My Life as a Soccer Mom – Behind the lens with Wendi Riggens Photography

This is totally a personal post tonight. I realize how rarely I actually photograph my own children (partly because they really do not listen to me when I have the camera out) and how even more rarely I actually sit down and edit the images I take of my children. Even though I was up late working and starting to nod off at my computer, I felt the need to grab my Oly OMD and download the card that was in it. This morning I took a few quick shots of my daughter playing in the back yard. The last shots before those were from September 1st. Such a shame! Almost all of my snapshots of my kids are taken with my iPhone. I really, really need to get my “big guns” out more often, or at least the EM5, though it really isn’t all that big.

Anyway, I’m rambling, and exhausted, but wanted to share a few bits of my life. These two are my pride and joy, the reason I wake up every morning and work as hard as I do – as hard as we do, my husband and I. These two bring light to our lives in ways I never imagined possible before having kids, and I am so incredibly thankful for them.

Growing Up With The Gates! Keokuk Newborn Family Photography

I have been photographing this beautiful family since Eric and Angela’s engagement in 2007. In the last several years, I’ve had the joy of being part of their wedding, welcoming their daughter into this world, and photographing her as she grows. Recently, they had a second little girl, and I am so excited to join them on this journey, too!
