Children

The Franklin Family Has Grown!

Hey there, friends!

I’m alive!!  I thought it was time for me to take a break from educating the future of America (and traveling all summer) to update this blog and let you know that I’m still around and taking photos.  🙂

Though greatly delayed (I promise I’m more prompt when it comes to photo shoots with clients), here are highlights from my time with the Franklin family this year.  They’ve grown a bit since our last session together!

The Rest of 2016’s Photo Sessions

Hello, my friends!

I’m getting my photography act together and wanted to get my blog up-to-date so I can share more recent sessions next.  Here is proof that I did something other than travel photography in 2016.  🙂  I hope you enjoy these lovely families that I photographed this past fall!

A Look Back at 2016

There’s nothing like an icy day trapped at home to give me the time I’ve needed all year to catch up this blog!

With apologies for the slightly haphazard style of all of this, here is my attempt to catch up the blog so I can be more up-to-date on posting recent photo sessions, as well as recent travel (which is soon!).

I hope you enjoy the recap.  I hope to be back with more soon.

Merry Christmas to all!

Remember 2015?

Hey there, friends!

Welcome back to my super outdated blog! 🙂  As many of you know, 2015 was a tough year for me as I adjusted to my dad having passed away and continued to work and photograph on the side.  This blog took a backseat to other things. This post is my attempt to catch the blog up on the photography that I did that year so this blog can continue to showcase examples of my work.  Thanks for your patience as I get my act together.  Highlights from my cross-country road trip will be coming up soon!

Here are some of my favorite shots from last fall’s sessions.  I hope you enjoy the look back!

Addison is Four!

It’s been so fun to watch this little girl grow up!  I started photographing her when she was six months old and all of a sudden she is four and has two little siblings!  It was lovely spending some time with all three of these children a couple weeks ago.  I hope you enjoy these sweet photos of them!

Levi is a big brother!

Hello there!

As with every delayed blog post excuse I write, I’m a bit behind due to that whole full-time teacher thing I do.  Nonetheless, I had to share these photos even if they’re a couple months late.  When I was home in PA this summer, I had the chance to photograph my friends’ children one morning.  You may remember Levi from some of my blog posts over the last couple years.  It’s always so fun to look back and see how kids grow from year to year. 🙂  I’m so glad I was able to document this family again, and now with little sister Laurel to join the photos!  I hope you enjoy these!

Now there are seven!

I’ve had the privilege of photographing my high school friend’s growing family over the last few years.  Two years later, there’s an addition in these photos!  While I was home in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago, I had a fun visit out to the farm to do a quick photo shoot of this beautiful crew.  Photographing seven is good practice for me as I anticipate time with my sister’s family this fall!  I hope you enjoy these few highlights from my time with them!

Welcome, Little Samantha!

I’ve been photographing this family since their oldest daughter was six months old.  Now there are three of them!  It’s been a joy to watch them grow.  Here are newborn photos of their newest addition, Samantha.  I hope you enjoy the sweetness of these little ones and a few with their beautiful mama, too!  🙂

The Mansell Family

Hello!  At the beginning of June, I had a really fun time photographing my brother’s family as they anticipate the coming of a fifth child to their family.  I know I’m biased, but this is honestly one of the cutest families on the planet. 🙂  I hope you enjoy these photos from our time together!

Sneak Peek: Lots to Come!

Hi there!  It’s been a busy few months here.  I’ve just returned from a cross-country road trip from Indiana to Los Angeles and have lots to share from that adventure!  Here are some sneak peeks of sessions and travel posts I will be sharing soon.  Stay tuned!

Here is a recreation of a shot I took of three of my brother's children a few years ago.  More photos of my brother and sister-in-law's family coming soon!
