It’s hard to believe that summer is already half-way over, but autumn will be here before we know it!  This fall, I’m hoping to offer some special mini-sessions so that everyone has a chance to get their holiday card photos taken before it gets too cold (though cold weather is sometimes difficult to remember when we’re in the middle of July!).  Keep your eyes open for news about those sessions coming soon!

I had a great time getting to know this family at their mini-session, and it was clear that their family is overflowing with love.  They were just so kind with one another, even though they’re getting into the teenage years that (I’ve heard) can be a challenge… but not for this bunch!  They were easygoing, cheerful, and just had fun hanging out together. Thanks for a fun time!

I really love every family that I get to photograph, but sometimes there are families that become much more than clients I get to see once a year… families like this one, that become a part of my daily life through friendship!  It’s such a treat to get to know kids outside of our mini-sessions, because then when it is time to take pictures, I know the smiles and hugs and laughter I see are truly genuine — and we all have so much FUN!  Thanks for being awesome you guys!
