I had the best time with these kids, they were so helpful; wanting to hold my reflector and pose for me. They were talkative, and so funny. I could have stayed and taken their photos for hours, and seriously look how adorable they are with their mamma – those outfits are PERFECT. I love it […]

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 […]

Lucky for me, I have lots of brothers, 5 to be exact, and I got to take Jeff and Christie’s photos while we were in Utah as well. We basically just went up to Tibble Fork every day I was there. {and it was totally worth it, because the view is AMAZING!!} The kids were […]

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

Nauvoo holds a special place in my heart. It’s where the Mormon Pioneers were driven out of their homes and land as they searched for a place to live in freedom. It’s the last place they settled before they trekked west to the SLC Valley. It’s a sacred place, if you’ve ever been there you […]

When Patti contacted me for a mother/daughter session I was SO excited. I loved their last session so much and I was so excited to work with them again. Her girls are just the cutest and I knew that we would have a great time together. We tried to wait as long as we could […]

It was pretty clear from the moment they stepped out of the car that this little girl brings this family so much light, and has them all wrapped around her little finger. She was the sweetest, most adorable girl the whole time, and she was very cooperative while we were doing this photo shoot. Most […]

Eight is considered the age of accountability and once you are eight, you are able to choose to be baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is a special day. The ordinance of baptism is performed as you are dressed all in white. It’s a day that most children […]
