"Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can't remember who we are or why we're here.” 
Sue Monk Kidd

Stories that matter

Carrie and Drew wanted to capture their family right and remember “how easy it is to just be together.” This time is precious as soon their son Spencer goes off to college this fall. My mama heart feels for them! Tessa and Spencer were great and friends; capture your older kids too! They are such […]

“how easy it is to just be together”


When I asked what makes their family unique Christine shared, “we are all lovers of stories, especially inspirational ones which speak of overcoming.” She also shared they are a family of half extroverts and half introverts and that maybe what makes them so unique is that they are so “UNalike.” I just love that- reminds […]

“lovers of stories”


This beautiful family welcomed Eliana to their crew last month. Sonja shared, “we are sleep deprived parents with full and grateful hearts. This session will help remind me of how real His mercies are new everyday morning in this season.” What an honor to be invited to capture these moments. We captured their beautiful and […]

messy miracles


I met this dear family when they had only 2 littles and I was invited to capture the birth of their 3rd son a few years ago. Since then they have added 2 more and the kids are such a fun & adventurous bunch. Taylor wanted to capture the “tiny-ness and crazy-ness of their large […]

the tiny-ness & crazy-ness


Erin & Tryce welcomed their sweet baby girl Nanyori Gene and they are properly smitten. Even after 4 kids I forget how tiny newborns are when they arrive. Capturing Erin & Tryce when they were eagerly awaiting their baby girl (and I knew she was a girl but had to SHHHHHH!) and then seeing them […]

Welcome Nanyori

Joy & Titus & their right now


Dear Mama, I know you might feel insecure with your body. So many of you reach out and jokingly say, “you can make me look thinner right?” And I get it- I spent years looking at images of myself with disdain, picking apart the imperfections I saw. We live in a culture that constantly tells […]

Dear Mama, Here is why I won’t Photoshop you


Laura reached out to invite me to capture her extended family. Their family ha been capturing this large group photo for years and it was awesome to be able to plan the images for this year. I just love the Grandkids with Robert & Carol especially the candids and the few images of just them […]

Family Tradition captured


When Adina reached out she wanted family portraits that were different from the norm so we decided to keep it simple but very THEM- “loving, energetic, & fun.” We met at a park in their community and of course we included their brand new puppy Diesel (and pretty soon they won’t be able to pick […]

Loving, Energetic, & Fun
