Look at all those toes.  Have you ever stopped to wonder how many toes you have in all?

50 toes!

We can’t wait for the next opportunity we have to be blessed by your family.

Forget the sugar and spice and everything nice.


You are loaded with personality and fun.


I think you’ve got it all.  Smart, witty, and a captivating personality.


And the looks to go with it all.


Guys, don’t say anything, but last I heard, she was still available.

Your bubbling personality was contagious.

You were confident and sure of yourself, even with all of our crazy ideas.

Your outfits and accessories were impeccable.

Just add water

The prediction was for a 30% chance of rain. The sky was overcast, but it didn’t really look all that threatening. So we decided it would be fun to throw our love seat in the back of the truck and head out for some family pictures with Jayson and Megan and their children. We first stopped at the college and borrowed the grand piano to take some pictures of the children playing the piano and their violins. This was my favorite shot of that series.

When we left, we realized that the couch, sitting in the back of the pickup, had been drenched by the rain. It was still coming down, but fairly lightly, so we decided to set out for more pictures. We stopped at a field that we had found a few days before and asked permission to use. Everything was a bit wet and soggy, but they were all great sports.

You can’t really tell from the pictures, but everyone was slowly getting soaked. We decided it was now or never, so we pulled out the couch, wiped it down as well as we could, and grabbed a few more shots before calling it a day.

By this time the rain was starting to show on their clothes and hair, and everyone was starting to get a bit chilly, so we decided to head for home. Unfortunately, the car battery had died in all the fun, and we had to find someone nice enough to give us a jump start.

Micaela on the tracks

If I had to pick one word to describe you, that would be it.

Micaela in the corn

Of course, a single word would never suffice.  Beautiful and poised come to mind as well.

But you have an inner strength, a spunkiness, that shows through in your personality. Treasure that strength.

We don’t mind a bit that we got rained out last time and had to schedule another session with you.

Your family is so photogenic that it makes us look good just having you in our pictures.

We really enjoy being with your family and seeing your love and happiness.

There were 46 of you, if I counted correctly.

Each family was beautiful.

And with the laughter, and the open hearts, and the good natured relaxed attitudes you had…

We had a lot of fun

we felt, after just a few short hours with you, as if we too were a part of the Wasden clan.

Your girls have been growing so quickly.

It was a blast to work with them. They are so sweet. We can tell why you love them so much.

You two are lucky to have such tender daughters to cherish.

Enjoy these moments while they last. The next one along is sure to rock the boat a little.
