Kyla - JHS '09!

Holy crap, I babysat this girl! It was really weird when her mom called me to take her senior photos. So - it was great seeing them again :) She's really grown up - I wouldn't have recognized her. She requested to have her session at her school, so I got to spend some time at my old high school. Here are a few from the session:

check out her awesome eyelashes!

on the bleachers in 'the pit' - that's what we call our football stadium :)

showing some school spirit!

hey - I know those steps! wow they really bring me back :)

she's in choir, so we took some pics on the stage in the auditorium

We also went to her grandparents' farm for some more nostalgic photos, like in this amazing chicken house! I LOOOOVE it! If you look closely you can see their neighbor's cows :) And I think Kyla looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar here.

this one's my favorite - on the swing on her grandparents' porch. it was her idea, so it'll no doubt bring back lots of memories whenever she looks at it :)

Thanks Kyla! Have a great year!


Congrats to Rene & Scott!!

Rene & Scott's wedding took place on a sunny day at the Botanical Gardens. Everything went off without a hitch, and the rain stayed away. We also lucked out on their engagement session back in July. Here are a few of their big day:

I love when flower girls get to hold a ball of flowers! So cute!

The kids were so cute and sooo good! And look - the ring bearer is wearing tiny Chucks! I love them!

The massive colorful bouquet was made by Rachel, and Rene couldn't have been happier :)

It was a little breezy that afternoon. . . .


They were able to catch about 30 seconds to themselves after the ceremony

The day wouldn't be complete without free Ted Drewes :)

This is my favorite shot of the day. I love the texture!

Thanks guys! Congratulations!

What a wedding! Kristen and Josh are so fun, and Kristen is gorgeous! I had a really hard time narrowing down the photos, so I'm gonna split these over 2 posts. First up, we have Kristen getting ready and all of the fun before the ceremony. Here are my [many] favorites:

she smiled like this all day :)

her hair was simple and beautiful. I love hair jewelry!
