Maurhoff 50th Anniversary

When Heidi, the daughter-in-law of this lovely couple contacted me I was so excited. Who doesn't love a surprise session for a 50th wedding anniversary that includes all of the children and grandchildren?  To top it off, this was the first time they have all been together at the same time!
Here's a photo of the happy couple.  It was supposed to be a session for the grandchildren and they were going to surprise the grandparents with the photos at Christmas.  The family decided to tell the grandparents so they could be in the photos.  I think it was a fantastic idea!

As you may know, I live in a very small town.  My grandparents grew up in the area and managed a local grocery store for several years.  It turns out that the Maurhoff's know my family very well.  It was so great to meet them and hear their stories.

The kids had so much fun playing in the water!  They were such a fun group to photograph!

Cotton Blossoms : The boys!

She makes hats, I take pictures.  It's a match made in heaven.  Her nephews are the most adorable boys ever! I jumped at the chance to be able to photograph them.

Erin: $19 Prom Dress

My daughter Erin loves formal dresses.  She always has.  When she was around eight she found a lovely green dress at a consignment shop.  The dress was about three sizes to big for her, but she didn't care. Every day when she came home from school she'd put on the dress with her princess crown and walk around in it.  It's been seven years and she still loves dresses.  We found this dress at a local retailer for a steal! So, I let her get it.  She has tried to wear it almost every day since. It's a perfect combination really.  She likes to play dress up and I like to take photos of her dressed up.

Benjamin: Newborn Session

It seems that all of my newborn sessions end up being put off until the baby is about a month old.  Luckily for me this little guy was still very cooperative and oh so cute!
