 PSA Miss Effie's Flower Farm is the cutest, flower-filled, golden hour, cat home in the whole wide world. It's not really a cat sanctuary, but the kittens are a total plus. 

Kaleigh, Taylor & I are going on 15ish years of friendship. I say "ish" only because...

Paige & Kyle kicked off my 2019 wedding season on the first weekend in May. They chose a beautiful venue, Barn on the Ridge, which made for the perfect place to celebrate among their friends & family. Paige & Kyle both work in ministry, so surrounded themselves with th...

These two are just the sweetest! They hands down take the cake for "most giggling" during an engagement session. Kyra has a soft spot for the Reiman Gardens, which gave me an opportunity to explore a new location. I arrived a half hour early to peek around the gardens...

I have known Paige for years. I've seen her grown from a teenager to a confident, God-focused, sweet woman. I have also been lucky enough to watch her relationship with Kyle bloom. Paige & Kyle are exactly what you dream of in a high school sweetheart. Throughout the y...

These two. I have been so blessed this season to work with such amazing couples! I've been working on this post for awhile now & after rewriting it a solid 3 times, I'm taking the easy way out & letting the images speak for themselves. Their big day was so incredibly f...

One of my most favorite things since I've started "adulting" is seeing the people I love grow as well. Seeing some of my favorite ladies become mommas fill my heart all the way to the top. I'm super glad to be blessed with the ability to capture such amazing memories....

Here's how this all went down, friends. Thursday evening I get a phone call from my cousin to confirm their upcoming family photos at our Grandparent's farm for that coming Saturday. After the normal chit chat regarding the shoot & a bit of catching up he adds "oh & I...

As of early fall I was under the impression I'd have just one Senior this year, which wasn't ideal but with the additional weddings I've taken on I was alright with it. So, come the second week of October I get a text from a family friend, her son needs photos they're...

My final senior session for 2018! I have known Grant since he was a baby, which makes me feel insanely old, but also super fortunate to have had this family in my life for so long. Grant is one of three boys, one of which was the childhood best friend to my baby brothe...
