I met Nicole years ago at MOPS (Moms Of Preschoolers) in my hometown. She and I were in the same discussion group, and I always thought she was such a fun gal. After she and her family moved away, we kept in touch virtually, and this fall, I was honored when she asked if I could come to Omaha, where she now lives, and photograph her sweet (and fun!) family.

On the day of our session, it was pouring for most of the morning and mid-afternoon. Thankfully, we stuck it out and were rewarded with a beautiful fall evening at Standing Bear Lake. (Can we all take a moment to admire their outfit/color coordination with the golds and yellows of the leaves. You can't get much better than that!) So thankful I could capture this time in your family's life, Vogel family!
