Ahhh, my last session in 2011. I love that it wrapped up with the Sarrail’s- they are like family to me! Michelle and I have been dear friends since the day I was born, were in each others weddings and just due to timing… had both of our kids around the same time. It’s amazing to see our children playing together, remembering what it was like when we were running around playing Barbies, riding bikes and spying on the boys. I also love it that they have a standing November family shoot when they come up from California each year!

What else do you do in the midst of packing for a trip to Mexico… get your family photos done of course! Had fun with the Gatchell’s and their darling, blonde boys down in the Pearl.

The coldest weekend that we had since last winter, I had three family sessions and this was one. AGAIN, the kids were amazing!! They were such good sports and totally understood that the sooner we get the shots we need, the faster we can all get in our cars. They were all over it! To go along with a great family, we had such beautiful light and got to take advantage of the last of the leaves. Beautiful!

I was really excited to photograph the Kopetz family (however I was not as excited about how cold it was.  The kids were amazing and didn’t complain that our fingers and noses were going to fall off!! Thanks guys for a great session!

These two were cutest brother’s! They giggled and laughed with each other the entire time. I didn’t have to say anything goofy… they just found each other hilarious! Outside of them being too cute… look at all of that fall color we had. Amazing. Thanks Simshauser’s, had such a fun time with you!!

My session with the Inman family was so much fun! Great location, beautiful weather and most important a fabulous family! If it wasn’t so cold out I could have spent the whole day with them!

I met the darling DuVal family down in the Pearl for their family session. Little Corbin was such a cutie with his red hair and big brown eyes. He loved all of the leaves on the ground, running around and trying to get away from us. Then, as a typical toddler, he decided that it was time to wrap up the shoot and head home for a nap! Can’t blame him :)

It was a pleasure to meet the May family and their darling little girl. They had me out to their home which was a good idea because it was really cold and 9 month olds just don’t have as much fun being cold! She was all smiles, especially when daddy started to break out all of her fav toys. Thanks May family for a fun session!

It was really nice to meet up with the Moleski’s. I hadn’t see Julie since I had worked with her in the corporate world and we were both pregnant with our first babies at the same time. Their boys were so much fun and were SO darling together, they just couldn’t get enough of one another!
