  • Welcome!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. This is a place where you will be able to find my latest photography work and client sneak peeks. I absolutely love the art of photography and consider it a blessing to have the opportunity to photograph so many wonderful people.

    Please note: I am currently booking a very limited number of sessions each month and sessions often book out months in advance.

A long time coming

Eve and I have been trying to schedule a photo session of her four kids for a little over a year now. But with everyone’s busy schedules and four adult kids at four different schools, filled with busy lives and activities, it took awhile to coordinate everyone in the same place at the same time. I am so glad it finally worked out because I was so happy to meet this incredibly kind, fun, beautiful, intelligent group. These brothers and sister seem like they have a great time together! They were so easy-going and so much fun to photograph!!!Tyler:


Jacob:Beka:  And one more of Beka because she’s just too gorgeous not to share these:Eve – I adore your family. Thanks for the opportunity to photograph them and be a part of capturing their lives at this moment in time!!!

Red Hot

So, after this session I’m pretty sure I want to dye my hair bright red!!! I was in love with Erin’s gorgeous hair and she had such a fun, unique style about her. Erin wanted pictures in a garden and we found the most beautiful purple flowers; I could have done the whole session in front of them! Erin – you are just lovely and I loved taking your senior portraits!!! I hope you feel as beautiful as you look!:)

The black and white sweater contrasting with the red hair was probably my favorite look!!! So gorgeous!!! My daughter was super excited when she saw Erin’s picture with these Harry Potter books. She’s just about done with book 4 and was so jealous Erin had finished them all. Pam and Erin – thanks for the opportunity to do your senior portraits. It was great meeting you both and I will have your full gallery up soon!!!

Minis 2014 kick off!

I am looking forward to a great holiday season filled with mini sessions and tons of great families. I love catching up with everyone at this time of the year and was so excited to get started on my first set of minis for the fall.

It was great starting off with this super sweet family that I just had the pleasure of meeting. Ryan, Susie, Marin and Bryce were great to hang out with and Marin – well – how cute is she?? So beautiful!


If you’ve followed this blog for any period of time you have seen this handsome guy before. I am so excited that he is soon to have a baby brother!!!

Mom is looking gorgeous as ever of course! Some people walking by even thought Mariah was getting senior portraits until they saw her belly.:)

I think this was my favorite though – love this fun interaction between Landon and Ryan.

Ian and Anna also came out – look how cool Ian is!! Seriously!

Oh Anna – I just adore you:

And a little twirling to close out a fun night. Thank you all for coming out – galleries coming soon.:)

Sister love


Sister photos are my favorites, they just are! These sisters are always so sweet and as I’ve watched them get older it’s so fun to see their sister bond grow too. I couldn’t get enough of their sweet interactions and silly smiles! They  just moved into a new beautiful home and we shot all these photos around their developing yard. I forgot to tell you Jenny, Gynn said I could move in and sleep on her trundle bed. Gemma said I could sleep in her room too but she doesn’t have a trundle:(The moving van will be there Friday!;)Thanks for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful girls again!!



Beautiful pictures Sandy and I am sure having adorable little girls helped with the shots! :)
