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.
