I’ve been taking photos for Sierra and her family for the past FIVE years! HOW CAN THAT BE!!

She has become a dearest friend and our kids are like siblings!!

She doesn’t mind being in front of the camera AT ALL!!

GORGEOUS!!

Silly faces – mad faces – SAD FACES – happy faces!!

Jose & Sierra gifted his family with a photo session last year – and we were JUST able to fit it in!

SERIOUSLY PEOPLE – BUY YOUR FAMILY PHOTOS – THEY WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER!!!

Amy makes leather jewelry. And I happen to LOVE leather jewelry. And she happened to need some pictures taken!! WIN WIN!!

And these kiddos NEEDED a creek to play in!!

SWEET SISTERS!!

EVERY GIRL NEEDS A SISTER!

THAT SMILE!!! Those brothers – the sweetest!

The rain held off until just about THIS moment – but we were done – it was PERFECTION!!

Every child should experience the creek – and find a hiding spot!

Amy – thank you SO much for meeting up with me!! I LOVED spending time with you and your family!!

Michaelia and her boys!! Travis & my brother were best friends in high school – it’s slightly surreal photographing his family now!

That little guy – he reminds me of my little guy – CANNOT sit still! But aren’t the little guys supposed to MOVE MOVE MOVE!?

I ADORE THOSE SHOTS!!

SO CUTE!!!

WE got photo=bombed a few times – this time by a golf cart!!

SISTERS!!

DARLING!! I LOVE THAT SHOT!

COUSINS!!!

This little thing – she can put her own shoes on! They might be on the wrong feet – but they are ON!!

ADORABLE!!

Michaelia messaged me late spring about a family session in August – an extended family session!!

I’ve been taking Michaelia & Travis’s photos for TEN years – starting with their wedding!!

When I first pulled up – this little sweetie had her sunglasses on and I KNEW I had to get a few shots of that!!

TOO COOL!!

They really really wanted to showcase the lake for their session – and thankfully the sun cooperated with us for a few shots – ESPECIALLY this sister shot!!

This session was a surprise for Grandma! She REALLY REALLY wanted a photo of her grandchildren ALL together. With her. So that was our FIRST MUST-HAVE photo!

Sad faces … silly faces … mad faces … happy faces – nearly works every time!!

HUGGING PHOTOS!! I certainly LOVE these photos more than the standing in a spot and smiling for the camera photos! And I ALWAYS will!

JUST THE BOYS!!

BROTHERS!!! Those boys – they are some of our prayer list babies!!

I LOVE being asked to pray for babies to happen. And I LOVE it even more when I get to photograph them!!

That little brother – he doesn’t look SO sure about being in such an intense hug!!

THAT GUY – what a sweetie!!

Maybe we can get some of ALL the cousins – maybe …

AND EVERYONE!!!

She’s warming up – little by little!! A SMILE!!

That might be the ONLY shot I got of the two of them together – because toddlers are ON THE MOVE!!

OH WAIT – there’s a hug – I think!

OH GOODNESS!!! I LOVE THAT SHOT!!!

Stay tuned – they’ve got two more blog posts!!

She was NOT waiting for the bride & groom to cut the cake!! BAM!!

They were nice!!! But the crowd was NOT happy with that!!

SO – they smashed & she RAN!!!

TIME TO PARTY!!

GAH!!! That photo on the right – the father of the bride & his mom!!

I ADORE THAT SHOT!! I would like to tell you that it was my idea – but it was theirs!!

FAMILY!!!

I always try to get the bride & groom out near sunset for some shots – the hills hid most of the sunset but we still got some great shots!!

GORGEOUS!!

You HAVE to have fun on your wedding day!!

Kate’s sister & her hubby – a special request!!

A bench full of memories – old ones & new ones!!

White Hollow Acres in Wellsburg NY!!

The last few shots of the night!!

WILLIE & KATE – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to spend the day with you!!!

I cannot wait to get ALL your photos to you!

And hopefully I’ll see you again to capture your family for years to come!!
