Cherry Blossom Wedding Stylized Shoot - Blooming Camp Ranch - Oakdale California

Cherry Blossom Wedding Stylized Shoot

The weather called for a massive storm, rain and snow in the low country... and we were scheduled to have our beautiful Cherry Blossom Wedding stylized shoot at Blooming Camp Ranch in Oakdale. There was going to be high winds and thunder storms throughout the valley and foothills. As I drove to Oakdale I could see the clouds start rolling in. Will it rain, thunder, and lightening? We made the call earlier in the week that we were going to make this happen. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and we just couldn't let that pass us by.

 In order to put this gorgeous stylized session together a group of 8 small business women decided to take advantage of the weather and the gorgeous orchard blossoms. Rosie at Save the Date Events did an amazing job putting this entire stylized shoot together. She was the heart and soul behind the entire day. I am so very glad we were all able to make it happen and incredibly thankful that she asked me to be the photographer.

The weather, the gorgeous blossoms, and all the beautiful women made for the perfect stylized session. Could you imaging having your wedding here while the trees are blooming?! Talk about perfection.

Spring Cake Smash - Josephine Turned One | Red Hills California Portraits

Spring Cake Smash - Josephine Turned One

Red Hills California Portraits

One of the greatest gifts is a daughter. Ace Frehley

I cannot believe that it has been a whole year since I took little Josephine's newborn portraits. She is such a cutie, with the biggest eyes, the cutest laugh, and she is always trying to make you smile. Her personality is contagious and I am so honored to be able to document her first year. I thought her 6 month portraits were to die for, but her one year portraits has topped it! Red Hills California was just starting to show signs of Spring and this made for the most perfect location. The yellow flowers made for a blanket of gold and the creek running in the background made for an optimal evening of pictures.

We started off with fun portraits to document her turning one. At first we played in the flowers and then started walking. The flowers tickled little Josephine's toes as we adventured down to the creek.

After the sun began to set, it was cake smash time. Josephine wasn't quite sure what to do with the cake, but after a little bit of time she began to dig in, mainly enjoying the delicious frosting.

 

The entire time she wanted to show off  her delicious cake and she continuously tried to make everyone laugh with her little giggles and fun noises.

This session was absolutely amazing. It was the perfect weather, at the perfect location, and with the perfect one year old.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog and browsing through these images. If you are in search for a photographer I would absolutely love to talk with you. Please feel free to email be or you can even use this contact form.

Wishing you all nothing but happiness and a beautiful Spring!

Knights Ferry Engagement Oakdale California by Bessie Young Photography

Have you ever met a couple and you just knew that they were truly in love? Not the say I love you kind of love, but the love that reaches deep down into your soul? The kind of love that lasts...

Skye and Robert have that deep kind of love. You can tell just by the way that they look at each other, their movements, and their smiles. Their love grows deep and has only just began as they are recently engaged!!!

Knights Ferry Engagement Oakdale California by Bessie Young Photography

as he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.

 

The way Robert looks as Skye is the way every girl wishes to be looked at. And the way Skye couldn't stop giggling the entire session is the way every person wants to feel. This couple is too adorable. Their love for each other overflows and brightens everything around them.

but you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

 

These two have a special place in my heart. Skye and Robert, thank you so much for letting me be your photographer during this special time in your life! It means the world to me.

Wishing you nothing but happiness and love,

Bessie
