Savannah & Shawn - Love Birds

When Lisa and I first started our craft fair adventures, we would just donate something random as our "door prize" offers. usually some form of tote bag or accessory. it wasn't until this past "season" of craft fairs where i thought i would switch it up a bit, and donate something that would be loved by the recipient. Every craft fair we did, i donated a photo session and free 8x10. excellent right? I thought so! But after each craft fair, i checked my email like i was waiting for santa to arrive, and got nothing! That was until i got an email from Savannah! She was interested in a session and i was all ears. Originally it started as a valentine's day session with her and her boyfriend Shawn, but then they found out the military is re-stationing him to Colorado in the coming months. We took advantage of the Sacramento surroundings in order to capture their time here before the move to wide open spaces :)i think incorporating steps in any way, shape or form have become one of my new favorite things to do. so much more fun than having them stand on the same level for every single shot!
it was january, savannah was wearing a tube top, and not cold at all. can you believe this crazy california weather change we have going on?
so, we might have snuck over two sets of ropes on the delta king in order to get this next shot, but i loooooove it!
the marines. the few, the proud, and the gorgeous girl that goes right along with them!
savannah & shawn - thank you SO much for being up to the challenge of replying to the craft fair door prize. You both were excellent to work with, and such a breeze to photograph! I wish you both the best, and hope Colorado treats you well :)


  1. Nice shots Emily! I love the one on the Delta King too. :)
