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 thought it would be fun to do a getting to know me post. I don’t know if there is anything exciting about me, or anything you don’t already know, I’m pretty much an open book, but here goes. My name is Liberty Dawn. I’m the oldest of 7 – I have 1 sister and […]

It was fate that brought them together. Fate, and an empty seat at church. When their friendship kept turning into “I can’t wait to tell Alex this” they knew they had something special. It was an honor to be a part of Alexis Holman and Alex Bennett’s wedding day. I met “Boy Alex” many, many […]

I casually commented that I wanted to come…..and of course, they both agreed that I […]

I have 5 brothers, 3 of them served missions around the world. One served in Virginia, one in South Africa and one in the […]

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE capturing families at home. I love how these pictures turned out, I love the white chair and the beautiful natural sunlight. I love the red, white and blue. Do you think it would be weird if I hung these up in my house? 😉 I’m teasing Liz. Mostly!! I was so […]

When Sarah contacted me again to do family pictures I was so excited, I did their family session last winter and it was one of my favorites! I was excited that they wanted to go back to Lilacia Park where they were married. I was a little disappointed that all of the liliacs had already […]

I had no idea when I signed up for Amy & Jordan’s Photo classes a year ago how much it would change my life.  I’m really not being dramatic, I can’t believe the difference in my photos, my confidence, my workflow and my social life. I have met some of the most amazing, helpful photographers. […]
