Ainsley {Newborn}

Seriously, how sweet is Ainsley?!  At the time of her session, she was only four days old and just an itty bitty peanut.  She did wonderfully during her session and was full of adorable little smiles.  I'm smitten!

Corey + Teressa {Wedding: Part 3}

After sunset, we headed back into the reception and continued with the festivities of the evening.  Corey and Teressa cut their cake, then guests dove into the amazing delicious Molly's cupcakes.  I have to say the chocolate was phenomenal (did I ever mention how much I love cupcakes?!).

The DeFord Family

I met with the DeFord family at Wilson's Orchard during golden hour one beautiful October evening.  The weather was gorgeous.  Such a perfect evening for portraits!  I love their outfit choices.  The gray, black, and denim with a few pops of red were perfect for the orchard.

Lee + Julie {Wedding: Part 2}

After the grand exit from the church, we headed to the Old Capitol, just a block over from the Newman Catholic Student Center.  It was great to have some more time to photograph Julie and Lee.  Their bridal party waited on the bus, while we got some great portraits around the Old Capitol and the other gorgeous buildings close by.

Happy Birthday, G!

Happy birthday to my sweet G!  She is seven...wait, I must have typed that wrong.  She cannot possibly be seven!  Crazy how time flies.  Seven years ago, as a client was leaving the studio at the end of their session my water broke.  Just a few short hours later, little Miss G joined our family and it's never been the same since.  Love this girl!!  She is my sneaky, stubborn little girl who is so smart, loving and beautiful.  I cannot imagine my life without her.  So again, little Miss G, wishing you the happiest of birthdays!  I love you!!

I had such a wonderful time with the Miller family at Wilson's Orchard in October.  The weather was perfect and the location was gorgeous for their family portraits.  Their two little guys are so adorable!

Corey + Teressa {Wedding: Part 2}

After we finished with the bridal party portraits on the golf course, we headed back to the clubhouse to photograph the family portraits.  Unfortunately, the sunlight was harsh which limited our locations for portraits.  Thankfully on the back of the clubhouse there was a great spot for portraits.

The Martin Family

In late October, I met with the Martin family for their fall mini-session at Lake MacBride.  It was a beautiful fall day, and the sun was shining brilliantly through the golden leaves.  Lovely!

Lee + Julie {Wedding: Part 1}

At the beginning of October, I headed to the Newman Catholic Student Center, to capture Julie and Lee's wedding day.  We began the day with their first look.  You could see the joy radiating from Julie as she walked up to tap Lee on the shoulder.

Corey + Teressa {Wedding: Part 1}

On a bright autumn day in the middle of October, I headed to Middle Amana to the Amana Colonies Golf Course for the wedding of Corey and Teressa.  There was a slight chill in the air, but the sun was bright and warm.  The trees were starting to show their golden colors, truly a beautiful sight and a perfect day for a wedding.

Alexis + Emma {Mother-Daughter}

As a mother myself, I adore mother-child sessions.  Not only are the portraits something moms treasure, they are something the children will treasure in years to come.  Truly a precious keepsake.  So I was delighted when Alexis contacted me to schedule a mother-daughter session with her sweet little girl, Emma.
