Lemonade Stand Mini Sessions are Happening Again!

My first ever Lemonade Stand Mini Sessions were a huge success! They turned out even cuter than I imagined! And the best part, all of the littles who came were absolutely adorable and so easy-going. I was smiling the entire time I edited these! :)

I would LOVE to have these again before Summer is over… I know it just started, but I also know how fast it goes! To allow for more families to make it work, I’m actually going to schedule them on a weekend this time! Saturday, July 27th from 7:30-10:30am is the new date. Spots are first come first serve and I only have 6 available! Mini sessions are $150, last about 15 minutes and include your choice of 5 high-resolution photos with a print release!

Meeting in the Middle | {Hoover Family Sneak Peek}

First of all, the Hoover family is pretty awesome! Jessica got in touch with me a few weeks ago to set up a session for her family since they would all be together. A rarity now that the kids are all grown up! In fact, the baby of the family graduates high school today, he’s the reason for the special occasion. They literally came from both sides of the country - California to Florida and a couple places in-between to meet in the midwest and see their brother graduate. Isn’t that awesome?! I just love that!

I’ve always been kind of envious of big families with lots of siblings and they are exactly why! All the different personalities and relationships make for some entertaining times, always a shoulder to lean on and lots of love to go around. I’d be willing to bet mom and dad would say there’s never been a dull moment raising 5 kids! And now they’ve happily welcomed 4 more people into their family with open arms.

We fought the bugs and dodged the impending thunderstorms at the BIckelhaupt Arboretum in Clinton, IA and I’d say we won! However, this was a huge reminder to stock my mom van with an array of bug spray! Thankfully, the Hoover family is full of troopers who took it on like champs and didn’t let it get in the way of capturing some wonderful memories together. I really loved pulling each couple and the graduate aside for their own little mini session. It’s fun to get to know everyone and it helps me immensely to remember names when I have a few minutes to talk to everyone! They also had some fantastic ideas of their own and I’m glad we got to incorporate them into the session! All in all, it was a great family session, but even more importantly, I hope they truly enjoy every moment all being together again this weekend!

The Williams Family Spring Session Sneak Peek

I first met the Williams family a few years ago when they did a Fall family session with me. I always love to hear years later that they still love and display their photos! That’s what this job is all about after all - keeping memories alive! :)

I was really excited to capture some updated family photos for them, this time in the Spring. We waited for the gorgeous flowers to bloom at our local Arboretum and I’m so glad we got to the weekend we did because everything looked picture-perfect!

I had the hardest time narrowing down their photos for a sneak peek…so many great family memories captured!
