I’m so lucky that I get to call all these AWESOME people my family. This is my brother Brett and his family. I’m so glad that it worked out that I could do their pictures while I was in Utah. I love being able to capture all of my cute nieces and nephews each year […]

While I was in Utah last month, I was able to take several of my siblings photos {look for all their blog posts in the next few days}. This is my sister and her two beautiful girls. We had so much fun going up American Fork Canyon to Tibble Fork to take their family photos. […]

I LOVE the Jostes Family and I had such a great time hanging out with them in the city for their family photo session. So much fun that I want to plan my own family session downtown now. I LOVE the skyline, the ferris wheel, the colors of the lake, the sunlight, all of it!!! […]

The Jackson family purchased this photo shoot at the Bolingbrook Ward YW Auction in the spring. We’ve been trying to schedule¬† it for a couple months but sweet Gracie has been super sick and we haven’t been able to make it work. I had some sessions schedule and asked them if they were able to […]

They turned out so adorable, and I can’t wait to see what Marie does with them!!! Everything was perfect, the lighting, the colors, the girls, EVERYTHING!!!! I could not […]

I’m so glad the DaSilva family asked me to take their family photos again this year. Somehow we got our times mixed up and by the time we started we had about 45 minutes to do their family session, and a baptism session. But I wasn’t worried at all!!! I work really hard to be […]

Several years ago this young elder was serving in our area as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.¬† I loved having the missionaries in our home. I have 5 brothers, 3 of them served missions around the world. One served in Virginia, one in South Africa and one in the […]

During the summer many families gather for family reunions and vacations and it’s a great time to capture extended family photos. I know that sometimes the last thing you want to think about is coordinating everyone for a family photo….especially when it’s SO hard to coordinate so many people, but extended family pictures are some […]
