Annette & Ahmet Family Portraits

In the cold of winter, it's hard for me to remember that the world was actually this warm and green!  Looking back through some sessions from the summer/fall brings back happy memories (and hope!) that the more pleasant seasons that will come back again like always.

It had been a while since I had photographed Annette and her family, and little Emre is a big dude now!  He was so sweet and full of personality, it was fun to spend some time with him.  As these photos bring me joy of warmer days, I can only hope that they will bring even greater joy to Annette's family through the years!

Ayla T Senior Portraits

I L-O-V-E-D doing Ayla’s senior photos!! An awesome gal who rocked her shoot in a motorcycle jacket and a flower crown!  After we ran around in the Haymarket finding fun spots to do photos in, we went to her parents acreage.  The late afternoon sunlight giving some serious sun flare, not something I normally do but it just seemed to fit this time!  As we walked around the wooded areas and up and down the hills with native prairie grass chest height high, she told me that when she was 5 years old she told her brother that she wanted to do her senior photos here.  I guess he laughed at her and said, “What photographer is going to come all the way out here?”  If only I could do every session at your house Ayla:)  You're a beautiful soul inside and out, and I wish you the best of luck in all that you do!

And yes, if you STILL haven't scheduled your senior photos, email me asap for info!

Photographers being friends:) Part 1

When I talk to other wedding professionals, florists, caterers, etc, they almost always mention how impressed they are that photographers like to play so nicely together.  And it's true!  We're very friendly with each other, and get together in big groups for dinner or drinks when we have time.  While chatting with two of my photographer friends, we decided to do a mini shoot-out together, where we all go someplace pretty and get to photograph each other.  Which is AWESOME.  

Here are friends Aubrey and Josh Leeker, with June and Winnie.
