Here we are, the year is slowly winding to a close. It is a time to remember the year that has come and gone and to look ahead to the year that lies before us. As I reflect on 2015, I cannot help but smile. 2015 has been an amazing year for Geno Photography!
I am truly blessed to have such amazing clients. They are what makes my job so great. I have had the opportunity to meet many great couples and photograph weddings all over the state and out of state as well. I have had the pleasure of snuggling and photographing many sweet newborns. I have gotten to capture special moments in the lives of many families. It has been a very blessed year.
As I look to the new year, I am filled with excitement at all the wonderful experiences yet to come. Already, my calendar is filling and I have been meeting so many lovely couples, whose weddings I am greatly looking forward to capturing. 2016 will be another wonderful year I am sure.
Thank you to all my clients for allowing me the honor of being a part of your lives as I capture your milestones! I am truly blessed.

At the very beginning of November, I headed to Kent Park in Oxford for the Hotka family session. It was a warm, bright afternoon and the leaves were gorgeous.

On a chilly morning in late November, I met out on a country road outside of Wellman with the Pollard family for their portrait session. They were troopers and lasted twenty minutes in the chilly wind. I think we got some great portraits of them with the beautiful field behind them.

In October I had the pleasure of assisting Shuva Rahim of Accent Photographics with capturing the beautiful wedding of Stacie and Brian at the Celebration Farms Timber Frame Barn. The autumn weather was perfect and the colors were just beginning to turn. Perfection.

At the beginning of November, I met up with the Schrader family for their session. It was a chilly evening, but the weather was gorgeous. It truly doesn't get much better than four adorable kiddos and a phenomenal sunset. Perfection!

Seriously, how sweet is Ainsley?! At the time of her session, she was only four days old and just an itty bitty peanut. She did wonderfully during her session and was full of adorable little smiles. I'm smitten!

I met with the DeFord family at Wilson's Orchard during golden hour one beautiful October evening. The weather was gorgeous. Such a perfect evening for portraits! I love their outfit choices. The gray, black, and denim with a few pops of red were perfect for the orchard.

After the grand exit from the church, we headed to the Old Capitol, just a block over from the Newman Catholic Student Center. It was great to have some more time to photograph Julie and Lee. Their bridal party waited on the bus, while we got some great portraits around the Old Capitol and the other gorgeous buildings close by.

Happy birthday to my sweet G! She is seven...wait, I must have typed that wrong. She cannot possibly be seven! Crazy how time flies. Seven years ago, as a client was leaving the studio at the end of their session my water broke. Just a few short hours later, little Miss G joined our family and it's never been the same since. Love this girl!! She is my sneaky, stubborn little girl who is so smart, loving and beautiful. I cannot imagine my life without her. So again, little Miss G, wishing you the happiest of birthdays! I love you!!

I had such a wonderful time with the Miller family at Wilson's Orchard in October. The weather was perfect and the location was gorgeous for their family portraits. Their two little guys are so adorable!

After we finished with the bridal party portraits on the golf course, we headed back to the clubhouse to photograph the family portraits. Unfortunately, the sunlight was harsh which limited our locations for portraits. Thankfully on the back of the clubhouse there was a great spot for portraits.

In late October, I met with the Martin family for their fall mini-session at Lake MacBride. It was a beautiful fall day, and the sun was shining brilliantly through the golden leaves. Lovely!

At the beginning of October, I headed to the Newman Catholic Student Center, to capture Julie and Lee's wedding day. We began the day with their first look. You could see the joy radiating from Julie as she walked up to tap Lee on the shoulder.

On a bright autumn day in the middle of October, I headed to Middle Amana to the Amana Colonies Golf Course for the wedding of Corey and Teressa. There was a slight chill in the air, but the sun was bright and warm. The trees were starting to show their golden colors, truly a beautiful sight and a perfect day for a wedding.

In the middle of October, I met with Thomas and Lisa at St. Mary's in Iowa City to begin their engagement session. It was a beautiful fall evening, perfect for portraits.

Recently, I had the pleasure of capturing April and Chris' maternity session. Three years ago, I photographed their beautiful wedding at A Touch of Class in Cedar Rapids, though honestly, it doesn't seem possible that it's been three years. I'm so excited for them as they prepare to welcome their new, little baby boy.

The ceremony was held at the beautiful Washington Prairie Lutheran Church, just outside of Decorah. I remember driving by there many times while I lived in Northeastern Iowa, but I had not had the opportunity to go in the church before. It was lovely.

On a gorgeous Monday evening in September, I met with Phillip and Megan at the Iowa City Public Library to begin their engagement session. Thankfully, they didn't think I was completely crazy as I navigated them down the back alleys, which are some of my favorite places to shoot in downtown Iowa City. I especially love the area behind Atlas. The ivy wall and spiral staircase are amazing!

I had such a great time capturing Jameson's newborn session. At the time of his session, Jameson was two weeks old. He was just tiny and perfect. Despite being an older newborn, as typically sessions are done within the first week-ten days, he was a great sleeper and did so well during his session. Often older babies are more awake and less cooperative with posing, but Jameson was a pro.

I seriously love this tree in the evening light. In past years the area around the willow tree has been well maintained. Unfortunately, this year it seems that it has been removed from the mowing area at City Park. So it took a little trekking through weeds to get to it, but it was totally worth it. Thankfully Mason and Bridgette were troopers and went along with me.
The second half of our session was at the area around the IMU. I love the old Row House. The colors in the metal went so well with the colors in Mason and Bridgette's outfits. I love the series of them interacting along the Row House east wall.
To end the session, the evening light over the IMU bridge was a perfect setting. I love their portraits on the bridge!
I had such a great time with Mason and Bridgette. They were so relaxed and easy to work with. I cannot wait for their wedding this November!
