This group was full of energy, and Claire had other things she would rather have been doing, but she pulled it out in the end. 

























And nothing beats the “if you smile for me one more time, you can make a funny face” bribe:










Thanks so much guys!  It was fun!


This is one fun group…never short for smiles!









Love this one of the kiddos:









Mommy & Sean:


















Daddy & Gracie getting goofy:

















Always a pleasure…


Payton just turned one, so she was due for a new photo…what a cutie:

















I think I finished this shoot in like 20 minutes…almost TOO easy…










Tyson helped out anytime she seemed like she needed a tickle:


















Happy Birthday Big Girl!


The Titgemeyers

Fall wouldn’t be fall without a couple meetings with this crazy group.  Never lacking for a laugh, always off the chart for the cute-factor.  This was one of the first shots we took, and it is my favorite of the whole gang:


















Isn’t there something about this that makes you want to put your hair in pig tails and bows??

These girls were all over the place…but I love this shot of them together:










I am pretty sure that is was Emma riding on my back like a pony bouncing up and down that was making Margot smile in this one:

















And Emma was just a big ball of goofiness, so it wasn’t too hard to get a smile from her.  Just hard to get one without her eyes crossed or tongue hanging out…stuff like that.

















But it was fun!  Never a dull moment!  See you all again in a few weeks!



The Bartlett’s

I haven’t seen these guys since I did belly photos for them last year.  Miss Teagan is a year old, and just as cute as can be.  She was all smiles for me when she got out of the car.  We sat down to do some photos, and the story changes.  Apparrently, they stopped at Taco Bell for a bite on their drive down (not to toot my own horn too much, but they travelled from Delaware to see me) 🙂  and Teagan gobbled down a bean burrito.  Well, like any of us…a rumbly tumbly ensued.  (I thought it was pretty funny, but Teagan was less than happy.)  But she did pull it out in the end and we got some nice shots.


















Love this tongue:










Just before she really lost it:









And last but not least…my favorite:

















What an angel…

Thanks guys!  Great seeing you again!

The Wall Family

It is just ridiculousa that this blog is so NOT up-to-date.  I apologize!  This time of year is so busy for me, and it seems that this is the first thing to get neglected.

It was 10 days ago that I shot the Wall family.  It was a beautiful day, and we got some fun stuff.  Here is the whole group:












We had some fun on the playground at the end:





























































Lots of giggles…

Thanks so much for having me out!  And sorry this took So long…



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!
