Graver Family - Hays Family Photographer
I love repeat clients. Going into a session already knowing someone makes everything seem so much more comfortable....like seeing your favorite Aunt Betty at Christmas. :-)
I met the Gravers last year, and was happy to hear from them again and to photograph their family. Just a few for a sneak peek!

Sweet Baby I - Kansas Baby Photographer
Babies are one of my favorite subjects to photograph....even when they don't sleep a wink! Miss I was not havin' it in the sleep department, so we were able to go with a more lifestyle approach. That's great though...and one of my favorite ways to photograph.
Soooo cute...look at all that hair!

Gettin' some love from mom
...and I couldn't resist, just one of the kitty that looked so sweet, but liked to play so rough :-) Ah well, he looks innocent enough!

Thanksgiving and a Black Friday Family Session!
Last week was, of course, Thanksgiving. I spent the day with family, and for the first time in a long time, took my camera. My youngest nephew was born just about 2 months ago, so I was hoping to get some pictures of him with his great-grandparents....and I did. Although these shots aren't the greatest, I don't care and I love them. :-)
With great-grandpa George
My older nephew who was helping me....then took a break and ate most of our hard work!
Great-grandpa George and Great-grandma Louise
On the day after Thanksgiving, when many were scouring the stores for crazy awesome Black Friday deals (okay, I'll admit...I went out for a bit!), I spent part of the afternoon shooting an extended family session. Just a few from it:
lovin' the rockstar hair!

The Jones Family - Hays Kansas Family Photographer
The Jones family is the type of family that I love to see together. Whenever I see them, I can just tell how close they are, and how much they love each other. I just love photographing these girls (and guy!)
Last year I took Miss J's baby pictures, and in the fall we did family pictures, so I was ready to see these cuties again!
Miss I...so cute, and so lovin' having her picture taken!
Man oh man, is that not a mischievous look?
I love the berets! très jolie!
I love this one of mom and her girls.
One of the whole family.
Thank you for choosing me to hang out with your family - it means a lot :-)

Earlier this week I spent some time hanging out at the beautiful FHSU campus with the Rohrs and family. In a time of iffy weather, it was really a gorgeous evening! Just a few for now......

the cutest baby ever....
...of course I'm partial, as he IS my newest nephew!
On Sunday I had a short amount of time to take a few shots of baby C. He was awake by the time we got started so I wasn't able to get my favorite sleepy shots, but he's still pretty darn cute! Don't you agree?

The Johnson Family - Kansas Family Photographer
Saturday I drove to the Johnson's home for a family session, thankful we had scheduled it for that Saturday instead of the 28 degree Saturday before! As I was getting my gear out to prepare for the session, C, the little girl, was hanging out with me. She seemed quite impressed by the quantity of cameras I had!
We shot quite a few pictures on their property, then headed out to a few others. As I was getting ready to leave, C and her mom were talking to me as I packed up. C said that she was going home with me, and we asked her why she thought that. She said, "You're taking all of us home with you, in your camera!"
I had never thought about it like that, but she is right.
Every time I photograph a child, a family, a couple, a wedding, I take home a part of them with me. That is what makes this so special for me - you have chosen me to be a part of your memories...and for this I thank all of you!
And now...on to the pictures! The Johnson Family sneak peek:
I just love this one.....Big Sis and Little Bro got their cool on for me. ;-)
The little man....oh what a cutie!
I love their display!
Nothing like a big pile of leaves!
We had trouble persuading them to leave the leaf pile....
Quite possibly my most favorite shot from the day.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your memories!

Sisters - Hays Kansas Portrait Photographer
As all you Hays-ish and beyond people know, last Saturday was fa-reeeee-zing. Literally freezing. As in 28˙. It was a cold one! But Ashley, Alyse, & Adriane were troopers and we got their sibling shoot done! I mean really, can you tell we were all shivering and the like?

Brad & Megan - Hays Kansas Engagement Photographer
Yesterday I had the privilege of spending some time with Megan and Brad as we shot their engagement session. I love being able to get to know my couples before their wedding, as it gives me a chance to observe each couples' particular dynamic...and it gives the guys a chance to get used to my demands while shooting! Brad was a trooper and a good sport, though, and I am looking forward to their wedding next year!!
Brad's family had this milo field, which luckily for us hadn't been harvested yet!
how do I get so lucky....all my couples are just fab!
Rocky the dog was so cute!! I love it when couples incorporate their animals into the pictures...cause hey, they're family too!
One of Brad's old trucks made a fun prop.
a bit of sunflare by the farm that used to belong to Brad's grandparents.
Megan and Brad, we are gonna have a great time at your wedding! Can't wait!
