The Gerichs

Here’s a little photo session to finish up before Christmas – of Megan and Robby and their kiddos, three of our five pretty awesome g-babes. Oh, and we have a new grand-dog this year too – Finley – shown here at 10 weeks. She’s a mini-Aussie and quite the cutie. Sydney, almost 8 and in […]

Mary lovely family. I bet you can’t get enough of those Grands.
5 is a good number of Grandchildren. The girls are so cute. The boys are precious (but don’t tell them that) ha. They seem to be growing up so fast. Of course your daughter and son-in-law look so happy. I like the deer picture. You should enter it in the fair and say find the 2nd deer. If you wouldn’t of said something I probably would of missed the fawn.
Thank you for sharing and I hope you ALL HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Thank you Tracey. They are growing up aren’t they? And yes, 5 is a good number although I always thought Cole should have a little cousin sibling as well, but Matt and Danielle didn’t see it my way. 😉 Have a wonderful Christmas as well and if I get my act together I’ll drop by the office and say hello. Take care, Mary

Gosh I love my people. Thank you for capturing such great pictures of them, and rushing to do so before your trip so I could get mine out and the weather would be nice. Boy am I glad we didn’t wait! Even the dog smiles for you!

Vince - December 16, 2017 - 2:21 PM

That might just be the happiest little boy on the planet. Nice job, Mary.

Mouser Jr Family

It’s been awhile since you’ve seen my kids and grandkids because I’ve been busy, but this should do the trick for now. And for those of you who haven’t seen my son in a while, yes, that’s him under that curly beard. 🙂 The kids recently moved to the neighborhood next to ours so as […]

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!

Megan Gerichs - November 18, 2017 - 11:14 AM

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

Cody Myers - November 20, 2017 - 8:11 AM

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. 🙂

Tracey - November 20, 2017 - 8:13 AM

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!

Fairly Candid - November 21, 2017 - 11:04 AM

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!

Matt - January 4, 2018 - 8:45 AM

Mom, sorry so late but I love the pictures here and on our wall. Love seeing the boys smile through the camera. Love ya.

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.

What??? Where did that red head go? What on earth is Curt going to say now when he talks about his red head? It looks awesome on you of course, I was just surprised to see it dark! Good for you, Vicki- you can pull anything off.

What a sweet bunch of pictures of a sweet family. It’s been too long- time for a Gerichs/Sukeena get together.

Don & Maureen Fuller - October 7, 2017 - 9:22 PM

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

Fairly Candid - September 27, 2017 - 3:33 PM

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

Tracey - September 28, 2017 - 8:35 AM

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.

Fairly Candid - September 29, 2017 - 3:50 PM

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

Megan - September 30, 2017 - 9:02 PM

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!!!
