My Girls

My girls often find themselves in front of my camera. While they're not enthusiastic about having their picture taken, at least they haven't starting running for dear life yet. :) Last week, I headed out the Wellman park to do a mini session of my girls for my husband who is currently serving in Afghanistan. They had a lot of fun playing with each other during the session. Thankfully I did manage to get one shot of them both looking at the camera, at the same time no less. That is no small feat. Being slightly partial to my beautiful girls, I just had to share their photos.

Bridal Fair {bella sala}

Today I had a great time meeting with all the brides and grooms who came out to the Weddings in Iowa Preferred Vendor Show at bella sala. It was a wonderful show and I loved getting the chance to talk with so many couples about their weddings. There were a lot of 2012 brides out and about!

Here's our booth, showcasing our fine art albums and books.

Cynthia Betts showed off some of her beautiful tablescapes. Gorgeous!!!

Jon & Amy

Yesterday, I had a great session with Jon and Amy. The weather was lovely, finally feeling like spring. We started our session at the Iowa River Power Restaurant bridge and then headed over to the area around university art museum. We had a great time walking and chatting. Engagement session are such a wonderful way for me to get to know couples before their wedding day.

Zach & Brooke {Wedding}

Last Saturday, I kicked off wedding season 2011 with an amazing group of people. Brooke and Zach are so kind and fun, and they were surrounded by great friends and family. It was a beautiful day in all aspects: a glowing couple, beautiful weather, and surrounded by love from friends and family. Such a wonderful thing to be part of. I love my job!

Danny, Elsie, & Betsy

Yesterday, I headed to the Ped Mall to meet up with the adorable trio that is Danny, Elsie, and Betsy. Unfortunately, mother nature wasn't completely working in our favor and it was rather windy. These three did excellently despite the chill and wind. I think these shots are so cute! We found a couple really great loading doors to take pictures in. I think my favorites are the individual ones of them in front of the painted blue wall. It worked perfectly with their outfits and made Betsy's eyes just pop!

Lilly's Cake Smash

In honor of Lilly's first birthday, we had a fun cake smash session. She did so well smashing her cake. She was more interested in playing with the frosting than anything else though. It was pretty cute! I think cake smash sessions are so much fun. What a great way to honor your child's first birthday!

Maryann & Lilly

These two little sweeties once again graced my studio this past Sunday. They both did so well! We finally got some pictures of the two of them together, which hadn't worked out so well in previous sessions. They are so adorable and were full of such great smiles! I can't wait until they're back in the studio again.


Seriously, how adorable is this little girl?! Macie was a lot of fun to have in the studio. Though, as with most little ones once they reach crawling age, she was on the move a lot. I love all her little outfits, especially her floral dress. So adorable!
