I was backing up some photos today, and ran across an old Facebook profile I had that was associated with my old photography studio in Arizona. I had just closed it down and moved back to NorCal to be with my mom after she got sick. My niece was graduating from HS and my sister-in-law asked me to photograph her that spring. Of course I said yes! Brenna is a beautiful girl and I loved photographing her where she was born and raised...
Her mom loved The Buttes in the background!
They're called the Smallest Mountain Range in the world. I'm not sure what the requirements are for an actual "mountain range" designation, but sure enough, even NASA calls them the Smallest Mountain Range in the world. Crazy! Who knew the Sutter Buttes would have worldwide recognition?
Fancy nails, just for the shoot! ;o)
Mom has this one on her wall! Printed on a beautiful metallic paper - turned out beautifully!
The peach blossoms were just beautiful! Or wait, were they almonds? Either way, it was a beautiful setting...
And then we went behind Papa's barn. Beauty either way!
And we have to end it with the Ham Himself - Mason - Brenna's little brother! He loved watching sissy getting her photos taken and I couldn't resist getting his big cheesy smile in the end!
Like I said, these are from an old FB account, so they're not nearly as crisp or clear as I would like... and of course, being ever so critical of myself, there are some in-camera and PhotoShop techniques I'd use now, but... This is my beautiful niece, Brenna, who is now a Volleyball coach at her Alma Mater, Sutter High!
