the ohmans

this impromptu black & white of the ohmans is my all-time favorite family photo. not only does it epitomize this super cool family, but it captures of all of my favorite subjects: happy parents, beautiful children & sweet dogs! thanks so much corey, becca, grady & peter! hanging out in your backyard around the campfire made me feel like i was in time i'll bring the s'mores and stay awhile! :)

sam & wyatt

i traded lucy & ruthie for sam & wyatt for an afternoon.
oh what a difference a boy makes! these two are an
absolute riot. we laughed the entire time. i'd been scouting
out the perfect location for this shoot for awhile, & i love the
way the vibrant, rustic colors turned out. sam & wyatt had
a great time hamming it up for the camera, but they also
settled into some perfect poses when i asked them to.
easiest shoot ever! thanks, i love you guys!

the whites

yes, these cuties are as sweet as they look! don't their little eyes
just sparkle? it was such fun to witness the joy this family
finds in each other. thanks, mandy & kevin! i had a lovely
time with the five of you!

the glisson family

the glisson family is proof that happy people make happy homes.
all four of them are welcoming, sweet, playful and, OH yes,
beautiful! they have such a blast together - whether frolicking
in their gorgeous home or splashing by their backyard creek.
their contagious positive energy made this photo shoot a breeze!

the gehrkis

i had such a pleasant morning downtown
with the gehrki family. little madeline
is an "old soul" - she is just
such a cool kid. that's why i love the pictures
of her stare on the bench below. i also love
to see the joy she brings her mom & dad -
their smiles say it all...

adam & grace ann

check out these darling kiddos! adam is such a fun
big brother - he can really make grace ann laugh!
AND he was more than willing to share his hot cocoa
with her to keep her happy for a very COLD shoot.
aren't they just gorgeous? thanks for sharing them, virginia!
