Cousins…These girls have my heart! They all have a bit of “Galeazzi” in them! They have big hearts and competitive spirits. They can be feisty but always beautiful, inside and out! With everyone’s busy schedule’s we for sure get their pictures updated, spend holiday’s together, support each other in sports, and a big bonus if we can do something fun in between all the craziness. 6th grade, 8th grade & 10th grade…slow. down. time…
I have had the pleasure of photographing this family for about 12 years now. It is so crazy how time flies. This family is pretty amazing! They have the kindest hearts, and they are some of the hardest working people I know. They have had portraits done with me enough that Ryan (dad) asked his wife two questions before their session: 1. Should I bring something to sit on? & 2. Am I going to have to take off my shoes? I laughed so hard at this but I also felt proud that he knows how I work and trusts me. He just wants to be prepared…even in the snow! I had you covered, Ryan! 😉 Monica always does an amazing job on the clothes. That is not easy but such a big part of loving your portraits. I guide you when choosing clothes, pose you to look your best and look for the best light! It really is fun, even in 20 degree weather! Nothing a little hot chocolate and hand warmers can’t fix. Thank you Okelberry family choosing me. I love working with you guys and I love watching your kids grow up. Which leads me to the baby of the family reaching the age of 8 to be baptized in your church. I can’t believe the baby is 8!! Glad we were able to capture his baptism portraits at the same time.
My sister! Growing up she was a pain in my ass and my best friend! I have always admired her and her qualities. She is fun!! She is a dork! She is talented at everything she does. She is beautiful inside and out and can be feisty as hell! She is simply amazing! She turns 40 this year and I can’t wait to celebrate her! This is her family and we had a blast playing in the snow. We laughed so hard and we froze a little. Like most people that haven’t made that call to book a session, my sister wasn’t super excited about being in the pictures. But she rallied and now has these amazing memories to enjoy for years to come! Of course she ended up having fun and LOVING the images and super thankful she was in them. I am so lucky because she cuts and colors my hair all year and I get to do her family portraits! Love you, sis!!
Oh little miss Mara…you were so excited to meet your mommy and daddy you came early. You were perfect in every way. You lived almost two hours so your mommy and daddy could feel your breath, and kiss your warm body. You showed them strength and love they had never witnessed before. You are loved…2/14/19, 4:12pm, 1 pound, 11″
aaaaahhhh…look at this beauty!! Just started in real estate for Trail 27 a real estate co. She has been a stay at home mom for a few years and has always been interested in real estate. Here kids are in school and self sufficient so she decided to dive into what she always wanted to. I do all the headshots for Trail 27 on their infamous brick wall. Love this team! They are all awesome!! Frances was nervous as most people are. She says she always blinks in photos, she was thinking a black t-shirt and she said she would try and wear makeup but it never usually ends well with her. I encouraged her to get her makeup done, wear some jewelry and just have fun!! That we did!! She left feeling like a star! That is how it should be!
