K Family portraits in Roseville | Sacramento Photographer | Roseville, Ca

I met up with this darling family on the last evening in August in Roseville, CA so that I could take their family portraits.

Tanesha is one of my very best friends, and it was such an honor to be able to capture her first family portrait since her newest daughter, Aaliyah was born.

Take a look at her newborn and maternity portraits that I captured earlier this year!  These are some of my very favorite portraits!


Over the years I have had the pleasure of documenting Tanesha’s wedding portraits, maternity and newborn portraits with both of her girls, several sets of family portraits, even some event photography (when she asks me nicely), and all the milestones in between!  Over the years, she has become a dear friend to me, and I can’t imagine my life without her by my side.  Everyone who meets Tanesha and gets to know her fun and sweet spirit knows exactly what I’m talking about.  Tanesha is the type of human that you meet once and instantly think to yourself, “I want to be best friends with her!  She has amazing hair!”.  That’s exactly what happened to me!

For this family portrait session, Tanesha asked me to take her somewhere rustic with pretty natural scenery.  Knowing that she has two little ones, I wanted to keep things easy and accessible, instead of taking them on a hike in the mountains which would be beautiful, but might be difficult to finagle with the babies.  I picked a park in Roseville that has a great nature trail lined with big old oak trees and dry grass, with a short and easy walk to get to the rustic scenery.  It’s a great location to bring little ones, and was a convenient short drive from their home in Sacramento.  We met right before sunset, and I took advantage of that last days of summer golden hour sunshine that makes my photographer heart so happy.  The warm sunlight paired beautifully with their outfit choices which had a bohemian feel and were styled in creams with touches of mustard yellow.

I love these family portraits so much!  I can’t wait to show my friend these beautiful pictures of her lovely family!

I am booking family portraits all fall and holiday season.  I still have some of weekday sessions up for grabs as well as a couple of select weekend dates available in late November and December.  Please email smile4mandi@gmail.com to book
