Zac – New Prague class of 2014

My goal is to get one senior edited a day.  I am fighting a terrible cold but I am determined not to go to bed tonight until I have Zac’s pictures all edited.
I can do this…I can do this…I can do this.
I really love this first shot.  I tried a new technique I learned today from an online webinar training class.  I think I am really going to like some of the skills I learned.

I know these two are quite similar.  I just couldn’t decide which one I like better.
The top one is a more crisp edit but there is something about the last one.
I just love the warm hazy sun rays.

OK my break is over.  Time to get back to editing.  I hope SNL is good so it helps to keep me awake tonight!

The Korba Family

Here is another of my favorite families that I have been photographing since their wedding.  I feel so blessed to have families that entrust me with their family portraits year after year.  Thank-you from the bottom of my heart!

Oh my, how could you ever tell him no!  Those baby blue eyes would get me every time.

How fun is this series?

The Hartwig Family

I have such a special place in my heart for this family.  My son was a ring bearer and Kari (the mom) was a flower girl in my best friends wedding when they were like 4.  Then I photographed Kari and Jeff’s wedding and have had the pleasure of photographing both of there daughters first year portraits.
So I feel so blessed that they continue to come to me for their family portraits.

Part of the reason I love these guys so much is the fact that they have such a great sense of humor.
I asked Jeff if he would pick up his little girl and throw her in the air.  So what does he do, grabs Kari instead.  I love the way the girls are watching Mom and Dad.  He is such a nut! lol

This is more what I was thinking. ha ha
I love how Karlee is getting ready to jump too.

Ha ha, they both got some height here.  Love this one!!!

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!
