My Silly Valentine's

It isn't often that I take the time to do an actual photo session with my own kiddos.  It usually requires a lot of bribing, some tears and major frustration for all of us.  A week ago I had my studio set up for a session and my daughter and littlest guy sat down and said, "Take our pictures."  It was so easy and the smiles were natural so I thought why not give a planned session another try. Later in the week I picked out their attire, chose a simple Valentine's theme, bribed the kids with $2 to the dollar store and snapped some pictures.  I have to say this was by far the easiest photo session I have had with my kiddos. They were well behaved, focused, gave me lots of smiles and we even had fun! Yes, I said!  Micah, my youngest is a natural when it comes to getting pictures taken.  He is a ham with the camera and posed himself in many of the photos. I might be a little bias but all 3 of my kiddos are pretty darn cute! They are fun, energetic and often very silly!  Happy Valentine's Day from me to you. Enjoy my silly valentine's!

This is what I mean by silly!

Liana {2014 Senior}

I met Liana the day of her senior session.  Liana was a ton of fun to work with. She came to her session unsure about getting her pictures taken and left a pro with being in front of the camera.  The temperatures the day of her photo shoot were quite cold so we only braved the outdoors long enough to get some fun winter shots.  We got the best of both worlds, indoor and outdoor shots. She ROCKED her session! Not only is she absolutely gorgeous and has the coolest hair style, she was easy to talk to and extremely sweet.  The pictures are proof of how amazingly stunning she is!  Thank you Liana for the privilege of taking your senior pictures!

Austin & Kendra Engaged {Butte, MT}

I was so excited to take Austin and Kendra's engagement pictures and I'm looking forward to their October wedding! Kendra and I were able to meet for the first time over coffee a few months ago and it was like sitting down with an old friend!  I left our meeting excited to have met someone as kind as Kendra and with anticipation of meeting Austin at their engagement session.  Austin was able to come home from his military duties over the holidays and we braved the cold to get these beautiful images.  Austin is absolutely smitten with Kendra and they way she looks at him gives even me butterflies.  I might have been there with my camera but they only had eyes for each other.  I adore how their love radiates from the pictures!  Congratulations on your engagement Austin and Kendra!  I cannot wait for October!
