Josh & Abbe | Maternity

I just love these pictures! I miss having Abbe close by but I am so happy for her to have found such a good man in Josh. He's smitten with her and it's pretty adorable.
Their cute little guy has since made his appearance, but of course I couldn't be on top of things and post these when they were actually taken. ;-) I was so glad it worked out to do coffee and photos when they were back up visiting over Thanksgiving!



















Red doors seem to be a theme.
These belong to the church where they got married!










I like married people who make each other laugh.
Well, and make *me* laugh. ;-)

Powers Kids 2014 | Portraits

It's that time of year again! I shot the annual Powers kids family portraits and I'm pretty sure they try to top themselves every year. I've been on pins and needles to post these, but of course had to wait until the formal presentation to the parents happened. This year, they pulled together a family shoot with a bohemian theme, complete with Indian headdress. No kidding. I love them - they're brave enough to do the crazy things that everyone else can't bring themselves to try, and it always comes out fabulous. ;-)

We did the pictures one glowy evening at their new farm, which is a darlingly picturesque spot. Enjoy!



They really pull off the serious look!

... just not for long. :-)









One seriously beautiful group of sisters!







Individual pictures of everyone (except Levi, he only wanted that one headdress shot. LOL!)





This kid. He can do the model face like nobody's business.




Slightly obsessed with this light!



One last shot of their beautiful property - the sunset was magical.

Marlin & Colleen | Anniversary Session

Mr. & Mrs. Strand have been long-time family friends of ours, and they have always stood out to me as one of the most in-love couples I know. This past fall they celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, and as a gift, their kids got them a photo session. We spent an evening exploring the lovely nooks around their home area and looking for autumn color.
