I had never shot in this location before, but was excited to find it right before our shoot, I think it is perfect with her instrument. Thanks Mary for a fun afternoon!

Sunday, October 18, 2009

Matt is a great guy, from a fabulous family. He was very entertaining to photograph, he kept pulling out all of these crazy faces and poses that his mom warned him she would use for blackmail later on, you’ll have to ask him to see those. Thanks…

lots o’ love
Tuesday, September 29, 2009

I know some photographers dread or even refuse to do an “extended family” shoot, but I have grown to love them, it is so fun to watch the family interact and the grandparents are on cloud 9 having all of their children and grandchildren around, pure bliss for them.

Monday, September 28, 2009

I photographed Eric a week earlier for his senior pics, and then did this family shoot, this is my favorite image from that session. There is something so wonderful in their eyes in this shot, you can tell no matter how nonchalant they act towards each other there…

Avery Marie
Friday, September 25, 2009

These pics almost make me want to have another baby. You have seen Avery before in a stunning pic with her dad, but I thought you should see the rest of her pics, including one with her gorgeous mama.

it’s about time for a senior post don’t ya think?
Friday, September 18, 2009

This good lookin’ chap was fun to photograph, guys are always so leary at first, they think they will despise having their senior pics done and are only doing it to appease their mamas, then much to their surprise we end up having a good time. I…
