Can somebody please just stop this cuteness. Violet is such a stinker. She loved giving me quick little smiles and then talked and talked and TALKED! Looks like she definitely found her voice. Loved meeting this little girly! It's especially neat since I got to photograph her mommy and daddys wedding a couple years back. Happy 6 months Violet!Read More
Hey all! I am sharing some of my new 'in-home' lifestyle photos taken by my best friend Jenny Marie Photography. She has a love for in-home shoots and I couldn't pass up the opportunity of having her take these! She even was sweet enough to let me edit some of them myself for my blog!
Aria & Vada are what make my home complete. Aria is my 2 and a half year old daughter who is known for her BIG personality! She is hilarious and tender hearted. Vada is a feisty little kitty that I got Aria as a Christmas gift. You know, the gift that keeps on giving. J These two are still learning how to ‘play’ together and not going to lie, some days are more exhausting than others, but I LOVE it so much!Read More
Being an Aunt to a cutie like this is more than fun. Aria loves it just as much as I do! She loves to stand by me and make Jordan smile with toys and silly noises to make Jordan smile. :)
Happy 6 Months cutie!Read More
Well, Myla is TWO years old... and she braved -6ish degree weather for these photos. She even SMILED!! Dedication. Anyone else love Myla's almond eyes and style?!
I always enjoy photographing Myla and seeing her personality. She is going to do so many great things. :) Enjoy!Read More
Never ever tame boys crazy fuzzy hair. It rocks. Especially when they're as cute as this little one! Oh, and always and forever make them wear suspenders. :)Read More
When baby boys have blue eyes and long lashes it just melts my heart. And makes me a bit jealous... James is an adorable 6 month old who braved the cold and didn't even shed a tear. Enjoys these squishy cheeks!Read More
Tyler and Allison were married at St. Joseph's Church in Granville, with a reception following at the Le Mars Community Center.
The sun as shining and the blanket of snow of the ground made for a gorgeous day, but it was probably the coldest wedding I've ever photographed! It was -7 with wind chills WAY below that!! But Tyler and Allison didn't let that deter them from having a fabulous day and I was so impressed with their great attitudes, even when they were standing in the snow without coats!
I had the prRead More
My littlest nephew is 4 months old and is in.... 12 month clothes!! Jordan is off the charts in weight and length! Rolls on rolls on rollllssssss.
He has become such a chatter box and is one of the happiest babies I have yet to know. Anyone else love the stage when babies can coo and giggle? It is my absolute favorite.Read More
Trevor and Jessica were married at First Reformed Church in Sioux Center on Friday, November 17, 2017. The reception followed at the Alton Golf Course.
With a miserably cold day on Thursday and a chance of snow on Saturday, we were so grateful for the beautiful weather we had on Friday! Trevor and Jessica had a rustic theme that was well rounded with the incorporation of shot gun shells in the flower bouquets and the bridesmaids' cowboy boots! It's so fun to see how each couple takes what they love and adds it to their wedding day.Read More
Alexis is such a near and dear friend of mine. Seeing her become a wife, mommy, and watching her start her own business has been such a joy to see! I am so proud of her and all that she does!
A few years ago we got together to dream and discuss our businesses and decided right then to team up! Alexis is my make-up artist and beautician for any of my brides!Read More
Seeing sisterly love is by far one of my favorite things to photograph. Especially when they are THIS sweet!!
All three girls braved the cold with me, and did a WONDERFUL job. The littlest girly is a blessing to their sisters and family in so many ways. Her red hair reminds them of their grandma and how much they miss her dearly.
Loved meeting all these ladies and I still wish I had all their clothes... Enjoy!Read More
Miss Fashionista is ONE!! You can bet that her birthday outfit was one to remember.
Maddox had fun taking pictures with a PIG! Was she even scared? No. Was I? Yes. I never been that close to a real life pig before, and they are really cute animals in their own way. :)
Love spending time with this girl. Her personality is as big as her bows!Read More
Meet Jasmine, a fashionista who is going to PARIS next year.. for school.. high school. Anyone else thinking "where was this program when I was in high school??" I know I am. Best wishes to you on all of your adventures Jasmine!! Enjoy!Read More
Oh my GOODNESS it's session like this that make my heart so happy. Even though we were getting bit up by those nasty little black bugs.. are they gone yet?? The kiddos did great. It may have been a not so fun experience for the little babe, but who could tell??
I love Fall and families like this. Enjoy!Read More
Meet the Kooima Family! A busy family of 4, with two of the most adorable boys! Especially when the youngest has red hair and sticks out his tongue when he smiles. :)
Megan used to be one of my Drill Team Coaches assistant back in High School! It's always fun catching up with those from our past and seeing the beautiful families they have.
Loved spending the evening being silly with these guys. Enjoy!Read More
Another wedding I am more than thrilled about for next Spring. Brian & Shannon have been together for about 5 years, and their engagement story is awesome!! He surprised her with a new outfit, spa day and so much more before he got down on one knee!Read More
Meet Johannah! A sweet, talented bubbly senior with GORGEOUS eyes. Her hair color though. :)
Learning all about Johannah's hobbies and seeing what she loves is always one of the reasons why I love photographing seniors. I got to meet her goat, kitties, dogs and see her use her bow & arrow!! Don't even get me started on how she lit up when she got to show me her shot puts and discs.Read More
Ryan & Cady have PRAYED for this baby so hard, that it's crazy to think he/she is almost here! October is baby month, and we know both sides of the family are more than excited.
I have known these both for awhile because they are videographers and I absolutely LOVE working with them, even though they are cutting back on that a little bit. For obvious reasons. :)Read More
Seth and Shelby were wed at Terrace View Event Center in Sioux Center, Iowa. They had a gorgeous greenery theme with pops of burgandy.
Despite the constant threat of rain, it ended up being a gorgeous day!! I even needed to pull out my 'mini portable' fan. Well, I didn't NEED to, but I just couldn't pass up any opportunity!
Cloud cover is a photographer's dream, and you can tell why from the pictures!Read More
