Crazy Beautiful Life


So much has been going on behind-the-scenes and I'm excited to share with you that I have fully expanded to be a full service photography and design studio.  I am excited to work with you from planning, to capturing your memories, to helping you narrow down your favorites to show off on your walls -- hello, brag wall! I have also brought my graphic design knowledge into my business and will now be offering Save the Dates, invitations, and more! This is just another way I am hoping to help you, by only having to work with one person for all aspects that include your photos instead of having to worry that you are choosing the right designer, printer and photos.


I have opened up my buisness to be full-service in the aspect that I will be taking on more lifestyle, family, and portrait sessions. Reaching out into other styles of portraits helps the creative side to be boosted and I am so happy to be able to capture all the beautifully chaotic moments in life!


On the personal side of my life there is even more craziness happening.

First I moved into a gorgeous new twin home; I am loving the space, the gorgeous fireplace and of course the walk-in closet. ;)

Then I added a little furball to my life in the form of a 2 year old kitty. She is a tortoiseshell cat with a very strong purr, a bit of attitude but a huge cuddler at night. We've named her Riley and couldn't be happier to have her.


And last, but definitely not least, I got ENGAGED! Christopher proposed at the Garth Brooks concert in Omaha and we even ended up on the Kiss Cam and I got to flash my ring to a sold-out arena! The woman sitting next to us snapped a photo right after I said yes :)

Excited, yet nervous to be stepping out from behind the camera and get to be in the shoes of one of my clients. If any of my past or upcoming brides want to give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it!


I am very lucky to be able to call this amazing life mine, and excited for what the future will bring!

I am excited to be able to expand by business even more into the design side and be able to create moments you can hang on your wall. Have any questions? Let's chat!

It’s your love story. Brag a little.™
