The Shelton Family

SFB_01.jpg

The Shelton Family. There's not much to say except that they're absolutely awesome. I've known Tim and Kelli for years, first as my leaders in my youth group throughout high school, and then as friends as we all got a little older. Now they've got two of the absolute cutest little girls. It's always such a blast to document families as they are. Not posed in a studio, but out in the environment where we can run and play and laugh. That's what I aim to capture, and that's what this session was all about. Taking the Shelton family exactly as they are. Way more fun that way :)

Meg + Chris + Emma + Two

See that cute tiny chick with the awesome teeth below? That's my sweet little niece, Emma. We decided to take the last 30 minutes of sunlight the other night to celebrate her first year of life, and the impending arrival of her TWO sisters in the coming weeks. This little family means so much to me, and it has been so awesome to see Meg and Chris become such stellar parents over the last 14 months. Their world is about to change big time, and we're just excited to be along for the ride with them. Sorry I'm not sorry for the cuteness overload you're about to experience.

Lauren + Brent

There was Lauren. There was Brent. There was adventuring. There was ridiculous snowglobe-like snowfall happening. There was good times had by all. I'm seriously so stoked about these two. They're just awesome amounts of fun to be around and it's just silly how much they love each other.

Jordan

My camera just loves seniors, it's as simple as that. Jordan was just a special addition to the class of 2013 that has been rocking my camera so far this fall. Seriously guys, this girl dances, sings, acts, and excels at all of the above. She's incredible. Not to mention simply a blast to hang out with and both her and her Mom kept me laughing the whole evening. That's why my "job" is never a job, it's people like this that keep me coming back for more.

Leeann + Kurt

These two are just about as sweet as it gets. They came together to make the most awesome family of three one could ever ask for, and I'm ridiculously proud and honored that I was there to be able to capture at all. Congratulations Kurt, Leeann, and Mikayla. You guys make an incredible new team.

Aliyah

Meet Aliyah Gabrielle Friday. The daughter of my sister and her husband, and consequently, my niece. She's one of the greatest joys in my family's life and she never provides a dull moment. Getting to spend time with her is one my favorite things in the world and I think you'll be able to see why.

The Welling's

WF_01.jpg

This is a family that means so incredibly much to me, its as simple as that. I shot Chandler + Jessica's Wedding, and everything else in between. Watching them learn and grow together as a family brings me such indescribable joy and seeing one of my best friends turn into an awesome husband and father has been awesome to see. So take a second and check out just how sweet the Welling's are, and if you don't smile at least once while looking at these photos you may need some help ;)
