The Severns and Wielenga Families

Ok, I’m going to be honest here and say I am really jealous about this post. Barb Severns and her daughter Lori Wielenga were some of my very first clients when I went public with Fairly Candid four years ago. They have had me shoot their family six different times in those four years!!! My little photo business has grown in those four years and I attribute it to people like Barb and Lori who have referred me to other nice people that I have had the privilege of meeting and getting to know. The part I’m jealous about is that I wish I had more images of Mike and I with our kids and grandkids in a setting like this! (Cassie, beware because I’m coming your way this coming year after Cole arrives!!!) So all that aside, thank you Barb, and I hope some of these make it onto your walls, into your photo albums, and always in your heart. 🙂 Your grandkids have become quite special to me and it’s wonderful to welcome Rylan into the fold. His mom, Nicole, married Jud this summer in Lake Tahoe where I hear she jumped in the water with her wedding dress on. Man, I would have liked to have snapped that! Way to go Nicole and congratulations to the both of you!

Kudos to Grandma Barb for this next pose. I was just as impressed as her Grandkids were when she did it. Makes me hurt just looking at it … but really, how real are those kids smiles! 🙂


Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Now run and get those errands done!

Oh. My. Gosh. That combination of photogenic subjects and photographic skill is just killer! It makes me happy to look at them!
