In late July, the adorable Utz family called me to photograph “Papa Utz’s” 80th Birthday Celebration at the new Notre Dame Duncan Center overlooking the Notre Dame Football field. 8 precious cousins and countless friends and family members rolled in the door to wish Mr. Utz a happy birthday and a beautiful celebration it was.

Four babies joined the Catholic Church at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on campus while over ninety people, including a ton of precious cousins, witnessed.

Big families warm my heart. They really do. This summer, when Mary reached out to me about family photos at Notre Dame with her great big, gorgeous family I was so excited. It had been years since they had all gotten in front of a camera together, especially since the loss of their mother, so […]

As much as I love fall, a piece of my southern soul dies every time summer officially ends. This session captured so much of the summer beauty up in these parts, and not too long ago, I had the pleasure of joining the extended Utz family up at South Haven to celebrate Grandma Kathy’s 70th […]
