Trinity's Christmas Portraits

Yesterday I photographed Trinty and her parents' Christmas portraits. Trinity's mother was born a little before Christmas and was sent home from the hospital in a special stocking in honor of the season. Thankfully it was kept safe through the years and we were able to get Trinity's picture in it. A very special moment! It was great fun working with this blue eyed beauty. She sure is a cutie!

The busy years to come

2011 is already getting some serious interest. I already have met with a few brides and have a few on the calendar. It seems like brides are taking more time to plan their weddings, which is a wonderful thing. Take your time, enjoy the process. Plus booking early locks you in at lower rates. Prices tend to change due to many factors and usually these factors do not bring about a decrease, so it’s really smart to book your vendors and venues early. But make sure you are booking someone you have faith in and want to work with. Don’t let price be the deciding factor.

Back on point, things are filling up quickly. The fall of 2010 is almost full already. There still remain a few spring and summer dates, but as the winter goes on fewer and fewer dates will be available. If you’re interested in wedding photography, I’d recommend contacting Geno Photography soon or the date might be filled.

I’d like to take a moment and thank all of our wonderful couples we’ve worked with this year! Every photographer says they have the best clients, but that’s only because they haven’t worked with you and don’t know any better. :) To all my brides and grooms for 2010 and 2011, I am so looking forward to working with you all! You are all amazing!!

Jack & Teresa

Yesterday I had a fun and chilly shoot with Jack and Teresa. They were so easy to work with, as was their dog. We ended up with some great shots of them as a family.

Elida's Pilates Studio

On Sunday, I met Elida and Nick again at Elida's Pilates Studio in downtown Decorah. We took some photos to help enhance her Studio website. It was a lot of fun seeing the different stretches and working with Nick and Elida again.

Elida {Maternity}

While in Decorah this past weekend, I spent my Saturday afternoon with the lovely Elida and her husband Nick. They are due with their seventh boy this next week. Very exciting! We had a great maternity session and got so many wonderful shots that it was hard to pick which ones to share here. These are only a fraction on the photos we took on Saturday. Simply gorgeous!

The 322 EN BN Dining Out

This weekend I accompanied my husband to Decorah for his third annual Dining Out, a formal military dinner, for his Army Reserves unit. As I have in the past, I brought along my studio set up and took formal pictures of the soldiers and their guests during throughout the night. It was a wonderful time. Here are a few of the soldiers:

And of course me with my soldier. :)

Sophie {Senior Portraits}

Last Wednesday, I had a great time meeting up with Sophie at the Ped Mall for a fun senior portrait session. Despite the chilly November weather we got some fun urban shots. Then we headed back to the studio to finish the session. Sophie got to be the first to use my new background (which I love!).

Yesterday I had a wonderful session with Callie. After a few times rescheduling we finally got to go out and got shooting. Despite the chilly temps, Callie was a great sport and we have a lot of fun around downtown Iowa City and the Ped Mall.


This past Sunday, I also had a session with Kendall, a senior at Mid-Prairie. He wasn't very outspoken during the pictures, but was a great sport. He definitely preferred the "serious" look.

Adam {revisited}

This past Sunday, I met again with Adam to finish his senior portraits. Unfortunately during our first session we ran out of daylight, but the weather was lovely on Sunday for a reshoot. We headed to downtown Wellman and then out to Foster Woods and got some great shots.

Jake & Andrea's Wedding

Last Saturday was simply gorgeous all around. Beautiful weather and a wonderful couple made the day superb. Jake and Andrea celebrated their wedding in Iowa City at the beautiful United Methodist Church. They were so easy and fun to work with. We got some amazing shots.

This evening I had a great senior portrait session with Adam. He's a senior at Williamsburg and we started our session at the Williamsburg High School football field. Unfortunately, it gets dark quickly so we will have to finish our outdoor session on Sunday. But we did get some studio shots in after the sun went down. Adam was a lot of fun to work with.

Vanessa Grace

On Friday, I had a fun session with the adorable Vanessa Grace. It's hard to believe she's 6 months old already. It seems like only a month or so ago I too her newborn portraits. She is simply adorable, as is her older sister. It was so much fun working with both of them again.
