The blog’s been a little quiet recently, I’ve been taking my annual ‘little break from shooting’, I’ve been really sick, and Winter is just a slower time for weddings here in the Midwest. I’m breaking the silence with one of my shoots I did on my recent trip to California! My husband and I have […]

When Hannah was a little girl she spent hours playing and hanging out in this beautiful grove of Magnolia trees. She always thought it would be awesome to get married in the Spring under the pink trees. It was a little unrealistic to actually have the wedding in the grove but doing bridals were totally […]

Hope you all are having a beautiful Autumn! It’s been going back and forth around here, but it looks like the cooler weather is here to stay now. There are a few things I contribute to gaining more success in my photography business.  And one of those things is styled shoots. I truly believe they […]

I love doing bridal portraits, it’s one of my very favorite types of shoots to do! I’ve come to the realization that bridal portraits aren’t really ‘a thing to do’ in the Midwest. A lot of my brides haven’t even heard of them or know what they are. I thought I’d take this opportunity to […]

The contributors to this styled shoot were: Location: The Herrington Inn and Spa Flowers: Lemondrop Designery Gowns: The Dress by Nicole Hair: Tangles and our model was the lovely Melanie.

Just a little preview of the shoot from this weekend. So much pretty to capture!

It’s an awesome thing to collaborate with a talented florist, fantastic seamstress, and a beautiful girl. And the light, it was perfect. Being a photographer in the Midwest has it’s challenges, like you never know if the weather will cooperate, or if you’ll get that dreamy sunset you were hoping for. Well I was hoping and […]

I guess I kinda broke my maternity leave to shoot this session, but it was worth it. My favorite light, a beautiful girl, a beautiful custom gown, a lake, a dock, and especially designed florals. Can’t get much better! Here’s a sneak peek for ya.  If you didn’t see the baby news, all the details […]

Oh goodness, I am so excited to share these images with you all! Stephanie just got married to the love of her life so I can post her bridals! This girl is one of the sweetest people you’ll meet, and it was so awesome shooting with her. One thing I really love about Stephanie is […]
