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.

Enjoy!

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!

Enjoy!

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…

Enjoy!

Baby C, Roseville Newborn Photographer, Lifestyle Session, Donna Beck Photography

I love this.  This call is always one of my favorites.  Brandon + Chelsea were wedding clients of mine a few years ago and getting a phone call from my brides + grooms that they are expecting (you can see their maternity session here) and have had their baby…I am happy beyond belief.

Brandon & Chelsea chose to have what is called a lifestyle session.  What’s the difference you ask?  All of my studio sessions are conducted in my in home newborn studio in Roseville, California.  I have everything here that I need in order to provide you with a great experience for your baby’s first professional photo shoot.  My studio is full of all of the props, back drops and posing tools that we need.  The space has great light and is small so that it can be kept nice and warm to keep your baby comfortable during his or her session.   All in all it’s a great place to come for your newborn photo session.

However the thought of travelling with a newborn can be daunting for some new parents.   Lifestyle newborn sessions are conducted in the comfort of the clients home.  Having your photo session take place in your home provides a level of intimacy and a personal touch to your lifestyle images that might be missing from your studio session.  Imagine having images of baby in her own nursery or snuggling with Mama in their favorite chair.  Documenting beloved books, toys and that surely wonderful wardrobe some babies acquire before they are even here?!  These small details make your newborn’s photos even more special for years to come!

If you are interested in more information you can contact me and I would love to chat with you!

Enjoy!
