Each year I like to send a little something to my wonderful brides and grooms to say thank you…for their support, for sharing their love, and for their trust in me as their wedding photographer. It’s no small thing and for that, I’m grateful.

This year, I wanted to share one of my favorite products with them, while at the same time giving them a tangible reminder of their love to last the whole year through. I selected 12 of my favorite photos for each couple and ordered the wood clipboard calendar from Artifact Uprising. I love their image and paper quality and have used them for personal photo projects in the past. When these arrived at my doorstep, they certainly didn’t disappoint. I loved seeing a year’s worth of weddings and engagements in print!


To Levi & Karen, Matt & Larissa, Trent & Jade, Tim & Stacy, Anthony & Lexy, Dave & Stefani, James & Michelle, Jeff & Paula, Isaac & Lori Ann, and to Mike & Sarah…thank you oh so much for allowing me to document your wedding and to document your love! Here’s to a beautiful 2015.

Amid the sleeplessness and teething, amid the to do lists, errands, packing and wrapping, there is much to celebrate and much to be grateful for this Christmas season. I’m ready to shake off the former and embrace the latter, as we begin new traditions as a little family and introduce Zaya to the tried and true traditions we’ve carried through the years. So here’s to finding joy in the chaos, warmth in togetherness, and a New Year bright with potential.

Merry Christmas!


Last week I blogged my cousin’s super sweet baby girl, and today I’m blogging her sister’s second baby boy! Steve and Courtney and Koah welcomed Davis Chance into their hearts and homes in October (the same day as my sister’s wedding! It’s been an eventful year for my family). I had the fun privilege of photographing this new family of four on a gorgeous Fall day not long ago. Everyone is pretty smitten with the new addition…particularly big brother Koah…
