Meet Jennifer + Dalton. While I’ve known them for oh so short of a period of time, I can’t help but just dote over not only their love for each other, but their love for the Lord. They serve as examples and mentors to young people in our community and their church. They devote so [...]
Engagement sessions are one of my favorites! How I love getting to know my couples. Melissa and Brent were/are fabulous. Not only is Melissa downright adorable, she cracks me up! She was DETERMINED to be engaged by 30. Luckily, Brent realized how important this was and made it happen. The day before she turned 31 [...]
Meet Baby L–just 5 days old here. He LOVED to be held, but he wasn’t as hip on being put down. Can you blame him? Why on earth would I want to put him down when I could snuggle this little guy??? Give him a little credit though; we did put him in the back [...]
Oh there are no words. Simply perfect. From Nick’s suspenders, to their beautiful programs, to the photos hanging on little clothespins–I would like to bottle this wedding up and share the love during these snowy days when I’m itching to be out of the house. Katybeth, you looked simply radiant. I feel like you’re an [...]
As I type, my husband is sitting at the airport getting ready to take off on a two week mission trip to Cambodia. So thankful :) I’m realizing as I get older that I have so MUCH to be thankful for, my cup overflows. Foremost, I’m thankful I have a Lord and a Savior. But [...]
My family’s newest little love, Ryker James. He wasn’t thrilled to have his portraits taken, but he was perfectly content in Mama’s arms. So, we rolled with that. I wish I had taken a picture of his bedroom. Not only because it was adorable, but because it would have been the perfect example to show [...]
Lots of January babies! :) I met four new sweet little faces last week. I also managed to sneak away to Atlanta, GA for a couple days for Imaging USA–one of the largest photographers conferences in the US. So, needless to say, January has started off with a bang! I’m so excited to see what [...]
2013 has brought me so many blessings. One of them is an astounding group of girls in my oh so early morning Crossfit workouts. Celie is one of those bright faces that I look forward to at 5am. She loves me when I’m behind the camera, but more importantly when I’m at my worst fresh [...]
Meet Danielle! (And her handsome other half Nick ;) The one thing I LOVE about Danielle… she’s completely honest, completely. She came into the studio day one saying, “I don’t like to feel stressed. I don’t like surprises. I don’t like things to be out of control. I want you to handle it all and [...]
Important lessons learned this weekend… many of you know Easton Zanger–our precious little “Super-E”. He’s rallied this community together to fight for a glimmer of hope in such an uncertain place. He lost his fight yesterday. My heart has been breaking as I look back at pictures taken of this sweet little boy and my [...]
So fans, after a completely packed, crazy and sensationally booked fall, I am now spending the rest of the year comfy, cozy (and likely in sweat pants!) behind my monitor editing, sorting and delivering orders (along with working on some pretty exciting stuff for 2013.) This year has been more successful that I’ve ever dreamed [...]
I’ve never had as much trouble with weather as I had this October! I had to reschedule a mini session event 3 times! And poor Kelsey + Brett–our first appointment was disrupted by winds OVER 20 mph and the second at the pumpkin patch sure looked like it was going to rain on us, but [...]
Kayley and Josh rock. They serve, volunteer, mentor and open their lives with so many people. I recently traveled to Cambodia with Kayley and have since had a love for her deeper than words can express. I’m honored to take a part in their big day; it’s going to be FANTASTIC. Love you both. Enjoy!
Sheesh… this girl doesn’t take a bad portrait. And to top it off, not only is she gorgeous, but she has a beautiful heart. I LOVED spending the day with Abby, her sister and mom. This is what makes my job so fun. The people. Abby–enjoy every last minute of your senior year!!!
Meet Debby + Josh. I would LOVE to tell you all about how much these two were a pleasure working with… however, Christmas deadlines are drawing near and I just keep pushing forward! Congrats you two!!!
I understand the first look isn’t for everyone, but Ashley and Brandon are here to demonstrate the advantage… • The pics of them seeing each other for the first time are BEAUTIFUL. The lighting was gorgeous and they had time to just take a breath and enjoy each other. We were able to get multiple [...]
