The Hartman Family [Thornton Family Photographer]

Today I was able to photograph a super fun family.  They heard of me through my lovely MiL, thanks to her picture of Miss Anni on her desk.  Despite the dropping temperatures, I had an awesome time using their backyard (you heard me right, this is their sweet backyard!) to capture their family… and obviously I was so excited I had to sit down immediately to get a sneak peek out! 

These two were a photographer’s dream!  They were up for anything and their dad kept them (and me) laughing the whole time.

The adorable (and active!) little cousin was definitely ready to play.

Today was awesome!  Thank you so much for letting me capture your family’s joy!

Kelsey and Michael [Colorado Engagement Photographer]

Ah…back to Colorado. I got to explore a new part of downtown Denver as well discover that I definitely hadn’t seen all of Wash Park.  Despite a rough start (all my fault… losing my wallet, therefore not having money to park and then realizing I didn’t have Kelsey’s number!), the shoot was great!  Kelsey and Michael went with the flow and were simply themselves: a photographer’s dream!

The Willis Family [Atchison Family Photographer]

This family is another one of my “from the beginning” families (can you tell I spent some time at my alma-mater with all of these).  While I wasn’t able to shoot their wedding, I took their engagement pictures and one year pictures of Miss Agnes.  Now Rose is one and I got to take some more!  This was such a fun shoot and while the girls were a little shy, their absolute cuteness and distinct personalities shone through.  (Plus they have the prettiest matching dresses!  I love that shade of blue.)

The Lojewski Family [Topeka Family and Newborn Photographer]

The Lojewski’s are another family that I have gotten to photograph from the very beginning.  I lived with Meghan my junior year of college and got to watch her fall in love with Mark, get engaged, get married and start their beautiful family.  This shoot was especially special as Mark was home on brief leave from his overseas deployment in order to see his newest little one, Emmalyn (only 5 days old in these pictures).  The last time I saw Abby, she was only 5 months old.  Now she is nearly a year and a half and just moving constantly!  I am so grateful and humbled to be a part of this family’s journey.  I can’t wait to see what else their family has in store!     
Tiny little Emmalyn was so awake!  I don’t think she slept a minute I was there.
I love the pure excitement in Abby’s face as she touches her sister’s little toes. 
I love you, Lojewski’s!  Thank you for letting me document your life!
