I want to share with you one of my “whys” today. Why do I do photography and what is keeping me pushing forward in the uphill climb of creating and promoting a business? Like many photographers, when business gets slow, we might start second guessing ourselves, our work and or our business practices. In full vulnerability, that is so me today. I take photos … Read More A personal “why”
One of the things I want to look back on when my kids are grown is pictures of all of us together. That means I need to get in the picture frame sometimes too. I get it. It’s not always easy and being a photographer it’s especially hard to get in front of the camera so I HAVE to make a conscious effort to … Read More Get in the frame!
I realize it’s been a while since my last post but I have a very good reason. In August, we brought a new little lady home to our family. The tiny but mighty miss Novalee!

All of them have been injured to the point they would not survive in the wild. Their injuries range from broken wings that healed incorrectly from events like being hit by vehicles, some have been shot by humans, … Read More WSU Raptor Club Tour
I am not exactly a huge nature buff, however, I do love animals and when I get spectacular images of them it makes me giddy. Here are a few pics I have taken of animals (and some rain covered grass) over the last year that I especially love. The dog is Butler, my aunt’s American Border Collie. I love how happy he looks … Read More Animals

One of my dearest friends from college had a little boy about a year ago. I did a newborn shoot for them and apparently forgot to upload it here. So here it is! It is amazing to see how much I have grown in newborn photography since my first one. It was also my first little boy newborn session.
When I was asked to do David and Amy’s wedding, I was actually really excited. I was so pleased with how the first wedding I did turned out that I couldn’t wait to try another. I learned a lot the first time around and how to manipulate images in Lightroom to fix errors and create art. This time I did a little bit … Read More David & Amy 1/28/2017
