K Family

It was a very hot and humid evening during our shoot, but these guys did GREAT! I absolutely adore spending time with this family and I do not get to do it often enough (seriously we owe you guys a Settlers of Catan night at our house sometime!) As you can see, they have a third little one on the way and I am so thrilled for them! Doesn’t Christi just glow? Gorgeous! It’s always fun being pregnant at the same time as another momma friend. 🙂 Thanks again for a fabulous shoot K family!


H Family

Has it really been almost a whole year since I had the pleasure of capturing this adorable family? Man, does time fly when you have little ones! We again visited the beautiful Maple Grove arboretum, though it was a little warmer out this year than last time and there were different flowers blooming, giving us a different backdrop for some of the images. Little H has grown up SO much in such a short amount of time. I loved listening to her talk to her mom and dad, blowing bubbles, and chomping down on that delicious looking cupcake! She is such a cute and spunky little lady! And if you didn’t notice, she’s going to be a big sister in just a few months! This was such a fun, laugh filled shoot! H family I sure hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

K Family

This beautiful woman is one of my very best friends. I have the privilege of having known her since birth, she has always been a very kind hearted, funny lady and she is well known for being tenacious (particularly with sports). I love her and all that she has become. Her little family is pretty cool too, her husband is such a caring man with a great sense of humor. They are perfect for each other. I seriously cannot get over how big their little man has gotten! And if you haven’t noticed, he’s going to be a big brother pretty soon. Their next little boy is due in March.  🙂

I got to have the very fun experience of taking these photos on their family farm, which is not even a mile south of the farm I grew up on. I could literally see my old house (now my brother’s and his lovely wife’s) while on this shoot. It brought back some wonderful memories. Thank you so much for having me take your photos K family! It was SO much fun!

W Family

This fine family came aaaaaall the way down from North Dakota just to have me take their pictures! (Well they had a wedding to attend as well, but that’s just details. ;)) We were blessed to have them spend the night with us as well. I first met them through Campus Crusade and I am so glad that I’ve kept in touch with them since. They are fun, kind and intelligent people and their girls are honestly the sweetest little ladies ever. They played so nicely with my two daughters!

I love the outfits that Lexie put together for the shoot, they coordinated so nicely! She is one of the craftiest ladies I know, she’s made a number of things for my girls: a quiet book, bloomers, skirts, shoes and a nursing cover for me! And guess what? She made quite a few of the pieces in their outfits as well as the fun JOY banner. How cool is that? One of my favorite parts about this shoot was helping them create a “We’re Expecting!” announcement via a little pair of white shoes. 🙂 Lexie put it up as her Facebook profile banner and it has garnered many comments and likes already. I can hardly wait to meet the newest member of their family, they will no doubt be very loved. Thanks so much for having me take your pictures, it was great spending time with you guys and I hope we get to see you again soon!

Baby Bump: F Family

I was very excited when my friend K asked me to take her maternity pictures, though not quite as excited as I was when she first told me she was expecting! She is such a beautiful pregnant lady. Doesn’t she just glow? Two of my very favorite shots from this session were her idea: the first being the “frame” picture with her daughter and the second being the one in which her hubby is kissing her tummy and her daughter (who is on daddy’s shoulders) is giving her a kiss on the lips. Both turned out so sweetly! I always love it when my clients share their ideas with me.

Now in just a few more weeks I get to take this little guy’s newborn pictures! 😀
