WELCOME TO THE LEP BLOG!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!! This is where I give families sneak peeks of their fabulous sessions and rant and rave about the amazing job I have! I LOVE what I do, capturing love moments of babies, families and everything in between! At this time, I am unable to do weddings, events, and large families.

Color and contrast on my blog are very dull. It's a problem I've been having for over a year now and hopefully it will lead to a new blog soon.

Hartnett Family

The Hartnett Family met me downtown in Sioux City and we had to walk all over to find some not windy spots!! These girls are beauties and sooo sweet!!


I love this family shot!!

Beautiful Kelli who has a killer serious face :-)

How sweet is she!

I actually really like the windy hair in this one, she looks soo pretty!

These girls can totally rock the serious look and we found a trailer full of tires to take some shots on, I think it turned out great!!

It was so nice meeting you Hartnett Family!! Such a beautiful family, thanks for spending time with me in some of my favorite spots downtown. I hope you enjoy your pics!!

Redmond Family

The Redmond Family picked a beautiful location, up in the hills of Stone Park. The trees were just starting to change but with all the yellow grass and red accents all over, it was very colorful! Here's the whole fam looking over the park

I had to get the twins in their "cool" mode.


Ethan wanted a picture by himself so bad(we don't have to tell him but I take individuals of all kiddies, isn't he sweet!!!) I think it turned out marvelous!

Beautiful!


Thanks Redmond Family for picking a great location and spending some time with me on a great(slightly windy) afternoon!! You guys were wonderful! Hope you enjoy your pictures!

LaFleur Family

This was an absolute treat. I hadn't seen Nicole in so many years and had such a great time hanging out with her amazing family. Nicole's brother and my brother used to be best friends when they were little!!

Nicole was awesome and brought all the kids cowboy, fishing, hunting, and football gear...how adorable!

Little Tyler is just a gem, he just sat and smiled the whole time :-)


I adore this shot, had to get a few of their very well behaved doggy!!


This should be blown up and framed in everyone's home haha! These boys are adorable!


Koda just perfectly positioned himself in this one, such a smart pup!


So great to see you Nicole and meet your fantastic family, thanks for spending time with me and letting me capture some moments!! Hope you enjoy them!

Beumler girls continued.....

I've been crying and laughing outloud at myself while editing these...these girls are rock stars!!!



Could be one of my most favorite pics ever...next time I'm jumping in!!


You girls rock...see you Sunday!

Brock Family

The Brock Family met me at Bacon Creek for a beautiful afternoon :-) They are very outdoorsy so this was the perfect spot! I love all the greens and browns!!


Aidan just turned 8 and loves his mom!!!
Carter reminds me of myself, very much the oldest!
I loved this large wood planks, great texture and color :-)
As you can bet, these two boys, don't always act this way, but I thank them for being willing to sit this close to each other haha!! They were great sports!
Aidan could have climbed trees and hit sticks all day, he is all boy!

Thanks Brock Family for trekking all around Bacon Creek with me and for not laughing at me when I fell down the hill haha!! Hope you enjoy all your pictures!!

These are my wonderful cousins and we had such a riot on Sat. afternoon!! They were willing to go anywhere and do anything and they have so much fun together!!





Miss Sarah
Miss Grace :-)
Just makes my heart melt

They laughed so much I wanted to get in on it! These two have the best personalities and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them interact!

Oh there will be more....pink guitars, head banging, and a rocking stage....coming soon!!Thanks guys for a perfect afternoon downtown...you totally rocked it!

Hansen Family

I had a huge full weekend in Sioux City and I can't even explain how awesome it was!! I met with 6 fantastic families with the most wide array of personalities and tastes, which made for so many fun shots. My first family, The Hansen's, were just a treat. Adorable kids, good looking parents, and extremely well mannered!! It was very difficult for me to turn any of these into black and white because of their fantastic outfits and colors! Here's just a small handful of our super fun shoot! Oh and my mom gets all the credit for Curtis' smiles, she was my assistant for this shoot...THANKS MOM!


Miss Annie
Miss Ashley
Mr. Curtis Jr.

Now for some fun shots...I told the girls to make each other laugh, which took all of one second for them to just bust up! They are adorable and you can tell they really enjoy each other!

Beautiful swing shot of Ashley who asked me nicely to take pictures of her swinging, she didn't want the session to end :-)
What joy!!
I had such a wonderful time with all of you! Can't wait for you to see all the pics!!
