Pattie & Benton (and Ruby too!) [Iowa City, IA Maternity Photography]

Pattie and Benton are expecting their first child (well, second if you count furry babies like their adorable pup Ruby!) in May, and I was thrilled that they contacted me about maternity photos. I really love photographing this time in people's lives, it's filled with tons of love, excitement, and anticipation for the new arrival. Pattie and Benton were absolutely glowing with adoration for each other as well as this new life they're eagerly awaiting.

Pattie & Benton (along with Ruby of course!) chose City Park in Iowa City as their session location, which provided a stunning snow filled backdrop for their maternity photos. Winter sessions are some of my favorites, the world just seems so peaceful, don't you think? Ruby seemed to enjoy the snow too, we were all wishing we had a luxurious fur coat like hers to keep us warm!

Pattie & Benton - it was a pleasure to meet you both, thank you for choosing me to document this milestone! I am so excited to meet your new addition when he or she arrives in May. I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!

Isn't Pattie gorgeous? This is one of my favorites. pattiebenton-40 copy

Josh [Iowa City, IA Portrait Photography]

Back in mid-May my friend Jessica's boyfriend was visiting and needed some photos taken wearing the two suits he had recently purchased. I am always up for taking photos, so of course I happily obliged. We just had a quick, impromptu session in the backyard at Jessica's parents' house one beautiful Friday afternoon, and here are a few of the images I captured.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Katie [Iowa City, IA Headshots]

I was so excited when Katie contacted me because at the first of the year I had set a goal of a specific # of sessions I wanted to book. Well, Katie was that magic #, allowing me to reach my goal! So many, many thanks to Katie!! :) Katie needed some headshots because she is a theater student at the University and wants to begin trying out for some productions, so we spent the evening last Sunday taking some photos for her.

I honestly had the absolute BEST time hanging out with Katie. She's beautiful, funny, charismatic, and tells some great stories. We had quite a bit in common, and she even loved my puppies (despite the fact that they were being a extra wild and crazy that evening!). I wish Katie all of the best, and I know she's going to go far with her career.

Katie, I hope you love these preview images - I had a very hard time picking which ones to show here on the blog. Thank you again for choosing me to take these photos for you, it was such a pleasure.

This girl has some seriously gorgeous eyes, smile, and I'd really like skin like hers - so pretty!! I think this first photo is my favorite - these yellow flowers at the Harvest Preserve were a perfect background to complement Katie.
