And Baby Makes Three | Rapid City, SD Maternity Photographer

I had such a great time photographing this beautiful couple as they begin their journey to parenthood.  They have been keeping this news a secret and wanted to use the resulting images from this session to finally announce it to everyone. I am honored that they chose me for such a special reveal and can’t wait until fall to have them in front of my camera again for their maternity session.

Jerod {Rapid City, SD High School Senior Photographer}

I have been thanking my lucky stars every weekend. We had yet another beautiful fall Sunday afternoon, perfect for Part I of Jerod’s senior session. We started at the popular Art Alley and then moved on to a nature spot full of awesome shooting opportunities.

Jerod and his mom kept me entertained the entire time and even shared a few belly laughs when he lost his footing after getting some shots in the creek. Luckily it was at the end of our session.

O Family {Rapid City, SD Family Photographer}

What a difference a day makes!

For tonight’s family session, I went back out to yesterday’s vibrant location, only to discover that the high winds from last night had knocked off most of the changing leaves. It was still a beautiful spot for this wonderful family of four, and am hopeful that what remains green will turn yellow in the coming days.

This family was a lot of fun and a dream to photograph. Exciting things await them as they prepare to leave South Dakota in the near future and I wish them the best of luck in the next phase of their Air Force journey.

Happy Fall Y’all! {Rapid City, SD Teen and Senior Portrait Photographer}

Fall is here! My most favorite season of all. It’s time for hoodies, boots, hot drinks and everything cinnamon (yep, I think I am the 1% that is not a pumpkin person).

Realizing that this weekend is peak around here, I was itching to shoot, so I contacted my friend Jen from Jennifer Norrick Photography and asked her if she wanted to go location scouting with me.

A couple of hours later, we were on the road with her daughter Olivia in tow.

We found our location, and although it was super overcast and windy, we found some great spots to shoot in and even got lucky with color. It was a great time and very much needed therapy for me. Sometimes it’s just fun to get together, shoot for yourself with no pressure, and share some laughs. It also helps when we have such a beautiful and cooperative subject.

See for yourself!

Meet Ryan, a complete natural in front of the camera. His sense of style and easy going personality made this session a complete blast. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him.

Beautiful Bella

I just returned from an amazing photography trip to Miami, where I had the most wonderful time hanging out and shooting with some very talented photographer friends. We had a few days of fun and challenging shoots, photographing models in different age ranges at some very inspiring locations.

Miss Bella was my first session of the weekend. We met at Matheson Hammock, a scenic park just south of Coral Gables, and although she was a little shy and quiet at first, she eventually warmed up and her personality shined through. Isn’t she adorable?!
