Ackermans - Quad Cities Family Photographer

I have mentioned before that there is a common trend with my clients...and I am beginning to realize that it's just how it's going to be. Plain and simple, Jennie Peakin Photography attracts some of the most laid back, gorgeous families, couples and children in Iowa.

For reals.

Case and point...

So what is the deal?! Why is it that I am so blessed to photograph such amazing people?! Honestly, I don't care why it happens, I am just so so happy it does!

To call this "work" I do a job is just completely insane. I mean, who wouldn't love being able to capture love like this photographically? Who wouldn't want to spend an hour or so with people like this just hanging out, chatting and playing with adorable, fun kids?!

I usually post the Mommy and child pictures, but I couldn't resist posting some Daddy/Son pictures. I mean, these are just to die for! I love it when you see the love just pouring from the image. These would be prime examples...


It might have been virtually impossible to get a picture of these 2 busy bodies together, both looking at the camera and smiling, but if you've stopped by here before, you know I'm ALL about the "real life" shots...those candid images that are a reflection of where your life is in the current season...

Grayer...4 months.
If ever I have a baby boy again, Rachel...I may steal your baby's name! And I can't say I'd be in the least bit disappointed if naming my baby such an adorable name would help make him look just like your baby too! :)

And this little guy, Mason was a blast. He was a BUSY BOY...and independent. It wasn't difficult to capture his adorable face smiling, but to capture a serious face (which I love me a serious face picture!) was more of a challenge. I managed to catch one though with my little "if you look really deep into my lens, you might see Batman" trick...

And I am in love with the candidness that is this image. I feel kind of like a fly on the wall here. You know, what a typical evening hanging out in the family room might look like for this family. :)

Thank you Nick, Rachel, Mason and Grayer!

Your family is absolutely gorgeous and it was not only a pleasure to photograph the beauty of your family, but also to get to know you all!
