The Northup Family

In October, I met up with the Northup family for their fall mini-session at South Park in Wellman.  The leaves were a beautiful golden yellow and made for the perfect setting for this beautiful family.

Sam & Kayla {Wedding: Part 1}

In the middle of October, I headed to Pella to capture the wedding of Sam and Kayla.  We began our day at their church, The Second Christian Reformed Church.  The church was beautiful and the decorations were gorgeous.  Before Kayla donned her wedding gown, we took a moment to capture some beautiful detail shots of it.

The Cory-Fisher Family

This fall, the Cory-Fisher family wanted to show off their Hawkeye pride during their family session.  The session took place at their home and was so much fun.  After a few "posed" portraits, the Cory-Fisher family had a ton of fun playing football in the yard as I caught action shots of their game.

My Baby Girl is 6!

 It is hard to believe it, but my Gabby girl is 6!  How is that even possible?  I always enjoy seeing how much my client's children have grown between sessions.  With my own children, it's often harder to see these changes since I have the pleasure of watching them grow every day.

The Smith Family

On a chilly October evening, I met up with the Smith family at Willow Creek Park in Iowa City.  Despite the cold, the kids all did great.  I love the portraits of them on the rust toned bridge.

Dane & Tristan {Engaged}

In early October, I met up with Dane and Tristan for their engagement session.  They met playing softball, so we began our session at the field where they first met.  I love when couples have locations that are special to them.

The Klitgaard Family

I once again had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Klitgaard family.  It was a chilly October morning, but the kids were all fabulous.  It was so fun to see how much they have grown since I last had the pleasure of photographing them.

Brandon & Emily {Wedding: Part 2}

After the formal portraits finished, Brandon and Emily's ceremony began.  It was held in the River Room at the Grand Harbor Hotel in Dubuque.  It was simply stunning.  The large glass walls overlooked the river and the whole room was filled with the afternoon light.

Brandon & Emily {Wedding: Part 1}

 At the end of September, I had the pleasure of traveling to Dubuque for the wedding of Brandon and Emily.  It was a beautiful, warm fall day.  My assistant, Greg, and I arrived shortly after lunch to begin photographing Emily as she got ready for her big day.

The Mitchell Family

In early October, I headed to Iowa City for the Mitchell family's mini session.  It has been a few years since the Mitchell family has been in front of my camera.  It was a pleasure to photograph them again!
