A Shoot to Remember

Sorry for the long lapse in posts.  It's been a busy time here for me.  Fall and into the holiday season is always crazy, so I appreciate you all bearing with me.

I had the opportunity to do a shoot for longtime family friends yesterday.  It was a neat shoot as we employed the loves of this man....his wife, his horses, and in the next few weeks, his family.   Health issues are at the forefront of his life, therefore it made this shoot really meaningful to not only him and his family, but for me as well.  I'm so honored they chose me to do this for them.   I went in with a heavy heart, but it also makes my heart full knowing I could do this little bit for them.  It makes it all worthwhile for me and made me realize I'm doing what God put me on this earth to do.  Help people make and capture memories.  I'll post more at a later date.  For now, please say your prayers for my friends as they go through this challenge.

DeFoe Family

Another great family from Watford !  I've known Tim & Stacy all my life, but was fun to finally meet their great boys!   This family is really into hunting and the outdoors, so we had a blast doing some of those shots.  I'm sure you all think I've totally lost it photographing Stacy with deer horns behind her head.  Just seemed to go along with her "Trophy Wife" shirt.....I couldn't resist.   :)   Happy Hunting!

The Leiseth's

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the Leiseth family recently near my old stomping grounds of Watford City.    Karen is a classmate of mine from high school and I've also known Troy all my life.  Was fun to catch up with them again and watch their girls in action with their horses.  They're big into roping & rodeo, cowgirling, and simply....the country life.  Thanks Troy, Karen, MacKenna, & Jayden for a fun evening!   Troy gave Brady, my little guy, a new rope to try and torment his sister with by roping her feet.  Thanks Troy !  :)

The California Couple - Bill & Loretta

Andy and Jodi tie the knot !

Here's Andy and Jodi who were recently married!  They couldn't have picked a better day!  The weather was awesome and the wedding party was....what can I say.....a blast!    I've never put deer horns on a groom before - that was a first - who would've thought?  :)   I think Andy thought we had lost it.  Both he and Jodi along with everyone else were great sports through it all and we had so much fun.  You two make a great couple.  Here's to many years of happiness !
