If I haven’t said so already, I am beyond excited for all that 2022 will bring because my couples are so much fun! Katie & Kyle, while so darling together & entirely too easy to love, had me feeling like I was hanging out with old friends. Blame it on Katie & I’s shared Dunlap […]

I had the opportunity to sit down over drinks with Elizabeth & Jim to hear about their love story—something that is happening less & less with my couples due to the pandemic. Let me tell you: it was so refreshing! They shared with me that they met through a dating app (Coffee Meets Bagel) & […]

It felt like Clare & Kyle were long time friends of mine during their Champaign engagement session last week. It’s a stretch but they could pass as “old friends” because I first met them four years ago when shooting Clare’s older sister’s wedding. Technicalities aside, Clare & Kyle have a way of making anyone feel […]

After about 15 minutes spent with Taylor & Brad, I felt like I’d known them forever. In the photography world, I think that’s how you know you’re working with “your people”. You know – the people you’d be friends with outside of work. What’s even better, as much as I enjoyed getting to know these […]

Spring is in the air & it felt so good to break out of winter hibernation for Skyler & Matt’s engagement session. Don’t let the warm glow of the sun fool you – it was still pretty cold (darn wind!), but that didn’t matter because my time with these two seemed to fly by. After […]

The unique nature of my job is not lost on me. As I was editing Randi & Kraig’s images last night, I was humbled by this thought. I have the invitation from my couples to experience their love stories first hand—a privilege to say the least. Yes—being in front of a camera & allowing that […]

October was packed full of engagement sessions & I treasure the time spent with so many of my 2021 couples! Want to know something funny?? Out of the last six engagement sessions, only two couples did not include their dog! And of those four that brought their four legged fur baby, only one couple actually […]

Autumn & Shawn’s engagement session almost didn’t happen! You see, Autumn’s ring had to be serviced & the day she was set to pick it up (the day before our session), she learned their was a temporary shutdown at the jeweler’s due to the pandemic.

It is not unusual for clients to show up to sessions & tell me they are not photogenic. My response to this statement is always, “I don’t believe you,” because I honestly refuse to believe anyone simply does not photograph well. However, I have never had someone tell me they do not know how to […]
