Roberts Family {mini}

The Roberts have the kind of love that’s contagious. Watching them interact with positive attitudes, genuine care and affection was inspiring. I left their session smiling on that cool crisp day. And those girls….future models! Ha! I’m just glad I got them in front of my lens before Hollywood finds them.

Moyers Boys {mini}

These two brothers have a unique relationship that swings from hugs to hits much the same as two tussling puppies: nipping and yapping with tail happily wagging. So full of joy and life! Prepare for many angles of their personalities as you scroll through our session below. I had just as much fun that day as they did!

Lucas Family {mini}

I am not (completely) losing my mind. I know that I just posted a Lucas Family session last week but if you know the Lucas’s, you know that there is absolutely no way I could fully capture them in a thirty minute time frame. So naturally, we set up a second session. These people are like family to me and it’s such a great feeling to have reciprocated support from fellow hardworking community members. Below you will see the side of them I love so much: pure silliness. What started as a photo session by the river turned into a laugh-fest on the train tracks. Never a dull moment.

Fraits Family {mini}

It’s always a pleasant surprise to have a group on the other side of my lens who feels comfortable just being themselves, interacting as if my lens is just ‘one of the guys’. It allows for genuine, natural photos… my favorite. That’s what happened when I spent my afternoon with the Fraits Family. These kids have a heart of gold. What a lucky daddy. Fraits Family 1 Fraits Family 2 Fraits Family 19 Fraits Family 18 Fraits Family 5 Fraits Family 6 Fraits Family 4 Fraits Family 3 Fraits Family 7 Fraits Family 8 Fraits Family 9Fraits Family 10 Fraits Family 11 Fraits Family 15 Fraits Family 14 Fraits Family 13 Fraits Family 12 Fraits Family 16Fraits Family 23 Fraits Family 20 Fraits Family 21 Fraits Family 22Fraits Family 24 Fraits Family 25 Fraits Family 26 Fraits Family 27 Fraits Family 28 Fraits Family 29Fraits Family 31 Fraits Family 32 Fraits Family 33 Fraits Family 30 Fraits Family 34

Kimberly, Justin, Echo {mini}

If dogs are family then Echo is my nephew. My spoiled little turd of a nephew. I met with Kimmy and Justin and my turd of a…I mean, Echo, on what was probably the coldest day of this year so far. I exaggerate. They were up for anything so we wandered to this rundown nook in New Market. It made a great stale backdrop for their fun-loving personalities to shine through.

Yoder Family {mini}

What a pleasure it was to visit the home of Ashley, Josh and Leo. The land their house sits on is a photographic playground and we wasted no time before tromping through the tall grass to their old barns. It was a beautiful day to spend with beautiful people who are a true inspiration to me.bsomeIMG_8735 bsomeIMG_8743 bsomeIMG_8741c bsomeIMG_8755 bsomeIMG_8753bsomeIMG_8913bw bsomeIMG_8908bwbsomeIMG_8915bsomeIMG_8768c bsomeIMG_8763bw bsomeIMG_8791bw bsomeIMG_8792 bsomeIMG_8794 bsomeIMG_8786bsomeIMG_8798 bsomeIMG_8801bw bsomeIMG_8810bw bsomeIMG_8807 bsomeIMG_8814bsomeIMG_8824 bsomeIMG_8823bw bsomeIMG_8821bwbsomeIMG_8829bw bsomeIMG_8830bsomeIMG_8863 bsomeIMG_8840 bsomeIMG_8843 bsomeIMG_8854 bsomeIMG_8853bw bsomeIMG_8852bsomeIMG_8868 bsomeIMG_8865 bsomeIMG_8874bsomeIMG_8880 bsomeIMG_8892bw bsomeIMG_8896 bsomeIMG_8899bwbsomeIMG_8922bw bsomeIMG_8933 bsomeIMG_8929 bsomeIMG_8939bw

Lucas Family {mini}

Just because the Lucas Family owns and man-handles their own amazing coffee business, doesn’t mean they’re all jacked up on caffeine all the time. And just because you have a slight case of a.d.d. after hanging out with them for an afternoon, doesn’t mean the smell of bean juice oozing from their being gave you a coffee buzz. But…one might think this is the case. That’s because those Lucas’s are dang inspiring: building a life from the ground up, raising two amazing boys, maintaining a loving marriage, juggling priorities and taking the time out of all that to support this local photog and smile for some pic-chas! Support ’em back, go buy their coffee!bsomeIMG_8263 bsomeIMG_8260bw bsomeIMG_8262cbsomeIMG_8266bw bsomeIMG_8280bw bsomeIMG_8282bsomeIMG_8297 bsomeIMG_8289bwbsomeIMG_8308 bsomeIMG_8319 bsomeIMG_8321 bsomeIMG_8324bw bsomeIMG_8328bsomeIMG_8337bw bsomeIMG_8338 bsomeIMG_8339 bsomeIMG_8343 bsomeIMG_8346bw bsomeIMG_8340bwbsomeIMG_8399 bsomeIMG_8403 bsomeIMG_8366 bsomeIMG_8363 bsomeIMG_8380c bsomeIMG_8381c bsomeIMG_8377bsomeIMG_8258bw bsomeIMG_8393 bsomeIMG_8394bsomeIMG_8424bw bsomeIMG_8428bw bsomeIMG_8430 bsomeIMG_8432bwbsomeIMG_8465 bsomeIMG_8460bw bsomeIMG_8439

Heather & Brian {mini}

Heather and Brian dropped in my studio on a cool, fall, Saturday afternoon for a short and sweet couples session. It didn’t take long for us to fall into the comfort zone and get to snapping. Their genuine nature is simply comforting and I truly enjoy their company, for photos and otherwise.

Rascal {mini}

So there I was in Classic Tuxedo, picking up a bow tie…for a dog. Don’t mind me. I was pumped to do my first puppy session. Especially with a pup I’m so fond of. Especially with a pup in a bow tie! What?! When I got back into my car to drive to my studio all I could do was think of puppy puns (and crack myself up). Here goes: Pupxedo. Dress to the K-9’s. Bow-wow Tie. Furmal Session. Dog Photog-RUF-y. Ok ok…that’s as far as I got. It was a short drive. Feel free to leave your punny thoughts in the comment section.
Meet Rascal: He’s…a little rascal. And as sweet as can be.
