summer knobloch photography

I've been a big fan of photographer Summer Knobloch ever since I came across her website and blog last year. She had me right away when I read this on her website:
"fun. fresh. emotional. real.

These are the words my clients use to describe my style. No studio lights, no fake furniture or backdrops. I want to capture who your child really is... missing front tooth, messy hair, or ice cream covered mouth... your child will only be this age once. Capture them. Not just their outside appearance, or a forced smile. Capture their spirit. I'll do that for you. It's what I do. It's what I love."
I knew this was exactly who I wanted to take portraits of my family! And last week I finally had the great pleasure of not only meeting Summer but also having a really fun, relaxed photo session. My children never cooperate for pictures, but they absolutely adored Summer and are still talking about how much fun it was. Summer posted a sneak peek of our family portraits on her blog, and I couldn't believe how well they turned out!

Summer also took some pictures of just me so I could finally have a professional photograph to add to the "about" page on my website. Having my picture taken by myself is not at all comfortable for me, but again, Summer was great, and I'm so glad to finally have a picture on that page!
