Ryan & Kelsey {Wedding}

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of assisting Megan Klauer Photography in capturing this beautiful event.  The day began at Hotel Vetro in Iowa City, where both Kelsey and Ryan were getting ready.  I love all the beautiful natural light in Hotel Vetro.  It is a gorgeous location.

Nate & Emily {Wedding}

Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of assisting Shuva Rahim of Accent Images with the wedding of Nate and Emily.  We began the day at Nate and Emily's Iowa City home where they shared their first look.  The expressions on their faces as they saw each other for the first time were simply perfect.  You could see the excitement, joy, and love they felt.

The Nash Family

Meet the Nash family.  They were amazing enough to brave the heat a few weeks ago for their family session in Iowa City.  For the session, we headed to the Iowa City Dog Park.  Sounds strange, I know.  But I love the Iowa River Power Restaurant bridge and the grassy field near the dog park.  They make great locations for portraits.

Kenny & Erin {Wedding: Part 2}

After the wedding and the grand exit from the church, Kenny and Erin headed to the park again for some portraits of just the two of them.  I was in heaven!  Not only did I get to go back the beautiful park, but I got a lot of time to work with just the two of them.

Kenny & Erin {Wedding: Part 1}

The second weekend of August, I headed to Mason City for the wedding of Kenny and Erin.  The day began with their first look on the steps just outside the church.  You can see the joy on their faces as they saw each other for the first time.  Simply beautiful!

Brett {Newborn}

Meet sweet, little seven day old Brett.  This adorable little guy came into the studio recently for his newborn portrait session.  Despite being a little fussy at first, Brett settled right into his session and did so well.  The benefit of getting babies in for their newborn session within the first ten days after birth is not only are they still teeny tiny and adorable, also they are still very sleepy and a little more flexible.
