The Bell Family

I’ve been photographing the Bell family for the last three years. I always enjoy seeing them and chasing their sweet identical triplets around, they just turned three. Yes, I said triplets…and identical. Luckily for me Malorie dresses them in different color dresses to help me tell them apart. ;) Malorie also has a handsome son AND she is expecting baby number 5. I can’t wait to meet the new little mister when he arrives in December.

The McKinnon Family

In home family sessions are my new fave. I love how relaxed they are, no matching outfits, no stiff poses. They are real. There's nothing wrong with posed portraits but I love the authenticity of these photos. The crazy unscripted season that this family is in at this moment. It's these seemingly mundane photos that they will cherish ten years down the road, to see a glimpse of what life was like in March 2018. :)

 

Operation Christmas Child Family Sessions

This past weekend I held mini family sessions and all of the proceeds went to Operation Christmas Child. A huge thank you to all of the families that came out and donated items for this cause. With all of the proceeds and items donated we had enough to fill 50 boxes! That's 50 children who will receive a box of gifts at Christmas. Thank you!

The Schweiss Family

I had the privilege of photographing this sweet little family last weekend. Ruthie is the cutest little girl, 13 months old and on a mission! There was no slowing down, unless she was stopping to pick another dandelion. ;)

Fall Mini Sessions

 A couple of weeks ago I hosted Fall mini sessions at Lafayette park. I'm so grateful for all of the families that came out, especially the families that continue to support my business time and time again. THANK YOU!! :)

The Hinderer Family

When I photograph families my overall goal is to capture love. As cheesy as that may sound, its true. I'm not focusing on having everyone look at the camera, I'd rather capture the connection they share with each other...which also brings out natural smiles, happiness and joy. Its my goal to capture families as they are, in whatever season of life they are in...even the crazy toddler moments when it feels like total chaos! These are the memories that will bring a smile to your face twenty years down the road. I love this family session. Such a fun family full of love and happiness...and craziness with two small boys. :)

 

The Graves Family

I've been photographing this family since their engagement session! It's always a blessing to me to watch families grow and to be asked again and again to photograph their special moments! :)
