So I want you to know.....some shoots you can do literally on a dime....with used clothing, a blanket and a garage.  You don't need to break the bank to get a great image.  I can't wait to see this as a large black and white framed canvas in their living room.  Thanks Koopmans...for trusting me when I said, "I think we are gonna shoot this in the garage."  :-)

Meet Emily https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2017/10/meet-emily Oh my goodness...I just can't believe Emily is a senior!  I was there when she was born and I remember long walks with her mom about what we thought it would be like to be a mom.  Then Emily blew up our world with love, joy and an abundance of gratefulness.  What an honor it was to be a part of her senior photos.  She had great props with sentimental meaning.  And there was this chair, that has been in her family for years and years and has writing on the bottom side.  Now Emily's mom can add to the list of ways the chair was used and write, "Emily's Senior Photos."  Even the family dog photo bombed the shoot and added some giggles.

Meet Charlie... https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2017/9/meet-charlie This is Charlie. I met him doing a commercial shoot in Grinnell, Iowa. He was was about to get in his old truck and I told him he was cute. Well, that sparked an hour conversation that I will hold dear to my heart.

He had a huge stuffed Tigger in his passenger seat....among other random items, Taco Johns cheese sauce, stuffed animals, McDonalds food bags, tools, etc. And in the bed of his truck were a couple of large branches from a tree.

We talked about the farmer's market in Grinnell, God, his daughter rejecting the used Tigger from a garage sale for his grandchild, {which I told him I did with my dad too....eeewww...germs....ha!} and his wife who passed away 9 years ago. He talked about taking care of her during the last two years of her life. So very sad but they shared 57 years of marriage and love.

Then he invited me around the other side of his truck in the back seat. He opened the door and there was a pile of about 30 handmade canes. Some with bike handle bar tops and funny rubber bottoms. Some had twists and turns and others straight. All colors, styles and sizes. He said that he makes them for those in need. It took all of me to keep it together when he told me to pick one out for myself....to give away. I told him I'd love to keep it for myself to remember him by because I was pretty sure I too would need a cane someday. He showed me how to choose the right size and insisted I took one.

I hugged him goodbye and brought it to my car and cried the whole way. He reminded me of my dad. He. Was. Adorable. I hope you have the pleasure of meeting him someday or using one of his canes.

Thanks Charlie.....for the cane and for reminding me about the amazing breathtaking thing we call the human race.

Joyful, Joyful Paige https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2017/8/joyful-joyful-paige What an honor and pleasure it was to photograph Paige.  She was filled with so much joy!  At first it was giggles with her mother, and soon turned into a smile that could light up the sky tomorrow during the eclipse.  It was fun to explore Minneapolis as I had not been able to do that yet.  Izzie's Ice Cream was super accommodating and they grabbed some ice cream from their back room that was the perfect color! You can't help but smile when looking through these photos....or at least, want to eat ice cream!  Enjoy!

The Dans Company https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2017/8/the-dans-company I had the pleasure of visiting The Dans Company in Pella to photograph these beautiful and adorable dancers at Amanda's new studio space.  She wanted artistic artwork for her walls and images for her website.  It was so much fun to create with these dancers....I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Carter, the Triple Threat https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2017/4/carter-the-triple-threat This is Carter B.  He can act.  He can sing. He can dance.  
I've known Carter's parents since our days at Valleyfair...I actually set them up and guess what, they married and had two amazing kids and Carter is one of them.  So great to connect with them again since we moved back to the Twin Cities.  I see both Kim and Greg is this bundle of talent.  Can't wait to see what the future holds for Carter. This is a shoot for his upcoming trip to New York, new headshots and his brand new amazing website that will be launched soon. Don't worry, I'll post again when he goes live.  Enjoy the many faces of this guy.....Carter B.

Jacob + Sarah https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2016/2/jacob-sarah Jacob + Sarah were a pleasure to photograph.  They had recently got engaged and that very same night, ate at Centro in Des Moines.  So that was an obvious place to start our session.  It was a Sunday so they were closed so we had the outside to ourselves.  I wish them God's blessing on their upcoming marriage.

