This little guy, Everett, is SO stinking sweet to his parents. He did this adorable thing where he’d grab mom and dad’s face- gahhh melting just thinking about it. Fear not, like every 2 year he did his fair share of running! Enjoy this lovely family’s evening- we started on their front porch (there is something so sweet about snagging a few photos at your first house as a family!) then made our way to nearby Kent Park.14_9 Rusch Family005_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family074_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family004_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family003_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family019_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family014_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family016_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family012_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family020_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family042_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family039_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family029_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family051_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family052_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family036_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family044_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family037_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family022_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family049_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family066_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family061_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family069_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family072_WEB 14_9 Rusch Family057_WEB

Divya (mom above) and I spent quite a bit of time pondering where to have their family photos, but ultimately we settled on this little section of Kent Park where the family regularly goes to toss rocks in the water, make “thunder” on the bridge, and sit at their special bench. I was so lucky to tag along, while grandma and grandpa were there too! Avi was such a smiley, giggly baby and Mina is such a fierce little girl- her spunk was so much fun to be around! I hope these photos take you back to a warm summer evening :)

These two had a perfect session! It was fun, and the light…oh that light. I’m obsessed!

AND! These two ad the most adorable idea- incorporate Jones soda into their shoot because Amanda’s new last name will be Jones! Obviously I said throw in some paper straws and that is the BEST idea ever!

Be prepared to be taken away by their cuteness.

14_8 Elizabeth & Greg Engagement Photos092_WEB

These two started the session by saying “Okay so we’re really awkward, we’re sorry.” UM I’m not sure if they’re “photo sharks”, but Elizabeth and Greg made my job so much fun! Not only did they love on each other hardcore, but they played along with all my little engagement sessions scenarios, case in point:

Carolyn: Elizabeth, I want you to stand here and just pretend you’re making some food on the stove. Greg, just sneak up behind her and surprise her!

Elizabeth: Mmm hm Oh, just making mac n cheese!

Greg: [sneaks up, gives kisses] Don’t forget about the food!

haha- these two kept the session light and fun- I can’t wait to celebrate their May wedding!

Check out some of their University of Iowa campus engagement photos!

North Liberty Iowa Family Photography, Lake Macbride Family Photos | An afternoon with Malachi!September 9, 2014

Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos030_WEB

I find myself constantly connecting the dots with my clients, its such an amazing feeling. This mama & dad were at a wedding I shot in June. Now I got to spend the afternoon with them in a oddly deserted and charming area of Lake Macbride in Solon, Iowa. Thank you to Rachel & Jake for making this sunny afternoon so fun and relaxing. Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos006_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos004_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos010_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos009_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos036_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos035_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos005_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos028_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos007_WEB Carolyn Ann Photography Solon Iowa Family Photos Lake Macbride Family Photos020_WEB

Look at that little grin- Its like Malachi always knew where to look!

At some point during a photo shoot, I usually hint…well naked babies really are the best babies. Luckily sweet Malachi agreed!
