Your Life is Beautiful

Gosh I love this family! Meghann is also a photographer in the Iowa City area (check her senior portrait work out here!) Not only do they always look great, but they are just a ton of fun to be around. These guys were troopers on the day of this session as it was drizzling rain […]

Iowa City Family Photography

A bit of an unconventional proposal/engagement session, Limy and Javier have actually been married for 10 years but he never actually officially “proposed” to her! Since it was their 10 year anniversary, Javier and his sister in law Elba wanted to surprise Limy with a belated, but “official” proposal and I was there to capture […]

Chicago Portrait Photographers | Mayslake Forest Preserve Engagement

Stacy and Eric’s family is always so much fun to photograph, it’s hard to believe we’ve been taking photos together since Laine was just a few months old! This September session near Iowa River Power Company was a lot of fun, even if Leni was not amused. 😉 Their newest edition Stewball was a perfect […]

Iowa City Family Photographers | Fall Portraits with a Pup

I can’t believe January marked one year of this sweet, smiley boy! We met at the beautiful Burnett Cottage in Cedar Rapids for this bright, cozy session, which was the perfect background for this gorgeous family. I just love watching the two boys interact, they are gonna have so much fun growing up together!

Cedar Rapids Child Photographers | First Birthday Portraits

The Chambers family are one of my favorite to photograph and it was so great to see them again! I love the connection Reid and Laura have with Jack. You can tell from the photos they are a family that loves to laugh and have fun together. I couldn’t believe how much more grown up […]

Styling for Your Session | Iowa City Photographer

This was my first time photographing Jen’s family but they are the type of people you just felt like you’ve known for years – super easy to work with, fun to be around, and how adorable are their kids? After their first choice location was flooded (Palisades Park, the elusive Iowa location that is constantly […]

Iowa City Family + Pet Photographers | Iowa Memorial Union Session

What a journey! I’ve known Holly since her daughter Elliot was born (who is now 7, how!?!) and she’s a dear friend of mine now! I have loved documenting so many of her family’s milestones, including her intimate Rapid Creek Cidery wedding (see the old blog here) and recently had the pleasure of documenting her […]

Iowa City Maternity Photographers | Fossil Gorge Session

I hadn’t seen the K family since Madeline, their youngest, was just a newborn. Nothing makes you feel like time is flying by until you realize that tiny baby you photographed is now a two year old! It is adorable how much she looks up to her older sister Adelaide and even copied her sassy […]

Iowa Family Photographers | Lake MacBride Portrait Session

Gosh, I met Jess and Frank back when they were pregnant with Liam. Now he’s looking so grown up and is such a great big brother! It’s been really fun to watch their two boys change over the years. As you parents all know, the more the kids grow up the easier and more efficient […]