Meet Senior Sarah https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2016/2/meet-senior-sarah This is Sarah.  Her and her mom worked together to come up with some fantastic wardrobe options.  I had a session a couple years ago with Sarah and her sister so they knew what to expect and what they wanted to accomplish at her senior session.  We split up the sessions into two....one summer and one fall.  Loved our time together and wish Sarah the best in her endeavors....

Meet the "M' Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2016/1/meet-the-m-family I've been photographing this family for years.  Every year in September, I get the call from mom and
we start talking color schemes for wardrobe.  And each year, she rocks her family's wardrobe and it makes my
job that much easier!  Oh, and by the way, the whole family might as well be models...so again...my job is simple.

Isabelle https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2015/9/isabelle I met Isabelle from St. Paul a few days ago and had the privilege to get to know her and her lovely quirky facial expressions {which seemed to only happen when the camera was away from my face} and her joyful tip toe walk and her simplistic style.  {I mean, who needs to worry about fashion with those eyebrows!}  Although our time was brief, I had a tiny glimpse into the soul of this funny young lady who is gonna go places!  Good luck in your senior year Isabelle!

Deja Vu https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2015/4/deja-vu So Sydney, one of my favorite actresses, was in town from LA to film a commercial and we were able to schedule a headshot session.  Her agent's favorite photo of Sydney was a headshot I took almost 4 years ago and so they asked us to recreate the shot again.  Luckily Syd had the dress with her and I found the flower we used and shot it again.  I love when Sydney lets me fiddle with her hair and change it up a bit.  Sad to see her leave but THRILLED that I was able to shoot her again.  Below you will see the shot from 4 years ago and then the most recent version of it.

Meet Dominic https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2015/4/meet-dominic Dominic came to the studio to get head shots.  It's always refreshing to see someone in front of the camera for the first time who knows how to pose and change their expressions.  I remember when I was little and wanted to become a famous actress….I would become different characters in front of the mirror…..Linda Carter's famous Wonder Woman spin, Shields and Yarnell fancy moves, The Brady Bunch, Gone With The Wind or Dr. Zhivago, etc….those were the days indeed.

Neighborhood Builders https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2015/3/neighborhood-builders I love builders...I love to see what homes they create.  I also love the building process myself and my family has built three homes.  But my favorite thing is when the builder understands how the homeowner will actually use the house.  When there is special thought and time that is put into building the home with functional and sometimes beautiful aspects.....I get really excited.  I love a efficient home with a good foundation. Neighborhood Builders is one of my clients and they add lovely aspects to their homes to make them more functional.  When that tall cupboard door is just a cupboard door but a secret passage to a big fat pantry with a chalkboard wall.  LOVE!  Pure Love!

Meet Brian https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/10/meet-brian Meet Brian.  He's pretty much a rockstar when it comes to seniors.  He was on Homecoming court and is on the football team. "Super Cool" in my book.  But the best part about Brian was despite of all of his accomplishments, he is laid back and a very kind-hearted guy.  His relationship with his sister was inspiring.  I asked them if they fought when they were little and they said they had never fought with each other. Brian even wanted his sister in some of his photos. How great is that?!?!

The S. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/10/the-s-family This is the S. Family. "S" stands for: Super, Silly, Stylish, Sensational, Spectacular & Sweet.  Another year with the Smiths.  Its been a pleasure to watch these kiddos grow.  This year's shoot involved a hockey stick, some acorns and a few bribes.  It's always a pleasure spending time with this family.

Red and Green Dinosaur https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/10/red-and-green-dinosaur Here are some adorable images of my boys with their cousins.  We were taking photos for grandma & grandpa's Christmas card.  As we were going thru all the clothes to pick out wardrobe options, Will, the youngest, comes up the stairs in this dinosaur costume and I said "That's it!!!  There's our theme!  Red and Green Dinosaur!!!"  So needless to say, we had the best time ever.  The other cousins smiled the entire time and Will got a whole bunch of attention....which was "win-win" situation for everyone.  The whole session was complete in ten minutes or less.  Perfect!  Now we are hoping that grandma & grandpa are as thrilled as we are!

Meet the L. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/10/meet-the-l-family Oh my, did we have a great time.  The weather was beautiful and their kids were even more beautiful.  They were the most obedient family I've had for a while.  When I said jump, they jumped….literally!  And after our shoot, they made dinner for me and my family and offered me a glass of wine. Obedient AND hospitable.  Yup, my clients are the BEST!

