A snowflake is one of God’s most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together! -anonomous

So… I’m not the biggest fan of winter, but there are some aspects of the season that aren’t too terrible. Winter has become a season of rest for me, so, I foresee baking, quilting, sewing, reading, movies, coffee shops, naps, taxes, and planning for the next season. For now I’ve found enjoyment in my new lens which I cannot wait to use in this next year’s sessions. Here are some images I’ve been enjoying the past week since our first snow. I was doing a bit of reading on snowflakes and stumbled upon Wilson Bentley. While I enjoy the intricate designs of snowflakes, I’ve decided that I do not want to make my profession a snowflake photographer. Brrr!




This family portrait session took place on the Yellow River Road property. The warm light in this session was just wonderful! It reminded me a bit of Rembrandt’s colors. The Banks family is one family I loved working with. They just happen to be my family but I really do think they are kind, down to earth people. I noticed a while ago that their children are the most well behaved kids ever. I’m told that not only are they good kids, but they’re really smart. Natalie, a natural around the camera, loves to read and is a bit shy, like me! Noah has always been in high ability classes, loves sports, and playing guitar with his dad. Whether its grocery shopping or traveling, the family loves to do things together. They even agreed to have a picnic with my mini homemade apple pies. I hope they’ll love these images as much as I do! Enjoy!

P.S. Keep an eye out for another blog post on a special little project we worked on with this family.
