As you may know, there has been some excitement here with the Generations Portraiture studio and office moving from my home, where it has been for the last 5 years, to the red barn on our property a month ago. The change of location has proved to be a good opportunity for me to rethink my business policies and procedures, and I am very excited to announce some changes that will be effective starting immediately. Here are some of the changes:

*Sessions will now be based on how long of a session is desired, instead of the number of people being photographed. This means session fees are going down in many cases. If you are interested in taking a look at the specifics, I hope you’ll call or email…I’d be happy to email or snail mail you the details!

*I will be offering in person viewing and ordering sessions a few days after your family, child, or senior session. In the past clients have requested this, but it was usually not possible with my office being in my home. Having much more space now, I am excited to offer my help and guidance during image selection! Online proofing will still be available, but will be limited to a few days of online viewing and ordering. Regardless of which proofing option is chosen, it will be decided upon and scheduled when you call to schedule the photo session.

*I will be offering custom framing! I worked for several years as a picture framer and am glad to offer this service!

*I am offering several new products including an image presentation boxes filled with prints from the session, albums for portrait sessions, and some fun image grouping options. I want to make it easy for you to use personal portrait art to decorate and grace your home!

There are even more changes, but hopefully this brief summary gives you an idea of how I am trying to serve my clients better!

Again, I hope that if you are thinking about having portraits dome by me this year, that you would feel free to email or call so I can get all the information to you and answer any questions you may have.

I don’t want to have a post with no pictures, so I will end with a few pictures of Tess, another beautiful senior from last summer!



After a lengthy blogging “leave of absence” I am anxious to get back in the habit of blogging my sessions faithfully once again! In addition, for the next while, I will be trying to get sessions from last summer and fall blogged along with current shoots. It might be a little confusing, but I had such fun sessions and weddings….they are just too special to skip altogether! And at the tail end of this long winter, it might be refreshing to see some pictures taken in green grass!

I was so honored that Bailee came up from Lincoln Nebraska to have me take some senior portraits of her last summer. Enjoy!


Maggie and Tom

I am excited to show you a few highlights from Maggie and Tom’s engagement session from a week or two ago! If you were at a wedding I photographed last summer, there is a good chance you saw Maggie with me as my wedding assistant. It was usually pretty entertaining watching the single guys at the weddings cast glances Maggie’s way. It just so happens that she is just as sweet, talented and kind as she is beautiful! I’m sorry to inform all the single men that Maggie is now officially spoken for! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think Maggie and Tom are a perfect match…it is so much fun to see them together!

I am blessed to have known Maggie and her family for a long time. Once a week Maggie comes here after class at NWC and helps me in the studio. Through our conversations I have learned so much about Tom, but this was really the first time I had the opportunity to spend more than a few moments with him. Couldn’t be more impressed! Of course it does not hurt that Tom graduated from my alma mater!

There is a part of me that wonders if spring is really ever coming this year. But I can hardly complain when I am still able to take such fun winter pictures this late in the year!

Maggie and Tom….thanks for spending a little time here with me….I can’t wait for July 3!!!

Once again, beautiful shots, but will say you had some good subject matter to work with! : ) What a good looking couple. Glad to see some pics again!

Don’t have to DREAM…

…when you can just look out the window and enjoy a VERY white Christmas!

While we are bummed about not being able to go out and see and celebrate with family, we are SO enjoying being snowed in, baking cookies, watching movies together, laughing together, and opening and playing with presents. On days like this I realize anew that these are the golden years of our family. All our children under one roof, everyone healthy, and so many blessings to enjoy. Mostly, the ONE most important blessing to be thankful for today.

Wishing you all a very safe and happy CHRISTmas.
