There’s so much life in the group of people you see here. So much laughter and enjoyment of simple things and love between each member of the family. SUCH a gorgeous time with them, and they made me feel like part of the fam! Ruth & Eric with their super-fun, amazing and unique grandchildren. These […]

This session makes my heart super warm and fuzzy. It just does. 🙂 This little party of three is incredibly lovable, and capturing Hattie at one year – then doing a mental contrast back to her newborn session – is a beautiful thing. Time is the craziest. Hattie is the queen of ALL the faces. […]

This day was so beautiful and saturated with happiness. Helen & Mikey seem like they’ve already been married for years – they are so naturally complementary of one another. I loved how “them” their wedding day felt from the minute I walked into Helen’s parents’ home that morning. First Plymouth, you’re just so completely gorgeous. […]

Lots of energy: check. Cute factor: check. Lookalikes: check. These two siblings are such sweet firecrackers and it was so fun to chase them around and capture all their fun. Keep an eye on almost-4-year-old Grayson throughout these photos. He is a ham and just didn’t quit the whole night! He’s been the same since […]

Everything fell into place for this sweet engagement session with Victor & Abigail. The best part? They weren’t engaged until halfway through the session! I have such a full love tank from being trusted with photographing Victor’s proposal. These two are two are unbelievably natural together. High school sweethearts, together for seven years, they are […]

I had a great time reconnecting with my dear friend Emily when we did this session with her wonderful family! They were all back at the family farm for a rare gathering of siblings from Brazil to North Dakota! It was such a treat! This first one was a particular request from Grandma – the […]

class of 2019: hudson

Posted in Other

Hudson is a senior!!! I’ve had the privilege of knowing Hudson and his family the last few years, and he is one-of-a-kind. He has a humble, genuine, committed character and he’s pretty much the nicest. Also, my daughters (who are 4 and 2) basically love him. 🙂 It’s so fun for me to change things […]

If a family invites you to their lake house to capture the true, relaxed essence of their family in their beloved vacation spot, your answer is YEP. I had so much fun with this happy crew! The original Wortmans! Paul and Sue’s fun grandparent game is strong. They are clearly adored by each one of […]

I have lots of love for this crew! When I walked in the door and saw little Veda, my jaw dropped. It hasn’t been *all that* long since her newborn photos, but time flies and babies grow up and I was shocked at how much she’s grown! Kids everywhere, please…for goodness sake, slow it down. […]

It’s Saturday. I’m blogging. Because hello, this is my sister’s family, and they’re oh-so-special to me. She and Steve brought their third adorable human into the world and we’ve been enjoying having Levi Hudson as part of the family for three sweet weeks! I am over-the-top lucky in the “aunt” department, and pretty happy about […]

Good grief, I have been dying to introduce you guys to Jack. He was born three weeks early, and was the teeniest bundle of joy! What a pleasure and honor to meet him and document his early days. Favorite feature: his forehead wrinkles! He made some amazing expressions, and would raise one eyebrow, and it’s […]

This is one of those posts where I’m struggling to begin. Sometimes the task of summing up a family’s awesomeness in a short blog post is just not realistic. And what a great problem to have! We kicked off this evening of photo-making craziness at Nate and Amber’s home, and when that works out, it’s […]

I was swooning hard before, during and after the hour I spent with these guys. Not only are they old friends, they’re the best kind of people. The kids are fun, so sweet, love to get dirty (so we did), and they squeeze fun out of everything. Love them! Justine and Andrew were among the […]

There’s not a whole lot more exciting than expecting your first baby. Everything’s about to change for Jared & Anna, and they’re the kind of people who are going to seem like they’ve been parents forever after just days with baby. It just fits them. I was beyond honored to document this time of anticipation […]

This beautiful baby lay wide-eyed, perfectly still, making the sweetest faces every minute I was in this family’s home. I am smitten, and her parents…well, they’re gonna be in trouble when it comes to having to say ‘no’ to this perfect baby girl. Hattie, you are stealing hearts already, and have so much to share […]

This session was such an honor. These three were visiting from Italy (woah!) and during their precious time with family, we worked in a photo session. I fell hard right off the bat for little Siena, who just happened to be turning ONE that very day. She is the sunniest little girl!  Gosh, these next […]
