Announcing the 2024 Feature Image

March 5, 2024

It is that time of year to choose the 2024 feature image. This is when I go through all the images I captured throughout the previous year and choose a feature image. That image is then added to everything from my website header to social media and all marketing material for the new year.

Each year it seems to get harder and harder to choose. The main requirement for the image is that it shows love, laughter, strength, and adventure. I feel like this sweet image embodies it all. So, 2024’s feature image has been chosen!! And this sweet boys stole the show. Be sure to check out this image and so many more fun family moments on my site too.

So are you ready for that image?

And the 2024 feature image is…

Being a family photographer is such a joy. Even when they are little and throw fits because photos are not what they want to do. Haha! Through my sessions I get to watch my families grow, capture their important memories, and get to become friends. And acquire cute little nicknames like “camera coach” from this family’s oldest.

This past year I got to capture a client’s engagement session and she has been with me since her senior portraits in 2013. I don’t photograph weddings often anymore, but I will be capturing her saying I do this year. I also have some clients that I have photographed as newborns that will be teens this year. Getting to capture these kinds of moments for my clients fills my heart. And can never say thank you enough!

One of my favorite things to do with families with little ones is to just let them play and snuggle. Capturing them just being them. And sometimes that means running in circles around mom and dad. Just check out how absolutely precious these photos are. I cannot wait to capture this family again in the future.

Is it your turn?

Now that you checked out some of my favorite images from this session, are you thinking about family photos? Now is the time! Do not wait. Time flies faster than we want to acknowledge. Waiting to lose some weight, for the kids get “easier,” to have the perfect location, or whatever other excuse come up…STOP and book your session. I am guilty of it too. But our children think we are perfect just as we are. I would love to capture you and your family in the now! So let’s book a session.
