Home is wherever I'm with you

I was originally supposed to take Shonna and Jays pictures for their wedding, but found out I was pregnant 2 weeks after they gave me their deposit and it turned out I was due on their wedding day! As a HUGE “I’m sorry” and wedding fit I offered to do a fun session for them […]

Engagement shoots are always so easy, they usually giggle their way through the whole session and are so smitten with each other I hardly ever have to pose a couple they just do it for me! I met Chelsey at Utah State, we did track together, and she was a high jumper! I also had […]

Taking pictures of close friends and family could possibly be one of my favorite things; I get to be involved in some of the most special moments like a new baby a wedding, or the start of a beautiful new relationship. I got to spend time with Jaden my cousin, and his beautiful fiancé and […]

Brittney Jo is from Royal City, so she knows what I am talking about when I say Eastern Washington is the best and thank goodness she found Nate so they ended up in probably the second best place, Logan!

Italia is my cousin, and boy do I feel blessed to have her! Her and Jonathon are quite the power couple, they are amazing!! We froze our bums off but, hey […]

Ok first off Jessica has the most beautiful smile. Jett and Jessica are so perfect for each other. This couple had so much fun and basically giggled their way through the session. I love it when my clients are like that. Pictures should be a reflection of who you are, when you are natural and […]

This location was gold, the rolling hills to mountains the open fields, ugh it was perfect. When Sally contacted me about pictures, she wanted me to make sure that I got the essence of Cache Valley with the mountains. Jared got a job in New York so they wanted some good pictures to remember the […]
