"K's" Senior Session

 I had a blast taking senior pictures for this gorgeous young lady! With an amazing wardrobe and a smile that didn't stop, she was up for anything! Standing barefoot in a creek? No problem!


                                                         Sitting on the train tracks?




What about standing in the middle of the street? 

 

"K" was truely fabulous to work with. Her mom and I came up with ideas and locations and she rocked them all! You can clearly see from her wardrobe that she has a great sense of style and fashion...and then there are the overalls. Let me tell you a little about the overalls. They belong to her grandpa. He has worked many long days on the farm in them. They are his signature piece of clothing when he is working. "K" loves her grandpa and he loves her so it only seemed fitting that she honor him a little in her senior session. Now that is a young lady with a beautiful heart!



She went from an old pair of overalls to this amazing dress and she was stunning in both!

                                                                            

We had the best time getting her session done but I have to admit that one thing went wrong ...
we lost the light and had to stop before I was ready to call it a day!

Thanks "K" for what was the most fun I have had in a while!

Little MIss L

                     I did a little mini-session earlier this week for a sweet four month old.

This pretty girl is Miss "L". I traveled to her house with a specific purpose in mind. Her mom wanted to recreate a photo that she had taken of both her older children. Now "L" was full of smiles and gurgles until the camera was pointed in her direction. She would turn her head like a shy 12 year old who didn't want her picture taken only to turn back towards me and flash that smile again.

Miss "L" has the most amazing blue eyes! Even in the black and white pictures you can see how gorgeous and shiny they are.



I had a wonderful time trying to recreate that special image! Of coarse it makes it even better when taking the pictures goes hand in hand with spending a little time with a great family.


For now, here's one more image of this beautiful little girl!

Catherine and Pat

I assisted/second shot for Kelly of Forever Photography at this amazing wedding last Saturday. The ceremony was held at the St. Mary's Church in Oskaloosa with the reception following at the Legion.

We had such a good time with this couple! They are so much in love and you don't have to be around them for more than a couple of minutes for that to be clear. Here are a few photos from their special day.


                                                                            Ring shot!


The beautiful bride!

Thanks so much Catherine and Pat for letting me share your day with you! Wishing you all the best in your new life together!
