I am 1 in 8. I have unexplained secondary infertility.  I have one miracle and I thank God every day for the blessing he is in my life. I do not take it for granted that he is a miracle and that I have NO idea how we actually were able to conceive him with […]

Who is your family? Are they just the people who are actually related to you, or is your family bigger than that? I come from a big family, I’m the oldest of 7 and I have 24 {soon to be 29} nieces and nephews. When we are all together it’s A LOT!! – and we […]

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 […]

The Parker family is full of personality and you can bet that we captured it during their family photo shoot.  The light that night was BEAUTIFUL and I love the colors they chose, it made their photos so light and airy with that soft glowing light. This is one of my secrets when planning and […]

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 – […]

I had so much fun photographing Alexa and Tyler a few months ago – yes, I’m still way behind on my blogging, but now we can all dream of warmer weather and relive summer again!! When this GORGEOUS girl was a baby, she used to come to my house at 6am and spent 3 days […]

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 […]
