Sweetheart that she is, Sarah Schanke gifted her family a portrait session! From Sarah’s stunning resemblance to her mother to the candid group shots, it was such a treat to get them on camera!
Mother’s Day is just a few days away!! And if you think running your own business is hard, try motherhood on for size. There is something to be said about all of the strong and beautiful mothers I know in my life.

From now through Mother’s Day, I am offering a special package for you to receive the ultimate pampering treatment! Or, if your loved one is reading this, consider treating Mom to an unforgettable afternoon.
If you’re anything like me, you want to capture all of the big moments in your family’s life. Your walls and tables may be adorned with framed photographs, your shelves lined with photo albums, and each photograph holds a memory to be re-lived when you look at them.
If you’re also like me, you like to switch things up every once in awhile.

Hey there first-time mom. Yes, you. This one is for you.
So, the nine months of pregnancy are over. You are most likely excited about that. No more waddling. Yay! And now you have this precious time with your newborn baby. It’s total bliss, right? Ha! Just kidding. It is HARD AS HELL!!!
