  • Over the river and through the woods | Family session

  • Five kids. Chickens. Tantrums. Ice cream bribes. Kittens. Maze. Willow trees. River. That pretty sums up my trip to rural St. Joe on Saturday to hang out with this awesome family. It's fun to do pictures of so many kids in a family at once as you really get to see each of their personalit[...]

  • To a mother, from her sons

  • I did a shoot of these brothers the week before Christmas, and finally got to use the new UI Business building as a location.

  • Ashley + Scott are getting married!

  • I've known Scott probably since he was about 4 years old. We were in the same 4-H club, his sister Tara (hi Tara!) is a really good friend of mine, and his grandma was my kindergarten teacher. Oh man, as I'm typing those things, I'm realizing that list goes on and on because we also showed cattle [...]

  • Acquaintances to clients to friends

  • I think I first "met" Kristin & Tyler at a UI football tailgate at least a year ago... maybe longer. Then I really met them (and in fact sat at their table) at a wedding I photographed last October, which, coincidentally was about the same time I started blogging. They contacted me shortly after t[...]

They handed out TONS of backpacks full of school supplies, hundreds of hot dog & mac+cheese dinners, haircuts, oil changes, food pantry items and lots of other stuff. For the second year in a row, I was one of the photographers[...]
