Napa Mini Sessions | Holiday Portrait Sessions | Napa Family Photographer

It’s that time of year again – and I love it!!!   Holiday sessions, mini sessions and full custom portrait sessions, this is the time of year that I get to revisit with the families I’ve met and photographed over the years, and also meet some new ones!!!   Sometimes new families all together, and often times, new additions to their families!  It makes me super happy, and very honored to be a part of documenting these wonderful families and the moments they create together.   I recently held mini sessions in Napa which included families I’ve photographed for 7 years (!!!) and one of my wedding clients with their new baby (so crazy cute!!!).  My heart was full & I was so happy with the results: lots of fun & silly & full of love images that they’ll have to share with their holiday greetings this year!

Below are just a few favorites!

I’m also hosting a few more mini session dates, so it’s not too late to reach out if you are interested!!

M Family | Napa Portrait Photographer | Napa Family Photographer

This is the 4th session I’ve had with this lovely family, in as many years!!   If you’ve followed my blog for that long, you’ll remember back to Max’s sessions from ages 1-3.  He’s a charmer & always full of laughter and smiles!!  It’s hard to believe how quickly time has flow by!  I have loved seeing their beautiful family grow, and I was so excited to meet Mona this time around!  She’s so smiley and sweet, just like her big brother Max!  Watching them both together made my day:  Max is a very good big brother!!  I love how much fun they all have together and how you can feel their connection coming through the images.

Here are just a few favorites from their session!

Dave & Lisa, thank you so much for continuing to invite me to capture your beautiful family!  Already looking forward to next year!!!

N Family | Napa Family Portrait Photographer | Napa Mini Portrait Session

I loved capturing this sweet little man and his fun-loving parents on one of my favorite oak tree lined lanes in Napa!  Looking at these images, the oak tree seems so appropriate.  One of my favorite gifts to give our friends with new babies is a little onesie with an acorn on it… under it says “I will be mighty.”  Makes me smile every time!  Go Teaghan!!!  SO happy to have met you!!

N Family, thank you so much for inviting me to capture this sweet time!  So fun to meet you all!

    Tim - love this wedding!

Kelly + Ian | Trentadue Winery Wedding | Geyserville Wedding Photography

When I met Kelly & Ian for their engagement session last summer, I loved how easy they were to be around and how sweet they were together.  Kelly has such an easy smile, warm heart and generous disposition, she makes everyone around her feel happy and included.  At their engagement session, we chatted like old friends, and I couldn’t believe how lucky we got with the timing of the light.  It all just seemed to fall into place.  Which leads me to one of my little life theories.  Now, I have no scientific data to prove this theory of course, but I do feel like when we’re on the right path, things really do fall into place and feel almost easy.  So it didn’t surprise me when we found that magical light again with Kelly & Ian, and that spending the day with them, helping them capture their sweet love, along with a wonderful group of family & friends… it all just felt right.

Here are just a few favorites from the day, or view their slideshow for more! (Images below are a mixture of digital & medium format film – Contax 645, Fuji 400h, scanned by The FIND Lab.)
