Unplugging Your Wedding

 I love my phone.  I really do.  I love being able to stay connected even when I'm out and about, but there are times it needs to be put away.  We have a rule in our house, no technology at the table or during family time.  It is so important to be present in the moment, not only for ourselves to build memories but to show our respect and love for those around us.

Recently, little Miss Adria came in for her Birthday Club session.  Along with her, she brought her doll, Meredith.  So adorable!

Thomas + Lisa {Wedding: Part 2}

 After the ceremony, we headed outside for a few rather chilly, but fun portraits before heading to the reception venue, the Iowa City Sheraton.  I love the alley behind the church.  The long block window was a gorgeous backdrop for portraits.  A big kudos to the bridesmaids for braving the cold and ice for these portraits!

My "Why"

Recently, I was tasked with digging deep and really finding my "why."  I didn't have to spend hours looking deep within to find the hidden meaning of why photography and portraits are so dear to my heart and light a passion in my soul.

This is my "why."

Jaxson {Newborn}

On New Year's Eve, I got to spend part of my day with this sweet little guy.  Jaxson was so tiny and adorable.  He wasn't super interested in sleeping during his session, but I think we still got some great shots.

Thomas + Lisa {Wedding: Part 1}

On January 2, we headed to St. Mary's in Iowa City to capture the gorgeous wedding day of Thomas and Lisa.  When we arrived, the air was crisp and chilly outside the church.  Inside, the sanctuary was busy as final touches were being finished.

Brian + Chelsea {Engaged}

On a chilly afternoon at the end of December, I met with Brian and Chelsea for their engagement session.  It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to capture a winter engagement session.  I love how the portraits turned out!

Mason + Bridgette {Wedding: Part 2}

 We loved Mason and Bridgette's late November wedding at the Marriott in Coralville.  It was a beautiful event and the couple was surrounded by so much love, not only for each other but the love their family and guests had for the beautiful couple was wonderful.
