Toby || Senior 2019

Well, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted on this blog. It’s been a crazy busy summer and I am so absolutely thankful for my business and all the clients turned friends I have been able to meet! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

Anyway! I’m just glad to be sharing this space with you all again!

It’s been a crazy busy fall, I’ve had a lot of senior shoots, but the next few are pretty near to my heart.

Like this dude - I met him in 2015, he was a spire young fella. A little reserved but when you get him to open up, he is hilarious and has THE BEST laugh. It’s absolute insanity that this dude is going to graduate this year.

I absolutely love pouring into teens (it’s my side hustle, yo), and watching them grow and merge into this adult forms of themselves. It’s not a total change from when they were young, but it’s a deepening of their personalities and a blooming of the snippet’s you can occasionally see. This guy is no exception. I’m excited to see what the future holds for him!

Here’s to you, Toby!

Wiltse Family

I first talked to Renata a few months ago, when she said she would be in Iowa in late November, I was at first concerned about the weather - because Iowa is unpredictable, we could have ten feet of snow or a beautiful balmy day!

It ended up being the PERFECT day, with PERFECT light, and the most PERFECT family. haha

It was a lot of fun to hang out with you guys and I am so glad I had the pleasure of meeting you! :)

Emily - 2018 Senior

If you don't know Emily - let me take a second and just say that she has one of the most genuine smiles, caring hearts, and beautiful personalities of any person I have EVER met.

Her smile lights up her whole face and she is always willing to give a smile to everyone she meets! Emily is a true light and joy to those who know her! She is passionate about the things in life she loves - God, drums, her family, and her church family. 

I was SO excited to be able to have the honor of taking her senior photos. She is truly a special person that brings joy to everyone she meets. 

So here's to Emily - on your last year in High School, remember to carry your joy through life and you will go far!

Can't wait to share the finished gallery! :) :)
