W family

I was so happy to be able to spend the morning with this sweet family – also good friends of ours.  Crisis #1 was narrowly averted as we realized our location was covered in fine black dust that seemed to jump right out onto the kids clothes.  Becky, you were a trooper and took everything in stride (even if you were freaking out on the inside)!  Crisis #2 was also averted as we were NOT stranded by car trouble.  In the end, we got some beautiful pictures to help you remember this unique time in your lives . . . assisted in part by a little, yellow car.


Matt – High School Senior

Matt is another senior that I’ve watched grow up right in front of me.  He has enough personality to keep up with his red hair, which has been his defining feature since he was little.  As you can see by his pictures, he loves baseball and cars.  A certain car in particular. . . which someday will hopefully be his.  You had better get that in writing, Matt!  Here are some of my favorite pictures of the day – enjoy!

Kaley – High School Senior

I have known Kaley ever since she was born, so it’s pretty hard to believe she’s a bona-fide grownup!  She is clearly a beautiful girl with a happy and sweet spirit.  I’m so excited to see what God has in store for her over the next few years.  We had lots of fun finding the perfect “country” spots for the “country” girl.  Old barns, tractor wheels, and pink boots . . . doesn’t get much better than that.  Thanks Kaley for an awesome day.  Here are some of my favorite shots.  Hope you enjoy!

Happy Easter!

Well it is never an easy task to photograph more than one child at a time. . . even if they are your own.  But it is a mother’s duty to document anything and everything, and Easter was no exception.  So I dressed up the kids and marched them down the street to a nearby farm.  Thanks to the timely spring weather the ground was soft and muddy.  Perfect for white shirts and dress shoes!  With much bribing. . . and threatening. . .we managed to get the following pictures.  I will not bore you with the 256 other pictures that did NOT turn out.
