Just a little note to say that yes, I am indeed still here and available to capture your special moments!!!

I have drastically stepped back from social media in an effort to focus on the present
and who is before me in the moment.  

Please know that I do deeply value each and every one of my clients, friends, and family, but in this season I need to protect all of the time I have outside of taking and editing your portraits.  

I won't be blogging or posting photography things again for awhile, but you are always welcome to share all of your images as you'd like and I am happy to know that is happening!!  

God bless you and may His perfect peace keep you in a position of grace and love towards all.  

May Jesus be magnified in us all!!

Much love,

Naomi

Daniel {senior 2015} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2015/6/daniel-senior-2015 **

I cannot believe Daniel is graduating! It seems like yesterday when we met him in 2nd grade Babe Ruth baseball… Daniel has grown CONSIDERABLY taller since then and is such a handsome young man.  He has always been gifted with compassion and standing up for righteousness.  This last year he has done so much to commemorate his last year of high school… he played football with Fresno Christian, competed and won in golf tournaments up and down the state, and has been an amazing golf coach to one little boy who shares his name.  I pray many blessings over this young man's life and that all who meet him see his genuine love for God. Congratulations, Daniel!!

He wasn't very excited about the balloons, so we did our best to make sure he didn't see them before we snuck a few pics in with them in the background.

Happy Birthday, Ryder!!!

Dave + Becca {Sons Wedding} Joy's Gardens, Clovis, CA https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2015/5/dave-becca-sons-wedding-joys-gardens-clovis Dave + Becca Sons 

Established 5.2.15

Venue: Joy's Gardens, Clovis, CA

It was such a gift to spend time with Becca and Dave on their wedding day!  They are an incredibly tender couple and their love story is just adorable. Becca was a traveling nurse in Fresno when Dave (the cable guy) arrived to set up her service… It was love at first sight and not long after, Becca gave up the traveling gig to begin her new life with Dave.  His note with her contact information from their first meeting was framed next to their guest book.  So precious that he saved that... 

Their wedding day was spent at Joy's Gardens in Clovis, such an absolutely beautiful setting to exchange their lifelong vows!  Mary Papaleo, from Stems at the Palatine, did an excellent job coordinating the day to make sure all of the details were in perfect order. Becca fell in love with arrangements by Ellen Van De Sande, owner of European Flower Design, who drove in the beautiful flowers all the way from Arroyo Grande that day. Becca spent many long hours crafting decorative details and planning fun activities for the kids to do during the reception. Everything was just perfect!

 

Dave and Becca chose to do a "First Look" prior to the ceremony so they could spend some private quality time before all of the guests arrived.  The Willow trees in the garden provided such a beautiful backdrop for Dave to view his Bride for the first time.  Their reactions to seeing one another brought tears to my eyes.

 

Becca's Grandfather, Jerry Campbell, began the ceremony with a heartfelt blessing over their vows. Tim Rolen, of New Hope Community Church, delivered a beautiful message as the Officiant for their lifelong commitment to one another. 

 

The guests enjoyed a scrumptious cocktail hour after the ceremony, with live music by the Bryan Vickers Band while we snuck away for some more portraits.

  

Dave and Becca were tremendously blessed to be surrounded by the love of so many friends and family. Dave is from Fresno and Becca is from North Carolina. I was amazed at how many people traveled such great distances to be here for this special day. It really demonstrates how much support they have both near and far.

Wedding Party:

David and Rebecca Sons

Jennifer Fischer, Matron of Honor
Dave Hansen, Best Man

Bridesmaids:  Carrie Allen, Jenn Swartz, and Deborah Duarte
Groomsmen:  Tommy Juarez, Luke Kruper, and Ricardo Gomez

Flower girls: Lily & Renata Duarte and Sydney Urrutia 
Ring bearer: Raymond Martin

             

After their formal entrance and an excellent dinner served by Chucks BBQ Catering, Dave and Becca danced to their first song together as a married couple: All This Time, by One Republic, followed by a night of memories to cherish always...

Congratulations, Dave and Becca!  I pray for a lifelong marriage of much joy and laughter for the two of you!!!

