I just met a few members of this family last month when I took graduation photos for Evan and also photographed one of these individual families at their home! I don’t think I’ve ever done 3 shoots for one family within a month, but I loved it and I’d happily do it again! This big […]

And it was so fun for me to meet the rest of the family and have the chance to photography them! They are all so sweet with each other and excited about photos, which makes […]

I’ve known Jennilee since Junior High and recently had the chance to reconnect with her through a mutual friend of ours that I also get to photograph! And I’m so thankful that we reconnected because I loved being able to capture photos of her and her adorable family at Blok Studio! I don’t do much […]
