Rachel and Austin combined their engagement session with their family pictures and I love the results! We had a cold afternoon but I’m glad the sun was shining.

It was great to have the Mobley family in front of my camera again! We normally do an in home session, but this time we braved the cold for some beautiful outside shots. I love the way these turned out.

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fall evening to take the Colthurst family pictures. It’s always a challenge when there are multiple families with lots of little ones involved, but I think we still got some great shots!

You can’t go wrong with an adorable family and the perfect fall colors. I loved having Ashley, Jon, and Liam in front of my camera for their family pictures again this year.

I had a great time time with Hillary, Brock, and Elliott for their family pictures. I took Hillary and Brock’s maternity pictures at the same location last year, and it’s fun to see their family grow!
