kelsey + chad // engaged

I’ve been trying to think of a way to describe the love between this future bride and groom. Profoundly descriptive words escape me, so I will keep it simple: Chad and Kelsey are excited to be together. Not with a hasty excitement, but with an […]

danielle + jacob // engaged

It’s been said opposites attract, so it’s no wonder these two found each other! Jacob is a little bit country;  Danielle is a little bit city (though Jacob seems to be rubbing off on her — look at those cute boots!)! Danielle is soft spoken and […]

To get the grandparents, the great grandkids and everyone in between together in one place is a rarity. So, in September when I was asked by Shelley (someone very dear to me) to take family portraits at the 60th anniversary party (Sixty years? HUGE congrats, […]
