Family of 3

Last summer I had the privilege of photographing a much larger family group and one of the families included was the Smith family!  I love when someone contacts me after being a part of another shoot.  It is little things like that, that keep me going!  The wind and cool temperatures made this spring portrait session feel more like early March than May!  None the less this family of 3 worked the wind and cool temps to result in some stunning family pictures.  Ms. Brooklyn was full of personality, which made for great candid shots.  Here are some of my favorite shots from the session and be sure to check all the Smith Family proofs here.

 

 

Pegan Spring Family Pictures

As promised…The Pegan Family’s spring portraits.  I posted Addison’s 1 year pictures last week.  They turned out beautifully and I thought it would be hard to top some of those candid moments, but we did!  These are some of my favorite family portraits with young kids to date!  They turned out absolutely stunning.  What a beautiful family, stunning location, and perfect day.  Miranda did an excellent job with outfit selections which brought everything together for this family portrait session.  I must admit I got snap happy and I will apologize to Miranda, because now she has a ton of proofs to decide from.  Here are some of my favorites, but you have to take a look at all the proofs from the Pegan Family Session.  

 

Addison is 1

When Miranda contacted me about doing her daughters 1 year old portraits and some cake smash pictures I was so excited.  Miranda and I worked together years ago doing little league sports shoots.  We have both started families and it was wonderful to meet hers!  Miranda wanted to get family photos, portraits of her two daughters together, and Addison’s 1 year portraits.  This is a lot to fit into one session, especially for two little one’s.  So we decided to break it into two sessions.  The first session focused on Addison and the other the family and the girls!  During this session we did  Addison’s 1 year pictures and they turned out beautifully.  Addison is on the move and she kept me on my toes which made for lovely candid portraits.  Here are some of my favorites, but don’t forget to check out all of Addison’s 1 year portraits.  Also, stay tuned…their family portraits will be posted in the next couple of weeks; the location is stunning.  

 

JT’s Senior Wrestling Portraits

Senior portraits are one of my favorite types of portraits to shoot.  This session was extra special!  JT is my cousin’s son and it was truly a privilege to photograph his senior wrestling pictures.  JT is one of the most dedicated and hardworking athletes that I know.  I thought it only fair to do my very best to reflect the hard work and dedication in his wresting pictures.  Great Job JT!  We loved watching you this season. Here are some of my favorite shots from this senior portrait session.  Check out all the proofs from JT’s wrestling session here.

This is JT’s 2nd session. Follow this link to view proofs from JT’s first senior portrait session.
 

Everly is 9 Months Old

It’s hard to believe 9 months ago I was rushing to the hospital for the birth of this little peanut, Everly.  She is no doubt the apple of her parents eye.  Everly’s 9 month portraits were more like shooting a 1 year portrait session.  She is already pulling herself up onto things, standing on her own and even taking a couple steps!  Slow down Ms. Everly…you are getting too big, too fast.  These 9 month lifestyle portraits turned out beautifully.  Here are some of my favorites and don’t forget to check out all of Everly’s 9 month portrait session here.
