Oh how I adore a sunset session. Some ask why that’s so important… I just can’t replicate this beautiful golden color and aura except right before sunset. I realize it’s just too late for some little ones–I get that, I have two kiddos of my own, but if at all possible, I always try to […]

I absolutely adore family farms!  Love them. We timed this family’s portraits so we could grab some of the wheat along with the beautiful old buildings scattered across the family farm. I cannot wait to show you them all Amanda, but I don’t want to spoil too much….

I’m so thankful for the Women’s City Club! First off, the city has done some awesome renovations and the outside is looking beautiful again :)  And second, when it’s raining, the porch is big enough to keep my brides dry! Linzy and Matt endured some rain to grab some gorgeous portraits there and after it […]

Little Mr. M was so snuggly. Some days are a little gloomy… you know, bad news and just doom and gloom. There is really nothing like holding a newborn–breathing them in and just enjoying them. It took a while for him to sleep, so Mommy and I got plenty of loving in. I’m thankful I […]

God’s been humbling me lately! I absolutely would rather get my teeth cleaned, run 10 miles or shop at WalMart on Saturday than have to stand in the rain. Seriously. Any of those. However, for Josh and Brittany, that’s exactly what we did ;)  It poured. And poured. And poured during the Welker’s big day. […]

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. Simon and Tiffanie took the plunge on the lawn of the Ambiance. I couldn’t have begged God to give us more beautiful weather. Perfect day for the awesome couple. Congrats guys!

Another perfect couple… I’m so thankful for these clients. They were visually beautiful (obviously), but it’s their hearts I so enjoy being around <3  Enjoy Kori and Alex; I can’t wait to watch you two get hitched in November!!!

While I am ALWAYS up for a crazy idea or location or something totally off the wall, I definitely love a great session in the park! The Rabe’s totally rocked Ms. P’s 6 month session in the green. Enjoy!

Rain and wind have been my two biggest nemesis this spring… it rained and was gloomy all day. I thought there was no way we were going to be able to shoot Melissa and Derek’s engagement session. We gave it a go and I’m so thankful we did! The clouds parted, we enjoyed some sunshine […]

I get super excited when couples have “places”–where they met… where they hangout… a family’s property… you get the drift. Brandi and Nick met at NuFit here in Quincy; hence them on the rowers! St. Anthony’s also has a special place in Nick’s heart since his grandparents were founding members (shot through the brick archway.) […]

The weather this year has been so unpredictable. First, mother nature refused to give up the cold, and now… well… rain and wind. Amanda worked to get creative with me on this session. We shot mostly in a barn with the door open to get out of the chilly wind. Grace did humor us and […]

Today I’m praising God for the opportunity to sneak outside on Monday and shoot Tiffanie and Simon’s engagement portraits! The 40 degree peeks have given me spring fever. I cannot wait until the snow and ice is gone. Until then, I’m going to savor these portraits and enjoy all of these two’s beautiful smiles :)

November weddings are becoming increasingly popular! When I started shooting weddings ten years ago, I had zero in the latter two months. Now a days, the first two weekends of November are typically booked and at times, I’ll be shooting even past that. This year with such a late fall and beautiful temperatures, Nick and […]

I am blessed by this little guy. I’ve watched him grow over the last year… I can’t believe he’s one! He’s turned into such a sweet, happy little guy. Ryker, we LOVE you so much!!!
