"Because Life is Beautiful"

Courtney - Maternity

This momma was positively glowing during her session. We had such gorgeous lighting that evening and it was so much fun to photograph and edit this session. I had a hard time picking which images to share so I probably shared a few more than usual but oh well, she looks awesome and I can't wait to photograph her little bundle of joy! 


Louann Gender Reveal/Maternity

This was my first gender reveal session and it was so much fun. Mom and dad didn't know what they were having so I was the first to know after the doctor. She presented me with an envelope with the ultrasound photo from the doctor revealing the gender. We had to schedule very soon after because the suspense was driving her (and grandma) crazy lol
I think it was well worth it!

We then later scheduled her maternity session (sessions actually since we did a few in the snow and a few after it turned warmer with her other kiddos)

 Her little one was just born yesterday so stay tuned for her pictures next week!!

Photographing your special moments and watching adorable little ones like this grow up is why I love my job. Contact me at and check out my website at to book your shoot today!

S & J ~ Expecting ~ July 2013

I knew on this one we really wanted some outdoor shots but I saw the clouds in the sky before they arrived and was a bit worried. As soon as they got out of the truck, it started to sprinkle and as soon as we walked inside the studio, it started to pour! I was hiding my disappointment and hoping it would stop.
We went ahead and got the indoor shots out of the way and I was so glad that as soon as we finished I looked out and it had cleared up! (Jumping up and down inside!)
A muggy July day wasn't the idea conditions for an 8 month pregnant lady but she was a trooper!
Was so sweet watching them together, seeing the way he looked at her and touched her belly.
They are definitely going to be some proud parents (tomorrow actually, she is getting induced and I can't wait to do her newborn session next week!)

As I was starting to wrap up and do the last of the pictures by the fence, it started so sprinkle again but they were still so awesome and went right along with a few pictures in the rain!
(Not to mention the rain actually felt really good in the heat!)
After all the mugginess and rain, we ended up with a really rocking maternity session!

This one is actually one of my favorites from this year!

I can't take credit for this idea, mom requested it from Pinterest and I thought it was too cute!

Such an incredibly sweet couple whom I look forward to photographing their family for years to come!