Meet Katie https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/10/meet-katie Katie is a senior and has been nominated to be on the Tulip Queen Court.  I wish her the best of luck with her Tulip Time adventure.  It's a lot of hard work to prepare for something like that.  I was a judge last year and enjoyed watching these young women answer tough questions with such maturity and grace.   

We had a fantastic time during our "half session." Be looking out for our next session where she'll have some wavy hair and some autumn colors.  My favorite shot is the one against the wall where it looks like she has an angel wing.  Sweet!

Syd and Claire https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/10/syd-and-claire I know, I know…you've seen so many photos of Sydney and Claire.  But these will probably be the last for a while!  One has moved to LA and the other to Chicago.  We decided to do a stylized shoot before they left.  We grabbed props from my house, wardrobe from Deja Vu {a local consignment store} and a room full of creative minds.  We had a lovely time in the sunset and I sure hope I can have the privilege once again to take photos of either of these beauties...

Meet Jessica https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/10/meet-jessica I've known Jessica since she was five years old.  This young woman of faith is beautiful inside and out.  It was nice to spend some time with her joking about her parents and her older brothers and then she told me something that was the sweetest thing.  


You see, Pella schools keep a few pieces of schoolwork each year from kindergarten until the students' senior year.  Then at the beginning of their senior year they give this memory box to the student.  It is basically their academic life in a box.  Well, Jessica had gone through hers recently and when she was in elementary school, she answered some simple questions about her life.  One of the questions was…."Who is the most exciting person in your life?  And she wrote down my name!??!  MY name!  Wha!??!  When she told me that, I about started bawling…  I was just so thrilled to be a part of that little academic box of memories.  Super duper sweet.  And now she's all grown up!  Wow!

Meet The H. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/9/meet-the-h-family I had already given you a sneak peek into this family's session so here are a few more shots.  This family was so great about piling into the car, driving 1/2 mile, and getting out of car, then repeating that all over again.  I love all the various locations we shot at.  Dad climbed a tree, dog was tied up to a fire hydrant, family played catch every moment we weren't taking photos, great sense of humor....awesome family!  And I need to mention that mom did a fantastic job with wardrobe and sending me ideas.  Enjoy!

I had such a great time with this gang.  My little grasshopper guy and my chubby cheeks smiley little girl.  What a beautiful family inside and out.

A Grasshopper Journey https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/9/a-grasshopper-journey Oh my goodness, prepare yourself to go on a journey with the cutest little boy ever….in search of a grasshopper.  This was a 20 minute search and find and drop and find and rescue and find and it reminded me of my boys and their wonder of nature.  Enjoy!


"I think I see a grasshopper Mommy!"


"Yes, I think it's right here."



"Don't you see it?  It's right here."



"Is this it?  Oooo…nope…."



"I almost got it!"



"This guy is fast mom…..but I'm gonna get him!"



"I got him!!!!!"



"See mom!"


"Oh no!  I dropped him!"


"Come here you little bugger."


"Gotcha!  Not letting you go this time."


"You ok?  Hello? Mr. Bugger?  Why aren't you moving?"

Meet The M Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/9/meet-the-m-family Rockstar Family….yup…all rockstars.  Mom does such a great job each year with wardrobe….I'm thinking of hiring her for some of my other families.  This was the best shoot ever because they came to Pella and we ate at George's Pizza afterwards.  It was nice to catch up and of course we all loved making our own ice cream cones after dinner.  My son showed Mason, their oldest, how to make an ice cream cone 10 inches high.  I sure wish I brought my camera into George's just for that…but trust me…..at least ten inches high.

Joe and his Joy https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/6/joe-and-his-joy Our friends Joy and Joe invited us to their beautiful wedding in Pella this past weekend.   I had my gear with me because I am doing some work for the Opera House and I thought I would take this as an opportunity to get some shots for my client and my friends.  I was a little nervous when it rained for most of the day; however, it cleared up during the magic hour to a bright blue sky.....perfect!

Stunning https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2014/2/stunning I must admit that Claire is one of my favorites.  I think it's because I know her inner beauty so well that when that collides with her outer beauty, and add a camera….WATCH OUT!  It's overwhelming.  I'm a little sad cause she is moving to Chicago. It seems that many of my favorites move to LA or Chicago.  I always have hope that our paths with continue to cross so that I can continue to take photographs of them.  I know that Claire can do anything she decides to do…because she has a heart for Jesus and it shines through in everything she does.  Good luck Claire!

Reenactment Fun! https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/12/reenactment-fun While I was talking to Kelly about her son's senior photos, she mentioned how sentimental she gets when she looks outside at the swing set and how it's grown spiderwebs and how her family built that swing set and her memories of it.  As I talked with her more, she mentioned she had photos of her husband, father and son building the swing set.  I thought it would be fun to do a reenactment of the photos.  When I arrived, Kelly had so many of the original staples of the photos...the Peter Pan hat, the red telescope and the red thermos!  I couldn't believe it! This was a very special shoot for me since my father had passed away.  I am so thrilled I could be a part of this memory....so sweet.

This was for their fall/winter marketing campaign.  LOVE the colors!  Love it all!  And I love my hair....thank you Salon Utopia....for making my hair look awesome!

Then There Was The Dog Who Ate Rocks https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/11/then-there-was-the-dog-who-ate-rocks I had such a great time with the "H" Family.  Their story is inspiring and uplifting.  Definitely a journey to capture...and doesn't the kindness of this family jump off your screen?  We giggled and climbed the tree house and changed wardrobe ideas three times.  But everything was worth it!  Oh, and the dog.....my goodness.....he wanted to be in every photo.  Ready to pose at a moment's notice.  And right before I got in the car, the dog starting eating rocks....a daily ritual I hear.  Love it!

Kids Eat Grass Too https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/11/kids-eat-grass-too I was thrilled to spend time with the S. Family once again this year.  Even those the kids ate the grass, we had a lovely time exploring the bridge and the old barn down the road from their house.  The wispy blond hair on these boys makes you think of a sunny day even though we had no sun for this shoot.

Latest Headshots https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/11/latest-headshots Just a couple of my latest headshots.  First, there's Tim, the "sign guy" in Pella.  We had a lot of fun catching up.  Then there's Megan with the light blue eyes.  She's a realtor and needed a new headshot.  But when these people are in my studio, I just can't have them leave without a nice Facebook profile photo....{I figure they spent time on hair and makeup, might as well get a nice personal shot from it, right?} so Megan and I giggled a little and she let me boss her around a bit.  I love my job.

She's Got Personality https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/10/shes-got-personality I'm not sure what I really was like as a little girl, but I'm pretty sure I was full of facial expressions and attitude...so you can imagine how much fun I had with this adorable sweetheart who filled the sky with expression.  LOVED IT!  I could have taken photos of her all day long.  And her little sister was as sweet as can be...with that robust smile!  Needless to say...we had a great time on a beautiful day..out in the country.

The Sunset Race https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/10/the-sunset-race This was the second session for Brianna.  We had the perfect evening and successfully got everything done before the sunset...and then some.  She has taken dance since she was three and had all these fantastic dance costumes....each with a memory attached.  So we decided to grab them all and engulf her in a colorful pile of memories.  Enjoy!

Lady of Jazz https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/10/lady-of-jazz Lady of Jazz....this beauty who looks like she is in her forties is a jazz singer locally as well as an actress.  I had so much fun being creative on this shoot.  We were shooting for her upcoming album and we talking silk and satin with images for the cover.  She also needed some updated headshots for her agent.  I was thrilled to be a part of it all.  So So pretty!

Goose Eggs in the City https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/10/goose-eggs-in-the-city My annual session with the M. Family came early this year....and just for fun we thought we would shoot in the city instead of the country.  The whole shoot started off with their youngest getting this big goose egg on his forehead.  Mom and I laughed since it was at the beginning of the shoot instead of the end....just a dash of extra photoshop work.  Too funny.  He was a trooper and by the end of the shoot he wanted all the focus on him!  Kudos to mom for once again knowing how to put together a great wardrobe for a shoot.  Mom is beautiful, dad's a goofball and the kids are so cute they belong in jail....

Rock-n-Roll in Pella https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/9/rock-n-roll-in-pella I absolutely loved this session.  So much talent in Brady....music, family, football, friendship....love this guy and his sense of humor.  The images tell a story of their own..no need to ramble on....

