This year has been such a fun round of mini sessions! It’s been so awesome getting to use the local lake we live on for the epic backdrop and scenery. This was my third year photographing the Bonneau Family and each year it’s so fun to see how the girls have grown and to catch up! Here are a few of my favorite’s from our session the other week. 🙂
It’s that wonderful time of year when natural light photographers start photographing family sessions out the wazoo! I always love this time of year when wedding season slows down and comes to an end, and portrait sessions pick up with the cooler weather and holiday’s in the near future!
I’ve been photographing some of the most adorable families and can’t keep all these insanely cute photos to myself! I met the Horne family a few weeks ago and had such a great time capturing them together. Here are a few of my favorites!

I am so eager to share this session with everyone! In April my husband Caleb and I had the amazing opportunity to go on a missions trip to Gaborone, Botswana (in Africa). We had such an amazing trip and time of growth while there. We made so many special connections and new friends. I will be sharing all of the photos from our trip later on, on my personal blog as well as videos I put together from each day.
But until then, I wanted to share this sweet family session I got to capture while I was there! Our host family Pastor Tshepo, Thato and little fikki immediately felt like family. They opened their home and hearts to us and we truly will never be the same. On one of our last evenings there, I asked if I could photograph them near their house. Thato had mentioned to me previously that she longed for some family portraits to decorate their home with. I immediately felt God thumping my heart with the opportunity. It’s been a life long dream to 1. go on a missions trip and 2. photograph people in a different country and 3. do a professional session in a neat country. My heart couldn’t even contain all of the warm, sunny goodness that happened on this beautiful evening. I am amazed by all of the opportunities the lord brings our way when we take the back seat, and let Him do His thing within us. It’s incredible!
This family was such a breeze to photograph! They were all smiles and giggles. Their natural interaction with one another was priceless. Also, Thato MADE her dress. Handmade. Does it get any better then that?
Seeing all of these photos again make me so anxious to get back to Africa someday and to visit all of our family and friends we made while we were there! Until then, I will cherish these photographs always.
The Roberts are seriously a family walking right out of a J. Crew ad, am I right!? So photogenic, stylish and good looking! And to top it off, they were just about the sweetest people I have ever met. Can we just be like, family or something? I had so much fun walking around their GORGEOUS property around sunset this past Winter photographing them. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy styling and posing photos but there is just something amazing about sitting back and being the silent eye that catches the real life happenings. Candids: unposey and real. My motto. Lifestyle sessions are becoming more and more relevant and it makes me so happy!
Dancing in my chair (literally – I just updated my iTunes playlist) with excitement to share these images with you all! What do you think!?

I’ve known the entire Hess family most of my life now. Jasmine and Bethany (sisters) have been just like older sisters to MY sister, Breanna and I. Their our mentors, prayer partners, encouragers, and even some of our first babysitters. Whenever we needed, they were there. Through breakups, make-ups, chick-flicks, adventures and wild dance parties. These girls are our solids. 🙂
Jasmine has an amazing son Austin (who one of my ring bearers!), and Bethany is married to Matt with two wonderful children Christian and Logan. I love them all so much as if they were my own family and am so thankful for their places in my life. We headed over to a local trail by Landis Valley on a sunny evening for some Christmas card photos! It’s always a blast photographing these fun people. What do you think?
This family is hands down one of the sweetest. Right off the bat it felt so comfortable being invited into their home and talking about family/life and..my new car. WOOOT. They own a lovely fielded/wooded property in South Lancaster that was the most amazing backdrop/scenery for a Fall session. I got the chance to shoot here once before when I took their neighbors photos (Drew and Beth) over the Summer! They saw the images and fell in love with them and immediately contacted me to do theirs. YES! We had a great time getting to know one another, exploring their property and petting their pet goat. You read that right. Amazing.
Here are some of my favorite images from this fun gang!