Vinson Wedding {The Grande 1401} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2015/3/vinson-wedding-the-grande-1401  

 

Vinson Vow RenewalVinson Vow Renewal

Twenty years is something to celebrate!!  Jesus is an even greater reason to celebrate!!  The combination of these two and the beauty of a marriage that is focused on walking out Christ in all honor due to the Lord… well that is breathtaking.  This renewal of vows was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have had the privilege of being a part of.  The Grand 1401 was a spectacular venue and the 10th floor was made even more amazing with the flowers, linens, candelabras, and so much more many details transformed this space into the perfect "Happily Ever After" ceremony.  The love, sweat and tears given by so many to make this day possible is just one testimony to the selflessness and grace afforded to us by Christ.  Many, many people came together with their gifts and talents to bless Stephen and Tammy Jo in an outpouring of love that will forever be written on their hearts.

Enjoy some highlights from this wonderful evening...

 

Tammy Jo requested a "First Look" of the ceremony hall before guests arrived… It was beautiful to see how overwhelmed she was by the absolutely breathtaking arrangements.

Reverend Casey Cornell flew all the way from Wyoming with his wife, Jacki, and daughter, Micah, in order to be here for the Vinsons' Wedding.

The ceremony began with the Joe Lenigan Band playing in the dance hall as the Groom and his party entered, followed by his Father and Sister.

  

"A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" resonated in the ballroom as the Bridal Party entered.
Helena Vinson {Sister} 
played the piano eloquently and Lauren Lieder sang beautifully.

 

Helena continued to play as the Bride entered the Ballroom 
many many people came to show their love and support for the Vinsons.

The Ceremony was absolutely perfect.  A renewal of vows is such a wonderful opportunity to solidify a marriage rooted in Christ.  Communion was extremely special in signifying their agreement with the Lord's will for their lives and moving forward into a new season of wholeness, empowerment, and joy that is only found in Christ Jesus. 

Eddie Scholl sang "I Will Never be the Same Again" during their time of communion and prayer. It was the perfect song for this perfect moment. After prayer and Scripture it was time to kiss the Bride...

The Vinsons wanted a portrait of every person who was able to attend their Vow Renewal. This was a lot of fun!  I ventured up to a terrace at the back of the ballroom, but it wasn't until the wedding day that we realized I wouldn't be able to communicate with anyone down below… so I reached my hand out of one of the holes and counted to three.  Most of the guests understood what was happening and we got a pretty good shot :) Vinson Vow RenewalVinson Vow Renewal

There was a yummy mashed potato bar after the ceremony while we took some formal portraits…

Dinner was amazing and then it was time for the First Dance.  Stephen and Tammy Jo rocked the floor with their amazing dancing!!  I was thoroughly impressed by how well they danced together!

The Father-Daughter Dance was beautiful as well.  The Bride had asked several men that she thought of as good fatherly figures to dance with her.  A dear friend helped to choreograph one of the most endearing dances I have ever seen.  You truly needed a video to capture the complete essence of it.

After tears and fun dancing it was time for cake!

​Stephen and Tammy Jo
I wish you blessings of many more years together filled with joyful memories of everything good, true, lovely, pure, just and noble.

Baby Nolan {birth story} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/12/baby-nolan-birth-story ** One of the most glorious and beautiful aspects of bringing a baby into this world is that no two births are exactly identical.  Each baby has his or her perfect story to share about the day they were born.  Prince Nolan has a very special story debuting in the longest and most intense labor that I have ever been privileged to witness.  This wasn't your typical fairytale labor and delivery, but it was beautiful just the same :) Nolan was supposed to have arrived sometime around November 21st, but the Lord thought December would be a much better month for this little prince to be born. 

Nolan's birth story began on November 30th shortly after his maternal grandparents and aunt headed back home following a weeklong visit for Thanksgiving. 

