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 […]

There are some people who you know are meant to be a part of your life, who are placed in it at just at the right moment and who make such a huge impact on your world.  As Christmas is only a week away, and I find myself once again missing my family in Utah, […]

To the Johnson family, I loved meeting you and your extended family, it reminded me so much of my family and spending time with all of my siblings. For me, the hardest part of doing extended family sessions is trying to remember all of your names. I’ll share a little secret with you, –  I […]

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 had so much fun in the little town of Wheaton, I love all the brick, the awesome white wall and the beautiful park right in the middle of town. I love the huge Wheaton chair and we had so much fun capturing a part of the city for the Smith family to remember when […]

I was so excited when my new AJ friend Liz Binder was looking for someone take her extended family pictures. I’m not sure I was thinking straight, but I volunteered right away. Liz is also an amazing photographer in the area and I was so nervous that I would be able to do a great job […]

  I love meeting high school seniors for their senior photos. Sydney actually graduated about a week before we took these pictures. Time got away from them and they didn’t happen last fall and that’s totally ok!! Senior pictures can happen anytime, there is no time limit! Most seniors contact me during the summer between […]

AWE! I loved working with this family. I could tell right away that they weren’t extremely comfortable getting their photos taken, who is?, but I wanted them to have a good experience and to have photos they would love. I worked really hard to try to get them more comfortable in front of the camera, […]
