| Rohrs Family 2020 |

November has been unusually warm and we are all taking full advantage of it!  The color has almost completely disappeared from the trees, the crops are harvested, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Last weekend I had the pleasure of capturing the Rohrs Family, a family that is very dear to our hearts because they are also part of our family.  We headed to their family farm to use their gorgeous red barns and then headed out to their woods to find some color and even see where Tyler dropped his first deer from his tree stand that you see in their sneaks!  Growing up just down the road form one another, enjoying horse rides, farming, and even polka dances together, we love spending time with them all; Luke, Heather, Tyler, and Abbi all played a part in our wedding, we enjoy hearing Luke play and sing in the family polka band, and he is my favorite polka dance partner!  They all have hearts of gold and love our kids like their own, they’ll do anything for you, and I couldn’t have been more excited when they asked to do a family session this fall.  Even though we didn’t have much of a sunset to end the evening, we still captured a wonderful silhouette with the farm behind them; Thank You Rohrs Family for a wonderful evening!

| Wheeler Family 2020 |

My time with the Wheeler Family never disappoints, this year we went off roading!  A good reminder to always come prepared, or at least bring a 4×4 😉  Little Miss Moline has grown so much since last year’s session!  We headed out to their woods and found some great spots that hadn’t gotten too wet from the previous days rains.  Miss Mo hammed it up for the camera and couldn’t have been any cuter; we even did her traditional John Deere pedal tractor pose!  I love spending time with this sweet family each year, thank you Wheelers for a wonderful morning!

| Grooms Family 2020 |

Fall brings such wonderful colors to the crisp cool air!  While some areas have many leaves left on the trees, others have become bare so quickly.  Crops are disappearing from the fields and doorsteps are now decorated with corn stalks, pumpkins, scarecrows, and mums.  Last weekend I headed out to a local woods with the Grooms Family, another of our yearly sessions that is always eventful with Mason’s antics and the gorgeous smiles from Addie & Olivia.  We found so many great areas of color, it was hard to decide on just one place to capture them!  They have grown so much over the years, I am soon to be the shortest among them!  Thank You Grooms Family for a fun evening!

| Britenriker Family 2020 |

As we reach mid October it’s hard to know if there will be color on the trees or color on the ground, but last weekend we were lucky enough to have some beautiful yellows and reds on the trees for the Britenriker Family’s session! With eleven kids, eight adults, a couple dogs, and some roaming chickens, we had lots of smiles and laughs in such a beautiful setting! Their navy, gold, and burgundy outfits coordinated perfectly with the brilliant yellows we found back on the trail in the woods.  It’s hard to believe it’s been six years since we last captured this group, they have grown by leaps and bounds!  Thank You Britenriker Family for a wonderful evening!

| Moser Family 2020 |

Fall colors have quickly changed and the leaves are falling!  Last Saturday we had a gorgeous, cool day and I had the pleasure of working with the Moser Family, a family that I have known since I was little.  Fellow photographer Cody, his mom, dad, and younger brother Garrett made the evening such fun, so many smiles and laughs!  Getting to work with and capture other photographers and their families is an amazing thing; in a business where there seems to be so much dislike among one another, I love to get to know, share, learn from, and grow with others!  Thank you Moser Family for a great fall evening, can’t wait to catch up again soon!

| Zirkes Family 2020 |

Fall is finally here and the weather has been beautiful!  While this year has been unusual to say the least, it has been refreshing to see so many familiar faces!  Two years ago I met Alicia and Matt for their maternity session, they were complete strangers to me then, but today, they are wonderful friends whom I love catching up with!  They recently moved to the Cleveland area, but I was so excited to meet up with them while they were here visiting family.  Warren has grown so much and has such an adorable personality and a love for dinosaurs that you can see we had his dad use to help get him to smile!  We picked up right where we left off and it was so refreshing to see them, laugh, and smiles together.  Thank you Zirkes Family for an amazing evening, can’t wait for our next session!

Quinones Family 2020 |

As summer is winding down and we start getting ready for hoodies, pumpkins, and fall colors, there is still so much summer beauty around us!  I met up with the Quinones Family at a local woods where we found gorgeous greens and sweet little yellow flowers!  It’s been a few years since we captured this adorable family and they did not disappoint!  Mila helped me to pose her mom and dad and even got some fabulous smiles from them; we even caught a natural sun flare!  It’s been an honor to watch this sweet family grow since photographing Mila as a newborn; thank you Pops, Jo, and Mila for a wonderful evening!

| Trey Siler 2020 |

Kind hearted, genuine, and funny, these are just three of the words to describe this handsome guy!  It has been such an honor to capture him over the years and watch him grow, I am officially looking up at him these days!  Trey is a natural in front of the camera and we are constantly laughing during his sessions.  I can’t wait to hear about all of the amazing things he accomplishes this school year!

Each year I look forward to this young man’s session!  He grows so much in just one year and this year he is quickly catching up to me!  Brok never ceases to amaze us with his antics at a session, from jumping into the unknown grasses to amazing us with his genuine smile and that laugh, you never know what’s around the corner.  He’s sure to have a wonderful year at school, have a blast Brok!

| 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!
