Donna Beck Photography Awarded Wedding Wire’s 2013 “Brides Choice” for Wedding Photographer in Lake Tahoe and Sacramento Wedding Photography!

Donna Beck Photography awarded 2013 "Bride

I am so honored and humbeled to recieve this award again for both Lake Tahoe and Sacramento Wedding Photography!  Eeeeekkkkk!  Take a look at my awesome brides and grooms and what they had to say here.  A big “thank you” to all of my awesome clients for helping make this happen!  Y’all rock!  Sacramento Wedding Photography

If you want to know a little more about me…  Sacramento Wedding Photography

I am a mom to two amazing, spirited little girls and the wife to a wonderful husband. Family is my life. I’m grateful for life, I’m grateful for family, and I’m grateful to be doing what I love along my journey.

Photography began for me as a scrapbooker years ago. I was always chasing my kids around with my camera in hand. I began to really appreciate and study the technical and creative aspects of photography and so this story began and here I am today. I am very proud that my hard work has awarded my business with “Best of Wedding Photography” from The Knot and Wedding Wire and has also been published in several blogs and Style Magazine featuring both weddings and family sessions.  Sacramento Wedding Photography

And let’s see, what else do I love? I love to bake, not cook. Two very different things in my world. My husband is the cook. I am actually not allowed near the kitchen unless I am cleaning it or baking. And I can’t believe I am about to share this, but I once I set off a smoke alarm boiling water…definitely not my proudest moment. So let’s just say you’d much rather me take your picture than cook your Thanksgiving dinner. But when it comes to making the dessert…I’m your girl!

I would love to chat with you more about your photography needs! Feel free to either give me a ring at 916-847-9816 or fill out the contact form at www.donnabeckphotography.com and I look forward to talking with you!

I had such a wonderful time with this family!  We started at a local Roseville park for their family session on a gorgeous fall day.   All were dressed in their Sunday best for some holiday pictures.

We also headed to downtown Roseville for a change of scenery.  We had some fun with a more urban setting and took in the vibrant colors and textures in the area.  It was so sweet to see the boys with each other.  Big brother was so good, helping his younger brothers get ready for the pictures and all.   And don’t you just love their outfits too! I am a total fan of the yellow right now and just love how mom pulled it off with her adorable green scarf.

And how about mom and dad!  I just love it when parents get together for some playful pictures.  They were awesome and were up for anything.

Thank you C Family for a great day of fun!

Enjoy!

The M Family, Roseville Family Photographer, Donna Beck Photography, holiday mini sessions

So I have a lot of clients ask about Mini-Sessions and if it’s right for them or not.  Well, here’s a quick post about Mini-Sessions along with some pictures from the M Family that they took during their 30 minute 2012 Mini-Session this past holiday season to let you see some examples too!

Mini Sessions are great for many of my clients.  They are quick, focused and easy.   It’s perfect for the family that wants one gorgeous family portrait to hang on their wall and pictures of each kid individually and of course a few shots of mom and dad too.  Normally there’s about 25-30 proofs to choose from during the 30 minute session.   It’s great for those families that are really busy and just can’t seem to find the time for a full session.

But Mini-Sessions aren’t for everyone.  If you have little ones that may need some time to warm up in front of the camera, this may not be the perfect fit for you.  Or if you want more poses and have a large family, a full session would be better suited.  Full sessions last up to 90 minutes and give you much more variety.

To have a Mini-Session or not?  Need help deciding?  Let me know and I am happy to share more insight with you to make the right choice for you and your family!  Drop me a line at 916.847.9816 or email at donna@donnabeckphotography.com and we can chat.

Enjoy!

I love this family.  And yes, I love a lot of families.  This is the type of family that you love to spend time with.  That raises their kids in a way that you strive for.  They are all amazing with big hearts.  Did I mention that I just love this family?

And I couldn’t have been more excited when they pulled up for the Holiday Mini Session in their western get-ups.   I admit, I’m from a small town that has country written all over it.  I am a sucker for a pair of wranglers and a good ‘ol cowboy hat.

So a big thank you to the P family for making their way out today and making my day a bit brighter.

Enjoy!
