Going back to school means a a new year! When your a kid, you grow so much from one year to the next! That’s why us parents go crazy for school pictures! I like taking school pictures instead of buying the ones from the portrait company that goes into schools that we shall not name. There is no personality in generic back to school photos. Doing sessions this way documents how your kids really are in that moment.

These cuties are the Howell kids. I met their family doing the Bockrath wedding . Jaymes, Izak, and Ivey. It tends to happen that way for me, I start as the families wedding photographer and then usually come back to do maternity or family pictures down the road. Some families have been coming back to me since I first started and for that I feel so blessed!!! So when Amanda asked me to do the kids school pictures, I jumped at the chance!
