This is Grace. You already know her. And you probably already love her.

Can you believe she’s 18 months old already!?

She was more than done by now – but at least I got one shot of those dimples!

*A* graduated from SIXTH grade! I love that her mom wanted some special pictures to remember this time!

I LOVE those shots!!

Nicci – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to capture this time in your lives! Before you know it – we’ll be taking her senior photos!!

I didn’t go to a school district where 6th graduation was a “thing”.

I’m discovering – that it’s a big deal in some schools!

I photographed *A* when she was younger – so much so – that she doesn’t remember me!

I was SO excited when her mom asked me to document her last year as a “little” kid!!

I can still see that little girl that I photographed years ago!

I LOVE those shots!! This is HER rock. She said that she has sat here with her friends since Kindergarten!

We were looking forward to spending time IN the school and visiting her favorite places – but – we had to stay outside.

And we HAD to get a few shots with her mask – because as hard as it all is right now – it’s our reality. And I doubt we will ever forget this time in our lives – but we still needed to document it.

Stay tuned for the rest of her session!!

I met Molly & her family a few years ago when I took Arica’s extended family photos – on her husband’s side!!

This year we met at their house – hoping for some snow since the leaves were ALL gone!!

 

We found some AMAZING vines in their woods!!

Those mossy rocks!!

Kids – especially little boys – NEED to be silly!!!

This kid – see those blue eyes!? His parents BOTH have brown eyes – that’s NOT supposed to happen!!!

That littlest guy – he bonked his head on the car door getting the puppy out!! It was QUITE the bump!!

LOVE THOSE!!!

She FINALLY stood still!!

Those shots are my ABSOLUTE favorite!!

Those ones are fun too!!

Molly – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to photograph your family again!!

Maybe next year we can get everyone together again!!

*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!!
