Sooo….every time I think of this sweet girl, I hear Whoopi and the nuns singing “Ohhhh Maaa-Reeee-Uh!” in Sister Act. No joke. (Sorry Maria!) Maria is one of my unique Senior Spokesmodels. She was homeschooled and so she and mama reached out to me her SENIOR year for photos. Since it was the first year, […]

The Outback

It was the spring of 2010 and I held a brand new (to me) Canon T2i camera in my hand for the very first time. And boy was I ecstatic. My parents had just upgraded their camera, and I was the lucky one who would become so thankful for how this nearly $200 used and […]

The Story Behind the Lens

Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday. This past Sunday, February 2, I had the most adorable little kiddos pop on over to my home so I could snap some photos of this with this Valentine’s Day set-up! And it was a total DREAM! Look at these sweet (and a little ornery, as in my kiddo’s) faces. Sad to […]

Last Chance for Valentine’s Day Minis

Her head lightly rests on his shoulder. He leans in gently. A sense of peace about them. In their own world, kneeling towards the altar. You can almost feel the Holy Spirit hovering over them. Earlier that day, in subzero temps, Meghan, covered in lace and grace, peeks around the corner to get a sneak […]

Such a Little Sweetheart . . .

The HARDEST Part of Pictures . . .

When Jordan first asked for sunflowers, I’m not gonna lie, this 36-year-old anxiety-ridden photographer thought inside “No. That’s not a thing.” Clearly, I was wrong. Like TRULY wrong. Isn’t God incredible like that? Her Sunflower photos are some of my FAVES! And now I get to laugh at the evil one in my head that […]

Lessons from Sunflowers

(A real conversation, slightly edited so we don’t sound ridiculous.) 1/2/2020 11:34 a.m. Rachel: So what’s 2020 look like for us? Rebecca: I really love my day job. I really love event planning. I really love photography. And in order to do all those things, I need to refocus my photography into one area that […]

Walking into Twenty Twenty…

Sometimes things just work. A perfect pair on a perfect day with perfect details and perfect family and perfect fun. Is that exaggerating? Not really. Perfection is hard to attain but we can’t help but think we witnessed it on Katelynn and Cory’s big day. Katelynn has a smile on her face all day. She […]
