Chef Gaby + Erika [Mother & Daughter Series #4 - North Liberty, IA Lifestyle Photography]

I have a great time at all of my sessions and weddings, but this one was extra special for me. I truly adore Chef Gaby, and her daughter Erika is just as wonderful! Gaby wanted to incorporate cooking with her daughter into this session, showcasing the two things she loves most in the world. There's something very energizing and inspiring about watching someone do something they are meant to do - the joy seems to just radiate out of them. I've had the privilege of photographing many small business owners who have this same kind of energy and it's one of the best parts about my job.

Gaby and Erika, thank you thank you thank you for choosing me to photograph this session for you guys. I had a blast hanging out with you both, and watching you cook together. I'm very thankful that our lives crossed paths, you two are the best!

Holly + Elliot [Mother & Daughter Series #3 - Coralville, IA Family and Child Photography]

On Friday, Coelle and I met up with the gorgeous Holly and her sweet Elliot girl at Lake MacBride for Coelle's 3rd practice session and another in the series of Mother/Daughter sessions. The photos below are a mix of Coelle's and mine, we had such a beautiful night and so much fun with these two.

Again, Coelle continues to impress and amaze me. This girl has talent and I'm lucky to have her on my team! :)

Holly and Elliot, thank you so much for giving your time on Friday and modeling for us. You two are beautiful, and I hope you love this sneak peek.

Kayla + Jae [Mother & Daughter Series #2 - Coralville, IA Family Photography]

This session with the stunning Kayla and cutie pie Jae took place last Friday at the Terry Trueblood Recreation Area. This was Coelle's 2nd practice session and she did the majority of the shooting after her success with Tanya and Avery the week before.

Again, this is part of a Mother/Daughter series I am working on - so I took a handful of photos (more info on this project/Mother's Day special coming very soon!!) but the most of these are Coelle's work. I am SO proud of her, I can't wait to see her continue to progress as a photographer. We have many more practice sessions lined up and I am so excited for each and every one. Coelle's photos are credited below!

Kayla and Jae - thank you again for volunteering your time for Coelle to practice. You guys were wonderful!!

Hands down, my favorite of the session. Photo by Coelle. c-kayla-jae-2014_01

Tanya + Avery [Mother & Daughter Series #1 - North Liberty, IA Family Photography]

As you all know, Coelle joined my team this fall and not only is she doing styling, but she is also doing a ton of behind the scenes work. In addition to all of that, she is also eager to learn the photography aspect of things, which is awesome! This session is the first in a set of 3 Mother and Daughter sessions. The focus is for Coelle to learn in a session environment, but we use volunteers (we like to call them "models") who are willing to offer their time for Coelle to get practice in a no pressure situation. (If you are interested in modeling, we will be doing one of these sessions per month, contact me for more info - now looking for May models! I am looking for a variety - families, kids, couples, etc.)

During these sessions, I am teaching Coelle but I am also currently working on a personal project so I took some photos as well. This post features a few of Coelle's images, and some of mine as well to get you all excited for a special I will be offering in May (great gift idea for Mother's Day!) :) Can't wait to share more details soon.

These first three photos are by Coelle, she did a fantastic job!! I am so proud of her, and can't wait to see how she continues to progress!! Thanks as well to Tanya and Avery for modeling.
