I am a storyteller. My goal every time I pick up my camera is to capture your beautiful moments, strong connections, captivating stories, and powerful emotions.
Photography has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember, but my passion really took off when I my daughter came along. Capturing the pure and candid moments of her childhood has become one of my greatest joys, and nothing makes my heart happier than capturing those same moments for other families.
Mission: I am a storyteller. This is my goal every time I pick up my camera, whether I'm photographing my own family or yours: to capture beautiful moments, strong connections, captivating stories, and powerful emotions- the good and the bad.
Cheeks and lashes and lips, oh my! Whitney
I'm so lucky, I get to photograph the CUTEST kids 😍 Rynnel
I can't wait to see this sweet girl again tonight! I can't believe it's been nearly a year! Rynnel
I guess fall has officially arrived, because it was cold during this session. I'm pretty sure less than a week ago it was in the 70s, but sure enough when the weekend rolled around we dipped well into the 40s. Yikes. I felt so awful for this family and especially for their little girl, but
Me: Who has the stinkiest farts?
This gal owned it! 😂 I loved her outgoing personality; she reminds me so much of my own three year old! Kathryn Cook

Does anyone else love Before and Afters as much as I do? 😍 Edna Hasenfratz
I don't know, do you guys think he likes dinosaurs? 🤣🦖 I love when kids bring their special toys along to their family photos; it's part of who they are at this moment in time and I love getting to capture that.
I took 1800+ photos at this family session last night 😮 But honestly, how could I not?! Between these adorable brothers and that gorgeous light I was in my photographer happy place and didn't want to miss a moment! 😍 Edna
Oh hey, remember way back in the day, I'd share a monthly blog post with my own family photos from that month? Well I'm trying to get back into that habit, starting with September!
I'm so happy I got to meet this little guy and his family this weekend! He was so awake and alert; I got to see those gorgeous eyes for nearly the entire two hours I was with him!
I need your help! If you've had photos printed in the past year, where did you print them? Shutterfly, Snapfish, Costco, Walgreens, somewhere else? 📸
This weekend I got to photograph my favorite (and most difficult) family- my own!
Happy Fall!! I'm over here in my hoodie and wool socks, drinking my PSL and editing this gorgeous sunset session, just soaking in ALL the fall things 😍🍁🍂 What are you up to on this perfect fall day?
While I edit my photos, I often think about how these images will be viewed in 10, 20, or even 50 years from now. I hope when this mama looks at this picture years from now, she remembers what it was like to hold her baby boy and to feel his whole weight resting on her shoulder. These are my absolute favorite moments to capture, the little "in between" moments that (I hope) will be priceless memories for you one day.
I've donated a full family session to a silent auction benefitting Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation, which benefits childhood cancer patients and their families. Click the photo and comment with your bid!
Happiest. Baby. EVER. 😍
What a perfect family session last night! Mom killed it with the outfits, and when we stumbled on this gorgeous field of yellow flowers that perfectly matched their clothes I knew these would be my favorite images of the evening! Roxanne
Pets are absolutely part of the family, and I love including them in your in-home sessions! This pup was SO. SOFT. I can't even describe it. And pretty much the sweetest, calmest pup ever 😍 Danielle
Another rainy day. Hopefully this precious new baby boy will brighten your day! Danielle
What's everyone up to this rainy Sunday afternoon? I'm over here working my way through this sleepy little guy's session and loving all his sweet little yawns 😍

This little guy has been through more at age 2 than most of us have in our entire life. I'm so honored to have met him and captured photos of this amazing family. Despite everything he and his family have endured, they were one of the sweetest, happiest families I've ever worked with. He and his whole family are truly warriors.

Take a peek at this beautiful family I was lucky enough to photograph at Fields Of Flowers last weekend!
I just loved getting to meet this family, they are just the sweetest! We had first scheduled our session for May at Fields of Flowers , but the crazy weather we've had all year meant there were simply no flowers ready to be picked so early in the season. We rescheduled for this past weekend and the

You guys, I am SO excited to share the project I've been working on over the last few weeks! The question I hear most often is some version of this: What should we wear? I KNOW how tough it is to coordinate your outfits; you want to look amazing, but be comfortable, able to move around easily,
