  • 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 [...]
  • Laura & Perry

  • Two weeks ago today we said goodbye to 2015.  The new year always gives us reason to pause and think about where we're at in life.  I can tell you with great certainty that when 2015 started, I had no idea how it would end.  I didn't know I would start a photography business, and I would have never guessed that we'd be [...]

But last night this adorable li [...]

  • Before Matt was commissioned as a chaplain in the Navy I had a lot of misconceptions about what military life was really like. Some of my misconceptions were positive, but many were not. It is no secret that when he first brought up the idea of becoming a chaplain I was entirely resistant. My main argument was how detr [...]
  • What's to come

  • I recently had the privilege of photographing this beautiful family. There is just something about this session that is sticking with me… Maybe it was the sweet way they laughed together; how they teased and encouraged each other. Maybe it was the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park - this amazing place that is practic [...]
