We are Erik and Jennifer Lankford...married for 11 years! We are the proud parents of Isaac Joseph who was born June 15, 2007 and Hadleigh Jane who was born July 15, 2007. They were placed in our home when they were 10 days old and adopted SEPTEMBER 12, 2008. On November 2, 2010 we welcomed Libby Louise into our family and we couldn't be happier. In July of 2012 we welcomed Isaac's biological brother to our family. Jaiden's adoption finalized on Feb 14, 2013. On November 21, 2012 we welcomed Mollie Ryan in to our home to bring us up to 5 children. We live in Aspermont, TX. I have been doing photography for 9 years. I shoot with the CANON 5D Mark II in hopes of buying the 1D eventually. My favorite lenses are the 70-200 2.8 IS and the 85mm prime! I LOVE LOVE LOVE photographing families, children, newborns, high school seniors and maternity!!

School Portraits

These are the kids school portraits this year! I think they look so 'big' when they are walking and you can see their entire outfit from head to toe!! I LOVE IT!

They did pretty good, no crying at least!! I CANNOT get Isaac to smile for the life of me when trying to take his picture in the studio! He just gets so solemn! BUT, I can say that I think he is too cute ANYWAY!! I don't always need the "smiley" picture!!

In September, once the adoption was complete we moved the kids over to CHILDREN'S DAY OUT at our church. They went from going Monday - Friday from 8-5 to ONLY going 2 days a week: Tues/Thurs from 9-1! Boy was this an adjustment for me!!! :) All of that is to say that we moved just in time for ME to take their school portraits!!! YEAH!

Hadleigh: 15 months

Isaac: 16 months

Here are a few photos from our trip to Universal Studios. There are only a few b/c I hardly took any pictures, but it was a nice fun, fast get-a-way! It's been over a month ago that we went and Erik's mom came in town to watch the babies! Erik had a conference so he left on Sunday and I flew out on Wednesday to meet him!

Margaritaville...didn't have time to go visit though, but it looked like fun!

This was the COOOOOOLEST log ride EVER!!! The photo doesn't really do it much justice to show you how STEEP this ride was! And when you come out of the hole it LITERALLY shoots you out so fast! OMGoodness it was so fun!! Universal actually had a lot of fun rides! If you ever go you HAVE to ride the Simpsons ride and the Spiderman ride and this log ride!!

We went to our annual Harvest Fest at church that Erik is in charge of, along with a whole committee that helps him out so much. This year we had some of our sunday school classes decorate their own rooms and they turned out FANTASTIC! To those of you who were in charge and helped with this....THANK YOU! You guys are the best!!
Hadleigh and Isaac dressed up like lions this year...thanks to Mema!! They were too cute! I could not believe that they kept their "manes" on the entire night!! It was awesome! There were not any games that they could play, except we did do the cookie walk! They loved just running around, showing off and playing with all the other kids! It was so packed the ENTIRE night, from 6-8 solid! I think it was very successful and Erik did a super job putting it all together! This is his BIGGEST event of the year next to VBS!!
