Chen Family Session {Folsom Family Photographer}

Folsom CA Northern California Family Photographer

This is one of our favorite shoots from last year. The light! The outfits! The adorable kids! Obviously we had to take them down to the river. We also captured some great lifestyle shots at locations close to our studio. We love how the kids were enjoying each other! They couldn't wait to throw their arms around each other, and show off their great smiles. 

This is a classic example of how matching outfits can effect a photograph. The different shades of blue work perfectly together. We also love the subtle plaids on the boys.

Sweetest of Summers - Historic Folsom {Folsom Children Photography}

One of our favorite sessions we've done recently was with a little girl named Kate. We just have to share the photos with you! She came to the studio in an adorable summery pink dress, with a cute white bow in her hair! Although it was a hot Folsom day, we went to a couple of great locations & had so much fun laughing & using different props in the photos.

Our favorite location of the day had some beautiful pink roses. I love how they matched with Kate's light pink dress! This is where her true personality came through & she had a lot of fun posing with the flowers. Some of my favorite shots were of her walking through the garden, we're a big fan of 'in the moment' photos here at Luminis. The light was just beautiful!

Near the end of the session, we grabbed some chocolate ice cream (gotta have the waffle cone!) from the shop across the street & went to town! Oh to be a kid during the summer! It was such a great end to this warm day. Thanks for being so sweet, Kate!

Mama Momtourage - Family Session

We had the pleasure of getting to photograph this beautiful family and the Mama Momtourage herself! Amanda, Mommy to two adorable kids Lyla and Brady and wife to husband Nick, is a local blogger here in Folsom that you may have seen featured on Good Day Sacramento with her tips, tricks, and crafts for family fun and organization!

We had so much fun on this shoot! You may think that a 6 year old sister and 3 year old brother wouldn't get along, but they are so sweet to each other and didn't even flinch when we made them hug for a photo opp :)  We love getting to work with people from our community, here in Folsom, that are supporting local businesses and finding new ways to have fun in our town. 

"I started this blog in the fall of 2013 as a way to share the things I was doing with my family, to spread love and positivity, and to inspire and be inspired by the creativity of other people." 

Make sure you check out Amanda's Blog for lots of ideas and even a full calendar for local family activities this year!!

The Fairest One Of All

We've had a lot of birthdays around here! Little miss Gabriella is celebrating her 3rd birthday with a Snow White themed Birthday party and her Mom wanted these pictures for her party invitation. This little social butterfly is the cutest Snow White we've ever seen :)  It's so much fun to do themed shoots and Gabriella was definitely willing to play the part! I mean, what 3 year old girl doesn't like to get dressed up and play a princess for the day?! She's such a natural in front of the camera, as her family has been coming to XSiGHT for years; but one of the most memorable parts of the shoot, and one of her tricks for that effortless smile, was to say "Nasty!" before we took the shot! It was pretty hilarious and it worked! We've got to remember that for our next kids session! Happy 3rd Birthday Gabriella! We hope you have a wonderful party!
