It is so hard to believe school is going to be starting soon! Last year Isabelle started Kindergarten so I had to document her big milestone with a themed session. Starting now through Labor Day I will be offering a Back To School Mini Session special for everyone! Call or email to book your session!  To view a sample gallery of a Back to School Mini Session click HERE.Back2SchoolMinisPINIMAGE

We have been in a small group through our church with Bret and Amy for years. We have said so many prayers for these babies and now just look at this beautiful family! These gorgeous twins are just a few days older than our little Jonathan. In fact, we were neighbors on the recovery floor of the hospital! I was so happy to be able to take their 6 month photos. They had a mini session at Thomas Mitchell Park, which I have found has great lighting any time of day. I had such a hard time narrowing down their images. With two babies there were twice the expressions, and they each gave me so many different ones! The best moment of the session was when the amazing twin bond emerged and they decided to hold hands. Just too precious for words.

Drew and his family recently came to visit us for his 6 month photos and family portraits.  New Year’s Eve was an eventful day for both of our families, as Drew and my son (and his cousin) arrived within hours of each other, with Drew winning the race! We had a great time catching up with the family and may have had too much fun, as we had some tired kids!  Even with tired kids we captured some great shots at Thomas Mitchell Park.  We then took a lunch break and ended the session with a few shots of happy fed kids in the studio.

I have wanted to take photos of Isabelle in my wedding dress for quite awhile. I decided with our 10 year anniversary upon us this was the year to do it. Patrick decided to mention my plans to Isabelle and from that moment I was begged daily until I finally let her hop into my gown and pose away for a session. After her session I realized how special the images were to me and wanted to open up the opportunity for others with Wedding Dress Mini Sessions. Blain’s mom was the first to book! It was hot, humid, and buggy, but Blain was a champ! She even put her mom’s dress on a second time so I could pose her with the wildflowers we walked through on the way back to our vehicles.  For more information about Wedding Dress Mini Sessions click HERE.
