Lifestyle Portrait | Lisa

Pin It

I met Lisa almost a year ago.  It turns out that we both have something in common.  One of them being We both love what we do!  She has a knack for making people feel comfortable, and for bringing out the best in them in their work place and in everyday life.  And she just so happened to throw me a surprise baby shower, which was beyond sweet!  She also loves animals, and has since started her own in-home pet care business.  Check out her website here!  We met up on a perfect summer afternoon for some portraits to celebrate loving where she is in life right now.  Her husband and kids are the light of her life, as well as her sweet pups, who you'll meet in just a minute.  Lisa always has a smile to share, and her laugh is contagious.  Her outlook is always bright and sunny, so it was fitting that we had gorgeous sunlight for her session!  Without further adieu, please enjoy some of my favorites from the day!

Let's start with one of my favorites!  

Hello, Rodney and Stanley!  Aren't they adorable?

I love Lisa's smile - yes, she is always this happy!   

Gorgeous, gorgeous.  

It was just easier for her to smile after a few serious photos!

More smiles and laughter, love it!

I think your hubby needs to frame this for his office!

Rodney and Stanley were so well-behaved...I secretly think that they loved having their portraits
taken, especially it it meant snuggling with their mama! 

I'll end this post with another favorite.  Lisa, you are beautiful, inside and out!

Lisa, thank you so much for letting me capture this happy time in your life, it was truly an honor!
See you soon!

Family | Tanner + Katie + Kathryn

Pin It

This time of year, I count my blessings more often than usual.  For example, I photographed a sweet senior in late summer, as well as another wonderful senior last fall, and they both referred this next adorable family to me!  It's no wonder I love my job - my amazing clients refer their amazing friends and family to me, and the amazingness keeps on going!  I truly do have the best clients!  Meet Tanner and Katie, and their beyond adorable daughter, Kathryn, who was just shy of 5 months old for our session!  She was all smiles as we started the session out in her colorful nursery before heading to their family's lovely wooded land!  As the sun set, it quickly turned quite chilly out so we made things happen so little Kathryn wouldn't freeze!  It was so fun to witness just how much they adore their daughter!  And once you see her bright eyes and smile, I'm sure you will too!  Thank you, Tanner, Katie, and Kathryn, for sharing your evening with me!  Can't wait to hang out again!  Friends and family can view their online gallery here.  And now for some favorites from the day!

Kathryn loved dressing up in her teal tutu!

LOVE!  My favorite!

 You two are beautiful!

Isn't Kathryn the cutest?  I just love her little boots!

Another favorite!

Snuggle time!

So smiley, despite the chilly evening!  

Kathryn was whisked away by a family member to warm up. 
Meanwhile, I had a few minutes with Katie and Tanner.  

I love both of these!

You two are adorable!

Tanner, Katie, and Kathryn!!! It was so nice to meet you - you're such a sweet and happy family!  
Thank you for making your session so much fun!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Pin It

Hello friends!  Just a quick post to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!

Of course, I'm thankful for many things: my amazing husband, loving and supportive family and friends, my health, a job that I love, our pup and kitty, a warm home, etc.  However, this holiday I am especially thankful, because we have a new family member to celebrate with us! As most of you know, my husband and I had our first child in September.  And life hasn't been the same since.  Remington has been such a joy (despite fussy times!), and he is already 2 months old!  His bright smile, sweet cooing, and snuggling have brightened our days in ways that we didn't know possible.  And for this, I am so thankful.  I hope to share some of his newborn session soon!   For now, here are just a few photos that take note of fall's colorful beauty.

Happy Thanksgiving!Pin It

Senior | Class of 2013 | Shelby

Pin It

I know I always say this when it comes to photographing seniors, but it's true - I absolutely LOVE it!  Somehow I always get the honor of working with down to earth, cheerful, all around wonderful seniors!  And, as you'll see, my latest senior is a beauty, inside and out!  Please give a warm welcome to Shelby!  We met up on a beautiful August evening to capture this special time in her life, her senior year.  She loves hanging out with friends, and plans to go into the dental field.  Shelby, I wish you all of the best as you finish your senior year and head off into the next chapter of your life!  I have no doubt that only amazing things await you!  Enjoy some of my favorites from Shelby's senior session!  Friends and family can view her entire online gallery here.

We had beautiful summer evening light, we couldn't have asked for better weather.  Ok, maybe it was a bit warm...I was almost 9 months pregnant after all!  
Don't you love Shelby's adorable dress? Love the details!

Shelby, you are beautiful!


Ok, ok,  I have too many favorites! 

Oh, the light!  Love this!


Another favorite!

Work it, work it!  Yesss!

Shelby has such beautiful eyes, they just sparkle!

Shelby, thank you so much for such a fun session!  You are amazing, and I'm so honored that I got to document this special time in your life!  Enjoy your senior year!