Sunday night, November 30th, Chris and Lauren were walking around Target and Lauren noticed her contractions were 5 minutes apart; so they went home to make sure everything was ready to go to the hospital before heading to bed around 11pm.  She awoke at 3:30am on December 1st with stronger contractions 3-5 minutes apart.  After waking Chris and packing a snack of apples and peanut butter, they headed to the Clovis Community Hospital around 4am. She was 1 1/2cm dilated, and 80% effaced, but having strong regular contractions.  Nurse Elvira (most amazing nurse ever) sent them on a walk for an hour and at 5:20am she was dilated to 3cm and admitted to the hospital.  At 7am Nurse Ally took over and this is where I came in… 

I met them at around 9am and Lauren's contractions were 3-5 minutes apart and pretty strong.  She brought her ball to help through contractions and Chris was such an amazing coach!  He would give her counter pressure on her back during contractions and after each one she said with the sweetest, singsong voice, "I love you."  It was quite precious.  They moved all over the room to try different positions and I was thoroughly impressed by the wireless fetal heartbeat and contraction monitor!!!  Technology changes extremely quickly… Based on the rate and intensity of Lauren's contractions, I thought for certain Nolan would be born before noon!! 

Chris was great comic relief between contractions :)

Around 10am our friend Ginny arrived with Starbucks coffee and breakfast sandwiches for all (except Lauren).  At 10:30am the nurses prepped Lauren for an IV and the doctor came in for a quick visit.  

Around 11am things seemed to be slowing down and Lauren looked tired.  She and Chris had only a few hours of sleep the night before. If they were in for a longer labor, a nap was certainly in order!!  Chris figured out how to work the "Daddy Chair" in the room and they both got set up for naps.  Contractions were now 15 minutes apart. Meanwhile, Lauren's sister Dayna left work early from Sacramento to be with her.  She was on the road about an hour from the hospital so I headed home for the morning, hoping to get a call later that afternoon...

Lauren labored all day and all that night...  

Around 12:15pm Dr. Dave Dorough arrived and asked to break Lauren’s water to augment labor as contractions were 5-7 minutes apart and Lauren was still only dilated 3cm. Lauren requested to continue natural labor and increase walking in order to progress labor.

Between 12:30 and 4pm Lauren was up walking and continued to have contractions ranging from 3-7 minutes apart. Dayna arrived and walked with Lauren up and down the hospital. She took time to pray over Lauren and encouraged her through the painful contractions. Lauren tried to drink apple juice but it made her vomit :(. Doug and Donna Gaither came to say hello and brought Lauren the lemon flavored Gatorade she had been craving. They were surrounded by love and the help of so many!!!

At 4pm Nurse Ally checked Lauren’s cervix and she was still only dilated 3cm… Around 5pm Dr. Dave returned and requested to break Lauren’s water and start Pitocin to augment labor. Lauren refused again as contractions were occurring every 3-5 minutes again and getting stronger even though she was still only dilated to 3cm. There was still hope for a natural delivery!

That evening Nolan was found to be slightly tachycardic (elevated heartrate) and it was recommended that IV fluids be started as the tachycardia was possibly due to maternal dehydration. At about 7pm Lauren was moved from room 1104 to room 1106 and the nurse shift changed. Chris was taking a much needed nap in the car and Dayna helped Lauren change rooms.  At 10pm Lauren’s cervix was checked again...  only 3cm. Contractions were increasing in strength and still about 3-4 minutes apart.

By 1:30am Chris, Lauren, and Dayna discussed having Lauren’s water broken to progress labor as contractions were becoming increasingly painful, closer together, and Lauren was exhausted. She decided she would agree to having her water broken, however no doctor was present at the hospital to perform the procedure at this point. Lauren also requested an epidural to accompany having her water broken.  At 2am Nurse Elvira, Lauren's first nurse, took over for Lauren’s night nurse and checked her cervix during a contraction. Lauren’s water broke while Elvira was checking and she had finally progressed to 3.5-4 cm dilated!!  Yay for progress!!!

Lauren was tired, she had felt the pains of labor, and now she needed a break.  At 3am she received the epidural which quickly numbed her from the waist down (more on the left side than the right), relieved the painful contractions, and allowed her to fall asleep and get some rest.

Tuesday morning Elvira switched with day nurse and Lauren had progressed to about 4.5cm. She was then started on Pitocin. By 9am the doctor came by to check on everyone and noted the labor was progressing VERY slowly.

