Luke

I first met Amanda + Jeff 2 weeks ago. They are WONDERFUL! They came to the shoot with their ADORABLE little guy, Luke (6 mo.), + a bunny. Yes, they came with a REAL bunny! How FUN! But, the weather was not cooperating with us that day, + the place we were at was locked up so there was no shelter inside. So... we decided to try for another day.

Last week, I met up with Amanda, Jeff, + little Luke once again, only this time without bunny (maybe next time!). As soon as we started shooting, the rain came, so we huddled under a near by tree + kept shooting. But soon, the rain cleared + it was once again beautiful out.

And this DELIGHTFUL little Luke, who is NEVER fussy, was just not happy. Maybe it was his teeth coming in. Whatever the reason, we tried + tried to keep little, ADORABLE Luke content + tried our best to get a smile out of him. Looks like we succeeded! I have a TON of photos of Luke laughing / smiling. Here are just a few of their photos...

Then it came time for some photos of Jeff + Amanda together. Jeff spotted these amazing flowers, so we thought we'd take a few photos over by them. Then Jeff took one of the flowers + placed it in Amanda's hair. She thought it was so silly, but I assured her that it actually looked rather sweet, so we kept it in for a shot or two, which made her laugh, of course!



VERY sweet...


THANK YOU Amanda, Jeff + little Luke for a great shoot! You are such a FUN family! I am VERY EXCITED to get to photograph Luke's 1 year birthday party in September!

Getting Ready for Prom

This past Saturday was the Prom for Pine Crest High School. I was invited over to Caitlyn's home to take some photos of her + her girlfriends getting ready for the big night. This was my first time meeting the girls, + as much as I love my 4 boys, it was sure fun photographing a house full of girls being silly + VERY girlie! I have a ton of shots, but here are just a few of my favorites...












While I was there, I saw a lot of AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL food being prepared for the girls + their dates. As I walked around Caitlyn's property, I spotted some ULTRA FABULOUS cars. We moved a few of the cars out of the barn for some photos. I LOVE this first one of Caitlyn in the mirror...




I love these shots of the girls in the car... So fun!






So cute...

It was getting a little (lot) hot outside, so I had the guys come in + play some pool for their photos... (here are just a few)...




Hope you had a WONDERFUL time at Prom!

Mike + Shawna. PART FOUR. the couple

This is my 4th blog post of Mike + Shawna's wedding last weekend. It was WONDERFUL! You have seen photos of the girls getting ready, Mike + the men, and Shawna + the ladies. Now, here are a few of the photos of Mike + Shawna together...

Shawna had seen a photo I took of a wedding last year where we placed the rings on the words 'love' in the Bible, + she had asked me to take a similar photo with her rings. I love it.








The receiving line...

Mike has one of those AMAZING personalities! When he talks to you, he has a way of making you feel as though you are the most important person at that moment. He is WONDERFUL to be around + people are sure drawn to him! Here are just a few of the images that show some of his FANTASTIC personality...
