Fall Family Sessions

Fall Family Sessions are in full swing! They have been quite the challenge though with all this rain, wind and cold weather we’ve had! Thankfully I’ve had amazing clients who have been flexible, patient and willing to fight this lovely Iowa weather of ours! My October schedule is full, however I do have openings in November and December yet if you’re interested in getting on my calendar! Details on my Family Sessions are listed HERE.

Maternity Sessions

I had the opportunity to photograph Mackenzie with her beautiful horse Murphy just one week away from her due date! We had amazing weather and lighting! This was such a fun session and I was so happy to capture these beautiful photos for Mackenzie to cherish! Doesn’t she look amazing!

Spring Family Session

I had so much fun with the S family during their Spring Family Session! The weather was absolutely perfect and the blooms were in full swing and just beautiful! The lighting and savory sent under these trees was magical! I think we captured some really special shots! Both kiddos were smiley and giggly, which made for some really great candids, which are always my favorites! I just love the interaction between mom and dad and the kiddos! So so sweet!
