Sugar Grove Maternity Session I Brent + MaKayla

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! 

Arboretum Couple Portraits I Zach + Jackie

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! 

Zahn Family Session

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!
