Roseville Back to School Mini Sessions, Donna Beck Photography
So it’s that time of year…school picture time! For me, it’s dreaded. I am not a fan of the colored backdrops. And it never rails that they are calling my kid’s classroom right after she played wall ball at recess and now her hair is a mess. So what is a photographer to do? Simple, back-to-school sessions!
And I love to make these sessions quick, fun and also a way to capture that special time in your kiddo’s life. So I always encourage students to bring something they love…a soccer ball, a band instrument, their favorite game…whatever they enjoy and we incorporate them into the session too.
If you are wondering what a mini-session is, it’s a shorter version of a custom session that moves at a fast pace focused on getting the shots that are most important to you. Because it’s a shorter session it’s typically focused on capturing things like a cute phase, new photos for Grandma’s birthday, back-to-school pictures, or an updated family portrait for holiday cards.
I do offer mini-sessions at least 2 times per year typically focused on Back-to-School Mini Sessions and Holiday Mini Sessions and occasionally offer mini-sessions for Valentines Day and/or Easter too. If you are interested in more information, you can contact me here.
Oak Ridge High School Senior Photographer, Donna Beck Photography
I love shooting High School Seniors. They are proud, happy and above all…EXCITED! It’s such an important milestone in the whole families lives and deserves to be captured in a way that represents the high school graduate.
Meet Jordyn. This one is a special girl to me. She’s my niece and I couldn’t be anymore proud of her as she’s headed to Fullerton to major in Math. And I admit, I have NO clue what the equation is on her chalkboard.
So I am constantly asked what can I expect during a high school senior session. I have to laugh as there’s no one answer. So I always put it like this…
Be unique…be YOU! Your senior portraits should capture you just how you are! I really strive to show your interest and personality. So if you play an instrument, bring it. If you are an equestrian, let’s go ride horses. Your session will not be stiff and formal, my goal is to have FUN!
If you’d like to chat more about a High School Senior Session, please contact me and I would love to talk more with you.
Roseville Mayor Susan Rohan, Roseville Headshot Photographer, Donna Beck Photography
It’s not often I get the opportunity to meet, what I could call, a local celebrity. So when my phone rang and it was The City of Roseville’s Mayor, Susan Rohan, I was speechless. Probably like a girl getting a call from Justin Beiber. LOL.
But really, it was a total honor to work with Mrs. Rohan. She’s professional, easy to talk to and a good person. We are lucky to have her in office. So take a sneak peek at some of her headshots to be featured in her upcoming campaign!
And if you don’t know much about her contribution to Roseville, here’s a few things Susan is a member of the Roseville Chamber of Commerce, the Blue Line Arts Board, the Placer County Community Advisory Board for Sutter Hospital, Soroptimist of Roseville, the Advisory Board for Keaton Raphael Memorial, the Friends of the Roseville Public Library, the League of Women Voters of Placer County, and the Salvation Army Roseville Advisory Board. Being the wife and mother of Sacramento State grads, Susan helps the Alumni Association in Placer County with membership events. She is proud President that Alexander Gonzalez calls her “Honorary Alum.” She is a strong advocate for the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations and a founding member of the South Placer Women’s Leadership Coalition.
And if you are interested in updating your professional headshots please give me a call at 916.847.9816 or contact me and we can chat about it.
Roseville Family Photographer, Cake Smash Session, Donna Beck Photography
One year old sessions are one of my favorites. These young kiddos are full of life and enjoying every minute of it. There’s always a lot of smiles and giggles and I tend to let kids do their thing and engage with them and in no time flat we get some great shots.
And I love to celebrate “the big one”, it’s such a big milestone for not only these kiddos, but the parents too and what better way to celebrate than with a cake to smash!
Funny thing was that for the first time we had a 1 year old that wanted nothing to do with the cake. It’ was hilarious. Baby B was almost more interested in sitting in it than eating it. Normally kids go to town on a cake smash but this little guy had never had cake before. Turns out, he’s not a big fan.
But that didn’t stop us from running around the park and having some fun with mom and dad.
