Mother-Son Session; Children's Photography

This was such a fun session, that I had to get it up on the blog. Mommy did this photo session with her adorable boys this past spring as a special gift for their Daddy on Father's Day.

Pirates of Lewis & Clark Lake, Yankton, South Dakota; Children's Photographer

I love Lewis & Clark Lake and I have so many great memories spending time camping here since I was a little girl. Luckily my grandchildren live close by and can enjoy spending time here too. These are photos of my oldest two grandsons; Noah and Griffin, as we spent part of an afternoon playing "pirate" and hopefully making great memories that will last them a life time!

Vermillion South Dakota Family Photographer; Tim, Ellie & Kess at the University of South Dakota

A stroll about the grounds of USD was the perfect backdrop for this adorable family, especially since Tim is a faculty member here. Glad this family has made Vermillion their home, what a wonderful addition to the University as well as the community!

Leah's Newborn Session

Here is precious little Leah.....can you believe all that blond hair! Here she is tucked in between Mom and Dad's boots.....waiting for the time when she can wear her own boots!

Love that smile!

Leah is trying to figure out why this big camera is in her face :)

Leah looks comfortable in the saddle already.

Leah and I have a special bond as we share the same birthday! Leah was born December 18, 2015.

Southeastern South Dakota Family Photographer; Jim and Iris started all of this!

This was an amazing family to work with! They all got up and drove to Lewis and Clark Lake from various distances for an 8:00 family session so that we could catch the best light of the day. And everyone was happy! I have to admit that I was a little nervous about this shoot just because of the large group and number of small children, but it turned out to be one of my favorite sessions of 2015. You are an amazing have a beautiful family Jim and Iris, give yourselves a pat on the back! Here are a few images from the morning.

Jim and Iris have 5 beautiful daughters!

Southeastern South Dakota Newborn Photographer; Elly Ray's Newborn Session!

Chelsa is a Mommy! And wow, I am feeling old because I remember when Chelsa was this size! My friend, Diane (Chelsa's Mom) had our babies (we both had 2 girls) within a few months of each other and now history has repeated itself and our daughters (Christe, Chelsa, Ashley, and Emily) are having babies within a few months of each other.

So what a privilege it was to take newborn photos for Chelsa and Andy of their precious little girl; Ella Ray! She has tons of black hair, just like her Aunt Christe did when she was born :)

Ella makes a super cute little reindeer. And wow, what a super content baby! The only problem with her session was that she made my job look a bit too easy.

You can see how much love there is here, Andy chrishes his girls.
