Years ago, before I had a studio, I took a few photos on location and even from my empty living room.

A few people saw what I was doing and liked it.

Liz and her mom Larae fit in that category.

They believed in me, and I think I can say that Liz’s senior photo session was a “break out” session for me.

Her beauty and confidence, plus her beautiful horse allowed me to really showcase the photos I wanted to take and just needed the opportunity to!

I had been taking photos on the side, part-time, prior to her session and shortly after her session, I had the confidence to go for it full-time.

So, first off, right here and now, I want to say: Thank you Liz + Larae!

I’ve had fun and shared so many laughs with this family, and that makes my work so much more inspired.

Without further ado, here are Brock (the only man good enough for Liz, in my opinion!) + Liz.

The joy you see here, is the real deal.

This spontaneous moment before the festivities began was sooooo special.

And this is absolutely classic for this mother daughter team.

So many amazing moments on this epic day!

Wishing you all the best that you so richly deserve Brock + Liz!

Ethan + Cari chose to come back to Nebraska to tie the knot, and I am so glad they did!

Currently residing in Arizona, coming to home to Nebraska for a St Patrick’s Day wedding was risky!

Almost five years ago, I photographed Cari’s sister Amy + brother-in-law Jake’s wedding. 

Working with this family has been such a blessing.

The big day ended up being mild, although a little chilly, so we were able get some fun outside shots!

The first look is always one of my favorite parts of the day and I thought Ethan + Cari were so genuine and sweet.

Lots of great moments throughout the day…Happy 3 weeks of marriage to Ethan + Cari!

It is such a joy to see couples who have me take their wedding photos, come back and have me take their baby photos!

Initially, I met Ellan when I took her senior photos, then I took her sister Hailey’s photos, then Ellan and Garrett’s wedding photos..and now Kip’s newborn photos.

The connection with my clients is one of my favorite parts of being a photographer. 

My clients often become my close friends and that is the ultimate.

So today, I get to share a peek at Kip’s newborn photos today.
