Jessica F Senior Portraits--Oct 2008

Last Friday I had the pleasure of taking Senior Portraits for Jessica F. She is one year older than Tyler, and goes to the same high school. She grew up in the same church, as well. I can't believe she's a Senior already! We drove about 35 miles east of here to a Garden area. It was a pretty area, but it was chilly and rained for a bit of the time that we were there. Then the rain blew away for a bit and we were able to get the shots we wanted! (Thanks, God!) Here are a few of the portraits...

They had several neat bridges at the Garden. I love the way this bridge arches up in the middle. Love the grin and the bare feet!
Jessica has such pretty and thick blonde hair, and gorgeous blue eyes!
A fun shot...

and in color...
Love her hair flying out on this one!
Near the water's edge...

Another shot near the water. On another of the bridges...

and in color...
Lots of neat wooden furniture...
Another fun pic...
Aren't those bubbles something??
Thanks for allowing me to take your Senior portraits. Can't wait to hear what you think!

"K" Family Photo Shoot

Last Sunday afternoon, I had the privilege of photographing the K family. The mommy, Christy, is my buddy whom I have Girls Night Out with, and with whom I go to the annual craft show on Labor Day weekend. I've known her family for ages, and it's so neat to look back over the photo shoots I've done for them and see how the kids have grown. Here's the whole group...
I really like the placement on this photo...
This is the same photo, but I applied some special editing to it. What do you think? I kind of like it. It make the people stand out, but you can still see the neat natural background.
Here's their youngest son, Noah. He's a cute young man!
and their big guy, Josh. He's a Sophomore in high school this year. Wow!
The whole gang again. I really like this one.
Miss Caitie and her beautiful eyes...
Tower of "K" kids...
Another whole gang shot...
Josh and his pretty eyes...
Here's Noah, looking like he never ever gets into trouble!
Miss Caitie with some orneriness in her eyes!
They fill a whole step!
We were laughing that this pose reminded us of the Brady Bunch!
Peek-a-boo with Miss Caitie.
Relaxin' with Noah...
and Josh looks pretty cool...
The gang walking down the sidewalk toward the art museum...

These are but a few of the photos on your CD. I'm excited for you to see the rest of them, Scott and Christy!

"R" Family Photo Shoot

On a sunny, but cool, morning last Saturday I had the privilege of photographing the "R" Family! They have two cute little girls, & we had lots of fun capturing some of their family time.

We met at a Children's Fountain just north of downtown. Very pretty! Here's the group in front of the fountain. l to r: Bethany, Matthew, Leta, and Maggie...
Love this picture of the girls' profiles in front of the rose garden...
Cute and on the go...Miss Maggie was fun to photograph...
Little monkey...
Isn't she a cutie-bug??
And here's her beautiful big sister. Bethany has gotten to be such a young lady. She was one of my little babies/preschoolers at church.
The girls look more and more alike, though I think Bethany looks more like her mommy, while Maggie looks more like her daddy...
Bethany was full of ideas for poses. She's a very creative gal!
Playing peek-a-boo with Miss Maggie...
Another of the whole gang...
Little Miss Beauty Queen...
Giggly grin...

Daddy and his big girl...
The two sisters...
Leta and Matthew.... Why are they smiling? Scroll down and you'll see a picture of how it really is when you have kiddos and try to have some snuggle time...

Yes, the girls have to get in on all that huggin', too! So, so funny and realistic!
Thanks so much for sharing your family with my lens! I really enjoyed it...

"C" Family Photo Shoot

You may remember about a year ago when I did a photo shoot for some friends of ours who were expecting their first baby. Then, Baby Mattie was born less than a week later. It was such a fun photo shoot! Recently I had the opportunity to take a family picture with this sweet family of 3, including Baby Mattie who just turned one! So...here are a few of their photos that I really wanted to get posted tonight before I head to bed!

The whole gang, Angie, Mattie, and Adam...
Daddy enjoyin' his girl...
Love those precious little soft lips...
Click on this picture to see the pink bow and the baby's original eye color filled in.
Baby Mattie is so blessed to have parents who love her so much. Other than Christ, she is the center of their lives!
Pretty, pretty, princess...

This pose was one of my favorite. Do they look so happy and natural together??
Playing in the grass...
She's thinking about something! You can tell by the inquisitive look in her eyes! One of the same poses from above, but with a grin from Miss Mattie...
Going for a walk with Mommy...
"Oh, allright, you can kiss me, but make it quick! I'm on a mission!!"
I really like how they look in this picture, as well...
Restin' on Daddy's shoulder...
Daddy helps me to knock on the door...
"Hey, we're going on a walk. Ya wanna join us?"
Bye bye! I'm going to go play with my mommy and daddy!!

Thanks, Adam and Angie, for trusting me to get some good shots of your lovely family. You are a blessing to our family, and our kids just love you guys!
