How do I love Shandra, let me count the ways! Shandra is an amazing spirit who knows what she is put here on earth to do, provide coaching & healing for teen girls. She came to me when she had established her amazing business and needed head shots and stock images for wonderful website: www.shandralamotte.com. I was thrilled to be a part of this project. And since she is a teacher at a middle school in Oakland, I suggested to her that we do the shoot there – in an educational setting, to show who she is and who her clients are. It was so much fun, and the three amazing girls she had with us for the shoot were so hilarious! I have two tiny kids and to think that they will be teenagers someday blows my mind & terrifies me all the same time. However, knowing people like Shandra are out there to help teens when they need it most, makes me feel a whole lot better:)
Flashback wedding! Katie & Nick’s wedding at the River Highlands Ranch and Vineyard was nothing short of amazing. It was POURING rain when I arrived and as the catering and planning staff rushed to get everything inside the beautiful barn and under tents – Katie was calm and full of smiles:) All the tables had Lake Tahoe themed names, the flowers were stunning, the details were just perfect. And…just as the ceremony started the clouds parted and we were able to take beautiful photos outside:) I sort of had a second baby between shooting this wedding and now, so that is why this one is so behind. Happy anniversary Katie & Nick xoxo.
