I met Rosemarie and her family last year when they scheduled a photo session with me! They had been wanting family photos and I was offering a new client SPECIAL!

Last year they decided on an extended family session for Steve’s family!!

THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT EVER!

This little miss has 2 older brothers who LOVE superheroes! If you couldn’t tell!

Grampie was being silly – and I ALWAYS encourage the silly!!

They decided to meet at a very special place – the family property.

A property that will no longer be in the family – so they wanted some photos of everyone ALL together for the last time – which happened to also be the first time for a BIG family session!!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!!

BROTHERS!!

COUSINS!!

JUST THE GIRLS!! Rosemarie is in the green – and her sister-in-law Annette is in the pink. While I made this appointment with Rosemarie – I’ve actually known Annette much longer!

BLACK & WHITE – did you know that I LOVE black & white photos!? And that one in black & white – GORGEOUS!!

Grammie & her granddaughters!

COUSINS!!! Such sweet girls!

The tiniest smile!!

MY FAVORITE SHOTS – the real smiles – the real moments!

I’ve got more to show you – stay tuned!

Jackie & Dane were more than happy to try BOTH locations – which I was VERY thankful for!!

I have fallen in love with fall colors more and more with each year that passes!!

GORGEOUS!!

Jackie LOVES Halloween and she is LOVING having a little pumpkin to join her this year!!

GIVE ME ALL THE FALL COLORS!!!

I LOVE that you all trust me to lay in the grass – for THE shot!!

SO BEAUTIFUL!! Forever one of my favorite shots of expecting mommas!!

I love the last shots of the night – they are almost ALWAYS my favorite shots of the night!!

Jackie & Dane are waiting to find out if they’re having a boy or a girl on THE birthday!!

Something that I envy!! I wish I could have the patience to wait!!

I wanted to take them to the property for some silhouette shots – but it was quite cloudy!!

We managed a few shots though!!

While it wasn’t the shots I was hoping for – I do LOVE the moodiness of these!!

Jackie & Dane – thank you SO much for asking me to capture this amazing chapter of your life!!

I cannot WAIT to meet your little pumpkin!!!

Jackie messaged me in August hoping to schedule maternity photos!

She went to high school with my friend Sierra and saw her pictures and what she had to say about her experience with me – and THAT made her schedule!!

Did you know that advertising is GREAT! Facebook is AWESOME!

BUT the BEST referral source is STILL & will ALWAYS be YOUR voice!

I couldn’t decide on ONE location – I really really wanted to take them to our FAVORITE spot in Mansfield – but I also wanted to take them to the property outside of town – both are SO beautiful!!

She couldn’t decide on ONE outfit – so it was a perfect excuse to use BOTH locations!

THIS PLACE!!! It’s in my friend’s backyard – a completely hidden GEM!!

BEAUTIFUL!!

I ADORE THAT SHOT!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS TOO!!

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

I love summer – don’t get me wrong – LOVE IT!!! BUT – this pictures – the leaves – the moss – the boots – the plaid – IT SCREAMS FALL!!!

I LOVED this session!!

Stay tuned for their second location!!!

WAITING ON BABY

Kellie messaged me about a mini maternity session – and as much as I LOVE full sessions with you – I totally understand the want for a mini session!

We met a little later on a Saturday morning and caught some shots while their baby boy is still on the inside!!

BIG SISTER!!

The sweetest moment!!

BEAUTIFUL!!

Kellie & Jason – thanks for meeting up with me! I can’t WAIT to see that sweet little brother!!

As promised … the rest of Jan & Nick’s GORGEOUS session!

BEAUTIFUL!!

I asked Jan if there was any spot she NEEDED to have a photo – that tree – he proposed under that tree – SO – THAT TREE IT IS!!

ALSO – can you lay in the field for me!? Can you see that GIANT cricket on her neck in the shot on the right!?

I LOVE COUNTRY LIVING!!

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!

Can we go in with the cows!? YES!!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!!

AND THOSE BOOTS!!

As soon as I snapped those – I said – OH JAN – is there ANY WAY you can get on the wood pile too!?

BECAUSE THE SILHOUETTE WOULD BE GORGEOUS!!

GORGEOUS!!!

JAN & NICK – THANK YOU FOR ASKING ME BACK INTO YOUR LIVES to capture this beautiful moment for you!

I hope to see you again SOON!!

And as an added bonus – you get 10 points if you can tell me exactly WHERE I was standing when I took this last picture on my way back home!!

I’ve always wanted to capture it at sunset but this time I had my camera with me!

That tree – that pond – that dress – that momma!!

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!!
