Tran Family | Iowa City Iowa Family Photographer

Many of you might not know that awhile ago I was a preschool teacher and I got to have this handsome little man in my preschool class. He has always been such a joy and an amazing little boy so it Awesome to see him as he is growing up! Also I knew Quan his dad from High School. So seeing them all and having fun photographing them was just a total treat!

I mean how adorable is this family? It was a bit chilly and windy but we had fun throwing leaves and laughing. This family is full of love for one another and I was so happy to capture that. I cannot wait to see them again! 🙂

Apple Orchard Mini Sessions | Iowa City Iowa Photographer

This year I decided to keep mini sessions very simple. Usually I have some elaborate setups for my minis but this year I really want the locations to speak for themselves and have the focus be the most important thing, my families! Family is so incredibly important to me and it is important to my clients as well. That is why I want that to be the feature of this work. I want to help my families share their stories and showcase the love in their family.

Here are just a few of my favorites from my Apple Orchard Mini Sessions. Enjoy! xoxo

The Doern Kiddos | Iowa City Iowa Child Photographer

I went to high school with Kelli and she married Chris Doern who was also in our class. I personally think it’s super romantic when friends from High School get married 🙂 Her and Chris and her two Adorable kiddos live in Virginia, so when Kelli messaged me they would be back and she wanted me to take some photos of the kids I was SO excited. They are the sweetest little ones, it was a breeze! It was super funny at the end of the session sister literally was done and passed out in mom’s arms. Too cute!! Can’t wait to see you guys again!

Enjoy! xoxo

Jacob | Iowa City Iowa Child Photographer

Meet Jacob! Isn’t he seriously the cutest?! His dad Tyler and I have known each other for like 20 some years and it was SO wonderful to see him and meet his beautiful family. My little Owen came along with me on this session and made Jacob giggle with his ninja turtle toys. And let me tell you Tyler is the BEST dad to have along on photo shoots, he would do just about anything to make his little love laugh, I might have to see about hiring him to come along to more of my sessions 😉 I also brought along my little red wagon that was Jacob’s favorite thing, it was hard to keep him out of it haha! Can’t wait to see you guys again!!!

Here are just some of my favorites from our session, Enjoy! xoxo
