I will admit. I am totally guilty of falling down the “shoot and burn” black hole as a client. Paying good money to a great photographer to take lovely photographs of my family and then letting them sit… and sit… and sit… in a beautiful digital gallery…. (gasp) forever. That did me absolutely no good. I made zero […]

For some families, football really is life. Beth is a dear friend of mine from the kids’ school and Mike coaches for the Fighting Irish. The Elstons are some of the greatest around. And their three girls are pure sweetness. When Mike called me for a gift certificate for Beth, I was so excited. I […]

The first time I met Kevin and Kelley, I knew we would be fast friends. Kevin instantly made fun of my husband’s eating habits so I knew this was built to last. Kelley was about halfway through her pregnancy and I remember spending part of our evening together wondering how on earth she was able to […]

Summer with my four rascals in the house is the real deal, so I’m a little behind in blogging some ridiculously adorable sessions… like this one! Back in June, I had the pleasure of spending the most gorgeous evening with the cute Schoenle crew. We ran, laughed, swam, jumped and had a crazy good time. […]

Meet the Morrison Family. They’re the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. Recently, I got to spend a morning with this crew of 6, primarily to welcome their newest addition, Macy to the family. Macy isn’t quite newborn anymore, but is the happiest, most “go with the flow” 2 month-old on the block. And these […]

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to photograph nearly an entire grade of First Communicants at Christ the King Catholic School. It was such a blast getting to know the kiddos, the families and most importantly, seeing how excited they were about their big day. I got to hear so many amazing […]

Recently I had the opportunity to stomp on my old grounds with Emily, a darling member of this year’s Notre Dame graduating class. I love the idea! I remember graduation day and how hectic it was. Thousands of people everywhere, in the backgrounds of all of your photos (Gasp! Especially the one in front of the […]

Recently, I had the pleasure of meeting the sweetest newborn baby girl to good friends, Jessica and Stuart and oh my. You would never know this was their first. They were such rock stars with a newborn and if you’ve ever had an infant in your house, you know what a shake-up it can cause. In the […]

I love every birth story I hear. They are all so unique, so different, yet so alike in that they all have blaring similarities in the end…. joy-filled hearts, beaming smiles, tired eyes and warm cuddles. All of what I remember a newborn experience to be I saw in Collin and Courtney when I came […]

There were way too many images to share in my Best of 2015 post, so I decided to break them out into categories. First up… babies! Shooting babies in their natural environment is one of the sweetest things I get to do and in 2015, I got to meet so many tiny friends. Watching siblings make sense […]
