Kaylee | Motherhood

Maternity has to be a secret favorite of mine. Much like weddings, there is a certain ethos about submitting your body, soul and heart to another person. It is beyond anything I’ve ever seen or known! Women are such powerful beings!

Season of Surrender | An Artisan Film Story

Season of Surrender | An Artisan Film Story

This story speaks volumes about who I am inherently and season of life I am in right now. The longer I live, I learn that when authors pen a story, some part of that story reflects themselves. Whether Tolkien dreamed of being an unlikely hero like Bilbo Baggins or Frodo Baggins, an unwavering devoted friend like Samwise Gamgee, or perhaps he revealed himself to struggle with power and greed like Smeagol turned Gollum, I think we’ll never fully know. But I do know that this visual story tells so much of myself. It tells of the next stepping stone in my business journey, and it tells of the physical seasons changing. It makes me so thrilled for what’s to come and incites excitement for me in this new direction.

Farm Sessions 2018 - Part 1

 I'm over the moon at how much fun farm sessions were and I want to share a few snippets from each session. If you missed it, or are new around here, I welcomed families and couples to my family farm where I grew up. There are plenty of rustic, organic backgrounds that inspired laid back, fun-filled portraits. At my family farm, there is a wide open space surrounded by pine trees and the occasional oak tree, and if you know anything about oak trees, can I get a hallelujah for that heavenly diffused light?! Just a fair warning, there was golden sunrise madness in some of these photos! Pure liquid gold sunlight just pouring everywhere! There's some pretty great bokeh too. (BOKEH!!) It was wonderful and beautiful!
