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.
