Mallory J

On 7/26/16 I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful model Mallory J. She needed a small urban set for a magazine. So we did a VERY quick session at the court in the “Village of East Davenport.” I hope one of our photos gets picked to be featured in the magazine! Let me know how it goes Mallory!

The Larson Family

The Family Next Door

When I was just a sweet little teen girl, a new family moved next door to my dad’s house. While my dad was building on his back deck my curious mind kept checking over the fence to the hustle and bustle of the new family moving in. I remember my excitement when they had kids!!! Two awesome boys to be exact! One was just a year older than me and the other just 3 years behind. I finally got to meet them after some time. We all became great friends and have shared years of adventures. While our lives have sent us on many different paths, occasionally we cross paths and it’s always fun! I had the pleasure of photographing their family last weekend. Here’s a few of the spectacular portraits I got!

Krys – Boudoir Client

Recently I had a session with a very lovely new client. She told me about some struggles she had with health issues and weight loss. She wanted to see herself the way others did, and a way to feel beautiful. I said have no worries, you came to the right place! We had a fantastic time and her images came out absolutely gorgeous!!!! I had the privilege to get an interview from her as well as her product reveal. Check out below for the insight!

Photo A Day Social Experiment

Just started a #PhotoADay social experiment to see how easy it is to meet new people and take a simple portrait. Brittany and her son teamed up to do a Facebook Live video with Portrait Photography. Don’t mind the cameraman….he’s only 8!!!! The video includes some snippets from the Facebook Live videos with their accompanying portraits. Thanks to our brave models that gladly participated in this social experiment! And I hope you like your portraits!

Stay tuned for more!!!

Meet the Scott Girls

Hey Everyone!

I recently did a session with one of my longest clients! I had the chance to photograph the gorgeous Heather Scott, her Beautiful Daughters, and furbabies!

image

I may be a little biased on feelings toward the Scott Girls as Heather is my sister and her daughters are my nieces.

However, I have been photographing their family since 2008!

image

Heather is quite the wonder-woman as she works a full time job, a second part time job, goes to school, and is still able to manage a full schedule with her daughters and Dogs.

Her daughters are into Monster High, dance, and looking fashionably ADORABLE!

image

Their family is totally into the Dallas Cowboys and football, Netflix, and anything they can do together.

Thanks for letting me take your photos again! Love you ladies!
