Meinika Family Portraits

I have known the Meinika/Trier Family for about 10 years.  Before all of us had kiddos of our own we would go on huge family vacations with The Meinika Family.  They are blessed to have a very talented photographer of their own among the family; that is why it was even more of an honor […]

French Family Portraits

I love photographing larger family groups!  Jenny contacted me about family portraits and I was thrilled at how excited she sounded about being photographed out at our place.  I think our woods and barn are fabulous, but I also understand that it isn’t the style some are looking for and that is okay.  This family […]

Beautiful Family Portraits

Chelsea and Nate are great friends of ours!  Nate and my husband have had some great fun on the Gator back in these woods.  The same woods that they use to romp around in were transformed into a beautiful backdrop for their family portraits.  The day was absolutely perfect for pictures.  The neutral color pallet […]

Alysse’s Maternity Portraits

My sister and her husband are preparing for their first child.  I’m so excited for her and can’t wait til their little Everly Anne arrives!  Maternity portraits are best taken between weeks 32-36.  Much before 32 weeks and your baby bump isn’t prominent enough and after 36 weeks you begin to get uncomfortable.  Let’s be […]
