I was so excited to hear the news about this little guy. You see, this couple had the most epic rainy day wedding ever last spring. It poured all day and their wedding and reception took place in a big white tent on newly laid sod. There was stress and a whole lot of puddles but these guys were cool and calm. They made a great team and had fun throughout the whole day. I know they will make a great parent team too. With smiles on their faces they are going to rock this parent thing. Congratulations you two! He's one sweet little boy!

You know what's fun about this family! At the end of a session they get huge lollipops, and I'm not talking about dumdums. :) I 100% love and support it! I even get excited to see what kind of lollipops they are going to be! Another great thing about this family is that the next time I see them there are going to be 5 of them! Yep! Come February, they will be a party of 5! I can't wait, and I'm sure they can't either. Congratulations!

I can't help to think how great of friends these two will be when they get big! It was a cold morning but they came bundled up pushing their strollers, which were complete with their favorite babies. How fun is that!  They had the best smiles and couldn't have been better sports!

What a perfect fall day! The weather was perfect and so were the leaves! We played with sticks and had a little fun. Thanks so much for being flexible so we didn't have to freeze! 😊 Who doesn't love tromping around in a forest on a beautiful day!?!

Emmett. by Stephanie Bannon

Ah man, these guys are cuties! 18 months is one of my favorite ages. There is so much personality and so much independence present in this age. I'm pretty sure Emmett couldn't have been more proud of himself. He threw rocks like a champ, read books and ran as fast as his little legs could carry him. Well done little man. You are killing this 18 month thing. :)

These guys are always so much fun to hang out with! For their session, we braved a new location and it turned out perfect. Everyone had a blast! There was water, rocks, sand and a really mean goose. . .that's pretty exciting right?!?! Really. It couldn't have been more fun. You guys were super!

Oh. My. Goodness. Could this little guy be any more cute!?! He is 8 months old and as sweet as they come. Mom brought along a hat, which I love, and we were able to keep it on just long enough to get a few pictures in it, which happen to be my favorite. Super idea! You guys got a sweet one!

Its been a while since I've seen these guys. They've added a new member to their family and the two oldest have turned into little ladies. These three were full of energy and about as silly as they come. They played, picked up a stick or two and hopefully had a little fun. ;) There's nothing better then being a carefree kid. Thanks for the fun afternoon you guys were great!

Holy moly these guys rocked it! For real. Usually when I do sessions with this family the heat is crazy, the humidity is stiffeling or the rain clouds are lingering. AND we've done a lot of sessions. :) This time the weather was perfect and the boys were on their A game. Job well done!

If there was ever a smile that could make you melt, this girl's got it. Her eyes and smile are about the sweetest thing around. Her brother Andrew brought along his ball and glove and told me all his T-Ball stories. These two couldn't be more or a delight!

This post I'm going to let speak for itself. I have no words for it, except for its a beauty in so many ways.

Audrey. by Stephanie Bannon

These guys have got to be one of my favorite families. The first time I met these guys Luke (the oldest) was just turning one. He was snotty and it was freezing but we were determined to get one year pictures. It has been so fun to watch their family grow and I'm honored they have let me have a little peek into their lives. Happy 6 month birthday to Miss Audrey! You are about as sweet as they come!

Talk about a perfect April day! These guys couldn't have had a prettier day. The kids had a blast running around and we had a great time watching them. There was even a little playground time at the end!

John+Lisa+Jake. by Stephanie Bannon

Holy moly this little guy was a sweetie. I love 6 month olds! They are totally in love with their parents and they aren't mobile yet, which is the perfect combination for me. I'm also a sucker for boys in hats. Right!?!? How cute is he!?!?

Matt+Kristen+Kate+Ann. by Stephanie Bannon

What cuties! These two could not have been more fun. Kate was a little ball of energy and we had the best conversations, like always. She's a great big sister and knows just the right sounds to make her sister smile. . .and everyone else too :)  Ann was a trooper and endured the wind and chilly temps. She couldn't have done better.
