We love our dogs!  Duke our newest and youngest, is my Service Dog.  He is a Domesti-Pups dog and was trained in Lincoln Nebraska.

Duke works with me while I do daily outings and photography sessions, he’s become an important member of our pack.  Jason and I also have two other dogs.  Luka who was my first Service Dog, and Hazel who is a Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue.  Actually all of our dogs were rescue dogs at one time or another.

She is a Beautiful Baby!

 

She is a beauty, that is what we all say, 

It isn’t that often that you can’t turn away.

Blessings abound, and delight forms at her sounds, she coos and cuddles, and has all of the right snuggles.

Her bright eyes just shine, and she hardly ever whines, she is soft as can be, and smells like fresh baby.

Don’t miss out on this, the time goes by so fast, the tiny bits grow up, while the nights you stay up start slipping into a routine,

the next thing you know she is 16.

Big cuddles and snuggles, wiggles, tickles, and peek-A-boo’s, the time is so short, of course, this isn’t new news.

So take the time when you can to love her all up, she precious for sure, you can never get enough.

Baby Petra Images by Jason and Tonja 2013

She drifts off in the arms of those who love her, only to wake up from the dream as she is graduating. Baby Petra a future full of dreams.

 

 

She wakes and sleeps, she cries and smiles,

her softness carries,

The nights are day the day is night,

the road winds in between,

The brave protector the beautiful glue,

the older one watches,

Acknowledgement in her breath.

For Petra

Her might is in her pint, her strength bellows in the night, grown from a seed she has been born, with dew drops on her feet.  ~T

All dressed up and no where to go.

 

 

She’s ran the race, now it is time to rest, another day awakens with the sun, she will laugh and run, with shiny shoes, and dance until she is done.~T

We just adore little Petra, she couldn’t be more perfect, 10 fingers 10 toes.
We are honored to have been her first photographers as well as her aunt and uncle!

Blessings,

Jason and Tonja

beautiful baby and such sweet images!

Kyle Henry - December 9, 2013 - 8:19 pm

Such a precious baby. Love the images and love the poetic words to compliment it!

Keely Julson - December 9, 2013 - 8:38 pm

such a cute baby girl! Love the poetry and images!

Nebraska Treasures!

 

 

 

 

Bright & Smiling

 

Two beautiful girls spent a day with their grandparents!  Grandma was sneaky and invited us over to take some pictures!

She likes to surprise her daughter and son in law.  What a glorious day it was, we arrived to the girls outside making the snow fall from a flowering tree.

Darling Girls

Nebraska girls at heart, they are full of love and independence all at the same time!  Time slips by quietly and soon they are headed out the door for bigger things.

There is nothing quite as nice as time spent with Grandparents who spoil you, love you, and dote on your every desire.

Days like this make for memories etched in their minds.  They will grow up, older and still have memories of their matching outfits and the kindness they shared one summer day.

Don’t blink.  For if you do the time will pass and life will be on to other dreams.  For now, memories are locked in images that will be forever able to tell their story.

Zoey Beautiful!!

Nebraska Beautiful! I am the big! Beautiful Nebraska Families

Nebraska Beautiful!

Nebraska Beautiful.. I am the little.

 

 

 

 

It is that moment when you reach for the phone to give us a call.  Don’t let the distractions of life stop you from preserving moments.  They are gone far to soon.

Blessings,

Tonja and Jason

Fernanda, Wicked Smart Beauty!

 

 Wicked Smart Beauty!

 

 

It has been a while to say the least.  She was here last year and we created these gorgeous images.  Of course I’ve had them finished for a long time now, and somehow holding on to them without sharing them felt a little bit like she was still here.

I don’t know about you, but when the three pieces of your heart grow up, and live in different parts of the globe, holding onto a little bit of them makes life a little nicer.

However I just realized it has been forever and I should share her gorgeous images.  I probably should have a long time ago.

So apologetically I am sharing these gorgeous images now.

Life is funny, we have hosted three exchange students over the years, two of them are sisters.  We are equally proud of each of them, and we see ourselves represented in their lives in different ways.  We hold dear the memories of the time they were here, and the times that we get to visit them or they are able to visit us.  It is a beautiful world.

One of our beauties came to visit us after we had begun taking pictures.  We of course plan to capture each one of them when we see them next.  =D

Fernanda (The Baby)  came to visit.  She is an adjavagada or attorney, she is passionate, convicted, and energetic.

When you hold the secrets of life in your fingertips, you can dance among the stars.

 

 

 

Life is so sweet when what you do makes it a little bit better.   Fernanda is a champion of looking for the best option, creating the best outcome, and delivering what she does with everything she has.
Her determination and passion are contagious, you can’t help knowing that she makes a difference.

Wicked Smart Beauty

 

 

Where she walks her shoes leave her mark, others will know where she has been.   She sparkles when she talks about something, her enthusiasm is contagious, she is a fighter and a beautiful champion.  You can’t help but be better for knowing her and having her in your life you feel richer.

Life in Law

She is engaged of course to a handsome and smart fella.  We couldn’t be happier for our girl.  She is making a difference one case at a time.

 

Blessings,   Tonja

Glamour and Creativity Run Freely in St. Louis!

 

 

Lights Camera Action!

 

 

It isn’t often that you find in front of you an artistically minded athlete!   Creativity is something that I often find an abundance of, and it is often found in doses that many people do not comprehend.  This session was an exception, I was able to share and idea and she brought it to life.  Kendra is a dancer/athlete/model.  She has fierceness within her and a determined spirit.

Working with her was a pleasure, her body flows fluidly with the years of practice she has trained it to cooperate with her mind.  She wasn’t afraid to push the envelope and create the non traditional.  When she would work through each idea she gave each jump her all.

Fierce Flying

I don’t think that tired is in Kendra’s vocabulary.  Commitment to her craft and a desire to partner with her photographer to create the best images of each idea.

When I saw what she had trained her body to be able to do I was full of ideas.  Normal didn’t make an appearance this day at our session.

I was excited about her images from the moment I visioned them.  I was excited to finish them out and create something I hadn’t shown before.  Something wild, interesting, and a bit out of this world.

I was a little bit nervous to create something different, you never know how people will respond.  In the end, I am quite proud and thrilled that Kendra had the courage to push herself beyond and become the vision I shared with her.

It takes some trust to put yourself out there like that!

Of course she is amazing and beautiful too.  It isn’t just every pretty face that can walk in a room and hold your attention.   I was lucky to be able to spend some time in a shooting bay with her.  Dancing has been her passion for years so of course she was used to working hard.

Kendra is a beautiful dancer, and committed performer.

 

 

It is fun to remember your childhood, I grew up loving dance similar to Kendra, however I have no doubt that she is much better at it than I ever was.  Working with someone who has similar experiences, you are able to really understand what you are asking them to do, as well as it is so much easier for them to follow the instructions that you are asking of them.

It is like you can both speak the same language and there is no translation needed.  I was fortunate that Kendra  was able to understand what I asked her to do, and I am grateful that she was able to place her trust in me to go out of her normal range and do somethings that were different.

Gorgeous Fierceness

Creativity can take many different forms, it shares many different emotions and experiences.  Dance is a gift that transcends language and time.

She has a fire with in her soul and she dances from dusk til dawn, her style is all her own.

Thanks Kendra for sharing your time and talents with me!

Nice!, I’m a huge fan of dramatic lighting.
