Essary Family {{Family Mini Session // Southwest Missouri Family Portrait Photographer}}

Savannah and I use to hang out and have so much fun a lot when we were younger.  It had been forever since we'd seen each other, so I was very excited when she wanted one of my mini session spots!!

I had SO much fun with them!! I could really tell being around them that they're a family that loves to be together and when they're together it's always a good time. I really think you get a sense of this when you look at their images.  Spencer cracked me up the entire time.  He told me that my lens looked like an eyeball, so I'd ask him to look into my eyeball.  Every time I did, he'd say eyeball but it sounded more like "Eyebooowwwllll!" It was so funny! And don't think I even have to mention how adorable he is. That's already obvious. :)

Here are my favorites from their session!! Be sure and leave them comments to tell them what an awesome family they are!!

Dwight + Allison {{Couple Session Southwest Missouri Couple Photographer}}

This session has been featured on

Man guys, lately the sessions I've been booking have been really, really amazing and every session becomes my new favorite!

Contrary to what you might believe, this beautiful couple are not models that I hired for a session.  They're a real couple who just so happen to be my family.

I was very excited when Allison contacted me a while ago for some pictures of her, her husband and Bear.  For a lot of reasons, but the main one being that Dwight is my cousin and a part of my family that, sadly, I don't see often.

When she sent me pictures of their outfits and told me what she wanted her session to be like, I got even more excited because I knew it was going to turn out awesome.  And I could not be happier with how their images turned out.

Leave them some happy comments below! :)

I'm also going to add a fun little image that I did for myself.  I have been wanting to do a double exposure for a long time and when I saw this image, I thought it would be the perfect one to try it with! Personally, I love how it turned out! What do you think?

Oh! One more thing!! Dwight is a very talented contractor! Check out his website here: and like his Facebook page here:
