Jack’s 5 Year Photos

For the past 5 years - from the time of his birth - I have taken pictures of my nephew Jack around his birthday. This year we did the photos at his home. These were my favorite set yet, because they show Jack where he feels safest. I loved each smile, giggle, and every bit [...]

Baby Henry’s Birth

I first met Kristyn and Joshua when they were looking for a photographer for their wedding. They were so warm and kind, and I just knew I wanted to have them as clients, so I was thrilled when they booked me. About a month and a half ago, Kristyn contacted me letting me know that [...]

A Work in Progress

I know it's been many months since I've posted. I know it's best to blog at least once a week. And about onece a week I make a resolution to blog more. But like life, this blog is a work in progress. And I have been working, and progressing. Some things I hope to share [...]

Little Livi

Little Livi was seven weeks old when we did her newborn pictures. She was just starting to smile and coo. As my daughter is now nearly 4 months old, it was hard not to think about how much my little girl has grown in just a "few" weeks. Livi is the first girl for the [...]

Spring Family Session at Doris Ranch

I first met this mama at a New Year's gathering. She had a beautiful little girl who was just a few months old at the time, but who had already shown that she was a feisty one. This little firecracker and my son shared their first kiss together when they were about a year old [...]

Poppies and Vintage Lace

When I found this vintage Priscilla of Boston gown for $20 and St. Vinnie's, I just KNEW I had to do a session with it. A year and a half later, the session finally became a reality. I found the perfect couple (I was so thrilled the dress fit!), and the perfect place off a [...]

A New Look for a New Year

Last year I photographed some of my favorite weddings to date. The couples and venues were all amazing, and I can't help but showcase these beautiful people and details on my site (which is also sporting a brand-new logo!). So excited to see what 2017 brings! "May Laughter infect you; Your Passion resurrect you. May [...]

High School Senior Jenny

Senior high portraits have come a long way from the stiff, cookie cutter images that used to dominate the yearbooks. I remember that for my high school portraits, we chose one of three days to go to the school where the photographer had set up the "standard blue" background. Girls got their choice between a [...]
