Happy New Year! | Children Photographer El Dorado Hills

"Rivers know there is no hurry. We shall get there SOMEDAY." Winnie the Pooh So it's a new year and it's a time of quiet reflection and decision making. Time for all those new year resolutions to take place if you have them. Time for thinking about the future and not dwelling on the past. As I sit here and think about all the things that I have to be thankful for over the past year I am just overwhelmed. All the things I have learned over the year and all things I was able to be present for just because my new job has allowed me to be that way. It is all priceless. So in remembrance of the last year I just want to say thank you to all my new friends and clients. You are all so important to me. More than you know. I am so thankful to have met and worked with each and every one of you that I can't say it enough. I can't wait to see what the new year brings and I am so excited to get going its unreal. My goals for 2015 are much bigger than those from last year but, I want to also remember the wise words of Winnie the Pooh. I will get there someday. Thank you again for all those people that have helped me in this past year and guided me through my first year as a full time photographer. I can't wait to start again!

Sunny Family of Four | El Dorado Hills Family Photographer

You know them. Those really pretty days where the weather is sunny and nice and the temperature is just perfect? We always long for those days right? I know I do! I just love this time of year. Autumn is my favorite season. A little rain doesn't hurt anyone. In fact, in my part of the world we are in a serious drought so we need it badly here. But those sunny days....man oh man. I love them. It's where we can make magic like this one. This family of four, like most, was a little stiff to start out but in the end they were as relaxed as can be. I loved it. Every minute of it. As always. Sunny Family of Four | El Dorado Hills Family Photographer

Fun Family Times | Folsom Family-Children Photographer

"In the end,  it's not going to matter how many breath you took, but how many moments took your breath away.

--Shing Xiong

This last month has brought on a wide array or surprises and some disappointments and other life journey nonsense I would rather not discuss but in the end it all does't mean a darn thing. As long as I am happy, healthy and am able to physically watch my kids grow up right from under me, I am good. I am all good. This last month my kids started school. My daughter in 1st grade and my son in 4th grade it really makes you wonder how things get this way. How does time keep going on and on when I am not clearly ready of it?

With my son being at school, it meant that duckie would be lonely. I came home after school drop off and I found this. Yes, duckie would be less busy but at least he has a warm spot in the sun to rest for the majority of the day.

Later this last month we went to Apple Hill. For those of you that don't know- Apple Hill is an area around here that has lots of places to shop for fresh local fruits and veggies, plants, (MOSTLY APPLES) and get a few treats and crafts a long the way. Expect a lot of crazy out-of-towners to come up and not know how to drive on the windy roads we have here. Expect lots of crafters getting in the isles and making things hard to get around. Expect lots of yelling/screaming kids as you try and have a peaceful sit by the lake. Expect pure craziness when at Apple Hill. There are many farms to chose from but the best are always the busiest! This year we decided to go on "soft opening" weekend and there was virtually no one in sight. It was kinda creepy if you ask me!

My kids never sit quietly, let alone quietly together and never talking nicely to each other. Who took my children?? This is not a normal scene. They were probably just watching for the ducks. What cute ducks they are too.

Cutest Boy Girl Siblings Ever Portrait Session| El Dorado Hills Family-Children Photographer

I love mini portrait sessions with siblings. Its amazing what I can get them to do that their parents cannot while taking photos. Its inevitable- lets read the following scenario. Step 1: Mom states she wants a photo session for her kids only- not the entire family. Step 2: Complimentary consultation to discuss when and where. Mom makes a point in telling me that her kids hate being behind the camera and we may not get anything good out of the session--with a laugh. I laugh back telling mom that I have my ways of making kids cooperate with me. Step 3: The session takes place. Step 4: Magic happens.

So if you like this session and want something similar---or nothing like this at all-- just give me a ring! I can customize any session to fit your needs and your wants. That is a bonus when you choose a professional photographer over a main stream photo studio. Just contact me today and we will set up something just for you.

Much love,

Heather

Summer can't wait...and neither will I | El Dorado Hills Family Photographer

"To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world." Dr. Seuss

So I was lying on my bed today enjoying a wonderful silence. Don't ask me how I got it with two kids, two cats and a dog in the house with me, but none the less it was there. I almost took a nap it was that lovely. The silence always gets me thinking. Sometimes about good things and sometimes not but today it was more of an introspective kinda thing. Ya know, when you look at your life and decide what is important and what is not? I have been saying this for almost seven months and I will beat it to death if I have to: My family is the most important thing to me. I am trying so hard at this thing called "business" but in the end its not what is important. Don't get me wrong, my clients feel that they are important and I try really hard to make them see my priority is with them at all times. However, my time revolves around my family. That is the way I want it and that is the way it will always be. Period.

At the beginning of the year I attempted a 365 project. For those of you that don't know what that is, it is a project where you take one photo per day for an entire year. It doesn't sound that complicated but in reality it really is. Photographers usually do this when they are trying to break out of a rut, or force them to learn something new or just plain practice more often to get better at this thing we love so much: the world of photography. I got about four months into it when I realized something. Taking a photo a day- which annoyed my family to no end- was not conducive to my life. I couldn't do it. Realizing at 11pm at night that you forgot your photo of the day and getting up to "make something happen" was just not cool. Let me be totally honest when I say that I got lazy about it. I didn't get up most nights once realizing this because I new that what I came up with wouldn't be good at all. I told myself I would just take two photos the next day. That worked for a while until I realized that I just wasn't into it. I will regret it at the end of the year once I see all the lovely talented ladies in my 365 group pumping out lovely work- and they are doing it daily. So instead of beating myself up about quitting, I decided that I would just take photos of my life when I sparked an interest. Taking the pressure off myself to take a photo a day really helped me. Now I can take multiple per day when I want to and not feel the need to do that every day. Here are some of the ones I have captured so far on this road we call "summer life". Forgive me for my son doesn't happen to be in any of these. He must not like my camera very much. But at age nine, what boy does?

This summer is going by way to fast but I am enjoying every minute of it. We are making the most of it here in our house! Being that this is the first full summer I will have ever spent with my kids on a day to day basis, I think we are doing pretty good.

Much love.

Two Wild and Crazy Guys...or just two kids? | Placerville Children Photographer

Recently I did a session for some wild and crazy guys! All that was planned was a night out with these two boys and we had a blast. The best part was that I am friends with this family. When the kids know you, it does help a bit to get the "photo session jitters" out of the way! What was so funny is that the youngest boy had such a hard time with his allergies the whole night! I felt so bad for him! But, we did end up getting some keepers in between all that sneezing... Two Wild and Crazy Guys...or just two kids? | Placerville Children Photographer

The many faces of adorable Miss P | El Dorado Hills Children-Family Photographer

I am so excited today to show you the first major look at the adorable Miss P! She was the cutest thing ever on this cloudy and rainy day. We did our best though and only took photos while the rain was on a break. It wasn't too bad and I wouldn't have changed the session for anything! Miss P's mother is a dear friend of mine and I have to say I had a really great time catching up with her since we don't work together anymore. Miss P was giving me so much to work with and all of the different expressions she came up with were very entertaining. What was even more funny is that she wouldn't stop! I can't wait to see her grow up and become a beautiful woman! Thank god we have a while until that happens! But when I am old and grey I will get to look back on these and remember how cute she was. Isn't that what it is all about? Oh well- lets stop looking to the future and think about the now because it is more important anyways.
