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 mom to four great kiddos, adventure seeker, 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!

Photo sessions should be fun, playful, and capture the true personalities of each family member as well as family interaction. It makes my heart happy that so many of my clients tell me how much fun they had and littles don’t want our time together to be over. When you look at a photograph, you remember the feeling you had when it was taken. That’s why it’s important to me to be sure everyone is comfortable and having a great time. Of course, this makes for the best photos too!

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

Annette Heck Photography

Types of Photography: Families, seniors, & individuals. fine art school portraits, and family films.

As a mama, I understand how quickly these kiddos grow and how much life changes in a blink. Try as we might, we can’t slow down the hands of time… But. I can help you stop time, even if only for a moment. Together, we’ll capture images that preserve the heart-melting cuddles, the belly laughs, and your too-beautiful-for-words love. It’s these priceless, fleeting, moments you’ll relive every time you look at your images. Images you, your kids, and, one day, their kids will treasure… forever.

I’m Annette Heck and I use my experience as a photographer, homeschooling mama, & 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 they love how I put them and their children at ease all while efficiently capturing their family’s authentic connection and joy. My goal is for our session to feel like a family playdate with your kids saying, “that was fun!”. All the while, we’ll create images you will love.

I offer a variety of sessions, including seasonal minis. Styling consultation is also available to all clients at no charge. Subscribe for first access to minis & more: Let’s stop time and capture your family’s story through beautiful images.


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.”
