Sacramento Senior Portrait Photographer – Lauren’s Photos

I’ve photographed weddings in the snow a few time before but I had not had the opportunity to do a portrait session with the snow as the backdrop.  Being a Roseville senior portrait photographer, I’m more used to the green grass or brown in the summer, sessions with oak trees as a backdrop.  So I decided why not do some sessions in the snow.  Lauren looked amazing in her black dress.  I love her steel blue hair and how it looked great with the snow as her backdrop.  I say perfect!! I’ll be sharing a few more snow senior portraits in my next few posts.  Stay tuned.020SharonHoytPhotographyhigh school senior girlhigh school senior photossenior picture in the snow

Roseville Senior Photographer – Madison

Portraits of high school seniors is one of my favorites.  I just love going out and finding a beautiful place with the most beautiful lighting and backdrop.  And of course, having one beautiful subject with a sweet personality is the best part.  Madison just graduated from high school.  She is an accomplished ballerina and is on her way in perusing her dream.  These photos turned out so beautifully and I’m sure she will cherish for years to come.

Roseville Glamour and Boudoir Photographer – Cathy

Cathy is a beautiful person inside and out.  She is a dear friend of mine.  We’ve know each other since high school and she has not changed at all.  She looks so amazing.  Her smile and happy disposition is so contagious.  I photographed her two gorgeous daughters earlier that day.  Here is the link to their sister’s portrait session.   Being a Roseville portrait photographer, I had request that Cathy drive all the way from San Francisco for her session.  I’m glad she did because we both enjoyed the portrait session and laughing.  She loved her glamorous looking and posing for me.  Her make up that I applied looked great on her.  I love capturing her natural beauty and beautiful smile.

Here is what Cathy had to say about her portrait experience:

“Being a working Mom I don’t have the time to get dolled up- and the kind of work I do, make up is not a requirement. So when Sharon suggested a photo session (or maybe it was my daughter’s ) I jumped at the chance of getting full on makeup and be photographed too!! It was so much fun, and seeing the finished products shows the fun, loving side of me that Sharon has known for years!
Voila!! Thanks, Sharon”

Every woman should have a beautiful portrait.  Call to book your session at 916-749-2268.  You’ll love the experience of seeing how beautiful you really are.

Sacramento Glamarous and Boudoir Photographer – Elvira’s Portrait Session

I just love photographing women of all ages.  I really enjoy it most when I am able to relax my client so the expression is natural.  This portrait session with Elvira was super fun.  I love her beautiful and face…and those eyes..so magnificent!   Her look was so perfect in all of our backdrop changes and even the make up.  I personally did her hair and make up. That was a lot fun.  We started with the light airy look for the casual outfit she wore and we moved to the more glamorous toward the end.  As we moved along, I applied heavier make up on her.  She looked amazing in the different looks I put her in.

Every woman should have a portrait.  Please call me at 916-749-2268 or email me at schoyt@comcast.net and book your portrait today and I’ll guarantee that it will be the most beautiful portrait of you you’ll ever have.

Roseville Senior Photographer – My Twin Boys

My twin boys graduated a couple of weeks ago from high school.  My older son graduated two years ago.   It was quite emotional and somewhat surreal to think that  it is official…my boys are adults.  Being a single mom and raising three teenage boys 24/7 with too much testosterone in house was not a piece of cake. I can say with some hesitation..it was worth the mental breakdown. (LOL)  Looking back when they were babies, people often ask me how hard it must have been taking care of three toddlers (twin boys and another boy who is only 13 months older) during the day and most nights with no outside help.  It was actually the most fun and most memorable time of my life.  Our decision to quit my good paying day job to stay home with them was the best decision ever and would recommend it in a heart beat.  Being there when they wake up in the morning, feeding all three at same time, the never ending changing of diapers, taking them to zoo, the museum, and even to the grocery store (yes, all three under 4 years old) was an adventure that I happily took on.  As they moved on to their teens and the divorce, it made our lives a lot more challenging than ever.  There were endless squabbling over chores, rules, behavior, anger, teen angst, etc.  And now my kids are officially adults.  The parent role has changed.  The task of being a guide rather than  a care taker to my children is a hard adjustment for me as I always enjoyed taking care of their needs.  The big challenge for me is to prepare them toward independence and to make them understand what it really takes to be on their own.  Like many teenagers living in this amazing community of ours and growing up in a comfortable home with  their own bedrooms and swimming pool, they have not had much opportunity to experience what it’s like to work hard for what they want as I and my siblings did at their age.  My boys are still trying to find out who they are. But, I know they are are caring, intelligent young men and I hope that they find what their true passion is and follow it.  Although my care taking years are officially over, I feel there is more work in guiding them to the best of my ability in becoming the best men they can be. And, so my work continues.
