Gavin’s Charms

We’ve had the great honor of being there from day one when Jacqui and JD were enjoying anticipating Gavin’s arrival, celebrating his birth and now watching him grow to being his handsome, charming self. He has the sweetest little smile and disposition and the three of them have been so enjoyable to frame over the last year.

This last week we got out to take some 8 month shots of little Gavin at the park. He got to sink his toes into the grass, ride a horse, explore the sand over in the play area and get a little swinging in before the sun set. His expressions are unending and our studio can’t seem to get enough of him. He’s truly adorable and we look forward to many more seasons of his smiles.

Family ~ Contributing Toward Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Our Studio had another great Family shoot this last weekend that booked for our family promotion we are running for a contest looking for 2010’s North America’s cutest Family Contest that will in the long run benefit towards a wonderful foundation, Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. The Grand Prize for the winning family is a NEW CAR! It was another beautiful evening with rich sunset tones….a little bit chilly toward the end of the evening. The particular backdrop we decided to venture into was up on the bluffs alongside the red bridge in Fair Oaks, CA. Very scenic, green and atmospheric.

The Smitharts/Kuykendalls brought along with them nothing but charm! We had a blast. Make sure to go to the site and let them know that you agree they’re without a doubt the CUTEST!

Enjoying The Friendship Parenting Can Bring

Last Sunday afternoon not only was I pleasantly surprised with the beauty of the soothing warmth of the sunny afternoon brought on by the beautiful day we were teased with but I was also reminded of what I’ve missed out on not being able to get out and shoot in a natural setting with the nice weather during winter. I am so looking forward to Spring!!! I had a terrific shoot with a mother and daughter family alongside the Folsom area river way who also were an entry into 2010’s North America’s cutest Family Contest! The Grand Prize Winner is a NEW CAR! You definitely can’t beat that! These two had the most exquisite eyes!


When I went to submit their entry into the contest my entry after the two day waiting period was returned unable to be approved. I was besides myself initially only to find later that it was based on the fact that they were under the impression that both my models were under the age of 18 and that they had to confirm that one of the two was an adult. I can only imagine that my mom in this picture is just beaming from ear to ear when she hears this awesome affirmation, Kerrie! So! There you have it! Your picture is up in the voting cue waiting for you and all your friends and family to go vote that you’re the CUTEST FAMILY in North America. It’s a $1.00 a vote. The votes are unlimited. Here’s the Link! You can either look it up under ‘photographer’ Throgmorton or ‘Last Name’ Cameron…… Good Luck! Beautiful Pictures! For anyone wanting to see the rest of the images, they are now loaded into the proofing galleries on my website.

Rooted To Silence’s Echoe’s

She was like a seasoned mother
Who sat anchored, a haven for countless generations
Buzzing with Life’s affluence and passion
Year after year as I framed her beauty
I took in all she had to offer with all my senses
As her surroundings teamed with tone and mood
Now she frailly sat rooted to silence’s echoes
Restless, stirred with an empty abandon
All her children off experiencing Winter’s adulthood
I felt her bidding
The silent chill nipped with uncertainty
As one wondered if Spring would re-visit with play filled laughter
The vast verdant playground of blue wake and green fields
Bid for restless explorers, water enthusiast and love’s youth
She looked forward to stirred rebirth, to share life’s gifts once again.
– Lisa Throgmorton

The warmth tempted us out of the house this last weekend so we couldn’t help but get out and enjoy a little bit of sunshine. We went up by the lake toward the end of the evening and it was really great to get out and get some fresh air.
