Christopher is on the blog! With his wonderful mom and dad of course. This little guy is sweet, silly & has those perfect “melt you” eyes. Both mom and dad are totally into him. His cute little smirk is just the dang best. Also, Tracy, you’re so pretty! 🙂 I look at this photo and […]

Admittedly, I use a lot of superlatives in talking about my rad families, couples & babies that grace my presence and give me the honor of capturing photographic moments of them. That’s because they are freaking amazing and I can’t help myself. But I will say, with 100% truth-telling confidence, that I have NEVER laughed […]

So, there’s this guy named Aaron. He is super cool, a little edgy, extremely likable and has rare and awesome hobbies like making his own furniture (nbd) and hosting epic film-viewing parties. He loves this pretty girl named Emily. She is… like… a model (not really, but woah) except she’s down-to-earth. She’s also artistic and […]

Heartstrings, prepare yourselves. I’m so happy to welcome this family back to the blog today. I’ve had the honor of photographing them many times before and I cannot post their photos without retelling that John & Jami were the very first people to ever hire me to photograph them for maternity photos with baby Lillian.

There may not be a happier set of grandparents in the state of Nebraska. The evening these photos were taken was a special one, celebrating this beautiful lady in the middle with a surprise birthday party as she entered a new decade. Her kids and grandkids had come from near and far, and we marked […]

I hold firmly to the belief that when a session is *nearly-but-not* cancelled for weather, it’s destined to be extra-good. Case in point: this amazing evening with the Knudsens! The whole day had been cold and dang windy, but the sun burst through the parting clouds about fifteen minutes before we nabbed these beautiful photos. […]

Best day! Guillaume and Jennifer are on the blog! When I met these two, all I could think about was how endearing of a couple they are, and how unbelievably lucky their baby is to have them as parents. What a sweet family. The feel of maternity sessions is so sweet. Love is in the […]

I have such a special session to share today! Let me start with full transparency: it’s not every day I get to photograph a couple in Steve & Cindy’s stage of life. I spend a lot of time running around with little kids, capturing the super high energy and playfulness of young families. So when […]

I hadn’t seen Anne in years, but recently had the sweet privilege of meeting her family which just grew by one tiny, cuddly person (talking about the baby, not John, although he’s nice, too). 😉 Caroline is what heavenly baby dreams are made of – cheeks for days, mesmerizing eyes, big smiles and lots of […]

She has arrived, and she is already a personality-filled firecracker of a sweet baby girl! I’m referring to the darling baby Adelaide, of course. I had the pleasure of meeting her and documenting a few hours in her brand new life, and it didn’t even take the first five minutes for me to fall in […]

Two incredible people have become three! That will never cease to be an awe-inspiring, crazy, wonderful, party-worthy statement. Let me introduce my friends John & Ella (new titles Mom and Dad) and their tiny & perfect sweetheart Henrietta. Ok, so they may have gone by ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ before with their pups Sasha and Indy, […]

I’m doing my happy dance here at my desk (yes, really) thinking about photographing these cuties as they walk down the aisle a year from now. Do we reeeally have to wait that long??? Will & Liz are a magical duo in all the ways. The way they look at each other, care for each […]

It’s like the cherry on top of a good sundae when a family I’ve photographed in the past decides their whole family needs to get in on the action. In this case, I’ve photo’d two of these siblings’ families before, and finally got to meet the whole crew! They even brought great-grandma! On the right, […]

They’re back, they’re back, they’re back on the blog! The Harlows are, simply put, fantastic. You all know I love big families, and these guys are no exception. Seth & Liz can laugh at just about anything, and that’s a beautiful way to walk through life – especially when you have four children you’re modeling […]

Color me obsessed with this session, this family, all these colors, and baby Keavy – star of the show! There’s so much genuine laughter in these because this girl is a funny one. She can turn her emotions on a dime, for just a split second, and I think she’s gonna be quite a firecracker. […]

I don’t know, but something about this family makes my heart all happy and fluttery. They’re just so darn wonderful. It’s been a year and a half since I’ve […]
