It is the time of year that I get to say thank you to my awesome clients! This year has been so full of your beautiful families, new babies, and weddings! It has also been a year since Jennie and I launched our wedding photography business together, Vantage Nine19, and we have had several couples join us in our journey this first year. We couldn't be more thankful to them for giving us the opportunity to be a part of their life in such a big way and let us document their wedding for them. As a way to say thank you to all of you from Jennie and I we are doing a giveaway for a $100 Amazon giftcard! It is really easy to enter, we just ask you like all three of our photography pages on Facebook. The box below will make it easy for you to like those that you haven't already and if you like all three just go ahead and enter for your entries!

If you really love us you will share this giveaway to let your friends and family know about us! We would love to spread the word to meet and photograph even more brides, grooms, and families in 2015.

Holiday Card Giveaway!

Last year I received a holiday card from a family that I took their family photos. It was totally unexpected and I loved seeing their card, what photos they loved from their session, and how our time together tuned into something they shared with all their family and friends. An idea was born from this one card, a holiday card giveaway! I received so many cards from families I photographed through the year and happily displayed them all in my kitchen.

And I can't wait to do it again this year!

If you are using a photo I took on your card as you make your 2014 holiday card list add an extra and send it my way! That is all you have to do to be entered. I will wait until just after the new year, in case any of you (like myself) procrastinate and do a Happy New Year card, then will randomly choose one card to win a free photo session to be used at some point during 2015! If you are receiving photo CD's this fall my address will be labeled on your CD cover for you. If you already had your session send me a message and I will get my address to you. I can't wait to see all your smiling faces!! 

The Hallberg family won last year and did a gorgeous photo session at Waterworks in late summer!

Graeve Family {Des Moines Family Photographer}

 This family was like a look into the future. MY future! Having two little boys almost the same exact age difference, this will be me in just a few years. You could tell the boys were best friends but definitely knew how to rile each other up. The boys wear them out but they couldn't be any more loved.

These four sisters are all so beautiful, funny, and full of energy. I love that they each are willing to spin, dance, and laugh out loud for me and I always end with such adorable and real photos of them.

Bailey {5 days new}

 Sweet Bailey has made it two girls for this family and no one could be happier. She smiled and slept through her whole session and her sister and parents couldn't love her any more.

Decker {5 days new}

 Decker makes three and he is so loved. His mom is a natural baby whisperer, having rocked my babe to sleep after my arms were tired. She will be such a great mom and they together will be the perfect team. Welcome to the world Decker!

Lily {4 days new}

Lily's parents anxiously awaited her arrival and she picked Mother's Day weekend to meet them. They had her room all ready, they just didn't know she was a she! Lily has such a big and loving family all around her with family from both sides coming to meet her even in the short time I was there. She was fed and rocked in the rocking chair her mom was rocked in as a baby. She was wrapped in blankets made by hand from other family members. She is more lucky than beautiful, which means she is a pretty lucky little lady.

Soon To Be Released

Everything about a growing baby bump is exciting. Even in all the uncomfortable moments of pregnancy knowing that your baby is growing strong enough to meet the world is exciting and exhilarating. I love it when families want to document this special time since it is so fleeting and beautiful.
