  • 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.


This year I am loving bright colors and even untraditional fall colors like golden yellow, salmon red and sage green. This family’s outfits fit perfect with my favorite location, which always delivers great light and beautiful, colorful backgrounds. I love this family, these kids and everything about these pictures!! Eli and Naomi were rockstars at their photo session this year – such great listeners and so much fun to take pictures of!

You walk. I’ll skate.

I’m pretty sure these are my favorite photos I’ve taken of the Smith family yet. The last couple years, Holly has been choosing a fun, unique look for their sessions and pushing me out of my comfort zone just a little, to capture something different than my normal style. I love how these turned out and wish I had more fun, styled sessions like this one. Thanks so much Holly and Jesse for bringing the family out again for photos. Hope you like them as much as I do!


Jena had so many fun ideas for her senior portraits! She loves photography and music and horses.  She has been planning and waiting for these portraits and was so excited for her big day. She looked so gorgeous and I loved all her ideas and outfits she brought. It was really fun getting the chance to capture her personality and her many interests and talents!

Jena – I hope you like your sneak peek. I don;t know how you’ll ever choose – there are so many more great ones to come in your gallery!!!:)


Apple Hill


Apples and Pine Trees and Christmas! This cute family wanted to do their photos at Apple Hill this year and it was such a fun place for their session. I love the colors and the Christmas Trees and the Orchard. It is my favorite time of year!!!

Dave, Heather, Marielle, Maverick and Kiersten love this spot at Apple Hill, by the duck pond, overlooking the treetops. It’s always fun to capture a photo in a spot your family loves to be:
