Just Grandma and Me {Donna + Lillian}

I got to meet sweet Lillian last Fall at a photo shoot with her mom and dad. Lucky for me, her Grandma Donna contacted me shortly after to set up her own session with me!

Donna recently moved to Iowa from the western side of the country to be closer to her sweet granddaughter and of course her son and daughter in law too. She was able to bring work with her and set up an office in her beautiful new home. It was important for Donna to capture this stage of life and I took my job as her storyteller seriously. We photographed some of the things that make her who she is. Her craftiness, kitchen skills, love of reading, Christianity and the love she has for Lillian.

I loved walking into her world for an hour on a sunny Winter afternoon to get to know her and her family a bit better and photograph what I hope will be meaningful images they always hold dear. I’m already looking forward to working with them again someday!

Prins Family Sneak Peek

After weeks of nothing but rain, the sun decided to show up so we could take this family’s indoor session outside! It was fun getting some shots while they huddled up cozy on the couch, but nothing beats natural outdoor light. It was so great meeting the Prins family and seeing the love they all have for each other. And I’m going to have to bring fruit snacks to every shoot from now on because they saved the day for the littlest member of the family! It was a great time and I can’t wait to share their photos with them.

Retirement Surprise Shoot

Becky contacted me to set up a surprise photo shoot for her mom, as part of a retirement celebration! The photo shoot was specifically for grandma and her 4 handsome grandsons. How sweet right?! These boys were seriously the most kind and respectful teenagers I've met...maybe ever. It was such a pleasure capturing the Marlowe family and I truly hope retirement has been nothing but a blessing!
