Lindley Family

It goes without saying that family photos are usually mom’s idea, and the guys are usually (dragged) along for the ride. But it’s always a priority for me to make an environment where everyone can have a little fun, and maybe forget that they are at a photo session. And usually at the end of the session, someone tells me, “That wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be; it was actually kind of fun.” And I happily take the compliment!

Oh my goodness. This extended family session was FULL of great stuff. First of all, I photographed one of the couple’s wedding several years ago, back when I was still shooting film! We even re-enacted one of their wedding photos. Second, there are TEN kids in this extended family. Ten kids full of spunk and laughter and independence. There is also a lot of love in this family, which I think is so evident in the photos. And last, we did all the photos at their parents’ ranch, which is up for sale. So I spent some extra time documenting the place and all of its personal landmarks. Sometimes, if I have time, it’s fun for me to include photos of the locations where I do photo shoots, to give a sense of place to my client’s images. But this time it was extra important for me to capture the surroundings… so many years of memories were there, and I wanted to give this family a way to remember them.

I love taking photos of some of my closest friends. I always try to capture the goodness I see in my clients, but for my friends, it's even more personal. I want more than ever to show their inner strength and beauty. This is one of the reasons photography is such a blessing for me.

Did you know family photos make a great birthday gift for moms? Everyone is dressed up nice, which is a total mom thing (Dad's don't care about that), everyone is together, and everyone is happy! And then you have recorded proof that all those things actually happened, all at the same time! Thanks for letting me be a part of the birthday celebration, Walz family!

Haverfield Family

This was such a fun location. We were fortunate enough to have the right connections so we could use this very cool old farm for their photo shoot. And this family is so much fun... it's easy to see how much they enjoy each other. Especially the cousins. I hope these photos will remind them of many happy memories.
