Kristi and Abe - Young Love - Lowell, MA

I absolutely love this couple. They said they have "no good pictures together" - how is that even possible?! They are so adorable and obviously so in love. I had a fun time meeting up in a cemetery in Lowell for these beautiful fall shots. I've known Kristi for a long time now and she has grown up to be a beautiful young woman, inside and out. Its amazing to see her with such a great man, like Abe. They are fun, quirky, and silly - all things you should be when you're YOUNG and IN LOVE!

Gettin' a little artsy for these next two. 

I usually HATE when "the perfect shot" is blurry, but these are so fun and carefree, like this couple. I had to share them.

Atten Family "Down on the Farm" August 2013 - Cuba City, Wisconsin

Summer in Wisconsin is absolutely beautiful! The corn is high, the grass is green, the sky is blue, and the sunsets are to die for! There is a very relaxed and laid back feel as farmers bask in the glory of their hard work - watching it grow and hoping for rain! I grew up on a big farm in a small town. I had a the joy of being a "farm girl", although I always craved the big city, the farm was where we all belonged. My family has a long tradition of farming and so do many of our neighbors and friends. The Atten Family owns a gorgeous farm house and big farm down the road. I have known Chris and Becky for years and finally got to photograph them and their adorable children. I used Becky's camera so she could try her hand at editing them herself. This is her blog featuring my photos :)

Mark Seniors and Cassidy Family Photos - Chelmsford, MA

I had a great time taking pictures of the Cassidy family and also a few of Mark, who will graduate this May. I have known these boys for about 5 years and it's been fun to see them grow up into young men. They have a really fun sense of humor and each their own unique style and personality. ENJOY!!!
(Oh, and we shot all these in their backyard...the foliage is so awesome this time of year everywhere you go!)

Also a shout out to "Mom and Dad" who will be married 25 years in May 2014! A true testimony of love and commitment! Congratuations!

White Family Summer Fun - Lena, IL

I love this little family! Karen and I are cousins and grew up together. It is so much fun to see her family grow and I loved being able to capture them. Her children are just adorable, and so well behaved - unlike their father! :) We met up this August to take some fun family photos at a lake near Lena, IL.

"B" Family Portraits, Dubuque Arboretum, Dubuque, IA

I love traveling back to the midwest every summer to spend time with my family. I had the pleasure of doing some family pictures for my brother's great-looking family. I'm not biased - they are extremely handsome and adorable. Their children each celebrate their 4th and 2nd birthdays this summer, so we did some annual shots of the cuties. The arboretum was a perfect setting for this fun, natural, outdoor-loving family!
