Jeff and I met on LDS Planet at the end of June 2019. His birthday is June 26th and I was first to message him a Happy Birthday message. If you know anything about me, you know I LOVE my birthday, so it seems appropriate that I will always remember our first interaction was his […]

We could not have asked for a more perfect, summer day for Samantha and Ron’s wedding. The weather was gorgeous and the sunlight was so beautiful, but my favorite part was the love shared between Samantha and Ron! It was clear from the moment we did their first look to the good-byes at the end […]

Mara and Jordan were married on a beautiful winter day last December – yes, I’m aware how long ago that was!! It’s worth noting that I photographed all three of these weddings {this one and the previous two posts}, traveled to Utah, did 2 family sessions, an engagement session and helped my brother get ready […]

I LOVED working with these kids – and their mom and dad are pretty great too – they cracked me up the entire time we were together. They have amazing smiles, superb dance moves and the best jokes. I really love working with families year after year, I love to watch them grow and change each […]

From the very beginning, before I even tried to make this little dream into a business, Amy has always been one of my biggest fans. I’ve taken their family pictures for SO many years, and they always come back, even when I didn’t really know what I was doing and was just starting out – […]

MaryRuth and I have been friends since 8th grade. We’ve been through everything together, PCOS, Infertility, job loss, cancer, the death of our moms, and many, many other struggles along the way. We talk to each other about EVERYTHING and we’ve been there for each other through some of the worst days of our lives. […]

I’m getting a NEW sister-in-law!!!!!! (and if you can’t tell, I’m SUPER EXCITED!!!) Skylar and Avery came to visit me in Chicago and while they were here we decided to take some engagement pictures. They weren’t “officially” engaged, but they were talking about wedding plans and picking dates {close enough, right?}. The only day we […]
