4 Sisters

These are the Lawfield Sisters.  They came in for a session Wednesday afternoon.  What a beautiful bunch of lovely young ladies (and twins . . . you two crack me up!) Here’s an image that will be hanging in the Lawfield home as a 40×30 canvas!

Something a bit different for a family portrait.

This was the 2nd of two family sessions that we shot on Saturday.  It was early afternoon and the sun was blaring high in the sky.  This would typically be a nightmare scenario for most photographers (I know it would have been a nightmare for me when I first started shooting).  But . . . if […]


The Schuette Family

Don and Donna and their kids, Hunter and Lauren (and their dog, Sport), came in for a family session this past weekend.  We had such a great time with them.  Super neat family.  Here are a few images from their session.    


The Church Family

We shot a session for the church family back at the beginning of October.  Good lookin’ bunch eh?


The Turley Family
