This Gray's Lake family portrait session was such a fun time! I got to reconnect with Kelly, who I haven't seen in many years. She has such a beautiful family and her boys are the cutest! Am I right? Even though it was a pretty cold day, surprisingly since it was the beginning of July, we were able to capture some beautiful family memories! Thank you Kelly and Craig for hiring me to capture these special moments!
This day, this light, this couple! These two are so clearly perfect for each other and every emotion portrayed in these beautiful images tells of their love story.
I feel beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to capture this styled shoot with another wonderful photographer, Kate of Kate Elizabeth Photography. After seeing her shooting in a park one evening I kept wondering who is that photographer, the very next morning a photo of the girl she was capturing at the park came up on my Facebook newsfeed and I realized it was this talented photographer I had been admiring for a long time! I couldn't help but reach out and book a mentoring session with her. I am so glad I did! It's funny when you meet someone in such a random way and you end up having so much in common, you realize it truly isn't so random, it's Gods plan and timing. I'm so beyond thrilled to have made a new friend in the photography community!
From the moment Chase and Tatum arrived they were so joyful, which made the whole session that much more fun! They were the most PERFECT models! Chase's goofy grins and silly whispers had beautiful Tatum laughing oh, so naturally the whole session! I love to capture such joy!
Words truly cannot describe how I feel about this session! Thank you Chase and Tatum for being so wonderful!
This sweet mama to be is absolutely gorgeous! I enjoyed capturing these sweet moments for her and her growing family!
We spent the evening at my favorite venue, Sugar Grove, which is where I was married. It's the most beautiful and serene location out in the country overlooking acres of farm land, a beautiful pond, and vineyards.
Thank you MaKayla and Brent for trusting me to capture these memories for you guys, I can't wait to meet your sweet little girl!
I have known Jackie for as long as I can remember. We grew up together. I can remember being beyond excited about having school night sleepovers because we were in dance together and it was easier for our parents for carpooling purposes since we lived all the way on opposite sides of the town, both in the country.
The first time I met Zach was most likely at Georgioz, the popular place in town for pizza. I knew from the first time I saw them together he made Jackie happy. The way Jackie's face lights up around him makes my heart melt. I love that he makes her heart sing! Just look at her in these photos, her sweet smile says it all!
I'm thrilled to share these photos of this adorable arboretum session with you. We were so close to getting rained out but thankfully God cleared up the sky just in perfect time. There were so many laughs, a lot of nuzzling, and silly whispers between these two love birds during our session! I love to capture such true emotion, joy, and love. Thank you for being my wonderful models!
While I was back home visiting my family in Iowa I was able to book some photo sessions and I was thrilled when Karen reached out to schedule a family session. I've known this family for as long as I can remember. We lived two houses apart in our quaint neighborhood. I used to babysit Jess when she was a baby and now she is a junior in high school! I cannot even believe it! This family session was full of beautiful sunlight, smiles, and wonderful conversation. Thank you for allowing me to capture these moments for you!
Another amazing senior session with my cousin Holdon. This session took place in the beautiful city of Omaha. We had a great time exploring some beautiful downtown locations which were the perfect backdrop for Holdon's session. It was such a pleasure to capture your senior photos!
Sadie is my sweet cousin from Arizona and I had the opportunity to capture her senior portraits in early June. I haven't seen Sadie since she was a little girl and she has turned into a beautiful young lady. We spent an evening in the country side capturing the beautiful golden sunlight with some amazing locations. There is nothing better than driving around the country in Iowa stopping at all the beautiful rustic locations to capture senior portraits! We sure had a blast!
I'm beyond excited to share this gallery of images with you today. This session was an absolute joy. Celenia is a beautiful girl inside and out and I've had the pleasure of getting to know her over this past year! She is naturally beautiful and a super great model!
