I met with Kari on a chilly foggy morning – but it worked out to our advantage!

I LOVE the eerie feel the fog gave us!

Sigh – I love shooting in cornfields!

LOVE that shot in the leaves!

Kari – thank you SO much for braving the chilly morning! I LOVE how your images turned out! Have a GREAT senior year!!

I have a weird thing about getting matching photos of the boys.

I wanted a year shot that matched Fitzy’s – so I had to take Enoch’s a little early since November wouldn’t be a good time to have him outside and shirtless!

That bottom shot is the canvas I got for his YEAR picture – ONE YEAR ALREADY!

Those photos CRACK ME UP! He is such a sweet sweet boy!

He’s such a happy little guy!! (And I’m quite behind on blogging since he turned ONE yesterday)


He looks SO MUCH like Fitzy in that last shot!

Enoch – you are the happiest baby I know! You are a dear boy. You love to eat zucchini bread and strawberries. You love drinking out of your brother’s cups. You love to say I DID IT! You walk everywhere – even run! You are MUCH faster than your big brother! You love your Pa and Gramma. You snuggle and give hugs. You love seeing Fitzy as soon as you wake up. You complete our family. We love you!

Baby *V* was an absolute doll!

I LOVE those shots!

She was such a little sweetie! Thank you again!!

I LOVE Stephanie and her family!

We did bridal sessions and her wedding! Her maternity session too!

They’ve lived out of state – so this was the first chance I got to meet little *G*!


AWESOME! Little guys are usually hard to keep still – but that’s why it’s fun!!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots! Golden hour for sure!!

The power of a praying wife …

I brought along the quilt from their maternity session – just because!

And sometimes – the best shots aren’t even in focus!

Stephanie & Zack – I love you guys! Thank you SO much for asking me to capture your moments!

I met Jan at the Arnot Mall Bridal Expo in 2013!

She came up to my table and said – You did my cousin – Justine’s wedding – and from the moment I saw those pictures – I KNEW you would be my photographer!

Absolutely GORGEOUS! I was so excited to shoot at the Troy Fairgrounds!

They’ve spent most of their lives showing their animals and spent a lot of time together in the barns and the grounds! An absolutely perfect spot to say I do!

LOVE LOVE LOVE those shots!! LOVE!

My dear Aunt Lori came along with me to second shoot – that shot on the right is one of hers!

Any of the photos without the db logo – Lori took – again – the one on the right.

And I’m so glad she was at that spot! While I’m confident I can capture your wedding photos – it’s always nice to have a second shooter!

LOVE the reactions coming down the aisle – always one of my favorite things to shoot!


Again – I loved shooting at the fairgrounds!

It POURED at the start of the reception – but cleared up just in time!

This might be my favorite ring shot – EVER!

Again – LOVE these ones!


Jan & Nick – thank you SO much for having me capture your wedding! We had a GREAT time!
