Motherhood, Newborn & Family Portraiture

I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with Caleb a few weeks ago, and am really excited to share some images from his senior session! Caleb has been working at the 1880 Train for the summer, and because he knows so much about it and had a few ideas, we hung out […]

It’s hard to imagine that I met this beautiful girl when she was in middle school—a couple of years before we became cousins in-law (that’s a real thing, right?).  It feels very sudden that she’s a senior in high school, prettier than ever, and on her way to doing bright things. During Miki’s short break […]

I usually don’t post on Saturday, but since it’s been way too long since my last post, I decided that I didn’t want hold off posting my favorites from Jack’s senior session. Jack and his family (remember Mallory?) moved to Omaha last summer, so I felt incredibly lucky when I got an email asking if […]

I hadn’t planned on posting these, since Kendra’s fall senior session wasn’t that long ago. But these two made me smile, and I just couldn’t help myself. Thanks for a fun afternoon!

Last week I followed a red Kia Soul out into the country. Through pine trees. Over cattle guards. And onto the most perfect property for senior photos that I’ve ever seen. It was a dream, really, with a lake and dock, boats, outbuildings, and a back road covered with aspen leaves—fallen gold confetti. And then […]

I love photographing seniors. There’s always a little bit of excitement bubbling just under the surface, and it usually boils over before the session is over. With Kendra, the feeling hadn’t been contained at all, even before we even got started. She had a few perfect locations in mind, and seemed to take in every […]

Sometimes it’s nice to not have a plan. Taylor knew she wanted a few senior photos with her dog, Sprite, but other than that, was open to ideas and suggestions. And wandering. Which is my favorite. I met Taylor when I coached her volleyball team her freshman year. The thing I loved most about her then […]

It’s official.  I’ve turned into one of those ladies that say, “I knew you when you were only this big.” I may not have said that verbatim, but it’s what I was thinking last week as Kaitlynn stepped into the passenger seat. When my family first moved to South Dakota, little Kaitlynn was our neighbor, […]

It was a slightly windy and enormously beautiful evening when I met Sierra in Custer State Park for her senior photos. She brought along several outfits, a few ideas, and her truly helpful mother. It wasn’t long after introductions that we were chatting up a storm. You know—intellectual stuff— like straightening curly hair and being terrified […]

I love it when I get to photograph the same person or family more than once. It seems there’s always more to talk about, more in common, and the nerves are all but gone — because now we’re old friends. Not to mention how blessed it makes me feel to be invited back. I first […]
