The Blare Gang

February 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Oh Happy Family!

 

Traveling to the other side of Hamill country, I stumbled along this group at their house, ready for their pictures to be taken! What a coincidence. This was one of my most fun sessions. This Blare Gang really knows how to have a good time!  

 

We started off under one of their great big trees. We soon found the wind did not want to  cooperate with us, so we moved along. We ventured all over their farmstead using everything we found as a background.  Things I usually use at backgrounds: trees, fences, barns, buildings, grass.  Things I would have never dreamed of using, but did because this family is so willing and playful: an old futon frame, an old cane and an old walker. 

When you have so many children, it is hard to get everyone together. As they grow older and graduate, which two of these fine young ones have, it gets exponentially harder to do so. I am grateful to have been asked with this precious moment, one that will be happening less and less as time goes on.

If anyone has the magic potion to make your kids stop growing, I would love some, and I am sure this family would too!!

Dusty and Jessica

January 30, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

It's been a busy end to 2015 for me. I was able to take some time off for the holidays and enjoy my family.  They are such a blessing and while I enjoyed my time off, I am very glad to be back working with pictures. Finally getting to blog, this super cute couple popped up on my to do list! Dusty has been imported to South Dakota, just like most of the Robbins clan has been. He has been coming up from Oklahoma for years during the summer to help out with the farm. Now that he has snagged Ms. Jessica, I think he's here for good!

Jessica is a wonderful gal.  She really fits well into the family and we couldn't be happier to welcome her. 

 

Such a fun, cute couple!  Engagements photos still to come!!

Copen intro & One Month

December 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Hey all!  Ashley did a wonderful pre-baby intro of me, so I thought it was time to intro the baby!  (Cause who cares about mom anymore, it's all about the baby, right?!)  Copen was born in Sioux Falls on October 19, 2015, after a very long couple of days.  He came out at a whopping 8 pounds, six ounces and 22 inches long!  We missed out on doing newborn pictures, because he had an extended stay in the hospital, but lucky for us, we got SNOW on his one month mark!  So OF COURSE I had take pictures to mark Copen's first snow :P

We are so blessed to have such a beautiful little baby boy!  I am excited to share his little progress of life with ya'll!

Until next time...

The Koskan Crew

November 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Hey you, gorgeous family!  Thanks so much for finding time to let me take your photos!! It could not have turned out any better. Plus, I learned how to do the duck face from the littles!  You guys are super special to me, and am so glad I am able to call you friends. I am still a little bummed on the big move. Since we are keeping track of who visits who, I think it's safe to say we need to make a trip out to Disney Land sometime soon!  As I write this, it is snowing sideways outside my office. I think the trip should come sooner rather than later!  

 

Along for the ride of pictures came these two also!! Ryan and his fiance, Pam!  I am beyond thrilled for Ryan and wish you both the utmost happiness with your future as a couple!

Jake and Laura 1st "I Dos"

November 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Jake and Laura had a super fun, rustic first wedding.  I say first wedding because they plan to have three!! Yes, 3, weddings. :)  For their honeymoon, the newlywed hopped a flight to Vegas and was married by Elvis!  Their next wedding will take place half way across the world in Australia, where Laura is originally from. Let's chat about this first wedding!

It all started as an outdoor wedding, but the weather had other plans. Luckily, it just rained, and as we all know, South Dakota is known for some October blizzards. While the rain was WET and turned everything to mud, it still allowed us some outdoor pictures, as it took a break once in awhile.  Antler Ridge Lodge ​ was a great venue and made the outdoor wedding into an indoor wedding in no time. 

 

Unique to this wedding was the actually ceremony itself.First one I have been to that people were suggested to "grab a beverage" on their way to sit down!  It was just a perfect fit for this wedding. If anyone knows Laura, you know about her wonderful accent. If you can make it through reading the sign below without getting an Australian accent, I wouldn't believe you!

Love is sweet.  I am so glad these two found each other. It's such a blessing to be able to share a day that will forever be special for Jake and Laura. Many blessings to the new husband and wife team! Ooo-Rah!
