Best of 2016 : Portraits

Over the past 12 months – I have been able to not only pursue my passion of being a wedding & portrait photographer – but I have built some friendships with some of the best clients. We are so grateful for not only a year full of weddings, but also being able to have over 100 portrait shoots in the midst of it all.

These images have been taken over all 12 months of the year – some in the freezing cold, some in the hot sun, some in the midst of a rainstorm – and every shoot has been something I am so grateful for!

Thank you so much for trusting me to capture all of your seasons. From finding out you were expecting a baby and your growing baby bump, to the first days of your baby being home as a newborn, from your family & children growing up, to engagements and couples and even 25 year anniversaries.

Two times this year I hosted mini-sessions and both days were full of back-to-back sessions with beautiful families. Two of my favorite days of the year! They are always such a success – our hope is to do 4 mini-session days in 2017 to allow more people to be in on the action!

Now – for the images.

But first – one more time.



If you are interested in booking a portrait session for 2017, we are now booking for all months of the year!

Best of 2015 : Portrait & Family

Is it just me or did 2015 go by faster than I can even imagine?! I can’t believe we are celebrating the New Year and flipping the calendar to January tomorrow!

This year was fantastic, and I am so incredibly grateful for all we were able to accomplish. And even for the weekends that we had off! We not only spent a lot of time photographing beautiful people, but we spent time with family, friends, and each other! It was a refreshing year!

To be honest, I am not always the most consistent with blogging, so some of these images, while being my favorites have not even made it to the blog yet. I wanted to do a big post to show off some of the people and families who made my year amazing! These aren’t even all of the beautiful people I was able to meet and photograph this year, but these are some of my favorite images! I think they will bring a smile to your face!

I am so grateful for your continued support of my business. Sometimes, I think it is good to take a minute to reflect. Looking back I felt so excited to see the growth in my business, in my images, and even in my confidence as a photographer. Thank you for your encouragement, referrals, and your business.

Now, for the images!

I was able to capture families in every season of life…



Lots of couples! From newlyweds, engaged couples, and even couples who have been married for years…


I even was able to photograph a surprise proposal!


Some adorable babies!


And some seniors about ready to graduate!


2015, you were amazing.

I’d LOVE to meet you & take your photos!

The Dream Team : My 2013 Seniors

Graduating from High School is such an exciting time, and I am so blessed to be able to capture this season of so many people’s lives. The seniors that I was able to photograph this past year all are heading in so many exciting directions with their lives. One is headed to the East Coast to study to become a doctor, a few are headed to colleges in the state to start their Associates Degree, another is planning on becoming a pastor so that he can share the hope that he has. They all have exciting plans and dreams for their futures and it is the BEST thing to see!

If I had one piece of advice for all of my seniors, it would be this. NEVER ever ever stop believing that you can do whatever you want to with your future! So many people thought that my dream of becoming a photographer was a little far-fetched and that I probably would be done a few months after starting. Well, 3 years later, I’m still here and having my best year yet. You CAN do whatever you put your mind to. It helps to be surrounded by people who support and encourage you through the hard moments! I wouldn’t be here without the constant support from my family and friends. Also, in Proverbs, there is a verse that I have seen proven true in my life. Keep this in the back of your mind. Ask advice from people who you trust and know that they have wisdom that will be helpful in getting where you would like to go!

“For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers.” – Proverbs 11:14

Besides being smart and full of goals and potential, these seniors are GORGEOUS/HANDSOME! Honestly, take a look.

If you or someone you know is graduating in 2014, Summer/Fall is the PERFECT time to schedule your Senior Portraits before your year starts filling up with college visits, finals, and prom!
