I cannot tell you how much I'm looking forward to some warm days by the river. Any excuse to be outside and enjoy the beauty of our area is good for me. This is from autumn with my man and our dog, we're both learning how to fly fish and although the Sacramento River isn't the best spot to catch some fish it's only about a 5-minute drive from our house and a good place to practice our casting. Come on Spring, we're ready for you!
In addition to being a Wedding Photographer, I also love to do editorial and lifestyle photography. I recently had the pleasure of photographing the summer lookbook for Billy Sky Jewelry. Lauren Woodward, the talent behind Billy Sky, is a local Chico maker, who designs and creates all of the beautiful jewelry in this line. I was more than happy to collaborate with Lauren on this shoot and capture this handmade jewelry being worn by the lovely model Jacqueline Hyland. Working with passionate local makers, especially women in this industry is one of my favorite parts of being a freelance photographer.
I had the lovely experience of photographing a community charity dinner party hosted by Bacio Catering at the Chico CARD center all proceeds donated to Catalyst Domestic Violence Services. It was such a beautiful evening with beautiful folks. Duffy's Tavern was bartending and a host of other Chico businesses donated their time and services.
I love family style dinner events and I love photographing them. Good people, good food, and good wine...what more could you ask for? :)
