My Nephew.

Dreyson is 3. Where did the time go? He is the cutest 3 year old ever, the funniest personality, cutest smile. Love my cute Nephew!! He came alive at Union Station, he loves trains. So I chased him around for a half hour and got some goodies!

Find Drey.

These 3 pics tell a story. I would frame these if I were my Sis-in-law.

We caught some happy times after. Kyra’s little smile…

Brad and Erin’s Windy Formals

The storm came in right as we finished, although Erin’s hair is windblown… I think she looks freaking fabulous. Their wedding is in a few weeks, I cannot wait for it. Thanks for braving the storm and enduring the cold & wind!

Love this one!

Yowza! Ashley’s a Senior.

Meet one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen in real life, she really is this beautiful. Yes, her eyes really are that color, I had zero blemishes to re-touch… not fair I know. I have known Ashley for years, I love her personality, her laugh and those dimples are to die for. Thanks for having me do your senior pics Ash, I know you will do many great things in your life! Here are just some of my favorites…

One Deserving Family.

I received a call from my cute neighbor who told me about the father of this amazing family who has been courageously fighting cancer. I wanted to learn more about this family, so I went to their BLOG and read their amazing stories. They have been through so much; I couldn’t believe all they have really been through. I was so touched by their strength & positive attitude.

I couldn’t think of anyone who deserves a family session more than them.I feel so lucky to be able to photograph such an amazing family, and so grateful to God for putting the most incredible people in my path.

This Mom is so down- to- earth/ hilarious… I can tell she is just an AMAZING person. This Dad kept his smile going the entire time; he is such a strong person with a great attitude. I loved the connection with them and their children, I could just see it in their kids faces how much the love and adore their Mom & Dad.

Their session was so much fun. I loved capturing all the little details of this family; their 4 children are absolutely adorable. Get ready for a huge post of this truly remarkable family… remember to leave some comment love for them!

I loved his blushing face…


Because I feel so INSPIRED by this family… if you know a truly deserving family like this one, I will be giving a certain amount of family sessions away this year; including unlimited time & locations, all images on CD and a $100.00 print credit. To nominate a family (yours, or a family you know)… please send me an email to

Ashley- We live in Smithfield and my husband is Travis’ cousin. What an amazing family they are. We have dabbled a little in photography but WOW thanks so much for capturing the happy moments of this cute little family. My four year old prays nightly, “bless the Poll’s that they’ll do good on their mission.” It’s so cute we don’t correct her. A mission of faith and continuous trials they have been given. Great job we’ll be contacting you for photos.

Debbie - January 16, 2010 - 10:34 am

Oh…what a beautiful family! Their personalities shine through. (Love the way their outfits complement each other…and the colors!) A true gift, Ashley…God bless.
