Beautiful family–terrific pictures.

The Johnstone’s

I photographed Nick and Olivia two years ago, and now they’re back with a new little baby in tow! Small world that it is, this family moved into the neighborhood I now live in — just around the block practically — so we stayed close to home for this session. Claire is now 6, and little […]

Oh Mary what a darling family. The girls are beautiful and Emmett is such a cutey. Really makes me want to hold him. Lovely family. Hope they will keep coming back for you to photograph them. Fun to watch families grow and change.

First off, I think I’ll just go knock on their door and borrow their wardrobes for my session. Secondly, I’ll take one order of the Emmett special. ♥♥♥

Christine is a long time friend of my daughter, and their husbands met through BSU basketball. Three handsome boys and two beautiful girls later, […]

Oh, this family is one of my all time favorites, and you capture their adorableness so well! Love all the couple pics between the two love birds and the ones of Carter on the bridge…be still my heart. Could that hair be any more curly and perfect??? They all sure well blue well. I think she’ll have a say in my next wardrobe choice!

Christine - July 28, 2014 - 9:26 PM

Donna and Dennis are friends of Angie, a friend of mine as well and my daughter-in-law’s mom.

A Birthday Family Affair

Turning the B-I-G 70 is certainly something to celebrate and so my sister-and-brother-in-law, Vickie and Mark, hosted a family gathering for her mom, Jo Marie, in their beautiful back yard. The kids, grandkids, siblings, and friends were there to help celebrate and while I won’t post every combination taken, I will spotlight a few of the family. It […]

Sophie and Her Dad

Be ready for cuteness from this petite, sweet, and free-spirited 2-year old Sophie! I took these images in early November but her dad, Larry — and our realtor from Silvercreek — wanted me to keep them off my blog to surprise his wife for Christmas. I hear she loved them so I’m happy. 🙂 This […]

Oh these were just darling!!! What an adorable little lady he has on his hands. Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Mommy opened them…I bet it completely melted her. What a sweet gift idea.

Love her long blonde locks and that big teethy smile. What a fun age!!!

Tracey - December 30, 2013 - 8:10 AM

Thanks for the tears. These are such great pictures. Any Mother would love them. Great work Mary. Sophie is such a cutie and the Dad is such a good sport. I hope they have many happy years with that darling little girl.

Santa Sighting

My cousins, Becky and Steve, put on an impressive family gathering for around 45 of us every year before Christmas. Santa used to come years ago when our generation of kids were small, and now we have a new generation of little ones in the grandbabies. Santa and Mrs. Claus have somehow found the time with their […]

As usual, you did a great job capturing the fun of the evening. Thanks for your pictures.

Megan - December 28, 2013 - 9:42 PM

Such a fun, fun tradition that has started!!! Thanks so much for organizing this, Mom and thanks Mr. and Mrs. Claus for being so jolly!

Next year Santa is only giving her a lollipop. I’ll get more excitement out of a 25 cent piece of candy!