At 10 am I was greeted with such an absolutely peaceful room.  Lauren was on hands and knees, worship music playing, and a Bible open to the Book of Luke.  There was such a calm feeling when I walked in, the Lord's Presence surely filled the room.  I was amazed that Lauren was mostly numb from the waist down and only propped up on her knees with assistance from the nurse. Another nurse covering for the day nurse had determined that Nolan may be “sunnyside up,” slowing the progress of labor. She had encouraged Lauren to transition to elbows and knees (with Dayna and Chris standing guard at either side of the bed to make sure she didn't slip off the bed with her numb legs) to see if he would turn. Lauren was able to maintain the position for nearly 2 hours and was dilated to 5.5 or 6 when they checked the next time.  At this point they were going on nearly 30 hours at the hospital!  But they all had such great attitudes despite their lack of sleep two nights in a row.  Dayna ran and got breakfast burritos this time and we took some fun portraits.  Nolan still had a way to go before he would be entering the world, so I left again, hoping for them that it wouldn't be too much longer…  

Lauren spent the rest of the day switching between elbows and knees and lying on her side to help Nolan’s positioning and progress the labor.  At one point the contractions became more painful again (mostly on her right side) so they gave Lauren a bolus of pain medication through the epidural line… that helped immensely.

I returned at 7:20pm that night and things were drastically different.  There was still a peace in the room, but definitely a huge weight of exhaustion.  Lauren had been laboring over 40 hours at this point and both Chris and Dayna had stayed up with her most of the previous night.  Lauren was physically drained… she was in and out of consciousness between painful contractions, despite the ease of the epidural line.  She was still only 8cm dilated, but progressing - and that was all that mattered.  She had spiked a fever so the nurse started an antibiotic. After a few pictures and a little visit I went home and waited for the call that it was nearly time to push.

Around 9pm Lauren was fully dilated, but Nurse Elvira recommended “laboring down,” or avoiding pushing despite the urge to, for 3 hours.  Nolan still had not dropped down into the proper station so this extra time gave Lauren's body some rest before he entered into the world.

…And the rest is a blur for Lauren… but I remember!! 

I was THRILLED when I got Dayna's text around 10pm asking me to return.  Ginny was also there and everyone was just doing the best they could to help Lauren however she needed.  Chris and Dayna were amazing coaches through it all.  They were careful to tend to Lauren with anything she needed and when they could do nothing else, they simply stroked her arm to comfort her.  They helped put ice packs behind her back, prayed over her, and gave her sips of water (ice chips) when she needed them.  

FINALLY it was time to push!!  Nolan was in position and this was the moment we had all been waiting for!!!  One practice push and Nolan was crowning, but the nurse said she had to wait through a few more contractions… Nolan would be out in only a couple pushes and the doctor wanted to be there to deliver him… Almost an hour later, it was time!!  The doctor was there, respiratory nurses on hand, everything was ready….

Now it was just time to wait for a contraction!  After only three pushes, Nolan Christopher Lieder came into this world at 12:53am on Wednesday, December 3, 2014.  He was a whopping 8lbs 4oz and 22inches long!!  His poor little head had been in the birthing canal for so long… but it squished back down to normal so quickly!!!  The doctor gave him a quick suction, Chris cut the umbilical cord, and Lauren got a quick kiss and hug before the respiratory therapists did a quick check on his lungs to make sure there was no meconium in there.

The doctor fixed Lauren up while Chris watched over Nolan.  It was such a sweet reunion when Nolan was ready for his skin-to-skin contact with Mommy.  He just snuggled in while Lauren and Chris doted over their new miracle. 

Welcome to the world sweet Nolan!!! We are so excited you are here!  

You definitely made a grand entrance!!!

I'm so excited for you, Hannah!!! The Lord is going to use you to do mighty and wonderful things for His Kingdom!!! You are beautiful and I love you!!!  (now get back to your violin, Missy!!)

My hubby and I were privileged to be his youth leaders for a couple of years and it was such a blessing to watch him grow in the Lord and become more comfortable with us.  He gave us a precious gift before we stepped down as leaders… he let us get to know him.  Devin has such a fabulous sense of humor and has a tremendously quick wit… I know that he is going to accomplish great things in his life.   **

So one of the main things that we were going for in his session was a barn with an orchard behind it.  We had the perfect spot… but when we arrived we found that they were uprooting the orchard!! We were thankful to get some shots in before the orchard was entirely gone :) Enjoy a few peeks from our session!!

