Country + Church

This evening engagement had great weather! That is one thing I always pray for before a shoot + during the week of it is for great weather! Taylor wanted a more rustic look for her shoot + I think the location was perfect for it! Taylor + Mike were so smitten by one another and totally ready to get married! Their dog, Church was awesome! He listened so well and posed like a pro. As I wrap up shoots I get so excited to get home and uploaded the photos and start editing! It truly is such a joy capturing such special times, and to know that these photos will stay in frames forever.

Say Cheese

It rained ALL weekend but the time this shoot was scheduled it had stopped. We went down a trail that led to the Mississippi River and it was so full of woods and everything was so green, it was so beautiful! A little back story about this family, April was my nanny when I was in elementary school! She was the best to my brother and I am memories are still much alive of our time together. She is no expecting baby boy #2 next month and just looks awesome!! Little Gus was so curious of all that was around us! He has the word "cheese" down from ear to ear but never really looked at the camera while doing so HAHA it was made for some good laughs for sure! 

Littles can be a challenge and you just have to pull every trick out of the hat to make them feel comfortable and be their most natural self! Treats + a playground I have learned can put a little one in a happy mood! I am still learning so much and constantly trying to better myself for my next shoot!! I am just so grateful for the families who are reaching out to ask me to capture all their love.

In Blooms

Nature is just so beautiful!!! I have new appreciation for all the rain we get in April to help see things bloom before my eyes! These photos were taken in my dads yard, he has almost everything! A beautiful garden, two different apple trees and grape vines! He is very passionate about growing things + harvesting them to eat at dinner the same night. I hope my green thumb comes to life when I have my own place one day! 

Finn sure had a blast too seeing + smelling all the different plants + flowers. He of course sees a wish vs a weed. I can not help but be in awe of all Gods beauty this Spring.
This Fall I will sure pick apples of those beautiful trees!

Have a blessed weekend,

Friday he's Four

I first met this handsome young man when he was 13 months old. He now will be 4. It truly has been amazing to watch all the milestones he has gone through + to be apart of them all! We truly have the best time together. He loves to now thrift, go to Target weekly, coffee shops, photos, imagination and the coolest lunch spots. We have the best conversations about life while in the car or where ever really. 

Finn, I wish you another wonderful year. You are so smart, so funny, and so lovable. You think of others before yourself and have the best memory. I pray you always use that smile to light your path in this world + keep loving life to the fullest. I love you buddy + Happy Birthday.

Welcome May

 Front porch at the Bluebell 
Swag bag goodies + my first succulent 
Grab tree in my neighborhood, the colors scream Spring!

Spring has Sprung! Spring has quickly turned into my favorite season! The new blooms and everything coming to life after the cold is such a great vision! Many exciting things happening this Summer I am gearing up for and of course many emotions also come with it. I believe with my faith and tribe I will be able to get me through all the unknown. 

I am so anxious to have the sun beating down on my face, going up to the lake, seeing all the beautiful flowers and going to try my best to go barefoot more! 

Happy Weekend,
