So, I have a confession, I love overcast, rainy wedding days. I know, no couple wants to deal with rain on their big day, but I think it always makes for some of the most gorgeous wedding photos. Kara and Sean’s wedding was no exception! This sweet couple met when they were both undergrads at […]

Our Fall wedding season is quickly approaching and what better way to start it off than with an absolutely gorgeous late August wedding at The Millbottom! I’ve been looking forward to Kelsey and Andrew’s wedding for almost a year now and it did not disappoint! These two are one of my absolute favorite couples I’ve […]

There’s something about early Summer weddings.  Everything feels so fresh and bright. This was certainly the case for Leah and Carter’s big day this past weekend at The Daisy Farm here in Jefferson City.  Leah and Carter have a love story that spans several states, and they are high school sweethearts, which is how all […]

This weekend I got to a very special engagement session right here in Jefferson City. My friends, my sister Beka is getting married! I’m super happy for her and Christina as they get ready to start this chapter of their lives together. These two have had a busy year- not only are they planning their […]

It’s well known that our family loves cats. We have 4 cat babies and they are absolutely loved members of our family! But really, we aren’t just cat people, we’re animal people. Scott and I have long debated adding a dog to our family but we wanted to make sure we (and our kids) were […]

I cannot believe it has been a year since I shot this couple’s wedding and here they are about to welcome their first baby into the world! Thankfully, unlike their wedding day, we did not have an ice storm to contend with for this maternity session, but Traci and Cole did have to brave the […]

When we first started getting our kids involved in chess, I don’t think we realized what a big part of our lives it would become. Our oldest son, Jack, first asked to learn to play when he was about 8.  Scott taught him the basics, but neither Scott or I play proficiently, so it became […]

Babies might be my  favorite genre of photography, right after weddings.  Is it possible to hold a brand new baby and not feel happy? I don’t think so. Due to my schedule, I don’t often get the opportunity to photograph Fresh 48 sessions, but I was so excited when Hailee and Jon asked me to […]

This week’s Favorite Thing is makeup! To say I’m into makeup would be an understatement. I own more palettes, brushes, and powders than anyone could ever use in a lifetime. I have spent an embarrassing amount of time watching YouTube makeup tutorials. I love makeup! But the one item that I have a really hard […]

This weekend we had more than 12″ of snow fall and we couldn’t have been more excited! It’s been several years since we’ve had this much snow in Jefferson City, so we were super excited for the kids to get out and experience it. For our youngest son, this was the first time he’s ever […]
