Portfolio :: {Family Portraits}

Here are some sneak peeks from a family portrait session I took at a local park.    It’s that time of year–time to order your holiday cards!  If you’re looking for a great place to get yours printed, you can use this link to TinyPrints for 10 free cards!  As always, if you like what you see, book a session with me!

:: Portfolio :: Shawn :: {Portrait Photography}

We snapped a few quick portraits for Shawn–he’s an amazing realtor!  If you’re looking for a great realtor to help you find your dream home, look him up.  Ace is sometimes one of the friendly faces you meet at their office, so we made sure to snap a few with him (and his cute little floppy tongue).  Too often “head shots” or professional portraits end up looking a little…. stuffy!  I love capturing people in beautiful natural light in their element.  Can you guess which portrait came after the queue “I want to sell YOU a house!”? A little on the nose, but still a nice shot.  🙂

:: Portfolio :: Hoover Family Portraits {Family Portrait Photography}

I don’t think I’ve found myself laughing and smiling through a session as much as I did with the Hoovers.  They are such a sweet family and I love that they want their pets included in their family photos.  I am always up for that challenge.  What better setting than with a gorgeous vintage John Deere?!  “It’s been SO LONG since we’ve taken family photos professionally.” I hear this alllll the time, so it is always such a joy to capture family portraits.  You can’t see me, but I unintentionally had joined in on the plaid love.  I love the way these turned out.  Enjoy!

:: Portfolio :: Cole :: {Senior Portraits}

I had the pleasure of spending a late afternoon with the Hoovers soaking up sunshine and a perfect little breeze while we captured Cole’s Senior Portraits, along with a few other sets of portraits (might as well!  I love when we can.), which I’ll share soon.  I was so grateful to hear from Mindy, as I took her older son, Chase‘s portraits a few years ago.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather.  Or cuter dogs… you’ll see what I mean… Enjoy!

Portfolio :: Kim & The Crew :: Part One :: {Family Portraits}

Kim asked me to come out for an afternoon filled with family portraits.  Fall in the Midwest can be so unpredictable and I’ve been crossing my fingers for the last few weeks that the weather would cooperate!  We got a VERY sunny afternoon with weather in the mid-50’s.  So thankful!  And I’m really happy with the warm glow the sun provided in the photos.

Side note: As I go through my final sort of the photos and type out this post, Sunday Night Football is on and I am so annoyed by that song. haha you know the song, right?  “Waitin All Day for Sunday Night!” ugh.  I love a good game of football, but that song can go.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite images from the larger group photos we took.  I’m splitting this into at least 3 posts, I think., because I’m running into my usual problem of having a hard time narrowing down my favorites to just a handful.  So watch out for a few more posts in the coming weeks!

Portfolio :: Mattson-Larsons :: Family Portraits

You may remember the sneak peeks from last week of Kohl’s senior portrait session.  We also snuck in some family portraits while I was there and I’m excited to share them with you.  Ben & Jenny live in a gorgeous home built in the 1950s that they have been working hard to renovate.  I love being able to capture people in their home and where they are most comfortable.
