Reno Family Photographer | I hope they call me on a mission

Reno Family Photographer | I hope they call me on a mission

I love this family. When I started my photography business this is one of the families that was willing to give me a chance. It has been fun to watch their family grow and change throughout the years. I also love that they are still asking me to take the photos after all of these years.
This time around their session was really special. I normally don’t start shooting outdoors until it starts to green up and isn’t too cold, but this family session just couldn’t wait. Their oldest son is leaving to go on a mission for our church to Argentina. He will be gone for 2 years… speaking Spanish, serving and loving the people of Argentina, and bringing the message of our Savior Jesus Christ to all those that want and need to hear it. It has been such a blessing to see him grow and turn into such an amazing young man. I always thought it was so amazing when these young people (men and women) decide to dedicate 2 whole years of their life to serving. I love it. I don’t know how is sweet mom is going to be with out him for 2 years. But if anyone can do it Its this mama right here!

We took their family photos up at the Reno Temple… which made it even more special. 😉 I don’t talk much about my religion on my blog… I’m not sure why. I don’t know if I feel the need to separate my personal from my business… but there you go! If you want to know more about these amazing young people serving missions or what our religion is about you can visit mormon.org. Its the best website!

I LOVED this picture of their youngest. He has the coolest dark brown eyes and sweet smile.

I had each of the siblings take an individual picture with their brother. That way they could have something of them together for the next two years. This was my favorite… the oldest and the youngest.

Reno Photographer | And The Winner is….

 

WOW!!! I had NO idea that we would get so many votes on the best of 2015 contest! There are so many different Reno Photographers and I am so grateful to each of the clients that I have and they trust me with their precious memories.

Thank you so much to everyone that took the time out to vote. It was a pretty close contest. We had 4 different people that had a lot of people vote for their pictures. It was so much fun to see everyone sharing their photos… and having a great time voting for each other. Seriously… so awesome.

I decided to give all 4 major voters a prize. The 1st place gets the 16×20 canvas and the other 3 get a 6×6 canvas. or if they would rather have a 5×7 canvas they can do that too. I LOVE the cute 6×6 canvases. They look adorable on an easel and in your kiddos rooms. Seriously. So so cute. I love them. I’m sure you all want to know who won! Here our the winners.

1st place winning the 16×24 canvas is Melina with her 2 darling little Red heads…

All the winners can either send me an email at info@morganmathews.com or send me a message on Facebook letting me know which photo you would like printed. Or if you have my phone number you can text me. 😉

 

Thank you so much again to everyone that voted. 2015 was one of the craziest years for me on a person level, and I am so incredible grateful to all of you that trusted me to still take photos of your little ones. I have been working hard in my studio… rearranging, make new backdrops (seriously I die. They are so cute) and knitting new outfits for all your littles. I am so exited for the new year and all the fun things that will be happening.

xoxo,

Morgan

Reno Photographer| The Best of 2015

Reno Photographer | The Best of 2015

2015 was a crazy year.  Not only was it the best year for our family but it was a great year to be a Reno Photographer. I had my baby at the end of 2014 and had to navigate the whole having a baby all over again. And I have to say it was the best year! Not only did I get to watch my sweet baby grow, but I also was able to photograph the cutest babies and kids in Reno. I honestly believe that I have the best clients. I love that I get to watch these sweet babies group up, and that I get to meet new ones. Thank you so much to everyone that trusted me to photograph your newborns, babies, kids, and families!

I thought it would be fun to have a little giveaway! I included 1 photo from every session that I photographed. Each photo is numbered. To win you have to have the most amount of comments voting for your photo. Easy Peasy. The winner will get a 16×24 canvas of their favorite picture from their session.

 

Another hope that I have in holding this contest is to show all of my clients and anyone who follows my blog how important it is to print your precious photographs! There is no point in having your baby’s or family photos done if you are not going to print them. I saw a quote the other day that said something to the effect of… The most photographed generation in history will have no photos to show for it. We aren’t printing these precious memories! Overtime CDs and USBs can become corrupt meaning that all of the images on your CDs will be lost. I would be so devastated for every one of my clients if this happened to them. And on a more positive side… printing your pictures is FUN! Especially when they are BIG!

Reno Child and Family Photographer | Johnson Family

Reno Child and Family Photographer | Johnson Family

Being a Reno Child and Family Photographer means that I get to capture the sweetest kids and families. This little family… I guess I shouldn’t call them little… They have grown in more ways than one since the last time I took their family pictures! The last time I took their pictures their daughter was a baby. Now they have sweet little Sam and all the older kiddos are growing faster than I can keep up with! Babies and kids definitely do not keep. 😉

I loved shooting this session. It was so fun to take the Johnson Family out into Reno where the fall colors had started to come out. I loved that we were able to get such a huge variety for their session. Its one of the things I love to do. I love being able to get several different spots at one location but put them all back together in one session for a cohesive look. Its so much fun. I guess that is pretty similar to any type of art.

I loved the light in this picture! I have really wanted to shoot a photo that is so sun drenched and I am so glad this sweet girl let me do it. I love the way her blonde hair lights up.

Caleb wasn’t so sure he was going to smile for me… talking about stinky feet usually does it.

These fall colors are so beautiful! I love this spot!

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Child Photographer06

I had a picture in my mind for their sibling shot and it wasn’t working out they way I had planned. I was a little sad, but we were able to get this one and I couldn’t be happier with the way that it turned out. I think it is so darling.

I have some smiling ones of this cute little Sam, but I loved how thoughtful he looks in this one.

Reno Child and Family Photographer | Jones Family

Reno Child and Family Photographer | Jones Family

Oh my goodness. I can’t even say how much I adore this family. My husband went to college with this sweet mom and I am so glad that our families have remained friends over the years. Its really fun because my 2 older boys are almost exactly 6 months older than each of her boys! Its really awesome to have a friend that has kiddos that are the same ages of your own, and they like each other! Pretty rare I would say! And I have to say how much I love other “boy moms” 🙂  Its so much fun. There are definitely some things that moms with boys live with that could never be explained. Haha.

And yes… I did say I wasn’t doing any outdoor sessions this year because I had Nixon in December and things have been a little bit crazy and hectic. BUT I did this session for Jenica because I love her and I realized how much I miss shooting outside. SO I will be opening up a few spot for outdoor sessions. Returning clients will get first dibs on the dates I have available and then it will go to everyone. If you are interested in an outdoor session you can either leave me a comment or send me an email at info@morganmathews.com

 

 

Now onto these darling photos of this sweet family!

Grandma came by to take a few pictures with the boys. I have a ton of adorable ones of everyone together, but I loved this one and had to share it. If this isn’t what life really is all about then I’m not sure what is!

Morgan Mathews Photography | Reno Child Photographer 05

Boys and their moms make me happy.
