So this month=me sleeping in my own bed for a total of 10 nights. Looks like I need to get better at blogging from the road.  Keep your eyes peeled this week as we’re gonna try and get a load of shoots up in the coming days before we depart again.

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to meet the lovely and energetic Krause family. Keeping up with little Asher was both a blast as well as a stinkin’ workout! Either way this kid will melt your heart….

On a side note… the winter hockey season starts tonight. Let the Ironmen domination begin.

What an amazing adventure this was! Not only were all three of these little ones a crazy good time, but they just lit it up in front of the camera. This was quite possibly the best time I have had behind the lens in a very long time. And I make sure to have a good time, every time.

Let’s just put it this way… I turn my head for 5 seconds and the next thing I know the whole family is waist deep, trudging around in a fountain. Perfect.

With no further adue…

Oh yeah. That’s right. We are officially open for biz.

And we kicked things off with the incredible Poeschl family. Not only were they an absolute blast, but Clint is Whitney’s boss, so we have to say lots of nice things about them…. 😉 Like…. man, that Clint is soooo good looking. Or something… (this is Ben writing this, by the way… because it would be weird if Whitney said that… really weird.) Moving along…

Grace was such a sweet heart and even drew us a picture to let us know how pumped she was to get her photo taken.

The last few weeks have been a blast as we’ve busted out into the world of family portraits. So if you find yourself wanting to spend a crazy fun afternoon makin’ images that will bring your Christmas card to the “all my friends are jealous of how awesome it is” level… then by all means give us a call. Our pre-xmas calendar is fillin’ quickly!

Check back in the coming days to see a few more examples of some other family goodness! Thanks to the Poeschl’s for a rockin’ time!
