Nikki’s Maternity Session

Nikki is my friend’s sister and the first time I met her was when we arrived at the shoot. I felt so honored that she trusted me to take these photos of her and her family! She was a trooper through the whole thing and I was amazed by her energy chasing around her 2-year-old son, Blake while pregnant! You can see her beautiful glowing face and how excited she is to meet this sweet baby!

Dessere, Kevin, Angie & Taylor

When Dessere told me she would like some family pictures at a farm, I knew just the place right away! Milky Way is one of our favorite places to go for ice cream and to buy local produce. I was even more overjoyed when I saw these stunning girls walking toward me with their fancy hairstyles! They were up for all kinds of fun ideas and (as you can see!!) are extremely photogenic. You’d never know these were taken on one of the hottest days of the year and we were all sweating bullets…

Baby Bryson & Family

When Katie contacted me 2 days before her due date to set up a newborn and toddler shoot, I was ecstatic! I was so thrilled to work with this amazing family as they welcomed the adorable little addition of Bryson to the mix!  Everyone was so sweet and cooperative, and we even got to include the furry member of the family in this session.  All in all a fun and excellent morning!

Hannah & Eric are Expecting!!

Two of my favorite people in the world are having a baby! Hannah is one of my closest childhood friends and we are extra blessed that our husbands are also good buds. Since whenever I hang out with the three of them I am by far the least intelligent (seriously, they’re always talking about something I don’t understand), it was nice to have an area of expertise and get some extra fun pictures of my genius and super adventurous friends!  It looks like there will be another person entering the world who is much smarter than I.  Oh, and did I mention they like motorcycles?  Congratulations, guys, you’re going to be amazing parents!

Sweet Summer Day

This little sweetie pie just turned 1 year old!  I had the distinct pleasure of meeting her family for this outdoor portrait session and then attending her birthday party the following week to get some fun action shots!  I really love how you can see the fun playfulness of childhood and summer in this picture!
