Beach Time

My family went camping down at the beach. Since it was perfectly timed to my return from maternity leave I did a session for my niece who just turned 11. Part annual pictures, part new and exciting location. Everyone needs a photographer with them on a beach vacation, or maybe every photographer needs a willing subject at the beach. Either way, it was perfect!

Last session of the year!

This session got postponed many many times due to rain, and it's literally the only session I've ever had to reschedule for rain! The smiles from this sweet little girl was totally worth it, she radiates when she's being snuggled. 

Never a dull moment

Oh this family:) Keeping things unique and fun all on their own. 

October Family Pictures

 I am so thankful that this family, good friends of mine, asked me to take their pictures again this year. I can't even explain what a special opportunity it is to bond with families over the course of a session, it's just fun! Dad noted that I am a serious over-clicker, but with good reason: the pictures that elicit the most from me are the in between shots, there's just something special about capturing life as it happens. 

Taking family shots, everyone is looking at me and I accidentally lost their attention by pointing out, "Oh look, turkey's!!", it was still totally worth it. 

Annual Pictures

My 12 year old nephew took some annual pictures with me. This is my attempt at taking 'cool' pictures for a hip middle schooler!

September Family Session

Although it was an unusually hot evening for the middle of September, this family session was so enjoyable and fun. I've known Momma for awhile, but this was my first time meeting her family and I so enjoyed watching their sweet dynamic. You can definitely see it shine in the photos. 

August Family Session

When you have the problem of too many adorable pictures to choose from... Those gorgeous eyes, they ALL have them!! I had so much fun with this family, good friends of mine who happen to be such an incredibly beautiful family as well, inside and out. I need to go back to that creek, it was full of crazy beautiful color!

Summer Maternity

Maternity session at the lake on a warm summer evening with a beautiful sunset? Totally worth it. Two pregnant women hiking ALLTHEWAY out to where the low lake is right now? Might have to think on that one again. Either way we got some amazing sunsets with a gorgeous growing family anxiously awaiting the arrival of their baby boy.

10 years old

This girl just turned 10 years old and what a beautiful girl she's grown to be!
