{R family}

We had a fun time taking these family pictures, the boys found a huge dragon fly right before we started and they kept track of it long enough to get a picture with it. We rolled down hills and acted silly. My favorite kind of session!

Thanks, Wendy! Your kids are so well mannered and bright! It was fun to see you all again! (I met them a year ago at David and Shantel's beautiful wedding seen here and here)

progress update and photo contest

Hi Friends! I'm slowly catching up! I have about 4 sessions to finish editing and more than that to post. It's been a busy June. Remember how I said I was only going to take 2-3 sessions per month? I broke my own rule, and by the time it's all said and done I will have done 10 this month. I'm slowing it down a bit in July. I'm already booked for August and September and October. I might decide later to add more for October, for now I'm not going to book November at all, we'll wait and do that in the fall...

Anyway, I have a no-editing-photos-during-the-day rule. I'm with my kids all day and we play and have fun, so I do my editing at night after they've gone to bed. It works out pretty well until I get too many in the queue and then I get stressed. If you're waiting for your picutures or previews just know I'm going as fast as I can go without sacrificing my kid's their momma. :) Thanks for being patient with me as I continue to try and balance photography with my life!

In other news, I entered this picture of my boys in a photo contest at Better Homes and Gardens. I saw the call for entries in my July magazine and thought of this picture I snuck of my fellas a few weeks agon on our front porch.

The theme is "Home: It's where life happens."
If you like the photo, would you all mind helping me out and just follow this link and click "like". Thanks!

{W} family

I'm loving this session! This cute little family are friends from our previous neighborhood... so cute! These are some of the cutest little girls I've ever known, the same ages as my boys, so it was so fun to see them again! Mom did a perfect job with outfits. Lots of color, not matchy, nicely coordinated. Perfect!

Dad is headed to Afghanistan for a year, so we made sure to get extra pictures of just dad and each girl... I'm just scratching the surface on these, there were so many that I loved! I'll for sure be posting more once I get caught up a bit!

for Angie

A quick little sneak peak for my cute friend Angie... This was actually a big extended family shoot, and I"m just now getting into them, but of course I go for the individual kids images first. They're always my favorite! I couldn't resist the cute cousins hugging.

Many more of these to come, I'm just now getting into them, but liking them!

catching up...

A quick little sampling from the {S} family's session... Thanks for the fun!

baby gavin

I'm loving lots of black and white again...

Gavin's mom and dad wanted a very simple newborn session. It was a lot of fun to just focus on him and his newborn sweetness! He was two weeks old at the time of the shoot, usually that age is a turning point, they are a lot more alert and a little harder to trick into a deep sleep, but little Gavin surprised me and zonked right out and stayed that way until we were pretty much finished. He was the perfect little angel! :)
