Colorful Downtown

We live in such a great little city with a beautiful downtown! We took advantage of all the colorful doors, neat brick alleyways, and gorgeous yellow leaves still on the trees while out for photos. I met this little guy when I photographed his first {superhero} birthday party. Each time I am with this family I get reminded of how photogenic and awesome they are!

Moore Family

I love seeing a family as they change. This is another perfect example of exactly that. When I first met Miss Kamdyn she was two and her mom was expecting her sister. At that time they didn't even know she was a sister at all. We also found out the first time together that Lacie and my cousin, both teachers, actually work together! I am so happy I was able to come together with the Moore family and am excited everytime I see their message come through my inbox.

This fall I met them for photos in one of their favorite places to go camping while the weather is nice. Hopefully these photos will help them remember what is to come while they wait for next spring to arrive.

House Full of Boys

I have two boys at home. Mine are five and two. Watching these two boys reminded me so much of my two boys at home. I felt right at home photographing them and getting most photographs of them hugging on, wrestling, and/or poking each other in some way.

With a third baby boy on the way for this beautiful family I know this home will be filled with extra noise, energy, nature indoors from playing outdoors, and even more noise.

But more than anything it will be filled with little boy hugs, cuddles, and loves which are always the best kind. But I might be a little biased.


This family are friends of friends and we have met them several times in different gatherings our friends put together. When I got the email from her that they wanted to set up a session I was ecstatic. I'm admitting something here...

Sometimes when I meet a family that is so beautiful and so obviously in love with each other I cross my fingers that someday they will ask me to photograph their family. True story.

In this case all my finger crossing came true. They are the perfect combination of adorable, beautiful, silly, and in love. They tried to say they were awkward in front of the camera. Then in the following ten minutes I was able to capture at least 50 completely not awkward, perfectly natural photos of them. I kept taking photos for another 45 minutes just because it was so much fun.

Then if it couldn't get better, sweet Payton gave me a high five on the way out and didn't want to go home...
