The Miller Family

At the beginning of December, I headed downtown here in Wellman to photograph the Miller family. Despite some chilly weather, we got some great family shots and pictures of each of their children.

The Smith Family

Last November, I photographed the wedding of Jaci and Jared. This year, I had the pleasure of seeing them once again and meeting their new addition, Elias. He is simply adorable! Despite not being a fan of having his clothes changed, he was a great sport for photos.

Brian & Julie {Newlyweds}

On the Friday after Thanksgiving, I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Brian and Julie. They had a beautiful ceremony at St. Mary's in Solon surrounded by close friends and family. The reception was held at Brosch Chapel. It was a beautiful intimate gathering and was an excellent way to celebrate their love and the love of their family and friends.

Ben & Jess {Engaged}

At the end of November, I met up with Ben & Jess for their engagement session. Despite the chilly weather, we got some amazing shots. We started our session at the Iowa River Power Restaurant bridge and the wonderful prairie area on the other side of the river there. Afterward, we headed to the Ped Mall area to finish the session. We found some great spots in the alleys there. I love the pictures on the spiral staircase!

Grady {Newborn}

In November, this sweet little peanut joined me in the studio. I adore newborn sessions and this little guy was an amazing little model. At the time of the session, he was only 12 days old. It's a perfect age for newborn photos. He was wonderfully cooperative, sleeping through most of his session.

Julie {Bridal Portraits}

Last month, Julie came in for her bridal portrait session. Bridal portraits are a wonderful opportunity to get gorgeous photos of you in your wedding gown. They are typically more formal than a "trash the dress" session and are done before the wedding.
