Happy Friday! My hope…

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend!  For me, we plan on relaxing after all the craziness of getting our 3 boys back to school this week.  Somehow it always seems so hectic and stressful!

I had to make a quick post though to let Mark know that I was working away on his wonderful family reunion photo session and just melted when I came upon these cuties.  I can only hope that Seth and I are this cute and sweet when we get their age!  Don’t you just adore his hat?!?!  I am a sucker for hats!


Caligirl steals the show ~Family photos with a cute dog!


I’m telling you this has been the year of the dog for us this fall!  So many wonderful families have chosen to include their dogs (or dogs) in their family photos and we just LOVE IT!  Yes, you heard me right….we love having your dog in the photos too!  Seriously – how cute is this little baby named caligirl!!!!  Oh and the family is really cute too 🙂

Such fun and exciting times to be a senior in high school – getting ready to set out on so many new and exciting adventures.  Good luck Lindsey!  It was wonderful working with you and I know you will go off to do many wonderful things in the coming years!



I love family photo sessions ~Ballantyne area family photographer~

Especially when there is a baby involved! I loved meeting this wonderful and fun family! I was so happy that we were able to meet up when all the extended family was in town to welcome the new little man!

This is my go to gal! She NEVER lets me down and I am so thankful to have her in my life! XOXO You are beautiful Jessie!

Pretty in pink

I’ve always wanted to try to do a session in the peach orchards when the trees bloom but I tell you it’s a bit tricky! The trees only bloom for a very short period of time and our light can be a bit on the tricky side depending on the time of day but we lucked out with some beautiful weather this past weekend.


Family love –

I thought I’d post some examples of an exteded family session I did with Chaeli and her wonderful family when they came to town for a visit. The weather could not have been more uncooperative but darn it they were troopers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love large family and group photography sessions!
