Sweet Sisters

Last weekend was a busy one. I had these cute little darlings on Saturday and then I had 4 I Heart Dad sessions on Sunday. Not to mention the senior session the Thursday before. Makes me a little slower on the editing process but I like to take my time on each picture and make them perfect to the family. So be it :) What REALLY excites me is that come tomorrow afternoon, I am off work until the 14th! woohoo! So I'll be able to get completely caught up until I have my next session on the 10th. My entire family is heading for vacation and I couldn't be more excited. Mountains, family, relaxation, peacefulness, oh who am I kidding, there's going to be about 30 of us in a cabin! But it will still be fun ;) Much needed let me tell ya :)

Mommy worried about how the little one would do with the pictures but as you can tell she did wonderful! Smiley, laughing, just absolutely beautiful. It was so cute! Even impressed mom I think! ;)

I had purchased a set of bigger angel wings for the older kiddos and she was the first one to try them out. She loved them and she looked great wearing them. This girls a natural I'm telling ya.
Even the little cutie got a pair of angel wings. She wasn't AS excited about the idea, but she still looked awfully precious ;)
There's that smile that had mama smiling just as big :)
This is what love looks like.

This picture just cracked me up so much I had to include it. If only her sister had a clue what was about to happen....haha!
Hope you enjoyed! Leave a comment if you'd like!

Seniors - underway!

You may have seen this chic before, and you are right, you aren't just seeing things. I did her senior invitations for her open house about a month ago. This girl that I like to refer to as Ms. Peronality, home schooled and found out she was able to graduate early. How awesome is that? I believe that's every high schoolers dream! haha! So as soon as they found out she could graduate THIS year, they called me up and I got her on the schedule.

I'm only going to put a few of her pictures up here, but I think we were able to get several pictures for them to choose from. Her mom kept telling me that I was killing her because I'd post yet another good picture of her daughter. Well look at her daughter, how could I not? Seriously! :)

So I hope you enjoy this girl. She, too, gave me free reign to be as creative as I wanted and play around with their pictures because that's what they wanted. I think I might enjoy these senior sessions :) You want them to have a little bit more personality than other sessions so I think me and Senior sessions may end up pretty good friends. lol. I believe my next one is a handsome young man who could honestly pass for a model. Yeah, I can't wait to get behind the camera on that one either!

Well enjoy! (For the record, I believe the picture at the top actually was my favorite. Hard to choose, but it was so random, yet so cool looking.

Congrats on the graduation girl, be proud!!

Team Dietsch

Four Boys. Yes, FOUR boys! They gave me a run for my money let me tell ya! No, really it honestly wasn't that bad :) The oldest stood there and smiled like he was asked and the youngest would sit there and gilly and look cute. It was the middle two that would say COME AND GET ME!!!!! hahaha! It was fun trying to run around and try and get'em. I got my workout in for the day, now I know why mama looks so good! She keeps busy I'm sure!

See what I mean? :) ha!
Daddy is a police officer so we wanted to get a nice family picture of everyone in their blues

Then onto the outdoors pictures - so fun!

Even mommy gets in and does some bow hunting with'em! Very impressive stuff! You should have seen all the HUGE antlers this family had! Wow!

Birthday Boy!

Today (Okay yesterday, I am up way too late for my own good) this little man turned a year old. After talking with mommy, we had come up with a few ideas we wanted to try with this little guy. We wanted to incorporate soccer into a few pictures, hit little suit into some pictures, daddy's truck in someway and the fishbowl picture. Easy enough! And boy did this boy has the CUTEST smile. Dimples people, DIMPLES! On a 1 year old, I will take that any way! He was SO adorable and he did so good! You could really tell he loved his mommy because of the smiles you see in these pictures. Pure love.

I woke up with this idea in my head. I REALLY wanted to try it. I didn't know if it would end up being a flop but mommy was all for it. She kind of gave me free rain to do whatever I wanted and boy do I enjoy those sessions let me tell ya. This little guy had SO MUCH FUN "driving" his daddy's truck! Can you tell?
At the beginning of the session, mommy told me that this little man had just started taking steps. She said he doesn't decent standing on his own, and what do you know we captured it on camera! I was so excited and you could tell that he thought he was pretty big stuff himself. You better believe that I went straight home and tried putting something in front of my daughter to see if she would stand there and hold it like he was holding onto this weed. Worked for a little while I might add ;)See what I mean?!? Those Dimples!!
Great-Grandma was in town this weekend and I believe she only comes to the United States a couple times a year. I had suggested since she was in town to try and get a few pictures since, well that's what pictures are all about, capturing love on film (digital at least ;)). So she was able t get int oa few shots and daddy got in on them as well. As you can tell, the text is in spanish. It reads: "No Matter the Distance, I will always love you." So so true, especially in this situation. No matter the distance, great grandma will always love her precious little great grandbaby. Millions of miles couldn't take that way.

Thank you Torres family for allowing me to capture your awesome one year old and I look forward to doing your family pictures this fall!

Six Month Sweetie

Trying to get caught up but this was a super crazy weekend. Today we celebrated Mothers Day, yesterday I had two sessions and then this session took place on Friday. Friday was so windy it was unbelievable, but we did every single picture outside. This little girl was a trooper let me tell you! Such a happy little girl, especially once she got a little food in her belly! Her eyes were to die for too, so innocent and sweet. Enjoy :)

Mommy wanted to try the angel wings out and she loved them! woohoo!!

Sweet little angel

This past weekend I was able to take pictures of my friends little girl who will be turning a year old in just a little while. Forcast for Saturday was something like 175% chance of rain (ok so I'm overexaggerating) and everyone kept telling me it was going to pour and we'd have to do everything inside. Boy did it feel good to say told ya so :) It was absolutely perfect weather. Cloudly, sun wasn't out, not a drop of rain to be seen. Plus the birthday girl was in great spirits so we were able to get a lot of personality in her pictures.

I had purchased a pair of feathered angel wings and I had been waiting for the right time to try them out. I took them over to this family's house on Thursday to let mom and dad see how little miss would do with them and they said she LOVED wearing them. Can I get any luckier? She did amazing with these little wings on her back, she's just so cute. I can't help by smile every time I see these pictures.

On dad's side of the family, they are watermelon farmers so it was only appropriate to get some pictures with a watermelon dress! The horse in the background is just icing on the cake because mommy loves horses so this picture is the best of both worlds!
This one is one of mommy and daddy's favorites. Such a big girl.

This is something that I am offering to all 1 year sessions. The goldfish session is so much fun and to take the fishbowl away from these kiddos is so painful because they just love getting wet and splashing. Makes for some good smiles too I might add. Again, she did absolutely wonderful.

Just for laughs!
Again, thank you Cornelius family for blessing me with this experience. Your daughter is so awesome and I can't wait to see what kind of fun she and Sammi will get into along the way. I am seeing a couple of good buddies coming out of this relationship. Thank you also for letting me experiment and try new things with your little one because by doing that, I think you ended up with some great memories that are going to last a lifetime and will make you smile every time you think about them ;) I know they will me. Thanks again and I can't wait for the family session. I'm thinking mommy is wanting daddy to try out these angel wings next? Not sure, but rumor has it...:) hehe, thank you!
