What Are You Thankful For?

Berni and Graeme’s sons, Liam and Stewart, are just awesome, and we had a LOT of laughs during the session! What a gorgeous shoot! The murals here made for stunning backdrops for the session.

Merritt Family

Meet the Sandstead family. I could not get enough of these four! They were so sweet, and little Jordan (age 2), was so full of energy! I went to middle school and high school with Matt, and was so excited to meet his wife, Christina. She is so sweet and just beautiful, inside and out. […]

Sandstead Family

“And above all else…LOVE.” Meet the Martinek family. Eight kids all together and they are so well behaved.
