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.

Little Logan

So first I have to tell you about Logan's mommy, Michelle. Michelle is my walking advertising. She tells absolutely EVERYONE about me. She buys gift certificates for her friends. She's constantly following my blog and facebook to hear all about my new sessions. And probably most of all gives me all the praise I need to keep doing what I love. To think we met 2 years ago at bible study pretty much explains it :-)

Michelle I cannot thank you enough for loving what I do and being proud to give the gift of LE photography. I'm so glad I was able to capture your ridiculously cute little man. Dale and Logan are so lucky to have you!

Ok now on to this ridiculous cuteness I was talking about...seriously...check out those beautiful eyes!





Everytime I ever look at this pic it will remind me of what happened just after, he spit up allllllll over mom and himself. It was more like projectile and seriously hilarious because I couldn't even capture the moment dad and I were laughing so hard! Poor guy had a rough time getting through the session in less than 2 shirts :-) He gets Best Spit Up Award, poor Mom!
He did not like my first bucket but loved my second....too cute!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for coming back to get some moments of Logan. I hope we get to do some when #2 comes, capturing these unforgettable moments is priceless! Love you guys :-)

Easton's ONE!!!

I still can't believe he's one!! He is such a sweetheart and just adorable as you will see. This family has the most beautiful eyes, all three of them have just glittering blue eyes! Enjoy Mr. Easton and his mommy and daddy....

I LOVE this pose and to think he did it all by himself, makes me :-)



How cool is this idea? They all had shirts with wings on the back...I......LOVE........IT!!!!!
Amber & Austin...thank you for letting me capture your family. Love you guys!!

Landon & Ella

Landon & Ella's mom wanted some pictures for their playroom. A vintage tea party and a soccer session were in order! Besides the 40mph winds we had a blast!!!



She has the greatest chuckle and throws her head back. We picked the perfect place for this and the lighting was absolutely stunning!
I <3 him...I chased him around and he thought I was pretty cool!


I could have taken pictures of her all night! This outfit was ADORABLE!!

I heart faces - Week 16 "Collages" Photo Challenge

Just love the photo challenge at I heart faces this week, I LOVE COLLAGES!!

I feel so blessed that I captured this moment of my little man. He was sitting down doing a chalk drawing and I was coming over to get a shot from above, when he jumped up and just started busting a move!! Luckily I had my nice camera out and was there to capture each move. I just love it, because it's completely him. He loves music and dancing..."Mom check out my moves!"

Joe...Senior Rep 2011

I am sooo proud to introduce you to my little bro, Joe :-) He is my 2011 senior rep for Heelan in Sioux City, IA. We had a BLAST!! I mean he brought all the gear for a complete Mat Kearney inspired session and he rocked it!

I took him to my favorite covered parking lot. He loved it! Then he had this rockin' idea...I only wish I came up with it!

He has the greatest closed smile :-) And lips...how come I didn't get any of those!!!



Looks like a CD cover image to me :-)
Throw in a little JCrew/BR action and you get a sweet summer outfit...love the colors :-)
This was not planned. He came charging for me (well not charging but you know what I mean) and I caught this one, but I absolutely LOVE it because it's different.
Clouds in the glasses make me smile! His laugh makes me smile!!
Joe..thanks so much for being my Heelan rep!! I can't believe you're going to be a senior :*)

LOVE YOU!

Payton-5 days old!


Miss Payton was just a gem to work with!! She slept the ENTIRE time and could have cared less when I moved her :-) And sooo pretty to boot!

Forgive my many watermarks...I'm trying to decide what I like, want..ugh!



And don't forget big sis, Josie. You'll remember her from late summer. She is adorable and I LOVED spending time with her! I reminded mom that 18 mons-2 1/2 years is the hardest to photograph. Josie is 20 months now and a ball of energy. She sure made mom and dad work hard :-) I just LOVE this one I snapped quick outside, she had the most adorable dress!!
Ali & Lane....thank you for letting me capture your girls!! They truly are precious and you are so blessed....ENJOY your sneak peek!
