• Our First Family Portraits

noticed… the blog has had a mini-facelift today!! Thanks to the amazing, hard working designers at Flosites, I have a fresh, updated homepage and I’m SO THANKFUL! (Alina, you’re the I ALSO have to give a HUGE shout out to Jodi and Kurt! They are two of the sweetest people and you KNOW you have GOOD friends when they agree to shoot some portraits of your four month old puppy! GAH! Bokeh was a little TERROR during our shoot several weeks ago but Jodi and Kurt worked their magic and I’m just amazed at what they were able to capture! Thanks to them, not only do we have some BEAUTIFUL family portraits… I FINALLY have new promotional

images for my brand. I’ve been wanting to get this done for FOREVER! Did anyone ever notice that some of the old headers on the blog were a little strange? There was one shot of my sitting on a bench with broken CONCRETE behind me! Talk about a BRAND BUSTER! That was NOT “Brand” appropriate at ALL! Now, I’m happy to say that I have updated images and I’m THRILLED! Thank you much Jodi and Kurt for capturing this phase of our life!! We love you two!!


Uhh… to say it was a little breezy would be an understatement! Ha! Bokeh, where’d your face go little buddy?!

Come onnnnn

One of my FAVS.

Can anyone say CHRISTMAS CARD?! Check that off the list!

ha! Bokeh looks like he’s grinning:)

Then we got brave and shot in the BROAD DAYLIGHT! They rocked it.

Love him

    New pics are beautiful but don’t sell the old ones short…I think the broken concrete with your own beautiful, composed image, captured what you do perfectly. You often shoot in gritty settings like alleyways, and yet the beauty of your subject always shines through. That was my favorite part about the older pics, so please don’t think it was a brand buster. But it IS good to see you, Michael, and Bokeh looking so gorgeous! ;)

    The picture of Bokeh “grinning” literally made me laugh out loud hahaha. You guys are so cute! Love the new photos! Jen and I had to do the same thing! Looking at our old pictures we were like “WHY are we wearing matching scarves?! NOT US!” They look great Katelyn!

    What a wonderful set of pictures! Bokeh is too cute! The farm girl in me sees that the crop is out of the ground and here farmers haven’t even thought about getting in the fields.

  34. Saundra reply

  36. Brittany (Eating Bird Food) reply

    oh my goodness. These are wonderful! I have to ask, what kind of dog is Bokeh?

  37. Eleonora reply

    Adorable is the perfect word to describe your puppy!

  38. Erica C. reply

    I liked the expressions on the old header and the acqua-teal bench was fun. I think a link to the old pic would (be historic and) help share the contrast for the fresh branding. Learning and growing is what it’s all about. It’s good to acknowledge and show growth.
