Meet Amber

  • Family Farm Senior Portrait Session

Amber is entering her senior year and I can’t believe how fast these two+ years have flown by. One minute I’m meeting sophomores in highschool and the next minute they’re graduating!! It’s crazy!!

It’s a beautiful location with rustic barns, old tractors, barking hunting dogs and a lot of golden light that was so perfect for her portraits!!

That’s the LAST place I want to be. I’m horrible at holding onto receipts and every time I type some large quantity of numbers into the calculator I end up hitting ONE wrong number and have to start over!! It’s a painful process but it has to be done. Not only are we budgeting for our personal life but we’re also budgeting for the business as well. I’ve actually never budgeted expenses out for the business
