Party Night! https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/9/party-night Think about a photo booth at your next gathering! This was made at a sweet sixteen black and white ball in Folsom this last September. We set up a photo area for the guests with White and Black backdrops and props - This was the kids best "brat pack" pose - we had so much fun with these kids - all 80+ of them that attended!

Dr. Forrester https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/7/dr-forrester Dr. Shavawn Forrester from  Truckee is a Nutritionist that contacted me for her website photos. Honestly one of the funnest sessions I've had in a while.  Photos were taken around Donner Lake inlet just next to Memorial Park.  She was so much fun to work with, very bubbly and up for just about anything. Isn't' her smile infectious?!

Barnes Family https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/5/barnes-family This was a fantastic session with the Barnes family!  This wasn't just a family photo session, it was a celebration of the 1 year birthday for baby Noah. Noah was a NICU baby born in May of 2013 at just 932 grams (2 lbs).  He is truly a miracle!  Thank you to older brother Cole, Tracy Ann and David for inviting me to photograph your amazing family!

The Greatest Gift https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/4/the-greatest-gift Welcome to the world baby Jace!   I was so honored to shoot Christina and Justin's wedding, then Christina's maternity session, and finally the newborn photo's of their Baby Jace.  This shot was taken during a little break in the action when the baby needed to take a feeding break - some of the best photographs come when you aren't planning them. Love this shot of Christina so intently focused on him and comforting her little man.

Creative! https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/4/creative This photograph was made on Easter sunday this past April. I had traveled to the peninsula to see my family and on my way home to Colfax I saw the sunset was really beautiful coming up to San Francisco. I took the long way home via the Golden Gate Bridge, ( much prettier drive than highway 80), and stopped at Chrissy Field, then to the Marina to take some sunset shots over the small craft harbor.  Walking back to the car, I noticed this group of condos on Marina Street that had the reflection of the sunset in their windows and part of the arch of the GG Bridge! It looked liked the units were on fire from the inside.

Holy Filoli! https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/3/holy-filoli Filoli Gardens in Woodside CA is a site to see!  If you haven't made it through, you need to go!

After the 1906 earthquake, many wealthy San Francisco Families relocated to the Peninsula and built large estates.  A number of these families made their fortunes in the railroad, mining, banking and mercantile boom of America's Gilded Age.  Filoli is the last of these estates remaining on all it's original 654 acres.  Built by Mr. and Mrs. William Bowers Bourn II, who lived here between 1917 and 1936, the estate was sold to Mr. and Mrs. William P. Roth in 1937.  In 1975, Mrs. Roth donated the estate to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  Today the property is open to the public from February through October with the help of more than 1,000 volunteers. 


Mr. Bourn created the name "Filoli" by combining the first two letters from the key words of his credo:  FIght for a just cause, LOve your fellow man; LIve a good life."

Have fun with your session and think of ways to bring out your clients personality!

Mother and Daughter https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/2/mother-and-daughter Had a great time today with Malissa and her daughter Kailea in Old Sacramento! 

Malissa is a photographer herself, and has a lot of photographs of Kailea, but not many of the two of them together. 

Now she does!

Mother Nature https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/2/mother-nature Early last week there was a heavy fog layer that came over Colfax - once the sun broke through a little it was beautiful.  I was in my pajamas mind you, and I did get some looks as me and my bed hair traveled down my street to the main road, but it was worth it!

Newborns! https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/2/newborns Photographing newborn babies and children in general can be tasking, but with patience and being ready at a seconds notice, the great shots DO present themselves.  This is 10 week old Silas and his very handsome beanie hat.  He was awake for most of the session and just started to fall asleep towards the end of our shoot.

Happy New Year!! https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2014/1/happy-new-year New Years Eve. San Francisco, CANew Years Eve. San Francisco, CA New Years Eve in Beautiful San Francisco, CA ... No better place to be.  The night was absolutely beautiful!! No Fog, no rain, no wind and a moonless sky, which makes for the best night photos.  Unless you're trying to shoot the moon in which case these conditions would be a disaster.  Fireworks were blasted from just behind the Coit Tower and made a perfect reflection on the Bay water.  

Canon Rebel T2i, 3.2 Aperture, 5 sec shutter and 100 ISO

Today's Photo Story https://www.kathleenfelionphotography.com/blog/2013/12/dolor-it

Boudoir is such a fun type of photography, even though I have a horrible time spelling BOUDOIR - Danielle is a professional hair stylist in Roseville, CA  and we had a great day shooting her sexy side!  She also has a great sense of humor which is important in getting a natural pose and a relaxed setting.  Let's face it, this can be a little intimidating to be so exposed on camera.  Being a people person as they say is important and letting go and allowing things to be unscripted is crucial in getting your subject to look as natural as possible and get them to loosen up and show their natural side.  This session was shot at my photo studio in Colfax.

DanielleProfessional Hair Dresser in Roseville, CA and a great model! We had a great day shooting her sexy side!
