Senior Photos.....Remember yours?

 Senior photos.  Do you remember getting yours taken?  Where are they? When you have a chance, pull them out and look through them, I dare you.  When you're done oohing and aahing over how young you look, think of your achievements that you've accomplished since then.  Aging isn't a bad thing when you've accomplished so much! 

My cousin needed a photo for the yearbook.  I hope one of these works.....

He loves playing the guitar, electric and acoustic.

This last one is most like him.  He's super fun to be around and extremely easy to photograph! 

Hopefully some day he will pull these out and think of everything he's done and everywhere he's gone since now.  The best part about one thing ending is that another is beginning!

Blueberries and belly time

It's been a crazy couple of months!  Wesley has started rolling over and eating baby oatmeal.  And we've moved to the Madison area!  A whole new world of opportunities await us!  There's a park just a couple blocks down the street, there's lots of people riding bikes, and there are lots of neat new places to explore! 

This coming weekend I get the opportunity to take one of my cousins senior photos!  I'm very excited to see what shots we'll get and where we will end up!  The sky is the limit, as is life after high school!  Hopefully by next week I'll have some edited and ready for a sneak peek! 

Wes started rolling over a week ago, and now can sleep on his tummy.

Wes is already 2 months old!

My little Wesley is two months old already!  Here's a few snapshots from the last couple weeks...

Wesley and Grandpa are sleeping in on a Saturday.

Wes loves snuggling on his Daddy!

What big eyes you have!

This is a photo of Wes taken in his great Grandpa and Grandma's rocking chair.

My first baby, and consequently my first baby photo shoot.

It's official.  I'm a mom.  And I'm happier than I've ever been.  Today I took some time and photographed my son, Wesley.  He was super patient with me and he even made a few faces at the camera.  :)  He's a month old already and this is the first time I've photographed him with any camera besides the one on my phone.  I think they turned out rather well!

Wes is wearing my wedding band.  It's a bit big on him.

He really is my favorite person in the whole world.  Although he's already growing like a weed!  Pretty soon he'll be learning his ABC's, tying his shoes, and graduating from college.

The future Mr. & Mrs. Bartelt

This winter I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin Chris and his beautiful fiance Stephanie for their engagement photos.  They braved the cold and we had a blast taking some photos at some secret family places.  I think they turned out great!  Later this summer I will also have the pleasure of photographing them tying the knot!

I love the little snowflakes that were coming down! 

This is in front of the house where Chris' grandma was born.

Introducing...The Revaks!

 In August 18, of 2012, I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding of one of my cousins, Ben, and his lovely fiance Brenna!

They had a gorgeous outdoor wedding that suited them perfectly!   Below are a few snapshots of the day.  I couldn't pick a favorite, so I uploaded a few.  Enjoy!
