A Letter to My Younger Self

Monday, July 27

  I love gleaming advice and insight from those that have walked the path before me.  Whether I am hearing about things they are glad they did with their families or things they regretted, it helps me evaluated what is important right now.  I initially thought of doing a shoot where the mom gives advice More…

2014, I loved you.

Saturday, January 17

Oh I love photography, however the frequency at which I post to my blog is lacking… love me anyway.  2014 was filled with travel, families, seniors, and weddings.  The year started in London and ended in our new backyard covered in snow with a dreamy “Narnia” feel.  Thank you to the families that book me year More…

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.

What can be better than a cute little vintage trailer in the middle of a field?  Adding four giggly girls is what is better!  We traveled over the boarder for this shoot.  It was a beautiful sunset evening… we had quilts, hula hoops, and vintage sodas.  I don’t want to forget the moments where their 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…

Meet this sweet family!  I’ve been photographing their journey since their oldest was just a couple years old!  I love watching them grow.  We enjoyed the sunshine, pies, and had lots of play!

Everyone wants to know a family like this.  One that has fun traditions like collecting tea cups, vintage cookbooks with family recipes, and one that LOVES to be together.  Their “happy place” is a few hours from the cities on a beautiful lake in a cozy cabin.  We used family heirloom dishes, blankets, and books More…

Who doesn’t love the last few coffee dates before the baby arrives?  Meet this sweet couple who is anxiously awaiting their spring arrival.  We started at Peace Coffee shop (one of the best ever) and then headed to the place they were engaged to capture a few more in the wintery snow.  These two are More…

How can you not love a couple that adores charming houses, vintage toys, Ryan’s homemade cookies, and taking little “Z” to climb trees?!  This shoot started at a vintage soda fountain and ended in our wintery wonderland.  June can’t come fast enough because a food truck wedding at Aria will the the cherry on top!

Someone once said, “Hold her a little longer, rock her a little more, tell her another story, let her sleep on your shoulder, rejoice in her happy smile, for they are only little for a while.”  On this particular snowy morning, my littlest was not short on expression or giggles.  Since they were about 6 More…
