Grass Valley Family Photographer | Empire Mine Cake Smash Session | Christine Dibble Photography

This little lady is already one! Last year she made the trek all the way to Sonora when she was just days old for a newborn session. Last fall, I met her on Apple Hill for a family session, and suddenly she is a year old! This time, I met her at Empire Mine State Park in Grass Valley. Mom brought an adorable tutu and onesie that said “One” in gold. After we got some family photos and a few clean baby photos, mom set her loose with a cupcake. I have never had a baby get so involved with the cake at a cake smash before! She absolutely loved it! And the best part was when she stuck her whole face on it to eat!Sonora and Grass Valley family photographer Christine Dibble Photography takes first birthday cake smash photos of a baby girl and her family.

Sonora Photographer | Hurst Ranch Pregnancy Announcement | Christine Dibble Photography

When Kathleen contacted me about photographing a pregnancy announcement, I was so excited! She had just found out that baby number three was on the way, and she wanted to surprise her husband with the news during a family portrait session. That meant I was the only other person who knew the big news besides her! We scheduled it just a few days out so she didn’t have to keep quiet any longer than she had to. Kathleen made t-shirts for her boys and the baby with numbers, and she made one for Dad with Dad3 on it. We met at Hurst Ranch and pretended it was just another family shoot. Halfway through, she announced that they would be doing an outfit change, and she passed out the shirts. Both of us were stunned when he said he knew that was going to happen! But he was still very excited about the news, and it was the cutest thing to see him squat down and explain what all the excitement was about to the older brothers. I can’t wait to meet the newest addition!Sonora family photographer Christine Dibble Photography photographs a pregnancy announcement at Hurst Ranch as a wife tells her husband she is pregnant with baby number three during a family portrait session.

Andrea Brittingham - That is so cool that he found out during the shoot and you were able to capture his excitement! And I love that the boys were excited too! The photo of the oldest scolding the soon to be middle killed me. Ahhh, to be old and in charge. ;)

Casey - Christine Dibble Photography I love that your client contacted you to shoot a surprise pregnancy announcement at Hurst Ranch. I’m sure when Kathleen contacted you about photographing your pregnancy announcement, you were so excited! I love that Kathleen made t-shirts for her boys and the baby with numbers, and that she made one for Dad with Dad3 on it.

Monica - This is an adorable idea. I love that no matter how many kids you have each one deserves an announcement and celebration! Hurst Ranch looks like the perfect location for this family too. Beautiful Job!

Laura Ryan - I love surprise pregnancy announcements! What a fun way to change up their family session and include their growing baby! You can tell there is a lot of love and joy in their family, and the boys are full of personality! Congratulations!

Adrien Craven - What a fun way to get the whole family involved and excited in the process! Those two boys are going to be such great big brothers. These Sonora pregnancy announcement photos made such a fun family memory!

Sonora Maternity Photographer | Mommy and Me Maternity Session | Christine Dibble Photography

It was not that long ago that I photographed this little guy as a newborn, and now he just became a big brother! (His baby sister will be featured soon!) He met me at Indigeny Reserve with his mom for a Mommy and Me maternity session. It took a mean game of peek-a-boo to get some smiles for the camera because he really just wanted to run. Then Daddy showed up for a few moments, and it was all about hide-and-seek and climbing trees. But I would rather capture children and families doing what makes them happy than just having them pose stiffly and say cheese! In between, we got some shots of that baby bump. It is hard to believe the baby is already here! If you are thinking about having a portrait session of any kind, do it before the moment is gone!Sonora maternity photographer Christine Dibble Photography photographs a mommy and me maternity session at Indigeny Reserve.
