Sacramento Children's Photographer - Visit to West Texas!

We had a fabulous little getaway this past weekend.  My husband's grandmother celebrated her 90th Birthday, and my mother-in-law put together a surprise party for her.  We flew out with the kids, as well as my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, and their kids.  The cousins had such a great time together!  I had a few opportunities to take pictures, and I have to say, even though Panhandle and Amarillo, TX, are very FLAT... there were some GREAT country textures and backdrops for photos.  We had a fun trip to the western store, where Nona and Grandpa bought each of the kids a pair of boots.  We added in belts and hats, and had such a fun time on this family shopping trip.  And here are some of the results!  Thanks Nona & Grandpa Lew for such a great trip! sacramento children's photographersacramento children's photographersacramento children's photographersacramento children's photographersacramento children's photographer

And... this was the guest of honor.  Look at her beautiful face!  I just love this picture.  She's such a neat woman, and sharp as a tack at 90 years of age.  Grandma Polly - you are an amazing woman.

Sacramento Photographer - Apple Hill Photos

A bit of a personal post this evening... what a great day it was for our family!  We decided last minute to make a little trip to Apple Hill.  Can I just say how much I LOVE Apple Hill?!  If you have not visited, and you are local to the area, all I can say is make a trip!  We visited a grower called "Denver Dan" and picked a whole 4 lbs of beautiful apples.  I just have to say that Denver Dan's was a little more off the beaten path and not one of the most popular growers.  The owner and his wife were SO so sweet.  They gave each of the kids a peeled, cored apple to munch on... and they gave us a family sampling of FRESH apple juice... nothing like apple juice you buy at the market.  And they even gave us a cobbler and ice cream.  They were the sweetest. most generous people!  So if you visit, stop by their orchard. AND, if I have any clients who are interested in a photo shoot in the Apple Hill region, please let me know.  I love visiting this place, and I think that a morning, or evening shoot would be SO fun... and beautiful, as you can see below.  Hope you had a great weekend!
