lacey + lucas

This session ended up being a bit of a battle all around….my toddler and dogs all decided that they wanted to accompany Lacey and Lucas in their photos. Seriously….I had to just strategically crop Oliver out of the pics. :) Then of course there were the typical 40mph spring winds. I figured that wasn’t enough, so being both of these lovely people had a background in rodeo, I’d throw a horse in the mix for good measure. They handled it all like champs though, and I’m so happy with the results!

blackmore wedding

This lovely ranch wedding was the last one I was able to shoot this spring before the strict restrictions went into place. Luckily for me, it was a beautiful one to end on. I’ll just be over here daydreaming on this one until the weddings start up again….

kolbe + helen senior

These two widely photogenic seniors decided to do a combined session, and it ended up being so much fun. We started downtown and the weather was warm and sunny….by the time we hit the woods it was cloudy and cold…and then the lookout was freeeeeeezing and ridiculously windy. These two couldn’t have been better sports with it all though, and the resulting images made it totally worth it.

s + s engagement

Desert sessions have officially stolen my heart. The light and setting for this engagement session was perfect! It also doesn’t hurt that these two were ridiculously photogenic..

k + d maternity

Fall is my favorite for multiple reasons, but one of the biggies is the beautiful buttery light it provides. The setting was nothing short of dreamy for this sweet maternity session. And like normal, their fur baby Maggie stole the show. I’ve never seen a Lab hesitant to walk in tall grass, but once she warmed up to the idea, there was no stopping her. 😂 Sticks had to be thrown really far to keep her out of the shot.

emma + dallas

We had a typical early fall day in the southwest for these two…..insanely windy! Had it not been that they were driving up from the valley to do the engagement session, we would have definitely rescheduled. Luckily these two were insanely photogenic, so they would have looked good in any conditions. We did a combination of hiding from the wind, and then just embracing….and honestly I’m a little partial to the dramatic flare it adds.

paige

I feel as though I’ve been buried in weddings since spring, so it’s fun to mix it up a bit and do a senior session. This sweet girl’s mom is a good friend of mine so I’ve known her since she was little; and I’d occasionally pick her up from elementary school, go get her hopped up on chai tea and give her back to her mom. :) She is such a beauty inside and out, making this session so stinkin’ fun to do.

wuerfel wedding

This wedding was everything an early summer wedding should be…..light, airy, and absolutely stunning. Not to mention the bride and groom are some of my absolute favorites. It made for such a fun wedding to photograph!

sears wedding

The spring/early summer wedding season has kept me insanely busy this year, and it’s reflected in my lack of posting. Now that I have a little breathing time, hopefully I can catch up a bit…..starting with this gem of a simple backyard wedding. Simple and sweet….just the way I like it.
