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. […]

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 […]

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.

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 got extra giddy and excited at the first glance through these photos after a super fun session with this crew. Is it the red-headed children? 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 […]

I get to share another beautiful extended family session with you all today! There was lots and lots to love about this one.

Wild amounts of fun were had with this sweet family, which comes as no surprise. Can you even believe these twins are so grown up? I hadn’t seen them in a year or so, and it’s truly crazy how much changes in so little time. I’m over-the-moon that Elizabeth asked to do the session at […]
