Do you remember this beautiful wedding from last year – Jessica and Bill ?
Well they just welcomed two of the cutest little peanuts!!! Yes you read that right twins!!!
These guys were magic! from beginning to end their session was a dream!!! The light, the location, the company. It was perfection!!!!
I met Nettie and Latrece about 5 years ago capturing headshots for Latrece.
Nettie just graduated with a degree is History from U of D and asked if I could capture this special time for them! I was so happy to say yes. I am incredibly proud of her and was so honored that she asked me to capture such a wonderful time for her!!
How cute are these?
Seriously, if you have a little one go order your own custom diaper cover and many many other custom outfit options from my friend Lindsay of Sew Much Cooler.

Well Are You? Are you ready to be the “It Girl” in your line of work? Well here is your chance to help you achieve that goal!!!
Sign Up Now Before the Event Sells Out.
1) Do have a budget in mind when you contact a photographer. Be it for a family session, wedding, or editorial work.
Don’t ask to get something for free or for trade because it will be “Good Exposure”. If I had a nickel…
If you want beautiful top notch Hi Res (300+DPI) images be ready to pay for them. Otherwise I suggest looking at local art colleges and asking students to work with you, but don’t assume they will do it for free either.
2) Do print your images. When you want to remember the good times while your visiting family, what’s one of the first things to come out? The family photo album. Printed images are true tangible evidence that you were here! Digital file storage doesn’t last forever and you keep having to update how they are stored, but a beautifully printed piece can last for hundreds of years.
If you want digital files of your images, be prepared to pay for them. They are not included in Commission Fees. Neither are prints, albums or wall art. Those fees are for the time and talent of the photographer to come and capture what they’ve been hired to do and for the expertize of the editing plus the other general costs of running a business.
Don’t post your images online, unless the photographer has given you written permission. If they do give you permission, make sure you mention who took the image and link back to their site.
3) Do let the photographer do their job. Do listen to them on What and What Not to Wear as well. You are hiring them for their style and dressing the part helps the vision come to life. If you’ve done the research and love the style of the person you are working with, then let them do their job.
Do not micro manage the session or be a spaz. Give them control and have faith that they are doing the job you hired them for. For weddings and editorial shoots give the photographer a shot list of images and help them work down through the list.
Don’t give them a Pinterest Board of images that you want “recreated”. Wouldn’t you rather be the one being “Pinned” because of the original work you’ve commissioned. That is why you chose your photographer in the first place, right? Because you were inspired by their work.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful series of headshots for women in a local networking group called Bizzy Mamas , through a event the Melanie Toner and I offered called “Defining Your Vision”. They were laser focused mini sessions to help woman hone in on what their business goals and needs truly are. Each woman who signed up received 20 min with me and 20min with Melanie.
I am ecstatic to say we sold out both dates and are now working on a new project!!!
Without further ado, here are some sneak peeks from the events!!!

I have had this idea in my head for well over a year. I was inspired by so many different facets starting with a image of a headpiece from Pinterest. So I started making the piece Kait my model is wearing last winter.
I am so glad this shoot came together when it did!!! It could not have been more perfect from the model, to the location and to my dear amazing friend Kristen Lober who did one hell of a epic job on her makeup!!!
I finally had the film developed from our trip to Nantucket in September!!
All images were shot on my Mamiya 645 with Kodak Portra 400.
