Dahlia turns 1 - Redding, CA Family Photographer

This adorable little girl is Dahlia and she is celebrating her first birthday! What perfect timing for a photo session too...because WILDFLOWERS! Anyone who knows me knows that I am completely obsessed with wildflower season. Dahlia's mother and I had originally planned on taking her portraits at the Turtle Bay gardens. But on my way home the day before her session I spotted this perfect patch of Blue Bonnets so we switched things up. It's not too often that these beautiful flowers grace the north state so this was quite the treat!

But it get's even better! As we were driving out to the Blue Bonnets I spotted this little grove of spectacular red flowers. I don't know what they are, but man are they gorgeous! We were so lucky to catch them. Every time I've seen them they only last for about 2-3 days. Then they disappear as fast as they had appeared.

If you recognize this little girl it's probably because she is one of my Baby Plan participants. Meaning that I've been photographing her milestones since her newborn portrait session, which you can see here.

Heidi - Senior Portraits in Redding, CA

This sweet, beautiful girl is Heidi. She's a senior in the class of 2018 at University Prep School. We met recently at her family ranch just outside of Redding to capture senior portraits for her and her gorgeous horse Shy. 

This session was a lot of fun! I mean really what could be any better than getting to do my favorite type of session in a location like this with a HORSE! It's like the best of everything all wrapped up into one. But to top it all of we also had gorgeous light this evening. Totally a photographer's dream come true!

Little brother John was our chauffeur for the evening and did a great job toting all of us around with all of my camera gear and Heidi's wardrobe. Speaking of wardrobe, didn't she do a GREAT job picking out a variety of flattering pieces?! I didn't even have to help her. This girl has got some style!

Thank you Heidi, Linda and John for a great evening! Best wishes to you Heidi on your future studies and nursing career. Who knows, maybe I'll see you at work one day.
