Clay + Morgan - In home Photos

I'm already imagining Morgan and Clay showing these images to their future children, all 7 of them! I imagine them sitting down with their 6 sons and 1 daughter when it comes time for them to day and explaining to them how they want them all to find love like their own. They will then pull out a super outdated ipad and show them these photos from their first apartment together. Then all 9 of them will cry happy tears and hug, and then I will show up and they will all hug me too and tell me how much they love me!

... But really, I only wish for like ... 3 of those things to come true. I'll let you guess which ones.

Jethrow - One year In Home Photos

Today, we celebrate little Jet turning one! You may recognize this little guy from Rachel's birth photography and in-home newborn photo session.  At one year old I found that Jet is a fan of smiling, climbing on his little green chair, laughing at his puppy Simba and gazing up at his Momma. I was able to photograph Jet in his place of birth, place living, growing and learning. I loved being able to capture him in this element.  These are the photos that will stir up those warm, homey memories for years and years to come.



Senior Portrait - Abigail

I love when I get to photographing Seniors like Abigail! She's has a shy soul but somewhere inside is the confidence of a queen. I was able to take her light hearted personality and share it with the world! We both wanted to capture ‘movement’ in her photos and she trusted me as I made her dance and move around infant of the camera. She was a trooper!


Im-Home Newborn - Gunnar

Sweet little Gunnar! He was such a trooper during his newborn session. In-Home newborn sessions is the best way to capture a baby at their calmest. They know they are safe, comfortable and that mom and dad are near. Photographing babies in their cozy element is by far the best! His room was filled with cozy blankets, soft music and even a baby space heater. Not much gets cuter than that! Great job Gunnar! 



Here she is! Our Geode Wedding! Our geode wedding was created inside The Skeleton Root for 20-30 of our couples closest friends and family. Although our venue has a modern feel, we had plenty of earthy pieces to tie in our geode inspiration. Scattered throughout our venue were stones, crystals, florals, and wine; most everything in their raw elements.

What's Changed??

Many things have changed the last few years. All for the better! I've made mistakes, I've grown and I'm now moving forward. Clean Slate. I went MIA from 2016-2017. I feel like I owe an explanation to those who supported me the last 7 years. I have always wanted my clients to feel like family; a name change and team change deserves an explanation of how my life changes affect the business. 


One year Photos - June

Oh, June. This little blondie is already in love with the very best life has to offer. Animals, Music & Bubbles. I can't think of three better things to put in a list. Her little spirit is kind and gentle. She's destined to do great things. Enjoy just a few of my favorite images of the most appropriately named baby around. June!.
