This past spring break, Mary and Logan decided to head to the mountains where I was vacationing with family to get some EPIC pictures in Pagosa Springs, CO.. This was my first out of state shoot and is officially one of my favorite sessions to date. The scenery was unreal and so was their love for each other. I challenged myself with this shoot. Not only was I 34 weeks pregnant, but I was shooting at an unknown territory. I managed to find the perfect locations that fit them so well. Thank you guys for trusting my vision and being troopers in the snow. I can't WAIT for your big day in August!
I first met Amy and Mike the day of their engagement shoot in Fayetteville. I easily learned how sweet and insanely in love these two were. We roamed a city neither of us were familiar with and had the best time getting to know each other.
I can't WAIT for their big day coming up in 2017! :)
"I swear I couldn't love you more than I do right now, and yet I know I will tomorrow"
Beautiful. Genuine. Sweet. These are three words that perfectly describe Sarah and Kurt and their perfect day. It was an honor to be surrounded by this kind of love. Every detail of their backyard wedding was so stunning. Their first look is still my favorite to this day. Just take a look and see for yourself!

These two brought so much sweetness and joy their entire session. This was easily a highlight of 2016 for me! We roamed the lovely Southwind Hills Barn and chased the light until the sun went down. The love these two have for each other unreal and so evident in these photos. I can't wait for their wedding coming up in February!
Meet my little Graham. He's the true boss around here. He has no concept of personal space, makes messes, follows me around everywhere and allows little work to be done. Most days I try to get in all of my work (not including housework) in 2 hours (his nap time). And can I just say thank goodness for the creation of yoga pants. Honestly most days we wear our jammies but when I'm filling it, yoga pants it is! Lets not even talk about hair and makeup. I won't even go there. There are days that I can't WAIT for nap time but most days - I can't wait for him to wake to start another adventure together. Running a business from home has its challenges at times but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I get to raise my baby at home and live out my passion all at the same time and make money while doing it. I mean what's better than that?
Although he is now 20 months (We've grown a bunch & cut off the mullet since then), I couldn't resist sharing these. A little over two months ago we traveled to Texas for a family wedding. My sweet Mimi just so happen to have the cutest heard of goats and ducks - so the photographer in me had to take advantage. As you can see through the images, Graham wasn't the best shepherd, ha! My heart can't keep up with how fast time is passing. I could cry at the thought of him turning two in just four short months. I am holding on tight to every ounce of baby he has left. I love this little boy fiercely.
I am so excited to finally share one of my favorite weddings I shot this past May at Spain Ranch in Tulsa. I met Taylor and Tyler last year and I knew this day was going to be nothing short of amazing. Every detail grabbed my attention and took my breath away. From her dress, to the lovely florals & succulents, the day was so stunning. Taylor and Tyler were both so calm, giddy and so happy the whole day! I'm thankful I was a part of their love story! Also, they threw one heck of dance party! Did I mention the Bride surprised her Groom with Pistol Pete?!
Congrats you two!
A huge thanks to my girl Chelsea littleton Photography for coming through and second shooting! I couldn't have done it without you!

Sweet little Rutledge made is debut into the world today so I thought I'd celebrate by showing off the pictures from the maternity shoot I did with his gorgeous parents! There is nothing more beautiful than the sight of motherhood. Jilliann couldn't be more stunning! Can't wait to meet this sweet boy tomorrow! Congrats Grouse Family!
I am SO excited to share my FIRST EVER blog post with you guys! I'll start off by saying I am not a writer (so please don't judge). I just really want to share my sessions more in depth and show you all what I get to experience everyday. Because, it's pretty freaking great.
Welcome to the world Spencer Claire! I have been anxiously waiting on the arrival of this sweet girl. I knew she'd be adorable but seeing her in person for the first time, I was completely smitten. From her adorable little lips all the way down to her tiny toes, she is perfect! Mommy Jen and Daddy Clint did SO good and I know they are so proud. There is nothing more pure and beautiful than documenting a new life. I hope you enjoy this session as much as I do! Ps. Her momma crafted together the most perfect nursery! I loved every detail!
