Thanks for stopping by!

I’ve always enjoyed quotes. They’ve inspired me, encouraged me and often evoked a particular emotion or feeling. I find beauty and intrigue in the simplicity of their ability to capture my attention in just a simple phrase. Quotes tell a story. They are a verbal or written snapshot of a specific moment of time that can’t be redone or duplicated and yet when quoted have the ability to bring about those same emotions as when it first took place.

Photography is a vessel that allows me the privilege of capturing the moments that tell your story, a history, a personal unique and individual time that can’t be repeated or reproduced. My hope is that the story told in your photographs will allow you in years from now to share the original feelings your special day evoked with a world that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to experience it, feelings of pure joy, excitement, anticipation, pleasure, friendship and of love.

There is a story waiting to be told between each set of quotations and since pictures speaks a thousand words... let's give the world your stories.

I hope you enjoy the blog and seeing my work in a little more detail!

These two little guys had SO much spunk and personality. I loved hanging out with them and watching boys be boys as they took me on an adventure through their stompin ground.

 

It feels like it was just yesterday this little man was in the most adorable puppy newborn outfit and we were celebrating his arrival. Hard to believe we are now celebrating his first birthday!!! Time goes by WAY TOO FAST!

This little man has turned TWO! It was great once again hanging out with this beautiful family as they celebrated his birthday. Ethan was fast and on the move! Mom is expecting baby number two so we trailed behind as the boys ran ahead.

It feels like just yesterday I’d purchased my new big girl camera and was squealing with delight at my upcoming wedding… their wedding. And now look, two kids later and i got to spend some time with them again 🙂

I get to meet their newest baby girl on Friday!!! Yes, that is how behind I am at sharing sessions :S I had a wonderful morning with Kara and her family capturing her adorable bump. I’m selfishly so excited we both have two girls both within months of each other, I foresee LOTS of sleepovers in their futures 🙂

Nine months, somehow it goes so fast and so slow and just like that the time has past and your whole world has changed. This beautiful family is getting ready to welcome their newest addition any day now and I couldn’t be more excited for them. I can’t wait to meet the little Mr. or Misses and spend some more time with them all again.

5 squishy adorable pounds of love. It felt like forever for this little man to arrive, and I couldn’t have been more excited when he did. His folks are two very special people in our lives and I can’t wait for all the adventures our kids are going to go on. My husband grew up with his mamma Kathryn so I think it’s really neat we had the girl and they had a little boy – I can’t wait for all the crazy adventures they are going to have!

 

This lady here is near and dear to my heart. In a very short time she has become one of my best friends and I couldn’t imagine going through this crazy journey called life without her. I feel like we’ve been through so much together already I can’t wait to grow and learn as mothers together too.

Not too long ago we (myself and another bridesmaid at her wedding) gave her a hard time that she should have a baby asap so our kids could grow up together like they did with my husband – turns out that was about to come true! I was beyond excited to find out they were expecting and that our babies would be born within a couple months.

Kathryn (and Lance) really had no option when it came to if they would have maternity photos or not and I’m so glad they let me take them out one night.

Adalyn was so precious, I don’t think I’d ever seen someone enjoy their cake as lady like as she did, she literally ate it one finger at a time! It was so sweet!

Milo… no words. This little man was just the sweetest, I seriously wanted to squeeze him! His smile lit up the room and I couldn’t get over the poppin shirt buttons haha. I was absolutely honored that Mom and Dad asked me to take some photos in celebration of his adoption.
