2 kids, 2 crutches and 2 dogs-a first!

Our last session with Jack and Claire went so well! Claire had injured herself rock climbing a few days before and fractured her foot so she traveled from spot to spot on crutches, what a trooper! Their mom also wanted some photos with the dogs who sat still long enough for us to capture some great shots. These two kids were so photogenic and cooperative that everything went so quickly and turned out great, thanks!

Of course we had to get a picture with her crutches!

Jack was so handsome

We were trying to get Claire to show us her serious side and instead caught this candid which I just love!

What luck!

We have been BUSY! We have found a new favorite spot to take pictures at and it is fabulous! We took pictures of the Hannah;s the other day and they were so fun to work with. The dad kept us constantly laughing, Alec couldn't seem to keep a straight face and the girls loved taking photos. While we were at our new spot the man who owns the land came by and he was driving a great old Chevy. He let us use it and here is what we got! More to come with this family because we have more great things to show you!

Learning what works

The first time you meet a client you want to make sure they feel completely comfortable. It always seems easier with little kids because they usually aren't shy about anything at all. We shot a great family the other day and their oldest was Jessie a teenager. At the beginning she was a bit timid, but by the end she really opened up and we couldn't get her to stop taking pictures! We have learned form there one magic word:
Facebook.
All we need to do is tell them they will have some fabulous photos for their facebook page and they are game to try anything. We just love the shots we got of her. It was also fun to watch their family dynamic, these other photos show just how much fun they have with each other.

I ♥ Faces/Week 46 Sun Flare Photo

We are trying something new! One of my good friends suggested we check out this blog and we love it! The challenge for this week is sun flare. We have been playing around with using sun flare which is hard to achieve, but so fun to try! Who would have ever guessed this couple has 3 kids-and the oldest is a teenager!

So, what do you think?

Two Turkeys

It was so fun to see our friends Owen and Grace again! They were one of our very first photo shoots that we had and they were back again! Owen and Grace are twins who get along incredibly well. They loved being goofy together and really loved the chance to make silly faces for the camera...nothing is better than a happy returning client and getting the chance to watch them grow!

Urban twist

We just loved this family. They were incredibly fun and were up for trying anything! We must have changed location 4 or 5 times and all the kids were real troopers. The moving around paid off as we were able to get some really great shots of this wonderful family!

Sisters are the best

We had the opportunity to capture a family with 3 little girls, they were stunning. Mom had them all dressed so cute which got us excited! S, G and J were so sweet to each other. If Miss J wasn't smiling, the other two girls would do anything to try and make her laugh. I can see that as these girls grow they will certainly have an amazing relationship. Thanks for a great photo shoot, we really loved capturing your adorable family!

Table for eight!

Wow, we had a challenge this past Saturday with a family of eight! Kudos to Mike and Elise who handled them all so well. Honestly, even with the energy of their 18 month old we got some really great shots! Their kids are absolutely gorgeous, each with their own look. Check out Elise, who would have ever guessed she has 6 kids! They were so fun to photograph, especially since they knew they were getting ice cream afterwards...thanks again guys, it was a blast!

What a Beautiful Day

It is always such a pleasure to see a brides "wedding of her dreams" come about. Each is so unique in their own way and beautiful to witness. This wedding was no exception. This couple was the real deal, they were in such another world, as you should be when you just married the man/woman of your dreams! It was fun to watch the new love interact with one another, but this time as man and wife. Congrats to the Hansens!

Prima Ballerina

I have been dying to take some dance photos and when my friend needed photos I jumped at the chance. Kelsey is about to preform in the Nutcracker and she is an amazing ballerina. I remembered a few terms from back when I danced (a long time ago) but other than that I was at a loss for dance positions. She was so graceful and willing to try anything, we had a great time. We had no idea the field we were at was also home to an ultimate frisbee course...we had to dodge a few players during our shoot! Here's your sneak peek, hope you love them as much as I do! More to come...I got to take photos of her sister too!

Sneak Peek

Today I got to photograph Ms. Paige who is now 6 months old! I photographed her when she was first born and boy has she grown. She has the most scrumptious thighs I have ever seen-the kind that are only cute when you are a baby and not a grown woman...what a cutie she is! Her older sister was there for the shoot too, she was a great helper in getting Paige to smile and a beauty in front of the camera. Here's your sneak peek Annie!

Two of the cutest kids ever!

We had the opportunity to photograph a wonderful family the other day. The kids were a blast to work with and very photogenic. We were able to try some new things and some new props and the photos are looking amazing! More of a sneak peek to come, but these were already finished and I just couldn't resist!
