Words to live by...

From the fullness of His grace we have received one blessing after

Remember who you are and you will walk through life blessed and beautiful

When you reach the heart of life you shall find beauty in all things

Children are a gift from God

Never underestimate the power of prayer

Polanic {senior session}

Recently I had the opportunity to meet up with this *very* photogenic senior. We enjoyed some wonderful lighting that evening. She is a natural in front of the camera and so laid back. I am going to have a hard time narrowing down her proofs. Seniors are so much fun to work with! Thanks for your patience as I compose your gallery.

Lecours {sibling session}

Three posts in one day.....shocking, I know!!! Trying to get caught back up with my sneak peeks after a busy summer of just plain, well, enjoying the summer (and a few vacations.....that's a whole other post). This is a *new* family that came to me last week as well. They are *new* in the sense that they've not been in front of my lens before, but I see their mom when we visit the pediatrician's office. It was great to meet her kiddos. Baby brother was quite the sport, considering he just got shots! Big brother was quite the ham as well once he got his turn in front of my camera. Enjoy a few from their recent session:

Oslund {6 week session}

I'm honored to photograph a lot of new clients lately. This little guy was one of them. He is such a little man! He also was a sleep fighter............though, he eventually gave in :) It was super convenient to catch some of those sleepy moments as he lives across the street! Here are just a few from his first time in front of my lens:

Winkle {newborn session}

I met with this lovely family last week to capture the newest member of their family. She tried her hardest to keep her eyes open, but finally gave in and we got some *sweet* images! I've photographed her siblings before and was honored to capture some of her newborn moments. Can you believe this little sprout is 3 weeks old??? What a peanut! Here are a few of my favorites from our session:

If you give a mom a muffin

balancing act


I (finally) caught the boys on film (er, compact flashcard) putting the new easel to use. I've left this beast out in the living room lately in an attempt to spark the kids' inner artists :) Here's what we did:

1. bought a pack of sponges at meijer ($0.99 on sale)

2. cut up said sponges into several random shapes of varying sizes

3. poured washable tempera paint onto cheap jelly roll pans with sponges

4. let the artists create!
5. clean-up was super easy :) we will definitely be doing this project again!
