The only thing better than capturing moments is telling the stories of the people that go along with them. I always get asked, "How do you always photograph the most inspiring people with the BEST stories?" Well, I believe it's because my clients are also my friends. I get to know them. I pray for them. I take the time to learn about them. And then, I get the privilege to share their stories of love, strength, and courage with the world.
I'm so grateful to be part of their lives. I hope I get to be part of yours, too!
Let’s turn back the clock for a few moments. It’s 1998. We are dressed in sequin from head to toe, dancing our little hearts out, and singing “Love Shack” at the top of our lungs. Get the mental picture? I bet you’re not thinking about show choir, are you? Well, honestly…we really weren’t, either. I […]
I am sucker for surprise parties. Seriously…they are the best. So when a dear friend asked if I’d be willing to photograph a surprise party for one of her sweet little first graders, I was all in. I mean, what could be more fun than celebrating with a room full of crazy, screaming, sugared-up, 7 year olds?! […]
Last summer, on a particularly tough “mommy day”, I gathered up the kids and headed outside for a much needed breath of fresh air. Kids, snacks, and strollers in tow, we headed out to enjoy the beautiful weather in our neighborhood. It wasn’t but a few minutes later, that we ran into our sweet, sweet neighbors. In […]
I’ve always loved the phrase, “God will never give you more than you can handle”. The funny thing is, ten years ago, I might have believed it…but I don’t anymore. After losing multiple people that I love within the past few years, and getting so little sleep that I feel like a prisoner of war, I […]
They say when you marry someone, you marry their family. Five years ago, I thought I was getting a pretty good deal with I married my sweet husband. But I had no idea. He has the most amazing family, and these two are part of that precious little God-wrapped, package deal. I have LOVED getting […]
They got married, they became a family, they had a baby. They suffered losses, they celebrated victories, they overcame hardships. They wake up, and live their lives in a way that honors those they love. They choose JOY. Every single day. And through it all, I get to be there. I get to walk through life with […]
I say it all the time. Yet it always amazes me. I get the opportunity to photograph the most ridiculously awesome-est people ever. Yes, that’s a word. This couple is no exception. Only took me about five minutes to fall in love with them. Their spunky personalities made the day so much fun, and we […]
This session was awesome. FREEZING cold, but super fun. Clayton was a blast…laid back, funny, kind, and did I mention insanely photogenic? Not sure he could take a bad picture if he tried. Made my job pretty darn easy. And fun. Since posting some of these images online, I’ve had several people tell me they think […]
I can’t even tell you how much I love this family, and how much fun we had doing this photo shoot…it was so refreshing. These people are some of the most genuine people I know. They have four beautiful kids, and an even more beautiful life. It’s not perfect. But it’s good. Oh, so good. The […]
I remember her in fourth grade. Sweet, beautiful, and kind. And nearly eight years later, she is still the same. I absolutely adore her. She was the smartest and most precious little 1o-year-old. And then, all of a sudden…she grew up. And my little fourth grader turned into a gorgeous, fun-loving, confident senior. I still can’t believe it. […]
