Bennett


On Tuesday afternoon, I met Bennett and his mom and brother out at Bever Park in Cedar Rapids to take his 2 year old photographs.  I had a blast chasing him around the playground!!  Thank you Mickala for choosing Visions Photography!  🙂 

 

Big Brother!  🙂

As always, hope you are having a great day! And stay positive! :)

A Tribute to 2 Furry Family Members – Smokey and Chief


It was a tough 90 days for me and started on the December 19, 2009 the day I lost Smokey after 13 great years together!  Then on March 25, 2010 I lost Chief!  Both to cancer, but different types of cancer.  I miss you guys but I know you are still with me in my heart and soul! 🙂  See ya both again someday at the “Bridge!”  In the meantime, have fun playing together!  🙂 

Smokey my fuzzy, sometimes goofy bestest friend ever, will always be with me and he has truly touched my life in a very very special way!  From the first time he looked up at me he instantly won me over with those wonderful eyes of his and that special loving look of his! :)  If you care to read more about Smokey, you can do so here:  http://wp.me/Pr4IS-bl

This is one of my favorite pics of Smokey!  🙂

Chief was a very special dog, companion, friend, teacher, mentor, family member, who I shared a very special bond with! He lived a great life for 11 1/2 years, he touched a lot of lives, and was loved by all that met him! Both my son and myself fell in love with him the first time we met him. This was so common, he was just one of those dogs that you instantly fall in love with, not because of the beauty he was graced with, and he was beautiful, but for that wonderful energy he had about him!

Chief in his lifetime got to do and see so much, more than lots of dogs and even more than some people get to experience. He was a Therapy Dog who helped a lot and I mean a LOT of people.

Chief had such a wonderful calming and healing energy to him! He got to work with cancer patients, elderly in nursing homes, adults and children alike! He helped many to retrieve their lives by giving them hope and love! He was just that way! Always giving what he could give!

My favorite picture of Chief, where he liked to be…out in the snow and the deeper the better!  LoL

And this next couple pictures are very special to me also!  🙂  

Smokey and Chief together, they became really good buds!!

April is going to be “Pet Month” at Visions Photography!


April is the kick off of an exciting new period for Visions Photography and we decided to start things off with one of our favorite subjects…….PETS!!!!   Yes those lovable, adorable, cute and cuddly, sometimes goofy fuzzy members of our families!  🙂 

We will be introducing “BELOVED” pet sessions!  A fun way to get some great candid shots of you and you furry best friend!  🙂  We believe candid shots and the resulting MOMENTS are the best type of photography especially when combined with great photographic technique….something you just don’t see a lot of these days!  🙂 

PET MAKEOVERS! – Will include a grooming session followed by a photo shoot of your pet! 

BIRTHDAY PARTIES for PETS!  Yes they are family members and have birthdays too!  🙂  Will include pet friendly “treats” for your babies, as well as birthday hats and includes party planning!   We can do as much or as little as you wish!  🙂

As always, hope you are having a great day! And stay positive! :)

Amelia and Joseph


On December 10 I had the priviledge of photographing the third wedding for the Gerber family!  It was a priviledge to be a part of this wedding and all the other weddings I have photographed for the Gerbers.  It was just really nice to actually know people at the wedding and be able to catch up with everyone on what has been happening in thier lives. 

Her sister Amanda was married during a lunar eclipse….and while we couldn’t see the eclipse here in Iowa, there was also an eclipse on December 10.  🙂  so cool! 

Amelia and Joseph were married at 1st United Methodist Church in Marion, and the reception was at Touch of Class.

Thank you to Amelia and Joe for choosing Visions Photography to photograph your wedding!  We had a blast!

Special thanks to Jaime Moquin for your always great 2nd camera work, and to Stubby Webb for your help with some of the post work on these!
