I forgot Ella!

Oh, I don’t know how it happened, but there she was, sitting so lonely in my ‘blog’ folder, just waiting for the world to see how cute she is.  Waiting, waiting, waiting…  I’m SO sorry!!

Here she is…I’m going to start with my faovrite from the day.  Now, when I took this, I didn’t really care for it.  But once the color came out, and all you see are those big brown eyes…I just love it now!

















Here she is with Mommy & Daddy:










Something about this one I really like, too:









Then a quick switch into her Christmas dress, and she was hanging onto her bear and showing me some smiles:









Thank you guys so much!  I am so sorry for making you wait to have these on the blog! 



Jacob’s 6 Month Pics

Another 6 month old I haven’t seen since newborn…and of course Jake has grown into quite a cutie with a great smile.  Look at him:


















We shot at the beach near Matt’s mom’s house, and it was a little bright out for his little eyes, so we used this pavilion as a little shade, and he got happy quick!  Here he is with Daddy:









And the whole silly group (this makes me smile just to look at it):









And of course, here is big sis, Maddie, cute as ever:

















The sun started to go down a little, and these clouds rolled in and we ended with this shot:

















LOVE IT!!!  Thanks guys!  I’ll see you in November!


Mike & Katie’s E Session

I think we have been trying to do this shoot for months now…score a reschedule for each of us, but it all came together this week.  These two are easy on the eyes and a ton of fun to work with.  Mike wanted to start shooting at 7pm, and I said we needed to start at 6…here’s why:

















Because Mr.Sun waved bye-bye about 15 minutes after I got that, and that was my first shot at 6pm.  Totally worth you guys rushing to get ready…  🙂

Like I said, easy on the eyes…









Now, this isn’t the real thing (however, if there are any men out there who think it would be cool to have me hiding in the bushes taking pictures while you propose, I would LOVE to do that!), but this shot makes me laugh.  Apparrently, when Mike proposed, Katies gut reaction wasn’t exactly what he expected (and I can’t write those kind of words on my blog, so you’ll have to take my word for it), so we staged a little reinactment:













Katie was really great about getting down on the ground, in a tree, and even on Mike’s back (sometimes when clients are so obedient, afterwards, I think I should have tried harder to see when they’d say no):

















And a little Heather shooting thru the heather:


















Thanks so much guys!  It was great finally meeting you! 



The Webster’s

This was my first date with the Webster’s, but it went smooth as silk, and we got some great photos in honor of Andrew turning one this summer.  Here is the whole fam:

















Here is the birthday boy…I just love this shot:










You know I can’t resist chubby feet & toes:

















Or sunflare (LOVE IT!)…


















Andrew is so close to walking, by the time I get all the photos edited, he probably won’t need to hold on anymore…


















Now that I have posted all of these, I realize I didn’t pick one with pup-doodle, Chase, in it.  He was so sweet…I mean no disrespect, pal.  😉

Thanks guys!  You were great to work with!



VanderRoest Belly #3

Much has changed since the last time I saw these guys…not only are they adding baby number 3 to the pack, but they lost their beloved pooch, Carter, and since adopted Noah (who AJ adores).  Here is a look at the growing bunch:










Michelle is due in the next couple weeks, but this belly looks ready to me…



















Mommy & Rachel (who can’t wait to be a big sister again):


















AJ was slightly less intersted in taking pictures, but I love this one of he & Michelle:


















And the whole fam piled in bed checking out the pregnancy book.  Look at AJ…”The baby looks like WHAT?!”










Thanks guys…I had a blast!  Can’t wait to come back in a few weeks! 


Jax 6 Month Photos

It has been 6 months since I’ve seen these guys.  It is funny to shoot newborn photos, and then 6 months slips by, and when you go back, he’s grown into this whole person, with a giggle, and a personality…what a hoot!  And look at the toofer on the bottom:













What a ham!  Jax is perfecting the art of sitting up and smiling at the same time…I think he’s doing great!
















And I think the green walls in his room make for a fun background!










Here he is with big brother Ethan:










And when Ethan started goofing around with Mommy, Jax thought it was a good oppurtunity to eat the book while they weren’t looking:










Thanks so much for having me out!  It was great seeing you guys again!  🙂


Welcome AJ!

Just a coiuple weeks ago, I met Alan & Amanda for their belly shoot, and today I got to meet the results of the belly!  Meet AJ:










Eight days old and smiling already!  I love it…

He couldn’t decide whether he wanted to sleep or eat…so he did a little of both:

















I love this shot…can’t say why, but I love it…

















Mommy & Daddy basking in his sweetness:

















Congratualtions, you guys!  Can’t wait to watch him grow…


Ashley & Rich’s E Session

I woke to an overcast sky this morning, but fortunatley no rain, so I was able to meet Ashley & Rich at Quiet Waters for their engagement session.  These two were great to work with…willing to do whatever I asked, no matter how goofy.  But it defintley paid off…

















They are so in love…









We headed down to the overlook for some more fun…

















We were all trying not to fall down a hill while trying to get this one…I think this might be my fave:

















Thank you guys for choosing me…I had a blast!



Bryan & DeNeisha Tie the Knot!!

Last Saturday was a very rainy, icky day…until it came time to start Bryan and DeNeisha’s wedding.  These two looked stunning…

The handsome groom and their son:


















The beautiful bride:









Here is the bridal party just after the ceremony…look at that sky!  This is straight out of my camera…no photoshopping here, pal…










We got so many nice portraits before the reception started…










And this little guy was not giving me ANY smiles during the portraits…but give a kid a piece of wedding cake, and it is all grins!  What a good looking family:











Thank you guys so much for sharing your big day with me!  Here’s to a relaxing, romantic honeymoon!


Welcome Sloane!

Dewey & Noelle recently welcomed their daughter, Sloane, into their family:










She is just sweet as pie…we managed to get some sweet photos in between her snacking (I think that is her favorite thing to do):










I love this hand shot:












And she was showing off holding her head up for me, and there is something about the picture that makes me smile:









Thank you guys so much for having me out…what a beautiful girl!
