The Cummard Family

K, I just adore this family.  You know when you meet someone and you just know you would be good friends?  That's Sara!  I just love this mama, you can tell by the way her kids treat one another that she is so loving and sweet to her kids.  Mom goals for sure.  And aren't her boys just the handsomest?!  Arranging marriages for sure!

Baby Ezra

There is nothing quite like witnessing siblings meeting their brand new, tiny, adorable, addition.  The love in the room was so thick you could cut it in half.  And if you are wondering, yes, of course I cried.  I always do when photographing these perfect, little, miracles.  He is straight from Heaven.

The Mickelsen Family

I was in a grumpy mood coming into this photoshoot.  There's something about having a head ache, and having all four of your kids scream at you in the car that can really just set my mood down a few notches.  Well, the Mickelsen kids really healed my sour mood.  They are so funny and full to the brim of personality.  I think I laughed more at their house in that one hour than I did all week.  Gentry runs her home in a way that you just don't want to leave her house.  Her home is full of love, comfort, good smells, and happy vibes.  These photos make me smile, and I think I'll return to their daughter's pirate face photo for a pick me up when I'm having a bad day.  So here's to funny families, and real life photos.

One day Zoe wrote her name all over every single toy she owned with a permanent marker.  This is a remnant of her art work.

Wrigley Family

The Wrigley party of three, soon to be four!  I loved photographing this family up in Albion Basin. The wild flowers were incredible, and their little girl was so cute.  I think we listened to the Moana sound track too many times to count.  I'll do anything to get your kiddos to smile!   Can't wait to meet their adorable little baby girl on the way.

Brown Family

The cute Brown Family.  We played ring around the rosie, and follow the leader.  We picked wild flowers, and looked for magical rainbow flowers.  We danced, we jumped on rocks, they did their family cheer and we played.   We had fun!  Hoping to make all family photoshoots as easy breezy and fun as this one.

The Zimmerman Family

Gosh I love this family.  The Zimmerman's are great friends of ours. I love images, but wishing these images could magically show off how delicious the food is in their house (Dani is an amazing cook), or that we could hear their kid's adorable voices.  Their kids are just adorable, and Dani and Colby are fantastic parents.  Some things they wanted to remember in their photoshoot, was reading to their kids, playing puzzles with their daughter, their son wandering around their house with a binky in in house and a blanket dragging behind him, and bath time.

The Peterson Family

_94A5723.jpg

I love this sweet family.  Cait is one of my best friend's and one of my hero's in life.  She balances life as a mom with four boys, while owning a business and dealing with the every day hardships of type 1 diabetes.  She and her husband are some of the most organized people I know!  They are solid people, and I'm grateful to know them! 

 

Monkey see, monkey do.  Love that little brother follows big brother's every move!

Hiding from me!  I love the perspective of this shot.  And that it looks like these two brothers are up to something naughty.

Before starting an in-home shoot, I will email my client a brief survey of what they'd like to be captured.  This momma wanted to capture the family prayer.  I died watching her #3 during the prayer.

Reverence doesn't last long with any kids!  Boys will be boys, a lot of wrestling in this house!

Cait's diabetes is huge part of her life.  Documenting real life is what this is all about!  Her kids were so funny about getting a finger prick and checking their sugars, too.  This lady is a warrior mom to fight with this disease every day!

In the end I have to tell you.  Cait and Andrew are some of the most organized, clean people I've ever met!  Their home reflects their beautiful style, and taste.  However, not all homes are this airy and beautiful, and I get that.  I don't want anyone to look at these photos and think, my home isn't as pretty as hers and therefore my photos will not be as pretty.  Boo. Lies to yourself!  Your home can be as messy or as clean as you like!  My home on the other hand would have a lot more dirty faces and ketchup stains.  Also, the light in my home is not as airy and light, and would shoot a bit more "moody," I love shadows just as much as I love crisp airy light!  I'm not trying to photograph the beauty of the home, but the beauty of the love that resides in it!  Have a happy day everyone!  Now go and love on your babies.
