Charli is SO much fun to photograph. It honestly never seems like going to work when we have her sessions. She has always been so smiley and giggly, I mean even when she was in that hard toddler age when most parents dread photo sessions with their energetic little ones, she still was so much […]

We got to meet up with the Byers family at their farm for their session and got to meet their cute little guy, Henry.  We love it when photo locations can be special and unique to our clients, so the farm was the perfect spot. Oh and not to mention the light was FABULOUS, I […]

It is hard to believe this little guy is already 3! We always love getting together with the Harris family, it feels more like hanging out than an evening at work. And I think Joseph even enjoyed it since he got to play a little during his session. We are thankful for clients who are […]
