Elzy Family

We've been trying to fit this session in for a while. Lacie originally wanted a snow session, but mother nature didn't cooperate! Fast forward to spring and once again, mother nature caused us to push things back.  I'm totally ok with it because I am totally in love with the images we finally captured!  Check things out for yourself....

I think this is my absolute favorite of the family shots....lots of laughter, genuine smiles, and a whole lotta love!!! <3<3

The Meurlot Family

This family was willing to try out a new location for me.  I'd say these images speak for themselves :) Thank you for trusting me!

Cullen is such a character. But I'll tell you what, he has an infectious personality and you can't help but giggle when he's around!

Baby Matthew

I love photographing soft, squishy newborns...there's just something about their sweet smell and soft skin. Totally takes me back to when my girls were babies. I miss that stage of their lives but part of the fun is watching them grow.  With each of newborn clients, I get to see them grow and develop little personalities too.  

Matthew was such a perfect model the day he came to see me.  He woke up for barely 10 minutes-just long enough to snack on a little milk and then fall back to sleep.  While most newborn sessions can take anywhere from two to three hours, Matthew rocked it out in an hour and a half!! He definitely earned a gold star that day!!

Here are a few of my favorites! Be sure to show him some love!

Had to make sure we got a shot of Matthew's momma...I was so happy she didn't hesitate to jump in front of the camera. Isn't she beautiful?!

Oberheim family

Hey! Glad to see you made your way over to my blog! I can't guarantee I will be consistent in my blogging.  With three young girls and a husband you can understand how family life can suck up most of my time. But I'm going to give it my best shot :) 

I wanted to share one of my favorite families with you-I've known them for quite some time. Joe is actually my husband's youngest brother :) While I could go on and on sharing some juicy stories from back in the day...I will just share some of my favorites from their session! 

Aren't they just the most adorable family?! And can we talk a little about how well Chelsea did dressing everyone? I love how she mixed patterns-I'm horrible at dressing myself so maybe I just need to keep her on speed dial! Oh, and this may just be my absolute favorite image of them. I mean, seriously?!

This kid right here is so full of spunk...he keeps all of us on our toes (and in a good way! :) )

It's so important to get a picture with just mom and dad.&nbsp; Days of busy work schedules, school, errands, dinners etc. can take its toll on a marriage.&nbsp; Sometimes you just need a reminder you're in this crazy world working through it all together.&nbsp; A team. One freakin' awesome team :) Having an image like this in your home can do just that-so here is where I say print this one REALLY, REALLY big!

I usually shoot most of my pictures horizontal and am trying to be more intentional in shooting vertically.&nbsp; During our shoot, Landen would turn his head every time I turned my camera! I couldn't leave that image out-it was so funny to watch him!
