Being outdoors and shooting the Morris-Ghannam family was a lot of fun! The kids seemed to enjoy being themselves and posing for us. The response we received back from the photos are exactly why we enjoy taking family photos. Janel said she was emotional looking at the photos and that couldn't have made us any happier to make them happy!

Gee | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2018/4/gee-family We had the pleasure of photographing the Gee family at University of the Pacific in Stockton this campus this year! The Gee family is one of our favorite families to spend time with. We can't believe their oldest son Tyson will be turning 9 this month and Rex turned 7 today! Happy birthday REX!!!

Pham | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2018/3/pham-family PAXTON! You can't tell from some of the photos, but this year he made it a little bit harder for us to capture his great smile! The last time we saw him he was sitting and now he is walking, running, and talking! Hanh and Sophek seem overjoyed having this cutie in their life!

De Lo Santos | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2018/3/de-lo-santos-family It was very nice to meet Shallan, Daniel, and their son Jacob. We love getting to know our clients throughout the sessions! Shallan and Daniel are so easy to talk to and Jacob was such a ham! We LOVE his smile!

Congratulations on welcoming a new addition to the family! We cannot wait to meet the little one!

Chavez | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2018/3/chavez-family A big thank you to the Chavez family for driving from El Dorado Hills to Sacramento to get their photos taken by us! Such a lovely family! Oswaldo and Mateo seem to enjoy baby Diego! All 3 boys were perfect little models.

Brown | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2018/2/brown-family This session was full of laughter! The Browns are a pretty good looking family and it was hard to take any bad photos of them. We love to see the interaction between family members and one of our favorite moments from the session was when Hannah decided to hug her brother Jackson just because, but I think asking Rick to put his forehead on his wife Tammy's forehead topped it! He felt awkward and was wondering why we asked him to do it....haha....The look on Tammy's face says it all. Capturing memorable moments is why we photograph!

Kylie | Sweet 16 http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2018/1/kylie-sweet-16 We were able to photograph Kylie back in her dress for the first time back in October (Kylie's First Photo Session) and on New Year's Eve we were able to snap some photos of her and her family and friends before her big birthday party that night! This was also the first time her father would be seeing her in her amazing dress. It was such a sweet moment seeing the initial reaction and then the tears come out of both of them. It was a fun session and ended with a limo picking up Kylie and her friends to sweep them off to the party. Lucky girls! Hope everyone had a blast that night for the birthday AND new years!

Weires | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/11/weires-family This sweet family of 5 is the BEST! By far, this session was one of the easiest thanks to the cooperation of these cute kids! They were perfect little models who enjoyed posing for us...."sit here....cross your arms....look over there....smile....now tilt your head."

Shekar | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/11/shekar-family For this family session, we went to the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail in Folsom. The weather was perfect and the sun glow gave us nice fall colors! It was nice to walk and chat with mom and dad about their life and family back in India. We are looking forward to seeing them again as they grow as a family!

Kylie | 16 http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/10/kylie-16 LOOK AT THAT DRESS!! Photos can't even do it justice. Kylie even had her own entourage to hold up the sides every time we moved spots. We have known Kylie's family for about 6 years now and we cannot get over how fast kids grow. Kylie is an amazing swimmer and enjoys assisting younger swimmers as a junior coach on our kids' swim team (shout out to Sac Town Tsunami!). She wanted a winter theme on some of the photos so Nick put some of his photoshop skills to work on a couple of the photos. We hope we were able to make her feel special during this session and appreciate that her and her mom reached out to us to photograph her for this special occasion!

2016 Fall Mini Sessions http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/8/mini-sessions Okay, ....this blog is overdue, but better late than not sharing photos from some of our mini sessions! Last November, we photographed many lovely families. Each family is unique and we hope to have captured memorable moments for them to cherish as well as include in their annual Christmas cards.

We go into a mini session trying to capture a variety of shots; family portraits, siblings, mother and children, father and children, sometimes even taking some couple shots....come on ladies, you know you want to show off your hubby, and vice versa! And, of course we have not forgotten about grandparents, pet companions, and other relatives. 

Take a look.....

Paige | Portraits http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/8/paige-outdoor-portraits I have had the pleasure of being Paige's photography teacher for 2 years! She is kind, strong, and determined. Paige enjoys reading, working out, and listening to music. She is also very passionate about photography and aside from pursuing a major in Psychology, Paige seeks to attain a degree in photography as well. 

I wish her luck in her future endeavors! Northern British Columbia will be to lucky to have her as a student.

Horner | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/8/horner-family Every year, we look forward to hearing from Allison wanting us to photograph her family. We love how comfortable the girls are with us now and have no hesitation interacting with us and just being able to chat with us. We went to one of their friend's house in Rancho Murieta that had amazing locations to photograph at. All pretty much in "their backyard!" What a wonderful session and wonderful family!

Nguyen | Family http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/8/nguyen-family It was a pleasure photographing the Nguyen family for the first time! Chloe (the youngest) gave us a run for our money! Nick's goal was to get her to smile by the end of the session and discovered she loved running high fives and gummi bears, so we were able to get a couple of smiles out of her! We are glad Alison, a client of ours, recommended us to the Nguyens and can't be happier with how the photos turned out. The girls were adorable and can't wait to see them again!

We had an Elk Grove High School student, Lucas Miller assist throughout the session. He wants to be a photographer himself so hopefully we helped him meet his future endeavor and we cannot wait to see some of his work.

Paxton http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/5/paxton This little boy, Paxton, was such a charm. He started off the session just plain 'ol mugging the camera! But, the little guy got comfy and when his absolutely beautiful smile was on display, he made our job easy! Smiling cutie of a kid = automatically great photo! We appreciate so much having Hanh and Sophiek (Hanh and Sophiek Wedding) reach out to us again, but this time, to photograph them and their 1 year old. We love it when past clients want us capturing their photos time after time. Thank you Hanh and Sophiek, you guys have an amazing little kid there!

Shona | Senior http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/5/shona-senior We first met Shona when our daughter joined the Sac Town Tsunami swim team 6 years ago. She was winning every race she was in and setting conference records along the way! Crazy how fast time flies, now she's a senior off to San Jose State! It's great seeing all these swimmers on the team grow up every year and then realize... wait.. that means we're getting older.... 

Good luck to Shona in her college career and life!

Trevor | Newborn http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2017/4/trevor-newborn Way back in September of 2014, we shot a little boy named Noah (http://www.mahventuraphotography.com/blog/2014/9/noah). A bit over 2 years later and Noah decided to have a little brother named Trevor! We were so happy Melody and Brandon reached out to us to photograph their next little bundle of joy. Trevor didn't want any part of being a model so he made us work for his photos, haha! But we were able to sneak some good ones in when he wasn't looking, and a couple when he was looking! Can't wait to see this little man grow up in photos and be as big as his brother.
