Sneak Peek: The Minkema’s {FAMILY}

Days like today, minus the 25 degree weather, I adore my job even more than usual! Meet the Minkema family, Debi, her three beautiful daughters, and her son, Matthew. Debi contacted me the other day, and I am so glad we were able to squeeze in their portraits before Matthew heads back to the East Coast on Monday. You see, Matthew is home on leave (he’s in the Army) and will be heading to Afghanistan soon. Talking with Debi, I connected with much that she said; the moving up of deployment dates, not wanting her son to head to war, and watching Matthew with his sisters, I though…I know all too well what this is like. Savoring each and every last moment before your brother jets off to the other side of the world, bravely, to defend our country.

Debi, your family was so sweet, warm and gorgeous! I had a blast hanging out with you guys. Matthew, thank you for your service to our country, and please come home soon and safe to your family!

Sneak Peek: The Aguilar’s {FAMILY}

I am excited to get some new pictures on the blog! Megan contacted me a while back about doing a family session for her mom as a Christmas gift. We weren’t able to get everyone together before Christmas, but what about the gift of taking your pictures and getting to see them ON Christmas!?

Megan, your family was a blast to take pictures of (and so cooperative!) I hope you guys are having a fun Christmas Eve, and have a Merry Christmas!

Giving is Awesome {WINNERS}

It is time for my favorite post of the year! I get to announce this year’s Giving is Awesome winners. Each year I am humbled by the stories that I read, of bravery and courage, determination and love.

This year the winner will receive a $1000 credit toward photography, and the nominating person will receive a $250 credit, PLUS (because I’m a big softie!) each runner-up will receive a complimentary Deluxe Mini Session.

This year’s Giving is Awesome winner is

(…….drum roll please…..)

MORGAN! A snippet of what her aunt wrote in her nomination e-mail.

“I want her to have an opportunity to SEE how beautiful she is. I want her senior pictures to show the world exactly who Morgan is – I want them to show the girl she is – the woman she is becoming – and I want them to show her how proud she should be of who she has made herself become.”

And because a post isn’t a post without a picture, here is a picture of one of last year’s winners!

I will be contacting all of the runners-up in the next few days! A HUGE thank-you to all who sent in stories for nomination!
