the Widowski Family | Palo Duro Canyon

I am sure i could fill a room with people that love these four people. The Widowskis are the kind of people you want on your side always. They are the comforters, the supporters, the encouragers and most importantly… they are the kind of people that just let you know they are present and active in your life.

I had the joy of photographing their (apparently) first family photo!

okay, emma. someone quick. get me a big brother! Adam, Krisit, Gunnar and Emma. thank you for being my favorite kind of people and for sharing your time with me. I think the world of all of you as individuals and as a family! Thank you for being you to all of us.

O’Connor and Lusk Families

I met this beautiful family last month. They were finally all in town and together during the holidays and it was the perfect time to update their family portrait.  Working with a family with this many people can sometimes feel intimidating. But they were all so fun and easy to photograph. We spent most of the time just playing and laughing.  In fact, i’m tempted to share their bloopers collection!

Livi Blaire | Newborn

My friends had a tiny human! And y’all… she is the squishiest, good smelliest, cuddliest, adorablest little thing ever. I mean… i’m sitting in the living room holding her and Ashley says to me “i can hear your ovaries pounding from over here”


but can you blame me them?!

chad and ashley. as always, it is so much fun to be around you. and the dogs. to see how naturally Livi just fits into your home, family, arms, and hearts is such a beautiful thing for me to see. there was  never any doubt that you would be the best kind of parents. but i feel like you are doing it all with so much ease and fun. i cannot wait to see this little thing grow over the years! and i thank you for welcoming me into your home and story.

be infinitely blessed

Dawson | Class of 2017

This young man. He first made an impression on me a few years ago. He has a quiet confidence about him. But he also has this very pure and genuine heart. Dawson has a smile that can change your whole mood.

Now Dawson is graduating. And just hearing about his plans and dreams for his future make me the most proud.

i know you usually wear a smile. but i love this photo of you! Dawson. truly. you make me so proud. and just knowing you makes me feel like i am a better person. you inspire me. and i boast about you to everyone that mentions your name. i am so so sooooo proud to have known you for the last few years and i am even more excited to see you succeed in your future. every hug. every accidental run in at bagel place. the photos. and the times i’ve seen you share your talent and your heart with people around you. you amaze me. and i am VERY proud of you.

Ty and Stephanie | At Home

Ty and Stephanie opened their home to me on a cold and snowy morning. We sat in the kitchen and talked. and talked. and talked. and then finally we remembered we were supposed to be taking photos.

and maybe that says something about ty and stephanie. maybe there’s a metaphor in there somewhere about feeling at home with the people i photograph.

or maybe it was the mimosas.

Stephanie is soooo good at decorating her home. i kinda need her to come over and help a sister out.

Ty and Stephanie… it was SO fun to spend a morning with you. Thank you for the laughter. the realness. and your willingness to just hang out and let me photograph it. it has been so much fun getting to know you better. there’s nobody else i would like to third wheel with.

be infinitely blessed
