HAPPY 2023! I hope everyone had a safe, restful holiday. I’m not sure I’d call mine “restful,” but it was quite fun! Our dear friends from Michigan drove out to spend some time with us, and we had a blast. Max loved having extra kiddos in the house, and we enjoyed showing the Adams Crew […]
You’ve all heard of ‘Golden Hour Light,’ but have you ever heard of ‘OMG how-is-this-even-possible All Day Golden Light’?! Y’all know I don’t do big weddings anymore- it’s six hours or less for me these days. But let me tell you, just because you have a smaller or shorter wedding day doesn’t mean it is […]
I don’t get to do many senior photo sessions, but I have to say- I love it and I want to do more. Kaya is an incredible young lady. The first thing that stood out to me is how confident she is. She knows what she wants, she knows who she is, and she knows […]

It was mentally, physically, and financially difficult at every turn. While many are still uncomfortable talking about infertility, it impacts 1 […]
