• Family L. – Spring

    Yesterday my husband and I went to see our good friends, Austin and Julie L. (who, I might add, are marking their 10th wedding anniversary later this month!) and their daughters Paige and Quinn.

    It was a gorgeous day! While the guys were getting the grill ready for a cookout, the gals were prepping for a spring […]

  • Evelynn and Eleanor B. – Sisters

    Shortly after Easter, our cousins Heather and Tim B. asked me to come back to their house to take pictures of their growing girls, Evelynn and Eleanor. I gladly accepted. When I took the photos on April 12, El was just a few days away from turning 3 months old!

    Their matching pink “big sis” and “little sister” […]

  • Lucas B. – 5 months

    My nephew Lucas Andrew B. turned five months old today!

    It’s difficult to take pictures of this growing boy because I’d rather be holding him than my camera – but this time I made an exception.

    Getting his onesie on before the photo shoot, like a pro.

    His mom (my sister Katie) has been taking pictures of him with […]

  • Ice Caves adventure

    Driving: 16 hours, 900 miles

    Sustenance: beef jerky, belVitas and Girl Scout thin mint cookies

    Entertainment: good conversation and silly singing with friends

    Goal: cross the ice caves off bucket list

    It’s strange to think that just two weeks ago there was snow on the ground and ice covered the majority of Lake Superior, creating the spectacular Apostle Islands Ice […]

  • Sloan and Turner P. – Sisters

    Looking through my baby book, some of my favorite photos are of my siblings holding me. Their bright eyes and wide grins say it all.

    I’m not sure what that sort of pride feels like since I’m the youngest (or “accident” as my sister would tease, only to be corrected by our mom as the “love child”). Still, […]

  • Glimpse of the Ice Caves

    Sometimes I struggle to find the words. This is one of those times, which is why I am so grateful to have photography as another creative outlet.

    In an upcoming blog post you will read (and see) more about my recent trip to the ice caves in northern Wisconsin (once I am able to better articulate […]

  • Lost and Found concert

    Some of my good friends, Chuck and Ruth Werth, asked if I would come to the Lost and Found concert at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Lebanon on Feb. 22 to take photos. Side note: Chuck used to be the pastor there and he also confirmed me. Music, photos and friends? How could I say no?

    I remember […]

  • Quinn L. – Welcome home

    Some of our very good friends, Austin and Julie L. (who are practically like family), had their second daughter on Jan. 22, 2015. Her name is Quinn Joy, and she’s a sweetie pie.

    By the time I write this post she’s already 3 weeks old, but these photos were taken at just 10 days old.

    Her big sister, […]

  • Eleanor B. – First week home

    Eleanor B. is two weeks old now! Last Saturday (Jan. 24, 2015) I took some photos of her at home with mom Heather, dad Tim and big sister Evelynn.

    Heather always picks out the cutest outfits for the kiddos to wear — including the same tutu and hairband Evelynn wore for her first-week pictures.

     

    […]

  • Welcome Eleanor B.

    Tim and Heather B. welcomed their second daughter, Eleanor Grace, into the world on Jan. 16, 2015. All smiles was proud big sister, Evelynn Sue.

    I’ve had the honor of photographing this family since the day Evelynn was born, July 25, 2012. She has grown up so fast!

    When I walked into the hospital room to meet Eleanor for […]
