Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of photographing a private mass and baptism for a pretty incredible Notre Dame family. 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. Each family brought a different priest which made […]

This summer, I received a call from one of my good college friends telling me she was coming to town to help coach ND Softball Camp. She then went on to confess that she had never had professional photos taken of 9-month Syndey and certainly none of the two of them together. Dad, Ryan had […]

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 […]

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 […]

2015 was quite the year for me. A difficult pregnancy with a happy ending and a business busier than I could have ever imagined. Needless to say, when the ball dropped I was counting my blessings. Each and every one of them. I got to see so much happiness through my lens this year. I […]
