Judah {Growing}

The fabulous Jewel & Jason have an equally model-worthy son. Blue eyes, wispy curls, and a gentle personality- you can't help but melt! I only got a few minutes with him before I went to work photographing his parents, but was glad to get some face time with his sweet, deep stares.
Enjoy!

Jason & Jewel {Couples}

Photographing is usually part work, part play; but this shoot was ALL play! Jewel is great photographer herself and was already brimming with ideas for props.  Can I bring my own couch and antique props? Um, Y.E.S! The whole set-up was like a photographer's dream. And how can you not love a husband who is willing to dress up?!

Thanks, Jason and Jewel, for all the fun!

T Family {Love}

To know this family is to love them. I first did their family portraits after they had just adopted their first two children from Ethiopia. Their oldest son happens to be one of my oldest son's best friends, and it's been amazing to watch how both kids have thrived in a loving family.  This fall Josh and Bethany adopted another son and daughter from Ethiopia. So enjoy these photos of this beautiful family of six brought together by a sovereign God who created the idea of adoption.

Country Party

Since two of their three children have their birthdays around Christmas (not exactly a good time of the year for birthday parties), Jessica and Evin decided to throw a big party for all three of their kids in November.  They live on a beautiful farm, and they definitely know how to throw a fabulous kid's party. 
Here are some of their ingredients for a perfect country party...

1. Birthday Kids

2. Crafts

4. Pony Rides!

5. Kid-Crafted Cakes

6. Games

7. Face Paint


8. Favors

9. Balloons

H Family {Love}

These clients were a pain! So fussy and demanding. Kidding...kidding! It's actually one of my favorite families in the whole world. This is my sweet sister and her family!! Christine and I grew up doing everything together, and her hubby and mine are now best buds, too. Not to mention my superlatively adorable nephew whom I love like a son.  You'll have to forgive me if I went a little overboard in the amount of preview pictures...I just can't get enough of them!
