I was convinced that Melissa and Jonathan were expecting a little girl, and so were many of their friends and family. Melissa, however, thought all along that it felt like a boy. Turns out mommy knows best – Logan James was born August 21st, less than two weeks after this session took place.

This post is a good example of how sessions go when toddlers are involved – they have a very limited attention span and pictures go according to their schedule, not ours. Little Lance was a SUPER cutie:

But I am sure that many parents can relate to THIS, especially on picture day!

So we let Lance relax and do his own thing for a while…

Lance soon decided that pictures might not be SO bad:

Jonathan and Melissa are so sweet together!

And then our session completely changed direction with the appearance of an unexpected guest. With the introduction of this little guy, Lance became instantly animated:

This session was a blast – although the main subject was Melissa and her belly, I couldn’t get enough of little Lance. Isn’t he an angel?! More from this session coming soon, including a special (yet welcome) guest session-crasher. :-)

As many wedding photographers know, each wedding season is different from the last. One date in September may be in high demand one year, while a date in May might be popular the next. This year, August is my dry spot. Hey, prospective brides – I understand! Who wants to get married in the August heat anyway?! So due to my light August schedule, I am running a contest from now until August 8th at midnight. To enter, send me a message with a reason why I should choose you as the lucky winner of one August evening photo session. In this situation, creativity definitely counts! I will be sending the submissions anonymously to a panel of judges who will choose the most convincing story as the winner. And now for the rules…

- Offer limited to persons who “like” Trizza Grantham Photography on Facebook
- You must intend to take advantage of the offer in the month of August
- Session must take place within 50 miles of the Sacramento area
- Please don’t be stingy – tell all of your friends!
- The session schedule must work around the schedule of Trizza Grantham Photography. Weekend dates are unavailable. Please plan to have your session on a weeknight around 6:30pm.
-The session can be from any category including the following: family, children, newborn, engagement, maternity, seniors, or boudoir
- Winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 10th

And because I can’t post without including an image from a recent session, here is a little something to enjoy… A few more from Aubree and Mathew’s session. :-)

The first time I worked with Shayna and Mike, they were planning their wedding in 2009. Although Shayna and I had attended high school together, we never really connected until she contacted me to capture her engagement session and wedding day. I was very excited at the opportunity to capture this couple’s special day – Shayna was planning a day filled with Tiffany blue and hot pink details. Everything was beautiful, and it was definitely one of my favorite weddings so far! (You can see my blog post of their wedding here.)

Next month, Shayna and Mike are expecting a sweet little boy. Once again, they have allowed me to be present to capture one of the most important events in their life together, and I am honored. Isn’t Shayna absolutely radiant? I can’t wait to meet this little boy!

Joleen and I had been emailing back and forth literally for months trying to set up this session, and I am so happy we finally were able to get it done!

I have been friends with Joleen for years. We met while in the photography program at Sac State, and I have to say that she was my favorite college buddy. I remember when we were taking Roger Vail’s evening History of Photography class, and we would take turns popping popcorn to enjoy during the three hours of slideshows. Roger used to give us the evil eye and ask us where his popcorn was. Let’s just say that a couple of extra bags of popcorn may have helped us score some extra points in that class. :-)

Joleen’s family has grown SO MUCH in the past few years. She and Jason welcomed Athena into the world in the fall of 2005, and this year they added their new little boy about a week after our session. Congratulations to such a beautiful family!

As I was working on Sheri’s portraits, I decided I HAD to post this one – little Hannah is just so adorable!

The last time I spent any time with my cousins David, Sheri and Hannah was in 2006 when I spent an afternoon taking family portraits for them in the fall. I am not going to post those pictures because my photography has grown SO MUCH since then, and it would just be embarrassing. However, Sheri contacted me recently because she and David are expecting another little girl at the beginning of April. Sheri looks fantastic in her second pregnancy, and I was thrilled at the chance to capture the family in their *new* home. I have to admit that I got a bit carried away with little Hannah – she was just so charming! She did so well in front of the camera, loving on the belly like she had never even seen it before. :-) And even though it was icky and rainy outside, we had a great time indoors!

David and Sheri, I promise that there is much, much more to come!

Karen’s Maternity Session

Hurray for *new* clients getting ready to have a *new* baby at the beginning of a *new* year! Karen and Nick are a SUPER fun couple who put up with my shenanigans for about two hours of maternity session fun. I am being semi-sarcastic here due to the fact that maternity sessions tend to be quite taxing on women who are dealing with the side affects of pregnancy. But Karen handled our session so well, and she and Nick helped me come up with some fun shots. Even their incredibly protective dog Bear allowed me to get some nice pictures with him!

Baby Elise is due in March, and I can’t wait to help welcome her into the world! Karen and Nick intend to have me there for delivery room portraits and a newborn session a couple weeks following Elise’s arrival. I’m so excited! Thanks for allowing me to capture your special moments, you two. :-)
