:: A Baby Shower ::

Of course I said yes when my sister asked me to bring my camera to her baby shower.  We took a few family photos and of course a few photos of the mama-to-be.  The very bottom photo in black & white is my favorite from the session.  Can’t wait to meet my little niece/nephew in a few weeks! ❤

:: 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!

I had the honor of photographing Hannah.  It was fun to spend the afternoon together and it was a huge compliment to get to work with her after working with her sister Grace!  We had fun!  Here are a few of my favorites from our session (please forgive the sideways images!)…

Hannah wanted to include Lady in a few of her photos. Adorableness ensued.

Introducing: Lydia! {newborn photography}

My sweet niece turned 4 months old a few days ago and I got to visit her and hold her again for the first time since shortly after she was born.  I hate living so far from my dear friends and family, but it certainly makes the time we get together precious.  Here are a few of my favorites from our afternoon session…

When I arrived, she was snoozin, but she quickly woke up and her big eyes in this photo make me smile!

At the end of her session, I got to hold her and snuggle her.  She fell asleep in my arms after a long day of playing and lots of outfit changes.  She did great!  Auntie Jenny loves you, Lydia!  I’m looking forward to watching you grow up into a beautiful woman.  And I can’t wait to geek out and take photos of you along the way!

Brandon & Jadie are such a sweet couple and I was so honored to photograph Brandon & Jadie’s wedding reception in a beautiful small town park with a big gazebo.  Their family and friends were there to celebrate with them and enjoy some refreshments and Frisbee.  The lovebirds had a small ceremony and took off to Italy for their honeymoon earlier in the summer, which is totally the way to go, in my opinion, if you don’t want to fuss with all the details of a big ceremony and reception.

Brandon & Jadie, thanks for trusting me to document your special day!
