Last weekend I got to create some Christmas card material with these sweet families. The chillier weather got here just in time to get out the sweaters and surely enough, these guys put me right in Holiday mood!

Last weekend I got to finally visit a friend of mine’s place. She lives way out there with kiddos and horses, dogs and chickens. I slightly remember hearing a goat too….? So somehow I caught myself humming tunes from”the sound of music” while strolling around with this crew…:)  and here are some of my favorites:dsc_3484

 

Last week I got to photograph these guys again. Rina and I have taken their family pics a few years ago. Since then, a few more grandchildren came along and Nana and Bob are ready to add more pictures to their walls.

The most precious pictures always happen when no one is looking. So here are some of my favorites…dsc_2640

Today I got to photograph this sweet girl. She is a senior this year and loves Starbucks and football. So we strolled around at a local park and got to enjoy this beautiful Fall weather while creating these images. Isn’t she just gorgeous?

This week I got to photograph these guys again. I have taken pics of them for many years now and remember the 5 youngest ones as babies. So whenever I get to see them I feel like an extended aunt who get’s to visit twice a year and hear all about the lost tooth, the dance and guitar lessons and newest toys. And when then kids hop into my car, announcing they want to go home with me: I am just completely happy and convinced I am doing something right. Just love these guys.dsc_2285

Last Saturday I got to hang out with these sweet guys. We explored the trails of Lost River Cave while pulling the little ones along in the wagon. And just to say: Moms and dads of toddlers and preschoolers are heroes in my book. I remember it well. The diaper bags, the constant watching of those “independent”, unsteady feet, the tantrums. I remember days without showers, cause I never got that minute.

But I also remember this:dsc_1838

Sweet snuggles and hugs and sticky kisses.

Thank you for letting me come along and capture this season in you all’s  life.  Your family is precious!

And here is your sneak peek!

 

 

 

A couple of weekends ago, Rina and I photographed these folks. Grandma and grandpa, uncles, aunts and cousins came together to create some memories. I am so glad we got to meet you guys and here is your sneak peek:dsc_1495

Last week I got to photograph this fun senior. His personality and humor totally cracked me up during the shoot. He has three brothers and I would love to get them all in front of my lens sometime….no telling what they come up with. Needless to say these pics turned out totally awesome and reflect this young man’s creativity and personality. So this is class’ of 2016/2017 sneak peek!

When I was little I spent many hours on my great grandma’s farm. There were cows to chase, apples to pick and boredom never an issue. Happy memories.

This little guy seems to be in for the same treat. I got to follow him and mom and dad around and was reminded of how much is going on when living on a farm.

A helping hand is always needed when catching the cow, fixing grandpa’s truck or finding eggs. And in between a cuddle with mom and dad. If that’s not time well spent, than I don’t know what is:).dsc_1320

This week I got to hang out with this young man and his mom. Calvin is a senior this year and loves running. He has quite a collection of medals and ribbons that left my oldest in awe and reminded me of the races I used to run….

So thanks guys for hanging with me. Can’t wait to show you the rest of the pics. And here is your sneak peek:dsc_0622
