Back from blog hiatus with the most fun family!

Full disclosure. My blog went on a 4 month hiatus. I was thinking about deleting it altogether because, to be totally transparent, it's hard to keep up with! But, I also really want to share my recent work with everyone and dote on my amazing clients, and a blog is the best way to do that. So I apologize for the lack of updates and I vow to do better! 

It's been overwhelmingly busy this year (fantastic problem to have!) so a little break from blogging was actually a good thing because my turnaround time for client photos has been on point. But now I have A LOT of catching up to do! Starting with the Wheeler family (from earlier this year...like April) They were so amazing though! A very close family with hilarious chemistry, madly in love grandparents, a little break for a quick yoga session and a couple of the cutest kiddos! Perfect excuse to start blogging again. Enjoy a few of my favorites from their shoot! 

Happy Half Year Kate and Jason!

When I first met with Kate I knew immediately that I wanted to be there to photograph her wedding. So I crossed my fingers extra tight hoping she felt the same way! She was down-to-earth, kind, intelligent, and completely in love with her best friend. I could see it in her eyes how excited she was and how positively sure she was that she wanted to marry Jason. This is what I love about being a wedding photographer. It's the people who are so genuinely excited for their wedding to come, not for the party, but for the actual marriage that follows. Kate and Jason chose a time of year they loved at a little place they loved with the people they loved most in the world, and of course, each other. One of the most memorable details of the day was Kate's wedding dress. She combined her mother's wedding dress with her grandmother's dress to create her very own. It turned out absolutely perfect! The whole day was intimate, beautiful, sentimental and the start of a very long and happy marriage. 

When Snow is Magic

Being born and raised in Iowa, I'm never super excited about the snow. Especially this year when it lasted through the middle of April! But for a couple of little girls who were visiting from overseas, it was a much different story! Unfortunately it was WAY too cold to drag this family outside the day they were in Clinton for their session. But that didn't stop their little ones from enjoying the beauty of a white covered world through the sliding glass door.

I'll share just a few favorites from their little indoor lifestyle shoot!
