Mitch + Connor | Engagement Session in Kansas City, KS

Talk about a power couple. Connor and Mitch both work in law enforcement and are passionate about what they do. They have big personalities and even bigger hearts, and their love for each other is deep and strong. I loved the earth tone colors they chose for their outdoor engagement session in Shawnee Mission Park. The tall wild grass and beautiful trees mixed together with the wind on that day doing amazing things to Connor’s hair all made for the perfect kind of engagement shoot. Cannot wait to photograph their wedding in Kansas City this fall.

Macie +Austin | Engagement Session in Old Town Wichita KS

Macie and I connected over Instagram a few days after she and Austin were engaged. Their story is so adorable and as soon as we sat down for coffee in person the three of us were laughing like old friends. I had so much fun documenting their love and their adorable chemistry during the engagement session in Wichita, KS. It’s so crystal-clear these two were made for each other. Can’t wait for their wedding this fall!

Seattle Washington In Home Session | Leblanc Family

This in home session north of Seattle Washington was so sweet, authentic, heartfelt, and perfect.

I love in-home family sessions so much. Some mamas are hesitant to do them because they feel like their house isn’t pretty enough or perfect enough. I love how Laurel invited us into her space and chose to have her family captured where they feel most at home. Her home is beautiful but it wasn’t about that for her. It was about the sweet, real moments with her husband & baby. Beauty isn’t about perfection. It’s about honesty & love. Any home where love is found is beautiful.

The Factory At Franklin Family Photoshoot | Toth Family

The Factory was such a fun, unique photo location and getting to shoot there with this sweet family was a blast. The whole Toth family is so much fun and the kids were such genuine, joyful balls of energy. When I was on the phone with AnnJanette, planning this shoot, she gave me so many wonderful suggestions of things to do and see during my stay in the Nashville/Franklin area. Her heart of giving and sharing is a blessing and something I want to grow to be more like. Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot together.

Andi + Cody | Engagement Session in the Heart of Nashville, TN

Andi + Cody | Engagement Session in the Heart of Nashville, TN

Can I be real for a second? These two are seriously the cutest. They’re both creative filmmakers. Andi used to be a cast member at Disney world. They love their dogs and all things adventure. The weather was below freezing that day but you wouldn’t know it by the way these two look at each other. What a privilege getting to photograph them in front of the beautiful Nashville skyline, in the city they call home. Afterward, we got to warm up at the most vibes coffee shop in Nashville, Barista Parlor.
