Jameson {4 months}

Well the reality is that my sweet little nephew Jameson was actually nearly 5 months when we took these photos, but I'm in denial, because he's getting so big so fast!  He has changed so much since his newborn photos that his mommy, my sister-in-law Pam, asked that I snap a few more recent photos of him.  He is seriously the sweetest, happiest little dude!  As usual, I had a ton of fun with him.  Now slow down buddy!  (wink wink!)

Madison {high school senior}

Last week I shared a beautiful family I photographed.  Well along with that family session we did a senior session for the oldest daughter of the bunch, Madison, who just started her senior year of high school.  She was an awesome subject and we had a lot of fun - I love babies but I could get used to these older, cooperative models too!  Enjoy your photos Maddy, and best wishes for your senior year!

The Emily Family

A little over a month ago, I had the privilege of photographing this big, fun family.  We all had to tough out the hot July sun and stinky trash cans, but we made it through and came out of the event with some beautiful images.  It's clear that there is lots of love in this extended family bunch.  I've known Leslie, one of the three grown siblings in this family, since high school, we reconnected recently, and I have had the opportunity to photograph her 15 month old son, Luke, a couple of times this year before this particular day.  He's the sweetest little man, and little did any of us know that day that he was about to set out to fight a major battle.  Just a week after our time together he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which was surgically removed and discovered to be cancerous.  Next week, he starts chemo to work on any of those bugger cancer cells left behind.  As I share the photos of this big, supportive family behind him, I ask that all of you out there keep Luke and his family in your thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks and months as he fights this beast.  If you feel inclined or called to support in a more concrete way, you can go to the website set up for donations, and which also has a link to a page to follow for more information about his medical journey.

Go Luke!
