Portrait Session | My Family

Once every few years, we take family photos with my husband’s side of the family. This time around, my mother-in-law entrusted them to me. I shot these with a tripod, remote, and big memory card. It’s not easy getting 9 adults and 4 kids to look at the camera, keep their eyes open, and smile. Aside from glare on some of the glasses (which we worked pretty hard to try and avoid), I’m pretty happy with the results!

Portrait Session | Winter Family Photos

I had such a great time taking photos of this family this weekend! They were perfect – full of laughter, interacting as a family, and just being themselves. Their outfits were coordinated by a relative who works at the Gap – can’t you tell? Here are a few of many favorites.

Photo of the Day: Country Morning Fog

We stayed at my in-laws this weekend in Southeast Kansas. As I stumbled my way downstairs, still half asleep around 7 a.m., I saw this out the front door. I immediately grabbed my camera and headed outside, barefoot and in my pj’s. My in-laws weren’t the least bit surprised when I came back in with wet grass clippings caked to my feet. They sure do know me! This photo is dedicated to my mother-in-law – today is her birthday!
