The H Family

Let me just say that it should not be hot and muggy at 10 o’clock in the morning!  You’d never know it by looking at the photos though!  The “H” family graciously followed me all over Elmwood. The boys were great and gave me lots of wonderful smiles. Here is a sneak peek…

 

From the weekend

It was a fantastic weekend. The weather was warm and sunny, and I got to spend the entire time doing what I love! Here are a few sneak peeks…

 

 

The S Family

It was such a joy to visit with this lovely Alabama family! These former Nebraskans were in town visitng for the week. Lucky for me, we were able to squeeze in a portrait session. Here is a sneak peek from our walk through Elmwood Park.

Ella & Claire

I had the pleasure of meeting this adorable family today. This session was one of the quickest ever – done in 27 minutes!! Ella and Claire were so cooperative and full of smiles.

Maya

One year ago, I was called to Methodist Hospital to photograph a baby who was born still. Upon my arrival, I met the Wheat family. They introduced me to their beautiful baby girl, Peyton. My heart ached for them, and I will never forget the sorrow I felt that day. Fast forward exactly one year to the day later; I received an e-mail that this family was expecting their second daughter, due any day. Sweet baby Maya was born the very next day, exactly one year and one day after her sister. What an amazing story! I get chills every time I think of them! I am deeply honored to introduce Maya Estelle…

The “N” Family

Can you say Indian Summer? I am stunned by this warm weather lately! Who knew it would last?? Well, I’m definitely thankful for these warm November days as it has allowed me to get all of these wonderful outdoor sessions! Meet the “N” family…little Vivian & Graham kept me hopping that’s for sure. They were full of energy and ready for fun! Dad was on “funny-face” patrol and who knew the word “peanut” was so funny?
