Toelke Family, 2014

Here’s another blast from the “past” – last year’s shoot with one of my favorite families, the Toelkes.  I first photographed them back in 2010, and I was excited to see how much the boys had changed since then.  As you can see, they are still as adorable as ever.  They are also a ton of fun – silly, rambunctious, and dirty the minute we stepped outside.  You can tell these brothers really enjoy each other, you know, most of the time!

Libsack Family

I’m playing some catch-up with blogging, so this is the first of a few posts that should have been added LAST year.  I’ve been a bit busy with my little one…at least that’s my excuse!  Plus I like to wait a bit to post photos from my fall mini sessions, lest I spoil any Christmas card surprises.  So, without further ado, here are some highlights from my photo shoot with the Libsack family from last October.  From what I remember it was a lovely, fall day, the kids were super fun, and they knew exactly what to do since their mom is a photographer too!

Jack & Dorothy ~ Anniversary Portraits

Congratulations Jack and Dorothy on 40 years of marriage!  They celebrated the occasion by renewing their wedding vows, and since the whole family was together in one place, it was also a great time for some updated family portraits.  It was a pleasure to meet this kind, friendly family, and I wish them many more happy years together!

Nick ~ Senior Photos

Nick’s family was one of my first clients when I started my photography business 6 years ago.  I have taken Christmas photos for them every year in exchange for his dad’s awesome tax accounting services.  Not only has it been fun seeing Nick and his sister grow up, but I always look forward to spending time with them.  This family is hilarious!  I had a great time with them as usual when we shot Nick’s senior photos.  I hope you have a great Senior year, Nick!  I can’t wait to see what you do next!
