Class of 2012!

I am so excited to post these....I began with my first senior this summer and I may be a little bias (she is my ever-sweet cousin from SD who I cannot believe is a senior!) but I think the summer sun helped show the radiance of this girl! And check out my two boys...casual and cool with a masculine edge.

More Picture-Perfect Families!

I am so excited to post these next families...they are all dear friends of mine and I am in love with these photos!


The Modene Family
I can't help but giggle every time I look at these...my buddies Kelby (10) and Maaike (7) cracked me up during this chilly shoot:-)  They were absolutely awesome and right to the point; smiles, hugs, whatever it took to get out of the cold!!  




The Thayer Family
All I can think of when I look at these photos are "sugar and spice and everything nice." Corny I know, but these girls are always dressed to the "T" and now they have added a smiley baby Graham to the mix.  6 year old Brooke, 4 year old Addison, and 5 month old baby Graham are so adorable you literally want to squish them (as their adorning mother would say:-)  


The Stading Family
I cannot look at these photos without grinning from ear to ear.  3 year old Jackson and 1 year old Ian make my day every time I see them.  They are so sweet and so full of personality that these photos speak for themselves:-)  Ian's smile is infectious and Jackson's silly tactics are all too familiar (and missed).  Love those boys!

Had to throw these in too...as if he wasn't cute enough in the above photos here are a couple more!

Ruby Bee, the First Sessions

Well, it's safe to say I am adequately caught up and can post a few sessions on the blog, but WOW...the response to Ruby Bee has been overwhelming! I am so thankful for those of you who were so quick to become clients and trust me with your families:-)  It has been an amazing three weeks...here is what I have to show for it!


The Stensland Family
My first session was with one of my oldest friends and his adorable family.  My sweet 2-year old buddy Charlie LOVED the red chair. He took it with him wherever he went the entire time we were out:-)  And 9-month old George took a little while to warm up, but decide he loved the outdoors as well.  I had a great time with these sweet boys!


The Olson Family
The Olsons are dear friends of mine, and this is the third year that I have been lucky enough to shoot them and their gorgeous daughter Isabella.  They recently added a second dog to their family...and after you see them you will immediately want three:-)  The puppies adore 8-year old Isabella and even kiss her on demand. Well....sorta:-)



The Rostad Family
The Rostads are also friends of my family, so shooting them was like shooting my own kids:-)  8-year old Lars and 6-year old Liv are not only picture-perfect, they are hilarious and fun. Their smiles really ARE contagious:-)  I had the best time with this family...and something tells me we might be hanging out in a "bachelor pad" one day together:-)



The Hollman Family
Rounding out my day of shooting was the Hollmans. The photos that came from this shoot describe this family wonderfully: Vibrant and Charismatic.  The colors pop as much as the personalities of 10-year old Ben, 8-year old Paige, and 6-year old Sam.  These kiddos are adorable and it was a joy to be around this fun-loving family!
