Just Grandma and Me {Donna + Lillian}

I got to meet sweet Lillian last Fall at a photo shoot with her mom and dad. Lucky for me, her Grandma Donna contacted me shortly after to set up her own session with me!

Donna recently moved to Iowa from the western side of the country to be closer to her sweet granddaughter and of course her son and daughter in law too. She was able to bring work with her and set up an office in her beautiful new home. It was important for Donna to capture this stage of life and I took my job as her storyteller seriously. We photographed some of the things that make her who she is. Her craftiness, kitchen skills, love of reading, Christianity and the love she has for Lillian.

I loved walking into her world for an hour on a sunny Winter afternoon to get to know her and her family a bit better and photograph what I hope will be meaningful images they always hold dear. I’m already looking forward to working with them again someday!

Catherine & Mike are Getting Married!

I am getting so excited! Catherine and Mike will be tying the knot in just a little over two weeks! These two were absolutely amazing during their engagement session last Fall. I barely had to give them any direction and they nailed their poses every. single. time. I can’t even believe how many amazing shots we got in the fifteen minutes we were together. That’s right, 15 MINUTES! It was a cold day (nothing like today though, thank goodness), and instead of rescheduling, they decided to just grin and bear it. You can’t even tell they were actually freezing. Now here’s to hoping it warms up just a little bit for their February Winter wedding!
