All my boys…

Filed under: Just Because, family — Char @ 6:43 pm

I met Jodi from Gehman Photography through email and internet. Rodney and Jodi are husband and wife photographers based in Iowa. I love following their excellent work!  Because they were coming in the area for a family vacation, Jodi asked if we would consider meeting them at the beach and trading family sessions. I was all like honored and nervous. Yikes, what if I totally screwed up their photos?!! But no worries, they were as nice as good be. It was a pleasure meeting them in person. And not only that, I walked away so blessed as they were so willing to share their knowledge and expertise with me. Stop by and say “hello” here.

Family. My family. Ever feel like your heart is going to burst ’cause you just remembered how much you love somebody?!!

These are my boys and they make my world complete.

Here is a few photos they caught of my family…


Jeepers, this feels weird posting photos of myself! Now I understand what it feels like to be on this side of the camera. Not a piece of cake!





This old bike was parked on the dock. The old man was very skeptical, but allowed us to use it for a dollar. This is how you will find Adler much of the time!


Riley and Adler made fast friends with Rodney and Jodi’s son, Jackson.

Rodney and Jackson…