Baby Z {birth story} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/11/baby-z-birth-story What a gift to capture new life and all of the emotions that are wrapped up in bringing a new baby into the world.  It is one of my favorite things.  I think when I grow up I want to be a doula… we shall see.

Kayla sent me a message earlier in the day, it was a Thursday, saying that the doctor said today may be the day.  This is her and hubby Josh's first baby, so I wasn't quite sure how long it would take.  They went home from their doctor visit so that Kayla could freshen up before delivery.  Absolutely adorable.. and I might add that Kayla did look quite beautiful… pearls and all!  She got her mascara on between contractions and after a few hours they headed back to Clovis Community to see if she would be admitted. 

After a lot of pain and then an epidural, I walked into a very calm room with Mom making phone calls and texting family about the baby's impending arrival.  At this point it was nearly midnight and contractions had spread considerably further apart after the epidural.  We visited, we laughed, we watched Josh fall asleep in the chair…

By about 2am I decided to head home. It is super convenient that we live three minutes from the hospital (five tops, I'm horrible with time). I got a call at 4:30am-ish that they had broken her water and were hoping for some action within the next hour.  

When I got back to the hospital it was almost time to push and we were all so excited!  Josh and Kayla had pretty well been up all night, so they were EXHAUSTED.  The contractions were much more intense now and Kayla was at the most uncomfortable point of labor - transition.  Josh was such a great coach for Kayla!!  He was so encouraging and just wanted to do anything he could to help her be more comfortable.  Lisa, Josh's mom, was also there for loving support.  Everyone had been up all night to be there for Kayla, who was completely worn out.  

Just after 6:30am it was time!!! (poor thing waited soooo long to push)  Kayla had a FABULOUS nurse who coached and encouraged her through her pushes.  Baby Z was crowning but still had a bit to go unfortunately, they got a call that Dr. was on his way, but they had to stop pushing until he got there.  One of the most horrible feelings (and I base this on experience) is feeling the urge to push and having to breathe through it… Praise God that He is always with us even during times like this!!!

Just after 8am it was time to push again!! ;)  Kayla worked so very hard.  She was physically exhausted from laboring all night that she would literally pass out between pushes.  

Baby Z was born at 8:56am weighing in at 8lbs9oz and 21.25 inches long!!  Such a big boy!! He was so adorably squished when he came out.  Everyone had tears… especially Kayla.  It was one long night and she had been awake over 24 hours… After Josh cut the cord they put Baby Z on Kayla's chest...

After a quick clean-up and check of his lungs, the nurse snuggled Baby Z back on his Mama's chest for some quiet time.  

 

The sweet love between a Mother and her child is one of the most precious gifts God blesses us with.  These moments are memories that will never fade; they are permanently written on our hearts.  

I snuck out as family and friends began to come meet the newest Little Ediger.  Welcome to the world, Baby Z!!  I love you!!  And I love you, Ediger Family!!  May the Lord continue to pour out His grace and love on you, overflowing in measure.

Robin + Heather {engaged} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/9/robin-heather I was so excited when Robin contacted me to capture his proposal to Heather!  His parents live here in Fresno, but they both live in the LA area.  The "plan" was that they were in town visiting friends and family and were going out to dinner this night.  Little did Heather know that this dinner had been planned months in advance with the full intent of Robin proposing to her in his parents' backyard.  

Robin's parents live on a beautiful piece of property out in the country surrounded by grape vines. They were very gracious and welcomed me over to test the lighting a couple of days in advance. Robin planned ahead and strung bulb lights in the yard to create a soft, romantic atmosphere for the special evening.  

There was a romantic table for two set in the center of the yard, complete with a candle and monogrammed glasses.  As they walked outside the bulb lights came on and I heard Heather say, "When did they do this?" 

