Engagement portraits at Mueller State Park :: Samantha + Joe

I’m very fond of Samantha. I’ve been photographing her since she was a teenager! Over the years I’ve documented a few milestones in Samantha’s and her family’s lives, but I’m extra excited about this one: she’s engaged to a great guy! Their wedding is scheduled for next summer and I can’t wait! In October I spent a glorious, golden afternoon with Joe, Samantha and her daughter Izzy at Mueller State Park, taking their engagement portraits. It’s a beautiful spot and I love how these came out. I can’t wait for their wedding!




What a sweet little family they make!

Nicy’s 40th birthday portraits

I got really behind in sharing photos over the summer and fall, and some great shots got neglected. Case in point: Nicy’s 40th birthday photo shoot, which definitely deserves to be seen! Sooooo, better late than never, please enjoy these fun portraits  Nicy is a wonderfully evolved and positive human and I was so glad to capture some of her joie de vivre in pictures. Instead of lamenting turning 40, she celebrated it and I love that! It was truly a pleasure photographing this gorgeous woman!

Shery + Ken

Hot couple alert! Shery and Ken get all dressed up every year for a fancy annual event held by his employer. This year they decided to document their gorgeousness in a series of portraits at the Mining Exchange before heading off to the party. Wowza! Just look at them! They made my job easy!

Introducing Parker Rose!

Bump to Bundle of Love clients Ashley and Ryan had their baby, and she is the cutest little peanut you’ve ever seen! Parker Rose was a little premature, so she only weighed a little over four pounds when she made her debut. She’s one of the tiniest babies I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing. But Parker’s a little fighter, and was out of the NICU and home with mom and dad within just a few days. We did these pictures last week, when she was seven days old. So adorably sweet! Congratulations Ashley and Ryan! She’s beautiful!
