Jill + Brent : Anniversary Session

Do you recognize the cute couple in these images? You should. Their engagement and wedding images were featured on the blog a year or two ago. Jill is one of my favorite clients for the reason that she is a great “cheerleader” of my business. If you ask her who to use for professional photography, I know she would always say my name. Gotta love that!
Also, it’s just so much fun for me to maintain a life-long relationship with my customers and I look forward to photographing their future together.
This session was mainly in place to add a few new images in their home and give as holiday gifts, but also to create Christmas Cards to mail to all their family and friends.
Here’s what the front of their card looked like. Isn’t it pretty?
It’s really a good idea to plan ahead when you want to do holiday cards/gifts.
We photographed this session in early October (and booked it about 6-8 weeks before to get her ideal time with the leaves changing color), which is just right for the end goal of holiday gifts and cards. It gives me plenty of time for proofing the session, scheduling the ordering appointment, designing the cards, and picking up the order in time to mail out the cards and frame & wrap the gifts.
Aren’t these two just so adorable and sweet together? I love that Brent is the kind of guy that is totally okay with all the pictures Jill likes to take of them, because having those images is such a treasure.







Paul and Linda : aka Dad and Mom : Family Portraits

Well, guess what?! Today is my Mom’s birthday! How fun is that?! I just had lunch with her and my dad to celebrate and I was happy to tell them that I finally finished proofing their portraits that I took earlier this fall.

They were sooo patient with me! I love them so much. You know the old saying about the shoemaker’s kids have holes in their shoes… well, the photographer’s families don’t have as many professional pictures as they should either!
I was happy when my dad asked if they could come down for a session because my mom and him have both been so good the last couple years about exercising and eating healthy. My mom especially has really transformed her body and lost quite a bit of weight! I’m so proud of you, MOM!
It’s only appropriate that we update their old portrait together from 4 years ago.
I just love how these images turned out. My mom has such a great smile and my dad is the biggest sweetheart ever. I can see that in these pictures. Love you both! Happy Birthday Mom!