If you're happy and you know it... https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/9/if-youre-happy-and-you-know-it The range of emotion and facial expressions that happened in 45 minutes was so entertaining to me.  Sibley was so animated and I loved it.  Her grandpa orders one large print of every grandchild when they turn three. How sweet is that?  We had a lovely time on the square....

Fuschia Flags and Duct Tape https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/9/fuschia-flags-and-duct-tape Ya know, I don't ever remember anyone in high school that had perfect skin and no dark circles.  Well, I'm definitely not in high school anymore but when I met Brianna, I about fell over!  I didn't even have to photoshop more than half of these photos.  

She is in color guard at school and it was fun to twirl a flag again.  I used to be color guard captain in high school.  We lined up the flags on the brick wall and they kept blowing over so we of course went on a search for duct tape.  I have now decided....and should have long ago, that I need to include duct tape in my camera bag.  She had this amazing fuschia pink long flag attached to two poles.  It was so beautiful watching her swooshing it around in the dark alley.  This was just a partial session so I told her she needs to bring back that fuschia flag next time so we can have more fun with it.

Toots and 3D Glasses https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/9/toots-and-3d-glasses Ya know....I've been thinking lately....I give my blog posts such boring names or words..."The N. Family" or "Meet Jason."  Well, my time with my clients is anything but boring.  We laugh, giggle and get to know each other so well in that short amount of time that I've decided to name the blog posts something more meaningful and with a touch of humor of course.  Oh my goodness, the things I do or say to get a smile out of that stubborn three year-old or a distracted tween is well, let's just say, a little on the nutty side. 

During this mini-session I had the honor of having my boys join me and it was exactly what we needed.  They stood behind me and made toot noises and I got the shots I wanted.  Brilliant!  No swapping heads in photoshop.  But then I realized that this is my pastor!  And I wondered "Gosh, is this appropriate?  What does he really think of all this sound effect stuff?  Oh boy....this might not be a good idea?!?!?"  Well, come Sunday we will see won't we?  Ha!

IMG_3650 IMG_3683 IMG_3659 IMG_3697 IMG_3612 IMG_3738

She kinda looks like she's lookin' right at me sayin'.... "Girl, do those tootin' boys go with you to every shoot?  Just sayin..."

Stunning https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/8/stunning I am so excited about Catherine.....she is stunning and knows exactly what to do in front of the camera.  It took about all my self-control to just do a headshot session and not go into "artistic" mode with that hair!  And those eyes!  Oh my.....I just pictured a small subtle headband around her forehead in flowing grass with her perfect model face.  We tried a shot outside but with that hair, the wind can be brutal....but fun!  Ok, I need to calm down....but I want you to plan on seeing more of this stunning teenager....because the ideas are flowing!

Jump on Four! https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/8/jump-on-four What was supposed to be a super quick ten minute "snapshot"...turned into a one hour giggle-fest.   We had such a fun time with each other this weekend.  We got outside before it turned super duper hot and decided to do a few "jump shots".   Super fun!  Connor was on his own jumping schedule....so after a few "1-2-3-JUMP!!!" attempts, we decided to try to jump when he did....which only made us giggle a bit more.  Giggles....good for the abs right??

The Twins are Back! https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/8/the-twins-are-back Well, we wanted to try to get some outdoor shots with the W Twins so we tried again.  We took a couple breaks in the air conditioning and I just couldn't help but capture some images.  Dad was doing a crazy dance to get the twins attention.....you can see how effective that was?!?!  Too funny!  And I caught one little guy letting me know that he was just all done with me snapping some photos.

Trains, Trains! https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/8/trains-trains My nephew Will is always on the run....so when his mom asked me to take his photo for his birthday {theme is trains}...I thought, "Well, I do need a good workout!"  So I decided to give mom and dad and grandparents a little break and told her I was kidnapping him so that he was focused and they could relax.  My husband, no relaxing for him, I dragged him along.  He is by far my best assistant EVER!  The noises and faces and dances he does to get a smile out of a kid is worth $10,000 on America's Funniest Videos.  Soooo, I'm happy to say that Will followed every direction, even down to the smile.  What a sweetheart!  So here's just a few quick ones from our mini-mini-session....

