Ever meet someone and realize very quickly they were meant to be doing the job they do?  That is Mrs. Anderson!  She’s a teacher.  And, one of THE best!

Offering Tipp City Ohio family photography provides the opportunity to meet tons of new families, but this one I met through my daughter! Mrs. Anderson was my daughter Evie’s first grade teacher last year at Nevin in Tipp.

A new school year is always a little exciting and can be stressful, too.  Evie is naturally shy and I sometimes worry about her feeling comfortable at school.  Luckily, I heard so many good things about Mrs. Anderson and after meeting her I knew Evie would be comfortable.  Evie thrived this past year and ADORED you, Angie!  You are one of the best teachers out there and any student is lucky to have you.   Thank you for doing what you do SO well!

I had a blast getting to know The Andersons!  You’ll love all these smiles too. They are such a sweet and loving family!

I have to add a funny story here.  We jumped right into photographing and about 3 shots in I realized that Angie was chewing gum! I called her out and thought it was hilarious because….well, I caught a TEACHER chewing GUM!  Okay… we weren’t in class or anything… but you can’t chew gum while having family moments captured.  We all had a good chuckle about it!  🙂

I took my husband Andy and our daughters Evie and Josie out for a mini session back in early May.   I was feeling a little rusty coming off the slow winter season and thought it would be fun and a good challenge to photograph my own family.  Fun???  YES!!!!!    Challenging????  Oh my goodness  YES!!!!  Luckily my girls are wonderful children….for other people LOL!  For their parents……well….I think they are pretty close to most kiddos at giving us a hard time and being crazy.  Add Andy who’s not a fan of photos (most guys I know don’t enjoy photo shoots) AND he was chewing gum the whole time.   Let’s just say I kept it under 25 minutes!   I LOVE how these turned out and I think I need to do a mini session of them once a year.

This first photo captures the three of them so well!  They are 4 and 7….they are loving but FULL of energy but push us to the limit and test us as parents ALL THE TIME!!!  This parenting gig is amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world….but I’ll be real here internet friends.  It’s hard!  REALLY HARD!   Having said that I wouldn’t want to be going through parenting with anyone else!   Andy I hope you have an amazing Father’s day!   Our girls are blessed to have you as their daddy!


  • Mom - I love all the photos. You capture there relationships so well. But I really like what you wrote above. Proud of you as always.June 21, 2017 – 6:27 pm
