Adventures as a boy mom...Read More
I LOVE extended family sessions. When you bring in Grandma & Grandpa, and some of your favorite people so much magic happens. The Peterson family will go down in history as one of my most loved families. There were moments that gave me goosebumps, ones that literally made me laugh out loud so hard that I had tears in my eyes. With 9 grandkids that are all boys that was an absolute. These are some of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure of meeting and photographing. Thanks for the forever memories, and images that I can treasure as an artist and ones that you will hold close to your hearts forever.

“If you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans.”
-Christina Wentz, how their plans all changed and how amazing that change is!
Matt and I met back in 2007. I had moved back to Illinois after living in Florida for a few years and we were both going to Western. As soon as we started dating I had a feeling that this was not going to be just another guy that I would date for awhile and move on. Ten years later I know that feeling was definitely right on, he works so hard to support and take care of our family. When we got engaged in 2010 we both knew we wanted kids eventually, and that we were already 27 & 32 so we didn’t want to wait a long time to start a family, but we also kind of wanted to a little bit and settle into married life.
As they say, “if you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans.” We were married in April 2011 and Rosella Joyce was born 9 months and 7 days later. Ryne Matthew joined us 22 months and our family couldn’t be more complete. They are the center of our universe. I know it’s what everyone says, but neither of us really ever understood how you can love someone with all of your being until these two came into the world.
Parenting ain’t no joke though. Rosella “Ella” is my super chatty, curious, independent, and artistic little girl. She will for real talk from the moment she wakes until she talks herself to sleep (and in her sleep), and always has a million questions.
Ryne on the other hand is my wild and crazy, moody, and curious little mamas boy.
Both are completely capable of testing our patience and melting our hearts in the same minute. It’s not always easy but it’s so always worth it to see these two little people grow into smart and kind human beings." - Christina and the story of her family
I enjoyed seeing this family again, Ryne is slowly warming up to me! I'm looking forward to watching this family grow through the years. Enjoy your slideshow and click HD to view it! -Trisha K.
Daxton is Wild and Three!
Daxton is the answer to so many prayers. We did not know if we were having a boy or a girl so on 10/25 we found out…it’s a boy! And 100% boy he is. He loves to dig in the dirt, help dad mow (by mowing alongside him), dinosaurs, tractors, paw patrol and HORSES!
However he is very loving too. He is very charismatic and good to his little sister (although not good at sharing) and loves his daddy lots!
Enjoy your slideshow of a few of my favorites, it was so hard to choose, what a fun session this was! Please be sure to click HD and leave Dax a Happy Birthday wish!
