Bundles of Fun!

One of the best things I'm finding out is seeing clients over the last couple of years since I've begun my photography journey. The reason for this, is to watch families like this one grow. From first child maternity photos to their second child maternity photos, love like this grows deep! This family especially knows how to warm it up with winter weather approaching too. Thanks for the great time, have a Merry Christmas!

Where the heart is.

The ever growing family is now on bouncing baby number three! If you ever wan life to be filled, this is the way to do it! And of course, Mama knows that it's hard to get those moments alone, so she planned a special side trip just for that. I can definitely learn from her, with just our one (and one on the way) we haven't had a nice family photo done... well, ever! And to add the couple love (where it all starts) to boot, is amazing. I can't wait to see where you are all headed from here! Thanks ~S family!

Part Two

If there was an adopt-a-family program that existed, I'd definitely put an application in for these guys! A SWEET baby girl, cute and playful boy and nice, delightful parents. I first met baby boy when he was his sisters age and loved to see how the family is doing now. It's so nice to see how the love has grown! Thanks for the wonderful afternoon and the Muttart tour (anybody and everybody should visit, it's pretty- especially when the snow is headed our way, a little flora and fauna is nice!) Have a great year with your little ones!

oh boy, so funny.

This family makes me smile every time I think of the afternoon. They started out the session all ready to take pretty pictures (and they did), then slowly- okay, really fast- they got super goofy. From cracking jokes, to bunny ear photo pranks that by the end of the session Mom said, "Okay we can show our true selves- you guy's can through the leaves at me, but only if I can beat you off with the stick!"

~K, I hope you at least got the one nice photo you've been wanting for almost a year now, but please know the true beauty of your family truly shines through and I was glad to see it!

Small Town Adventure

These guys have a little tyke who knows how to put the farm in boy. A day in the life with them is definitely an adventure. The first time I visited their place I was literally chased by a huge herd of Buffalo and feared for my life. Fortunately this visit was a little more calm, even though we drove through the same field to Pavlo's Barn. The door almost falling on little ~D, Mamma ~C said a quick prayer for ~D being spared any injury. It was sometimes hard to get Papa ~G to focus on the camera and not look around surveying his land or checking out the bird population- but hey, the man is proud!

Thanks for the mini adventure!

Happy Days

Spending time with these guys outdoors for this shoot, George Santayana said it best "The family is one of nature's masterpieces." I've had the privilege of knowing these people for a year now and they are golden! And that always makes days like this fun. Thanks for the fun afternoon, and sorry about the cold toes!

Pretty Lady.

There is nothing more fun than a glam shoot with a friend! I already know the beauty of this chickie, and it shines through. I miss those summer days! (Even though I think this one was already kind of cold, am I remembering right ~C?) Thanks for the time well spent!

The Happy Couple (with more happy on the way!)

I got to know ~S in college (I won't say how long ago *wink* ) and I got to **really** know her on a whirlwind trip across our country by bus and backpack while we were in college. A girl who loves life, values human spirit and knows how to have a good time, I always love our small visits every so often to catch up on new jobs, new husbands and new babies. And after meeting ~J, I have to say ~S, you have met your match! I only spent just under an hour with ~J and I can honestly say these too are cheesy perfect for each other! And this new family unit is so perfect together, that I tried to get maybe two shots without ~J (who enthusiastically warned me as I stepped foot in the door that it was going to be like pulling teeth to get him to stick around for pictures, and then with the same enthusiasm stayed with us to the very end) I noticed that on the book shelf every other book was about baby and daddy. Awwww! *gush!*.

I can't wait to hear the good news! You will make wonderful parents.

Sun-kissed day at the park- in their jeans!

Sweet sunshine and sweet family. Definitely a theme to live by! What a day to soak in the last few rays of summer at the park. This family sure new how to throw the smiles out too. We even found a soon to be vintage (if it's not already!) land line public phone. Neener neener! I had a great time, thanks so much for getting me out on a beautiful day to spend some time with you all! (sorry ~M, the cheesy kisses were begging to be posted! )
