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.

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!

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!

Busacker Family

Maren was on the blog a few posts ago with her senior pics and now she’s back with the whole family. And what a fun family it is! I truly love being surrounded by all these kids and Siri and Bret. I first met Bret at a law firm we both worked for at the […]

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 […]

The Rambo Sisters, Et Al

This session was all things blessed, loving, and fun. Three sisters Kay, Didi, and Sylvia (who call themselves The Rambo Sisters because it was their maiden names), their three daughters Toni, Donna, and Antonia, and their two daughter-in-laws Bridgette and TJ, spent this past weekend together in Donna’s house, Didi’s daughter. Donna and Toni, Kay’s […]

The Sukeena Family

Welcome to Vicki and Curt, their boys Zach (visiting home from Ft. Collins, CO) and Joshua, his wife Abbey, and their sweet little one, Savanna, now 18 months. It was a joy to spend some time with them on a beautiful ‘official’ fall evening. Vicki is the sister to Robby’s sister-in-law, Terri, so I first […]

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

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.

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!!!

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 […]

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?
