The holiday season is upon us! As the weather gets colder and the days get darker, I find myself cooped up inside. Maybe it’s just me, but I think Iowa has the craziest weather ever. One day we’re under blizzard-condition snow, and the next its raining!! All the rain washed the thick snow away. What had […]

As we near the holiday season, I’m getting in the mood to decorate! Especially with the dusting of snow we got last week. With a few leaves still clinging to the trees, we had the perfect mix of seasons for Edgar and Jacy’s Kent Park engagement session. A little fall, a little winter. And, as […]

As a photographer, sometimes I get to travel! This week’s engagement session took me to Cuivre River State Park in Troy, Missouri. That’s a direction I’ve never been to shoot before! Fall drives are one of my favorite peaceful things. I love taking in the pretty scenery while listening to music. I had the help […]

October is truly the month of engagements! I love getting to know my brides and grooms better as we tromp through the woods looking for the perfect light. And that’s exactly what we did for Matt and Melissa’s fall engagement session at Lake MacBride State Park! Trust me, it was worth it because we found […]

Happy Wednesday, Friend! Do you have a favorite thing about fall? For me, I love fall drives through Iowa’s countryside. They offer the prettiest views and peaceful time to myself (needed as a parent!). Time away from busyness and high-traffic interstates. Let’s just say, they’re one of the most refreshing things I know! The drive […]

Time sure flies when you’re having fun! Now that my wedding season is slowing down (it’s getting cold out! brr), I’ve been catching up on all the household chores I’ve been putting off for the last few months. Like finish painting our kitchen that I started in August. Oops! In between baby snuggles and housework, […]

This month has been filled to the brim with weddings. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE what I do. I mean, I wouldn’t be a wedding photographer if I didn’t love it, right?! But I’ll tell you this; an engagement session is exactly the pick-me-up I needed right in the middle of this busy season! […]

I don’t think I say it enough, but I truly have the best brides and grooms! This session is definitely one of my favorite engagement sessions to date! The Devonian Fossil Gorge just outside of Iowa City was the perfect location to capture Eric and Taryn’s beautiful engagement session. The scenery was beautiful and these […]
