Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Emily's 1st Birthday Session at Lake Temescal

Rather than try the impossible with posing a one-year-old, Sarah Christensen Photography let little Emily run wild to capture her just as she really is. The result is this session full of beautiful images of Emily and her family, along with all of the genuine emotions of these moments. Lake Temescal in Oakland, California at sunset provided a lovely, natural backdrop. Visit the full gallery for much more.
