McKinley's Newborn Session

Sugar and spice and everything nice – that’s what little girls are made of.

McKinley is no exception. Such a sweet little girl with the cutest little grin.

Snuggling this little one was just perfect – and her big blue eyes and perfect newborn hair left me itching for another baby!

Enjoy some of my favorites of little Miss McKinley!

Stephanie & Brian | Engaged

Stephanie & Brian’s engagement session in his hometown of Craig, CO was quite the journey.

but the trees, the colors, and the unique property that has been in Brian’s family for generations were definitely worth the trip.

Bethany & Brandon’s Grant Humphries Mansion Wedding

“It’s your day.”

As a bride or groom, you hear it all the time. It’s your day.

Most people think of this notion in terms of what it means for their flowers, their dress, their venue, etc.

Not for Bethany and Brandon.

To them, “It’s your day” meant “Today is a day to celebrate your love…with everyone you love. Today is a day to be exactly who you are, together and as each other.”

It was their day…to start the rest of their life. 

which is much more important than what color the napkins are.

Enjoy some of my favorite images from their day.

Stephanie + Matt | Married

True backyard weddings are rare. You know, the weddings that are actually in a backyard. Not just a “backyard feel,” but actually in the yard that was yours growing up.

Stephanie and Matt not only had a true backyard wedding, but they had a fantastic backyard wedding. All in the comfort of Steph’s childhood home. Plus, what other venue lets your dog tag along for the entire wedding day?

Enjoy some of my favorite images from Stephanie and Matt’s perfect day.
