Every year, I get so excited for January 1st. I just love a fresh start. New year, new goals, new opportunities. Goal setting is something I’ve loved since I was a kid. It gets me all jazzed up. I’ve learned over the years that I will feel flustered & anxious if I don’t have a […]

When I go back and review my goals for 2018, I’m reminded of how much progress I made this past year. I thought it would be hard to come up with specific victories that happened. Oftentimes, the past 12 months felt like a blur with almost constant demands of three young children and a business […]

The first traces of fall make me literally giddy. The temps drop at night, there is a crispness in the air and I’m craving everything pumpkin. The changing leaves signify the start of a new season that includes some of my most favorite things…football, sweaters and boots. My least favorite thing…photographer burnout. Fall is the […]

I just loved this family session so much. Their sweet little boys were a riot. They never stopped moving and kept this session at Wegerzyn Gardens Metropark moving with them. This beautiful mama, Meghan, is a talented wedding photographer based out of Troy. We met through the local TuesdaysTogether group last year. Photographing another photographer’s family […]

Shortly after a heartbreaking loss in their family this past winter, Jen emailed me wanting to set up a sunset lifestyle session at their farmhouse this summer. I could tell from her words how much she wanted to freeze time with this photoshoot to have these memories forever. In a way, it was a tribute […]

When Janel asked me if I’d be interested in doing a deployment photoshoot before Ryan’s deployment, I was all over it! Getting the opportunity to serve & bless my military families is near and dear to my heart. They also happen to be one of my favorite military families. When I first photographed them almost […]

Anytime I go to a new location, I’m always a little apprehensive of how the photoshoot will go. I’m so used to my “favorite spots” at many of the local parks in the area. They’re like a hot cup of coffee while reading a book snuggled under a blanket on a rainy day. Lately, I’ve […]

I’m…BACK!! I came out of maternity leave for a few sessions this spring and summer. It has been so nice to be behind my camera on these few occasions, including this extended family session. You better believe I’ve whipped out my camera on my fresh new baby girl too and her doting sisters though. Most […]

You may remember a magical tree farm maternity session that I had with the Marriett’s last month. If not, here it is! After meeting this kind and sweet family, I knew that their lifestyle newborn session was going to be a joy to photograph. As with any newborn session, you set a date knowing that […]

I’m finally ready to share my 2018 goals…even though we are a few weeks past New Year’s Day! I’m hear to tell you that you don’t need to have your entire year planned out on January 1. Though I was that girl for the past 15 years. I used to stress and mull over what […]
