TWINS are in the house!

When the S Family called inquiring about a newborn session it didn’t come out right away that they were expecting twins.  As we chatted she shared that they were having twins, a boy and a girl.  Eeekkkk…I love twins.

The family opted for a Lifestyle Session.  For those of you that aren’t aware of what a Lifestyle Session is, it’s one which celebrates your surroundings as well as the people in it.   Lifestyle sessions are a slightly unique concept in photography.  This kind of session is more documentary – it’s about you, your child, your day  to day life.  It’s photojournalism with a creative twist.  It gives a sense of place and time and takes place at a location of your choice, typically your home. This location may also be your couch or your garden, or it may be a local beauty spot or a place that has special significance to you and your family.

If you are interested in a Lifestyle Session, you can contact me and I would love to chat with you!

Boeger Winery Engagement Sessions are awesome.  Yep, I said it.  It’s simply a gorgeous location and is perfect for a tasting of some really amazing wines before the session if you are so inclined.  Boeger Winery is this little gem is located in Placerville right off of Highway 50.

K+K were awesome to work with.  We had a lot of fun touring around the grounds and yes, they enjoyed some wine too!   And I just loved their “save the date” sign they brought to the session.  Isn’t that perfect!  And I couldn’t help but to include her Starbucks cup in the session as we all know how your local barista is practically family.  You know it’s the truth. :)

I can’t wait to work with these two again on their wedding day, it’s going to be amazing.

Donna Beck Photography,Roseville Family Photographer,

The B Family, Roseville Family Photographer

I always love to shoot in new places.  When the B Family asked if we could have the session in their backyard, ummm, heck yeah!  I really enjoyed this family and had fun with them too.

Here’s some information on Family Portraits…

How I approach sessions – Family portraits are often the best when we don’t try and make everyone look perfect!  I look for moments that fun and are genuine.  Everyone sitting together, laying around laughing or having a tickle fight… Mother and child staring at each other and making each other laugh… I typically always get photos with everyone looking at the camera but I will also do my best to capture some timeless, candid moments of your family.

Where sessions are located – I am available for photography sessions in your home, on location or in my Roseville studio.   My preference is to use natural light for photos so if your home is small or dark please consider the studio as it has beautiful natural light and lots of space.  I am also a big fan of on location sessions and have lists of places we can go.   Your portrait session will last around one hours to allow for an optional clothing change or  a snack breaks for children.  There is no rush and I fully encourage you to have fun and be yourself while I capture your family.

The dreaded…what to wear – I am definitely a blue jeans and white t-shirts kinda girl, but I encourage my clients to wear a variety of clothing with color and accessories.  I do provide some ideas for clothing inspiration if you so shall choose, just ask.  And don’t think this means a trip to the mall (unless it’s a good excuse for you too).  I always tell my clients to start with yourself, find a color in your closet that you love and build your outfit around it.    Textured fabrics like woolly sweaters and jackets work well.   Avoid logos or clothing with distracting patterns.  Have fun with it!

If you have any questions or would like to chat, please contact me and I would love to talk with you.

Team Envy, 2013-104.jpg

Roseville Sports Team Photography, Donna Beck Photography

When I got a call from a parent of a Roseville Competitive Soccer Team to take team pictures I was SO excited.  I love sports.  I grew up playing sports through college.  I love that it brings people together for a common goal and builds teamwork communication and yes, it’s fun.

But soccer?  Not my sport.  My dad once sponsored a co-ed team when I was like 10.  I was 1 of 2 girls that played on the team but I will say this, I really enjoyed it.  But my dad knew best and we left the season and went right back to sports that I wouldn’t make a fool of myself on the court or field.  Yes, I was THAT bad.

So having the opportunity to capture this awesome lady team of 12 fierce girls was a total honor.  And I am happy to say I am also a sponsor of the team!  Go Envy!

High Hand Nursery Wedding Photographer, Donna Beck Photography

Gavin and Kristi are a fun, animal-loving couple that’s free spirited and just love the outdoors.  We had a blast on their engagement session with their furry family.  You can check it out here.

So it only made sense that they picked a spot for their wedding as they did.  The High Hand Nursery is far from just a place to purchase flowers, trees and plants.   This place is gorgeous.  Stunning.  An absolute gem.  And it’s the perfect venue for a wedding.   Check it out…
