Swails-Miller Family

Welcome back to my blog Nick and Amanda! This is my fifth year photographing the twins, Henry in blue and Peter in orange. I got to photograph their first birthday at my house with a white backdrop and red frosted cupcakes to celebrate the occasion. We still laugh that it looked like a murder scene! […]

These are wonderful. The boys look just like their parents, especially the mom.

Thanks Vince, glad to have you back on the blog!

Mary I love this family. They are so photogenic. I really like where you took the pictures. They fit right in. I really liked the picture of the 3 boys where you had one in front the oldest in the middle and one on his shoulders. You are such a great photographer and come up with great ideas for pictures. So glad they came back for a photo session. I remember the red icing pictures. Ha.

Thank you Tracey. I agree – they are all photogenic. Makes my job pretty easy.

Oh just look at that boy heaven. LOVE all the brother pictures you got. That Gus has the most stunning eyes…modeling in his future and it’s no surprise because mom is an Angelina Jolie doppelganger!!!

Joe and Hope and Family

We met Joe and Hope about seven or eight years ago when they lived in our old neighborhood (we have both since moved) and five years ago I was asked to photograph Hope’s mom and dad in celebration of their 50th anniversary (see that here). What a joy to be around their sweet love and […]

Mary such a good looking family. Looks like you had a lot of fun that day for sure.

Yes all true. Thanks Tracey ­čÖé

Thank you for helping me Martha. It was sure fun meeting you!

Vince - September 27, 2017 - 3:03 PM

These are all great, but I especially like the five of them approaching you hand in hand. What a good idea.

Fairly Candid - September 27, 2017 - 3:35 PM

Hey Vince, thanks for your comment. They laughed when I made them do it — but then that’s the point, right?

Baby Warren

Meet beautiful baby Warren born to Marla and RC after an intense 4 day labor and three weeks overdue! I was so impressed with Marla’s story – what a tough momma. He was named after his dad’s grandfather, has Marla’s maiden name as his middle name, and at three weeks old, was such a calm […]

OMG Mary! What a fantastic job of capturing such a beautiful little baby boy! Everyone should be very proud of this little one! I can certainly see why. Love the pics! Congrats to all!!

Thank you Gloria, it’s exciting to see our friends grandbabies isn’t it. Another one of yours will be photographed in February. Woo hoo!

Vince - September 27, 2017 - 3:05 PM

You sure have a magic touch with newborns, Mary!

Fairly Candid - September 27, 2017 - 3:35 PM

It’s the rocking and shushing … all newborns are like putty in my hands. Wink.

Megan Gerichs - September 30, 2017 - 9:06 PM

Stop! Stop! Stop!!! You’re killing me with this GORGEOUS blue eyed perfect little boy. And there’s nothing like the photo of new parents swooning over their bundle- pure joy that shines through.

Overall Family

You watch out for these two girls in about 15-20 years because they are going to be our future leaders, no doubt in my mind, and whatever they do they’ll be fabulous at it. Addi, now 5, and little sis Sylvia, 13 months, are go getters, on the go, going somewhere —┬áleaving me behind — […]

Mary, those girls are just precious. Lovely family. The areas that you took the pictures were great. I love the ones where the girls are setting on rocks or jumping off the log. They are just so cute. Thank you family for letting Mary share the pictures of your wonderful family. Enjoy every minute before you know it the boys will be knocking at your door.

Fairly Candid - September 14, 2017 - 9:14 AM

What a cute comment Tracey. I loved every word of it.
Take care my friend, Mary

Welp, you did it again. Made it completely impossible for that mom to choose just one or two to put on her wall. No, she’s going to be like me and have a narcissistic wall of her family because they are stunning and those babies on those suitcases should never be taken off a wall. Nice work, Ma. You’re a master at this.
