Engagement at the Inn off Capitol Park & International World Peace Gardens | Katrina & Justin | Sacramento Engagement Photographer

I could not have asked for better last engagement session of the year than with Katrina & Justin! They pretty much came with their own prop department and there were endless laughs throughout the entire session. 

They wanted their engagement to truly reflect their relationship, so we started at The Inn off Capitol Park where we captured them snuggling & poppin' champagne (a couple after my own heart). Before heading over to the International World Peace Rose Garden, we ended with a quick pillow fight. 

Can't wait for their wedding next September!

Family Session at The Mill & Old Sac | The Cima Family | Sacramento Lifestyle Photographer

Awhile back my friend Stacie, who was also my co-worker at the time, had asked me about capturing her maternity photos when she was pregnant with this little nugget. And at the time, I simply had no time for anything besides weddings outside of working 40 hours a week and getting my side-hustle on (oh, and planning a wedding). So when I put in my notice, Stacie was not only extremely supportive of my decision to pursue my dream, she was excited for me and reached out to me again to see if I would be interested in capturing her family's photos. I simply couldn't say no! Not only is baby Mila the most precious babe ever, but their family is ridiculously natural in front of the camera!

I loved tagging along during their family morning time at one of their local coffee shops, The Mill, and in Old Sac!

Northern Ambition: Holiday Card making Workshop

In the beginning of December I had the opportunity to attend Northern Ambition's Holiday card making Workshop at Common Space Sacramento. For those of you who don't know what Northern Ambition is: it is a creative collective based in Sacramento and focuses on using creativity for a purpose. The cards created from this workshop were then delivered to two Sacramento elder care homes. Besides card making & learning, there was a delicious spread of treats & an Instagram station! 

Workshop Artist/Instructors: Rachel Allene, Yellow Dot Paper Co., & Kimberly Losenara - @thingsmyhandscreate on Instagram
