It is no lie that I LOVE light. I mean, I live and breath by the lighting of a session or wedding. If there is overcast, that’s totally fine, gives us more options on locations. But give me some flare, and I am in heaven.   That’s why timing is so important for natural light […]

Portraits should be fun. Any kind of portrait session should show you for who you are. Who you are right this moment. If you are a goofy family, then you should be goofing off.   Case in point. My sister’s family.   My brother-in-law is the least serious person I know. He makes jokes about […]

I recently put out there wondering what YOU guys wanted to know. My one and only comment (thanks guys! jk!) was about family sessions. I will be honest, I have wanted to post something about family sessions and things to expect and how to plan. So, this is perfect! Family session season is just around […]

I am finally blogging my last 2017 wedding, five weeks before my first of 2018 🙂 Truth is, I was procrastinating on this post. I wasn’t ready to end 2017 yet. It was such an amazing year, with amazing people. It will be hard to beat. I met S at the Marshall bridal show in […]

Twins: two unique souls united by birth.     ~Unknown Author These two certainly are special. I was honored to capture their senior year. Both are amazing athletes and beautiful inside and out. Their future is certainly bright! We met up at the shop first and got some studio shots.   Classic. So many sports! This […]

In case you don’t know. Tracy-Milroy-Balaton made it to the Girls Basketball State Tournament for the first time in 20 years this year. It was pretty incredible. Those girls were out for blood, and came back with the consolation. Our whole town is so incredibly proud of them. One of those amazing girls is S. […]

Get ready, I have a few senior shoots that will be hitting the blog this week 😉 M had scheduled her fall session in October. The day of her session, it snowed. No joke. When I was putting my students on the bus after school, it was snowing on us. I told M, “don’t worry, it looks […]

I just had Carlie’s reveal session last night and was thrilled with how much her and her mom loved her photos. That is one of my favorite parts of a session, hearing the reaction 🙂 Again, with Carlie, we got to hang out a bunch. She opted for summer, fall and winter photos. It was […]

Want to know what I love the most about my model program? Getting to know my seniors. We do a mini session in the spring, then most of them book my seasons package, so I get to hang out with them multiple times throughout the year. Madison was a blast! I had taken her brother’s […]

Guys. This wedding. I love everything about it. I spoke to J about their day and what they were looking for and I knew we were a good fit. Then we met in person, and that confirmed it. A & J were so organized, they even had the location at the venue where they wanted […]
