Shelby and Kevin brought their favorite pups along for the first part of their session. Things got a little rowdy so they called on a family member to come entertain for a bit while we finished up their session. We spent time overlooking the river in Hutchinson where they had their first date. It's so sweet when couples include something sentimental during their engagement session. I had a blast working with these two for their winter engagement session.
Megan and Jason LOVE winter and snowboarding so we we had to include this activity as part of their engagement session. We met at Elm Creek Park on a very chilly day but they rocked it. I just love hearing sweet stories about couples during their engagement sessions and seeing them in action. I am thrilled to work with this couple for their engagement session and 2019 wedding.
Heather and her three favorites came into the studio for a family mini session right before the holidays. We used the studio first as it was a VERY chilly morning! Her and her family are big into hockey so it only felt natural ending up on a local Buffalo ice rink! I can't wait to share a few previews of this sweet family of four!
Happy 2019 to you and yours!
Meet sweet Charles - thee Christmas baby! I was able to document his fresh 48 at the Maple Grove hospital and watch his parents ooh and awe over his every move. They gushed over his sweet cries and new baby reflexes, and Mama called him Charles in Charge which I think it fits perfectly! Babies are such a gift, and he's certainly made this season the merriest! Congratulations to this party of three!
Ferg. What can I say about this poodle with a 'tude!??! I can't get enough of his style and sass and feel so honored that I've been able to photograph this family for the past 4 years! Thank you, Laura, for keeping me entertained with his fashions and comic relief!!
What a sweet family of three!!! We spent the night at a local park and captured all the silly and sweet embraces Mr. W shared with his mama and daddy. The family has decided to find out what gender the baby is upon delivery and I am SO excited to hear! Congrats to all of you!
OMG. These brothers were good for the soul! I can't get over how much big brother snuggles and kisses his sweet baby!! Congratulations!!!
Miss Molly - what a dollie! She's such a sweet girl and her big brother was not camera shy either!!! Congrats on becoming a sweet family of 4!
I have a funny story! I shot this family for the first time last year and when the gallery went live, I heard crickets. I was so nervous as I spend a bunch of time and put love into editing each session that when I hear nothing, it can get the best of me. When Mama booked me again this year, I was thrilled but nervous as her gallery from 2017 was still sitting there untouched. Turns out, she is like me and EVERY OTHER mama out there... plain old BUSY. We had a good laugh and then I found out she had another baby. :) She was BUSY.
Here they are again, with their ADORABLE tribe! I think this might be one of the happiest families around. What do you think?
I am always so appreciative and grateful for clients that I see every year and The Cruz family is one of them! They're a perfect little trio of giggles and snuggles! Enjoy a few highlights from their 2018 family photos!
Ellen + Michael and their pup Nino make the cutest trio, am I right!?!?!
I met all three of them at Montissippi Regional Park in Monticello for their sunset engagement session and captured everything funny, sweet and adorable about them! It was such a beautiful sight to watch them interact and I can see why they've fallen head over heels for each other. The are both so kind, funny and very compatible!
I'm thrilled to share these highlights and can't wait to document their 2019 wedding!
