Family Favorites

In post #3 of favorite non-blogged photos from the last several months, we feature a few of our favorite family sessions!

P.S. I’m looking outside my window right now and I think we might have skipped spring and moved right to summer. Mail carrier in shorts? People driving with their windows down? What?! Happy summer!

Fall Mini-Sessions! (Update)


Hello all! After much thought, prayer, and conversation – Tamrah and I decided that I (Cory) will go to Puerto Vallarta on the missions trip in January. I’ve never been on a trip like this and am SO excited for the experiences ahead!

As far as the mini-sessions go on October 8th, nothing there has changed one bit. Tamrah and I will both be out photographing the sessions, and all of the details remain exactly the same. Down below is a slightly altered promo for the shoot (notice where it says “Cory” instead of “Tamrah”… pretty clever huh?)


*Here’s the original post (written by Tamrah)*

So, guess what?!? No, I haven’t decided to give up coffee, silly. I’m going on a trip. A very special trip, in fact. I’m planning to head to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this January. And no, it’s not to get a tan (as anyone who knows me knows, my skin doesn’t take too kindly to sunbathing).

Actually, I have the great opportunity to go on a missions trip! I get to spend time caring for the kiddos there, distributing shoes, showing love. And the best part? I get to take my camera, document the trip, and share it with the world. I get to go on this spectacular adventure with the purpose of using my camera to show what people are doing down there to help and love people.

When some people hear the words Puerto Vallarta, they almost instantly say, “Oh, my! It’s beautiful there! Such a great place to vacation!” And while I’m sure that’s true, as in any place that is beautiful and exotic and full of tourists, there are people who are not able to share in the wealth of a beautiful place like that. I get to be part of a group from my church who is going to go to share love with those less fortunate.

I plan to partner with a lovely vintage couch to raise funds for my trip to Mexico. How, you ask? Well, check this out:


And you, my friends, can be a family/couple/individual sitting upon a couch on a field. I’m truly excited for this opportunity. Not only can I raise money for this trip, but I get to do something I’ve always wanted to do: photograph sessions with a lovely, vintage couch in the middle of a big, open, gorgeous field. Not to mention conditions look promising for peak fall color.

Session slots will be available every 45 minutes and will be 30 minutes long. Sessions are $200. Normally, we don’t provide a CD of high resolution images with our sessions, but because of the nature of these sessions, they will be included in the session fee of $200. These high-resolution files can be used for Christmas cards, prints or any other personal use. {In case of rain, Saturday, October 15th is the back-up date}.

Gracias! Mucho amor, que Dios los bendiga!



We now interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you a little taste of cake. And a taste of what we Ryans do in our spare time…

A little project we’ve been working on for our kitchen (picture 20×20 gallery wraps, lined up horizontally across our kitchen wall):

The coolest family I know. Who makes a cake like that? I can’t wait to see the prints in your kitchen!!!

Wren and Kaj

What do you get when you combine two kids with awesome personalities, a beautiful home, and parents who love their children immensely? Meet Wren and Kaj. We’ve been following these guys since we photographed the birth of Kaj and it’s been amazing to watch them grow! Love these guys!

Johnson Family

We really like photographing at the Guthrie because of the light, the endless possibilities and all of the nooks that are great for exploring. The Johnson family’s session was at that very location and all of the kids were awesome… they really embraced the space. What fun!
