families

Sun-kissed cheek kisses.  Giggles of kids running through green fields.  Mom holding her baby into her child holding Mom.  Life is filled with candid moments.  these are your stories.  These are your moments.

My photographs capture the posed, unposed, and pure JOY.  It's ok to feel "weird" in front of the camera at first, but I'll walk you through posing, set up moments that feel real when you see them, and DANCE like no one is watching! 

And trust me, it's worth it for the end result.  Images that will leave you speechless and give you the gift of memories documented for future generations to treasure too.

baby love

How many moments have you spent with your children laughing, reading, spoon-licking, shoe-tying, and sink-bathing? Countless. And how many photos do you have commemorating those often mundane, day-to-day tasks that have created the home and childhood your children will look back on as adults? Zero, I’m guessing. I know because I’m a mom. We want to remember these moments forever - chubby faces surrounded by bubbles as water drips from their noses or their tiny little fingers determined to make bunny ears out of shoe laces. But who is there to push the button, freezing these moments in time? Your hands are soapy and wet as you wash their hair. Your hands are holding on to that bike and running alongside as they (and maybe you?) work up the nerve for you to let go. Let me help, mama. Let my hands man the camera while yours guide, teach, comfort, and hold your sweet children. This season won’t last forever - but your memories and my photographs will.

seniors

I know you can still remember the first time you held them in your arms. I know you can still remember the thousand of times you vowed with your life to love them, protect them and to give yourself for them. It’s because of your love that they made it here. Although it might be hard to let go, they are ready because you loved them completely. Your love helped shape their hearts, helped made them who they are - and now it’s time to celebrate who they have become. It’s time to give them a mirror, through an image, to show them the beauty you see in them. This is their time, but it’s also yours.

farm mini 

When I was a little girl I always told my mom I wanted to live in a field of wild prairie grass.  And now, I pretty much live on a piece of heaven.  

I'd love to invite you to visit for farm minis.  I'll photograph your family for up to 30 minutes on the beautiful 160 acres we are blessed to live on near Burrton, Kansas.

These sessions take place near golden hour on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings.  Golden hour varies depending on the season.usually from 5-8 pm.  You can expect to receive up to 50 edited images with print release
