| Gillengerten Family Christmas Cards 2019 |

Putting together custom Christmas cards for clients with images from their sessions is so much fun!  Creating a look that represents them and their family makes the cards even more special.  Some cards are packed full of information and family updates, but the Gillengerten’s decided to keep things crisp and clean this year with a simple look and they are stunning!  I’m sure these two sided card stock Christmas cards were enjoyed by family and friends and something that can be left up all year long!  Hoping the Gillengerten Family had a wonderful holiday season!

Though the Holiday Season has quickly come and gone, this time of year can still brings colder weather to our area, snow, sleet, rain, freezing, fog, and the occasional day of temperatures in the 60s!   It’s not only an honor to capture such special moments in clients lives, but to be able to create a custom look for them to share with family and friends during the Holidays means so much!  This last fall we met up at an old barn for the Wheeler session and were able to capture so many sweet moments of Mo and her mom and dad.  Their custom cards this year included a touch of pine, berries, and the classic Happy Holidays in the rich burgundy that they wore for their session with their sweet Mo as the focus!  She has grown so much since last year’s sessions and layout, I can’t wait to see how she changes next year!  Hoping the Wheeler Family had a wonderful holiday!

| Gerdeman Family Christmas Cards 2019 |

The Gerdemans!  I’m not sure if they could get any more adorable!  After a downpour changed our original plan for their fall session we were able to quickly find a new one and captured so many beautiful images!  Kristi sent me some great ideas for their Christmas cards and I was able to combine her ideas into one beautiful layout that fit their family and style perfectly!  Nothing beats being able to share your favorite image from your session on a custom, one of a kind Christmas card that you helped to create!  I love working with this sweet family and can’t wait to get them in front of my camera again and create another amazing Christmas card for them!  Hope you had a wonderful and Merry Christmas & wishing you a Happy New Year!

What a wonderful way to wrap up the 2019 photo season!  The Gillengerten Family’s session was on point, check out the amazing decorations at their home!  From their warm, festive fire place to mom and dad’s perfect Christmas bedroom, there wasn’t an inch of their home that wasn’t ready for the Holiday Season!  Everyone was warm and cozy in their matching pajamas, all ready for Christmas morning with their hot chocolate and candy canes in hand in front of the tree!  Their sweet kiddos did amazing and had the most hilarious faces when we did goofy pictures, you couldn’t help but smile, their laughter was contagious.  Thank you Gillengerten Family for a wonderful afternoon,  wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Just as we were getting ready for the Gerdeman Family’s session, it decided to downpour!  With some quick thinking, fast moving, and a beautifully fall dressed family, we headed out to look for a new spot!  We happened to pass a gorgeous wooded area close enough to the road that we could stay out of the mud, but far enough from the road that we would be safe.  With no idea whom the homeowners were, we pulled up and they graciously gave us the go ahead to use their property!  Despite our slight set back, the Gerdeman Family was on point all evening!  With adorable smiles from their kiddos, to the sweet laughs mom and dad were able to get out of them, it was a wonderful session!  Thank you Gerdeman Family for a wonderful evening and the flexibility to find a brand new spot all with out warning!

| Graicen Siler 2019 |

How absolutely stunning is this girl!?  Each year I wonder if Graicen will top her session from the previous year, and the answer every year is yes!  Trying to narrow down sneaks and not show the hundreds that we took was no easy feat!  No matter where we go or what we do, what season it is, or what the weather is doing, she knocks her sessions out of the park!  This year we headed out to the woods and fields, trying to catch the last of the color on the trees before it fell with the upcoming weather!  We had amazing light as golden hour approached and golden hour itself didn’t disappoint.  I had a wonderful lighting assistant in her younger brother Trey, you saw his session a few weeks ago, who was on point all night, we couldn’t have done it without him!  Next year is Graicen’s senior year, she has big plans already for what she wants to do, I can’t wait to pull her visions together!  Have a great Junior Year Graicen!

| Grooms Family 2019 |

Each year I look forward to the Grooms Family’s session!  The kids have grown so much since last year, I’m going to be the short one soon!  This year we headed out to some local barns and had a great time exploring each barn and the uniqueness it offered, amazing siding and great colors on each one complimented their fall outfits perfectly, we even got Mason to venture to the edge of the bean field!  There is never a dull moment with these three sweet kids, the jokes and smiles make the whole evening worth it.  Each year they top the year before, can’t wait to see what we come up next year!  Thank you Grooms Family for a fun evening!

| Wheeler Family 2019 |

The Wheeler Family, so sweet, kind, funny, and generous!  I love them!  I have had the pleasure of watching Noah and Christine in their dating years, celebrating their wedding, capturing their maternity, meeting little Miss Mo at just six days old for her newborn session, and watching them become amazing parents.  There is so much love in their eyes and emotions when they look their sweet girl and she gives it right back, in every dance move she gives them!  Their yearly family session is just one of the many that I look forward to, seeing how they have changed and grown, the belly laughs, and the adorable grins from Mo.  We had a beautiful, cool, and slightly blustery fall morning for their session, but Noah found a creative way to help block that wind and keep Miss Mo smiling!  Our lives are busy with work, family, and daily routines and we don’t get to see each other or talk enough, but it’s so much fun when we do see each other and can pick up where we left off!  Wheeler Family you are amazing, Happy Fall to you all!

| German Family 2019 |

Fall was in the air last week, this week we are back in the temperatures of the 80s and 90s, but the leaves are starting to change!  Last weekend I was honored to spend the afternoon with the German Family!  A wonderful extended family session full of adorable families, sweet grand kids, and amazing facial expressions from the little ones.  We met up at Sauder Village, our local living history museum that has amazing places for photos, from weeping willows and grassy places, to an old mill and wonderful old homes!  The kids did great and were thrilled to see the horse and her pony at the end of the session, brought lots of big smiles and laughter from all of them!  We found beautiful sunflowers and enjoyed walking through the Village that we had all to ourselves!  Thank you German Family for a fantastic afternoon!

| Trey Siler 2019 |

This handsome guy with sweet dance moves has just kicked off his freshman year!  I adore our sessions and conversations together, he has such a huge heart and is one of the sweetest guys around.  We headed out to Independence Dam this year and it did not disappoint!  We found some amazing drift wood that had clearly been in the water for a while and there were also some steps just along the shore of the river that had one time led up the wall, perfect for Trey!  I can’t wait to see what this year brings for Trey, best of luck in school!
