This family does it ALL — not only did they move into a new house this very same weekend, they also scheduled family photos!!  I love it…because it’s all about getting things done.  Their new digs came with lots of landscaping and gorgeous greenery, so it was a perfect spot for photos. Can you believe Lucy is 8-months old?!  How are her older siblings so BIG already?!  It was a great morning, and I cannot wait for them to see these.  Enjoy!

The last time I ventured to Marshalltown, IA was about five years ago.  It was for a Senior session, along with some family images, in the middle of gorgeous rolling hills and farmland.  So imagine how excited I was when reading a text from Sarah that they want me to return!  I made the drive to Iowa on a lovely day, and arrived to the “new” digs.  The kids/grands were in town from the NE, and they knew it was a perfect opportunity to document them all together!  They were kind enough to serve me dinner, and I snapped just a few images of everyone spending time together in the kitchen.  It was a total blast, and I’m so thrilled that we were able to spend some more time together.  Thank you everyone!

I met this family at Union Station — everyone was together in the same city (not a common occurrence), and this location has sentimental meaning.  Perfect!  It may have been windy outdoors, but we had to take some images across the street as well.  Everyone was so much fun, and went-along with my crazy antics and silliness as if it was a typical afternoon…ha!  It was a pleasure meeting all of you, and I’m sure Henry will continue to keep you all on your toes… 🙂

I remember photographing the Expecting session for Chelsey and Lee — and I couldn’t have imagine how AMAZING that tiny girl would be.  Here she is, now TWO, running around trying to do her own thing!  While the three of us just ran along behind her trying to keep up, oh and take the occasional photo, she was having the best time.  I think she could have spent an hour or so crawling inside that 6-foot bush… 🙂  It’s a complete joy to be a part of so many fun milestones with this family — and I can’t wait to see them again!

Toddlers are FULL of energy, and sitting down to take photos doesn’t always sound like the best time, right?  But we adults have a few tricks up our sleeves, and there were lots of smiles and laughs from these kids!  The weather was lovely & we captured some amazing photos of the whole crew.  Thank you all, and I hope to see you again soon!
