Hello

Monica & Cory

A Walker Homestead Fall Wedding

Weddings

I knew going into this wedding day that it was going to be filled with so much joy and love, but, truly, I was still blown away by Monica and Cory and their families and friends. Their first date was in mid-2019, but they had met almost a decade before. They reconnected in 2018 because […]

Family & Kids

I was so excited when Bethany and Zach reached out a few months ago about newborn photos! I met them back in 2014 (!!) when I photographed their engagement shoot and loved celebrating with them at their wedding in 2015. Shortly after, they purchased a home about half a mile from us so we are […]

Addie loves being outside and says that her favorite colors are neutral and earthy and the areas that we used were all very close to her home […]

The Yoder Family

Family & Kids

It was a family weekend in Iowa for the Yoders and, months ago, Megan had contacted me for some updated photos of them all together. The request was “one photo of all of us and one of the grandparents and grandkids together.” Done and done. Plus some. 🙂
