Like most photographers, it’s been on my bucket list to shoot a destination wedding since I started my business 9 years ago, but if I’m being honest, the idea always felt too risky and scary. Too much out of my control, too much pressure, I’d never even been out of the country before! But then […]

Brides, I can’t encourage you enough to focus more on your marriage than your wedding. Yes, the wedding day is magical, you feel like the center of the universe (as you should) and you have a blast, but what about after? After, when bills come, jobs change, challenges pop up. Then what? Then, you have […]

One of the best parts of what I do is sharing the most joyous times of peoples lives with them. What’s even better? Getting to share the joy with them a second time around. I met big brother Collin a couple years ago, and now got to meet Baby Tessa. How sweet are those stork […]

Katie & Dylan // Sioux Falls Photographer


Last week I shared my must haves for new mommas, you can read that list here! Initially, I was going to call this must have list for babies. But, if I’ve learned one thing after having three kids, it’s that all they really need is a clean diaper and full belly. So as long as […]

10 Fave Baby Items of a 3rd Time Momma // Sioux Falls Photographer

Babies, Bellies, Birth, Motherhood, Newborns, Personal

Seeing a new life never gets old. Literally millions of things have to go perfectly right for a healthy baby to be born. It’s astounding. I met this beautiful girl less than 8 hours after she was born and she was a yet another completely perfect example of everything going just right.
