Courtney & Brad’s Maternity Session: Scottsdale, AZ

One of the best parts of my job is getting to see a couple grow into a family. When I shoot a wedding day I am always taken back by the magnitude of what is going on around me. Even though I’ve photographed well over 100 weddings it never gets old. Never. It is truly beautiful. Yes, I am that photographer who shoots with tears in my eyes during vows & parent dances. Without fail, every time! When Courtney & Brad asked me to take their maternity photos I was honored. Honored to document their engagement, wedding & now their first baby. They are waiting to find out the gender of this little one and my bets are on a girl. The little sweetie loves photos already as he/she was kicking throughout the session. A couple of which we were able to get a shot of, look very closely!;)

C & B~ I hope you know how much I adore you two. I am blessed by your friendship & can’t wait to see the plans God has for your growing family. XOXO


Jes & Brett: Bismarck, ND Engagement

Jes & Brett’s love story would begin long before they even knew it. In high school they were strictly friends although there was always a question in their minds “what if”. What if they started dating? What if it actually worked out? It would take several years & many life adventures for them to get to a place where they could explore that option. And once they did just that 7 months ago, they never looked back. Wedding plans are in the making and these high school friends are excited to begin their next big adventure, marriage!

J & B~ I so enjoyed our evening together! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful evening. Photographing your love was a delight!


Michelle & Jay: Scottsdale, AZ Engagement Session

It was the first day of class when Michelle spotted him, the handsome guy who carried himself with confidence. That would be the last time they laid eyes on each other for a few months. Michelle continued to attend class while Jay, well not so much. Although it was only a matter of time when these two would cross paths again and this time around it would be forever.  Michelle & Jay make an incredible couple. They share a love for sports, dogs, their family & friends. Their chemistry is undeniable making for an effortless, beautiful relationship. I was blessed to photograph this incredibly exciting time in their lives.

M & J~ What an amazing evening it was taking your engagement pictures.  March will be here before ya know it!


Anderson Family: Bismarck, ND

It was a fun & eventful family session with this lovely fam! ND summers are gorgeous & this location had me swooning over the natural light and greenery. Sam is an awesome big bro to Miles who wasn’t a huge fan of the camera. Despite his best efforts I managed to get a few great shots of his cuteness.:)

Thanks A family for allowing me to document this precious time in your lives!


Kopseng Family

I absolutely love my time with this family! I have taken their pics for a few years now, my camera never gets sick of those beautiful blue eyes.

One perk of my trips back to my hometown (Bismarck,ND) is I do family sessions. I only offer them in ND because in AZ I am too busy with engagement & wedding photography. I love my loyal families & enjoy watching kiddos grow throughout the years.

I am excited to announce I will be back at the end of August and available for 4 session bookings!!!! They can be family, senior, engagement, you name it! Email me for session details,
