2014 looked a little different with the arrival of our sweet Isaiah in July. We slowed things down a bit when it came to work, but there was no shortage of love documented. Here’s a little look back through our year of weddings, engagements and lifestyle sessions. Thankful for them all. Looking forward to seeing what 2015 holds!

    Beautiful work – consistent rich colors :)ReplyCancel

When my friend Jamie Delaine emailed me last Fall about this idea of hers and her husband Randy’s, there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that I wanted to be involved. And there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that it would be a success. Knowing their drive and their heart to serve, and more specifically in this case, their heart for the children of Haiti, it couldn’t be anything but. I’m so excited to see this come together and to join many other photographers to give back.


Whether you’re a photographer or a prospective client, I hope you’ll get involved! Here’s the rundown:

The School Sessions is a one-day event across the globe on Sunday, April 12, 2015 to raise $200,000 to build a school in Haiti. Portrait photographers can sign up online to photograph one (or more!) portrait sessions and donate 100% of fees to The School Sessions.

$200,000 will buy land and build a ten-classroom school for 220 students. The previous building was destroyed by the 2010 earthquake and these children (ages 3 to 16) are in need of a earthquake and hurricane-proof school to learn and grow.

By empowering hundreds of photographers across the world with a simple way to give back, together we will meet our goal. Join us in Making Haiti’s Future Bright.


Email me at or fill out a contact form via my blog to book a session with me on Sunday, April 12, 2015. Engagement photos, family, newborn, maternity…100% of the fee will go to The School Sessions! Let’s make this happen, together. Can’t wait to hear from you.



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.
