Linde Lane Tearoom {Dixon Tea Room}

Dixon's newest restaurant is one of my favorite things ever - a Tea Room! I've always LOVED going to tea rooms and have traveled to various ones in Northern California so I was thrilled when I heard that one was coming to my hometown! And I have to say it's the nicest one I've ever been to.

Linde Lane opened it's doors in July and a couple weeks ago I went by to take some pictures and for tea of course! :)

They did a fabulous job on the decor, they really went above and beyond. There are different themed "rooms". Here is the glam Princess Room.

And here we have the Parlour Room

And the adorable Teddy Bear Room

There isn't a bad seat in the house!

One of the highlights of the tea room is the Tea Cup table! How many people can say they've gone to tea while sitting in a tea cup, it's truly one of a kind.

No tea room is complete with all the delicious goodies that go so well with tea.

And after you've enjoyed your cup of tea be sure to take a look in their store, they have so much cute stuff!

If you are ever in the Sacramento area you definitely need to drop in at Linde Lane, you will not be disappointed! Click HERE to go to their Facebook page. Cheers!

***UPDATE: Please visit here for even more pictures of Linde Lane Tea Room PLUS an adorable engagement session all wrapped up into one! :)

Pryor Family {Sacramento family photoshoot}

I had the privilege of doing some very special pictures for the Pryor family. Because of everyone living in various states, and even a different country, this was the first time in about 18 months they were able to be under the same roof. Together at last! You won't meet a nicer bunch of people than this group! :)

Typically my photography studio is in the great outdoors :) but because of heat, the number of people, and a toddler, we decided our best bet was indoors with the A/C on. It was a bit of a challenge having to shoot around furniture and in limited space, but I enjoyed having a chance to get out of my comfort zone a little!

Bethany & Allen just moved back to the states after living in England! I know their family is very thankful to not have an entire ocean separating them now!

Little Parker was not too sure why everyone in the room was making such a big fuss about looking at the camera. But she did what she does best, looking cute! :)

I sure miss this family! Kelly, Shelly & the girls used to go to our church before moving to Idaho a few years ago so every chance I get to see them is awesome!

And I'll close with one of my favorites of the day, Rick & Nancy. Thank you for letting me take pictures of you and your beautiful family!

John & Sara {Torrance wedding}

I had a wonderful time flying down to Southern CA to stay the weekend with my friend and fellow photographer Kristen Booth. Aka, THE KRISTEN BOOTH! ;) We have a blast together! I helped her shoot a wedding for an adorable couple, John & Sara. They had their ceremony at the Malaga Cove Library in Palos Verdes,CA and it was such a pretty spot! There was even a peacock (although it didn’t make it’s appearance until we were about to drive away to the reception). Sara was relaxed & easy going and looked SO beautiful, she was a wonderful bride to work with! It was extremely cute seeing her with John, just one look at him and you can see he is completely in love with Sara. Totally smitten :)

Oh and make sure you check out Kristen's BLOG where she will be posting her AMAZING pictures! :)

Sara’s Dad helped tie up her dress (none of us girls new how to tie the right type of knot!) and it made for a super sweet picture.

A few final touches before the ceremony :)

The flower girl and ring bearer were out of this world cute! More on them later...

First glimpse of his bride.

First kiss as husband & wife!

Sara was simply glowing. After all, she did just marry the love of her life!

First Dance :)

Here are the way too cute flower girl & ring bearer I mentioned earlier... They danced with each other ALL night!

Well all night except for a moment when another cute little girl tried to step in... There was almost a full on cat fight right there on the dance floor ;) Haha!

So in love :)

I wish all the best for you Sara & John! I hope the next 4 months fly by until you can be together again!

Kirsty & Kris {Davis anniversary}

It started off with a boy stealing her crutches to get her attention... It ended with a boy stealing her heart. :)

I had the privileged to do a fun anniversary shoot with Kris and Kristy. They just celebrated 7 years of marriage! They may look a little familiar because they are the parents of Taylor who just turned one. It's so awesome to see Kris and Kirsty so in love even after seven years, a baby, and all life's ups and downs. I pray that the next year brings you two even closer! :)
