Wild hearts + windy days…we put together this inspiration shoot during our road trip with the little ones. Our camper was parked just a few feet from where we were shooting. Very special thanks to Elizabeth Dye for letting us play for a day with Valhalla + my sweet friends Dani + Andy for driving […]

Now THIS is how you plan a wedding…in complete secret. We were pulled into this fabulous charade a year ago + I’m pumped to finally share some sneak peeks from Paul + Tanja’s SURPRISE wedding on their condo rooftop in Chicago…not even their family knew! Guests arrived under the guise that they were celebrating the […]

The Book of Mike – 082215      When I lay here in bed on my back, I tap on the candle lid and look at the fan, thinking about what photos you’re taking and how bright you’re making everyones day. You are such a sunshine for my life and the world around you. I […]

*The Book of Mike* The more I am grateful for, the more I shall gain. True to my world around me is true to my existence. Every morning when my feet hit the floor, I shall thank all that crosses my path for the experience which comes my way. Good or bad I shall see […]

April 2018 – Somewhere in the Nevada desert at a random Hot Spring. Journal Entry from The Book of Mike – 032518   ____________________________________   I turn off the noise and listen to the birds chatter. I remember when the sounds of my world were everywhere. Now, the new world drowns out the mastery of […]

I recently teamed up with a great group of vendors for this collaborative shoot set at the Inn at Taughannock. The overall vibe centered around art nouveau and its associated inspirations. Layne Dann, seamstress and designer of Gee June Bridal, crafted the exquisite gown seen below. I’m so happy to finally have teamed up with […]

Once again, Rachel Liz Photography has blown me away…she is my go to gal for anytime I need family pics done! I’m so grateful for her friendship and talent. And her hubby is pretty spectacular, too! Check out the video he made for us during our latest shoot with Rach…basically makes my eyes well up […]

Meredith experienced the fun of jumping into a big ol’ pile of crisp fall leaves for the first time today! Carter was happy just chilling on her blanket…this time of year is the best.

Summer is in full swing and my garden is filled with so many gorgeous blooms…I love making arrangements for friends and family and seeing how happy they are to take such beauty home with them! 

How is it possible that I’ve found myself getting maternity photos done AGAIN?! Okay, you don’t need to answer that. I know how it’s possible…but seriously! Time goes by…so fast. Meredith is already almost a year and a half and our newest daughter will be here in just a short month! Many thanks to Rachel […]

I’m sure every first time mom felt this way, but I was so overwhelmed with all the baby “stuff” on the market when we started prepping for our first baby! I had wish lists on so many sites, pinned hundreds of “must have” items on Pinterest, and asked anyone and everyone with a baby what their […]

I’ve been waiting ages to share this beautiful collaboration! My friend Bridget, of Bridget Rochelle Photography, approached me a few months ago and pitched the idea of collaborating her photography with my floral design for this romantic caramel infused wedding inspiration shoot. With just the right amount of dusty cedar and jewel tones, it makes […]

Winter is definitely here and what better way to embrace the cold weather than this romantic and intimate indoor wedding inspiration?! I teamed up with an amazing group for this shoot and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! And to make it even more special- the always inspiring Ruffled blog is featuring it […]

We are expecting another baby girl this June! We found out several months ago but were relishing in the news quietly while we transitioned into our new home in Aurora. Meredith is a joy and finding out that we’re having another girl is thrilling!

You may remember seeing this stunner a few weeks back when I posted the most recent press photos for The Blind Spots. A few days after that photoshoot, I got together with Maddy- head honcho of The Blind Spots- and together we crafted this lovely little number for you to enjoy…just in time for the holidays!

The holiday season is in full swing and between moving, prepping for Christmas, and a few other crazy and exciting things going on…I forgot to post about a lovely wedding I shot in California that was featured over on Magnolia Rouge a few weeks ago! Here’s a snippet from the feature: “Unobstructed views of the Crane […]

These two braved the chilly fall weather for what turned out to be a beautiful engagement session at Ithaca Falls and Myers Park on the lake. Courtney is what I would easily refer to as a dream bride…she has such a vision for her upcoming summer wedding, with details for days. I can’t wait to capture […]

Something extra special is in the works but I can only share snippets for now! Enjoy these lovely images of Maddy jamming out on the piano… and check back soon for more, you won’t want to miss it!

Always a pleasure to get some laughs in with this fun and talented crowd of musical gurus. If you don’t know who The Blind Spots are then you need to figure it out!

Can someone please tell me how this happened?! Babies aren’t babies for nearly long enough. This is Meredith at three days old, seven months, and almost one year. Also, if anyone is interested- these sheets and her favorite quilted blanket are both from Little Unicorn!
