I had a great time taking these pictures for the Schmitt family. We were able to shoot at the family farm, so the location was meaningful and provided a great background for the pictures!

Becky and Tom are celebrating 50 years of marriage. Their kids and grandkids were all in town so it was the perfect opportunity for a photo shoot. I couldn’t be happier with how these turned out!

I took Laura and Nick’s wedding pictures back in 2018 and it was great to see them again. It was hot and humid but we still got some great shots. Despite the weather, baby Etta was a perfect angel!

It was great to meet this family and take their pictures! We did half of their session in home, and half outside on their property. It was a beautiful night and I couldn’t be happier with the way these turned out.

Rachel and Austin combined their engagement session with their family pictures and I love the results! We had a cold afternoon but I’m glad the sun was shining.
