Buick Family | 10-26-2014

I’ve photographed this family for 3 years now. Their son Tyson has grown so much. Still hates having his picture done, but we finally got some really good ones of him. It might have been my craziness though that got him laughing. It’s hard to tell. ;) I found the perfect dirt road for their photos. She wanted country and I thought this was perfect. Cute little barn, gorgeous scenery, & gorgeous faces.

The Byers Family | 10-26-2014

The Byers family wanted one huge family portrait. Of course it was hard to get everyone together at the same time. When we finally did, their family was nothing short of real. From posing deer antlers to their dog being in the image. Even doing most of the photos in their own back yard. Perfect yard for some unique photos. After we ran out of ideas there we all got in a car and went to Pierce Creek where we found fall colors and some nature-y scenes. Even though some didn’t want their pictures taken, they did end up with some great family portraits that they will cherish for years to come.

The Miller Family | 10-19-2014

I haven’t photographed many families with older kids. This was almost a first. It was weird not having to chase a little one around. I enjoyed every minute don’t get me wrong. Haha! We met at Pierce Creek and shot away for an hour in all the gorgeous fall colors right at golden hour. Absolutely perfect location for fall photos. I am so glad I found it!

Shipp Family | 10-11-2014

I got the chance to meet this wonderful family. Mom, Dad, their 2 sons, and grandma! They were such a fun bunch! They meant me at Rapp Park in Shenandoah for a fun family session. We took a more lifestyle approach to this session. Thought it’d be more fun of the boys being themselves. Of course we got some great shots of them running and laughing. The best part of life, right? Such a great family. We dodged the sun and found a walking path surrounded by the lake. Made for the perfect early evening session.




I’m not sure what dad was doing behind me in this one but those boys were cracking up!


My darling Savanna | 10-03-2014

What would I do without my Savanna banana? She is my foundation. She is the reason I started doing photography. I just love her. Although she thinks i’m crazy sometimes the way I try to pose her, she still tries to cooperate. She has PCS (Photographers Child Syndrome) though. Don’t let the photos fool you. She tends to run off and not listen to a darn word I said. Haha. We did this session out at Rapp Park.. I wanted a nature look.

Changes are a good thing!

Due to recent cancellations and fall being such a busy busy time of year for photos. I am now charging a deposit, due 2 weeks prior to your session. I have had cancellations when i’ve driven as far as 30+ miles and waited in my car for an hour. While I completely understand that things do happen and you do have to cancel things every once in a while, I hope you understand my reasoning for this change. This will help me know who is a serious client and also help me know what dates I have open for those who are more of a last minute planner. Every time I have a cancellation, it could have been another session with another family wanting pictures last minute. Fall is a very busy time of year for not only a photographer, but who doesn’t want those beautiful fall photos!?

Every session will require a deposit at time of booking. This will be 20% of your total session fee and will not be refundable. You can pay this via paypal.com and that does not require an account. All session deposits can be sent my paypal at chynne_graham@hotmail.com.

Again, thank you for understanding this change. I truly appreciate each and every one of my clients and you all are like family to me.  I hate turning people away because we are booked up. Hopefully this will help!

Much Love,
Chynne Sue

Khloe is 9 months! | Shenandoah, IA Babies Photographer | 09-08-2014

Where do I even get started? We shot these in her very own yard. The pumpkin was grown by her grandma and that dress was so precious! Ms. Khloe is standing, almost walking, and cute as ever. Always working the camera like a super star. I can’t believe in only a couple months we will be doing her 1 year session! Wow time flies! I am one lucky photographer to get to watch these little ones grow. =)


Chris & McKenna | 06-22-14 | Shenandoah, IA family photographer

Stephanie originally contacted me about a father’s day present to her husband. A photoshoot with his daughter. How awesome, right? He was more than excited. It’s those excited clients that I live for. Chris was so excited to get some pictures with his daughter McKenna and what better place than his own field and corn crib?! It was a photographers dream. In the middle of the country at sunset after a storm rolled through. A gorgeous corn crib, a big corn field that dad was proud of, and the cutest father/daughter duo ever. They had so many of their own ideas and listened to mine as well. We started off shooting by the barn (or the corn crib is the correct term) and he said he could go get his tractor. He pulled up in a big green John Deere tractor! So much fun! We shot with the tractor and then he even went into the corn field. So unique and so fun! I think the photos tell the story the best.   mckenna1
