Motherhood, Newborn & Family Portraiture


November 18, 2011

It’s a personal thing, getting married.  Allie and Aaron wanted something simple. Something meaningful. And something truly theirs—which is why they couldn’t think of anything better than to have their closest friends and family surround them as they vowed to forever. The Reunion Cabin in Custer State Park was filled with homespun details and family […]

They shared a dance at his cousin’s wedding, and have a photo of that moment hanging in their apartment. “It’s horrible,” she told me. Not so because they didn’t know what to say, or because they weren’t as light on their feet as they may have hoped. But because that photo is awkward. And for […]

Outside of the church it was cold and dark. The rain didn’t even consider a short break—not even for Dustin and Tyffany’s first look. I was disappointed. But most of all, I didn’t want Tyffany to be disappointed. Inside the church I found a bride, smiling and laughing and tearing up at the thought of […]

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 […]

Nathan and Mary are from North Dakota, and I didn’t get the chance to meet them before their wedding day. I like to get to know my couples throughout their engagement with meetings, phone conversations and a photo session. Because we didn’t already have the kind of connection that comes with meeting face-to-face, I was […]

It had been awhile since I’d seen 4:30 a.m., but let me tell you, it was worth it. I met Dustin and Tyffany at his brother Joel’s wedding in June, and despite the fact that I knew I wouldn’t be able to find their house again, I was excited to be invited back to take […]

Gen is a girl who knows what she wants. The first dress she tried on was the one she chose, and she knew it was absolutely perfect. When she and Josh couldn’t swing the fall wedding date she’s always dreamt about, she planned a gorgeous fall wedding anyway.  And her groom is all she’d ever hoped for […]

When I was a kid, we lived in several different houses, and eventually left Wyoming for my dad’s new job in South Dakota. Each of those moves were made for good reason, and each new home brought new memories. Even so, I’ve always been a little envious of kids with roots deeper than my own. […]

I met Dietric at the football field, where he was armed and ready with an idea. And a ladder. He climbed his way up the goal post, and mentioned that it was a little more wobbly than he expected. I nervously tossed him the footbal, and tried to work quickly. Dietric is my first senior from […]
