I am going to start something new. Every Tuesday, I will do a post with some helpful hints and tips. It could be about taking photos, how to prepare for sessions, frequently asked questions, etc. Let’s kick it off this week with a photo taking tip! Most of us know the “rules” of photography. Don’t […]

We hear a lot of photographers, including myself, talk about how important it is to capture your family with professional portraits. To take the time to have them done, and how you won’t regret it. We don’t say this to push our business. We don’t say this as a marketing strategy. We say this because […]

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 […]

Even though I am done having my own babies, it doesn’t mean I don’t have some baby fever every once in awhile. This is when I love capturing hospital photos after a new little one is born. I know M&E and their little girl A from frequenting their resturant Lakeside Hideaway (if you haven’t made […]

I usually don’t shoot a whole lot of newborns, but this year I had quite a few! I love snuggling little bundles, then handing them back to their moms and dads 😉  This little family came to see me in October. Baby S was so good, big sister, on the other hand, she had other […]

Let me tell you about this family right here. K and I met through our sons last year at tball. The boys quickly became great friends and K and I soon followed. She became my Beachbody coach in April and it has brought us even closer.  Photographing them was so easy, I mean, look at […]

So, I love this family. Their oldest is good friends with my boy and they are just too much fun. We got to hang out at the family farmstead and the boys were in their tractor glory! We missed the big storms that day and beautiful overcast night, just like C wanted 🙂  When’s my […]

Had a wonderful morning with this family in August. I am always happy when it is overcast, no shadows! We had free reign of the yard with no worries!! How fun was it that their foreign exchange student from Sweden from years ago came to visit with her parents, sister and kids! They were such […]
