A few years ago I decided to solely focus on family and portrait photography however with each wedding inquiry I received, a spark would ignite that I would ignore. This year a particular inquiry interested me and I decided to take this session and I can’t explain how happy I am about that decision. I had so much fun with all these amazing people and it really reminded me why shooting weddings are so much fun. So much love and excitement with what God holds for them in the future was ever so present on this day, a day to remember. ❤

Hi Friends, I am so excited to share with you all what I’ve been up to. I somehow stumbled upon macrame art at the very moment I needed it the most. When life is at it’s hardest, art has always had it’s way to assist in calming my racing mind. I’m so thankful for this art and combining it with photography, well that’s the icing on the cake!

This shoot was so much fun you guys! Pictured are my macrame arbor’s that are currently available for rent in the Des Moines area. Huge thank you to Olivia and Scott for helping my vision come to life! ❤ ❤ ❤



Winter is a very slow time in my corner so I was pretty excited to get a call for a high school senior shoot.  Because winter makes my most treasured outdoor spots look pretty lifeless we opted to shoot downtown. During this session I realized a couple things. The first thing is that I NEED to photograph more senior sessions, like a lot more! Seniors…hit me up! Second is that I NEED to photograph downtown more and other places that aren’t nature. Don’t get me wrong shooting in forested areas and creeks is my jam but creatively I really want to push myself outside my comfort zone. Thank you Andrea for sparking my creative flow, you were a blast to photograph!
