Caroline | Mentor Session

I don’t talk about it much or advertise it a lot, but I offer mentor sessions to photographers who happen to like my work and are interested in learning from me!  I wouldn’t be where I am if I hadn’t learned from so many different and amazing photographers along the way! So, if I can share with others what I’ve learned, things I wish I knew when I was first starting out and tips that have changed my business, then I want to do it! Because not only do I love learning and growing, but I love sharing and teaching as well! I definitely don’t know it all, or even close to that, but whatever I do know, I love sharing!
I met with Caroline at Starbucks to talk about all things photography, editing and business! We instantly connected and have so many things in common, which means I didn’t just have a mentor session, I made a friend! She is so kind and I’ve already been able to see her photography grow since we met up! These first photos you’ll see are photos of Caroline, because along with a mentor session, you get updated head shots! She is so beautiful and natural in front of the camera! And after we took her head shots, we took photos of my gorgeous friend Tina! I walked Caroline through how I approach shoots, including everything from directing clients, to lighting, to posing and everything in between! I’ve been loving mentor sessions and this one was an especially fun one for me! :)

Kira and Eva | Portraits

I’ve had the chance to photograph these cute girls a few times now! They, like most children, start out a little shy when I bring out my big camera. So we like to switch it up, instead of trying to get them to do posed portraits, we go to the park and play! They get to fun around, be free and have fun and I get to capture it all! I think it’s such a great way to document your children exactly how they are at that age!

Lindsay and Landon | Baby Announcement

This post will be short and sweet, because we didn’t do a full shoot for this! There’s not much variety, okay, there’s not any variety because this was for one purpose only! These photos announced that MY SISTER and BROTHER-IN-LAW are pregnant and expecting a baby! This is the first baby for our whole family, so that means it’s the first time I’ll be an aunt! It’s such an exciting time for all of us and I’m so happy for them and thankful I have the chance to document it all! :)
My sister and brother-in-law’s last name is “Flowers” which is why we went with the “flower” theme! I picked up a few small bouquets from Trader Joe’s, we stuck them in this giant bush to create a sort of frame around them! And they picked out what they wanted their letter board to say and this is what we got! I love it!! :)

Diekman | Family

I have known the beautiful lady in these photos for as long as I can remember! I spent my early years growing up with her and now it’s been such a privilege to be able to watch her own family grow! I will never get tired of the opportunities that photography has given me, like capturing special moments and special people in the lives of those that are special to me! :) We started the shoot at their house for a more playful and lifestyle approach to photos and then headed to a wash nearby for a few outdoor photos too! I love that we were able to mix it up! :)

Tripp | Family

This is one of the sweetest families ever and I’m so grateful they continue to give me the opportunity of photographing them every year! Photo sessions with children this young be a challenge, and they’re not always up for posing, but it helps so much when the family is able to go with the flow and have a positive attitude no matter how unpredictable the children are being! And that’s why this beautiful family is so much fun to work with! :)
