When we began planning D+E’s Sacramento maternity session months ago, we had no idea that we’d be battling atmospheric rivers and record-breaking rainfall. But by an absolute miracle, we were able to head out to one of my favorite spots and capture this sweet, growing fam. And what a dose of joy it was!
In almost every session, there are moments that remind me why my job is so important; that documenting milestone seasons for people is a gift to cherish forever. But sometimes the magnitude of it all comes crashing down in this wonderful, monumental way, just like it did at D+E’s Sacramento maternity session. About 3 minutes into our session, E looked at D and said, “we’re doing it!” with the biggest smile on her face. It was quick and likely not meant for my ears, but there it was; that monumental feeling of how lucky I am.
D+E, thank you for choosing me to capture this season of your family. I am so thrilled to document your journey to parenthood, and cannot wait to meet Baby L!
HI, I’M ALLEXA!
I’m a wife, mom, Gryffindor, and photographer based in Northern California. I’m obsessed with all stages of Happily Ever After and capturing the in-between of people loving each other. I believe that the true magic of photography coexists with the posing; it’s in the forehead kisses, the giggles over unsaid jokes, and the blissful feeling of you & your partner cuddling your newborn baby on your couch; it’s in the way your dad looks at you when he sees you in your wedding dress, and the way your daughter laughs when you tickle her tummy. I’m currently booking for 2023 + 2024 and would LOVE to chat more- be sure to reach out on my contact page or come say hi on Instagram!
