Thank You - 2017 Review

First let me stop and say "Thank you". At the beginning of every new year I love to sit back and reflect on the last 365 days. This year, I have met new families, I've accomplished dream sessions from my bucket list, and many of the families I've captured over the years came back to visit for more beautiful portraits. This has been my biggest year of growth since starting my studio 9 years ago. I'm humbled to be invited into your lives and blessed to be able to watch your familes grow, reach new milestones, and help create timeless portraits. You always hear people say to do what you love. I'm lucky enough to wake up each day to new challenges and be inspired by all of you. I thank you ...

Thank You - 2017 Review

First, I have to say how much I adore this family. You may recognize the handsome Mr. Logan his dog Ozzie from his summer senior portrait experience. Logan made my photography dreams come true by asking me to capture one of his greatest passions, hockey. This is a hockey family and to say I've had fun working with them would be an understatement. I was overjoyed when they decided to partake in a fall mini session. They were another of my senior portrait families that hadn't had a family portrait taken in over a decade. The Ellingboe family braved some chilly weather along with their dog Ozzie to capture some beautiful urban portraits in the historic Millwork District of Dubuque Iowa. ...

Thank You - 2017 Review

It's better late than never. You may recognize this gorgeous senior from this years Sizzlin' Smoke session. Miss Leah was an absolute trooper the day of her Senior Portrait Experience. The weather was a tad chilly but we pushed through and her gallery is absolutely stunning. Leah wanted to include some of her passion for art and love of the fall colors. We were able to find a little bit of color still hanging around and I loved pulling out the warm blankets and jackets to add in some texture to her portraits. I love Leah's personality and we had nothing but laughs during her session around the historic Millwork District in Dubuque Iowa. I wish Leah the very best in her future endeavors and ...

A Senior and His Family

Thank You - 2017 Review

I'm sure you remember the handsome Mr. Connor from his senior session post. I loved being able to also capture his family's portraits this fall! What a fun group! This quick session kept me on my toes as we captured some beautiful fall color at Eagle Point Park in Dubuque Iowa. The Feyen family was so easy to work with and Dad kept me laughing during the session. I was also happy to capture a few portraits of them with their Foreign exchange student. Fun fact, they don't do senior portraits in Italy. The Feyen Family would like to wish their friends and family a Happy Holiday Season! Enjoy!
