"The virtue of a camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking."

I had such a great time with this family! Going to a new location is always an exciting challenge, and when this Mom asked if I would go to their home for their session it was no exception! I loved the open views of the trees and fields nearby, and the old wooden barn was a great backdrop, too. Add in a fun family and you can't do much better than that!

TWO cute!

I can't get over how cute this little guy looked in his shirt and tie outfit! We got some adorable images for his second birthday session! I love that image of him with the serious expression with the balloons all around, he looks like he could be in an advertisement!

Due in December

This session was actually done back in May, but I had to wait to post the images until the new grandparents had been told the big news and it then became "Facebook official". This session was done during the crazy heat wave we had this spring, so even though we were going for a sunny, springtime look, it was about 90 degrees and humid! They handled it like champs, though, and you could never guess how miserable it felt outside by looking at them! I was so happy with how the images from this session came out!

Sibling Fun

I've photographed these cute siblings a few times and I'm always thrilled with the results from their sessions. This time was no exception! We had great temps and perfect lighting, too! I love going to new locations and trying something different, especially when it works out this well!

Cupcake Cutie

This little girl is OBSESSED with cupcakes! So, it made perfect sense to incorporate them into her session! We started off with some photos at a local park, and she wore her favorite sundress for those. The best part, though, was the cupcake at the end! She wore her cupcake birthday shirt, got out a gourmet cupcake with peanut butter icing, and went to town! We got some fabulous images, I love that one where she is holding the cupcake out in front of her face and smiling, her family all said that it captured her personality perfectly :-)

Family Homestead

I had a fabulous time with this family's photo session! They invited me out to the family farm, which was a pretty special thing, since 6 generations of their family have lived there! There were fabulous photo spots all around the farm with all the buildings, trees, grass, and the farmhouse itself. We got some really cute stuff, but these are definitely my favorites from the day:

Sweet Baby Girl

I couldn't believe how awake this little sweetheart was during her session, even though she was only a few days old! But, that's ok, it meant that I was able to capture her beautiful blue eyes in some of her images! She settled down toward the end of the session, though, and we were able to get her set up in the doll bed, which turned out to be completely adorable... isn't she precious?
