the swaffords

What a great opportunity for me to be able to reconnect with this amazing family from my alma mater, Benedictine College in Atchison, KS. Sarah was the Resident Director my sophomore year and Andy (who it feels weird to call Andy…it's Dr. Swafford or as Sarah puts it "Swaff") is a philosophy professor at the college. They made a trip out of it and drove to Des Moines to get their family photos taken and I couldn't have been more excited! Not only are they super fun to be around so I knew that they would be a blast to photograph, but also because I hadn't seen any of them since college - I never even met Miss Cate! Needless to say, they did not disappoint. We had a great time running through fields, climbing things (ok I didn't do that…that was all Fulton & Cate), all while getting some pretty adorable photos. See for yourself!

Sarah is "the founder of Emotional Virtue Ministries and speaks nationally to people of all ages on a variety of topics such as Emotional Virtue, Dating and Relationships, Modesty of Intentions, and Interior Confidence" (see her website).  I was thrilled to be able to take some new headshots for her ever growing ministry!
