Show Me A Smile Photography

Types of Photography: Child, family, and senior

I’m Nicole Manning of Show Me a Smile Photography. I’m a Jesus lover, mom to four great kiddos, and photographer of all things beautiful (that means you). I love strong coffee, dark chocolate, and amazing photos. You’ve come to the right place because there are lots of outstanding photographers featured here! Everyone should love their photographer, so take some time to look at websites and social media accounts, ask questions, and connect. Find someone who has the style and personality that is perfect for your family. And if I happen to be that someone, I would be honored to be a part of telling your story.

Annette Heck Photography

Types of Photography: Portrait/lifestyle sessions for families, children, seniors, and individuals. Fine art school portraits. Family films.

Our kiddos grow too fast, they change in a blink, and photos/videos are the best way to preserve these fleeting years. I’m Annette of Annette Heck Photography and I use my experience as a photographer, homeschooling mama, and former child/family therapist to make your entire photoshoot process stress-free and enjoyable. From booking all the way to gallery delivery, I’ll take care of the details so that you can focus on your family. My clients tell me that what sets my sessions apart is my ability to put them and their children at ease all while efficiently capturing their family’s authentic love, joy, and even chaos (no judgment here, I totally get it). During our time together, you’ll find yourself laughing and feeling all the feels while we create images that will make you smile every time you look at them.

I offer a variety of sessions including seasonal minis (spring, Mother’s day, sunflowers, fall, Christmas, and more) and styling guidance is included with all sessions. Let me help capture your story through beautiful images that your children, and even their children, will one day treasure.



Wolffie Photography

Types of Photography: Lifestyle family, maternity, and couples

I’m Emily Wolff, the mother of two very energetic little boys! As a mother I understand the thought of family photos can be stressful. Worrying if the kids will behave and if you’ll get any good pictures out of it? Your children may want to run around, or they might want to just cuddle with you. I embrace those moments and just let the session roll! I love the honest moments that make your family so special. I do my best to capture how things are right now. Your children grow up so fast and the days fly by.

I love being able to capture the joy and the love that those little humans have right now. I love being able to see how much you adore your children. Seeing the joy that is there from your babies, who may not truly be ‘babies” anymore.

During our session we will have fun! We’ll dance, We’ll play, I might sing terribly!? Either way I know we’ll leave with great pictures and it will have felt like I just spent an hour with friends! While I specialize in lifestyle family photography I also love doing maternity sessions. I truly believe that time is one of the most special and magical times we have in our lives. I love being able to show women how beautiful they are even when they might not feel like it.”