The Hanson Clan https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/8/the-hanson-clan Yep folks....this is for real....no photoshop needed for this clan.   I loved the fact that this family wanted to capture their family how they normally spend their time together....at the beach, or in a kayak, with sand and sweat....LOVED IT!  What a great alternative to hairspray and ironing.  Oh, and I just had to make their "GQ Faces" photo into an apparel ad...wouldn't you?!?!

My friend Christine had twins boys 6 months ago and they are so much fun!  We did a quick 6 month session at their home and dad stayed home from work to help....can you say rockstar!?!?  Super cute kiddos.  We would set Boede on the sofa and in just a few seconds he would fall over and find his toes.  Older brother and sister got the best smiles out of them.  What a great family!

Miss M Takes The Stage https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2013/8/miss-m-takes-the-stage I must say that I am so blessed by my seniors.  I love the planning that goes into senior sessions.  I love getting to know each senior and the things I get to say to get that genuine smile out of them.  Rachel knew exactly how to pose....being a dancer made that easy for her....and in turn made my job a breeze.  She is an amazing vocalist and I enjoyed incorporating a select number of props for the shoot. Now I invite you to enjoy!

Paisley https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/11/paisley Paisley!  I absolutely LOVE that name....love....and those cheeks.  We had so much fun at the studio.  What a face full of emotion.  A new mom from Utah and calm as can be....oh, and beautiful, like her mom.

The K Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/11/the-k-family I was so excited to have the K. family back again this year for another session.  That blond hair in the sunshine with that Beyonce wind gets me every time.  Mom saw a little garter snake right in the middle of the session and kept on going like it was no problem at all.....wow, way to go!  Meanwhile I'm tucking in my shirt thinking the snake will find its home down the back of my pants.  We had an incredible time for a mini-session with lots of expressions and some wonderful family moments.

Chelsea and Gang https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/11/chelsea-and-gang Another great mini-session.  This family did a fantastic job coordinating their wardrobe and they were so much fun.  The children had fun personalities and were comfortable in front of the camera.  I think mom is gorgeous with those perfect cheekbones and eyelashes that people pay for.  Dad was willing to do just about anything I asked....although his arms started to get tired when I said "again!" while throwing his kids up in the air.  All in all....a ton of fun in a 30 minute mini.

The D. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/11/the-d-family IMG_0386 We had a short session with some of our cousins last weekend.  Three families involved in sports had one free hour to shoot.  They did a great job coordinating wardrobe with a 24 hour notice....but I'm thrilled we were able to meet for that one hour and capture some images for their Christmas card.

The C. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/11/the-c-family Oh my goodness gracious....five little girls and one cute little boy.....and the most laid back parents ever.  I just need to warn you that these little girls will warm your heart and they are the most beautiful girls ever!  We had a fantastic time on a beautiful evening.  We blew bubbles and made faces and each little girl gave me a little peek into her personality and I was thrilled to capture it all.  Some of these photos I haven't even edited in photoshop yet.....those little rosy cheeks....nope, not me.....those long dark eyelashes with the wispy blond hair....nope, not me....those big brown eyes....nope...no photoshop.  I'm amazed and pray I can photograph each of these beauties until they get married.  I sure hope I can get my hands on those cute little cheeks of baby Palmer.  We ran out of sunlight so we hopefully will schedule some baby time to capture those cute baby faces.  Thanks to mom and dad for going with the flow.   Let's do it again soon!

Everett https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/10/everitt Oh my goodness....We had a beautiful time on a beautiful autumn day shooting a family in Des Moines.  New parents who are calm, photogenic and so stinkin' sweet.  And dad was a rock star and carried the car seat, blankets, diaper bags and baby all around our property.  Way to go dad!

The T. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/10/the-t-family Oh my goodness.....what a good lookin' family...and ya know what? They are the sweetest people ever!  Cora has grown so much since our first session.  And I'm sorry but Morgan is one of THE most beautiful women I have ever seen.  I'm thinkin' I need to get her back in front of the camera just for fun.  What an awesome mini-session....fill with not-so-mini moments.  Love!

