Family in the Countryside

Family pictures usually include those people in groups with the closest connections. The session is wonderful, fun and calm.

There are generations. Grandparents smile in pride next to their grandchildren.

The photos often include moms and dads next to their children who are all-too-fast growing, changing, learning, and sometimes teaching us.

On occasion, the family pictures also include the special family members – and that’s when things literally go to the dogs! Literally.

This is my favorite of the family!

This is a family I am honored to know and to be able to photograph.

Please find the rest of your images here. Thank you always for your kindness.

Turning One in the World

When you are one year old, you may be little, but chances are good that you have very strong feelings about those important things in life.

Sports.  You love sports.  Specifically balls that roll and can be thrown.

You have that one special friend who goes everywhere with you…

…and who makes sure you are safe, warm, and have plenty of puppy kisses.

You have those really super special big people who hold you when you’re scared or tired, help you put your super stylish clothes on, feed you, and just really make you feel extra important all the time.

You love all of that for sure. Being one is so much fun!

But, when you are one, you maybe are not so in love with that gooey sticky feeling of frosting on your fingers.

And that’s ok because you’re super adorable.  Happy journeys little man.  I hope you enjoy your second year of life as much as your first.  Please find the rest of your photos here.

For the Love of Horse

I always consider myself so fortunate to be able to see our young people from time-to-time when new pictures are needed and I think it’s especially perfect when the person happens to be a young lady with a love for horses similar to my own love for them.

It’s also especially wonderful to think that I first met her when she was very new to life some time ago and to see the truth behind what 14 years is. It is growing up. It is a reflection of kindness. It is beauty.

It is also the result of two wonderful people.

Thank you for sharing your time and your beautiful daughter with me. It is always my pleasure to see you.  Please find the rest of your session photos here.

Sweet Little Lady

I’m so excited when the families I have photographed in past years contact me to let me know they have grown.  I was very happy to learn there is now a daughter for Elizabeth and Matthew.

What a beautiful family the four of them are!

She is such a sweet-heart, loving to be held and cuddled by everyone.

Mom.

Dad.

Big Brother.

(And what a handsome young man her brother is!)

I had so much fun seeing you again and meeting your sweet young lady.  She’s so perfect!

I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to photograph your wedding and now this special time in your lives.  Thank you so much for thinking of me! Please find the rest of your online album here.

Double Adorable

I’m so happy to have met these little beauties when they were just a few days old and am even happier to see them again – a year later. Here’s a look at cuteness – times two!

Family! Love.

Such a pretty smile!

I love baby fingers with the little dimples – and those eyes filled with curious.

Thank you for letting me be a part of these amazing moments of your lives. It is a complete honor to have watched your family start and now grow! You have such beautiful little ladies. Please find the rest of your online album here.
