Newborn- Baby Petra

I was so excited to photograph sweet baby Petra with her family just a few days after she was born.

And looking through these pictures, I think it perfectly depicts WHY I love lifetsyle shoots so much. I love that it is real life. There is not much posing and forced smiling. It is just me capturing someone's life from behind the camera. It's so great to photograph people, especially kids, in their own element. No pressure on anyone. Just memories, as you are living them, captured for you to cherish forever. I love it! This is why photography is such a beautiful thing. :)

I absolutely adore this growing family and I can't wait to see baby Petra, as well as her two big sisters, growing up, and who knows, maybe I will get to this family expand even more. ;)

Family- Donny + Amanda

I ran a contest a little while back and this little family was the winner. And let me tell you, there was TONS of people that wanted them to win. This couple has been through a lot and I am so happy for them that they finally have their precious little family they always wanted. 

Sweet Audrey was only about a week old for this session , and she definitely made me work to get good photos. She was NOT in the mood for pictures. But that is real life. And that is why I love what I do. You never know how the session is going to go, but you learn to work with all scenarios. ;) And even when she was screaming her head off, she was just too precious.

Although our session was cut extremely short, I'm so happy I was able to get a few good photos for this new little family of three. I wish them nothing but happiness and laughs in all the years to come. And many, many special memories with that beautiful little girl.

Wedding- Mr. + Mrs. Cluff

Sometimes you meet people and you just kind of hit it off immediately. That's exactly how I feel about Alyssa. She emailed me and right away we had so much fun planning photos for her wedding day. We even thought it was going to rain, but she wasn't worried at all. She just said we would have some cool photos. ;) I could tell she was so excited to be marrying the man of her dreams, nothing else really mattered.

When the wedding day came, I was so lucky to capture this sweet couple's elopement ceremony. The love between the two of them was absolutely undeniable. They were so giddy and couldn't keep their hands off each other. It was truly so wonderful to see their excitement for their new life together. They were so much fun to work with and such naturals in front of the camera.

Getting to witness moments like this is why I love my job.

Congrats you two! It was an honor and I wish you nothing but the absolute BEST! :)

Maternity Session- Beth

I absolutely adore this Mama-to-be! Is she stunning or what? She makes being 39 weeks pregnant look like a piece of cake (going through it twice, I must say it is NOT!) :) She is such a joy to be around and I'm so excited for baby girl, Petra (how beautiful is that name), to make her debut. It could be any day now. I know her Mommy & Daddy & two big sisters are eagerly awaiting her arrival. :)

Baby's First Snow

I can't believe my  baby boy is already 5 months old. And something pretty exciting happened recently......he got to see his first snow! He absolutely LOVED playing in it and waving his arms around like he was making a snow angel. So naturally, I just couldn't miss the opportunity to capture this precious experience. It's moments like these that I will cherish forever. <3

Family Session- Trautwein Family

I can't even express how thankful I am to have met this family. Catie has become one of my best friends and I can't imagine making this transition into a new life in a new town without her. There are certain people who come into your life and you just know they will be in your life forever. That's how I feel about this little family. So, of course, I was more than happy to take their photos. ;) Mr. Shane gave me a run for my money, but I managed to get some good ones. He is seriously one of my favorite little boys on the planet. :)
