It was still sprinkling the rain when these guys pulled up for their session. Less than 30 minutes before we were supposed to start we’d had a thunderstorm and they traveled an hour to get to my house for the session. Summer weather is hard on shooting schedules, but thankfully this one worked out. The […]

Jennifer and I have been friends since high school, so that made this session extra fun! Her boys have grown so much since the last time I saw them and honestly, it feels like we just got out of high school! Sessions like these certainly remind me that time is flying by and it’s so […]

Here I go, sounding like a broken record again, but it’s the truth! Photography has given me a way to connect with people and form friendships with them. It’s a huge win in my book when a client becomes a friend. I’ve been photographing this sweet family for a couple years now and I was […]

What could be more fun than a mud fight? When Nikki said she wanted to surprise her boys with a mud fight at the end of their session I knew it was going to be good! We had the best time together on a beautiful summer evening. We talked about power rangers, gardens, stepped on […]

I love the energy of this sweet family. It’s so evident that they are soaking up every minute of this season of life with two precious girls. We had the prettiest spring day yet for their session. Their beautiful outfits were a perfect compliment to the soft green we’re starting to see on all the […]

As soon as I asked them to look at each other the chemistry and love was so evident. It was like everything else in the world had fallen away and it was just the two of them. Dakota and Tabitha are so in love and I think it’s just so beautiful. I could see it […]

I have been photographing this family since their oldest was 3 months. When I found out they were expecting again I knew I wanted to try my hand at capturing their beautiful baby girl, even though I’m far from being a newborn photographer. Gemma Kay came two whole weeks early and weighed over 8 pounds! […]

Picture in your mind 7 adults singing and dancing to The Wheels on the Bus in a field in 50 degree weather. That’s exactly where we were on Sunday and I wouldn’t have had it any other way! With this many sweet babies in one picture we worked hard for every look and smile, and […]

If you were raised in church chances are you know what I mean when I say church family. They aren’t just the people you go to church with each Sunday and see at VBS in the summer. They are the people you laugh and cry with. You pray with each other and for each other. […]

I’ve been waiting around for what seems like all of October for fall to finally arrive. Early in the month I was grabbing at any little chill in the air I could find. The beautiful fall colors and the crisp air have finally made their appearance and they were STUNNING on Sunday afternoon! Extended family […]
