The Lovely L's

Boy, do I love a good urban setting, and these gorgeous ladies (and Sarge) live in the midst of one! We barely had to move to run into a plethora of awesome grungy and interesting backdrops. So fun working with you all! Enjoy your little sneak peek...

The B Family

This awesome family took advantage of having everyone home for the Thanksgiving holiday to squeeze in a shoot at Country Pines Tree Farm - a place they've been visiting for years for their family Christmas tree. Since the rain couldn't hold off forever, we even managed to grab a few shots in the picturesque barn. Thanks for a fun shoot B Family!!

The S Family

Meet the S family with their three handsome young gentlemen. With tickles, giggles, forbidden words ("narsh" - lol!), and Rudolph noses, these cuties were a blast to shoot! Thank you for braving the frigid temps to make these awesome memories!

A Girl and Her Puppy

I love scouting out new locations for shoots!  This time I dragged a couple of my favorite subjects along to take advantage of one of our last warm Fall days during peak leaf color. Can't wait to go back for a "real" shoot! :)

The B Family

This easy-going, great looking family was a cinch to shoot. We wandered through some back paths and found some different angles in a popular photography spot to avoid the crowds and I think it really paid off!  Thank you B Family!

Right Back At It!

Our second trip with the beautiful K family was a whopping success! We went back to the same location and repeated some shots we weren't able to get the first night and added a few extras as well. How can you not, when you have models like these?? :)

Although we all loved the first night's shot by the pond, with the storm rolling in, the grain was a bit too much.  This time, however, we had gorgeous golden light and no need to run for the car!

The K Family

We went out for some possible Christmas card shots of this great looking family and good friends, but the sky just wouldn't cooperate! It opened up on us just seconds after the last pic below. Considering how dark it actually got during our shoot, I think these turned out pretty well, though! Hope we can get back out there soon and try for more!!

Ben: Take Two!

Met up with Ben, his mom, and sister this weekend to shoot a few more senior pics - this time with his soccer ball and cleats and MUCH better weather! We even managed to sneak in a few shots around the school building.  Thanks for another fun shoot!

Lovely Miss Lyndon

So happy I got to go back and spend some one-on-one time with this precious, happy, bright-eyed little girl!  Such a beauty!  And, it doesn't hurt that Mom and Grandma always have the coolest props evah! :)

One Century!

What an honor to shoot this wonderful lady's 100th birthday party!! The love of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and more was evident as they gathered from near and far to celebrate her amazing milestone.  Happy birthday, Stella, and many more!

New Additions and New Tricks

This session was absolute cuteness overload! From the adorable Parker, to her new baby sister, and even big cousin Mason (who is no longer camera shy by the way - at least as long as he's climbing something)! ;) I just couldn't get enough! Thanks for another fun session!!

The L Family

It was exciting to shoot this fun family again with their two beautiful young ladies and awesome pup!  They always come up with the most unique locations that feel so remote, but are right in the heart of things.  Loved every minute of it!!  Thanks, guys!!

The J Family

I know it's cliché, but I never cease to be amazed at how quickly kids grow up! In this case, I've watched this family maturing right next to my own kids, but I'm still shaking my head at the transformations!  Mom wanted some family memories before the eldest goes off to college (to Notre Dame on a scholarship no less!!!  Wow!!) and I was honored to be the one chosen to make that happen. You have a beautiful family, Mr. and Mrs. J., and I'm sure you are very proud of the outstanding young men and women they are becoming.  Here are some preview shots of our session in the morning sunlight...
