Ellis Family | Extended Family Portraits

The hours leading up to the Ellis family session were nerve wracking. The forecast showed that there weren’t supposed to be storms during their session; however, as I drove to Kingsland, it started to rain. As I got closer, I kept praying to God that the rain would pass and I could shoot because I had no idea what we would do if we couldn’t.

Windhager Family Portraits | Extended Family Session

There were over 30 members of the Windhager family in attendance for the reunion. Honestly, I had no idea how it would go shooting so many people!

However, with so many people I went in knowing that I had to roll with whatever I was walking in to.

KatyAnn and Luke | Maternity for Baby Rand

For the maternity shoot, KatyAnn and Luke wanted something casual - for it to be less about her being pregnant and more about this is a moment in their love story. We walked around Mueller Lake and Aldrich street. I was worried KatyAnn wouldn't be up for it; she was 34 weeks when she had her session. She was a trooper, though and was completely ok with walking around so much! We decided that it would be fun for them to grab ice cream at Lick for a few shots. I love her that part of the shoot was so true to them! They got to act like the goofballs they are and have a little bit of fun!

Los Angeles, California

When I first booked my tickets, I thought being in LA for three days would be enough of a little trip. I only had a few days available, and I’ve been wanting to visit my sister and see her LA life (also give the approval of her new tribe - that’s a big sister’s job, after all). However, when I added up the hours I was actually in LA, it was only 48 hours. We sure did a lot in those 48 hours, though.
