Engaged | Alex & Ben


Alex, Ben, & their son Nolan strolled along the canals at New Town on a hot summer evening.  The midwest heat was brutal but it didn’t stop them from having a blast, and at the end of Nolan’s time with us he ran free and kicked off his shoes.  Definitely cool by me! 🙂  So excited to see them all again this fall at the wedding! <3

Family | Statlers


It’s been two years since the blog has seen a family shoot, and the Statler family is back to help with that.  The little ones have grown and Tania and Travis added a sweet guest house to their home, it was the perfect place for their summer session. <3

Lifestyle | Morgan


Morgan is an art major graduating this May; she loves graffiti, music, and film photography and she wanted her photos to reflect her passions, LOVE that!  She expressed that I could be as creative as desired, I felt a sense of freedom while taking her photos and it was so refreshing to get back to my roots of individual portraits. 🙂

I tried my hand at double exposing on my film camera.  When I saw the result below, I fell in love.

Personal | Inspiration Shoot at Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas


We recently traveled to Las Vegas for a photography conference and from the moment I booked the flight, I imagined a photo shoot in the desert.  Lucky for me, my cousin and his wife live there and were totally down to help my vision come to life.  I handmade a floral crown for Rebecca to wear and stylized their outfits to accent the landscape that was like an unreal painting.  As we were driving, off in the distance, I could see the canyon bright with hues of red.  Stepping onto the rocks for the first time was more breathtaking than imagined, creating photos there was better than dreams…

Family | The Statlers


In between weddings and engagements, I squeeze in a few family shoots; the Statlers are so special to us as we’ve known Tania & Travis before their two sweet children came along. 😀  It’s been such a blessing to watch their family grow with the addition of Preston, then Cosette.  I just love when shoots are around the home, capturing moments that are real. <3

What’s the coolest way to get around the property?!  That’d be on a vintage Harley Davidson golf cart!  What great childhood memories for Preston & Cosette. 🙂
