CLASS OF 2019

I met Amy last year when she asked me to take senior pictures for her daughter and her friends – do you remember the BREAKFAST CLUB session!?

Well – a year has passed already – and they’re graduating!

Amy asked me to come to graduation and photograph her daughter and their group of friends!

As I was sitting in the stands – looking at the program – I realized that I graduated high school 20 years ago that week.

And I had written a letter to my grandmother about what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a photographer for National Geographic (I had no interest in photographing people)!!

Not only was I sitting in a gymnasium full of kids exactly where I was 20 years ago – but I was also hired to take their photos! SURREAL!!

Stay tuned for the rest of graduation!!

*K* FAMILY

Kate’s dad brought out this old sled for her – such a sweet thing to do!!

And this swing – she used to swing with her grandfather. I LOVE when you ask me to take photos at places that mean so much to you!

Thankfully Kate brought her dad – and he gave us a lift up the hill to overlook the property!

GORGEOUS!!

Silhouette shots are my FAVORITE!!

SWOON!!

Before we left – Kate asked if we could get a few shots of her with her dad on this special swing at this special place!

Kate & Willie – I CANNOT WAIT for your wedding!!!

KATE & WILLIE – SHE SAID YES

I met Kate & Willie at the PENN WELLS WEDDING OPEN HOUSE!!

I was SO excited to hear from them about booking me for their wedding!

I love hanging pine trees!!

AND I LOVE serious faces!!

BUT – I LOVE smiling faces too!!

Focus is SO overrated!! I LOVE that shot!

Kate spent so much time at this property while she was growing up! This tree was planted by her grandfather!

We scheduled this session once – then it called for thunderstorms so we cancelled and it turned out to be BEAUTIFUL.

We scheduled again and really WAS raining that day! UGH! SO – one more shot. And we got a BEAUTIFUL evening!!

GORGEOUS!! Stay tuned for the rest of their session!!

Her aunt happened to be home – so we included her!

Megan is a fellow photographer and a dear friend. While we don’t see each other nearly as often as I’d like – I can count on her to pray for me in whatever I am going through.

She LOVES Jesus. She LOVES her family. She LOVES her job. She LOVES.

This guy – he’s the middle right now – and he and *E* are cut from the same cloth.

SWEET LITTLE SISTER – soon to be BIG sister!!

I’M BATMAN!!

And this guy and my Fitz are cut from the same cloth. So we get it – and it’s nice to know that it’s not just our kid that does these things.

But Megan can almost always say – I’m there too. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Megan & Seth have always found out the gender before the birth – except this time! So will *A* have a little sister or a little brother!?

THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!

The first baby born born in their new home – the property they’ve dreamed of!

AN APPLE A DAY!!

*J* wanted a picture of just the brothers – SWEET BOYS!!

Stay tuned for Megan’s maternity session – IN the water!!

WAITING ON BABY

MY FAVORITE SHOT!!

Their life is about to get a little more interesting – adding another sister to the mix!!

Kristi & Patrick – THANK YOU so much for coming to Mansfield and trekking around my FAVORITE spot with me!

I CANNOT WAIT to meet your baby girl!!
