The Flower Farm Inn Wedding Photographer, Donna Beck Photography

I just loved all the details of this gorgeously perfect day.   T+A were inspired by a chalkboard theme which made things like a glass for your cold drinks fun and entertaining.  The theme was throughout the reception…photo booth, bar, reserved tables…you name it, chalkboard was everywhere.  I just loved it.

And there was a little surprise during the ceremony…a dove release!  It was gorgeous.  And did you know that the doves actually fly back to the house where they are boarded?  Crazy.  I always wondered how that worked.

And having a wedding at the Flower Farm Inn just is the icing on the cake.  It’s such a gorgeous venue and perfect for couples that want an outdoor feeling and still have the comforts of an indoor facility right next door.  If you haven’t already checked out The Flower Farm Inn, check it out…you won’t be disappointed.

Fall Gathering held at the Blue Goose, 2013-100.jpg

Cowpoke Fall Gathering, Loomis Event Photographer, Donna Beck Photography

This is the thrid year that I have donated my services to the Cowpoke Fall Gathering.  It’s an awesome weekend of fun with an event better cause called Tough Enough to Wear Pink that supports breast cancer research.

If you haven’t heard of Cowboy Poetry, you aren’t alone.  I know when I was asked to help with this event, I had no idea what it was all about.  But if you knew my dad, a true cowboy at heart, you would know why anything to do with a Cowboy caught my attention and after learning more about it I just had to check it out.  And I am so glad I did.

So what is Cowboy Poetry you ask?  Well, it’s a language all it’s own.  For many cowboys, sharing tall tales and weaving verse and rhyme was their only source of entertainment while sitting around a campfire after a hard days ride.  In this event it’s brought to life with many laughs and stories but can also bring a tear to your eye.

There’s some amazing performers, including retired 49ers football player Jeff Severson and world renound cowboy poet, Baxter Black.  It’s 3 days of non-stop fun, tradition and a time to celebrate one of my favorite icons, the Cowboy.

Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Barrow Family, 2013-110.jpg

The B Family, Roseville Family Photographer

I always love when families come out year after year to celebrate their families and how much kiddos change from year to year!

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.

Roseville Lifestyle Photographer, Donna Beck Photography

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!

Enjoy!

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!
