*J* FAMILY

Last year – Jan gave her mom a gift certificate for Christmas! LAST YEAR!!

We had been trying to schedule but couldn’t find a date that worked for everyone.

I took Jan & Nick’s wedding photos 5 years ago & their maternity photos in late August – I was secretly hoping they would wait till after their little girl arrived to schedule their extended family session!!

LOOK AT THAT LITTLE FACE!!

Just the girls!! This sweet little baby & I share a name – how cool is that!?

OH MY HEART!! I just LOVE that picture!

You’ll see more of these lovely faces next fall – when I shoot their wedding!!

I had no intention of creating such a moody silhouette – but that’s what happened!! I LOVE IT!!

Another moody silhouette!!

I LOVE extended family sessions!!

THAT HAIR!! OH – she is just so sweet!!

THIS IS US!!

She is SO happy about being an aunt!!

When I grabbed this crib – grandma said – OH!! I have an old quilt – can we use that!? ALWAYS!!

THE SWEETEST!!

I ADORE those last few shots! Jan – Caitlyn – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to photograph your WHOLE family!

I can’t wait to see you all next fall!!

MOMMA!!! FLIP ME UPSIDE-DOWN!!!

Every single time.

I am perfectly FINE not having a daughter – even though I really really want one – and then I take pictures of little girls & their mommas – and I really really want one again!!

COWS!!!!

Amanda told me that the truck holds a special place in her husband’s heart. His FIRST truck. Which makes these pictures all the more meaningful!!

OH MY HEART!! I LOVE THAT ONE!!

His eyes closed – my FAVORITE!!!

The sun was setting but I was still hoping dad would be able to join us for a few shots!!

ALWAYS LET THEM BE SILLY!!

HE MADE IT!!! JUST IN TIME!!

THAT SKY!!! Those MIGHT be my favorite silhouette shots EVER!!!

Amanda & Rob – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to photograph your family! I’m so happy we waited just a little bit longer for a few shots of the whole family!!!

I can’t WAIT to get you ALL the photos from your session!!!

DID YOU KNOW that most people think that the pictures they see on this blog are ALL the photos I’ll be giving them!?

NOT TRUE!!! The ones on the blog are just my FAVORITE ones that I HAD to show you!!!

You get about 150 to 300 photos at the end of our session – sometimes a little more – but NEVER a little less!!

I LOVE photographing you year after year – but I also LOVE having NEW families in front of my lens!

This family isn’t new to me – but they are new to being photographed by me!

PUMPKINS!!!

Did you know that little kids NEED to be silly!?

And if you let them be silly FIRST – they usually will give you the smiles and take the bunny ears away!

I ADORE that shot! Seemingly insignificant moments.

ADORABLE!!!

CAN YOU BALANCE A PUMPKIN ON YOUR HEAD!?

Amanda & her husband are farmers. Her hubbie had some last minute work to do and wasn’t able to join us for the photos – such is the farming life right!?

This guy – he reminds me so much of Enoch sometimes! They are good buddies at school!!

ABSOLUTELY THE SWEETEST!!!

Stay tuned for the rest of their session!!!

I left out my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE photos – so that Amanda would have some surprises to show people herself!!

I’ve been taking Becca’s extended family photos for at least 3 years now!

We had planned on newborn photos with her little guy in the winter but she decided to wait until July. We scheduled and then had to reschedule. And then it called for rain the day we rescheduled in August so we called it off. It actually didn’t rain but I was having a rough day since the boys decided to stop falling asleep overnight. So – we rescheduled. AGAIN.

September 11th. And it called for rain. But that morning it looked clear and beautiful!

We checked the forecast and there was NO rain!! On my way to Canton – it didn’t look good. Troy was WET and getting into Canton – it started to sprinkle!

NO!!!! But thankfully it was a quick sprinkle and we were able to have our LONG AWAITED session!!

The family farm – where ALL our sessions have taken place!

I MEAN – SERIOUSLY!! ADORABLE!!

That cat – she wanted to be in ALL the pictures!!

THOSE FRECKLES!!

OH MY HEART!!! THAT LITTLE FACE!!

She managed her way into a few!!

SWEET GIRL!!

THAT CHEESE GRIN!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!

THE SWEETEST BOY!!

Because little brother got in the crib – little big sister needed to get in – and then BIG sister asked if she was too big for it!? NOT AT ALL!!

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

Stay tuned for their SILHOUETTE shots & the rest of their session!!

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!
