tanner & brianne.

are getting married in november! so, we met up to do their portrait session -early, 6am early, but it was worth it since we were melting by the end of it at 8am!

here are a few of my favorites from the day! i so look forward to their beautiful wedding ceremony!

this might be my favorite. you are beautiful brianne.
it's so sweet how gently he loves her.

i told them to "go get all cozy in there" & they did a fine job!
love this one.
tanner's turn for kisses.
& you can tell they kinda enjoy each other's company...

beautiful sunrise light... yummy.

tanner is really good at long boarding. so we had fun playing around in a faux alley.

aren't they a great looking couple?!

thanks for asking me to witness your beautiful love for eachother!!!! can't wait for november!

sarah-anne & stan

are some of our favorite peops. they've added a new addition to the family since we last saw them. sarah-anne was what, 7 months pregnant, when they moved to santa fe, new mexico. so we missed his birth & they missed finn's.

you might remember this family, from when sebastien was born! sebastien is now the big brother to simon. two adorable little boys. finn had a blast playing with them as we visited.

we did a little portrait session while i was there, before i start off with their pictures- here's one of all of us together.

finn hung out in the ergo during the shoot, which i always wanted to try while he was younger, but it's definitely not that easy now that he's older & would rather be running around :)

meet simon. he has the most amazing eyes.
sebastien is as sweet as i remember him!

love this one!

& this one...

daddy with the boys.

absolute favorite. please, please get this one on canvas for your living room!!!
but this one is cute too!
hiya! simon has this adorable 'bite the corner of my mouth thing...

sebastien... i can't describe how sweet & cute he is.

brothers... it's a fierce kinda love.
sweet happy boy. girls better watch out that smile & he gives flowers.

mama & simon.

kissee kissee. i love this next series.

i asked them to be affectionate :)


sebu loves his mama.

thanks for letting me/us play with you guys! it was so nice to meet you simon.

it's been brought to my attention that the contact page on my website has not been working for quite awhile, about 2 months. i've not received any leads from there. i've gotten leads from my magazine ads, facebook & website ads, so it took awhile to notice.

so if you have sent me an inquiry from there... please resend it & accept my sincere apologies!!!

my web guy is working on figuring out what in the heck happened!

"To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury,
and refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable; and
wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think
quietly, talk gently, act frankly...to listen to stars and buds, to babes and
sages, with open heart; await occasions,
hurry never...this is my symphony."

the dowell's

theresa is one of my dearest friends from highschool. she organized her family to be in the same place at the same time so i could attempt to get them in a picture, hopefully several. her brother's are extremely entertaining.

they'd just been on a sweet road trip to yellowstone together, minus matthew, so they had lots of new material to entertain me with.

here are a few of my favorites from our little romp around bernheim forest.

a few traditional shots.


i can hear the boys ehhhhhhhhh! but i think it's sweet.

my favorite.

& then i really love these next two.

i photographed theresa & jeff's wedding 5 years ago. they were maybe my 4th wedding. ever. so we did a few of just them to celebrate their anniversary!

thanks guys. it's always a good time with ya'll.
