Balancing life is hard enough when all you have to think about is yourself. But when I think of my friends the Herricks I really look deep down inside and hastag myself #firstworldproblems. Two beautiful children, a beautiful home, and a beautiful couple comprise the family of super-humans I was privileged to photograph. Samantha makes it looks so easy being a mom of a two year old and a newborn baby boy. Her effortless style in these newborn photos doused in natural light from their Elk Grove home are reflective of what seems to be a pretty easy-going and entertaining lifestyle. I mean… a photo shoot and 2 year old birthday all in one day, and only 10 days after newborn James was born. There has to be some sort of superhero power for that! Even grandma took such beautiful carefree photos that I felt like this day was a breeze for myself while 2 year old Ava’s birthday party was going on. Well it may not be as easy as I imagine, however the Herrick family portraits are some of my favorite photographs I have every taken.

August 25, 2014 Bidwell Family Outing
Back again in Chico, California where no matter what time of year the beauty is immense. Through the dry, hot summer Bidwell Park manages to hold on to its greenery as most of it is protected by its heavily covered ivy trees that reach far up into the skies. I am so lucky to have the chance to capture their family portraits of the Milardovich family as they expand from 3 to 4. They welcomed another baby girl into their family. She has the most beautiful eyes that stand out so strikingly.
April 9, 2014 Baby Blue Eyes
Alexa’s personality is already shinning through with her adorable looks. Those many different looks she had were so cute to catch and she was already proving that one day she could be a model. Her bright blue baby eyes never left the camera lens. Alexa sure knew how to work the camera angles! Her lovely little faces were so easy to capture and she practically pushed mom to the side so that she can have her moment in the spotlight. Oh Alexa, you are going to grow up to be a heart breaker!
August 7, 2012 Beauty Babe
If only I could live all my adventures the way little Mya does. She is so spirited and never stops going similar to a little white bunny. Well Mya in her cute white pants and floral top couldn’t be any cuter as she ran around her Grandparents backyard. Although, Mom wanted to keep those white pants as clean as possible she wandered around adventurously, having me trying to capture every moment of her curiosity. Luckily I was able to capture a moment of stillness as she looked right into my lens and I caught those beautiful blue eyes.
You would get lost in those big blue eyes. After running around for a while we took the opportunity to take some maternity shots with Mya and her Mom’s very pregnant belly with her new baby sister inside.
Mya new exactly where her baby sister was!
Some of the cutest Mom and daughter maternity photography I have ever done.
May 15, 2012 Two of a Kind – Sneak Peak
In this family beautiful eyes must be in the genes. Previously, I did a photo shoot with baby Emma’s older sister Mya before she was born. Mya, the little Beauty Baby, had the most gorgeous expression that I have ever been able to capture in a child. But sister Emma is giving her a run for her money with her deep blue ocean eyes. Here is just a sneak peak at those deep blue eyes.
