Our Team of Photographers

I talked about the day I could move away from our small town growing up, you know those high school years where getting away from home sounds like the best thing? I wish I could go back and tell that girl who was frustrated to just enjoy the here & now, because one day you […]

Our House Project / Buying, Renovating & Learning to Enjoy the Process

I sat at a little pizza shop a few months ago, just days after selling the store & admitted to a friend that I didn’t know what I was going to do during my off season. Scared that I was going to be bored. I had never in my life had months without school or […]

Facing my Fears / Personal

I’ve always loved reading…my mom is a teacher and some of my earliest memories are of us snuggled on the couch reading. She definitely passed on her love of reading to me and I could spend hours a day reading a book and be perfectly content! There were a few years in late high school […]

The Heart Behind Christmas in Montrose

I love traveling, Hunter not so much, so I knew it would take some convincing to get her to agree to go out to Phoenix, AZ with me for the ShowIt United Photography Conference. Thankfully she agreed because tickets were bought 😉 Then the morning we were leaving, I texted Hunter  & said “Grand Canyon […]

Arizona / Sister’s Road Trip

I remember in junior high youth group when we made these little boxes to hold the key of our heart, promising to pray for our future husband and many of our parents giving us purity rings to signify the promise. I didn’t think too much of it then, because quite honestly when I was 13 […]

31 Ways to Pray for your Future Husband

Dear little brother,  I cannot believe you are 18 years old, it seems like it was just a few months ago when you were a crazy, naughty little boy. As you get older, I am shocked at how much you have matured. I cannot wait to see the man you will be. Every day it seems […]

Dear Little Brother on your 18th Birthday,

 It started when I was little, I grew up with a Dad who owned his own electrical contracting company, and the entrepreneurial bug bit me early. I would collect soda cans from family to redeem for 5 cents each, I would create handmade cards with friends, and would sell friendship bracelets to raise money for […]

I’ll never forget June 1, 2013 when I photographed my first wedding. It was the hottest day of the year, but I didn’t even feel it. I was on a high and ran around like crazy that day soaking in every single moment. It was that day that I found what I wanted to do […]
