My favorite family!!! Probably easiest shoot I've done this year. I pretty much just stood there with my camera why they just played and loved and made magic. They are so dang cute. Oh and guess what? I had a crush on Mandy for a year or so. Tia talked her into booking me for pictures a couple years ago and now she's one of my dearest friends. Guys some dreams really do come true. Hahah! I love how these turned out! Yay!

I miss having co-workers. :) Before I did photography full time I had lots of jobs! I was a waitress, I worked at 4-5 treatment centers/group homes, and I had a desk job too! (can you believe that) I loved seeing the same people everyday and hearing and learning so much about their lives. It was so easy to feel so close and connected! It wasn't always unicorns and rainbows because sometimes people are mean and lazy hahaha so working for myself has it's perks! Sometimes I mean and lazy but it's on me to change it hahah! But I do feel so lucky to have so many photographers I've met that are some of my dearest and most beautiful friends. Amber is one of them. She has the most beautiful light and vibe! AND HOLY CRAP SHE'S GORGEOUS! I 100% have a crush on her. She has always treated me so kind and giving me such love. I'm always grateful when people look past my spaziness and flaws and sometimes crazy emotions and still love me. It's the greatest gift. :) I love you Amber! Yesterday was so fun!
check out her work here! She's so freakin talented!

2 year olds are the absolute best. They are free and authentic. And they just all love sugar. haha! We just let her be her and run around and play and eat a crap load of swedish fish and I captured how much she adores her parents and how much they adore her. Family sessions. Man.. they just fill my heart so full. This family is pure sunshine.
Constantly inspired by this amazing family. They are such a beautiful part of our community! They own a freakin awesome Photography business and Station Studio in River Heights.. The most inspiring thing they do is parent these amazing children with such love and light. Raising such kind humans to help make this world a better place! I love the Cascio family!
Summer of love, light, and beautiful moments. A few of my favorite images!
It just flowed so well. I pretty much just followed them around as they did their thing and loved on their girl. These images fill my soul and I love the free + wild feel they have. What a beautiful family!
I can't wait to watch these two beautiful people parent that baby boy. Parenthood is wonderful.

This family. They interact so beautifully together. This sweet girl showed up not sure about me.. She was quiet and beautiful and studied me for the first bit. And when she realized I wasn't that bad she opened up and was giving us all sorts of smiles and energy. I just love that. Letting kids just be kids until they are ready to open up in front of you. They have a little boy on the way and he is one lucky kid! I loved this session!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My work is one of the most beautiful parts of my life and I'm forever grateful for every moment I get to do this! Thanks for all of you that support my work and to all of those who hire me and trust me to photograph your moments.
My sister. The beautiful and talented ball of happy and energy that I love so much. Check out her amazing blog here. I love her and her family. These were taken in Wyoming the day after Thanksgiving. It was FREEZING. But looks so warm! I love that! Can you believe how stylish they are?! So dang cute!

I can't get enough of this sweet little Milo and her cheeks! She's so hilarious and I love her. And her parents are sunshine and so easy, breezy to be around. Cutest little fam! And they own Roolee (roolee.com)! My favorite clothing store ever. Check them out!
I'm lucky enough to call these people family. The patience and love Clay and Jodie give their children is so admirable. I'm more of a "get your butt over here!! stop hitting! NOOO!" the intense type parent.. While I have big goals of being more gentle in my mothering ways hahah! I look to Clay and Jodie for guidance and inspiration. Every time we do a session together it just works. Flows perfect with Hallie's free spirit, and Owen always has us dying laughing. And with new Norie added to the mix she just sits there calm and perfect like the angel that she is. Family is everything.
A beautiful fall wedding in the mountains of Heber. Every moment of the day was full of so much love. Just the way it should be.
