  • A Higher Calling

  • If you know me personally, or if you have ever read some of my more personal blogs, then you know that photography isn't my main thing. Don't get me wrong - I absolutely love it! - but it isn't the most important thing in my world. That place is reserved for something (or someone) much higher. His name is Jesus. [...]
  • The Princess Sessions

  • The Princess Sessions are an idea that began brewing in my mind a few months ago.  I am so excited that the day is finally here for me to officially announce this project and begin scheduling sessions!! While photography is a passion of mine, it is not my only focus. Even more important to me is finding ways of spreadi [...]
  • A Genuine Response

  • I love social media, but I think it has created a beast in our culture that is slowly (but oh so surely) eroding our confidence, contentment and communication as unique and beautiful individuals.  How is it managing to do this?  Well, it has taught us that the best way to respond to an idea or opinion is not to simply [...]
  • When You're Overwhelmed

  • This week in the wholehearted newsletter I shared a vlog post that includes a fun little photography tip at the end!!  With that in mind, I decided to share it with you all here as well, in case you're looking for a way to capture even more fantastic images of the people you love most. I hope that as I share my meth [...]
  • The Doughty Family

  • This sweet couple...  the majestic mountains and rolling tide...  the vibrant and constantly changing skies... There is simply nothing not to love about this maternity session. When I sit down at the computer to edit session images I am always flooded with memories of sweet moments together with my clients.  What [...]
  • The Mckeown Family

  • When we found out we were moving to Hawaii I was excited for all of the obvious reasons.  I immediately began daydreaming about beach days and lush forest hikes.  Now that we've been here for a few months, I can gladly report that the island has not failed my imagination, but has far exceeded it! One surprising real [...]
  • The Snethen Family

  • Joy.   Every family I meet and every person I photograph holds a special place in my heart.  It is an honor to capture such sweet moments in time, and it is a privilege I do not take for granted. This precious couple blew me away with the sincerity and depth of their joy.  Let's be real people: photoshoots aren't a [...]
  • That Kind of Photographer

  • We have been in Hawaii for over two months now.  In some ways it feels like we've been here forever, and in others it seems like it was just yesterday that we were oohhhing and ahhhing the entire ride from the airport to the hotel...  As we have settled into a new life here, I have also found myself settling into some [...]
  • Spread the Love

  • Hey friends, so glad you stopped by!  Today I plopped down on my Hawaiian loaner couch with a wet head and heart filled with hope.  This Valentine's day I have a special challenge for you.  It's a challenge that is meant to encourage you, inspire you, and maybe get you a little out of your comfort zone.  But it's not a [...]
  • Nothing and Everything to do with Photography

  • When I started the vlog a few months ago, I wasn't really brave enough to make it what I most wanted it to be.  Today, that all changes.  Take a couple minutes, and hear how my mission in life and who I am has absolutely nothing and totally everything to do with my photography, all at the same time... And I do apolo [...]
  • Priorities and Productivity

  • I have a confession to make: I'm not always very productive. Now, before you start imagining me laying on the couch all day watching soap operas and eating bonbons, let me clarify:  I'm always busy.  I'm just not always productive. There are many different things that I need to accomplish through out the week, an [...]
