Being around Andy and Alison makes me SO excited about all the good, good, good things that blossom in marriage. Love, sure, but also firm respect, a constant mutual encouragement, and the deepest friendship imaginable. You two are in for the best adventure of your lives, and it’s already off to such a sweet start!
I wanted to live in this greenhouse after we got done shooting here. It did my can’t-wait-for-summer heart good! I love the magical combination of perfect light and a perfect couple. Cuuuuuuuute, you guys.
I know it doesn’t look it, but this day was very typically “March in Nebraska” (i.e. cold and windy). And when that’s the case, we pose for design + practicality. It didn’t take much extra suggesting to get them to cuddle close. :) But I will say that wind in Alison’s hair is worth a little shivering!
For as much fun as these two have, they have an awesome depth to their relationship. This image on the left was taken during the best moment. Beautifully romantic things were being said, and it is without a doubt my favorite. :D
Thank you Andy & Alison, for the best session and for being so dang cute. If I didn’t already have a thousand reasons to look forward to July, now I have another great one! Cheers!
I have been so fortunate to work with the best of the best people in the years I’ve been photographing families. I’m not trying to sugarcoat it - I truly cannot think of enough happy superlatives to write about the awesome people I get to take pictures of. Each year gets better and better, and I’m full of gratitude as I finish up my 2016 sessions. This family, extra special to me because HEY! THAT’S MY BROTHER, is my last one of the year, and there’s no better way to wrap up. Warning: all I’m about to say is biased, but also completely true. :D These guys are rockstars. Made for one another. And very adorable. Wait ’til you see their kids!
Major swoon. Meet my nieces Harper and Nora. The last time we did photos, Nora was a tiny baby, and it was pure sweetness to document their sisterhood this time. (You’ll also want to see their first session. ) Why am I blogging this photo, you ask? Time for another PSA about kids bein’ kids. (Interestingly, I have used sweet Harper as an example before…) Let’s be real – kids are awesome in that they will not pretend to be something they’re not. They have moods. They have ‘tudes. They’ll show up to your photo session and be shy instead of flashing their usual sunny smile. They sometimes take time to warm up, and truth be told, I love that. Let them be that way! Because then I can get photos like this one, of Harper Bean trying her darndest not to smile. Don’t worry, I cracked her. Keep scrollin’. :) This one took a little less convincing! Sweet, beautiful Nora girl, we love you!
See? The personality couldn’t resist coming out. Pretty sure these girls’ eyes have magical powers. My favorite. :)
Hey Mark, thanks for marrying Jenna and bringing such an awesome new sister into my life, and thanks for having two of the best little girls so I could be their aunt. :D Love you all to pieces.
I think it will be VERY clear, after looking through this glimpse of my session with Justin, Melissa, Connor and Emery why this family is my kind of family. They were so chill (literally, because it was pretty cold that day), relaxed, and had tons of fun with their photos. As a result, their personalities are just shining through these, and I am a little obsessed. :) And that’s all before I even talk about how dang cute they all are, so without further adieu, I present the very awesome Schnick family!
Connor, you handsome guy, those blue eyes are killer. And this photo of you with your gorgeous mom is a heart melter! If you know Justin, then this image is it. End of story.Sweet, sweet Emery, ohhhhh how she loves the camera. It was beyond fun to photograph her, and what was even more fun was having her pose her parents later. Little art director, I think! Favorite on the left!
These two have the sweetest relationship. I love that Connor isn’t “too cool” (yet, at least!) to hug his sister. This photo better be in both your wedding slideshows when the time comes, mkay?
Superhero time! Did I mention these guys were fun? More of this all the time, everywhere please! Pause. Stop your scrolling for a minute, because this is worth studying. This is what marriage is supposed to look like, filled with joy, 19 years and counting. Bravo, you guys!
Thank you so much, Schnicks! I had the best time with you guys. I hope these photos make you ridiculously happy every time you see them. :) Cheers!
