Jill + Kyle | March 29, 2013

This wedding was amazing. I feel so blessed to have couples that trust me every step of the way in capturing their wedding, and the anticipation leading up to it. I took their engagement photos last summer, and I thought it was so special how Jill wanted to return to the spot where we did those to reenact some of their engagement photos on their wedding day.

The first photos we took after their first look were also so special. They wanted to take photos sitting in the pew that they usually sit in for church on Sunday mornings. I got to silently observe how they interacted with each other while they were alone in those moments. They whispered to each other as Kyle softly stroked Jill's arm with his fingers… and how Jill so comfortably rested in his embrace and looked him in the eyes as they smiled and laughed with excitement as the day unfolded...

During dinner I got to sit with Christopher, Felisha, Bethany & Alex…. past and future clients of mine. We talked wedding plans and reminiced about the past, and in those moments I looked around and felt so overwhelmed with joy! I was surrounded by such amazing people and clients who have trusted me to tell their story. To let the world view their story through the product of my lens. I feel so blessed, so honored, and so humbled that I have these amazing clients that make my job the best in the world. Cheers to the newlyweds, Kyle and Jill! Happy friday!

The Families of Mini Sessions 2014

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I held mini sessions at my studio and I would say they were my most successful set of mini sessions yet! I love shooting in my studio - I think the lights and walls are magical. Come visit me some time soon!!

The Evenson's came to me for Christmas mini sessions in 2012 and I was so happy to see them back. I love Elise and Ava! They are just adorable in their blush dresses. Totally my style.

Look at this adorable little guy! The Maas wedding was one of the first that I captured, now I am photographing their sweet little boy! I love my faithful clients who return to me for such special pictures!

Mini sessions wouldn't be complete without seeing Rachel, Jordan, and little Ian! I hadn't seen him since he was only a few days old! I have NEVER seen such a happy baby! He is all smiles. Their family holds such a special spot in my heart!

Another Reese Family! They also did Christmas mini sessions with me in 2012 and since then they have added the littlest Mya to their family! Love these adorable little girls!

Oh man… this little guy melts the heart. Such a well behaved sweety. Loved the giggles that these guys shared during our session.

WOW. Meet Lai Lee, everyone! A few weeks ago I received and email from Lai Lee saying that she found me on instagram and she was interested in mini sessions. I was SO excited! 1.) Because Instagram is my favorite form of social media, and 2.) because doing portraits for women is my favorite, and I really wanted to do more of that in my mini sessions. When Lai Lee got to my studio, she was so kind and open to any ideas I had, and her vision for the session was perfect! We bonded immediately, rattled off tons of ideas right from the start, and the rest is history. I am in love with these images that we were able to capture in a quick 20 minute session. Thanks for being a great subject, Lai Lee!

Last month when I did mini sessions I had an opening that I was dying to fill-- So naturally, I asked my brother and his girlfriend to come model for me around the studio building! I'm so happy I did because I love how the photos turned out!

It's amazing what you can capture in a quick 10 minute shoot.
