Golden sunshine blessed us with great light on the afternoon of this dear couple’s anniversary photo session! These are just a handful of the captures for their anniversary book. I can’t wait to see which one they chose for their canvas wall art! I couldn’t have asked for more natural subjects! They are a great example of love and commitment for all who know them and witness their kindness and service to others.

We made a wish, and you came true.
Once you’re parents, your marriage matters more, not less, because someone special is counting on you.
“Babies are such a nice way to start people.”
― Don Herold
I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day. When it’s cold outside, I’ve got the month of May. Well, I guess you’ll say what can make me feel this way? My girl!
First we had each other. Then we had you. Now we have everything!

It was a great day at the park with this family of three, and the bonus was that the rain held off until we were done capturing many special moments.
Seven months old is a magical age! Baby P was fascinated with the ducks and people paddling on the pond. She challenged us to keep her on her special quilt made by her grandma.
Love the love that was bubbling over during this session!

Baby Sprout was welcomed into the world a few days after this photo session! Congratulations, new little family, on your beautiful addition — you’ve grown by two feet!

A fun family + a beautiful day + a country setting = a GREAT time “shooting” this family!
These parents and their teens were a joy to capture and though we had just met, they were naturals and we had fun together. I loved how they coordinated their colors to brighten the country landscape and the rustic settings.
The H Family chose to have their photos taken near a very special, old tree in their neighborhood complete with the wooden wagon and the biggest rope and wooden swing I’ve ever seen. Can you imagine how high that swing might go?
When they asked if I’d shoot them as they held their guns, I knew I’d be safe with them!
This fun-loving couple celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in September … this would make a great celebration spot with wine, cheese and crackers, and moonlight!
Aren’t they the cutest? I love their bright blue eyes and happy smiles!
The country setting and great light made me grateful for this beautiful afternoon shoot … I’m glad they left this old stump in the yard!
We ended their family “shoot” by including their beautiful Labs — these guys are all brothers and couldn’t have been sweeter to pose for this shot. I hope they got some good treats! This would make one great canvas wall art for their home. What a pleasure it was to meet this family and capture some special moments for their memory albums and wall frames. One may even become their Christmas photo for 2014!
Thank you to the H Family for purchasing my photography gift certificate at the Silent Auction, and for supporting our Heart for Honduras mission trip! I was blessed in many ways, especially by going as part of the mission team and by meeting and photographing your dear family.

She isn’t your typical “water dog” but does she ever have fun jumping off the kayak’s bow into the lake, and then shaking all over one of us!
There must be a tiny Labrador gene in her somewhere!
When we rescued her, little did we know we’d have an avid kayaker joining our family.

The last trimester — the nesting time — has begun, and both pink and blue and neutral colors were included in some special photos in a favorite park, documenting this couple’s waiting for baby who is due in early November.
He’s so happy! She’s very radiant! We were all very wet in the rain, but glad we met and captured these special photos.
And one more, SOOC — they don’t need anything to enhance their cuteness.
