I’ll be honest with you. Moments before writing this I had almost lost hope that I would ever be updating my website again. I mean, I hadn’t lost hope because I’m here…blogging…updating it. BUT for the past 4 hours, I was sliding down a tunnel of chat queues, emails, tech support, and a 40 minute […]

I’ll cut right to the chase. These two. are. so. awesome. And the story is just beginning. 

Jake + Naomi

How do I describe this girl? I should have her dad or mom write this. I’d love to know all the things they have to say about Gracie. Gracie Gracie. Grace. A beautiful word for a beautiful girl. And literally…a woman. Like..she’s not a little girl anymore. I remember when she was born. All the […]

This session was SUCH a beautiful day in the sun with my friends. We saw fishies in the river, although I think it was just the sun reflecting in the ripples. I saw an older brother care so much for his younger one. Showed him how to smile to the camera. I saw boys who […]

Andrea | West Point Senior

Some times in life you come across people that you don’t want to forget. Luckily for me, I come across several of these kinds of people. Jade and Pierce and their whole family for that matter are these type. Simply sweet, kind, generous, amazingly cute, and down to earth are a few words I’d use […]

Koch Wedding

When my cousin Amanda texted me up asking me to possibly come visit and take some photos of her husband and kiddos as a surprise, I jumped at the chance. Yes of course! See her husband, Josh, is also a photographer, and a really talented one at that. When we floated at our Grote Reunion […]
