The Gilliland Family Portrait

We braved the rain, going to the park inbetween the storms, and were able to take these super cute family portraits of our good friends the Gilliland family.
No, Asher (the dog) is not wet from the rain, he decided to jump in the lake to chase some ducks. Luckily we got most of our portraits done before all this excitement. And I got to great this great portrait of Asher in all of his wetness...

Happy Halloween!

Denise and Marc at the Blue Lantern Inn

I am very excited to have recently partnered with Jim Kennedy Photographers for wedding photography. Through the studio, I was able to shoot this wonderful and super fun family for the intimate wedding of Marc and Denise at the Blue Lantern Inn. It was a beautiful day, a beautiful ceremony, and everyone was so elated. Their faces say it all...


I just wanted to post this portrait I took of my grandma and Maddy's hands. It has a sweet poem attached to it that pretty much sums up what my grandma means to my family and I.

Welcome to My New Blog!

I am very excited to finally get started on my photography blog. I have so many wonderful people and families I photograph, I can't wait to share their portraits and memories with everyone. But I had to start off my first entry with my favorite subject ever! My cute little baby Madeline. We went to the pumpkin patch for her 6 month portraits. She is growing up so fast! I love her to death. Of course I think she is the cutest, sweetest baby in the world... Enjoy!
