Spending time photographing families is so special to me because I feel like I get to see a little glimpse of the soul of each family. This family has one of the most beautiful, fun-loving, and kind souls that I’ve ever captured. Their love for one another radiates out of every smile, every loving touch, and every good-natured joke. I loved the time I spent with this three precious people and I am thankful to call them friends!

It is a tall task to capture the essence of a family in just a couple of hours – their likes and quirks and the unique way they experience the world. That is my main goal when I go into a photo session – to capture families as they are on their best days. The days when the phones are away, the tv is off, the chores are done, and the calendar is clear. And that is why I LOVE in home sessions. It is my sweet spot, my calling, my bliss. I don’t care if you don’t think your home is beautiful – it is. It’s beautiful because that is where you live and love. And when you let me in, like this sweet family did, I promise to do my very best to capture your story.
Meet the Morris family. Loving, energetic, creative, and loyal. They graciously welcomed me into their home and into their lives and I am a better person for it.
She woke up to the sound of rain on her wedding day. Knowing her reception was going to be outside and their back-up plan wasn’t ideal, she prayed for the rain to stop and did the only thing she could do – went back to sleep. When she awoke again, the rain had stopped and Jill got up ready to marry the love of her life in a wedding that went off without a hiccup. By the end of the night, the dirt and grass marks on Jill’s dress told the story of how she and Adam soaked in every moment of their day and packed in as much fun as they possibly could.
Jill and Adam, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful wedding. You are two of the sweetest, most passionate people I know and I am so thankful I was able to watch the next chapter of your love story begin. Many blessings for a long and happy marriage!

Daniel and Jessica are the sweetest couple. They share such a beautiful, comfortable, and playful love! It was such an honor to capture their engagement photos and I know their June wedding is going to be perfect!
Special thanks to Flawless Faces for Jessica’s gorgeous hair and makeup! Jessica is the kind of girl who could look beautiful 30 seconds after she rolled out of bed, but Flawless Faces really made her natural beauty shine.
Onto the photos!
