Jace {Cake Smash}

This little guy had a lot of fun munching on his cake.  He wasn't too sure about it at first, but once he realized it was a tasty treat, he had a blast.

Al + Jill {Engaged}

In the beginning of March, I met with Al and Jill at the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines.  Really, does it get more fun than a zoo engagement session?  I had such a great time working with them both at this great location.  I'm excited to go back and photograph their wedding at the zoo this June!

Ryan + MItzi {Engaged}

It was a windy day at Lake MacBride when I met with Ryan and Mitzi for their engagement session.  Early March is not known for its calm weather.  Thankfully, the rain in the forecast stayed away and the temperature was a fair bit above freezing.  The clouds lent themselves to some gorgeous even lighting for Ryan and Mitzi's session.

Jace {One Year Old}

It was so much fun having Jace in the studio for his one year portraits!  I photographed his parents' wedding a few years ago and was thrilled when they contacted me to capture portraits of their adorable little guy.

Joanna + Jordan {Wedding: Part 2}

For their grand entrance, not only were the wedding party announce, but so were Joanna's parents and Jordan's parents.  It was so much fun to see the joy on their faces as they made their way into the reception hall.

Vintage, Love, Rentals, & annessi

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of meeting up again with a good friend of mine, Cynthia Betts of Vintage, Love, Rentals, & annessi while I was in the Des Moines area for an engagement session.  Not only was it wonderful to get a chance to chat and catch up, this was the first time I'd been able to check out their store.  Love it!!  So glad I had my camera with me!

Imaging Images

This winter has been busy, between keeping up with sessions, weddings and editing; as well as keeping up with things in my personal life after the loss of my father.  So here we are, several months later, and I'm just finally finding time to share some of the portraits I was able to capture of the beautiful models at Imaging USA this year.

Jordan + Joanna {Wedding: Part 1)

On February 13th, I headed to the gorgeous Hotel Blackhawk in Davenport for the wedding of Jordan and Joanna.  I had not had the pleasure of photographing and event in the hotel before and I can honestly say I hope I get to go back there soon!  GORGEOUS!  Beyond the location, Jordan and Joanna's wedding was stunning from start to finish.

Michael + Dannielle {Engaged}

Towards the end of February, I met up with Michael and Dannielle in the Ped Mall area of Iowa City.  They were back in town for a brief visit to family in the midst of a big move, so it was the perfect opportunity to capture their engagement portraits.
