Weather Delays followed by Sunny Days!!!

WOW first snow in the first week of October! CRAZY!!! That of course caused postponing sessions, 3 to be exact! Now that I've finally gotten them done, along with some others its blog time! The weather let up so nice for these sessions! Its been a crazy Nebraska fall, with it being 70 degrees one day and 40 the next! I guess that's Nebraska for you! Anyways onto the sittings!

I started off October with an engagement session with my newest wedding couple, MaryJan & Scott. He had an amazing day for pictures and it was great to meet Scott! The two of them are so perfect together and you can just see the love! I can't wait for their February 2010 wedding! Now onto the images!

My next session was yet another one of my wedding couples, Lindsey & Brandon. They live a couple hours away from Columbus so it was great to finally meet them! Lindsey chose to do all their pictures outside since the weather was so amazing and we chose a lot of different locations! I am really looking forward to their wedding in June since it is another out of town wedding for me and I love photographing in new towns with new locations! Anyways, we had an AMAZING fall day and the colors were absolutely gorgeous for their session! Check out the images!

Session number three was the start of some seniors. Peter will be a 2009 graduate from Scotus. I had two hours to capture all of Peters great ideas and it was great hearing all about Peter and his future goals! Onto the images!

Onto senior number 2 of the week was Tyler. Tyler is actually from Lincoln, NE and is my first senior from that area! I absolutely LOVE Lincoln since I went to college there, and the photo locations are endless! We started on the UNL campus, and even got some shots at the Husker Stadium! We then headed over to the hay market, where we were swarmed by about 20 other photographers in the process. I learned a lot about how people down there work, and I guess the lack respect that some of the older photographers have for other people that are working. Once we got through all the swarms of people, we got some more amazing shots and I got to learn more about Tyler and his future goals. Anyways, onto Tyler's images!

Husker Stadium!

My last senior of the week was Amy. This session has been long coming thanks to many sessions having to be cancelled because of the weather, so it was great to finally get to meet Amy! She is another Scotus 2010 senior, and was a homecoming candidate the night before! We started in the studio, with the usual head shots, then some great ones in her homecoming dress! We headed outside and stayed at the gorgeous studio location that I am blessed to have! We got some gorgeous fall shots with the colors on the lake and the gorgeous trees and bushes around the area. Even the local ducks got in a few shots! It was great to meet Amy and her mom and sister! I hope to work with them again in the future! Here's Amy's images!

One of my favorite senior images EVER! Amy is so gorgeous!

Any my last session for the week (or two) was the Larsen Family. They were the lucky winners of one of ten free sittings from the Columbus Days Parade this summer. It was a little chilly, but the kids did great! We had family pictures and then did some of just the girls. They had so much fun feeding the ducks at the studio and that really gave me some great images! I am so glad to have such great clients and I love meeting new ones! And here's the images!

Weather is changing!

And that means fall is turning into winter very soon! Not excited about snow and freezing cold temperatures but I'll live! Last week was supposed to be one busy week, but unfortunately we got our first snow of the year!!! That tended to cancel 3 senior sessions, which have been rescheduled so look for those in upcoming blogs! Anyways, I did get to photograph one of my former brides, as well as great friend's baby. She is such a cutie!!! Anyways, onto the pictures!

Fall has Sprung!

And boy is it a busy fall! This week was crazy for me, especially working another full time job, but I had so many amazing sessions! Unfortunately the weather that we had this week threw off two senior sessions, and the flu has claimed another client so I wasn't as busy as I was supposed to be! Anyways, lets get to them!

First up, 2010 Senior Tyler from CHS. It was great getting to meet the family and Tyler of course. We did some great pictures with his car and a bunch outside with the fall colors. I hope you enjoy them Tyler and have a great senior year!

Next up is one of my "Watch Me Grow" babies again, Parker. I can't believe he is 9 months now! They grow so fast!!! It was a blast doing his session and he is finally getting use to me sitting there with a camera in his face and playing with all the toys during his session! We started with some Halloween ones in his dragon costume and he was such a trooper!!! Then we did a few more random ones with a chair to help brace him and he really enjoyed all the attention I think! Can't wait for his 1 Year session!

Next up was one of my future wedding couples, as well as my very good friends Melissa and Brent for their engagement session. I just LOVE working with such great friends, and such an amazing couple! We had a BLAST and the two of them had so much fun doing lots of funny and crazy pictures for their guest book! We got some amazing shots out at a friend's farm, and I honestly could have photographed the two of them for so much longer! The two of you are absolutly perfect together and I couldn't imagine you with anyone else! Congrats you two!

During Melissa & Brent's session, Melissa's family came out to the farm for their family picture session. I think they really enjoyed the amazing trees and fields that the place had to work with! So glad that I got to spend a day with their family! You were all great to work with! Enjoy your family pictures!

And last up for my busy Sunday was 2010 Senior from CHS. It was great working with repeat clients! I have been working with the Thompson's since I first started and they have supported me so much with their daughter's senior pictures as well as family pictures! It was great working with you and getting some awesome creative shots that I hope you'll really enjoy! Have a great senior year and good luck in your future endeavors!
