Reynolds Family

This mini session was scheduled fairly last minute, and I am SO glad it worked out!  It was a beautiful, warm day which was such a blessing!  I couldn't stop laughing while editing these photos because of the crazy range of expressions I captured of Eli.  However, despite how cute he was in the picture I captured of him sneezing, that one didn't make the cut.  😂  There were a couple pictures that did make the cut even though Eli had his tongue out.  You can see one of them towards the end.  He and Isaac are just too cute!  😊

Starry Family

These boys were a hoot on this chilly morning for their mini session!  They were promised hot chocolate for cooperating and they definitely earned it!  😁  I was surprised that Logan and Landon look more alike now than they used to.  Since they are all growing up so much, I wasn't sure they would all still fit on this bench, but I'm so glad I asked them to at least try.  I seriously melted a little bit when Zach put his arms around his brothers!  😍

I have felt so blessed by this mild weather which has made it so much easier to do these Holiday mini sessions outside.  I initially wasn't sure if I could or should offer anything this year, but I'm glad that I did!  It's been such a joy to still be able to capture these precious moments despite this ridiculous year.  💗

Wappes Family

It was a chilly morning, but we had a fun, mini session!  I can still hardly believe that when I first met Charlie earlier this year, he was just a little babe and now he's so quickly grown up into "Mr. Independent" who is always on the move!  He is such a sweetheart!  Belle also was able to join us for a few pictures which was fun as well.  We wrapped up this quick session right as the sun was finally above the buildings.  😊

Walter Family

I had so much fun with the Walters!  It was a wee bit cold, but it really wasn't too bad and warmed up a bit before we were done.  Tim wasn't too happy about the chilly air or about me taking his picture, but after getting to play in the leaves with his grandpa, he was fine.  😊  Carissa was all smiles and clearly having a blast!  I can't believe how big she is now!  She was only a tiny newborn last time I saw her.  😭  It's been such a joy for me to watch this awesome family grow over the years!  💗

afO's A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas

It was so nice to photograph a play again!  It felt like it had been years, which isn't even remotely true.  It just seems that way because this year has felt like 3 years crammed into one and it still feels like we are so far from the end of it, but it will finally be 2021 before we know it.  😊  Anyways, I enjoyed seeing this show for a second time (the first time was in 2015).  It's such a sweet story and it's a fairly short production with no intermission.  Here are some of my favorite pictures!

afO's A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas Cast

This show felt so different from the last time afO did it because the location was completely different (and not that ideal, but they made it work).  I'm so glad that despite the craziness of 2020, they are able to do this!  I hope you'll see the show!  They only have 3 performances.  One tomorrow night and two on Saturday.  You can get your tickets by going to:

Tim and Kristin

I was thrilled when these two were able to fit in some family pictures into their crazy, constantly changing schedules.  They haven't had professional pictures taken of the two of them since they got married which was over 13 years ago.  😮  I can give them some grief for this since this is my brother and sister-in-law.  😁  Anyways, we had a lovely time and beautiful weather!  💓

How cute are these two??!  They don't really get along, so this composite shot is be best I could do to get them in one picture.  😂  But seriously, they are both so adorable!  Quinn is on the left and Patches is on the right.  💗
