Gehrke girls : portraits!

Recently I got to do some pictures for these girls -- aren't they gorgeous?!
I'm pretty sure I could photograph sisters all day - every day and never get tired of it.
Probably because I have all brothers, and therefore love seeing sisters interact together 
and the bond they share. :)

Also, a quick heads up that I am booking REALLY fast for fall sessions right now,
so please e-mail or send me a message here asap if you would like photos to have before Christmas!! :)
I hate turning people away, but I have to preserve my sanity and stay on top of things 
somehow so I am limiting myself again this fall. ;)
Can't wait for all the beautiful people and autumn colors I will get to capture over the next couple months!!

Cheyenne just got her braces off, which was the main reason their mom wanted to do this session --
such a fun idea!!

Workshop Portraits : Chels, Shelby + Danica

 photo cover.jpg
I am super stoked to blog these images from my workshop back in July!!
As part of the day, we did a portrait session shoot with three models --
my dear friend, Chels, and two sisters Shelby + Danica.
They all were amazing, because not only was I photographing them but also the 5 attendees got a turn, 
so for an hour straight they got the paparazzi treatment and ROCKED it!
I'll also be blogging the photos from our family session that day soon, 
so keep checking back and get excited for those. :)

Always a joy to photograph this girl..and not only was she modeling for us but she also helped me out
in so many different ways throughout the whole day.
What a gem -- so grateful for her friendship.

I met Danica & Shelby's family earlier this year, and when I contacted their mom about the girls modeling for my workshop, 
they instantly agreed!!
So happy it worked out, because seriously how adorable are they?!

(also, I should mention that I got this peach tunic at 
Goodwill YEARS ago,
and am so glad I finally got to use it!!)
