Howard Family :: Sioux Falls, SD

My greatest and truest friend Jennie and I have been "bff's" since Junior High School. We were in the band together, and both played the flute. Oh the crazy memories and even crazier stories we can tell!!!! I looked up to her back then! And even more now.
Now that she lives in South Dakota, I try and make an annual trip to visit her and her family. I have visited their different seasons, and I would say this trip in October was by far my favorite! I was more than excited to take some photos of her beautiful family, they look like they could be on the cover of a magazine! Her boys Ethan, Samuel, and Griffin just melt my heart. I can't get enough of those little guys. Jennie and Nick, thank you for such a wonderful time as always. Can't wait to come back for next year's visit. Love you all

Welcome Baby Adara :: Newborn

My niece Adara was born on September 15, and I had the awesome opportunity of taking her newborn photos! The first time I held her, I must admit...I began to cry. She is just so incredibly perfect and sweet and tiny!!! We attempted at the newborn session on day 7, but little Adara wasn't quite feeling it that day. I came back over 12 days after she was born for a re-do. It went great! I had so much fun, and not only happy to do my first newborn session, but I feel connected to Adara in a closer way. I am so excited to be in this beautiful girl's life.
