A Fun Family Session

We waited three weeks to see rain. Spent days with dust blowing everywhere. Wouldn't you know it, the day of this family session we finally got rain!

We were not to be deterred though. I set out to the family's house in the country loaded with garbage bags to put down under the blankets on the ground. The rain held off till the session was over and in spite of ending up a little damp we were none the worse for wear and ended up with some great shots.


The kids did great with some help from  a friendly and patient farm kitten.







This little princess was more than happy to stop and pose for me!



M & S, I had a great time with your family! Hope you enjoy you sneak peek! I'll let you know when your gallery is up!

Bridal Session with Sarah

Several of us had the very cool experience of shooting a bridal session with Sarah. She is a bride from a wedding that I assisted/second shot earlier this summer with  Kelly from Forever Photography. Kelly, Dana (another photographer) and I got together with Sarah for some fun shots of her in her wedding gown.

Sarah had professional makeup done by Racheal Ebelsheiser. Her hair was professionally done by Abby Bowker. Both Racheal and Abby are with Expressions Hair Studio and their work was stunning and flawless!! Sarah's beautiful flowers were done by Hy-Vee Floral. All of these things came together on a sunny day to make for some amazing photos!

Sarah was willing to try anything we asked of her and has a natural way in front of the camera and below are several shots showing the fun we had.
















A huge thanks to Sarah, Racheal, Abby, Dana, and Hy-Vee Floral. A special thanks to Kelly from Forever Photography who made this day come together. It was truely the combination of everyone's efforts that made this day so fun and amazing!

Cute as can be!!


I had a session with nine month old baby "N". He was a hoot! He was not sure how much he cared for my camera but we still managed to get some great stuff!



A couple of things you should know about this little guy. He is animated! He truly never gave me the same look twice. I have never seen a baby with so many different expressions...absolutely hysterical. "N" has personality to spare!




Oh, and the tongue...how cute is that? This is one of my favorites cause it reminds me of my own son at that age. He doesn't do it anymore but it is a sweet memory for me of his babyhood.




I get the joy of taking his one year old pics in a few months and I can't wait. Little ones change so fast and I am excited to see him change and grow!  Thanks for the fun, "N"!
