Mouser Jr Family

LOVE! Thanks for working so hard to get these done. Can’t wait to start my canvas wall!! Favorite picture by far is the one of MJ laughing. Makes my mama heart melt. You’re AWESOME!

These are darling! I love the one of the boys snickering to each other backwards on the bridge.

Mary, what a beautiful family! Your grandsons are adorable! I love that the oldest looks like his mom and the youngest like his dad. You captured their cute personalities. You have a talent Mary and a beautiful family. 🙂

Mary my goodness how those boys have grown. They are getting to be in the handsome stage aren’t they? The pictures are great! Love the laughing ones. Son might need to think the beard idea through. Maybe just needs to be shorter. Oh and the dog is so cute. Really adds to the pictures. Those boys are very photogenic. Great job!

Thanks Cody and Tracey for catching up with half of my family. The other kids just got a new puppy so they wanted to wait to do their session. Nice hearing from you both!

Reed Family

This is my second year photographing the Reeds — Greg, Sarah, Ellie, and little Oliver (turning 5 and 2 respectively in December). After recently moving one month before this session, I got to photograph at their beautiful home in the foothills on a cold but beautiful Saturday morning. Oliver wasn’t really into having his picture […]
