Probably my greatest joy in photography is taking photos of my family. Matt (my oldest brother) and his family live the closest to me and therefore I have the most opportunities to capture them. I could not keep the smile off of my face as I edited their family portraits this year. My sweet Ansley girl is growing up to be so beautiful, and my main monkey man – Andrew, gives the best impish faces I have ever seen and I laughed out loud more than once as I sorted through their images. I hope I continue to be able to take their photos every year as it brings me so much joy. I love you all so much!

I met Trista through Eric (a dear family friend). I liked her immediately. Her kindness and sweet disposition endear others to her and it is easy to see why Eric decided to date her and has continued to date her for the past couple of years. Trista, like Eric, is gifted academically. She could probably go to any college she wants to and I cannot wait to find out what college she chooses and if it will be the same one as Eric (what can I say, I’m nosy). I had so much fun running around with the two of them, snapping both individual seniors and shots of the two of them together. They make a cute couple and are a personal favorite of mine 🙂 It was pretty special.

Eric is a wonderful friend of the family. It was such a pleasure to go out with him and his lady to take both of their senior portraits (See Trista – Seniors). Eric and Trista have been dating a long time, so we added in some shots of them as a couple. Eric is smart as a whip and has been in IB and other advanced/gifted programs since he was in elementary school. His smarts have always amazed me and I am excited to see what college he chooses to continue his education at. Whatever he puts his mind to he will do well. Thanks for letting me drag you and Trista everywhere and capture your studly self on camera!

I love taking pictures of people that are very dear to me. This past weekend I had lots of opportunity to do so. One of these sessions was with the Borell Family. I have watched their beautiful daughters grow up over the years to be more and more beautiful. It was such a joy to take pictures of each of them and they were so easy! They all knew where to put their hands or feet with little to no direction! What was supposed to be a 30 minute session couldn’t help but turn into an hour session because it was too much fun to stop. Cannot wait to do this again!

Shawna Cox (the mom) is also a photographer, so this shoot made me really nervous. The family’s crazy good looks made them easy to take pictures of and everyone pitched in to make this a fast and smooth shoot. Shawna’s eye as a fellow photographer gave us new ideas and together, we came away with some memorable shots. Thanks for letting me photograph your sweet and beautiful family!
