Labor Day picnic on the lake


My brother, Joseph, and I *this one photo credit to my mom*

We enjoyed a Labor Day picnic on the lake with our grandparents. We tubed, drove the boat (Liam and Joseph), swam in the lake, hot-tubbed, fished, and had a really great time. :)

Swing high, swing low | photoshoot | summer 2015

October 27, 2015


This is Annika Vera. A creative girl with a lively spirit. She enjoys spinning yarn, putting on performances with her cousins, drawing paper dolls, reading historical fiction, and building cushion forts with younger brothers.
This photoshoot was super fun. An overcast sky created the perfect lighting at the park. Near the beginning of the day, it rained a bit but thankfully cleared up enough for a quick hour at the park and for me to take out the camera and snap a couple photos. Annika wanted to try some cartwheels and I was surprised at some of the pictures. I had thought they would be blurry, but they actually came out nicely. Annika and I spent the last ten minutes seeing who could do the best cartwheel. Whee!

Cruise Night | summer 2015

October 22, 2015


We recently went to a Cruise Night (some volunteers bring their old cars for people to look at) at an ice cream place near our house. There we so many beautiful cars! My personal favorite was a violet one which unfortunately left before I got a chance to take a picture of it. There was also a cool band playing some old-timer songs.

Sydney Grace | portraits | summer 2015

October 19, 2015


Hi everyone! This lovely girl is Sydney Grace. She humored Sarah and I for this double-shooter shoot by coming outside a half hour before she had to get into the car and drive back home after cousin weekend. At the hight of the morning, the sun was bright thus the lighting in these pictures isn't great.
Sydney is a fantastic cousin with a bubbly personality. She enjoys reading fantasy novels, running, rock climbing, playing outside with her twin, Maegan, and leaning new things.
