Weddings

“A wedding is much better than a funeral. “ The room is nearly silent, only whispers of sniffles, and deep sighs of relief. This is a day that nearly didn’t happen. Just a few short months ago, the life of our bride, Emma, was uncertain. After a strong and courageous fight, Emma woke up from […]

I first met beautiful baby Vann when his family signed up for my Christmas Mini Sessions. It has only been a few months, but I am blown away by how much this beautiful boy has grown! The little straight haired boy, is now an (almost) walking, curly haired one year old.

Christmas Mini Sessions have come to an end, and I am already missing them! I’m wondering- If I never take my decor down, that means I don’t have to set it up again next year, right? In all seriousness, It really is hard to believe that this year has come to an end! I’m finding […]

As we shoot on this unseasonably warm fall day, she picks flowers, takes her time soaking in the environment. She is a […]

When I first met Luke, he carried himself with a quiet. calm, and youthful presence. On a work outing to a Chicago Cubs baseball game, he set a row behind myself and his sister, Cassy. He hardly spoke a word to me, but watched the game with a quiet intensity. Over the next few years, […]
