It is my absolute pleasure to take pictures of the people that I love, especially when the photoshoot is meaningful. My absolutely wonderful sister, Becki, went through a lot in the last few years and these picture were taken as a way to put a period at the end of that sentence.

Cakes by Allie
The twins had been going through a huge unicorn phase and their birthday was right around the corner. I could not have been more excited when Allie agreed to make them twin unicorn cakes.
Hudson’s First Birthday
On a beautiful warm day in May, we gathered to celebrate Hudson’s birthday. This Lion King themed birthday party was so fun. The weather was great outside so I thought I would grab my camera to see if I could capture some special moments.

Our Garden | Summer 2021
For the first time in our adult lives, Adam and I put a bunch of work into our backyard this year. We brought in new sod, replaced the patio furniture, and planted a new garden. This evening we barbecued chicken and potatoes and ate outside while enjoying the beautiful weather. As the sun began to set, I was entranced by the light and couldn’t help myself.
The Magical Sand Dunes
Tiffany and I had been talking about doing this trip for months, if not years. I think I brought up the idea of doing them at the Sand Dunes before she was even pregnant. I had this vision of these incredibly dramatic photos for a while and that vision totally came to life on this shoot. I mean, look at these!
Among the Blossoms
Dori had just picked up this perfect blue dress from Torrid and I think it was the absolute perfect complement to her hair and contrast to the pink flowers. I absolutely adore how these photos turned out, plus Dori and I had so much fun taking the pictures. It was a great way to kick off a season of taking pictures!
The Artist Known as FishWithATopHat
We had so much fun running around this area capturing these. Jess was such a trooper, even willing to climb up a tree and sit there for a while as the sun set so we could capture a perfect sky behind her.
A Forest Fairy Tale
Adam and I had planned this whole epic fairy tale shoot so I would get the opportunity to wear my wedding dress again before it went into long-term storage. I had debated cutting my hair off before the wedding, but my mom and bridesmaids convinced me to keep it long. I am really glad I did because I adore the long braid I ended up wearing for our big day, but this was an excellent opportunity for me to get a glimpse of what I would have looked like on our wedding day with short, blue hair.
Allie is a wonderful co-worker of mine who approached me about taking her senior photos. I was absolutely thrilled to be asked after such a rough senior year. I feel for students of all ages who had to navigate school during this pandemic and I am really proud of Allie for finishing strong. We went to UCCS and caught a beautiful sunset for her photos.
