August has been a good month, and a month of a little reset of sorts.  I haven’t had a full schedule for August, at least with work. And to be honest, that has been somewhat welcome after a busy summer and before a busy fall. This extra time allowed for us to get away just Spencer and I for a few nights, and allowed me to prepare for the Fall ahead! I always like to try to do as much as I can before fall hits. Between summer being over and a full schedule of family photography, it’s always good to be prepared. I find that soon session booking will ramp up, since so many people want to hire me as their Livermore family photographer. And when that happens, I tend to let things like posting here fall to the wayside. So being prepared beforehand is key for me!

But this past month on the blog has been anything but quiet! I got to publish so many beautiful sessions that I was thrilled to share with you! From a sweet olive grove maternity session session, to an exciting feature of a family session on a blog. I got to share so much fun work with you here on the blog this past month. I showed one of my petite sessions from this past spring, which is perfect timing since I am currently booking my fall petite sessions! And one sweet newborn session, which are seriously one of my favorite things to photograph. I do say that about everything though, because everything is my favorite thing to photograph! And I can’t forget the amazing in home session I photographed too! Anyways, scroll below for a highlight reel of these sessions! And feel free to check the full session posts out too!
