Hi.

Welcome to my blog. Here is where you will find my adventures in wedding & lifestyle photography. Rooted in Des Moines Iowa, I simply blessed to work with some of the most amazing midwest couples who share the same values as I in creating beautiful, romantic and joyful wedding images.

Nothing makes my heart happier than being emotionally involved in my work. That I can invest my soul into something so personal like a photographing a new little soul in this world.  Jen & Teo welcomed me to their lives by asking me to be their wedding photographer, which in itself is such a huge honor, but then they shared the news of their pregnancy and again asked me to documented the love they had growing.   I then met up with them at the hospital and got my first little glimpse of baby GIRL Penelope in the first 48 hours her first breath.  Talk about amazing.  I walked into the hospital room and immediately burst into tears when I got to hold her (because I am super emotional and I love babies) There she was, so little and perfect and created in the image of love. If you have ever had a baby, you know the emotions run high for both mom and dad, there are so many unknowns and yet you have this perfect gift that God chose for you to take care of. Talk about emotions running wild!  Fast forward 8 days later I showed up to photograph one of the sweetest little newborns and one of my favorite couples.  Jen & Teo I hope you enjoy this time, it goes SO fast. Its a whirl wind of milestones, late night feedings, and little things that come and go so fast that by the time they turn three it will be crazy that you could fit her head in the palm of your hand. 

Love you both and congrats again!
