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! :)

Petite Session

We are proud to announce that we will now be offering our first....

(of many)

Valentine's Day is right around the corner!
And more than likely you're still trying to think of a wonderful gift. Well, we have perfect solution for you! Bring in your little one for our Valentine's Day Special.

(Dad's, you know this would make her cry. )

It's a one day event and we are only offering limited sessions!
Next Saturday, February 6th
$30 Petite Session Fee is due at the time you book your appointment.
Special session packages available. We're even offering Valentine's Day cards!
(A great thing to send out if you were too busy to do Christmas cards!)

Petite Sessions are mini sessions offered one day only that have special pricing and special packages. We will be offering these periodically throughout the year and each will have it's own theme.

Angels and Tutu's

I know, she's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen too....

Doesn't this just make you want to 'mooch those baby cheeks??

We are in the middle of planning a Valentine's Day Special so stay tuned for more info!

And a huge thank you to our beautiful model, sweet Raegan! She was such a good sport and just as beautiful as always!

The twins are one!

We love when we get to watch babies grow.
The twins just turned a year old and no we couldn't believe it either!
Can you believe how much these babies have grown?! I mean from their newborn pictures to their 6 month pictures.
It really has been so much fun to capture these two during their first year!

We haven't fallen off the face of the earth... I promise!

It's been brought to my attention that I have neglected our little blog. I'm sorry.
*hangs head in shame*

But we're back, and I won't let it happen again! December was crazy, and for any of you that came by the studio I know you can vouch for that! Here is a little tiny sliver of a glimpse of what's been going on here at Simply Portraits while the blog took a little vacation.

And of course, SANTA came!
For those of you that have asked, I've already talked to Santa and he said he would be able to come back the same weekend this year! So mark your calendars, he'll be here and he's bringing Mrs Clause too!

Yes, we dressed up like elves and helpers. (But clearly not everyone was as cool as Kara, Carlene and myself) And yes, I included my own "child" even though he didn't get to "see" Santa. He still needed his Christmas picture taken!

Overall 2009 was an AMAZING year! It would not have been the same without YOU! So thank you for being a part of our 2009 and we can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for us!
