It’s been a LONG time since I took photos of my kids with my parents!!

BASEBALL in the backyard!!

I can’t deal with how GIANT this guy is! He’s only TEN and he’s THIS tall already!?

Hey Enoch – can you just make a normal face!? No!? Okay – weirdness will do too!

SNOWBALL!!

Time for a bigfoot hunt!!

I need to make sure to bring my camera with me on adventures more often!

Jan REALLY wanted a picture with her piggies – so we made sure to take a few!!

I LOVE those piggy snouts!!

Silhouette shots might be my favorite!!

She is SO happy to be walking!!

Jan & Nick – thank you SO much for asking me back into your lives over the years!!

I LOVE photographing your wedding and your pregnancy and your children as they grow – it’s one of my greatest joys in life!!

She is the CUTEST!!

Stay tuned – because I’ve got lots more to show you!!

*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!!
