I’m a little…or a lot…obsessed with this family.  They have had quite the life changes since I’ve known them…but I’m so excited to meet the newest member of their gang.

David & Kellie’s love is infectious.  It makes me want to go run and hug my husband.

Ok ok ok…folks…check it out.  This might be the happiest baby I’ve ever encountered.  AND…he must not think I’m pure evil…because this might be the only session..or at least its been so long I can’t even remember…that I’ve had a baby not cry and frown at me for 98% of the session.  I could photograph this kid all day everyday!

I LOVE these three!

Nate, Kirsten, and little Miss Amelia are one of my favorite repeat offenders.  From engagement, to wedding, to parenthood….I can’t get enough of watching this family grow!  It’s insane to think Amelia’s already 4 years old!

Ok…I’ve known and photographed Tyler for over a decade, and it’s no secret he’s a terrific guy.  So after he introduced me to Kenna and I got to take some pics of them….later on I texted him and said “Dude…your GF is hot!  Well done friend.”  To which he texted back “Thank you.  She is now my fiance.”  I’m pretty sure I squealed out loud.  So happy for Tyler…and for Kenna….she’s got a good one, fo sho!

Congrats Tyler & Kenna!

This is probably 3 sessions all wrapped up in one:

Deathe + Tuckness + Gaultney

…so image overload…and I LOVE THEM ALL…made it super hard to narrow it down for the blog.

Let’s start off with a little momentum shot…what goes up, must come down….and with a big smile!

I like to imagine Sawyer is getting an early start on his politician hands.  I’d vote for him.

A little Nostalgic…takes me back to the first time I watch “A League of their Own” (which is such a good classic movie).  Check out the fantastic softball team from Lawrence:  ADRENALINE

This team is exactly what you should think about when you think about the word TEAM.  They are a perfect example of good sportsmanship, team effort, and group encouragement.  These girls don’t know it…or at least don’t fully realize it right now…but they are a part of something so extraordinary.  Being a part of a team where there’s the support and guidance, the kind I witnessed at this softball game…is something we should all be so fortunate to experience in our life at some point.  For these girls…I’d bet money they are going to be lifelong friends and support systems.  It’s truly beautiful.

And the parents…they are like the base of the support system.  Parental greatness.
