Tia is a hair and makeup artist that works with me a lot. They had never had family portraits done, and decided with Gage being almost one, that it was time. Evidently the trick to working with a one year old, who isn’t sure he wants to play, is to let him photobomb! And since I couldn’t help myself, I included a sweet, sweet shot of just Gage and sister Hunter! Both shots just make me smile!!!
We had so much fun, even the cows wanted to be in the photo!
Why settle for normal when you can have fun? The Clanton family was sssoooo much fun during their complimentary family portrait session!
I love photographing this family. Our photo shoots are always fun and incredibly laid back. I love even more that I have the honor of telling the story of their lives!
This darling little diva was a pleasure to photograph, just to see what she would do next. I didn’t get a lot of the traditional gummy grin pictures, but the variety of her expressions is just adorable.
This is Aiden at 9 months at his grampa’s house! We played in the leaves (even tasted a few) and played with mom. Then grampa got his restoration project out of the garage for some very cool sittin on the engine photos. Someday maybe he will get to drive grampa’s special car! And finally, because his outfit was just too cute, a holiday themed set with a sleigh and a furry friend! Enjoy the gummy grins and beauty that is a nine month old!
The fun thing about photographing families in the midwest is that you get to use really really BIG tractors as props! It was a hot, hot afternoon, but the sky was gorgeous blue and the tractor was clean and ready to go! Creating really fun, unique family portraits is something that I really love doing and I think these are some of my best!
I love photographing 6 month old babies; they sit up and have lots of expression and are just too cute for words. Hadley with her beautiful big eyes was no exception! She brought her mom and dad along, so we got some beautiful family photos and a couple of extras with dad. Since mom is gorgeous and all done up with her hair and makeup, we did some contemporary portraits of her as well! Such a fun family to work with! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems!
Here are just a few photos from Aiden’s 4 month pictures. We got to go outside and play!
In a contemporary portrait, is it enough to just portray a beautiful woman? Or should the portrait convey who she is besides beautiful? This image of Kirsten was part of a concept shoot to illustrate who she is. Personally I think we nailed it. I would love to hear opinions from others who know her. If we were to photograph you, who would you be?
This mom went a step beyond what we have done thus far in that she wanted pictures with her daughter, but also her son.(much to his dismay) Boys and later Men, as a rule aren’t much into pictures, but I think this time we pulled it off. We got some abosolutely gorgeous shots of Tiffany, and then daughter Grace and son Landen. Then we put them all together and had a little fun! I hope she enjoys these images as much as I loved taking them! Hair and makeup by Stefani Smith.
This is beautiful little Ava, youngest of three darling little girls! She wasn’t really sure she wanted to do this whole “get photos taken this morning”. The weather was less than co-operative, but we snuck a few outdoors anyway. In the end she was great, and nothing in this world beats a cheezy 15 month old grin!
Sounds like a gang in the old westerns doesn’t it! In this case though, The Murray 5 are the Murray grandchildren. They range in age from 6 to 2 weeks. It was wild, crazy, stressful….and wonderful! Their expressions and attitudes are open, natural and so unique to each child.
It doesn’t seem like a year ago that we were photographing Mimi as a newborn, but it has indeed. Now she is no longer baby, she is moving into the great realm of toddler and all of the joys and gray hair that come with it! Happy Birthday baby girl!!!

Jackson is one of those fun ” birthday at Christmas” babies, so we took the liberty of photographing his birthday a little early this year! One year olds are always a great unknown when it comes to a photoshoot…Will they fuss? Will they cry? Will they heave cupcake across the room? Thankfully, Jack is a laid back kind of baby who was quite happy to play with the cars and rocking horse. It was a toss up over eating the cupcake or the candle, but ultimately the cupcake won out!
One is such a fun age to photograph, and Teagan was such a hoot! The weather didn’t co-operate, but we had lots of fun in the studio instead. Mom brought lots of her favorite things, among them her wagon and a giant zebra. Mom also brought cake, and as you will see, Teagan was into cake.( although she did share with mom!)

Its so, so much fun to photograph children, especially when you have been doing so since they were born! This is Leah on the occasion of her Fourth Birthday! She is so bright and active, she reminds me of a butterfly, flitting from person to person and place to place! I just love the juxtaposition of the pink dress and the bare feet, especially as she swings her bat at the pinata! Happy Birthday Leah! May your wishes come true!
Ava’s 6 month portraits were such a hoot! Her mom chose to have me shoot at their house as opposed to the studio, that way big sisters could go do their own thing while littlest sister was being photographed! But, in the way of big sisters, they chose to stay close and “help!” Fortunately, Ava thinks her big sisters are the best and very, very funny too!
