Thank You

I would like to take a moment to thank all of my wonderful clients. 2008 was a fantastic year and it would not be possible without all of you. To everyone who recommended me to a friend or hired me to shoot their special moment in time, THANK YOU. To my husband and sweet girls for helping me take the time to make this business a reality.. I love you!
I wish all of you a happy and healthy 2009.

The face of an angel

This was my last shoot of 2008 and what an fantastic note to end on. I went to her house and set up in the living room but little miss was not really in the mood to have her pictures taken. We did not end up with a smile but I am in love with these and her. Take a moment and study her features.. to me they are beyond perfect. Both parents worked with me the whole time pulling out every "trick in the book" and in between some tears here are my favorites.

Brotzman family

Taking pictures of my friends give me great satisfaction. It usually is a little more relaxed - the kids aren't afraid or timid...if its a sunday I stay in my casual "dont' go out of the house clothes"'s a beautiful thing. Thank you Brotzmans for allowing me to capture your beautiful family.

My buddy

It was time for my favorite little mans, 6month shoot. He wasn't as smiley as last time but we still managed to get a few good ones. See you in 3 months little man :)

Sullivan family

I had the distinct honor of capturing this little girl when she was only a few weeks old-now look at how shes grown. She is so beautiful! This family is about to expand and I can't wait to see the new addition.. watch the blog I'm sure "it" will make an appearance.

This is what happens when a two year old says "I'm DONE"

The land of appointments is now quite until after the holidays. I am busy preparing orders that will be given as gifts. But look who came over for thanksgiving. This is all of the grandchildren on my husbands side of the family. It is not a fancy portrait but considering they gave me 15 minutes of there football/video game time it is worth taking. I did a really quick shoot with Lilly and she was in such good spirits-such a sweet baby.

As a typical senior boy, Patrick really didn't care about his photo shoot. He did however bring a really cool prop and his outfits were perfect.
Remember Patrick, chin down-its all about the lines :)

I have known these lovely ladies for years so it is really fun to work with them. I was tickled to see them relax and have a good time. Aren't they beautiful!!

Linn girls

These two beautiful ladies are mine. If you want to see a photographer go nuts, have them photograph their own 2 teenagers! Between the making fun of each other, try to scrap it out we did manage to get some good shots. Every year I say I am going to hire someone else to do this job. But in the end I really can't stand not to be in control of the out come, and this year is no exception they look lovely.

Borgman family

I love working with this family! Everyone is relaxed, dad doesn't mind smiling and little Lydia is one of the most energetic little girls I have ever met. Lots of laughs were had during this shoot, just trying to walk on the rocks was enough comedy for all. Thank you Borgmans for allowing me to capture you once again.


Well this was a first for me.. a photo shoot of a pooch! It was fun, we took Hattie to a horse farm where she had more fun eating horse poo than posing.

There is no better gift for a parent than a picture of their family. I would love to see grama's face when she opens these.

She couldn't take being good any longer, time for a nap in the middle of the park.


I drove to this young mans house for his shoot and what a beautiful location it was. Poor Zac was a little chilly the whole time, but never complained. He has a wonderful smile-if you can get it :)

Max & Sharon

This is the lovely couple who loaned me their land last sunday- thank you!. We pulled off an all time Jill Linn first 'super sunday'. Five families in a row getting pictures done. It was really fun and at the end of the day exhausting. All of the posts done today are from this sunday.


Look at the girls in this family- absolutely adorable! Dad came out of the woods, changed had his picture taken and then went back in for more hunting- I'm glad he did, nothing is better than a good family portrait.

Vanest family

Any time you get to work with your best friends it's fun. A big thanks to Tina for setting up my 'super sunday' shoot and introducing me to such wonderful people. Gee Steve looks like you actually gave me a 1/2 smile :)

Dodie children

Just shooting these two I could tell they have great relationship- it was beautiful.


Kim had always wanted a bridge picture so this year that goal was accomplished. Thank you to the children (and parents) for being such troopers and doing this shoot early am after a long evening. It was an honor to photograph your family again this year.
