Our family is a circle of strength and love… Our family with every birth and union the circle grows, our family is a circle of strength, every crisis faced together makes the circle grow stronger. – Harriet Morgan
This quote exemplifies this family. I was so blessed to be able to capture some very special memories for this large and fun-loving group of people. We all beared the heat this evening and still managed to get some great shots! The kids were so fun to work with also, just adorable!
Steve and Mary Rust, the heart and soul of this family. They are a pretty special couple to have raised such wonderful children!
CJ, Marcus, Tiffany and Kyle are the siblings. I will be the first to say that we had a hard time getting a photo that didn’t have something silly going on! These kids are just so full of life, it is hard to make them stand still!
This has to be one of my absolute favorite photos of all time. Erin and CJ with Grandma. The pure happiness in this photo is exactly what you could feel in this moment.
Erin and CJ are my first couple that is featured. Erin is one beautiful and strong woman. She is battling a very aggressive cancer. She has one of the best support systems around and I was so blessed to be able to capture a few special moments for these two. I love how you can feel the love between them in the photos. It is magical!
Kyle and Tinera have two cute little kids, Braelynn and LT. These two little ones stole the show this evening. Can’t you tell 🙂
When you capture joy on a child’s face is the best! I’m not sure what was going on here for sure, but it had Braelynn smiling!!
Tiffany and her three girls, Avary, Rylie, and Kennedi were so fun. We managed to get a few smiles from them Kennedi wanted nothing to do with the camera. She just wanted to play with her cousins.
Interaction photos are my favorite. Everyone was trying to tickle Kennedi. The laughter that came from this was the best! We did get a few individuals of each girl. I know that they will grow up into three beautiful ladies with a very special woman to look up to!
Marcus, Amy Madison, and Judson are such a cute family. Madison and Judson get along like two peas in a pod! They definitely showed me their personalities and loved having attention. Madison, especially loved posing and showing off her cowgirl boots 🙂
A few more fun photos from the evening. I remember a comment on this photo when I posted it on Facebook. “Is that knee pop natural!” I would have to say yes 🙂 You two are great together, it shows!!
These beauties showing off their sass and cowgirl boots! How much better can it get?!?
As a Nebraska portrait photographer, I believe that it is so important to have memories like this captured. Being together as a family, being there for each other, and tackling what life throws at you is what is is about. These photos show the love and the bond that this family has. I felt so welcomed when I got there and continued to laugh with them throughout the shoot – even in the heat!
Thank you Rust Family for asking me to capture some fun and special moments for your family. You guys are all amazing. I truly hope that you can always look back at these and be able to remember where you were at in life and how much love you have for each other. I loved laughing with you guys and hanging out for an evening! Always stay crazy and fun and filled with love!
