Mr. & Mrs. Lawley + puppy

I had the pleasure of meeting Miss Lisa this Fall when she handed the High School dance team she had been coaching over to me. We hit it off right away, and she has been so helpful in that transition for me! I am so pleased that I’ve gotten to know her more and more as we’ve seen each other throughout the year.

After hearing her excitement and anticipation leading up to receiving their new puppy, I was thrilled to do a little family Christmas session for them! It was my first time with a dog in the picture…(pun kind of intended), but he wasn’t any more difficult than a typical toddler I’ve worked with. Similarly, he made a cute and playful addition to the family session. Here are some of my favorites!

DeVilbiss family

Now with two toddlers, the DeVilbiss family has only gotten cuter since I last photographed them! At times, little ones can be a challenge to keep attentive (& warm) , but we were able to get some good smiles and sweet moments! I think the motivation of seeing “Frozen on Ice” later that night may have helped a tad 😉

Seniors: Maggie & Ashley

Now that I think of it, Maggie and Ashley were my first models (ever) when I made the initial investment in my camera. They’ve always been hams for the camera, but have only grown in their grace and beauty since (not to mention silliness!)

To launch my first blog post/gallery for Cari Renee Photography, I am excited to share these two beautiful besties with you! These girls have been friends for YEARS, and it definitely shows. I enjoyed roaming Vegas’ gorgeous Red Rocks with them. Beautiful backdrop, beautiful models…what more could I need?
