Ben & Morgan {engagement}

Their love palpable, you can see it as they speak to one another with their eyes... the little glances, quiet moments, and hugs are as audible as words speaking love. 

Ben and Morgan have a pretty special place in my heart because I have had the honor of witnessing their friendship start, grow, and blossom into love over the past 7 or so years as they studied martial arts under my husband's tutelage. Their love for one another is eclipsed only by their open love for the Lord, and have honored Him with preeminence in their lives and their relationship with each other... it's a sweet thing to see, I wish you could see through the window of their life that I get to view! Both Ben and Morgan have big hearts, are ready to serve in any capacity, are full of zest for life of adventure, and have the personal discipline to push through walls and conquer them! 

They are getting ready to tie the knot September 1st, to follow life's adventures as formidable pair! :) Ben and Morgan, I wish you all the blessings of marriage, all the joys of facing life's ups and downs with your best friend, confidante, and partner at your side to cheer you on and hold your hand and heart during both the happy and sad times. You two are so special, and I'm so honored to call you friends!



Travis {Portrait Session}

His forte is information technology, his skill for making the guitar sing is remarkable, his personality is sincere and kind. Travis is the guy you call when your computers aren't talking to each other and you can't figure out how to make your computers behave. He's the technology counselor guru!

Travis needed some portraits so we met in the late afternoon to make good use of the soft golden light. I had a great time traipsing around the property, and the field next door!

While in Tennessee on a working vacation with my family this Spring, I had the immense pleasure of photographing some dear friends one warm Spring evening. I've known Tim and Rachel since I was a teen, and have watched them as they have raised their five little kids, moved, and built a beautiful home (with the most amazing view!). Their commitment to one another is strong, quiet, and comforting. I love this picture I captured of them in their front field; to me it embodies who they are to a 't'!


Stevie {6 months}

The sun was working overtime to warm the chilly winter day as I drove over the hills and through the woods to this charming little boy's home. Little Stevie celebrated his 6 month of life in this world and I was honored with the chance to document his chubby cheeks, adorable smile, and soft fuzzy hair. Stevie's latest skill was mastering the well balanced sitting position, so we put that to good use and got some adorable pictures! :) Doesn't he have the most squeezable cheeks ever?!


Colten {Senior 2011}

It was an amazingly warm and sunny day for Autumn when I met with this 2011 highschool senior, Colten! His mom and brother came along for the fun as we wandered the grounds of High Hill Ranch in Apple Hill, and later drove to an old road up in the mountains! Colten is a very steady, calm guy who was great to work with! His passion in life involves mountains and snow... and a very cool snowboard! :) Jodi, Colten's mom asked me to grab a few shots of Colten and his little brother, so we had some fun taking pictures of both boys here and there throughout Colten's senior shoot. It was a beautiful day for taking pictures!
