Joy to the World

"And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord."

--Luke 2:10-11

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Ruby {In Her Christmas Dress}

Ruby got this special little Christmas dress from Grandma Z. She absolutely adores it. Luckily the rain stopped for an hour or so, so we took advantage of that time and snapped some pictures.

She kept twirling around, saying, "I'm a ballerina, Mom!" It was so sweet.

Oh, she is so cute. I know I am way biased, but seriously...I almost can't handle it.

M Family {Sacramento Family Photographer}

Two sisters married two brothers and so they wanted family pictures with their mother (the sisters)...what a cool family situation! They kept me on my toes and we had a fun time. We met up at Capitol Park and were lucky to avoid most of the rain. Thanks M Family!

M Family {Sacramento Family Photographer}

I took this family's pictures last year and was so excited when they contacted me to do pictures again this year. They are so easy going and it is so fun to see them a year later. Their little girl was so happy and just wanted to play with sticks....but, what kid doesn't? Thanks M Family for letting me take your pictures again!
