Sean & Staci’s Wedding

I don’t take many wedding clients, but my beautiful little sister was marrying the man of her dreams so I couldn’t say no!;)

These two are so darn cute together, and were definitely made for each other!  I traveled back to Utah for their special day, and I loved spending time with them.

The evening before their wedding, we did most of their formal photos.  It was chilly and threatened to rain, but we were able to get some beautiful photographs anway! It was great doing them before their big day, and then on their actual wedding day we were able to focus on the family photographs, and then continue on with all of the wedding day festivities.

Here are just a small handful of my favorite formals of them!:)

They are so darn cute together!

What to Wear for Family Photos

I’m going to be starting a new feature on my blog!  One of the most common questions I get from clients is how to find great outfits to wear.  If you look above this post at the top of the site, there’s a tab called “Session Details.”  Within that tab is another page titled “What to Wear.”    There I have some basic guidelines, but with this new blog feature I will not only show you some great outfits that go together, but if you’re interested in purchasing them, just contact me and I’ll give you the direct link to buy them!  Super cool, right?!

When you do group photographs, you certainly don’t have to be matchy-matchy!  You can coordinate colors, add some layers, and mix up patterns for a great effect.  During your pre-session planning, we will discuss outfits and what to wear.  You’re more than welcome to email/text me pictures of the outfits that you’re considering, and I’ll give you my thoughts and opinions if you want them!

Here are some of my favorite tips:

-Think of the color schemes in your house and where you’ll be hanging your photographs from your session… will they match with the outfit colors that you’re thinking?

-When planning outfits for your family, start with the person that’s hardest to shop for.  Find them something that they’re comfortable in and then build everyone else’s outfits around them.

You can also check out the Pinterest board I have going with lots more ideas HERE!

Sisters

I photographed these beautiful sisters in a beautiful orchard, and I loved our time together!  Their dresses were so cute, and the colors all worked so well together!  I love the relationship that I have with my own sisters, and it was fun capturing these two girls together!

The mixture of the beautiful blossoms, the gorgeous evening light, and these girls’ infectious smiles make for some fun pictures!:)

Lots of times I tend to prefer color over black and white images, but with this session I really loved the black and white versions, too.  They make for such a soft and classic photograph! 

Thanks again, you guys!:)

{If you would like to schedule a session, check out the pricing special I have going on right now!  And stay tuned for a big giveaway that I have coming very soon!}

    Jama - Oh my, this is too sweet. I too have 2 sisters that I love and would have loved something like this when we were younger. I have no doubt these girls will love these images forever. Beautiful!ReplyCancel

Princess Tea Party

Please join Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty for a Princess Tea Party!

I’m stepping back a few months with this set of photographs! Every spring for the last 4 years I’ve taken my little girl to a nearby orchard for yearly pictures.  The last few years we went with our dear friends Stephanie and Addison, and this last time we had a fun princess tea party!  I’m finally getting around to posting them, and looking back on them, they just make me smile.  These girls are so cute!

Now that I’ve moved to California I’m really going to miss this yearly tradition with our friends!  However, I found a beautiful orchard here in California to use and I took her out for some pictures this last weekend… that post will be coming soon, so look forward to that!  :)

The beautiful princess dresses were made my friend April.  She is wonderful to work with and makes all the princess  dresses, and the quality of them is AMAZING!!  Check out her facebook page HERE and her etsy shop HERE!

Here are a few of my favorites from our evening together!

It’s oh-so-important to know how to use your pinky finger properly during a tea party!;)

Love these precious little girls!

Cutest baby boy!

Get ready for a super sweet, super cute little baby  boy!   He has such a fun personality, the best chubby cheeks, and lots of adorable expressions!:)

It was so hard to narrow down my favorites to post here, so I’m posting lots!

Heather Taylor Photography Clovis Fresno Baby Photographer CS 2014 09

He had some of the most expressive faces, I loved it!!  We were able to capture many different sides of his personality and just who he is at this moment in his life.

His grandma’s backyard made for such a beautiful setting for photos.  I love the pops of color from the orange tree in the background!

Ahhh… he’s so darn cute!:)

If you’re interested in scheduling a session for your baby, use the contact form above.  I’d love to hear from you!

Extended Family Session

I was able to meet up with this fun extended family for some photographs.  We had a beautiful location to work with, and everyone did so great! Here are some of my favorites from their session!

This location is a beautiful one to work with.  There is such variety here, such as many different trees, flowers, several bridges, water, stonework, etc.  There are so many possibilities of things we can do if you would like this location for your session!  They do charge $35 to shoot there, but in my opinion it’s totally worth it for this beautiful place in Clovis, California.

The color scheme they picked worked well with the freshly blooming trees and nice wood bridges.

Ahh…. loved the beautiful evening light we had to work with!

I love this shot of the family with all the “grown up” kids!

They were such a wonderful family to work with, and the super cute kids were an extra bonus!

If you would like to schedule a family session, use the “Contact Me” tab at the top of the site!:)
