Thank You!

Thank you so much to all of my 2023 clients!  It's been such a fun year!  I truly hope that my photographs can be a blessing to you and your families for generations to come.  💗

Joe and I always test out the sets I do for the Holiday Mini Sessions.  We kept trading who had which cat because the cats would be perfect for me, but Joe couldn't get them to hold still or look anything but super annoyed.  Which picture is your favorite??  I can't decide between #2 or #4.  Also, I'd like to point out that Joe had two hands to use for cat wrangling and I only had one as I used my cell phone as the camera remote, but I still managed to get each cat to look at the camera.  Haha!!  I then proceeded to try to get a cute one of just Kira and Arien but they were refusing to sit together.  I finally managed to get a picture of them together and called it good enough.  They were so annoyed with us by the time we were done.  😂

afO's Longing for the Light

I thoroughly enjoyed afO's Longing for the Light!  This was such a unique, special show that really was so perfect for getting into the spirit of Christmas.  I loved the variety of individual skits while also having some that were a continuing story that was just broken up into smaller chunks.  I've seen these 6 actors in other things and they are truly just so talented!  I didn't realize how good they are at singing too!  I had actually already seen the skit that Dennis and Lauren did, but it was many years ago.  I remembered it quite well though and couldn't stop laughing!  That one was probably the highlight for me, but the whole thing was so good!

afO's Longing for the Light Cast

afO did a special Christmas production called Longing for the Light.  This was a collection of skits, songs, and more.  I really enjoyed it!  It was also fairly convenient that it was being done at my church so I knew the space well.  Anyways, your last chance to see this is tonight.  Don't miss out!  You can find more info or purchase tickets at:

Hill Family

 I'm happy to bless families by capturing their extended families for holiday get togethers.  I find it interested to hear about the traditions other families have and to see how different people celebrate.  I especially love capturing generational photos.  The Hills had 4 generations represented with those ladies which is so neat!  I've known Gary and Jan for a long time and they are such dear people to me, so it was fun to meet the rest of their family.  💗

Beau Jason

Beau's family contacted me a couple months before his due date about getting newborn and family pictures done.  At the time, I knew I could easily fit his session into my schedule.  But with the gorgeous fall weather we have had this year, I had lots of last minute additions to my schedule.  I still wasn't too worried as his due date was right after the newly added sessions were to happen.  Little Beau came a wee bit early though which made for an even busier week, but we were able to get him in the studio right before Thanksgiving.  He was absolutely a dream to work with!  He did fill his diaper shortly before I was moving onto the family pictures, but I was able to keep him snuggly asleep, and we pushed on through the smell.  😅  His sister, Emma, was so smart, sweet, and well-behaved.  I questioned her parents on if they put her through some sort of class on professional modeling because she did everything so naturally and perfectly.  They assured me they had not, but I still don't know if I believe them.  Haha!!  Emma was obsessed with Beau which also made working with them together very easy.  The whole family was so nice and a joy to have in my studio!  💙
