Adam + Amy

Years ago I met Amy and Adam while I worked at Pier 1, and I am so thankful we have stayed in touch. They are amazing people and I still have a fun green chair in my living room that I got from them years ago!  I was honored to be a part of their story by capturing some Anniversary portraits at the end of last year.  We hit up the amazing Incredibly Delicious and ventured around downtown Springfield. And since both are serious bikers, it was fun to incorporate their bikes at the very end. I am so excited to finally share this session with you all, since it was one of my favorites of 2014.  Enjoy!

A happy little toddler and a beautiful day equal a perfect session! It was a joy to experience the delight that Jake and Hailey had in their daughter Arabella. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of it for a day, guys!

Country Life: Blackwell Family

I love adventuring around the Blackwell’s home and their amazing country life.  Chickens, cats, horses, ducks, fish, frogs… it’s like a petting zoo in their backyard (and front yard)!  As most of my clients know, I thrive in the interactive sessions where kids are playing and parents are laughing at said kids.  I loved exploring their land with their kiddos. Thanks again Cory, Mieke, Eliana and Isaac for the great day!



I’m so excited to finally share a very fun session I did of my friend Rae! As many people in the art world can probably attest to, if you never create for yourself alone, then your creativity begins to run dry. There has to be a good balance of “work” and “inspiration”. I have found, that it is one job I can not just show up to and “get by”. It is both mentally and physically taxing and once in awhile I need to be refueled! I had this idea in my head for awhile and knew Rachel would fit the natural, wildflower, “light-catching” vision that I wanted to capture! And she did it marvelously! (and I told her many times she could totally be a model). I hope everyone else can see the fun, Jesus-loving, free-spirited and deep-thinking friend that I do! Thanks Rae for shining your light!
