winter is the time for home ~ family photography

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, 
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:
it is the time for home.  
                                                     - Edith Sitwell 

Every photo shoot this year with the Arnoldson's has been a surprise package.  Their idea of making a collection of images from all four seasons - fall, winter, summer, spring, is simply brilliant.  We have so much fun with every creative idea.  Their sweet dog, Bonnie, has learned her place and has quite the 
sweet smile too.  

It was such a beautiful and freezing winter's eve.  
Thank you for the smiles and for all the silly fun!

silly-beaming-smiles-of-joy ~ family photography

Let's give the historians something to write about! 
                                      - Propertius

I have such feelings of silly-beaming-smiles-of-joy when I see these photos.  
Seriously...what a back story to this photo shoot!

Thank you Griffin Family for your HUGE hearts, patience, and fun loving attitude.  
Your inspirational family really touched my heart and I will always be so grateful for this day.
(I have since purchased another 3 SD cards!)    


love's home ~ family photography

Where we love is home, 
home that our feet may leave, 
but not our hearts. 
                   - Oliver Wendell Holmes 

A truly inspiring and fun-filled family.  I don't remember laughing that much during a a photo shoot, we really had a good time didn't we?  Thank you for such a special evening~ I can't wait to do it again!

shine from within ~ little one photography

Let nothing dim the light that shines from within~ 
                                                        - Maya Angelou

When we first met, just weeks after this little one was born, I instantly fell in love with this darling girl and her sweet family (Grandma & Chester, too).  

Being Had's photographer the past two years has been pure joy~

 Thank you for YOU!  


Joy is here ~ family photography

Joy is not in things; it is in us.
                                             -Richard Wagner

(one of my most favorite  shots this year) 

In the seasonal photos we are taking, this family has been such a joyful part of my life.
Every three months we are doing a new collection of family photos. The photo shoots have been
 so unique and really seem to capture each personality.

It is such a gift to see a beautiful family grow is such a sweet way!   

I can't wait to see what we do in the snow!  


loving hearts ~ family photography

"A loving heart is the truest wisdom..."
                                                    - Charles Dickens 

It is always a gift to be the photographer of a large family.  
Seriously, I love it~  

This family is such a treasure to me.  Not only are they sweet, brilliant, and 
handsome (beauties, too) they have sheep.  You know me, that IS the greatest love (giggling).  

Such a fun evening, I hope we will do it again soon~
