I’ve noticed a misconception out there that if you’re going to put on a suit and have a formal portrait taken, it needs to be in a stuffy studio in order to convey formality and professionalism.  I’d love to break that trend and these lovely ladies are a great start!   A year or so […]

My husband and I met Danielle 4 years ago when we signed the lease on our very first apartment!  By day, she was and is the apartment manager for our apartment complex, but she has also been working super hard to get her real estate license!  Having researched it for myself, I have a small […]

Trinity is my first 2018 senior and was a joy to work with!  We met up downtown on Saturday evening and despite some logistical issues, she was super sweet and easygoing.   Nailed.it. Trinity is planning to go to college for fashion merchandising and it shows!  She has a super fun bohemian style and had […]

I was that girl.  The obsessed one.  The one who lived and breathed horses.  Horse books, horse movies, horse figurines, horse dreams, and yes, even horses made out of snow.   I dreamed of being a famous eventer.  (kind of like a triathalon – you compete in 3 different events – dressage, show jumping, and […]

Diana and I met in high school and became fast friends, but now we’re busy pursuing our dreams hundreds of miles apart so it was awesome to be able to get to see each other briefly last week!  Diana needed new headshots for her blog (she’s a fantastic writer – check out her blog HERE!) […]

You may remember this precious family from previous posts.  That’s because I tend to photograph them a lot.  They had better be getting pretty good at this picture taking thing 😉 This session was part of Steve’s parent’s multi-generational family session (other two posts are here and here). We had to postpone Steve and Jill’s photos […]

Remember the cute family session I showed you the other day?  (find it here if you missed it)  This is Dale and Janet’s daughter Emily and her sweet family!   Can you believe that these were all taken in Dale and Janet’s backyard?!  Having lots of family members around made it easier than usual to […]

You know those families that just make you feel like part of the family even though you’re not even remotely related?  That’s the Dows.  Now, granted, we’ve known them for a while, but when we arrived at their home to scout the session location on Saturday night (their own backyard – isn’t it gorgeous?!), they […]

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing Michael and his brother Abram periodically over the last few years!  I love watching them mature and being able to record a few of their baseball games this year has been so awesome!  (You can find Abram’s baseball session HERE.)  Michael’s game schedule ended up being a little more […]

Remember this sweet couple from a couple of month ago? (full blog post here) From the moment we started attending their church, we were impressed by their love for God and their dedication to the ministries they were involved in.  Over the last four years we’ve been priviledged to be a part of various ministries […]
