It is hard to think of a way to describe myself so that you can get to know me better. I love having a blog because it is a place for me to show my most current work and at the same time post random things about my life. I have a deep passion for life and it is my goal to live it to the fullest. That may sound kind of cliche but it is so true. I love adventures, and people, and photography is an avenue for me to experience both in a fun artist way. Photography is an outpour of what I see and how I view life. It allows me to capture those sweet moments in life in a way that when I look back at the images I can remember how it felt to experience that moment. That is why I love my job, I get to capture pure moments for people that they will always get to take with them. I hope you will stay a while and look through my blog and get inspired.

New Website & Branding

I am so excited to finally announce that I have launched a new website and have all new branding. This has been a long time in the making for me. Karrie Pyke Design did my logo and favicon and I could not be happier. She was amazing to work with and designed exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Karrie! I hope that everyone has some time to go check out the new website.



This is my new logo and favicon









Sneak Peeks

Wow my poor blog has been so neglected. Having a 8 month old seems to consume all my time šŸ™‚ Good things he is precious. Anyways here are justĀ  a few photos from a few photos shoots these past few weeks. Much more to come later.





Four Generations

So these past few months have been all about family. Not that it isn’t normally but we have had a lot of family from out of town visiting which has been really fun. Ryan’s Papa was here from Minnesota and his sister and her family from Hong Kong. We had a lot of fun getting to spend a lot of quality with them. It was also fun watching Grayson’s cousin interact with him. Got to love all the blondes. We did a quick generational photo shoot and I am so glad we did.






Annette and Josiah looked so cute I had to get a few shots.



Love this little man!



Annette is so quick to smile. I really enjoyed getting to know this little girl more. She is so loving and quick to gives hugs. Melts my heart.






This is Annette’s camera ready smile. Love it!





1/2 Birthday

So since there is not a 31st in Feb I decided it was ok that the 29th would do for his 1/ 2 birthday. Can’t believe that this little man is already 6 months old. Time has flown and I am sad how fast it has gone. All though he is teething right now and IĀ  am ok for that to be done. To bad he has 30 to go. I decidedĀ  to take a few photos where I took his newborn photos. I don’t think I ever even posted those so I added two at the end just to show how much my little man has grown.






And we are done.



Look how little he was, so precious.






Levi : Hospital

The Sanchez family are good friends of ours and we were so excited to find out that we were pregnant around the same time and that we would have boys together. Levi was born on the same day as Cora was the little girl in the last post. Cora’s parents happen to be really good friends of ours as well. Let me tell you that was an exciting day. We hadĀ  a lot of time visiting them in the hospital and I kept running back and forth between the two rooms taking pictures. Like I said in the last post I looooove pictures in the hospital. Enjoy!









Levi : New Born

Levi is such a handsome little man. We have had a lot of fun watching this little boy grow. He is already 3 months old so it was fun to look back at these photos. Enjoy!















Grayson: 5 Months

Grayson is actually going to be 6 months tomorrow so I figured I had better quickly upload the pics I took at 5 months.






Out take! He is still perfecting his sitting skills.


Cora : Hospital

I think that taking pictures in the hospital of a new born baby are my favorite photos to take. They are some of the most precious pictures that you will have captured of your little one. I have been doing this on the side for friends and would love to start doing it for clients as well. When my son was born I had my friend Michelle come in and take some photos the following morning and every time I look at those photos they make me all teary eyed. I don’t care that I don’t look the best because it is the moments that were captured that are so important to me. I will be posting some of mine soon. Until then here are some of little Cora.













This last picture is a picture of her sister Ava when she was born 3 1/2 years ago.


Cora: Newborn

I have been photographing this family since they were pregnant with their first daughter Ava. It is such a joy to come back over the years to continue to capture a family as they grow. Cora is such a precious little girl who looks just like her daddy. He didn’t get his boy but I know that Aaron loves his little girls. Enjoy!


















Emme – Newborn

Meet Emme, isn’t she just precious! Matt & Shelly we are so excited for you as you embark on this new adventure of parenthood. We go to the same bible study so I am sure Grayson and Emme are going to be friends. Enjoy!
