The Rose Gardens at Heather Farms, is one of my favorite places to shoot, especially in the spring and summer. The roses are everyone you look, not to mention a plethora of flowers, trees, plants and yes even little animals. The first time I ever shot a wedding as the primary photographer was The Rose […]

Her heart pounded as she slowly walked up the stairs to see her future husband for the first time on this, their wedding day. As she touched his shoulder, her smile couldn’t be brighter, and he was itching to see his beautiful blushing bride. As he turned, he broke out in tears, at the site […]

From giggling to the confused “what’s going on?” look, sweet Natalya’s personality shown through, even at the age of only 3 months. So sweet, so innocent, so curious…these are just a few of the characteristics I love of babies. As a Newborn and Family Photographer, I often only get to see these sweet little people, […]

Her beautiful gown hung down her back and softly flowed behind her as she walked to a rustic fence in beautiful Round Valley. She nervously laughed as I set her up for her first pose and stylized shoot. Even in the dead of winter, this beauty brought spring in full force. From her golden hair and porcelain skin […]

He has finally fallen asleep, the moment his mom and I have been patiently waiting for throughout the night. The defiant eye he’d been half opening, finally closed. Peaceful and still, sweet and innocent. These are the moments every newborn photographer waits for, and Everett here didn’t disappoint…not that anyone could be disappointed in a […]
