a night on the farm

we decided that the only thing that could have made this session any better would have been a chocolate cake (duh) and some bug spray - like a gallon or 3. 

an extremely amazing family, super fun and so good to one-another... refreshing!  I rode out their family farm in WI with them, and it's fun to think of my boys getting to be these boys ages... super great kids. 

the buildings and fields in the images have emotional significance and memories for this family, so it was great to be able to use this location for their family photos.

but holy-moly, the mosquitoes were UNBELIEVABLE!  I have NEVER seen the likes of them... I am still itching just thinking about it!  I have millions of outtakes from the session of one of them swatting themselves, or a big blurred image from me swatting myself as I shot.   Made me laugh... and itch.

 thanks guys - next time I'll bring cake AND twizzlers!

gluckliche kinder

These sweet littles were here visiting from Europe and I had the pleasure of meeting them out in Marine on St. Croix one evening.

They were so happy to run.. and dance... and be adorable!  It was really fun capturing them in action.  The cute outfits their mom picked turned up really nice with the evening sun filtering through them.  Loved every minute of it!  This is one of those sessions when it took all my effort to put my camera away at the end of the session.  I could have photo'd them all night I think.

Thanks so much you guys!!!

long boarding

I learned what 'long-boarding' is.  Never had heard of it.  Pretty cool though.  I am sure one of my boys will want one soon.  Maybe I'll try it then, wasn't about to (break my neck) at this senior session...we'll see.

This is the brother of this guy.  You might recognize some of the background from his session.  They have a pretty cool place for a session.  And I am always honored to be asked back on such occasions!

We had great weather - I am loving the senior guys this summer, they have had lot's of great ideas and have been such fun sessions!

Best of luck in your senior year 'C'!!  Thanks for the fun afternoon :)

they do

2 sweet souls renewed their wedding vows to each other on a Saturday.
I was so excited to be there to capture it.

She wasn’t nervous – just excited and about to marry again, the man whom she loves.
He just kept staring at her – and smiling.

The morning was so beautiful and full of joy.
Surrounded by those whom they hold dear, they were renewed.
There were smiles, laughter and tears.
And mostly love.

I couldn't even see through my tear-filled viewfinder when their personal letters to one another were read.

I am so happy for you guys! xoxo
