It seems like just yesterday sweet Sophia was a brand new baby, and now she is 6 months old! Still sweet, but also so curious and silly. She spent our session wary of the crazy lady with the camera, watching the ducks and wrapping her parents around her little finger. This baby girl is LOVED with a capital L.:)

I had a great time catching up with this family, and capturing sweet Sophia. I also loved that we choose to shoot the session in the same park as Mom & Dad’s engagement session a few years back.

Check out my favorites from the session…

    Nikki Reino - SO BEAUTIFUL



It has been a few years since I have had the pleasure of capturing the W family, and my oh my how these adorable boys have grown! We had a great time catching up, talking about everything from Dinosaurs and  spaceships. We ran down wooded paths and froze like statues. In short, we had an awesome playdate and took a few fun photos. It was a perfect evening!

Check out some of my favorites…

Just a few short weeks ago it was my pleasure to capture Becky & Earls’ beautiful and emotional beach wedding. All weddings are special, that is a given, but some just stand out. In my job as a story teller I love getting to know my clients, how they met, what drew them together. I have to admit Becky & Earl’s sweet story stole my heart. Some times you search for love, and some times it finds you weather you are looking or not.;)

It really was our honor to capture B&E’s moving wedding celebration. From the getting ready giggles, to the moving & emotional ceremony, to the super fun reception, and end of night campfire, it was a beautiful day to capture.

Check out some photos from the special day…

    Nora Sheils - You captured Becky & Earl’s day so well! Lovely!


Oh how I love a sweet baby boy. Especially when they are good for me and my camera.

The M family was darling to work with, even their curious and protecting boxer was darling.:)

But as wonderful as Mom, Dad and Puppy were, baby Drew stole the show. He was sleepy, smiley, and oh so good for me.

Check out the images from our session together. I loved capturing these guys!

What a wedding season it has been! I have been all over the state, and captured so many different love stories. I have adored all of it too, but this one is special to me. Not only are AJ & Christina beautiful, and fun to work with, they are my friends. They cared and loved on my little boy for two years, and they did it with so much wonderfulness. It was my pleasure to capture their stylish, joyful and fun wedding. It was all things urban, colorful, and fun. Like really, really fun.

I adore these guys, and their friends and family. What a night!
