Happy Friyay, friends! When you book a senior session, I want you to feel comfortable, excited, joyful, but most importantly taken care of – I want you to feel wholly and without-a-doubt that “I’ve got you!” And if you don’t, I’m doing something wrong. Because you’ve got your whole life to feel uncertain or unsure […]

Hand in hand, they walk towards the vineyard. Their friends and family fading in the distance. Smiles as big as the open sky. Quietly talking to each other and giggling like school kids. The sun is setting behind the vineyard. They can’t keep their eyes off each other. Drew barely knows we are there; fixated on […]

The girls huddle around her. Their cheerful and gracious smiles worn brightly on their faces. They know how deserving this woman is, and today is the day. It’s her day. It’s their day. They have waited. They have planned. They have been on the journey. And today, they will say ‘I do’ and make a life long […]

Hi sweetie, momma here. On Monday, you turned 9 months old. And I’m left torn wishing time would pause and speed up all at the same time. Your mobile little hands and legs love crawling around. I mean – can you really call it crawling? You leap frog everywhere you go. And it is the cutest […]

She floats around the room with poise and grace. Her lips pressed trying to hide her smile and excitement. Her eyes glisten a little from tears welling. He watches; a permanent smile on his face. In fact, we can’t remember seeing Kasey without a smile. But that’s not so surprising. His wife’s smile is infectious. […]

Music played in the background. Yet, she was quiet. Still. Waiting. She knew the importance of what awaited her. She soaked it in – every last second. For shortly, she would see, for the very last time, her fiance. Because soon after, he would no longer be just that. He would be her husband. And he smiled […]

The trees are white but this time it isn’t snow. An occasional petal falls to the ground. This gorgeous Spring day, Justin stands with a gift in his hand, on a sidewalk not far from their home. He’s not nervous but you can tell he’s anxious to see his bride. Kayla slowly walks, beaming with a […]

Imagine the most comfortable you have ever been in your life. Your heart is light and your world is perfect. You find comfort and delight in everyone around you. This is how I imagine Selena and Christian felt on their wedding day. And likely, the rest of their lives. While I’m sure they’d argue their […]

The Less You Need Me . . .   The more I need you. I swear just yesterday, you woke me at 2am with your little high-pitched squeal and squirming body nestling in your bassinet next to my bed. You tussled around, needing me. Your momma. And right before my eyes, it’s like I didn’t […]

There is a calmness about her. A peace. Her favorite girls flutter around her in excitement, yet she remains calm. Even as her mom and best friend laugh with nervousness as they struggle to fasten the buttons on her ivory lace gown, Carrie remains patient and still. She’s waited for this day. Her smile widens […]
