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.

WOW!!!

50 posts and 1000 blog views....THAT IS CRAZY!!!
I feel very blessed to be doing what I love and to get to meet such wonderful people! I'm starting to feel the holiday spirit and with those two big numbers and my brain trying to wrap around how excited I am that my business is flourishing and the holidays are coming, a Gift Certificate Giveaway is in store!

Here's your chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate towards any session (excluding weddings!). Email me at lins.ernst@yahoo.com with the headline "GC Giveaway" answering these two questions :-)

1. What is your favorite image on my blog? And why?

2. If you happen to win, what would you use your GC for? (use as a family session, give to a friend for a newborn session...whatever it may be!)

Don't forget to leave your name and email address that I can get ahold of you at. Contest will end on Monday, Nov. 24 @ noon. Contest is not judged as I know I probably know most of my readers, but will be drawn out of a hat :-( That doesn't mean you can't answer my questions hehe! I'm anxious to hear what my readers have to say!!

I wish I could do this all the time, but I'm very much looking forward to sharing some love and cheer (and hopefully some time) with a lucky blog reader :-) This is open to everyone!!!

Good luck, God speed and I hope I meet you soon!

The holidays are a-comin'......

Mackling Family

The Mackling Family met me at Wehrspann on Monday night :-) We had a great time! It was definitely a bit cold, but everyone was great and I made sure I worked really fast :-)



Big Brother Chase!

Super funny Avery :-)


Little Miss Brenna, she was sooo sweet!




They all thought it was pretty cool sitting on the fence...great idea Chase!



Thanks guys for bearing the cold and allowing me to capture some fun moments of your wonderful family! It was such a pleasure!

Yeager Family

This is my friend Josalynn's whole family. They met me last Sunday at Elmwood and although it was a bit chilly everyone pulled through and I got some great images. The little ones were soooo good!


Could they be any cuter!!! You'll remember Asher and Landon of my halloween pics and Asher's one year pics as well. I love how they are both watching all the crazy parents trying to get them to smile or laugh :-)
Mom with her girls



Grandma and Landon... I love Landon's face!
Thanks for being troopers Yeager family!! You're images turned out beautiful so it was well worth it!



Carlson Family

I had the pleasure of heading up to Hinton, IA to this families beautiful log home. Unfortunately it was blistering cold and windy, but they were such troopers!! We did most outside but took a break inside to warm up. Little Glen just turned four and he is all boy and I love it!! They have such a beautiful property right next to a park. Next year I must come back when the leaves are still on the trees :-) I loved this picture of them walking and Glen running full steam ahead. I also loved the branches all twinned together across the path...beautiful!


I love fields!
Happy Glen!


Grandma and Grandpa came for a few shots at the end and I love how they turned out :-) Glen really loves his Grandma and Grandpa! Oh and don't forget Tigger the cat, who INSISTED on being in the picture haha! So funny!

Thank you so much for inviting me to your home!! I hope you enjoy your pictures and can't wait to see you guys in the future!!

Roumph Family

This was the official last nice day of fall and I'm so glad I got to capture some moments of this wonderful family. I give full credit to Makayla for this pose. Like I said before, the kids I photograph are going to be better than me someday :-) And that's just fine with me!!




They call him "Chewy", isn't that soo cute!! Little Matthew is too cute for words!




I've been lacking on posting my vintage tones and I thought Madisons pic looked beautiful this way.



I LOVE how this turned out! These guys sure can rock the serious look and I love it!


Thanks for picking Boys Town and spending a beautiful afternoon with me. I hope you love your pics just as much as I do :-)

Polito Family

This was the most perfect night, location and lighting I have had to date. It was the day after day light savings time and we were definitely pushing for light but we made it! Here is Chris, Nichole, and Gus...ah they are soo adorable!



Gus was totally rocking the hat! Have I told you have much I LOVE accesories :-)

Must thank Dad for getting Gus' cute smile!


I had such a great time with you guys at Zorinsky. I hope you enjoy all your beautiful pics!!



Johnson Family :-)

I had the pleasure of taking a trip to Malcolm, NE to photograph this fantastic family. I love going to new places and they had just the perfect setting. They were so welcoming and layed back that I just can't wait to go back :-) this is big brother Dylan all smiles and freckles!!

I just adore little Drew holding mom's leg...isn't that adorable!
So cute together, I loved how all the kids had drastically different colored hair!


Drew did this pose all by himself, I tell you the little kids I photograph are pros in the making :-)



Thank you Johnson family for inviting me to your town and your beautiful home. I had such a great time and hope to see you guys in the future!

Fitch Family

Dan and I graduated from Heelan the same year. I was so excited to get an email from him to capture some moments of his family. What an adorable family! It was so fun getting to know all of you!

Alex was a champ!
This was one of the few shots I got of Claire not smiling, she is an extremely happy baby! But I loved her eyes in this shot :-)
This just makes me laugh even though it probably shouldn't because I have two very similar aged children who would do the exact same thing haha. Poor Alex didn't want a pic with his sister, and Claire sure thought it was funny!


I got to capture Claire's first ride in a baby swing. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed herself!!
It was great to spend time with you guys and catch up! You have a wonderful family! Hope you enjoy your pics!

Rhonda-Kody-Wyatt

Had to take my amazing friend Rhonda and her cutie patootie boys out for some fun pics. They are so much fun!

Big brother Kody is a wild man but so very sweet!




OMG this makes me melt, Little Wyatt is going to be a charmer :-)
Miss you guys already!!
