Sandy's 80th Birthday

Recently our friend Lynda contacted us to see if we could take photos at her moms 80th birthday party. Ben had to work his other job that day, but after some persistent asking from Lynda and positive encouragement from Ben, Jenny agreed to do the shoot all on her own. 

I started with some candids of everyone arriving and greeting each other, hanging out, and having a good time.

Then with some help from members of the family I wrangled everyone together for some nice family portraits. I even climbed up in their tree house to get a good shot of all 50+ people that were there.

I had a great time getting to know this fun family and I appreciate them letting me be a part of this celebration. We hope they love these photos and will cherish the memories for years to come!

Happy 80th Birthday Sandy!

James Newborn Session

We got the pleasure of meeting baby James about a week ago on his one month birthday to do some newborn photos for his mommy and daddy. 

Here are some of our favorite family shots of the cute lil' man, his daddy, mommy and big sister too! 

Then as we newborn photographers like to do, we wrapped him up, stripped him down, and put him in baskets and boxes surrounded by fluffiness. :) Here are some of our favorite shots.

We just loved getting to meet this little man and his family and hope we get to continue to watch him grow in the future! 

And just for fun, here is just a little taste of what this new big sister has in store after finally getting a little brother. :)

Staci 3 Year Session

Just the other day we got to meet the Sahm family. Their adorable little girl Staci has just turned three and they wanted some photos to mark the occasion.

The weather wasn't cooperating with us and we even had to reschedule previously because of the rain. This day it was just starting to sprinkle so we all did our best to enjoy the summer rain and capture some beautiful memories for this sweet family despite what the weather had in mind.

Here are some of our favorites of the adorable Miss Staci.

And here are some of our favorites of the rest of this fun family.

We had a great time getting to know the Sahm family, and despite the rain we still had fun and captured some beautiful memories we hope they will cherish for years to come!

Jon & Ashley

We recently got together with Jenny's little brother Jon and his girlfriend Ashley.

Jon let us in on a little secret that he wanted to propose to Ashley during our session. They've been dating for a while now and it has been so fun watching them grow together.

We started off the session with Ashley none the wiser to Jon's big secret and did some family shots with them and their fur babies.

Then we headed to the park and did a few cute couple shots before heading to the spot for the big moment.

We stayed back to give them their privacy during this intimate moment, but it sure was beautiful to watch.

We're so happy for these two and can't wait to see what the future has in store for them!

Here are some of our favorite shots from the rest of the session.

Congratulations Jon & Ashley!
