Wow, were these a hit this year!! I could not have been more excited about this set up when my designer told me her idea a few months ago. Finding a vintage red truck up to our standards wasn’t easy, but it came together better than we could have imagined. I typically don’t repeat my holiday mini set ups from year to year, but I had such a long waiting list for these that I may just have to bring them back in 2016! So if you know anyone with a red vintage truck who’d be willing to let us borrow it for a day or two, let me know! With over 25 families participating this year, I couldn’t possibly share every image, so here is a just a fun little sampling. :)
I have been looking forward to this session all season long! I met this lovely downstate family back in 2013 when they took a chance on me and drove north 2 hours for our session. It’s so flattering that they loved my work enough to make the trip…twice! Mason simply has just one of the best personalities ever. Truly, I could have spent days with him. I will never forget his adorable little voice shouting at me from the parking lot after we said good-bye “thank you for the pictures!!”. Seriously, swoooonnnnnn….
I could go on for pages about how wonderful this family is. Inside and out. But honestly, you didn’t come to read a bunch of sappy words telling you that they are the kindest, funniest and sweetest people you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting. Instead, I’ll let the images speak for themselves…
Oh and Ps. If you see Cara Olsen out and about today, please wish her the happiest of days. It’s sorta her birthday. And her birthday is sorta the biggest deal ever. Love you girl!!
The second I laid eyes on this beauty, I knew this was going to be an awesome session. And it totally was. She stole my heart from the very first frame…and frankly, if the sun wasn’t setting, I may have just kept on photographing her and her lovely parents for hours and hours…I mean seriously, how amazing are they??
This family was just awesome to photograph. Each girl had a totally unique personality which was just an absolute pleasure to capture on camera. We got some sweet, some sassy and everything in-between!!
It feels like just yesterday I visited this newborn little boy and his lovely parents…and here he is just turning 4. How does time go so fast?! I’ve absolutely loved seeing him grow over the years and capturing his milestones. I sometimes have to pinch myself to remind myself that this is real life…I really have this job…I really have these amazing clients…gosh how lucky I am!!
As we planned this birthday session, mom wanted two things. Water and sun. This location could not have been more perfect. I loved watching him play, I loved watching the light change, I loved playing with him, his parents and the amazing light the sky offered us that evening. We’ve been trying for a sunset session for years and the weather gods finally smiled on us this year. Everything about this session makes my photographer heart happy…
See you soon guys!! xoxoxoxo
These three girls are beyond gorgeous…both in looks and personality. It makes me almost wish I had considered just. one. more…
Fall is officially in full swing! The year is winding down quickly and my calendar is jam packed with fun stuff between now and then! For those of you who still want a 2015 session, here is what is left…
Holiday Minis – sold out
Weekday Bundles: Lots of flexibility with these!
And because no blog post is complete without an image, here is fall favorite from last year. :)
I have been photographing this family for three summers now and every session I think “how can next year possibly be any better!?” and somehow, it always is. This family is full of so much personality it’s impossible not to capture amazingness every time I pull my camera out around them. Couple that with one of the most amazing locations I have ever shot in, and this session just makes my photographer heart very, very happy. Thanks as always for an amazing evening guys!!!
I could write a book about this family. You know when you meet someone and it’s like this instant love? And you quickly wonder how you ever managed through your life without them? I love Jaime for so many reasons, but mostly for her laugh…and her ability to always make those around her laugh. So it’s no surprise that her daughters are equally as amazing as she is. Oh, and Dave isn’t so bad himself. :) I mean, he had the good taste to marry one of the best women and moms I have the pleasure of knowing. I feel so flipping blessed to have been trusted to capture this amazing family…and to have them in my life. Love you guys!!!!
