Alexa messaged me on FACEBOOK hoping I would be available for her son’s baptism in December!

I snuck in the back as the service was ending! The PERFECT time to grab a few candid shots!

She was NOT sure about this stranger showing up and spying on her!

ADORABLE!

The sweetest little guy!

Stay tuned for the rest of the morning!!

I met Katie in 2012 when I photographed her wedding! I cannot BELIEVE it’s been that long!

AGAIN – I love them both – so you get to see them both!

THAT SHOT – I want to blow it up HUGE & put it on my wall!! I LOVE IT THAT MUCH!!

We spend our summers outside. The past two summers have been spent creek exploring. WE LOVE IT!!

In September – I asked Megan if she would take photos of us in our FAVORITE creek!!

BUT – we grabbed a few shots with the neighbors first!!

The boys brought some LEGOS with them. Because this shale is the PERFECT place for LEGOS!!

I ADORE THAT SHOT!!

That might be my FAVORITE picture of us!!

LOVE IT!!

Those shots – they mean the WORLD to me!!

I LOVE THAT ONE TOO!!

I met Savannah at MOPS a couple of years ago!!

It always amazes me how small the world is sometimes.

Do you remember that time 2 summers ago when I was watching a friend’s kid and he broke his arm!? Savannah & his mom are related!!

We met on a chilly November evening – thankfully I have BEAUTIFUL red leaves in my backyard!!

BRRRR!!

GORGEOUS!!

She’s so very serious!

But – I always tell people – your kid JUST met me & I have a giant camera in their face – of course they’re going to be serious!

But – I LOVE serious photos!!

I love silly photos too!!

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!

She still wasn’t TOO sure about photos. It was chilly & the day after that dreaded daylight savings fall-back!

There’s a smile!!

A BIG SMILE!!

Her flamingo was sitting on my camera helping me take her picture – that made for a GREAT SMILE!!

SWOON!!

Flamingo needed her OWN photo!!

I almost ALWAYS win them over in the end!!

My backyard AND my front yard have GORGEOUS leaves in them!! She brought out the smiles RIGHT at the end!

Savannah & Tyler – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to photograph your sweet little family!! I hope to see you guys again soon!!

*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!!
