It is November again and here in Iowa that means cold. Although this past Saturday it was pretty close to 70 degrees outside so I really can't complain (that is not normal for Iowa, this year has been odd). This morning however it was not even close to 70 outside closer to 20 something - that's not very technical I know but I am not a weather person. On Saturday I sat outside with capris and a t shirt, today however I had to motivate myself to bundle up. By bundle up I mean hat, gloves, the whole nine yards. I think it was worth it though because I got to capture some pretty images of the frost still on the ground. All these photographs were taken in my front yard, so I didn't have to go far, my hands were happy when I did come in though.

I love the color of this last one. Hopefully when we get our first snow I will be motivated enough to get a few images to share on the blog. Check back in a few weeks!

Meet the Smiths

Well, this is what I have been up to lately...
I had a fun afternoon with this family, how could I not when all 10 of them were willing to jump in the air at their session? 
Thanks for letting me get to know your family a little bit better!
More photos to come, but for now enjoy this preview.

Barb, you are stunning!

Monica's Save the Date's

Save the date's are a fun way to let people know that 

Here is a design that I edited & designed for my sister in law, Gygy.
Her sister, Monica, is from Washington & is getting married next year. 
Monica had a friend do the photography & she did a really nice job!

Here is the design that I came up with...

Monica did a great job of personalizing her session, I love that she made the sign with her date to use as a prop in her photographs, she also saw an image like the one with the hands making the shape of a heart & wanted a photograph like it. Monica also knew that she liked the vintage coloring, so we incorporated that.

If you are a bride, decide what style you like & want to show in your engagement session. There are so many directions that you can go, so try to make it personal & YOU! Add little touches that mean something to you & your fiance. Then you can look back at that special time in your life for years to come!

Miss Payton

Here is a little teaser of what is yet to come on the blog for Payton's Senior Session.
Payton this image is ridiculous! Let me tell you, your model face ROCKS! When I was going through your images for the first time this one really stood out. This is my favorite image from your session, I like it so much that I couldn't decide if it is better in color or black & white. Let me know what you think!

Here is a session I did recently over in Elma IA.
Grandma had gotten matching outfits for these 3 cousins & wanted a few photos taken. Sadly, it was an icky  rainy day. We decided to make the best of it though & play inside.

I hope you like your images, thank you for letting me spend some time getting to know the kids!

Here is your slid show!
