The Johnston Family

This shoot was so much fun!  I went out to their house in the country and shot in the leaves from a huge tree in their front yard.  It was relaxes and easy and really cold but so much fun!

 Oh yes... even Donut the dog got his own photo!

Baby Maija

Baby Maija was 9 days old when we photographed her and she was having a bit of a grumpy day.  But in the end persistance and patience (and a lot of nursing!) won out and we ended up getting some wonderful shots!  It was such a pleasure to shoot her and catch up with her mom, Kristin.  She and I were next door neighbors until age 10 in a little town about 150 miles away.  It's crazy that photographing her baby brought us back in touch.  I'm so thankful for the little extra things that make this business so special and fun!

Pisha Family

This family was so fun and adorable!  They even did a great job of scouting out the site and finding places they liked for photographs.  Here are some of my favorites!

Jackie, Steve and the kids

Jackie came to me on referral from Kate's Mom (see Kate's photos below).  I hadn't met Jackie or her family until this day but it couldn't have gone better.  They are just relaxed, no muss kind of clients and I love that!  Plus they have adorable, active twins (Hi to Jude and Kyza!).  They were so much fun!  Here's a few of my favorites.

Carter's Playdate Session

I love these short and sweet playdate sessions for the little ones.  Carter is two and very active but we were able to get some great shots.  Isn't he just adorable?!?
