Thank you SO MUCH for bidding on the session! I had a great time with you guys and I can’t wait to see your little guy again!

Britanny and I have had this session set up for quite some time! Her little guy *J* turned one in June! We set up the appointment then had to move it because of rain and some little teeth coming in on *J*’s part! We got a beautiful day and a happy little guy to work with!

He has a little bump on his head from an excited stumble at church – I took it out of the photos for Britanny but had to keep it in some copies too! It shows what a boy he is!


I LOVE those shots!!

MOLLY! I loved their puppas! It’s so nice to go to shoots and love on puppies while we still miss Schrute!

LOVE that series!!

Britanny – you have a sweet little guy! Thanks so much for opening up your home to me!!

In November of 2009 – I think – Aszur contacted me through FACEBOOK! I had taken pictures at Mandy & Jason’s wedding and she was good friends with Mandy. Aszur was trying to start a photography business and was interested in learning more of how I got to where I was. I found out that she was a fellow lover of Jesus and we had the same type of personality – we hit it right off! I asked her to shadow me at a wedding in December of 2009 and we have been great friends ever since! She came along as a second photographer or as an assistant for the majority of the summer last year! Now her photography business has taken off!

Aszur found out she was pregnant with their third baby soon after we found out about Fitzy – it has been exciting going through it together! When I mentioned birth photography and the desire to have Bridget photograph ours – Aszur knew it was something she wanted too! I told her that I would totally be that person if she wanted! I was on call for the birth and waited impatiently for that text!

We were having dinner with Matt & Johna when I got the text to head to Sayre – ASAP! I already packed everything for the baby earlier that day just in case! We ran home and packed a bag for my parents overnight – drove to their house – dropped the baby off with mom while Jared slept and I headed to the hospital! I got there at about 11.45 PM – wishing that it was daylight for beautiful light flowing in the windows – but Jamison was ready to come out NOW!

As soon as I got there Aszur got her epidural and laid down to relax a little before the excitement really began! Once she knew it was time to push – it wasn’t long before he made his appearance. She got him out in 3 really good pushes when it was all said and done! It was beautiful! I cried. I laughed. I felt so honored to be a part of such a beautiful miracle!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do!

Right after the epidural!

The calm …

and the storm …

Aszur was a ROCK STAR!


Aszur & Dave – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to be a part of Jamison’s birthday! I love you guys!!

I took Zack & Stephanie’s wedding photos last year on June 19th! It was a beautiful ceremony between two beautiful people!

Stephanie is one of those people that just oozes happiness and kindness. She is uplifting and such an encouragement to others!

Zack is deployed right now – during their first anniversary – but she wanted to give him an extra special gift!

We set up a photo session in the field where their reception was so she could give him a collection of photos! HOW SWEET!


Happy Anniversary Zack & Stephanie! I look forward to capturing your life through each milestone!

I didn’t even think to take any photos on Mother’s Day – slacker – I know! I am pretty sure we were just getting by on exhaustion at that point!

But I DID remember to take some of my boys on Father’s Day!

My word – they don’t look anything alike – HA!


I love these two guys more than I could ever express!

Our friend Dee got us this blanket for Fitzy – I just had to post a photo – it’s too cute!

Thanks again Dee!

Happy Father’s Day to all you amazing daddas out there!
