Justin and I are happy to announce that our little family has expanded by one - welcome to the world, Rory Reynard Souza! This little guy tagged along in-utero to multiple weddings in the 2015 season, so I think it's safe to say that he's a born photographer. We're thrilled that he's here, as is his older brother!
When Melissa booked a family portrait session, she had one request - that we shoot it at her family's almond farm in Riverbank during blossom season. Surrounded by lush wild grasses and a canopy of white flowers, the Lapeña family's love for each other had them practically glowing. And literally glowing, thanks to the sunset.Read More
There's nothing like a relaxed, goofy family portrait session to make a weekend sing! The Gantzer family brought great energy and hilarity to this autumn shoot out in the glowing orchards of Ceres, CA. In addition to the family portraits, mom Adriana also requested some individual shots of her daughter Ainsley, who just started kindergarten this past year. Apparently her school portrait didn't turn out the way they would've liked - which seems crazy to us, because look at how photogenic this sweetheart is. Thank you, Gantzers, for letting us be a part of your family's fun!Read More

The resulting photos are full of green leaves, leading lines and dramatic lighting from all that summer dust.Read More
