Sheri & George

My friends are moving to Germany!! They wanted to have family photos done before they left ~ a way to remember their home and their life here. It was a fun afternoon with George & Sheri & the “kids:” Hanson, Mollie, and Merlin. We had fun, laughs, snuggles, and puppy kisses.

Letting personalities shine ~ even the fur babies ~ is so much a part of what I do. Can you feel the love between them? They are best friends, partners in crime (not really), and terrific people. I’m gonna miss them in our neighborhood.

Capturing those special places and times in your life is what makes my heart sing!! What are YOU waiting for? It doesn’t have to be a big event or special occasion ~ because really every day is special.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session… use the arrows to move through the filmstrip.

Now booking Summer Sessions! So may fun things ~ let’s fly a kite, eat ice cream cones, run through the sprinklers, go to the beach, blow bubbles, eat berries & watermelon, draw with chalk, have a picnic… the possibilities are endless. What are you doing this summer? Invite me along to capture the memories!

Mustard Field Adventure | a personal lifestyle photo session

Sometimes you just need to take time to get outdoors and wander in nature. That’s what we did here in the local mustard fields. The rain upon rain we had earlier helped created these beautiful fields of wild mustard. This doesn’t happen all the time, and it is such a fun place when it does.

It was so much fun to spend time with these two! It was a beautiful afternoon and there were new smells everywhere! And a yellow lab’s gotta sniff, you know! But she was a really good girl. She almost disappeared in the mustard, but came running when called. Being outdoors with your human in a new place is a great day for a dog! It was a great day all around for us people too. Walking on the paths there were times we were surrounded by the mustard ~ it was taller than us!

Did you know personal and family photo sessions don’t need to be the just “stand there, look at the camera, smile.” kinda boring experience? It can be so much more! Expressing your personality, your family’s fun things to do, capturing your joy ~ that’s what makes my heart sing. Taken at your home or at a favorite place. Just you doing the things you love. I’d love to capture those beautiful, everyday moments. The ones you love and want to remember.

Feet...

I’ve been thinking of feet ~ my feet specifically & feet in general. After my second foot injury, well, feet are naturally on my mind. This time I was in a boot and/or on a knee scooter for over four months. Which made life challenging and had a big impact on photography & my business. But I’m healed and back and ready to go!! And so thankful for that. My feet have taken me through this life and have (mostly) gotten me where I need to go. And I’ll bet yours have too. And we rarely think about them. Feet are just overlooked. But…

Is there anything cuter than babies feet? Chubby little nuggets of goodness! Or toddler feet when they are just learning to walk & always seem to want to be in your shoes? Or little kid feet when they are running all over the place? Then there are marching band feet ~ all going the same place at the same time, hopefully in step! Family feet ~ oh how they change over the years. Praying feet walking a labyrinth. Sports feet ~ teaching our kids & teens life lessons. Beach feet. Hard-working feet. Resting feet. And don’t even get me started on puppy feet! And those things we put on our feet…

I don’t have a foot fetish (really!). I am simply grateful for these hard working body parts that are often ignored. The details of our lives make up the whole. I think photos of those details (and that includes feet!) can give a glimpse into our lives, just as they are right now.. What do you say?

I say “Hurray!” for feet! And we can include some “footage” during your session! Check out the gallery below & let me know your thoughts.
