Family Session | Fontana | Hazelton, Iowa


It’s always nice to see an old friend. I went to high school with Kaela and we did a session back in August with her spunky little girl Quinn.

We went to Fontana Park in Hazelton, IA. It’s a nice little place to visit if you’ve never been. They have a little section of wildlife you can see! Quite a few jetty's to fish off of, camping and a playground, hiking too! A lot of different scenery at Fontana, which means plenty of places to photograph!

I’m always willing to travel to my clients, I love photographing in new places.

 There was never a dull moment with this girl!

School Pictures | Now offering services to Daycare's/Preschools | Cedar Falls and Waterloo, IA

Wow! I am so excited to be able to offer this new service to the Cedar Valley! 

I have been dreaming for a long time about making this available through my business. And I've finally decided to make it a reality. I will now be offering 'School Pictures' to daycare's and preschools - complete with print packages for the parents! 

I've worked with children in the daycare setting for roughly 5-6 years. I absolutely loved it, and I love photographing children! I want to provide better quality, and better service to the staff and parents at your daycare center! 

These aren't your traditional, standard school pictures. These are going to be cuter! No more harsh lighting or fake smiles. I'm going to give you options - like one pose better than the other, like them all? No problem, you get to choose! What happens if you don't like any of the pictures? We'll do a picture retake day, just like the other companies. 

Okay, okay, maybe I don't always get some smiles ALL the time. But those young ones are stubborn sometimes! Ah well, they're still pretty cute.

I loovvveeee black and white photos. This will be an option for you on the form. I won't have a ton of options for background colors. I'm going to keep it simple and neutral so it will go with whatever outfit you decide to dress your child in. Not sure what to put your child in for this special picture? No worries, feel free to e-mail me or message me on Facebook. You can also go to Pinterest and search 'what to wear for children's pictures' or 'what to wear for pictures' and you will see a wonderful variety of cordinating colors.  

Share this with your daycare/preschool center! Daycare's and preschools, contact me about more details! I look forward to working with you! 

Sunflower Mini Sessions now available for July 2018

I'm so excited to announce that I will be offering these Summer mini sessions. Sunflower fields are so gorgeous, but hard to find in Iowa. When I found this one I thought why the heck not!? 

Sunflower Mini Sessions will be held for a short period of time as they do not last long. I'm holding them in the evening because that is the best lighting for sessions. They will be held this week 7/24 - 8/2. Each session is 15 minutes long (but I typically run over, more like 20 minutes). With these sessions you'll receive 5 digital images that you'll get to choose, the rest are available for purchase. 



I promise it's worth it! This field was gorgeous! I do recommend you bring bug spray, the bugs were pretty bad and you'll have to walk through tall grass (again, worth it).

Another thing I love to do (for free obviously) is help my clients choose their outfits for the session. Outfit planning is one of the most stressful things about the session, and I can help take some of that pressure off! Whether it's something you found in the store or something you already have in your closet, send me a picture and I will gladly help you plan out you and your families outfits. They are an important part in the photos! 



I love summer sessions in general, but I especially love the wild flower fields we have around here. 


Contact me before time runs out! Can't wait to see you!

Genesee | 1 year old Milestone Session | Children's Photographer | Cedar Falls and Waterloo, Iowa

I love Milestone Sessions! Little Genesee was such a sweetie pie.

Cake smash sessions are always messy, and almost every time I forget to bring clean-up supplies when they are held outdoors. *face palm* But who doesn't love cake!? For Genesee's session we were able to get in a few different styled scenes. When you book your milestone session with me, they can be held indoors or outdoors and last about an hour. This is just enough time for your little punkin' to get in a couple outfit changes and be entertained before getting too crabby!

For this session I was able to provide the tea table and chair. They happen to be my Mother's from when she was a little girl. It worked perfectly! And it's just the right size for little ones! Genesee's Momma brought the cutest outfit and headband! I always offer free outfit consultation prior to your session, you as a client have access to my client closet as well. This helps us stay on the same page as to what type of scene or style you are going for!

Isn't her little bunny headband the cutest!?

Another reason why I love Milestone sessions is because I get to see your little cuties grow into their wonderful personalities. Life is short, let's capture these little moments while we can. They don't stay little for long. 

For this session I brought along the Floral Ring I made which was used during the month of May for Spring Mini Sessions. It went perfectly with Genesee's outfit! She looks so adorable!

Look at her cheesy little grin! I hope you had a fabulous first Birthday Genesee!

I'm so glad summer is finally here! I've missed all the greenery and photographing outdoors!
