Family: (n) a group of related things or people.

We had a beautiful evening to photograph this family group. The mother of this crew is going to nursing school, too, and we've enjoyed getting to know each other better as we both work our way toward getting our RN degree. I'm so thankful Susan's a year ahead of me-- she makes a great sounding board, and a good source for advice!

Thanks to everyone- Rudy, Susan, Rachel, Sarah, Seth & Aaron. I know that some of you aren't fond of having your photo taken, but you all did a great job. It wasn't so bad now, was it? ;)

'Love the light here-

So they brought along some of the cutest props ever:

See? 4 puppies, 4 children-- does it get much better than that? :)

  1. its hard to even say, but I think each post is better then the last one. each post has its own story, its own "look", with the same under lying tone- a photographer who cares about people in her photos. job well done betsy! and to the virkler family- awesome pictures!

  2. BETSY!!!!!!!!! I was so happy when I woke up and saw ours posted that quick!! Thanks so much again for taking our pics! We had an enjoyable evening (minus the bugs lol :) It's been YEARS since we've had some done! And yours are the best ever!! They came out soooo good and look fabulous! And everyone was smiling (amazingly) seeing as some people hate their picture taken.....no names.....lol
    Thanks again! I'm anxious to see the rest =)
