Family Photography

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!

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!

Ogren Family | Farm House Session | Denver, Iowa

I love getting to do Family Sessions. And this one was special! My distant cousin Heather contacted me to ask if I could come to her Grandparent's farm (my Great Aunt and Uncle) to do their session. It is a gorgeous acreage set back in the field off of the highway in Denver, Iowa - the farm has a special place in Heather's heart. 


The farm isn't far from where I'm located in Cedar Falls and I don't mind traveling to my clients, plus I got to see family that I don't get to see very often. 

The Ogren's will soon become a family of four and it was no problem at all to throw in a few maternity photos for them as well! 

I also photographed Heather's first pregnancy so it was nice to see little Wyatt growing up! 



Paul and Heather are sooooo cute together. They rocked their couples photos and needed no direction, they're naturals! You can just feel and see the love radiating off of them in their images.



I love Summer time sessions, look at those gorgeous flowers. And that front porch! So magical!



Wyatt is also a natural in front of the camera. It didn't take long for him to warm up to me, Grandpa was a huge help in getting him to smile in the beginning though! 



Maternity sessions are also some of my favorites, Heather was absolutely glowing! And that dress! I might be obsessed with floral. 


We also found some beautiful purple flowers next to the field and had to crawl in the patch! 



I can't wait to meet their little squish and I look forward to the day I get to photograph their family again.
