Butterfly Garden

Hello again,

I recently took some time away from posting here in order to meet the demands that graduating from college require. Completing my Bachelor’s Degree was a huge accomplishment for me and I know that myself and my family will certainly benefit from my education. Since then, I have been adjusting to days without a schedule and viewing them as days brimming with possibility.ย Oneย of the first things I knew I wanted to return to as soon as possible was shooting with my camera. And my son was more than happy to jump on the chance for an adventure with Mommy. ๐Ÿ™‚

After some time off it felt so good to get back to doing what I love. And I’m so excited for all of the adventures that this summer will bring!

Gender Reveal

Some of mine and my husband’s close friends recently found out they were going to have a baby, and since then there has been an awful lot of debate over whether they were expecting a boy or girl. A few days ago, Carissa and Jacob finally found out what they are having ๐Ÿ™‚

Cooper & Family

If you saw my last photography session with this beautiful family several months ago, then you might recall that Trisitn was pregnant with little Cooper. But he finally arrived!

Little Sister Love

This is my beautiful younger sister, Caroline.

It is so surreal to see her grow up so quickly and to think that she will soon be graduating from high school. As the youngest of my sisters I have often caught myself trying to look after her, but she has matured into this beautiful young lady who is fully independent and ready to take on the world.

Love you always, Caro. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Romantic Airplane Engagement

This shoot in particular was among the most exciting that I have ever done and it was made even better because the couple are close friends with my husband and myself. Wesley is a pilot and he and his fiancรฉ Georgie wanted to incorporate an airplane theme to their engagement photos.

Next, it was off to the park where they told me they’d spent time together while in high school.

I was recently contacted by a Facebook friend of mine who was interested in me taking her maternity photos, to which I instantly said yes! And honestly how could I go wrong with this gorgeous family?

Goodbye, America

A week ago my younger sister graduated from college and in less than a month is heading off to spend a year abroad in Poland! I could not be more proud of her and all that she has accomplished and I can’t wait to hear all about her exciting adventures!

We also picked the coldest day on record to take these photos,ย to prepare her for the Polish winter ahead of course.

And while I will enormously miss my best friend while she’s away, I couldn’t be happier for her. On a daily basis she will get experience the compelling culture and individuals thatย Poland is comprised of!

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetProcessed with VSCO with a6 presetBest of luck, Zoe! Bon voyage ๐Ÿ™‚
