"I was at the hospital photographing a baby at 48 hours fresh today!"

"Wait! So you were at the hospital for 48 hours taking photos of a baby?! How do you charge for that?!!?!"

"No, no no! (laughing) The baby was 48 hours old!"

The Day After sessions are something I don't get to do very often, but LOVELOVELOVE them! They are a simpler, more affordable option of newborn photos and they are simply the best. If you know me, you know I'm a simple girl. My photos are not super sophisticated- you won't find an outrageous amount of props and set ups in my photos. I prefer them that way. Now don't get me wrong, all the props and stuff sure are adorable, but I like photographs that capture and document people and moments for what they really are with minimal distractions. There is something so timeless about simplicity to me. (more…)


We were cleaning up the day after our wedding when Deb came out to check on us. She asked us the age old question, "so where are you going on your honeymoon?" "Colorado one day!", I replied. Deb continued to tell me how her son was getting married at their ranch out there in June. I jokingly said, "if you need a photographer, call me up!" We chatted a little more and then we went back to cleaning up.

A few months later I got a call from Deb asking about my availability for June 13th, quickly flipping to my calendar and happily seeing that I had the date available we proceeded with creating plans to travel out there! My goodness, what a wonderful experience it was! I'll post more about that another day! (more…)


It was 19 degrees that day. With the love and warmth shared between Steph and Kyle, you'd never know.

With a beautiful couple, venue ceremony and one heck of a party, it was the perfect wedding it kick 2015 off with!

Enjoy some of my favorites :) (more…)


This family. Oh, this family.

It has been an absolute blessing to have met them.

They have graced me with so many wonderful opportunities... My favorite so far you ask? Being asked to photograph Courtney + D's destination wedding in FLORIDA!!

Within the past year or so, I've become this family's family photographer.

I photographed the oldest daughter's wedding in July, I photographed the youngest sister's senior portraits in 2012, I've photographed a cousin's senior portraits, I'll be photographing the youngest child's senior portraits this summer, and on Saturday, I got to photograph such a beautiful day for the 2nd child.

Meeting the Rhein family has been a blessing. I first met Lexi last summer and asked if I could take her senior photos. She agreed although she had a scheduled appointment with another photography company. Mrs. Rhein didn't think too much of- that I was someone just getting into photography but agreed to let me come over to their farm. I went to their house and photographed Lexi and shortly after returning the CD I got a phone call stating they loved her photos, had canceled their other appointment and they HAD to have me photograph Kelly & Seth's wedding in July! I quickly agreed and a few months later I found myself being asked to photography Courtney and DeAndre's wedding in Florida this February! Hopefully I'll end up doing Conrad's senior photos as well! I've become their family photographer and their 'hidden gem' as they like to call me ;) (more…)
