The Roth Family

I may be biased, but the Roth family is awesome.  They are my cousins from the Dallas area.  My family had gathered in Salina, KS for a birthday celebration so we decided to do family pictures.


Nineteen years ago I helped these two celebrate their wedding by wearing a dark green bridesmaid dress.  My how the time has flown. IMG_1502_0299

These two are just so cute! Plus they are so fun to be around. The husband and I were on vacation in Dallas back in February and we spent a lot of time with them.  Samantha even had a photo shoot party with her girlfriends. It was a blast.


Unfortunantly we don’t get to spend a lot of time  together, but we always have a great time when we do. I was so honored they allowed me to take their pictures.

I always like to end the session on a fun note and the kids  were so over their parents lovey-dovey behavior. IMG_1656_0453

The Wright’s

 To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other’s hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.  ~Clara Ortega

The ages that the Wright siblings are at now I’m sure they find each other the most annoying people on this earth. But give it a few years and they’ll find this amazing bond that is between them.  Nothing like having a sibling. Even when they drive you crazy. Or when you push them off the bed and they break open their lip and you tell them if they cry mom will spank both of our butts (right April).  Just saying, not that ever happened! :) One day they will appreciate this amazing bond that being siblings creates!

The Augustine’s


I went to high school with Megan and Melissa. I was a Senior when they were Freshmen and they always seemed like nice girls when we played basketball together. I’d lost touch with the girls so when Megan messaged me that they wanted family pictures I was so excited.  As with all my sessions we do more talking than picture taking, but I enjoy reconnecting with people.  I have to say their dad is so ornery!!!  And him and Donna have been married for 29 years!!!

Thank you Augustine family for an enjoyable evening!   blog template 8

In Kansas the opening weekend for Pheasant Season is always a big deal. Out of state hunters come by the hundreds.  And our friends from Colorado came just like they have been doing for 15 years now.  This year the whole family came along and they scheduled a photo session with me.  I’ll post about that later, but now I’ll show you some of the images I took while I was out walking with them.

I love watching the dogs and that’s probably why most of the images on my camera are of the labs. This is Miss Nelli

Then there is Remy.  She’s two years old and this dog stole my heart the first time I met her. Last year she was a clumsy, tall & skinny girl and I couldn’t get over how much she grown up since last year.

 Then there is Jessie who has been at this hunting game for 8 years now.  She’s a pro and loves every minute of it. I had to laugh when I arrived at the location Jessie was walking around stiff and slow. But once she was allowed to “hunt them up.” She was off like lightning. She was ready to get those pesky birds.

One thing is for sure these three ladies sure love what they are doing.

I wasn’t able to walk very much with them since I had to work in town during the day so I just shot a few images out in the field.

Here is my Father-in-law.

And one of our friend, Todd.

For now this is all that I have edited.
