What happens when you put twin 2 year olds, a 4 year old, and a 9 month old together for photos? Hilarious, chaotic fun! You may recognize some of these little faces from baby’s first year sessions over the past few years here and here. AllView full post »


Mitch is such a cool kid. He’s quiet and is an old-soul type who likes to spend a lot of time fly fishing. You may remember his big sister Ellie from a few years ago. Both kids are super cool and I want to be like them when I grow up ;) WeView full post »


It was so much fun to photograph my beautiful cousin’s senior session. I cannot believe that she is graduating already!! I remember this girl as a baby and that seems like it was five minutes ago. We had beautiful weather and it was funView full post »

Rachel & Scott

Where. To. Even. Begin. Rachel and Scott’s wedding (who you may recall from their engagement session last fall) was of magnificent proportions. Everything was larger than life and everyone had such a crazy fun energy. Their incredible affairView full post »
