Motherhood, Newborn & Family Portraiture


August 7, 2014

This perfectly paired couple traveled to the Black Hills to visit family a few weeks ago, and I felt so lucky that our schedules aligned long enough for an early morning engagement session in Rapid City. It was my favorite type of session—the lighthearted kind where we walk and talk and stop for a photo […]

I recently traveled to Nebraska to meet up with my sweet friend Abby, and her very handsome, very kind, husband-to-be, Marty. I followed her down miles of dusty road to the couple’s future home, peacefully nestled in wide open space. I met Chester, Bones, and Banjo, laughed and chatted, and witnessed what I can only […]

Happy Friday, friends! Meet Patrick and Julie. They’re fun. And sweet. And completely smitten with one another, which made my job very easy. They came to Rapid City from Minnesota to visit family over spring break, and they couldn’t have chosen a more perfect afternoon for photos. They brought along their two sweet dogs, which […]

I absolutely fell in love with Lisa and Aaron when we first met, and couldn’t have been more excited to take their engagement photos. Unfortunately, we had to reschedule twice: the first time for my husband’s surgery, and the second time because it was much too cold. But let me just tell you, having amazing […]

I’ve been so excited to share Brent and Amy’s engagement session! These lovebirds traveled across the state during a cold snap for a not-so-warm engagement session. Although freezing, the weather made a for a perfect setting as this pair doesn’t shy away from a little cold. Brent proposed while they were visiting the Black Hills […]

Just before Christmas, Jessica and Sterling traveled to South Dakota for the holidays. As luck would have it, they were here right before Brett and I were leaving to visit our families, and were available on the only afternoon I had free for their engagement session. I’m so happy our paths crossed! Jessica and Sterling, […]

Before winter decided to stay, I met up with Courtney and Travis for their engagement session. Courtney is a book lover, and couldn’t think of a better place than Mitzy’s Bookstore at Main Street Square to begin their session. I was delighted with her idea, as it’s always fun when couples incorporate a piece of […]

I’m thrilled to share Joe & Dani’s engagement photos today! This good-looking pair chose a snowy, slick, post-blizzard fall day here in the hills, but it couldn’t have been more perfect. I can’t wait to photograph their Terry Peak wedding next year! Joe and Dani, thank you for making the drive to Custer State Park, […]

If ever there were two people completely comfortable in the company they share, Justin and Kristin are them. We started out in downtown Rapid City, at their favorite hangout, and ended up playing fetch in the park with their ever-loyal friend, Bailey. I really couldn’t have asked for anything better, and I feel so very […]

This adorable pair made the trip across the state to visit the hills for engagement photos (on Mike’s birthday!), and I couldn’t have imagined a lovelier day and couple for a relaxed session at the Game Lodge in Custer State Park. And though it’s no secret they’re incredibly good-looking (just wait and see!), it’s also […]
