The Rivas Children {Children Photography}

I took these for my eldest sister, who has twin boys and a little girl, and hasn't had their pictures taken in fooorreever! :) So that's where I come in! These kids are super close in age, are pretty crazy, but really what 5 year olds aren't? and are super cute! Definitely not a dull moment with them around! So we didn't take horribly long in taking pictures, although I'm sure they thought it was, because they're attention span was focused on the treat at the end :) but here they are! 

We started out inside but they weren't too thrilled with that...

So we soon headed out to the swings instead! Much better :)

Asa and Aubree McMains {Family Photography}

I know these guys might look a little familiar but here are the McMains, one year later! Aubree texted me one day and asked if I could take their family pics again and luckily it was right before I went to MO for my trip so it all worked out to do them. I met them up one morning at Powell Gardens, such a pretty place!, and we took some pictures! We pretty much followed the kids around the paths, stopped wherever there was a pretty spot they liked and just enjoyed the nice, hot, Missouri morning! :) I was a little nervous, doing my first repeat customer and all but also felt so happy that they came back to me! Always a nice boost to your uneasy/not so confident self to have someone ask you to take their pictures again. :) So thank you so much McMains family! I really enjoyed taking your family pictures and hope you're as happy as you were the first time, if not more! :)

I was nervous too though about making sure to make it different, which sometimes it is, but it was a much different location and they went more casual dress so I think I did pretty good on changing things up a little. Still need to work on that though and in directing people but I'm slowly getting better! It was a bit difficult to get a good group one because the kids were all focused in different directions but luckily we got some right in the beginning that turned out great, didn't even have to swap heads to get one where everyone was looking! :) Anywho...enough of my babbling, here's the pictures!

The Jones Family {Family Photography}

My sister Emily called me up one day and asked if I wanted to take family pictures for her friend Hillary while I was home, and duh, I said yes. :) Emily and Hillary are both foster parents and Hillary currently has an almost one year old boy that they're hoping to adopt and wanted family pics with the little tyke! I, unfortunately, can't post any pics with him in it yet but here's some pics of the rest of the family! Hillary and her husband have an adorable little boy named Cohen and here's their family pics!

This is one of my favorite pictures of all I've done so far! He's such a little stud :)

We tried to get some pics with the horses but they kept coming up close to me or moving away so we didn't get too many

such a pretty horse though!

Thanks again Hillary for asking me to take your family pics! Hopefully I can put up more soon with your cute, chubby little boy!