The M. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/10/the-m-family IMG_1624 Welcome to the M. Family's Family session.  We had such beautiful weather this year....I remember freezing our little bahookies off last year.  I worked with them on their wardrobe this year and was thrilled with their final choices. What a great lookin' family.  It's so great when clients put thought in to wardrobe to really tie up a family session in a nice red bow!  Awesome!IMG_1423 IMG_1439 IMG_1574 IMG_0994 IMG_1692 IMG_1512 IMG_1483

Faith https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/10/faith Faith....this is Faith....I mean really?  Her lashes are real!  And that hair I longed for when I was her age..hoping it would balance out my hips.  We did a short headshot session in anticipation of doing more shots for a comp card when she is back in Pella.  An incredible actress who is driven to succeed.  We do have faith that Faith will be a successful actress for many years to come.

Fit to be Tying the Knot! https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/10/fit-to-be-tying-the-knot I was thrilled to get the call that one of my web clients was engaged! So they drove out to our Pella Studio and we did a quick session on a beautiful later summer night.   They are getting married in Costa Rica....I'm thinking I should see if they need to fly out their photographer friend Tammy for the wedding....I thought that was a brilliant idea, don't you think?  Congrats to you Ryan and Lori!

Headshots with Justin https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/10/headshots-with-justin I just love Justin's face.....he's got that tan, wise, amazing face.  He is originally from South Africa and has been in the states for over a decade as a soccer coach.  He is breaking into the biz...and this those eyes, I'm sure he will be modeling very soon.  Justin was a pleasure to photograph!  And for a first time, he brought some great wardrobe choices....

The V. Gang https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/10/the-v-gang Super fun family on a super autumn night in Pella.  What a darling family and a dad who actually fixes his daughters' hair during the shoot!  Gotta love that!

Little Miss C. https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/9/little-miss-c Last week I had the pleasure to meet and photograph Little Miss C.  She was so good for the 2 hour shoot we had...flexible...pleasant and full of emotion.  What a doll!

Hannah goes to Berklee https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/7/hannah-goes-to-berklee I can't get over her eyes!  They are amazing...and so is that smile.  It was her first time in front of the camera and she rocked it!  She is getting ready to go to a music camp at Berklee.  She's an amazing opera singer who is teaching herself guitar.  We had a ball.

The S. Family https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/7/the-s-family I was referred to the S. Family by a friend who is an interior designer.  She had four frames and wanted to use photos of this adorable family.  What a great idea!  But we couldn't just shoot for the frames....so we had a ball with their new puppy and jumped outside for a bit.  I even gave the puppy a haircut so we could see his eyes.  What sweet brothers who got along so well.  And I must share this....this mom had no makeup on, her hair was pulled back into a loose bun and she suggested that I get a photo of her and her youngest because she already had a canvas of her and her oldest.  What a rockstar!  Totally love that gal....she knew it was more important to get a photo than to be all dolled up.  Love it!

Redhead Inside and Out https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/7/redhead-inside-and-out What a little firecracker!  She didn't stop moving the whole time....posing, making faces....I think I lost 5 lbs just trying to keep up.  I caught just a few short moments and wanted to share them with you.  Forgive me for multiple posts....just trying out these various "share" options on Zenfolio....enjoy!IMG_0562

Sydney Prepares for L.A. https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/7/sydney-prepares-for-l-a This girl is so amazing in front of the camera. I'm thrilled she is going to pursue her acting career back in LA once again...but so sad that I won't have her to shoot on a regular basis.  I just know in my gut that she will be very successful.....and I'm thrilled to be a tiny part of it all.  We are working on this really creative promo piece to send to some of the big wigs in LA...watch for that piece.....it's gonna be outstanding!  Good Luck Sydney!  IMG_0897 Here is Sydney's commercial shot.  Simple....with that smirk I love!


IMG_0296 We also needed a younger fresher photo since she could still play the 14-15 year-old roles as well.

Sydney Graduates https://www.tammybricephotography.com/blog/2012/5/sydney-graduates I will admit...Sydney is one of my favorites to photograph.  A professional who I am confident will be a star someday.  She is graduating early (not surprised) and will soon be back in LA to pursue her acting career.  I am so thrilled for her and can't wait to watch her journey to stardom.  She wanted her graduation announcements to be feminine.   Everything came together for this shoot.  Devine!IMG_8721 IMG_8852 IMG_8742
