Your Newborn Isn’t The Worst Baby We’ve Ever Seen

Your newborn is not the worst baby to ever grace my studio nor will she or he make me never want to photograph an infant again. I promise. Every parent comes in scared that their kid is not going to sleep, will pee or poop all over me, and therefore scar me for life making…

Cole Fall Family Photo Session

I am always thrilled when I photograph a small session, like headshots, and make a connection with a client and they feel comfortable bringing their whole family back for their yearly family session. I photographed Jennifer’s headshots a couple of months ago and was so happy she gave us a call to set up her…

Why I Make A Workout Schedule

A while back I wrote a post about block scheduling. I schedule quite literally every moment of my day. There is very little white space during waking hours. Hell, even my afternoons or *gasps* full days off are color coded purple for Personal Time. Having be given this information it probably won’t come as a…

McKinley | Year One

Where do I begin with this spunky little lady? I have photographed nearly every milestone in her mommy and daddy’s life. Proposal, engagement, wedding, pregnancy announcement, maternity, birth, newborn, seriously; all of them. I couldn’t ask for better friends and clients than Anthony & Caitlin. Not only have I been there for them, but they’ve…

What I Am Reading Right Now

My hobbies typically vary by season. But two that are pretty constant are reading and working out. I enjoy reading suspense, historical fiction, memoirs, and personal development. My favorite type of book to read, fiction or non, are those set during World War II. I firmly believe in feeding my mind with words; it helps…

When To Book Your Fall Family Photo Session

If I had a dollar for every time I have been asked “when will the leaves change?” I wouldn’t have to work any more! Fall is by far the most popular time for family photos; the colors are beautiful, the weather is crisp, and the light is super yummy. So, when is the best time…

Kuhn Family Photo Session | 2018

The Kuhns were like a second family to me growing up. They lived across the street from my family and me for the longest time. When they moved, they only moved around the corner. One of my earliest memories is Michael slamming through our door because there were fresh baked cookies. Growing up he and…

The Biggest Mistake I Have Made In My Photography Business

Business owners aren’t always so quick to tell you the biggest mistakes they’ve made in business. They’ll be happy to tell you all about their HUGE successes and tout the things they’ve done right through the years. I know, because I am guilty of this not so humble brag. It’s not often you get a…
