welcome to

the blog!!

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 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 […]

OH. MY. GOSH. I Love these pictures SO, SO much!!! {I know, I know, I say that about EVERY session!!} And it’s true. Every time! I love their flowy dresses, the soft, beautiful colors and those adorable flower crowns! I love the white lace flowers and the beautiful sun, but most of all I love […]

I had SO much fun working with the Pilizota family!!! When Solange asked me about family pictures, she didn’t want them to feel too posed, or unnatural.  She wanted them to feel joyful and candid.

Several years ago this young elder was serving in our area as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  I loved having the missionaries in our home. 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 was literally sitting here working on this blog post when I saw on Instagram {because I’m always totally distracted and checking social media}, that Stephanie and Jake were finding out what they were having RIGHT NOW!!!! SO, I waited patiently {probably not really} and then messaged her so I could find out and tell […]

As my eyes caught her’s in the sealing room, tears of joy ran down both of our faces as all of her dreams came true. My heart was bursting for Christine, Andy, and their children. The joy and happiness on their faces as they walked out of the LDS Chicago Temple could be seen by everyone […]

I know that Family pictures are SO MUCH WORK!!!! No matter how young or old your kids are, no matter how much you prepare in advance or how much warning you give your spouse, family pictures are still STRESSFUL!!! {believe me, I get it!} I want you to walk away feeling like you LOVED your […]
