What a sweet and special family I am posting about today.  Dan and Cerissa have always been an all boy family.  A Football, superhero pretending, mud adventuring, music playing, cap gun shooting boy family!  Four big strong boys in a row, then this year came little Lydia, affectionately known as Liddy.  Cerissa is one of my Sister-in-laws, and one of the best mothers I know.  I am so thrilled to now see her a mother of a sweet and delicately perfect baby girl, bring on the PINK!  I like to say I knew from the beginning this one was a girl, or at least had a very strong hunch!  I am so glad she is finally here. It is so fun to see how happy she makes her family.  They absolutly adore her and I am right there with them. She is just so precious. Enjoy a peek at this beautiful family and all the love they share.

    OMGoodness,

    Cerissa and Dan,

    I love these photos of your family and the spirit that you sense from the pictures. The kids are well-mannered and tight knit and all around good kids. I know they are taught by great parents.

    Lydia is precious precious precious. Those big brothers no doubt will be her armour.

    God has certainly blessed you both with each other and a awesome family.

    I need to ride along with Grandma and Grandpa next time they come to visit. At least I can feel apart of my beautiful niece’s journey of raising an awesome tribe ha! Even if it’s just for a weekend, I would enjoy that very much.

    Hugs xoxo

Ahh sweet sunshine and joyful children.  I love this family so much.  They are a true blessing to anyone who has the privilege of knowing them.  We were blessed with perfect clear skies, and warm October sun during this session. This is a long post because there were too many beautiful moments to choose from!  Enjoy a peek at the fun I had taking photos of this gorgeous family.  


Photo shoots and weddings have come and gone all year.  Even though I truly adore my job, I often feel like I’m rushing through the days with all the busyness. But just going for walk, talking life, and, wait for it… JUST TAKING PHOTOS  FOR THE HECK OF IT, was good for my soul today.  Thank you Mica for the lovely morning.  Let’s make this a habit.  I hope you all take time this weekend to slow down and be. Wherever you are, just be.

Ah sweet autumn sessions.  The colors are always so gorgeous!  We did get rained on and it was chilly, but I just love these photos of this sweet little family.  All the smiles and giggles and happiness.  How cute are they?!


What a special photo session this is for me to share.  Meet my awesome In-laws, and seriously, isn’t Susan the most beautiful lady!?  I remember when I first met them many years ago, when me and my now husband, Peter, weren’t even dating yet.  They are kind, warm, and authentic, the kind of people you feel lucky to call friends. Susan is an artist and Dana an Engineer, much like Peter and I.  We learn so much from their example.  And I am ever thankful they raised such a kind and respectful son for me to marry!  These photos are especially special because these are the first professional photos they have ever had taken.  I am so honored they asked me to capture these special moments for them.  37 years later and they are still so evidently in love.

Dana and Susan I am blessed to have you as my Father and Mother In-law. My life is richer because  you are in it.
