Grace & Rory | Wedding

Grace and Rory decided to go for an intimate, backyard wedding rather than the big flashy venue.  But!  They may have been small(er) on space, but they made up for it with fantastic food, amazing dancing, and smiles as far as the eye could see.  These girls get extra credit, because they actually did their…

Emily & Rod | Wedding

Emily and Rod are celebrating one year married!  To celebrate, they decided to squeeze back into their wedding attire and have their wedding portraits done all over again!  I first met Emily & Rod last year, when I did their engagement session for them.  I remember Emily being very concerned over feeling natural in front…

Tiedemann Family

Let’s talk extended family sessions today.  Have you done one?  What was your experience?  I find the trick to making them run smoothly is to get on the kids’ good side as soon as humanely possible.  If you win the kids over?  The rest of the session is a breeze.  The end result is fun,…

Hello Friends

Here's a great place to keep up with my clients, my family, and even some pretty macro images!  My blog is a place where I can offer a highlight reel of my client's lives, but also where I can kick back a little and incorporate some of our own family memories too.  You may even find some photos of my silly puppy Watson too, because often he sits more still than my kids do for a photograph!  Well, I guess it helps that he can be fooled with treats - my kids are too smart for that.
