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!!

Another year – another hour spent in the creek with this fun family!!

THAT TREE!! It’s my new favorite place!!

OH MY HEART!! THAT SHOT – SO BEAUTIFUL!!

THAT GIANT SMILE!!

These are my FAVORITE sessions!

We had scheduled our session for early October – but alas – the weather said differently!

Thankfully we got a lovely late October evening!!

I love her. Wearing her fancy dress & playing in the rocks!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS – so much happiness!!

*E* thought of this spot all on his own – that kid has an eye!!

Heather – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me back into your lives year after year!!

I’ve known Johna for 14 years! She walked into Phoenix Rehab looking for a job & we clicked like long-lost sisters!!

She is one of the most passionate & big-hearted people I will ever know!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!

THAT ONE TOO!! SO MUCH LOVE!

GAH!! Her momma heart!!

This girl – I remember getting the text after she was born. She’s here & she’s a redhead!!

This guy & my E – they are two peas in a pod!

We had a little ladybug join our session!!

OH MY HEART!! The cheek squish!!

I said – okay guys – I want you to look at each other now!

Matt just kept looking at me & the girls could NOT hold it together!

REAL GENUINE SMILES!! THE BEST!!

It might have been late October – but the leaves right here were BEAUTIFUL!

The PERFECT fall backdrop!!

The sweetest little faces!!

That little leg hug!

Those colors – those leaves – THOSE PEOPLE!!

BEAUTIFUL SOULS!!

Matt & Johna – I LOVE YOU ALL SO VERY VERY MUCH!!!

I’ve been taking photos of Arica & her family since her oldest was in the womb!!

EIGHT YEARS!!

We had scheduled our session for the beginning of October but the weather was not agreeing with us!

We had to wait until the end of the month – when ALL the leaves were OFF the trees!!

BUT – look at those leaves ALL over the ground!!

Can you take a picture of me doing my dance poses!?

Another dance pose!!

SO MUCH FUN!!

THAT TREE!!!

We explored the creek in their backyard – because even in October – I am up for creek exploring!!

LOVE!!

SO SERIOUS!!

Arica – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me into your lives every year!!

I CANNOT WAIT to get together this summer for creek exploring!!

Heather messaged me on FACEBOOK asking if I had any October openings – I had TWO left!!

BUT – she needed to reschedule her session because her hubby had to work. It ended up raining on the original date we scheduled – so it worked out!

I had someone cancel on a Saturday evening – which is a PRIME spot – so I asked if she wanted it.

It was a REALLY cloudy day & they were hoping to go to the Halloween parade so we made it a little earlier than I normally would.

We both watched the radar & moved the time of our session about 3 times.

I’m SO thankful for the ability to be flexible in my schedule & for clients who are also flexible!

When I met Heather’s MIL – I knew I recognized her! But I couldn’t quite place it!

Then it hit me – she works at the NCA booth at the Troy Fair! We’ve peeled peaches together!

THIS GUY – I asked him to show me a silly face. He said – how about my MONSTER FACE!!

There it is again!

SO ADORABLE!!

He’s three. A very serious three.

I LOVE THAT ONE!!

SERIOUSLY – the cutest!!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!!

I LOVE THAT SHOT!!

This guy – he was SUCH a sweet old soul. He reminded me SO much of Fitzy!

Heather – THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to photograph your family! An extra thank you for being so flexible!!

I hope to see you guys again soon!
