It is hard to find a sweeter six than this family. I am completely in awe of each of them. So many different personalities, all thriving together under their parents’ love. Let me tell you, I would be hard-pressed to find more well-behaved children. I will photograph this bunch any day. From running around the […]

Oh my goodness. This adorable family. What a great session to kick off photo season. It had been a couple years since I’d photographed them, and the kiddos have grown up so much! It was a joy to catch up with them and spend some time together in the woods. <3

greece adventure

Every ten steps, I had to stop. I’d turn to Courtney. “Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness.” Every corner revealed a new view and a different feeling. Each Island, each mile of each island, was completely different from the last. Laundry blew in the breeze, castles sat on cliffs, churches rose up beyond every hill, […]

And this time, they’re celebrating their soon-to-be little one! Nicole is just absolutely radiant. They’re both so excited to meet their little twig. 😉 It was a rainy […]

What a classy couple. Oh my goodness. I can not get over how snazzy these two look. I can not wait until their wedding. Sam and Sharon are adorable together. We bopped around Hope’s campus (where they met) and then headed downtown. Since it’s the beginning of the season, I was seeing all of downtown […]

Where or where to begin? I’ll begin with Abby. This lady is an absolute sweetheart. She actually invited me to her bachelorette party… that has never happened to me before! She is so sweet and hilarious, and I love the photo up above of all the little girls at the wedding gathered around and chatting […]

There was just something about Nick and Jami’s wedding that revived my heart. Being around good, loving, thoughtful people on one of the best days of their lives just never gets old. Jami and Nick are two of the kindest, quirkiest souls you’ll ever meet. But the fact that they found each other (so long […]

Say hello to the DeVisser family! And a happy birthday to little Miss Emma! To celebrate, we all hung out in the studio with a box of donuts! I think a box of donuts should probably be a requirement for all family sessions from now on… it kept these kiddos super happy the whole time! […]

At this point, you should all be familiar with this adorable family. They are some of my very best friends and one of my favorite families to photograph. Little Ezra doesn’t seem all that little anymore! He’s spunky and sweet and so incredibly loved. It is a joy to witness the love between all three […]

Cheers to experiments. Cheers to flying out of comfort zones. Cheers to waking up in the morning and getting out of bed. I haven’t been the best at any of those things in the last few months. For unknown reasons, this winter has taken a toll on me. I often roll out of bed hours […]
