Thomas and Jamie’s Wedding

On Saturday, July 11th, I got the fun of photographing Thomas and Jamie’s beautiful, fun, wet, and relaxed wedding and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more! While I didn’t know anyone in this family when I came –except for the mother of the groom — Lynn whom I work with at Hawley Troxell — I didn’t […]

Now that’s my kind of wedding (minus the rain) — outdoors, casual, country flavor. The cake looks good, too. Beautiful job as always, Mary.

Thanks Vince, it was a nice wedding. I was a little perplexed on when and where to do some family photos with all the wetness, but everyone was so relaxed and easy-going about it all. Nice people for sure.

Mary, great photos, great blog, great day all in all! Thanks for capturing it so well.

Thank you Lynn, it was a great event. Congratulations to your family and thank you for inviting Mike to come and to join in your yummy dinner as well.

This whole event is swoon-worthy. What a delight!

Oh Baby!

You know what they say about the second and third child when it comes to pictures? Well, Cole is my 5th (and supposedly last) g-babe and it seems to be coming true for him up to now. I need to put an end to that right soon and get more pictures taken of this little […]

He does look like himself! What a sweet little boy. Can’t wait to see who he favors as he grows older.

Wow, really beautiful blue eyes. That second photo in particular is so expressive, like a pensive adult.

2nd picture does have the look of Simone but I’m sure he’ll be himself. Looking forward to meeting him when we get home.

He looks like him self. Not like his sisters I think. And very good looking, like his sisters, but not like them.

What a pretty baby!! Those eyes look right through me. Precious.

Thank you everyone for the sweet comments on my sweet grandson. The day after I posted these pictures, his mom and I went belated birthday shopping and were out with just Cole for 8 hours (yes 8). He was the BEST baby when awake giving smiles and coos to anyone who would talk with him. He’s squishy too. 🙂 More to come for sure!

Aubrey - September 5, 2015 - 9:17 AM

Oh boy!!!! He is just delicious! Baby boys will always have my heart. Megan should have a dozen more 😉

A dozen more?! Oh boy, I don’t think so!!!

The Priebe Family

You’ll recognize Matt and Andrea and their kids from several other posts on my blog, but now here’s the rest of the Priebe family who were here on vacation from Minnesota. Luckily they came before the really hot weather hit! The day we took these images it was at least under 100. Ron and Bev […]

Hey, Mary, that’s the first locale of yours I recognize! (I hope the Priebes didn’t run over you on that bridge.)

Megan - July 3, 2015 - 1:07 PM

That big of a group had to of had it’s challenges, but if it did you’d never know it looking at the pictures. I love the group one on the bridge and the kids on the log. Well done mama!!

Thank you Vince and Megan! It was a fun session.

Andrea - July 5, 2015 - 10:04 PM

Mary – Thank you for these beautiful pictures. You are so fun to work with & even with SO MANY OF US your creativity & patience was endless! What a gift to have the cousins together & photos to reminisce over. 🙂

Fairly Candid - July 5, 2015 - 11:18 PM

Thank you Andrea, that was the nicest compliment. I’m glad you liked them and you guys were so easy to work with.
