 Long overdue....a posting by us.  We enjoyed some time "off" with our families over the holidays, which seems like and eternity ago now that we are basking in 50 degree weather.  Can you believe they are predicting 70s this week?!?!   We have been busy shooting away, despite what you may think based on our lack of social media love. Here's a quick peek at a few sessions from the past few weeks that I particularly enjoyed.  Met this little man when he was just a few weeks old and now again to show off his sitting skills.  Oh...and he showed off his flirting skills too.  "M" had several passer-bys stop and stare a while :)
Another great maternity session with "J&L".  I was so thankful that they love black and white photos b/c I thought their session deserved a little B&W love!  And last but not least, little "T".  We started photographing her parents for their engagement session and now we are doing 6 month old baby photos.  It's been a privilege to be part of your story!

We have so much to be thankful for...our families, friends, warm homes to come home to, and you...our clients!  J|S Photography would not exist if it wasn't for YOU...so THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts for making our 'jobs' so fun and worth while.

I (Sonja) am also hijacking our blog to say how thankful I am for my great business partner because today is also Jen's birthday!!  It has been a great 2.5 years of working together on this little venture we set out on, but she is also a wonderful friend, a great mommy, a gifted photographer and I am blessed to know her (hopefully she won't mind me showing her off a little along with her sweet little family!)  Take time to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY today and also to tell those you love how thankful you are for them!

Have a BLESSED Thanksgiving!

Waiting for their gift...

I absolutely loved this session!  It was a great setting for a maternity session and the weather was perfect that  afternoon to get some outdoor shots as well, complete with leaves still on the trees.  This is a wonderful couple expecting their first little one, right around Christmas.  They were a pleasure to photograph.  Dad came with his "game face" on and I think I really won him over once I gave him full license to sneak in a kiss whenever he wanted :)  Their interaction together and excitement was so fun and easy to capture. I can't wait to meet this baby now!  
Thanks "B & N" for a fun afternoon and we'll see you again soon!

Senior "K"

When we are gearing up in the days before a photo shoot, you can usually hear us saying "as long as it's not raining, we'll be fine!"  Well, I now will add to that "...and the wind is not blowing like a typhoon!"  We had quite the windy day for "K's" senior photos, but she was such a great sport!  We managed to a get a few in the open field where her hair was not completely covering her face, but then we headed down to one of our favorite spots by the river and had a great rest of her shoot!  Thanks for being so fun to work with "K" and letting us capture this "once in a lifetime" time for you :)  Oh, and the ones with your sister...LOVE!  I hope you like them too!

It has been a couple years since we've done pictures for this family, so it was great to see them again! Even though we see them regularly at our church, it's always fun to see them outside of the "norm" and capture them on camera :)  Thanks for a fun session, "R" family!  Always great to see you...
