  • 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.


Laura is such a sweet. beautiful mama and I loved shooting her maternity photos for the second time now. It was a blazing hot day in the early afternoon sun but we thankfully found some shade and captured some sweet moments of her and her family.

Last time I met Faith she was in Mommy’s tummy. So fun to get to know her!!

Miss Grace is as cute as ever!!!

Oh Laura – seriously – stop being so gorgeous!!!:)

Thanks Laura and James – I just adore your sweet family and your silly girls!!!


It’s a Wonderful Parade


Matilda Jane’s newest release is out and we love all the fun colors and summery dresses they have created. The new collection is called: It’s a Wonderful Parade, and Matilda Jane sent us a beautiful dress to check out. We received the RollerCoaster Tiered Dress, and the day it arrived my daughter Haylie immediately asked if she could wear it to school the next day. I made her wait until after our photo session but she has barely taken it off since. I think it’s her favorite MJ outfit she has!  Haylie loves to ride her bike so we took it out to the field for some cute photos in her new dress. She rode up and down the trails while we searched for the perfect spot to take the photos. The great thing for me as a photographer is that Matilda Jane outfits just make the photos – the color and the style just make the photo all come together and really shine. Thank you Matilda Jane for sending us this great dress!! If you want to pick up this dress or other items from the beautiful Matilda Jane It’s a Wonderful Parade collection, click here:



a walk in the sunshine

Last week these two mini sessions were among the casualties of the dreary weather. It was hard to make the call to cancel because it wasn’t raining at the time I canceled them, but by the time the sessions would have started, the rain was coming down in sheets! What a stark contract this week was and I am so glad we forsake the gray and rainy skies for the beautiful sunshine we got this weekend. It was a gorgeous day in the garden for some truly “spring” mini sessions…

Can you tell Todd and Darcy are excited about their upcoming wedding. It was so much fun capturing these pictures of their love and fun together:


Victoria and Vanessa loved the garden and picked out all their favorite flowers. We made sure to get pictures of each of them and they fit right in among all the beautiful flowers:

Thanks all – it was a great morning with you!!!


The minis that could…

I think I can, I think I can… Oh my this weekend was a doozy – it took out 5 of the 7 minis I had scheduled – between rain and sick kids, the mini sessions dropped one by one. But in the midst of the darkness shone two little mini sessions:)Sunday afternoon the sun came out and the rain dried up for just enough time to capture these two sweet families. We even had to do a last minute location change due to mud but we made it through and it all turned out great!! Thanks for sticking with me Jennifer and Jessica! And everyone else we will get rescheduled!!:)
