The Goldfarb Family

A few favorites from last weekend's family portraits with the Goldfarb family!   I love how easy this family can laugh and talk with with one another.  Their sons were home for a brief visit and I'm so glad we were able to capture a bit of their time together before back to their internships and school. Thank you again Goldfarb family for having me out. You're such a sweet family! I hope you have a fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend!

Spring Family Portraits

Caught some spring sunshine and some yellow blooms with this beautiful family last Saturday! It was hard to narrow down favorites for the blog preview. I just love this family! And their little Harper is such a smart little girl. She can already sing her ABCs, count, and hold up two fingers to show how old she is. It sure was fun to get to see these guys again. Can't wait to meet their newest little guy in about 7 more weeks! 

So grateful!

So grateful to Cathy and Lana at Granny D's Christmas Tree Farm and to everyone who came out for Christmas Minis last weekend! There are so many pictures I'd love to share but here are a few from a family that is especially close to my heart.

 It's a huge honor to capture memories for all of you. I am so grateful to be a part of all of your lives. Enjoy sharing your pictures with family this Thanksgiving. May you all feel loved and greatly blessed today. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Aaron & Angie's Beautiful Backyard Wedding

Aaron and Angie's wedding was so incredibly fun and gorgeous! They spent months preparing their new home for their big day and they did such an amazing job!  There are so many reasons why I absolutely loved their wedding! There was so much laughter, so many awesome details, and everyone had such a great time!

These two truly enjoy each other and I absolutely loved taking pictures for them! They were super excited about collaborating with me to create pictures that fit their personality and we had so many great spots to photograph them in! Aaron is a Lieutenant for the fire department and we were so fortunate to be able to use one of the ladder trucks and one of the homes they recently extinguished. A huge thank you to the Fire Department for accompanying us at burn site! And a super huge thank you to my assistant Jen who took such gorgeous photos and danced the rest of the night with me! Aaron and Angie it was such an honor to capture your beautiful wedding and to celebrate with you! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your day!
