldest son, and incidentally, my sister in law! :)

Aimee, Jason, Riley, Madison and Dalyn...

Keri & Sean, Christian, Leah & Mikayla...

Shawna & Joe, Hanna, Joseph, and Sarah

All ten grandkids... laughing at Auntie Keri doing crazy antics behind the camera!

After we finished up portraits, the kids split for more relaxing and day appropriate activities while all the girls started getting the meal on the table, in typical Anderson fashion. haha. :) I love that they were so comfy in front of the camera! (click on them to enlarge)

Thanks, guys, for the wonderful time! I had so much fun!
