A few weeks back I had this sweet family over for a family portrait. I do most of my portraits outside, but we decided to stay inside because of the little prince. How sweet was he! Of course it’s always quite the challenge with those little ones. The prince needed to eat and then after at least two more feedings was ready for a close-up. It was too funny! I guess he slept like a king after we were all done. Thanks for being so patient mom and dad!

Here are some of my favorite images! Enjoy!

What a treat! On a cool fall day I drove up and down and around the bend. To find this beautiful family and even Senior Pictures for a German Exchange Student! There was beauty, a mini guitar, chickens, horses and lots of grass.

Thank you so much for inviting me down to do your family portraits! I had such a fun time!

Lisa told me she wanted some images of her family…hey…Blake…we missed you!!!…walking in a field. The day we had picked was hot, but also beautiful. I brought them to one of my in-laws’ fields. Two days later the hay was cut…great timing!

Kennedy kept us laughing with all her fun comments and looking totally in another direction. Thanks for walking with me and making it great!!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

The last girl graduating…so everyone is getting together. Totally means you need to be quick…unless there is a wedding coming up soon.

What an amazing family that just poured into the park for pictures! Everyone dressed in such summery attire. Very cool!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

These images are from Christmas. The next step took a while… so long that in fact… a Valentine’s Day card was created. Who cares!

The kids did such a good job. They posed so sweetly for me.

We also attempted to get a shot with their two dogs…maybe next year…ha ha ha…

So…a little late, but Happy Valentine’s Everyone!!!

Four amazing (!) kids came to my house to have their pictures taken. Usually four kids is quite the job, but these guys were so easy to work with. Thanks so much kids!!!

All the leaves were gone, but the weather was still nice enough. The one thing that is nice that time of year is the light. I also love how the dry grass ads a cool feel to the images.

Here are some of my favorite images. Enjoy!

 

 

 

It was a blustery cool afternoon when we headed to Decorah (IA) to finally get the annual family photos done. There are so many cool backgrounds in that town and it makes it really fun to shoot. The only thing that was a little hard, was the fact that the wind was so cool that it was hard to get comfortable. The kids were troupers and we still got lots of fun shots. Thanks guys!

Grandma & Grandpa joined in for some of the shots. What sweet people! I see where Mom gets her good looks!

After the Christmas card was finished, Mom decided she wanted to do something different this year. Love the idea of a photo of the kids on an actual stamp!! GO MOM! Check out the very first image. Cool idea!

I have so many favorites…and here are some of them. Enjoy!

What beautiful girls!!! Thanks for inviting me to your home to photograph the little girls. What a treat!

Lauren posed away for me, while Kennedy just wanted to scoot on her butt. Thanks to mom and dad we were able to get the littlest princess to sit still a few times. Go teamwork!

Love the shots in the bedroom where big sister is reading to a, for a little moment, very interested little sister. Such sweet girls!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Every now and then people drop off some old images hoping I can do something to restore them. I can honestly say it is a joy to work on someone’s old family photo. There are memories of great times, styles, funny hair, cool toys and sooo much more. I know that “way back” a photo was so much more important that it seems today. Not that it isn’t important to photograph our families today…not even close! It’s still VERY important. What has changed is that most often people took the time to do it right. Now, it seems like no one cares if people look at them or how they are sitting or standing. A quick blurry snapshot seems sufficient for many people. Because of price, perhaps, a photograph wasn’t just something that was randomly done here and there “back when”. It may also be the one thing you have to remember your family by.

There are so many things added together that makes this an enjoyable, although TEDIOUS, job. Bring it on people! I will carefully restore your fun memories captured by someone…a long time ago.


A few weeks ago we had such amazing fall weather. My sister-in-law and her family invited me to come to their house to do family pictures. We went out in their beautiful burr oak woods…picked some flowers…climbed their tree fort…and ended up on the basketball court…um ripstick court…no…skateboard…you get the picture!

Standing still was not an option, but I still think we got some fun stuff! Thanks for letting me follow you with my camera! Enjoy!
