“World’s Most Wonderful Human.”

What more could I possibly add to this description of Hannah? What an amazingly sweet and affirming way to be described by a good friend (thank you, Eleah). Hannah, you are loved. Don’t ever forget it. 🙂

Dear families with grown-up kids,

Sometimes when we think of family photos, we categorize them in our minds as something we do when the kids are little. Even senior pictures have a “right” season. But when was the last time you thought about scheduling family photos with your grown-up kids? The ones who are starting to move out, who are getting married, who are finding jobs in other towns, and who are beginning to have kids of their own?

Let me encourage you that this, too, is the perfect season to have family photos taken. It’s still so REWARDING to gather everyone together to create family photos.

You will not regret it!

Looking at the Gemmel family photos makes my own heart swell. What joy and fulfillment Ann and Tim must feel as they forge adult friendships with their grown-up children and their spouses. This is a unique season which will shift like the wind once grandbabies start to enter the picture in the next years. This, today, is worth capturing.

Family Photos

All it takes is an hour. When’s the next time you and your family are going to be all together in one place? Maybe you should consider taking a walk in the park with a photographer.

xo,

     Margaret

  • Ann Gemmel - Margaret – as always any time spent with you is life giving and you bring that same joy, enthusiasm and laughter even to your photo  graphy. You can count on lots more Gemmel shoots on the years ahead!  Grateful for your skill! And you!!!!

If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet AJ, you are missing out. She’s kind, competitive, compassionate, hard working, a Christ follower, and very family oriented. Anna Joy is a 2017 Wheaton Academy Senior who will moving on, following in her parents’ footsteps, to Wheaton College in the fall of 2017.

One pretty afternoon last fall we met over at St. James Farm to take her senior pictures. Here are a few of the images we created:

Academy Senior

AJ, I loved having the opportunity to do this with you! You know I think the world of you and cannot wait to see where life takes you. Congratulations on your WC acceptance and decision. I hope your every expectation is exceeded!

with care,

Having never had the opportunity to shoot at Herrick Lake, I was super excited when John and Jessyca decided to have their fall photo session here. We had the perfect afternoon to take a strolling loop around the lake.

Take a look…

Herrick Lake

I had the privilege of photographing John and Jessyca’s beautiful family last year, too. You can see it HERE. As I mentioned on one of their Instagram peeks, there are many ways to compliment a photographer. Coming back is HIGH on the list.

John and Jessyca,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to watch your family grow. You three are a TOTAL treat to get to know and I feel absolutely blessed to have clients as wonderful as you.
