A Neutral Baby Boy Newborn Session When Bodhi’s mom Katelin, a past bride of mine, reached out wanting to know if I would be interested in doing an in-home newborn session for them, I quite literally squealed. Sounds dramatic, but there’s few things I find more magical than watching my couples grow their families and […]

A Wildflower Themed Lakeside Wedding It’s not often that I listen to speeches from the parents or bridal party and think “Man I wish these speeches would last a little longer.” But this was actually the case with Cynthia and Kyle. I had the honor of not only being able to listen to the wedding […]

The ups, downs, and in-between moments that make up the beautiful everyday memories I never understood the phrase, “it’s the hardest job you’ll ever love” in regards to being a parent, specifically a mother. The title of “Mom” is the most beautiful title I’ve ever had, but it’s not giggles and amazing core memories all […]

A sunny downtown Plattsburgh engagement session Maddie and Alfred are the epitome of cute. It didn’t take an entire engagement session to see how in love these two are, try like the first 2 minutes. Love like these two have made their session flow so easily and before I knew it, almost two hours had […]

I remember meeting up with Emily and Jake at Emily’s family home and immediately feeling like I was meeting up with some old friends. I felt like we had so much in common, like the fact that they both are in the photo/video world! They actually met at an advertising agency as TV producers which […]

A late November Point au Roche family session Why would I title this an engagement / family session you may ask? Well because Katie and Wyatt are technically already married! They eloped in 2019 after finding out about their miracle baby seen here – Levi! With Wyatt being in the Coast Guard and a baby […]

I was so proud of myself for pulling off this engagement session! I had to travel about two hours to the location and once I got there, my pregnant hormones were screaming at me and the nausea was REAL. I honestly had no idea how I was going to do it aside from just sucking […]

I’ll be honest, I get a little nervous about how many images I’ll be able to deliver for an engagement session when the couple tells me they only want to wear one outfit. Different outfits give the final gallery more variety, that’s just facts…unless you’re Charlotte and Evan apparently! They ended up with over 150 […]

This engagement session was actually split in two parts no thanks to Mother Nature! I showed up on our originally planned day with the hopes that the weatherman was right and the rain would slow to a halt. Spoiler alert, that didn’t happen and it actually just started raining harder…so fun. NOT! I felt terrible, […]

This was a slightly different engagement session for me because I got to do a little bit of traveling for it! My rule of thumb is no more than 60 miles outside of my zip code for engagement sessions, but I had to make an exception for this session because I had been dying to […]
