Wow. Wow. Wow. How this little man has grown! I cannot believe how much this dude has changed in the past year. Following along with his first year of life is such an honor as a photographer. Gibby & his momma met me at Vanderveer Park for his 1 year session. We waited...

Erika & Kody went back & forth on whether to postpone their wedding to 2021 or switch things up for a more intimate wedding this year. They chose the latter & are truly handling COVID-19 wedding life in stride! These two teased me at the start of the session that they'...

This new momma & I have been friends for quite awhile now. Having met Anna through pageantry, we became fast friends. She's quirky, loud & bravely herself, which is such an admirable quality. Anna is so herself in fact, that her last year competing at Miss Iowa she too...

My favorite little neighbor met me in the park for a VERY quick Fall session. Gilbert wanted nothing to do with mom & I, so considering he lasted a hot 10 minutes we were both pleased to grab a few quick moments on camera.

Happiest of birthdays to this sweet little lady! Miss Amelia turned 1 & celebrated by stripping down to her birthday suit in the middle of the park. In all actuality, she first covered her beautiful dress in frosting & then mom made the executive decision to ditch the...

 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...
