When Liz said she wanted to get new photos of her family, I was honored when she asked me to do it! I know Liz from work at the school district; she is amazing! She helps coordinate one of the school's Oasis program (among many other things) and she is always so kind and helpful and a wonder to spend time with. So when she came to me for pictures, I was so excited to work with her as a photographer and meet her family. We met her husband, Jay, and children Jillian and Lucas.
For the fourth year in a row we've had the pleasure of photographing Melissa and Spencer's growing family. This year was amazing! Their son Hudson is now in kindergarten (I can't believe it!) and Adalynd was running around and being as adorable as can be. I can't believe how quickly they are growing up. They even brought along a few additional family members to join in and help keep Hudson and Adalynd occupied as needed. We hadn't seen Melissa's dad and Spencer's mom since th
For the last two years (in 2016 and 2017), we have been honored to spend the day with Melissa, Spencer and Hudson. This year, we got to spend time with them again and got to meet the newest member of their family, Adalynd, who was just about to be born the last time we saw them! It was great catching up with them and seeing how much Hudson has changed. (He even claims to remember me! How neat is that?!) It has been a pleasure getting to see the Whitehead family grow! And baby
It was so exciting to see Melissa again at the Fort Howell craft fair in November! We photographed Spencer, Melissa and Hudson for the first time last year and was happy we could do pictures with her family on another day later in the fall. There were two big changes between our mini session with them last year and our session this year. First, I was excited to find out that Melissa is pregnant! She's having a little girl who is due in January, which is so exciting! She said
These sweet sisters are Jackie and Carly. Carly enjoyed being at the park, but not was not so thrilled whenever I tried to get a picture of her. But Jackie was so helpful. She did everything she could to get to get Carly to smile and have fun. Jackie was so nice, and was determine to help us get a good picture of her sister, but was excited when it was time to take a few pictures of just her. They were so much fun and so sweet. They are perfect sisters! I love both of these p
So, best friend sessions are totally my favorite! Last fall I had the opportunity to photograph Sydney and Ally. They are such great ladies and wonderful friends. It's so exciting learning about their friendship, and even more fun getting to see it play out during our session! Meet Sydney and Ally! The token black and white profile shot. With pretty park and water in front of them. Two beautiful girls in a beautiful park! Look at these smiles! I just love this picture of Sydn
Spencer, Melissa and their two-year old son Hudson are just adorable! They joined us in the fall and brought a few extra family members with them! Hudson was a little upset when him and dad arrived. He was pretty against something ... maybe me, or the camera or maybe just his mom not being there yet. But soon enough he opened up and, man, is he the cutest! Take a look! This is definitely my favorite picture from their session ... and possibly one of my favorites ever. Hudson
This fall we offered mini sessions on a beautiful fall day in Kirkwood Park. This sweet family came out and started off our day. Stephanie, Don, Veronica and Fletcher needed updated family pictures, and I was super excited to work with them! The Zieman's enjoy traveling and hiking. Veronica was in the process of the dreaded college search. Fletcher is a hockey player and definitely the jokster of the family. Meet the Ziemans! The awesome Zieman family — Don, Veronica, Fletche
