Thank you for visiting our blog! In case you don't know us, our names are Tina and Amanda and we're mother and daughter portrait photographers located in Loomis, California. We absolutely love what we do and we hope you enjoy it as well! Most of our entries will consist of snapshots and previews of recent sittings. But every once in a while we'll sprinkle in some of our others joys. Family, friends, new recipes, and random things that inspire us are more than likely to make an appearance. We love comments, so feel free to leave them for us! And please don't forget that these images are property of Simply Portraits, so please enjoy them on the blog and don't copy them.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story, we can't wait to tell yours on our blog! :)

Our very own {Family Portraits}

For all of those photographers out there, you know how hard it is to get a family portrait of your own family.
Everyone else's family? Piece of cake! But getting your own family together and finding someone
willing to take your portraits is another story!
We're lucky enough to have a family full of photographers. Our amazing-wonderful-talented cousin,
Betsey of Betsey Walton Photography, spent Thanksgiving with us and we traded roles for the afternoon
to get family portraits of each of our families.

They turned out perfect. Honestly, we didn't know we looked so good!
For those of you in the Redding area make sure to look her up!
Thank you Betsey for our beautiful family portraits!

Have you been good this year?

We know how much you want to avoid the mall this Holiday Season.
So we made things a little easier for you. We gave Santa a call and he was so excited to come to our studio again this year!

He'll be here Friday, December 17th and Saturday, December 18th.

For those of you that want your own private session with Santa we'll be scheduling times just for you all day Friday, December 17th. And for those of you that want to drop by at your own convenience we'll have a set amount of time for you too! Drop by the studio any time between 10am-5pm Saturday, December 18th.

The cost for your session with Santa is just $25 and includes 1-5x7!
(We will have other print sizes and packages available for purchase. And since we print right away you'll even have them for Christmas gifts!)

So come in your Christmas best with your list in hand!

Call now for an appointment and stay tuned to our blog for more information as Santa's visit gets closer!

Liza {Del Oro Senior 2011}

Just a little sneak peak of sweet Miss Liza!
We loved being able to incorporate her passion for sports medicine at D.O. by taking her to the football field for some fun shots.
And for later she had some great accessories! We loved the scarves and earrings she brought!
We knew we would have fun with her, but no idea how much!
