Newborn Photography – Welcome Adelynn!

There is nothing I love more as a photographer then watching life unfold and getting to capture precious moments. I first met Joleen and Mark when we did their fishing themed engagement session. Then I had the pleasure of photographing their beautiful wedding at Broken Top in Bend. And a couple months ago, I photographed Joleen’s Maternity Session at Sawyer Park in Bend, OR.

Needless to say, I was thrilled when I got the call that their sweet little girl, Adelynn was born! Here are a few highlight’s from Adelynn’s newborn session. Welcome to the world sweet girl!

Crooked River Ranch Engagement Photos


Crooked River Ranch engagement photography

Here’s a little peak at Ryan and Alissa’s engagement photos taken near Crooked River Ranch, Central Oregon. Ryan grew up visiting Central Oregon to work on his grandparent’s ranch. He and his adorable fiance Alissa love the wide open space and all the memories the ranch holds, so they decided to have their engagement photos take out there.


I loved being out on the ranch because it reminded me of my Wisconsin dairy farm roots…especially the tractor, although I’m more of a John Deere girl myself. These two are so cute together, and have the perfect mixture of sweet, fun and a little pinch of sassy to keep things real. I can’t wait to photography their wedding this August! Congratulations Alissa and Ryan!





The Gambler & the Thief

Have you heard the sweet melodies of The Gambler and the Thief? Because you should. They. Are. Awesome.

I first met Tim and Vanessa while collaborating on a benefit concert in Bend, Oregon for Otino Waa Children’s Village. After getting coffee with Vanessa and hearing their music, I was so pumped to have them as part of the music line up along with Precious Byrd.

After the show, they asked if I’d be up for doing some photography for their band, The Gambler and the Thief. They’re relatively new to Central Oregon, having lived all over the US, and Vanessa really loves the high desert, so we headed out to one of my favorite locations.

They are too cute.
