When Kimberly emailed me to set up a fall family session, I was overjoyed! They are such a sweet bunch. And I'm so glad they came back to have me photograph them again! It just reminded me that I need to hang out with Kim more often. :)
This cute family gained a new member since last I photographed them! I was so excited to capture them in this gorgeous poppy field. It's such a magical location, because it's kind of hidden. And it's pretty awesome that I live only 5 minutes away from it. :)
I know it's probably not okay to have favorite sessions, buuuut... this one was amazing. There were still some blossoms on the trees and there were pretty little dandelions all over the ground. And to top it off: the cutest couple ever. I just can't get over how good these photos turned out! Definitely in my top 5 favorite sessions ever!
The Bergren's have been some of our best friends since me and my husband have been married. They are THE funnest couple to hang out with.
So when we heard that there was a super bloom of wildflowers at Death Valley this year, we took a little road trip to see it and take a few family photos! I'm so glad we went. It was gorgeous! And such a fun backdrop for this awesome family.
Even though I ended up getting sick pretty much immediately after this shoot, the photos turned out better than I could have hoped. And we had a blast!
Here's another one from last year, a gorgeous September wedding. I cannot get over how lush and green this venue was. I'm missing that green so much right now. Go away winter!
There was a small sprinkle of rain which scared us all a bit, but then the clouds parted and the sun came out. We couldn't have planned a more perfect day if we tried!
I just realized that I never blogged this session back in October! Whaaa? It's a good one, so I'm glad I'm getting it up today!
I was ecstatic when Brittany contacted me for updated family photos. These are a close-knit bunch and were so fun to photograph. And they were kind enough to let me test out some black and white film, which turned out pretty awesome!
Bethany and Kendall braved the February cold with me and we got some of the sweetest pictures! They had no trouble warming up to the camera and giggling and snuggling together. What a fun session!
As I was putting this post together, I was listening to the Hamilton soundtrack (anyone else as obsessed as I am?!). And the song Helpless came on. It was so perfect. If you haven't heard it yet, then get listening! I've included it below so you can listen as you look at this cute couple.
I had so much fun with these blue-eyed boys. Those tickle-fight photos will forever be my favorite. There's nothing like capturing pure joy in a little child's face!
This couple. The last time I saw them was when I photographed their wedding, almost 5 years ago! It was so fun to catch up and to see that they're still just as in love as the last time I saw them.
Just for fun: can you tell which images are film?
When Corina came to me with the idea to take pictures at the State Fair, I was ecstatic! And a tad nervous, if I'm being honest. It was crowded and there was a lot for little Reagan to be distracted by. But we got some really fun shots! I loved our deep-fried oreo tasting, carnival light-lit time together.
This couple was a dream to work with! Their love for each other really speaks through these images and is better than me talking about it. So, take a look for yourself.
It was so fun to finally meet Brooke and her family! We've met online, through blogging, but never had the chance to meet up. Until now! And right before they move to another state. Perfect timing, right?
Little Claire is quite possibly the cutest, happiest baby I've ever met. I loved capturing her sweet face!
It was so much fun to photograph this lovely lady! I've known her for years, and she truly is incredible. I know she's got a bright future ahead. :)
This was my first shoot with my new medium format film camera, the Mamiya 645. Film is so different than digital, but I think I'm starting to fall in love with it. I'm so happy with how my images turned out!

The Young's are such a fun family. They're kind, funny, and so down to earth. It was a pleasure capturing them.
