In exactly one month this amazing couple will be married!! I loved our engagement session as we walked downtown Woodland and then went to his family’s farm. Their wedding will be held there, with breathtaking views of the mountains and I hear there will be some very unique animals involved!

Ana is going to be the most beautiful bride and the way Steven looks at her…I know it will be a day to remember. I can’t wait!

Where have I been? Quite literally in the woods. I apologize for my blogging absence (I think I said that the last time I blogged!)  We took the past few months and did the unthinkable, we moved our family to the country. It happened so slow and so quick all at the same time. One day we were city folk, and the next day we were country people. Business wise, we’re still in the same general area, so I’m continuing to serve the Sacramento for photo sessions. Although now I am excited to expand my borders to the areas of Lake Tahoe, Grass Valley and Nevada City. Such wonderful cities are just within a short driving distance to us and I’m excited to see what new people I meet and photograph.

When we decided to move, we had a few prerequisites, and having a bit of land was one of them. All along I would say that I just wanted a small house on some land, and that is truly what we found! The house needs a lot of work and I plan to share all the before and afters here on my blog (as well as a more instant play-by-play on Instagram @amyschuff.) My vision is that one day I could have mini-sessions on our land, and I’ll tuck that dream away for the future.

As of now, we are in the beginning stages of a huge remodel and addition on the house. The days are going to get shorter and the work much, much harder, but I am still so committed to the people that call me their photographer. In this very moment I’m sitting at my desk, surrounded by box after box, just dreaming about the office that I will have one day :) But a photographer can work in absolutely any condition and all I need is my camera and an internet connection (which is really spotty out here in the country!)

Thank you for sticking with me all these months and if you would like to book your Fall session, now is the time! Please contact me at amy@amyschuffphotography.com or the “Contact” tab above.’

Just a few photos from the place we now call home…

I apologize for my blogging absence! We are in the process of selling our house and the amount of work this old 1980’s tract home is demanding is just unreal! But we see the finish line coming up and we’re so excited to barrel through it to literally find “greener pastures.” If you would like to follow along on our house hunting journey, I post almost daily on Instagram :)

So tonight I found myself wanting to reach for my camera when I saw my littlest having a ball on the new tree swing. We’re praying a young family buys our house, so they can enjoy the treehouse and swing as much as we have. I shot maybe all of 10 minutes, threw them on my computer and edited very quickly. In all the hustle of this past month I’ve neglected taking photos with my big camera and it felt very good to get out and create some art of my own.

My message to you is, create art, even when you don’t feel like it. Even when the process is hard and trying. Take breaks, but don’t let the breaks last too long. That’s a piece of advice I’m still working on :)

Welcome to a brand new blog series called, “Thrifty Thursday!” I’m so excited to share with you the items and products that I find at thrift stores and make over. What is even more exciting is that I am doing this series with my sister, Kendra, over at her blog, Momtique. So after you’ve scrolled down this post, please head on over to her blog and see what she is doing with her thrifting finds!

I have been a thrifter since I knew thrift stores existed. The most exciting part of thrifting for me, is the hunt. I love to walk into a store, push up my sleeves and get my hands dirty (literally, please promise to wash your hands after every thrifting trip!) Sometimes I find items brand new, ready to be wiped down with a clean cloth and placed in my home. Other times I find items that need some work done to them, or I go shopping and pull together something that can make a great craft.

Today’s post is simple and sweet. I have a certain path that I walk when I enter a thrift store and one of the paths lead me to the table lamps. This particular time I was scanning the lamps and I came across one that looked just a hair above the caliber that usually shows up in thrift stores. I grabbed it, turned it upside down to find a label and sure enough…”West Elm” was right on the bottom. I looked up the serial number and it turned out to be the $169 Morten Table Lamp being sold for $14. Needless to say I held it close and didn’t let it go!

The lamp shade isn’t exactly the same one but that doesn’t bother me.

Unfortunately, West Elm does not have any more Morten lamps in stock, but I did find a few lamps for you that are absolutely adorable and are in the same mid-century modern style. You can find these on Amazon.

 

 

 

So you never really know what you are going to find at a thrift store! Don’t be scared…just go in…look around…they are magical places :) :)

 

Now head over to my sister’s blog, Momtique!!

Last month I took a photo of my kids every single day and posted them in black and white. I struggled each day only able to choose one photo to share! So here are my February photos that didn’t make the cut!
