A Group of Great People

The Southwoods are one of my favorite families. They are some of the genuinely nicest people I’ve ever worked with. It has been a couple of years since I’ve last photographed them and it might be a couple more before the next time but I’m already looking forward to it. Even if it means battling […]

The Wedding of Jaime and Kurt

The Wedding of Jaime and Kurt

Sometimes people just want to get married and party. I believe this was the goal of Jaime and Kurt as many of the traditional activities of a wedding/reception were omitted to make room for a more relaxed, free-flowing experience. Despite being hot (but not to a miserable level) the wedding went off without a hitch […]

Mr. G

With a faux-hawk that wouldn’t lay down, we joked that Greysen looked like Mr. T. Naturally Miranda didn’t know who that was. Thankfully Greysen’s cuteness doesn’t depend on his mom’s pop culture knowledge or he’d be in trouble! He is such a chill baby; I hope it lasts. Happy Birthday Miranda!!! Enjoy!

Jake, Elise, and Eli teamed up to beat the heat for a mixed-focus session. One part family photos. One part 1-year photos. One part maternity photos. That’s right (as if you couldn’t tell from the photos) this family of three is about to add another in August. Come August Elise will have a house full […]

A huge congratulations to Tiffany and Angel as they tied the knot and begin their new lives together! The love these two have for each other is impenetrable and I know they will always be there for one another.

The Magic of Smiles

To paraphrase Forrest Gump, “Photographing children is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get”. Luckily for all of us present for this family shoot the outcome was very pleasant! It just takes time for little ones to warm up and some slight “trickery” to get them to look and […]

Michael has now joined his sister as an alumnus of Lewistown High School but their post-high school paths are very different. Ericka became a Division I athlete and Michael is headed to the Army. Before he ships off for Basic Training they joined up for a pre-military photo shoot for mom. I am very privileged […]

Jordyn, Ryan, and the Winds of Love

Finding the perfect location for a photo session can be very hard. You want to make sure there is enough around to use as a serviceable background. You want to make sure there is a way to avoid the harsh sunlight (if there is any). You want to make sure it isn’t a location that […]

Averi and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Playgrounds. They get you every time. What was supposed to be a session full of family photos with a side of Harrison and Averi turned south at the sight of that playground. What are you gonna do? However, not all was lost; we just incorporated the playground into some photos. We’ll get them next time! […]
