A Pretty Girl

I always get excited when I am able to take photos of our niece, Calico. She’s such a pretty girl, and an amazing individual. It’s become an annual thing — I take her “school” photos, which basically means she gets a fun “senior” type shoot every year. This year, and last, my friend Abby was […]

A Personal Touch

We have email, Snapchat, Facebook, and private messages through nearly every app, so keeping up […]

Reinbolt Family

I’m probably the slowest photographer known to man — in so much as work is concerned. I think people forget that I’m available for portrait work. Plus, it doesn’t help that I’m gone a lot on the weekends when families could come get their portraits made. Once in a while, someone will call and have […]

A Day On The Ranch

As I type this, it’s raining, it’s pouring, I wish I were snoring. I’ve been on heifer duty the past week, which, of course I love. But I’m dragging tail. I was out of my thyroid meds last week, so in addition to not getting but 4-6 hours of sleep each night, I was legitly […]

Family Foto Friday

Occasionally, people call me to take their family photo. And when they do I get all giddy and excited and my mind starts running in 1000 directions, planning what I’ll do and how I’ll have fun with them. Sometimes I meet them, and everything I thought I wanted to do gets thrown out the window. […]

The Portrait of a One-Year Old

It’s fun having family so close — for lots of reasons.  And I’ve somehow managed to become the family photographer. How that ever happened. I don’t know!  This adorable little boy celebrated his first birthday this fall, and I was able to make a portrait or two of him. while I’m late in sharing them, […]
