Meet the VandenHeuvels! These folks braved the cold to meet me by the river for some updated family photos, and some 8th grade portraits for E -- including the fantastic fashion choice of bow tie (keep scrolling). Good to see you again, VandenHeuvel family! // Ahna
This little girl was born just before Christmas, a sweet gift to her parents.

Where to go to escape winter dreariness? A greenhouse, of course. I escaped the cold (well, until the very end of the shoot) with the Slauer family: Stay warm, y'all! // Ahna

You can also send me your… Continue reading Stulp Family

You can always default to basics like black and white and jeans, but what if you could show a bit more personality?
