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Welcome back to my super outdated blog!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!

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!

The Mansoori Girls are Growing!

Last month I had a wonderful time catching up with the Mansoori family and seeing how their girls have grown since our last photo shoot.  Lily continues to be a wonderful big sister to Layla, who has grown quite a bit since her newborn photos!  It was really fun to photograph them in their element at home.  For some of the photos, the girls wore their Persian dress up clothes, an adorable piece of their heritage that I really enjoyed documenting for them.  I hope you enjoy these photos!