I couldn't quite hear exactly what Robin was saying from my distance, but I know it was something to the effect that God had given Heather to him and he would spend every day for the rest of his life honoring that gift if she would be his wife.  I believe she said yes :)   It was precious to see how surprised Heather was… they both had tears and shared some special, private moments.  One of Heather's first questions was if Robin had asked her dad for his permission to marry her… and of course he had months ago…  A couple of minutes later Heather asked if she could call her mom and seconds later both of her parents came from around the house with sparklers to congratulate them!  More tears and utter surprise for Heather… 

We took some family pictures and waited for "dinner" to arrive for a few minutes… One of my favorite things about Heather and Robin are how silly they are with one another and how comfortable they are just being themselves.  

One by one Heather's closest family and friends came around the corner with sparklers… I believe at this point Heather was a bit overwhelmed, but in a wonderful way!  

 

 

So many people came from near and far to celebrate their engagement!! 

 

There were so many wonderful details planned for the evening!!

It was one of the sweetest engagements I have ever been privileged to be a part of.  After the food was ready, tables were set and a dear friend blessed the food, everyone enjoyed some time together celebrating this special night.  

Robin and Heather,
I am so very happy for you and wish you many wonderful blessings in the months ahead as you plan for your special day.

The Macias Family https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/9/the-macias-family ** ** I LOVED venturing out to the Macias' new home!  It made me so very happy to see how they have been blessed and all of the dirt and orchards the boys now have to run around and play outside.  I first met Javier, Idarose and AJ just after Sammy was born… I cannot believe that it has been an entire year since that day!!!  Both the boys have grown so much and are seriously two of the cutest little guys!!  And it was a great pleasure to meet Audrey and Alyssa this time also!!!  Enjoy their portraits and the beautiful land they have been blessed with!! Happy 1st Birthday, Sammy!  ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** **

Seth {senior 2013} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/8/seth-senior-2013 Seth is incredible!  He's the first born of a combined total of eight siblings from his mom and dad's sides.  He is one of the most responsible, level-headed kids I know… and yes, he's mine :)  I cannot begin to express how proud of him we are and what an incredible blessing he is to everyone he comes in contact with.  Seth has superseded all expectations placed before him and I know he will excel in whatever he puts his hands to.  

We are proud of you, Seth!  So proud of the Man of God you are. You are incredible. Continue striving for righteousness and truth!!

Kent {siblings} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/8/kent-siblings I am a little biased for sure, but these kids are some of the most beautiful, loving, compassionate and amazing kids I have ever met!!  Yes, they're mine… but seriously!  They are THE. BEST.  These are just some fun pictures in their favorite outfits :)

Here are some pics from some time we spent with our four youngest… missing our eldest who was working and "all pictured out" after his Senior Portraits.  Enjoy! :)

Madison 12 years Matthew 9 years

Kat https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/8/kat

I seriously had such a fun time getting to know Kat and her absolutely beautiful horse, Sierra!! We ventured out to Madera where Kat boards her and spent some time capturing some special moments between them.   I asked her how much Sierra was when her mom bought her 13+ years ago.  When she told me I commented that it seemed like an expensive hobby… but her response struck me.  You can't put a price on friendship.  Hours, days, months, years of friendship… Sierra isn't just a horse, but she is Kat's friend.  Absolutely beautiful.  Enjoy some special moments between these girls :)

Rebecca {senior 2014} https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/8/rebecca-senior-2014 What a blessing to meet Rebecca!  I loved hearing about Sierra High School and her thoughts on moving away to a big city.  She is a kind young lady and I wish her all of the best in this new season of her life!!

The Heberer Family https://www.deeplyrootedphotography.com/blog/2014/7/the-heberer-family

It was such a pleasure to meet the Heberer Family!!  Despite the Fresno heat, we had a fabulous time at the park exploring different places for family portraits.  I loved how connected Matthew and Lauren are to their girls!  When we went for individual portraits they knew exactly what to do to get that real smile out of each one.  It made me so happy to see how loved Caden and Olivia are!  They are two of the cutest little girls I have had the pleasure of photographing… and I LOVED the dresses that all of the girls wore (especially Lauren's!)  Matthew is one special guy to be blessed with these three beautiful ladies.  Enjoy some sneak peeks of the Heberer family!
