my sweet, precious, adorable, loving, clever, hand waving, bubble blowing, evil laughing, aunt coco loving, super squeezable niece has turned ONE today!!!! it’s crazy how an entire year has gone by with this amazing teeny being!  she has brought so much joy to my world.  as i sit here with tears welling up in my eyes, just thinking about the amount of love i have for her!  a first birthday in april wouldn’t be complete without pretty spring flowers (forsythia-one of my favs) and a cake smash of course!

i quite often do business, professional and political headshots, but i don’t ever blog them, because they are pretty straight forward and to the point. but, when one of your best friends (and CKP 2nd shooter and assistant), dives into a business venture and is rocking it out like i would only expect her to, her new professional images-must be shown off! 

this was such a fun and inspiring shoot.  and it is completely obvious, that kaylan is such a natural in front of the camera!  if you don’t already follow her, you need to!  here is her link to: LulaRoe Kaylan Eddy

mandy and keith celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary this past fall, with their 3 kids and hearts full. since their marriage was never blessed in the catholic church, they felt now was the perfect time. mandy carried 9 white calla lilies for each year they have been married, along with a pink, purple and blue lily as well representing each child. along side their children, their parents joined them for the blessing. i loved being there to witness this special occasion! mandy simply looks fantastic!keith looked fantastic too! 😉i think we have a mama’s boy on our hands! monty wouldn’t leave his momma’s side!
of all of our photo sessions over the years….this session was keith’s favorite!! i wonder why?! 😉
vasbinder family, i am so happy for you and thank you for letting me apart of your journey!

not too often do the guys contact me to book a photo shoot, but sly steve set up a session for him, linnea and her 2 kiddos as an anniversary present. how sweet is that!?!  i got the honor of actually calling linnea the morning of their anniversary to surprise her with the gift! we chatted for a bit and decided to set something up before we lost all the fall colors.  we picked the perfect day! it was warm (for november) the sun was shining, these 4 looked awesome, and huge smiles were just non stop! i had such a fun time with these guys and i sure hope they did too!
love love love the sibling love!!
