I always enjoy having this family in front of my camera! They always have so much fun together and it’s clear how much they all enjoy being with each other. This year we were even able to include the family dogs!

Faith was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot last year, and I’m so glad she asked me to take her maternity pictures! I enjoyed getting to know her and Austin and couldn’t be happier with how their pictures turned out.

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.
