Mooresville Class of 2012, Senior Haley Alward

 The first thing you'll notice are her eyes.
Emerald. Sparkly.Gorgeous.

Then her adorable little smile.

But there is more here than her obvious beauty.

She's sweet, intelligent and has a future that only she will define.

You WILL see more of Haley. I promise you that! I can't take enough pictures of her...

Dannenfeldt's-Lincoln Park Zoo.

If all my sessions came wrapped like this I would truly be blessed.

Again, these are NOT professional models. They are gorgeous young family that I had the privilege to photograph a few weekends back.

It was getting muggy quick during this session but you can't tell by looking at them.

Lisa (mom), who is also an amazing author, and I met through a mutual friend and colleague (Crystal Patriarche). I had the honor of shooting a book cover for one of her Liz Fenton's latest books.

Long story short she had a gorgeous baby in January and needed updated family pics and that's that.

Now for the real reason you are see these...

The Beier's.

Nope you're not looking at a Gap catalog. This is the Beier family. It's just the way they look. Those blue eyes, blonde hair...ahhh! I could have shot images of these guys ALL DAY...but it was hot and muggy...

This photo shoot was one of "charmed" type of sessions. That are last minute, shoot-from-the-hip, worked out perfect type of deals.

Our family was headed to Chicago to do another pre-planned shoot, go to American Girl, hit up the Lego store, & get in our last summer hoorah. (BTW-my high school English teachers would be so disappointed right now...sorry Mrs. Yoke and Mrs. Yeager!)

We saw each other a few weeks before and I mentioned us coming up. She said she thought they were in town that weekend and the rest as they say...

MHS Class of 2012...Courtney

Where do I begin with this one?!

I met Courtney a few years ago when I was coaching JV softball. She is one of the most outgoing, fun loving girls I've met. She has a big heart and a BIG MOUTH! LOL! Sorry Court:)

But really, this sweetie has a bright future ahead of her. I think her personality shined through in this great session from a few weeks ago.

luv ya Court!

Mr 'K' is finally here!

You have seen a lot of this family this summer and I couldn't be happier about it!

They are gorgeous, fun, easy-going and all-around a terrific family.

This is their latest addition Koen. He's wonderful. He looks a lot like big sis, which bodes well for him!

Congratulations Bechtold family! You are truly blessed.
