A few months ago my husband became good friends with this guy named Josh. Josh soon invited us over to eat some amazing carne asada and meet his sweet little family, and at the time his lovely wife Jenn was just a few days away from giving birth. About a week later their beautiful baby came and they named her Ellie. Of course we wanted to meet the little one, plus the Burnham family is way cool, so any excuse to visit them is good enough for us! Congrats to Josh, Jenn, and Sydney for the newest member of your family!

ellie's daddy-o looks kinda like Val Kilmer and Jesus. Both, I know are a strange mix...but it's growing on me. I really mean no harm or disrespect by this blab.

What a beautiful family. And I must say that I dig Josh's beard. Amelia, the last image is on the verge of bringing me to tears. I just love the overwhelming look of love in his eyes as he stares at his baby girl,,so sweet. I know the feeling well. So amazing. Congrats to them and their precious family.

Amelia - Truly, truly fantastic stuff. I know of no one better. You seem to capture the personality of these people in a still. How is that possible? You are a true artists. You guys are extremely talented and it's obvious that you have worked hard to sharpen your skills. I've never met them yet I feel as if I get a pretty good idea of their persona through your pics. Amazing.

I was just curious about the lenses you used for these last few shots. Do you use a reflector? Also, what did you do for the last one to compensate for the back light? I absolutely love all of your work. It's so incredibly beautiful.

This lovely family was referred to me by my fabulous sister in law Jill. Joel, the father of the Schneggenburger clan, is a co-worker of Jill and had seen the photos we shot of her and my brother a few months ago and decided to book a sitting for his family. It was a delightful afternoon to say the least:)!

Upon editing on my beloved computer my phone chimed in a twitter from you saying you had a new post up and of course I had to check,,,,, addiction. (I know,, I should get help) Anyway,, what a happy little family,, so much fun. My favorite is the shadow shot too,, I LOVE shadows. Shadows of anything,, but people and trees especially. Anyway, when can you fit my cute little family in? I want some rockin shots for HUGE canvases in my house. Whoo,, RED BULL. Very nice,, I like you! I like your pictures!

These are so fun! I am actually editing some pictures from the same location right now and I love seeing what other photographers were able to pull from the same place. These are so so fun , and defiantly show what real family is all about!

How do you get your photos to look like they're a relief sculpture? It looks like the photo is popping out! Especially the first and the one of the parents in vertical color. HOW?! It's just fantastic.

Beautiful images. All of them. But I especially LOVE the shadow picture. So unique. Awesome idea! I also love the one of the kids looking like they are running towards you holding hands with the parents in the background.
