Courtney’s mom asked me to take pictures of their WHOLE family over Thanksgiving! She saw the pictures of Courtney & Dave and decided she NEEDED some of her own!

Courtney & Dave – he said – didn’t we JUST do this!?

And the baby! When you’re the ONLY baby in the family – you get ALL the attention!

THE WHOLE FAMILY!!

JUST THE GUYS!!

JUST THE GIRLS!!

Babies have MAGICAL powers – especially when it comes to grandparents!!

ADORABLE!!

DARLING!!

Laurie – THANK YOU so much for asking me to capture your family this year!! I hope to see you all again!!

When Krissy told me that Gus wanted to PROPOSE during a photo session – I KNEW I had to come back to Mansfield over Thanksgiving to photograph it!!

She was CERTAINLY surprised!!

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MOMENT!!

SHE SAID YES!!

MY FAVORITE!!!

Gus needed time to get her grandmother’s diamond into a ring setting – ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

Gus & Emily – I am SO excited for you BOTH!

Gus – you get EXTRA points for scheduling a photo session DURING your proposal!

THANK YOU AGAIN!!

Krissy messaged me in the beginning of November hoping I might be able to photograph her daughter and her boyfriend over Thanksgiving!

I knew I would be at my parents – but I also knew I HAD to come back to Mansfield for this session!!

It was COLD. It was RAINY. But – do you see those smiles!? It didn’t matter!!

We went in their barn for a little break from the rain!

GORGEOUS!!

BEAUTIFUL!!!

Emily & her sister – Grace. When I came into their lives – they were kiddos – LITTLE kiddos! Emily & her momma!!

SO ROMANTIC!!

Stay tuned TOMORROW for the REST of their session!!

Thanksgiving was FULL of family sessions! Did you know that I LOVE extended family sessions!?

The Friday after Thanksgiving – I met with the *B* family!

TROUT FAMILY CHRISTMAS

We didn’t think my brother would make it home for the holidays this year – but he did! His wife stayed in Ohio and worked but he brought the kiddos out for Thanksgiving!

On Wednesday night – Thanksgiving Eve – Jared & Fitzy were in Cleveland for a BASKETBALL game!! They stayed at the Westin and had a GREAT time!

BUT – my controlling momma heart was kind of FREAKING OUT a little!! I wasn’t able to really breathe until they pulled in the driveway! WHEW!!

They got in a little after 2 on Thanksgiving and grabbed a plate of food and then opened Christmas presents!!

COUSINS!!!

Enoch 5 – Fitzgerald (who is asking to change his name to just Fitzy) 7 – Rowyn 7 (soon to be 8) – Jack 3 (so close to 4) – Judah 6 – QUITE THE CREW!

That’s only the 23rd gun to add to their collection!!

Rowyn wants to be an ARTIST!! BRING ON THE PAINTS & CANVAS!!

Judah – have you been noticing his faces!! They are the best!

Jack calls me Daniel – and Samm loves it! It IS pretty adorable!

SO MUCH CHRISTMAS!!

My sister is OBSESSED with the poop emoji – so my dad got her a special gift – PASS THE POOP!!

And every year we have to line the kiddos up and get the NEW picture – they are growing TOO FAST!!

We had a GREAT Thanksgiving with our families!!

SCHOOL PICTURES

You would think that as a photographer – I wouldn’t order school pictures – but I do!

They crack me up!!

Those boys – OH MY HEART!!

Jared laughed until he cried when he saw Enoch’s! SO SILLY!!!
