Corinn + Jake + a belly and a baby

I had a great time shooting Corinn and Jake and their baby-to-be. These are two people that are clearly excited about their not-so-distant future of becoming parents. We roamed the countryside where I grew up in Spring Hill, KS to get these shots, and it turned out to be a beautiful night! Neville, their dog, is the most photogenic animal I have ever seen and he brought an added element of fun to the shoot. Thanks, Corinn and Jake, I had a great time hanging with you guys!

The Wallace Three

Two of the coolest people on earth... well, officially three as of 6/22/12. Abby and Jon have not only given us a place to lay our heads at night while we look for a place in San Diego, but they are two of our very best friends. It was an absolute blast to tromp around with them on the hillsides of Encinitas while I watched their eyes twinkle in expectation of their first baby... that also could have been remnants from the wine tasting that Jon and I participated in less than an hour before the shoot :)

The Nagels || Family Portraits

I must say, it pains me to look through these photos as I post them. These were taken last September of my brother and his family. My brother, Matt, died of a sudden, massive stroke at the age of 35 just 2 months ago. It is a gift to have been his brother for 33 years… not long enough! He was a true friend, an amazing father, a great husband. I miss him dearly, as does his family. I am continually inspired by the way these photos bring him to life every time I look at them. Matt, I love you… and I will always miss you.
