Ashley – TCU Sr.

I wasn’t sure about the outdoor portion of Ashley’s session today.  There was a slight drizzle in the air and a foggy haze enveloped the sky.  I warned Ashley that we may not be able to get much for outdoor portraits, thinking the entire time that she will probably want to reschedule the outdoor portion.  Well I was beyond excited when I seen how her senior pictures turned out.  There is something quite magical about them.  I had to put up a quick sneak peek to share how beautiful they turned out.

Love, love, love these two!

I also had to share a few of her pointe photos using a new backdrop
I just got in.  I am in love with it! 
I have always been a little envious of the photographers
that have the beautiful old buildings with exposed brick. 
Well even though this is just a backdrop I think it looks very realistic.

Allie TCU 2014 Senior

It is taking me so long to edit Miss Allie’s pictures and I know she is so excited to see them so I thought I would post a few of my favorites so far.  They will be so worth the wait, hopefully you can hang in there just a couple more days.

We did get lots of smiles too, but I am always a sucker for the serious look and Allie rocked the serious expressions!

I am so in love with these two pictures!  If I had to pick a favorite from her session these two would have to be at the top of my list!


Just a few favorites.  Ha ha…now you know why it is taking me so long.  I haven’t even got to the indoor ones yet.  If you weren’t so darn cute I wouldn’t have taken so many pictures!
Oh what the heck…here is one more.
So in love with this one.
and this one…

and this one…

and…oh heck, I am in love with her entire session! lol

Yep, she doesn’t take a bad picture.

Cleo – TCU 2014 Sr

I have been on such an editing fest lately.  I have completely ignored my house for the last couple months.  Thank goodness my sweet hubby has been trying to keep the kitchen cleaned and laundry washed.  I feel so bad I haven’t been able to help out around here, but it feels so good to get so much editing done lately.

I just finished up a couple amazing sessions.  The first one I want to share is this gorgeous senior.

Can you get any more beautiful?

* * *

Well only if your are Cleo’s baby boy.

Wow, talk about good lookin parents.
I sure can tell they will make great parents.

Look at those chubby cheeks!

He was such a good baby.  He was so sound to sleep that I could do anything to him and he would not wake up.  I have had really good luck with newborns sleeping lately.
(knock on wood)  I have two more coming in this next week.  Sure hope my luck doesn’t run out!

This is one tuff girl

I took beautiful Makenzie’s senior photos a few days ago and couldn’t wait to share a quick little sneak peek from her session.  For October we had a pretty nice day but getting into the water at sunset still had to be incredibly cold.  This girl was a rockstar.  She doesn’t even look cold!

Mackenzie – New Prague Senior

Holy Moly I have had some gorgeous seniors this year!
I just finished editing Mackenzie’s photos and am blown away by her beauty. 
I sure didn’t look like this when I was a senior.
Well I was going to post just a few of my favorites but as you can see I got a little carried away.

I forgot how pretty my flowers were in August.  I am going to miss them till next summer.
This next one is so pretty it almost looks like a painting.
I really think I need some new prints for my studio. 
This one would make an amazing 20×24 canvas gallery wrap!

I had so much fun with this session!  How fun is this series!

And then to top it off we get a beautiful sunset to end the session.  Yep this was the perfect day for portraits.  Thanks for such a fun session Mackenzie!

Kaitlyn – Northfield Sr.

I am working on editing a session this evening and am blown away at how beautiful Kaitlyn’s portraits are.  It is nearly 3 in the morning and I should be in bed but I can’t stop editing them.  Everyone is just as beautiful as the previous one.

Here are just a few of my favorites so far but there are going to be so many more!
How will they ever choose? lol


I don’t want Fall to end.  I absolutely love taking pictures outdoors and miss it so much during the winter months.

Oh what the heck…here is one more, now I really need to go to bed. ha ha

Cute little baby bump

I just finished editing this session and fell in love with some of the images.  This the second maternity session I had the pleasure of photographing for this beautiful family.  I can’t wait to meet baby Mick.

I was trying something a little different from my normal style.  Very different but I kind of like it.

This was my favorite from the session!
