  1. 1. Photography ( Search Information ( Pricing ( Blog ( Contact ( Anniversary Next Move — December 3, 2013 ( Move, for​merly Sacra​mento Emer​gency Hous​ing Cen​ter, cel​e​brated their 21st year anniver​sary by hav​ing wine, good​ies and live music. The best of the local ven​dors from Sacra​mento and sur​round​ing areas where invited for an evening full of fun in that mag​i​cal place called Fairy Tale Town. Walk​ing Span​ish and the Putah Creek Craw​dads enhanced the night play​ing upbeat ser​e​nades, as guests com​pleted the wine walk, enjoyed savory bites from local restau​rants and bid on fab​u​lous prizes from the silent auction.
  2. 2. Strolling down the crooked mile brought back many mem​o​ries of long ago when my class​mates and I enjoyed a field trip to Fairy Tale Town. The ele​men​tary stu​dents loved the giant Mother Goose and it quickly became a tra​di​tion at our school to visit fairy​tale town once a year on the anniver​sary of the first field trip. See​ing her again after all these years was fun and she hasn’t really even aged, unlike some of us;-) What a plea​sure it was to be asked to pho​to​graph this anniver​sary event and an expe​ri​ence I hope every​one has the oppor​tu​nity to enjoy in years to come. Here’s a link for more infor​ma​tion on this orga​ni​za​tion and events they host. (

This is evi​dent in her pic​tures, she is such a spe​cial lit​tle girl. She is full of joy and shows every​body how much she loves them. I’ve never known a one-year-old with such affec​tion and kind​ness dis​played to oth​ers. It was like she was the host of the party mak​ing sure every​one felt the love.
  5. 5. ( When you meet Sienna you know she is aware of what’s going on around her. You see her eyes light up with excite​ment when her fam​ily mem​bers walk into a room. It’s really fun to watch! Every​body seems to fall in love with Sienna after only spend​ing a few moments with her. Sienna is loved so much that her par​ents went all out for her big first birth​day and they even had a very enter​tain​ing pro​fes​sional Faerie from Hap​pily Ever Laugh​ter named Miss Trin​ket to come and do magic tricks for the Birth​day girl and her friends. Miss Trin​ket kept the chil​dren very enter​tained with music, pup​pets, and games the entire time she was there.
  6. 6. ( ( wasn’t all, we had deli​cious treats from Maryanne Lopez Cater​ing who made not one, but two gor​geous lay​ered cakes and these great cup​cakes too!! Sienna loved her cake and wasn’t shy about sharing!!!
  7. 7. ( There were very cre​atively dis​played lovely accents of col​or​ful flow​ers all around. A few water​ing cans full of fresh cut flow​ers and vin​tage bird​cages were placed all around and at the entry to greet arriv​ing guests with a warm wel​come. Fab​u​lously done, and great idea of putting the beau​ti​ful arrange​ments in over​size water​ing cans, I’d never seen that done before. All the details made Sienna’s 1st birth​day party a hit.
  8. 8. ( Sienna’s per​son​al​ity really showed in the pic​tures that were dis​played by using clothes pins hang​ing on string draped across a tall stand​ing lad​der. At the top of the lad​der stood a water​ing can with another very nice arrange​ment of flow​ers that was done by In Full Bloom by MJL. Sienna’s pic​tures recounted the last year, show​ing the sea​sons and all the grow​ing she has been busy doing. What a fan​tas​tic way to show​case every month of the last year and high​light Sienna’s adorable personality.
