The Horning Family

Recently, the Horning family joined me in the studio for their family session. Their little guy is so adorable! He has the cutest smile and did an excellent job with the pictures. It was a little hard to get him to stay still for his portraits by himself, as he is one very busy little guy but we still got some great shots.

Zach {Senior Portraits}

I recently met up with Zach for his senior session. We started out at the Iowa River Power Restaurant bridge.

The Meyer Family

At the end of October, I met the Meyer family at City Park for their family portraits. Their boys weren't too interested in getting their portraits taken, but with alternating poses and time for them to play we got some great shots. I love the picture of their boys laying in the leaves.

The Keber Family

The Keber family was back in the studio this fall for family portraits. It is so much fun to see how their girls have grown. I began taking their family portraits when their youngest was just a few months old.

The Hall Family

At the end of October, I headed to the home of the Hall family to photograph their beautiful family. We lucked out and had gorgeous weather for the session. Their rural home was a beautiful backdrop for the session.

Mitch + Kassi {Engaged}

I had a great time recently, wandering the Ped Mall and Pentacrest with Mitch and Kassi for their engagement session. Aside from a little wind, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful fall day for their session. The leaves were beautiful and I adore the picture of her gorgeous ring on the fallen leaf. Their wedding will be in October of next year, so the fall setting for their engagement portraits is perfect. They were great to work with, very laid back and fun.

Sam & Bryana {Engaged}

I recently photographed Sam and Bryana's engagement portraits. We met at the Ped Mall and toured the fun and funky alleyways there. Then we headed to City Park to get some great shots with the fall leaves and a more natural setting. They were a pleasure to work with and it was great to get to know them better before their wedding, my favorite part of engagement portraits. I'm very excited to capture their New Year's Eve nuptials!

Neshama {One Month Old}

I recently had this little doll in my studio for her one month portraits. She is absolutely adorable and was really a rather good sport about all of her outfit changes and the flashing of the studio lights. I'm sure it helped that she was surrounded by such a kind and loving family.

Kent + Sam

On October 8th, I photographed the wedding of Kent and Sam. They were the winners of our 2011 Amazing Wedding Giveaway and I can see why. Not only do they have a beautiful love story, but they are surrounding by such wonderful, amazing, and supportive friends and family. It was a beautiful day in so many ways.

Ava {Newborn}

I recently had the adorable little bundle of cuteness that is Ava in my studio. I love newborn sessions. Such sweet little fingers and toes. Little Miss Ava wasn't too keen on cooperating for pictures at first, but thankfully she calmed down and was a superstar for the rest of the shoot.

Jesse & Abby

On October first, I headed to the Amana Golf Course to photograph the vow renewal ceremony of Jesse and Abby. They were married a little over a year ago, just before Jesse deployed to Afghanistan. Their vow renewal was a wonderful chance for friends and family to celebrate with them and welcome Jesse back after his tour overseas.

Alexis {Nine Months Old}

Little ones grow so quickly. I love getting the chance to chronicle their first year. It is so much fun to see how much they've changed in just a few months. Alexis once again graced my studio with her beautiful blue eyes and heart melting smile. She was more interested in exploring the studio than having her picture taken though. :) We also did an outdoor session at Willow Creek Park in Iowa City. I love her little orange jacket. So adorable!!

How time has flown! Little Mister Carter was in for his 18 month portraits. It seems like just a few months ago he was in for his six month session. He is such an energetic and busy little guy. It was hard to get him to try and stay still for pictures! He had a blast running around the yard outside of the studio and we managed to get some great shots.
