Katie + Jacob. Engagement Session.

What a way to kick off my 2015 wedding season! My little brother, Jacob, has found the woman of his dreams and is getting married in the middle of May! I’m so honored that they let me photograph their engagement session … I realized afterward that maybe it was a little extra awkward for Jacob to have his sister behind the lens but these two are so naturally cute and cuddly that I think the photos came out ok anyway ;) I had the hardest time narrowing down the photos for this blog post because I just love them all! Two special people, some beautiful afternoon light, and the woods that they’ll be married in all made for a pretty great day in my book!

Katie + Jacob, I love you guys so much! I’m so thrilled that you’ve found each other and can’t wait to see what the Lord does through your marriage.

Rachel + Steve. Mini Session

| Posted in: family

I hope you guys aren’t tired of these mini sessions! I just wanted to feature each of these sweet families and couples in their own post… I loved each and every one of them! These two are especially dear to me as Rachel and I have been best friends since middle school. They didn’t know it at the time of the session but they’ll be welcoming a little third party to their family sometime in September (squeal!!). I can’t wait to photograph that maternity session. . .

Solheim Family. Mini Session

| Posted in: family

Get ready for the most adorable curly-haired baby you’ve ever seen. I’ve known Lizzie since we were apartment neighbors when we were preschoolers! Now we are both married mamas and her little Eleanor is seriously one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen. They’re the perfect little family of three! And I was just dying over this gorgeous afternoon light we had to work with. Awesome stuff right here, guys…

Tanya + Gary. Mini Session.

| Posted in: weddings

Finally! I’ve been trying to make this post for the last few days and my computer has been a little under the weather. It’s definitely time for an upgrade!

Anyway, I’m really excited to share Tanya + Gary’s session with you. I didn’t really know these two before they joined our small group last year but I quickly came to love them. They are such a strong, loving, and fun couple!

Cohan Family. Mini Session.

| Posted in: family

The Cohan family snagged the very first time slot during our mini-session event, which was awesome because they had a packed day and were still able to get photos done! It was not awesome because it was the coldest part of the day! Poor baby Kate was shivering the whole time but she and the rest of the family put on brave faces and hardly even looked cold! (Except for Kate in that last photo, haha!)
