I Love You, Two.

Some days I have to pause at the overwhelming reality that I have a child. Countless bottles on my bathroom sink. Pump parts everywhere. Our tidy living room now cluttered with baby toys. Milk bags in the freezer. Endless loads of laundry. Diapers and wipes and more diapers, oh my! 2,413 things you need to […]

If Given the Chance

Jemma Mae | 2 Months

Over the past several years, I’ve had the joy of photographing families, children, seniors, and couples outside in the beautiful and natural landscapes of southwest Nebraska. And I’ve loved every single minute of that natural and dreamy golden hour. That golden glow from the sunsets in Nebraska simply cannot be beat. But over the years, […]

My Big Announcement

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

Thank you to sweet Georgie, and her momma, who came to my little basement studio yesterday so I could share these pictures with you! She was such a doll and listened so well. It made for such a fun afternoon! Such a cute, little personality and so sweet – inside and out! And goodness gracious, […]

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…

Day 62 Gone, but not forgotten. Quite possibly the hardest morning of my life. Although I had your dad with me holding my hand, I was afraid. Even though our sweet midwife was just a text away, talking me through it, I was afraid. Even though she told me exactly what would happen, and even […]
