Mothers. Are. Everything.

Mother. Are. Everything.

I have written about my sisters pregnancy and motherhood before and I just feel so lucky to be able to witness this beautiful growth. She came to town a few months ago and we had a little mother son studio session and I love the results. I will be offering mother studio sessions at my new studio up in Paradise, CA in the future. Love how the studio strips away all distractions and allows the image to really just be mother and child. I love photography because it allows us a way to document these special and fleeting moments in our lives. A mother with her first born child just turning one years old. That's pretty damn special.

If you're local and interested in a session please email me at danipadgettphoto@gmail.com for more info :)



Tahoe ~ SoLar EcLiPsE

This past weekend was my husbands 30th birthday. We celebrated by going up to Tahoe for the weekend with family and friends and watching the solar eclipse. Unfortunately, we were not at totality but it was still pretty incredible. The way the light and temperature were constantly changing was blowing my mind! We all posted up on a dock and it turned into the cutest party of strangers. My friend Camille brought Animal Spirit Cards and was giving everyone readings while burning sage and palo santo. It was all for fun and everyone loved it. Our neighbors were all super excited to get their cards read. We drank prosecco, looked up at the sun and all nerded out about how many people were all staring at the sun at the same time around the world. Really amazing.
