I realize in-home newborn sessions tend to look very peaceful and serene – even ethereal. There’s a reason for that – when you freeze time during a season of such heightened emotions and tenderness with a precious new baby in the spotlight, that tends to be the result. Believe me, this session had all of […]

I’ve photographed this kid a whole bunch, and every time has been wildly different. Makes sense, right? They change quite a bit in a year, and with […]

This delightful family was made even richer in personality, love and energy (at least for the kids) with the addition of baby Sorenson! He charts unbelievably high on the cutie scale – we’re talking 100th percentile. What an honor to hang out with him for a morning! It was anything but dull! Who wants a […]

There was serious Nebraska beauty the night the Andersens hung out with me for photos on their acreage. Great people, big skies, chickens…it was heaven! Christina and Charles are raising three lovely kids. Owen, Caitlin and Kayliana are nothing short of charming. Hands down, the best part of my job is gaining so many new […]

This family just may actually be part sunshine. Sammi and Steven and their adorable children filled my day with it, at least! We had an intimate, chill family session at their home, and I got to catch a sweet glimpse of life with the Kaisers. Will. His crinkle-nose, tooth-baring smile is to die for. His […]

I enjoyed the most laid-back, natural family session with these four. Erick and Tracy have the SWEETEST little boys. Christopher and Collin were so fun to photograph, and they have such a cute, budding friendship that’s going to last forever. I can feel it! Christopher must have doubled in height since I last saw him. […]

Prepare your hearts! There is so much tenderness, genuine happiness and grace being exchanged between the three members of this family, and it’s a mighty thing to witness. Elizabeth and Will welcomed their daughter Eleanora a few weeks ago. She is so magical! This girlie is a top notch snoozer. She just snuggled away with […]

Welcome back to the blog, Erika, Stefan and Sophia! Six months with a new baby takes no time at all. Sophia has morphed into a busy, playful, smiley girl, but hasn’t lost an ounce of sweetness. I love that she is nearly a 50/50 blend of her parents’ looks. She unmistakably belongs to them! The […]

Hey, hey, the McElravys are back! These three are patiently waiting for the arrival of their new family member! He is super loved already, and it’s clear he will be welcomed with so much excitement and affection. While it’s rather hard for me to believe that Harriet is already three, going on four, she made […]

Will and Elizabeth are the epitome of happiness. They are so dang cute, and they can’t help but smiling over just about everything. Do you remember their GORGEOUS – and chilly! – wedding? It’s impossible not to love them, so I was ecstatic when Liz emailed to tell me they were expecting. One set of […]

What a joy to spend a morning getting to know Evelyn and her wonderful parents! I fell for her hard and fast. She is a squishy bundle of tiny, sleepy perfection. She even did my favorite baby pose! Rhett and Jolene are the kind of people who make you feel so comfortable right off the […]

I absolutely love getting together with this crew. They are so full of life, always joking with one another and the kids are total straight-shooters (inspiring laughter from dad and head shaking from mom). I always leave smiling and full of energy. They’re awesome. Remember Calvin? Remember how cute and adorable and little he was […]
