The Bass Family|Old Town Sacramento Portraits

It’s an honor to capture a family through the years, it is an even bigger honor to be friends with the families you capture!  Katherine and I have been friends for many, many years.  Growing up and going to the same schools, AND taking the same high school photography classes!  She is now a local photographer as well, and I LOVE that she trusts me to capture her family portraits.  Last year, we went to a park, this year when she called, she was looking for something a little more urban, with some character.  It wasn’t hard to choose Old Sacramento!  With the brick buildings, alleys, train museum, and accessible stationary trains you really can’t go wrong!  Katherine, I loved wandering around with your beautiful family and capturing the sweet way you’ll interact.  Your love for your husband and your family is SO obvious in your life!  Thank You!


We started at some brick…2013Bass_21_Blog

These kids…they are DREAM photoshoot material, hamming it up AND loving on each other the whole time!2013Bass_23_Blog2013Bass_29_Blog

I love to capture husbands and wives on their own without their children, interacting…sometimes I even focus on the kids and let them get comfortable with the camera off them, so that I can capture their sweet natural way of just being with each other.  I happen to know that Katherine had the image below on her phone screen for awhile after, because I got this email after I delivered the images. It den’s get much better than this!

“Loving my phone right now xoxoxo

Thank you Anna. Dave and I so rarely take photographs together which is silly because we’re both hopeless romantics.  It’s just really special to have some photos that capture how we are together. thank you for giving that to us and not having it feel forced.”

When Katherine first saw her images, this was her response:

I love them!!!!!!!!   🙂 It’s really hard to focus on anything that has even come close to bothering me this whole week, after looking at what beautiful, loving spirits my children have.  xoxo  🙂 Precious.
Thank you Katherine, for your friendship, your trust, and the fun of being your photographer ;-).  Until next time!

What’s YOUR story? Do you need new family images to tell that story on your walls, or in a book on your coffee table?  Are you looking at your kids and wondering, where the time goes, and how they got so big?  Do you want to celebrate who THEY are RIGHT now?  I would love to tell YOUR FAMILY’S story, and CAPTURE YOUR LIFE!   Send me an EMAIL, and we will grab a coffee and get to know each other!
