There’s nothing about this maternity session that I am not completely obsessed with. Their style, their passion, the beautiful location, the stunning sunset we got blessed with; it was absolute perfection. I love how truly and madly in love these two are and how naturally it comes across throughout their gallery. I can’t even imagine how […]

Heather and Kevin {Are Expecting!} A maternity session on a ranch in the rolling hills

April 25, 2017


I felt like revisiting summer during this weird ‘real spring’ we are having this year. I’m truly not accustomed to a few days of sun and then a few days of rain; normally here once the sun creeps out it stays out till November or December. So let’s go back to a beautiful wedding last […]

You couldn’t ask for a grander stage for a wedding than under the towering canopy of redwoods at Calaveras Big Trees.  The majesty and grandeur of the venue was paled only in comparison to the truly deep connection between Travis and his classically gorgeous bride, Hannah. These two planned their day to compliment the natural […]

I have seriously always wanted to shoot up in the snow and wasn’t about to pass up on a workshop happening up in Tahoe earlier this year in January.  What I couldn’t have imagined was that we would be amidst the most intense snow storm Tahoe has seen in quite some time.  I am definitely […]

Well everyone it was a long winter. I do love our winters, I frequently thank God for rain and appreciate every moment of it that I can. Buy guys, I’m a gardener, a barefoot lawn runner, a lover of popsicles and swings and fireworks – a literal writer of light. This winter was amazing and […]

When you own Something Sweet Bakery and 3 of your friends and employees have kids turning One at the same time – you have to plan something fun to celebrate! Desta contacted me to set up a fun little cupcake themed shoot and cake smash for the beautiful kids who she loves like her own. […]

Stylized shoot for Something Sweet Bakery

January 11, 2017


I have so much blogging to catch up on from the last year! I decided I’m going to take snippets of some of my favorite sessions, workshops, and second shooting jobs and make pretty little posts of my favorite shots. Welcome to part 1 of that series! This is specifically from a lovely little workshop […]

Styled Musings part 1

Some young people make me feel a little guilty about how foolhardy I was as a young adult. No really. And I’m here to wager that you might be a little blown away by Shelby too once you get a paragraph in. Shelby is so bright that she is going to be majoring in Aviation […]

While in Georgia last month for an absolutely stunning wedding I wanted to fill as much of my time with shooting as possible! This amazing couple is getting married next year and I am so happy I got to take their engagement portraits while I was in town.  We waded through a proverbial sea of […]

If you don’t know Anthony and Mersedes then let me give you what insight I have gleaned from this amazing day in their lives.  I was fortunate enough to witness each of them separately and together during the day and was lucky enough to even have time to shoot their portraits in relative privacy.  These […]
