Devoted , gracious, encouraging, whole hearted and beaming are just a couple of the words Haley and Justin use to describe their relationship. Can I also add fun, welcoming, laid back, and full of life? We got COWS in the background which was very important to Haley. Justin and Haley work with them daily and […]

Haley + Justin

The world of fostering a child is one full of ups and downs and so many emotions we didn’t even know we had. At least that’s what I’ve heard and read from friends that foster. You give your heart away, only to have pieces of it taken with when it is time for the child […]

Finally, at a Jake Owen concert, they connected and the rest led us here. I am beyond excited to […]

Brenda + Seth | Engagement Session

It was a total surprise this day being sunny since the weekend before this one (late March) was a total blizzard! Although it was pretty chilly outside, the sun was shining and these two had the most perfect day surrounded by so many friends and family that had nothing but love for these two!

Jenny + Ryan Meyer | Fairbury Wedding

“My name is Elle. E-L-L-E.” She spelled it for me. I already loved her. She had the right amount of sass, her mother’s sparkle, her grandmother’s smile, and probably generations upon generations of heart. Three generations of beautiful here.
