I don’t take a lot of newborn pictures, but after this session I definitely hope to shoot more! Emerson looked so precious with her bows. Along with her newborn pictures, we were also able to take a few family pictures!

Families, Portraits

The last time I photographed the Perez family, they were a family of 6. It’s so clear that their new addition, Enrique, is SO adored by both his parents and siblings. Their natural happiness and love for each other made my job easy.

The Cobb family was a joy to photograph! Despite the cold, the sun was shining and I loved what we were able to capture. My favorite shots are the candid ones that I was able to get in between the posed pictures.

The last time I had the Hofmann family in front of my camera was when I was just getting started with photography. It was so nice to be able to take their pictures again, a few years later. It was a windy fall day, but the sun was shining and we still got some great shots!

I loved getting to capture the Tolle family at Pinecreek Grist Mill! Tristian planned this session as a gift to his wife. This family was so happy and a true joy to capture.

We had a cold but sunny evening at West Lake Park for the McGarry’s family pictures. Their pink and grey color scheme and their outfits made this session one of my favorites.

I had a great time taking Josie’s senior pictures! We started on the Swinging Bridge in Columbus Junction and ended at the Muscatine Riverfront. I love that she included her two dogs into the session as well!

Michelle was the realtor that sold Jake and I our house. I was honored when she asked me to take her family pictures! I don’t always love shooting in the winter, but with a beautiful family and beautiful light, you can’t go wrong!
