California Bound

Monday, May 12

Meet Madison.  She’s headed for California to pursue all her passions and attend college near Thousand Oaks.  She’s a talented actress, dancer, artist, and has an adventurous spirit.  I loved capturing her last few months in the midwest.

2013, you were a pretty year. You offered sounds of giggles, moments of tears, and lots of hugging. There were weddings with record players, food trucks, and cotton candy. There were family sessions with homemade cookies, bonfires on the lake, and fireworks. We experienced birth video shoots which still make me cry every time I More…

This family is beyond kind.  Mom is just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside and this dad is full of fun.  Capturing their boys was so much fun as we started at the beach, headed for ice cream, and then had a surprise train come by.  What more could little More…

I love capturing this high school senior.  His love for German cars, hanging with friends, and being his own person was evident throughout our shoot.  I am excited for the road ahead of him!

Meet my oldest Lulu girls.   I want to remember these summer nights, their freckles, silly chants, and contagious giggles that remind me bedtime was 30 minutes ago. You can view their video here.  I love this age.  Time is fleeting and creating these memories for families is the best part of my job!     More…

What could be more fun on a summer evening than games in the grass, drive in movie theater, and treats.  This family loves to read, travel, and spend time together playing games.  I loved seeing two parents so dearly in love and enjoying laughable moments with their children.  It was easy to see they’d do More…

I am so excited to announce our styled shoot taking place on June 23rd.   There will be bakery sweets,  the cutest mint and cream stove ever, retro fridge for the kids, and other surprises.  😉  Our vendors have the CUTEST things ever!   Book your session early as space is limited.  Want to go the More…

Meet my little Lulu’s.  Along with their blond hair and blue eyes, they also share the same middle name… Lu.  Today’s session captured their giggles, their personalities, and their love for each other.  With three Birthdays in 10 days at our house, this the perfect time to capture their freckles, toothless smiles, and childlike hearts.  More…

I was reading an article recently explaining how children remember the little everyday moments more than the grand occasions.  It’s the car rides around town when they have a chance to talk to you about their day, family dinners, bedtime stories, or breakfast on the porch.  This shoot was a fun way to capture the More…

One thing I never tire of… spending time with my daughters.  Their excitement, silliness, carefree ideas, and passion make me a better person.  I know these days go by all too fast, so I will hold on to the fun loving joy they bring and try to bottle some up in photographs and video.  You More…
