There is something so precious and special about an 8 year old child who is ready to make covenants, choose the right and be baptized. There is something special about being able to have your very own photo shoot, especially if you’re like me and you grew up in a big family and you rarely […]

I’ve known Alexa since she was just a baby. I started watching her at my house when she was about 8 or 9 months old and she was a part of our life for many years. She came everywhere with us and did everything with us, it was kinda just like having another one of […]

I love shooting photos outdoor, in the natural light. I love the soft beautiful glow of the sun. I love the beautiful open fields and natural settings…….but honestly October and November were the worst weather months we’ve had in a long time. I think I had to re-schedule 75% of my sessions. It rained and […]

I had the BEST time with the Judd Family at their family pictures!! It was a little chilly, and it’s always an adventure when you’re working with this many kids, but we had a great time!! I grew up in a big family and I remember many years going to get family pictures, but we […]

You wouldn’t know it by looking at these pictures, but it was freezing cold on the day we did these pictures. The wind was blowing and the sky was completely covered with clouds. I briefly thought about not doing them and seeing if we could wait for better weather, but they were troopers. These girls […]

If you had told me 2 years ago that I would be where I am today I would NEVER have believed you. Two years ago we were sitting by my mom’s side knowing that any day, any moment could be her last, watching her slip away from us, knowing that there was nothing we could […]

Lindsay and I met through LuLaRoe and I was so excited when she said she wanted family pictures taken…..the girls were less excited! We were supposed to do them on a day that it rained all day – of course, it’s been raining a LOT here lately, so we decided to meet early in the morning […]

A few years ago {ok, maybe more like 20}, I didn’t even know that Gotcha Day existed, and this awesome family celebrates a whole Gotcha WEEK!! {If you don’t know, like I didn’t, gotcha day is a day to celebrate when an adopted child is placed with a family}. From the moment I met them, […]

They made their FIRST family pictures look so easy and effortless. I really can’t believe that they have never had family pictures taken because their kids were pros!! They were the best sports and they listened so well. We got their session done so quick and without any tears. They were funny and silly, they […]

I’ve known Bonnie and Dan since just after they were married, 11 years ago. There was a time, not too long ago, that they thought they might not be able to have any children. They struggled with infertility for many years and I too know the pain and heartbreak of infertility. I know how it […]
