Congratulations to the Byers family!   I am so excited to finally share these newborn portraits of little Mackenzie.  These portraits were taken at just under a week old. Isn’t she just the most adorable thing?  I just want to pick her up and cuddle her.

You will be seeing more of this cute little thing on my blog in future months as she is in the Baby Program! Woot Woot!  So very excited to document her first year.

Not too long ago I attended a workshop given by Sandy Puc’ Tours – a Hands On Workshop, which meant we got to take our cameras and shoot alongside some fabulous instructors.  Super fun.  One of my ideal ways to spend a Saturday, taking portraits!  And there is always more to learn with this craft  


Thought I would share just a couple of my favorites.

Before Christmas I met the Byers Family in Rocklin for their annual family photo session.  It was a gorgeous crisp morning and the light was beautiful, as was this lovely family.  We also made sure to take some portraits of Gretchen, as she was expecting her third baby.  Had to get some belly shots!  The baby, McKensie, was born 2 weeks ago today.  I will have newborn photos to share very soon!  She is a cutie pie!



Head on over to the G Aronow Photography facebook page to vote for the cutest canine.  The doggy with the most “likes” by G Aronow Photography friends (those that have liked the page) will win the free portrait session.

Have I mentioned before that I miss having a dog in my life since my Samoyed Jake passed in 2011.  But luckily I have neighbor dogs that come and hang out with me… like this cutie here:

Can hardly wait to take pictures of the of winner of the contest!  Hope everyone has fun!
