Craig, Lori, and Ella [Mini-Session]

I don’t even know where to start with this family and Lori’s mom’s Barb (Oma). First of all, I listened to Christmas music the entire time I edited their pictures because I LOVED their outfits with the cheery Christmas colors! Secondly, they are one of the sweetest families you’d ever meet. They live their Christian faith in doing for others and were one of my very first clients with Fairly Candid. They have used me for family photos when Ella was just a new baby and I was first starting out two years ago, at Easter when Ella was 3 months (I won a blue ribbon at the Fair from one of those images of Ella and her cousins), again when Ella was 9 months, and then at her ONEderful First Birthday. Then I photographed Ella and her cousins again this spring when she was 18 months, and now Christmas as a two year old. What a pretty little girl and such a privilege to get to photograph her growth! Since it was so cold (38 degrees) and Ella wanted to be wrapped in her Oma’s warm arms, we took a little extra time getting some images of Craig and Lori. As parents, we need to remember we were a couple first and it’s good to display images of just the two of you for your children … as well as themselves alone and as part of the family. I seriously love and appreciate all of you! Happy Thanksgiving to those in the pictures … and those viewing them. Love, Mary

Mary, thanks SO much for doing such an incredible job….again! You never disappoint, and you never cease to amaze us! Thanks for taking such great pictures that we can use for years to come. We love you!

The picture of Ella made me cry. You are the very best. Thank you for sharing your time and talent with my family.

Thank you Lori and Barb … so happy you love them. Barb, it’s obvious you have quite a close relationship with Ella. She adores her Oma. Mary

Mary, You inspire me to get better about my blogging. I am so bad about it so I am making a goal that January 1, I will be posting something for every day in January. Love seeing your work and getting to know your families and others through their portrait sessions.

Hey Kathy! You’ve been doing this a lot longer than I have and are probably much busier (although I’m not sure how I could get any busier with my part time job and then photography!). I loved hearing from you and some time I’m going to fly to Texas to hopefully stay with you a few days and learn a few things from you. I’ll get on your blog and look forward to your posts in January! Thanks for commenting! Love, Mary
