What an amazing day for this little family to be sealed. Middle of the day bright and sunny, but we did our best.

My oldest niece got married last month. Thus the trip to Sacramento. She got married on Dec. 28th. My 14th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful experience to be able to be a part of their wedding on my anniversary. It brought back so many memories. (All good ;)) She was a beautiful bride and I wish them all the happiness in the world. Because they live in California, I wasn’t able to be their photographer. Their wedding day was rainy and cold (same as mine), so it was a good thing they had done most of their bridals the month before. So, not very many pictures taken on the day of, but I was able to snap off a couple quick ones just for fun.
We spent the week after Christmas in Sacramento. It was lovely to get away from the snow and the freezing, and it was even better to be able to take some family pictures somewhere new. Old Sac is now in the running with Albion as my favorite place to take pictures. Rich with history, the calmer weather, a train station and hundreds of store fronts. What more could a girl ask for? These pictures were taken in a whirlwind of speed. We met at 3:00 in the afternoon, the afternoon before a wedding. Mom wanted one more family picture before adding a son-in-law in the morning. There was still much to do in preparation for the big day, so we had to keep our session short. No time for individual shots, and barely any time for smaller groups. Just a few quick family pictures and they were gone again. Wish I’d had 4 hours with them in this beautiful part of town.
Over our Christmas break I was able to take some photos in Albion, ID. Albion is a tiny town. And I mean really small. And yet, I almost want to move there, it is a photographer’s playground. The entire area is filled with gorgeous backdrops: old buildings, haunted college campuses, peeling paint, and broken down trucks. It was so fun to shoot there, and I hope to continue the tradition each December. These kids are so cute and well behaved I could shoot them every day for a month and not get sick of it. I’m excited to see how big that little one is by next Christmas!
