Hazel Ann

Well, you've seen a little of Miss Hazel's birth story, so now I guess it's time to meet her! These were all taken in the hospital the day after her arrival.


These are two really great big brothers! They are so good with her and weren't intimidated by her tiny, wiggly self! I was quite impressed actually :)

Special Delivery

Beautiful. Amazing. Those are the only words I can get to come out.
Back in December, I had the wonderful pleasure of being with Jordan and Cody for the birth of their sweet daughter, Hazel. Jordan and I planned during the weeks leading up to her delivery - all the possibilities, the things that would be going on that day, and the photographs that she would like. Well, in the end, everything turned out imperfectly perfect! :) Hazel gave us a small scare (very small) so there wasn't an opportunity for mom and dad to told her for a few hours. My heart was broken for them as I stood there, watching their precious baby whisked away with mom only getting a glance of her. But, Daddy had a watchful eye on her the whole time. And he took such good care of Jordan. You want to know a kind, generous, sweet, thoughtful, amazing couple? In my opinion, here they are (and I won't say which traits belong to whom).

What is a Professional Photographer?

From the iPhone to DSLR, almost everyone owns a camera these days. And for everyday moments, your iPhone or consumer DSLR camera are perfect! But, when it's time to have portraits made of your family, where do you turn? How do you know which photographers really know what they're doing? Here's a short video from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) to help as you sort through your options.

I have been a member of the PPA since 2009 and earned my Certified Professional Photographer designation in 2011. We'll talk more later about what a CPP is... But in the mean time, what can I do for you?

Cute Crazy Kids

So, I've said that babies are my favorite... but children seriously are a VERY close second! I love seeing their personality, getting to be goofy with them and taking their lead during a session. Kids are just awesome! Here are a few highlights from some sessions with kiddos.

Babies Babies Babies

Children and family portraits are my specialty. But babies, now that's my absolute favorite! Here are a couple sweeties for you to drool over! (more coming later)

Family session

This is my beautiful friend Teresa and her sweet kiddos! Fortunately, I have the privilege of photographing them often! This session was for the Christmas card, and some new home decor :)

New Life - Christian

It was my privilege to photography the beautiful baby Christian before he went home from the hospital (ok, so it was a little while ago, but still too cute to not share anyways)! What a sweetie!!
