Medin-Vaughan-Lipps Family

It is not always easy or convenient to schedule family photos and it’s even more complicated when your children are all grown and they have their own families! But oh when it happens….it’s so good and SO worth the effort! This extended family session was a Mother’s Day gift and happens to be the very first time this wife of 38 years, mother of 3, and grandma to 3 has family portraits of all of her most treasured people together! I know she will cherish these images for years to come! I can’t think of a more thoughtful and precious gift of time and love.

Emma | Class of 2015

I love this girl! There may have been a text or two prior to the session about the potential of "melting hair" due to record high heat, but thankfully we received a little break in the temps and Emma powered through her senior session looking as GORGEOUS as ever! She’s been representing Leaving A Mark Photography as a Senior Model Rep, which means I was lucky enough to photograph her twice! You can see her spring session here. Emma enjoys running, skiing, watching movies, and spending time in the sun. The fun glitter photos were taken with Emma’s best friend, Kelli, who just so happens to be a Leaving A Mark Senior - Class of 2014. I wish Kelli much luck as she starts her freshmen year at the Univ. of Montana and to Emma as she starts her senior year at Mead!!! It's going to be a great year for you both!

Emma's thoughts...

                                        I was…little now I'm almost grown up. 

I am…a girly girl 

I think…about what my future holds

I wonder…anything and everything. 

I wish…I was taller. 

I save…hundreds of pictures

I always…thank Jesus

I can’t imagine…being without my family

I believe…my future is bright

I promise…to be true to myself. 

I love…my friends and family.

Expecting Baby Harper

I saw Mandi step out of the car and was so excited to photograph her in that beautiful long maternity dress! She looked stunning! And then I noticed that Brandon was wearing PINK and perfectly coordinating with Mandi...I think someone is ready for his little girl to arrive! We hadn't met prior to the session, but Mandi's cousin is one of my dear friends from High School and I just knew we would hit it off. These two are so calm and loving with each other...only in their mid 20's, but already have been a couple for over a decade! One of my favorite things about this session was the sweet handmade items they brought along to include in the photographs...Mandi made the quilt, Grandma made the darling outfits, and the cute nursery decor were gifts they received from their baby shower. So much love, joy, and thoughtful details all in anticipation of little Harper's arrival.
