Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Here you will find a culmination of things including tons of photos of my children, random thoughts on life and my journey to build a Photography business, sneak peeks for clients, and who knows what else :) I.LOVE.PHOTOGRAPHY.

I am a mostly self-taught Wedding and Portrait Photographer and I am always looking for new clients. I prefer on-location, natural light Photography and I am always looking to challenge myself! I recently relocated to Central Oregon and am available for photoshoots in any of the nearby areas. Please feel free to contact me if you like my work and are interested in scheduling a session with me! I would love to hear from you!

Grab some coffee and stay awhile :) And if you see an image you like, feel free to leave a comment...I love comments!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to tag along as a second shooter to a fabulous wedding! I was asked awhile back by Heather Hart to attend the wedding with her to help out. Of course I said yes :) I have been wanting to get more experience photographing wedding so this was perfect.

The wedding was held at Illinois State Beach Resort and the weather was perfect. Although a bit humid, the clouds helped keep the harsh sun under control. The ceremony was outdoors in front of a beautiful cross made by the bride's brother. Following the ceremony, cocktails and appetizers were served outside and then everyone retreated to the reception site that was indoors.

Needless to say, everything went very well and M & G's wedding was gorgeous. From the dress (that was her grandmother's), the veil (that was her mother's), the decorations, and the friends and family there supporting the bride and groom on their special day....it truly was a great experience! Both families were such inspirational followers of Christ and I couldn't have asked for a more welcoming wedding party :)

Thank you again Heather for inviting me to attend! To M & G, I wish you all the best in your life together and may God bless you in everything you choose to do!

Now, on the sneak peek :) I always have such a hard time choosing photos to post and this was no easy feat! This is a lengthy post to say the least, but I chose my favorites (a few from the ceremony, getting ready and several detail shots).

What a beautiful setting!
