I’m an on-location, natural light, creative, portrait photographer focusing on maternity, newborn, family, + children. This blog combines my latest photography work, glimpses into my life, and things that inspire me.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7

One of the sweet family’s from my church and my middle child’s best buddy… 🙂

To My Lego Man…

I think you might have 10,000+ legos in that box…at least. Your absolute favorites are the Lego men and you are often in your own little world having Lego men battles and building ships and cars to transport your men from one place to another. These aren’t just any battles…these are battles with dialogue and sound effects that J.J. Abrams would be proud of. 🙂  I find these little guys everywhere…in the washing machine, in the car, under the couch, in your bed, in your pants pockets, on the floor, inside your sisters toys, in cabinets, in drawers, etc. I used to be annoyed by this…especially when I stepped on one with my bare feet. But now, I see those little Lego men and I think of you…your silly, vivid imagination and your ability to lose yourself in it. I pray you never lose that as it is one of the many things I love about you.

On this day, you were in search of your Lego men…all of them. ♥

Blessed be childhood, which brings down something of heaven into the midst of our rough earthliness. ~ Henri Frederic Amiel

This family photography session might be one of favorites…it was all the things that childhood should be…



Full of Laughter




Overflowing with Love

Teenage boys and urban settings are just plain cool. Kameron was no exception. He is the same age as my oldest and as it turns out they go to the same school. It’s a small world I tell ya!  Kameron and I hung out, talked a little football, and laughed. As a photographer, when I work with middle-school boys, sometimes they are not happy participants (read:: mom made them do this). Not this guy…Kameron was such a good sport and is a great kid…he knew this family photography session was really important to his mom and she is important to him. Love says whatever is important to YOU is important to ME.
