I love this family to pieces so I was thrilled to photograph them for a Lamoille ranch family session! They wanted something that captured their family at the base of the Ruby Mountains and that also featured their cattle in the background. We made it happen despite the wind!
John and Susan are the proud owners of J.M. Capriola in Elko, Nevada. Their store is recognized for custom saddle-making and it is also the home of Garcia Bits and Spurs. If you need gear for your ranching needs, J.M. Capriola is the place! It is a family owned and operated business for 90 years! Traditions and the importance of family are at the top of their list! Being able to photograph families that hold their traditions close to their hearts is something I cherish!
I wanted to share some of the images from their session that took place on a ranch in Lamoille, Nevada.
I love this view!
One of the things about evening sessions is you run out of sunlight quickly! Sometimes, the most amazing sunset will appear out of nowhere! That’s when the magic happens!
Such a gorgeous couple!
The most important part about having family portraits taken is PRINTING the images! We take pride in creating wall art pieces families can enjoy for years! Check out this wall design that features three family images from this Lamoille ranch family session.
We combined this family session with a styled session for Miss Audrey and her horse. CLICK HERE to see more of her images on our blog.
I’ve been lucky to photograph the Walthers family many times over the last handful of years. It has been so much fun to watch their five boys grow! I met them when their third son, Drew, was just a baby! Now he is and 8th grader! Time sure flies! Fast forward several years and it’s time for a new chapter and a new beginning for this beautiful family!
New Chapter, New Beginning
One thing I have always admired about the Walthers family is the fact that they always make time to update their family portraits! This time was extra special. Hunter, the oldest son, recently graduated high school and was gearing up to head to the Philippines for a two year mission for his church. Two years is quite the length of time. This marks a new chapter and a new beginning for this amazing family. It kind of changes their dynamic a bit. Why not capture this special time with an updated portrait? We did just that!
I wanted to share a few of the images from their recent session…
Perfect time to grab a beautiful image of Mom & Dad…
Canvas Wall Portraits
Canvas wall prints are a great way to display your family portraits. They are timeless and traditional. I love hanging wall portraits in places where they can be enjoyed time and time again! Check out this display…
Walthers Family Color Palette
I love how the Walthers Family chose clothing that fits their personality and style! The colors worked so well together! All the credit goes to Melody. In a house full of boys, she always has it together when it comes to the details! Here is a sample of the colors they chose…
I love photographing families! I get to be a part of a moment in time that will be treasured for years. It doesn’t get any better than that. The stories that connect them are amazing as well! The Hemmert Family is one family I am grateful to have photogaphed.
The Hemmert’s recently had their portrait taken with us. I met them through a representative with the Tyler Robinson Foundation, an organization who’s mission is “to strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of pediatric cancer diagnosis by offsetting out-of-pocket life expenses.” TRF was created by the Imagine Dragons in the name of Tyler Robinson who touched countless lives before passing away from a rare form of cancer. This organization is very dear to the Hemmert family because their son, Emmerson, was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was two. The Tyler Robinson Foundation became a part of their journey. Last year, the Hemmert Family had the opportunity to attend the Imagine Dragons concert in Las Vegas. They even met the band! You can read the article in People and see their photograph taken with the band HERE.
Emmerson is doing well. He underwent ten months of intensive treatment. He is in remission and despite his ongoing treatments until the year 2020, he is swimming, playing soccer, and busy being an active boy. I will always be grateful to have met the Hemmert’s and to have been given the opportunity to take their family portrait.
Family is precious. The time we have together and the moments we share are priceless. Anthony Hemmert told me that their experience with Emmerson “made them focus on the small things and enjoy everything in life.” Such great advice! Thank you Hemmert’s for letting me be a part of your amazing family!
