Just before Christmas this family gathered at my studio for a picture to celebrate Mom & Dad’s 20th Anniversary


Being my studio space is on the smaller side capturing a group of 10 in one shot just really isnt possible.

Plus getting 3 small children and all family members looking at the camera at the same time can also be a bit of challenge.

This family image is actually a merged image of 4 separate pictures!

The groups were shot in smaller sections and then images merged in post processing to create a fun family group picture where all children are looking!   There are many factors to consider when attempting this type of merge.  You want each image to have everyone at the same size & lighting to maintain consistency across so the final image doesn’t look pieced together.


We had a great time shooting these images…..  And aren’t those little ones just adorable!!

I really love my repeat clients!

I love watching little ones grow and change.

Their personalities are all unique.

This family is no exception…..

I have had the pleasure of meeting this family when

Mommy was expecting her little bundle at her Maternity Session.


I got to see him as a newborn and again at 6 months….


And now he is an adorable little One year old.


I drove to their farm and had fun capturing their family!


Here are some of my favorites from their session.

Playing catch up on the blog……

wow  where did August & September go?

Sure has been a busy few months at Studio LPP!

Hope you have had a great summer and

spent lots of quality family time outdoors!


Recently I was contacted by a grandma who

wanted some images of her granddaughter, son & daughter.

We had a fun day at the park!

Started off with one serious little princess

who wasn’t too sure about the person holding the camera.

She warmed up a little and really smiled

when she spotted the dogs out for a walk at the park.

And running and playing in the water were definitely a big hit!


Here are some favorites of mine from this day at the park.

A few weeks ago I met up with one of my favorite clients……..

They have been coming to me for pictures since their little man was just a newborn.

Hard to believe he is now 2 years old.

Time sure does move way too quickly…..

We headed out to a park/museum area that had a train.  Safety first when it comes to taking clients pics.

NO WAY would I put a little one anywhere near a real train track.  Even my Senior clients maintain a safe distance to active railroad tracks like in my last shoot.

Ok so no client in this next pic……….  but wanted to share an area we attempted pics with this little guy……  unfortunately he had more fun running around the circle path. He is one fast little guy.  Trying to keep up with him was…….. well a bit challenging.  haha  Well honestly all 2 year olds make you work for those pics, its all part of the job description.  I love it!

I did catch this shot of him off on his own mission that I thought was adorable and deserving of a quote…..

Funny thing was his most favorite part in the park appeared to be a ramp to the gardener’s shack.  He loved running up and down the ramp.

Hard to believe its already been a year since this little princess first came to me for pictures.

She makes us work for those smiles but when she smiles she melts hearts.

I feel very honored when I get to watch my youngest clients grow.

Here are a few of the studio and out door pics from her latest session………

ok maybe more than a few….. I can never pick just 2 or 3……  😉


And just so you can see how much this little princess has grown here are a few from her other sessions
