Erin + Blake [Coralville, IA Family Photographer]

This fall was a lot of fun because I got to meet a bunch of new people, but I also reconnected with many past clients! Seriously, my heart could not be happier for Erin and Blake. I photographed their engagement a couple of years ago, and Erin asked me to take some photos of her and Blake for their holiday card which would be announcing that they are expecting! I am so excited for these two! Here are some of my favorites from their tree farm holiday session!

Tru Salon 2017 Editorials [Iowa City, IA Editorial Photography]

If you look back on the blog, you will probably notice that I LOVE doing these sessions. There's something so incredible about collaborating with other artists to bring their vision to life that consistently inspires me, and I am so very grateful I get to do these sessions with the talented ladies at Tru Salon. This is the 2017 Editorial Collection, in order from Spring to Winter, followed by their Tru Model Search winner (a giveaway we do every year for their anniversary, and it's one of my favorite shoots I get to do!). All of the ladies featured are clients of the salon, NOT models, which makes it even more fun to see the transformation, and the first image for each season is the one that was chosen to be the featured image on the wall in the salon.

Rowan [Mentor, OH Lifestyle Newborn Photography]

This session with Vanessa, Travis, and their little guy Rowan was so much fun! I met Vanessa and Travis when I was a plus one to their Atlantis wedding in the Bahamas a couple of years ago and I took some photos for them there. It was great to see these guys as a family of three, and Rowan did an awesome job at his first photo session!

Megan + Remy [Iowa City, IA Pet Photography]

My friend Megan just got a new puppy at the beginning of December, a little Havanese named Remington, or Remy for short. I couldn't resist that little face, so we did a photo shoot where my ultimate goal was to steal him, but I settled for puppy kisses and snuggles and gave him back in the end. Here are a few of my favorites from their mini session!

Jordyn + Austin [Mentor, OH Maternity Photography]

Jordyn and Austin are expecting their first little one in February, and we took their maternity photos on one of the last warm(ish) days before the holidays. How fantastic is that red dress in photos? Seriously perfect, I love all the movement we got with the dress in the wind and it popped so well against the wintery Iowa landscape!

Alex + Kelly + Duke [North Liberty, IA Family Photography]

This sunkissed fall photo shoot with Alex and Kelly was so much fun! Alex works with me at my day job, and Kelly wears many hats job-wise including being the mastermind behind KP_ing It Simple, which is an account of her fitness journey and is super inspiring!
