Abbie Rose

Abbie is the Forever Photography choice of the Cutest Kid contest.. I think she's even cuter in real life. What an angel!

We met out at Vennard College and shot at the beautiful campus. I love the shady areas they have out there, I can shoot at almost any time of day. It is awesome!

I got out my favorite vintage buggy to use today. It was awesome :)

I love her dimples in this one!

Summer days....

Today my kids and some neighbor kids wanted to have a water fight, so I let them have a hose fight in the backyard. There were 2 rules: Don't get me wet, and when I say "switch" I mean switch and give the hose to someone else. They had a blast soaking each other for several hours straight. It was so much fun. I took a bazillian pictures (668 to be exact) , so here are a few fun ones.

The girls getting their tan on.
LOL! Paybacks for all the tormenting!


haha! GoTchA!

This is Barrett, he was the winner of the Forever Photography Cutest Kid contest in the boy category! And what a little doll he is! He was on. the. run... LOL. I basically just chased him around the area, it was lots of fun! He was very aware of the camera, which made my job a real challenge. But look at some of the great stuff we got :)

Neither foot was touching the ground in this one. LOL!

Catch me if you can, lady!

Layla was the winner of the Forever Photography Cutest Kid Contest in the girl category. What a little doll!

She was so much fun to photograph, she kept me on my toes! At one point I pulled out a small couch I had purchased recently and Layla wanted to pull up a blanket and take a nap and she was serious!

I love this one. I love unique and different crops.


Yes I am hilarious actually. LOL.

So nice to meet you guys! :) I hope you love the pictures!

Degeest Family

What a beautiful family, let me tell 'ya! They were tons of fun and up for about anything. It has rained a TON here the last few day and it was SUPER muddy on their property, so we did a bunch of pictures where we wouldn't get super dirty, and after we were all done with a majority of pictures, we did some where it was okay to get a little muddy. A little muddy is an understatement, I could barely keep my flip flops on, they kept slipping off on the hills. lol. I had flashbacks of last year when I feel down the steps while shooting on two occasions, but I didn't want today to be another fall day so I made sure to watch where I was going this time--tee hee.

Like I said-what a great family!

Dad and the girls skipping rocks.

I know this isn't a face shot, but I love it anyway.


Adorable little smiler!
Mom and the girls...

This is the whole family all together. I know it's hard to see on this small version, but there's a neat bridge behind them. I promise it's there on the full size version.

Thanks guys, for letting me photograph your beautiful family!

I helped out a fellow photographer on Saturday with a wedding, I love second shooting so much, I can do what I love to do and be without the pressure of the wedding. It's a nice change. Don't get me wrong, I do love the pressure of being the primary shooter--it's a nice to get a small break :)

Here are just a few images I got..

Cutest Kid Contest Winners.. And Spears Family.

It's been awhile since I've blogged and I have a lot to blog and a ton of stuff to share! First of all, we have winners to the Forever Photography Cutest Kid Contest, the winners are: Barrett, Layla, and Abby Rose! Thank you to everyone who voted! You will see these little cuties very soon, All 3 kids are scheduled for pictures very soon!

Okay.. And now for the Spears Family.

I work with Julie at the hospital and we occasionally run into each other in the clinic which is fun! Always nice to see clients out and about and keep in touch with them. :)

We did the session at Lake Keomah and had a lot of fun, in fact, I think we saw a whale in the lake.. I know--you say whales aren't in Iowa, but the fish that jumped out of the water every time I wasn't looking, was real and was huge and made a big splash. It was crazy. It must have been huge. Seems like every time I looked away or put a camera up to my eye, it would splash.

Take a look-see at their pictures :)
