Before he says “I do”.

A tale of middle school love and a happy ending. This couple met in middle school. He told me ‘I used to sneak over to her house at night and throw rocks at her window. She’d jump out of her window and we’d run off. It had been snowing, we left footprints in the snow, …

What to do if your left standing alone at your own wedding

Ceremony, hugs and kisses are over. The bride is left alone. We glanced at each other and she burst into tears. I ran to hug her, but first I had to snap the picture. … then I hugged her. (I love these moments.)

Cue the music…

Literally, one of the coolest first dances I’ve shot … (I think the -6 degree weather really added to the intimacy of this outdoor wedding).  While their good friend strummed his guitar this couple had their first dance outside on the Pearl St. mall  under the stars, the streetlights and the January night sky.

Winter family portraits

I love my repeat clients.  I even like the ones that don’t repeat, but it’s always great to see how much everyone has changed.  

Jillian

I love shooting high school seniors that I’ve known since they were in kindergarten.  I actually hadn’t seen Jillian since 5th grade and I’m always so shocked to see that they have turned in to young adults.  I guess I forget how old I am and how much time goes by.  Seems like every year …

Kipela family portraits.

I absolutely love working with kids and families.  The best part about it is when the kids are just being themselves without having to pose.   No matter what I do they always end up doing what they want and I think that is perfect.

Horse barn photo shoot.

This was an amazing photo shoot. One of the women bid on my gift certificate at an auction for Birds of Prey and asked if I would come out to her barn and shoot all the women with their horses. I love animals but have never really been around horses.  What struck me was the …

Another beautiful high school senior and a few family shots to boot. And sweet little Olivia who snuck in for a few.

Julia, Jeremy and baby cooper.

The first time I met Julia I knew I would love her.  She’s beautiful, kind and tough.  I am sure, despite her size, that she could kick my ass.  I like that in a woman.  Her husband Jeremy is funny as heck and has a heart of gold.  I’m sure they balance each other very …

Dance 2B free

I recently had the opportunity to photograph the women who run Dance 2B free a non profit sharing dance in women’s prisons. I was immediately moved by the inner beauty each one of them possessed.  It is really remarkable to be able to see into someone.  Each woman had their own special way about them …
