I love New Years. I love the designated chance to reflect and reset. I don’t think you can always see your life clearly in the moment. But when you stop to turn around and take a look at everything behind you, the haze lifts and in that pausing- there is clarity. Sifting through thousands of […]
It’s not hard for me to fall in love with the people who ask me into their lives to document their wedding day. From first dinner to engagement session, to chats on the phone and more, we spend a a lot of time together and my heart steadily grows for them.
I fell in love with Danielle and Michael almost instantly.
This past spring, I went down to California to visit my sister and followed that with a trip to Minnesota to see a few dear friends I hadn’t seen in years. I used to shoot a ton of 35mm film when I was in high school. To this day there’s something about it that remains […]
I was 19 when I decided to start my business. I didn’t have any idea what living my life as a full time creative would feel like. All I knew was I had this skill – this passion – and I couldn’t think of anything I’d rather do for my job. I was meant for it. […]
— There’s this running joke the Roberts sisters have with the Adams family. It goes something like… If any one Adams family member plans on having a milestone moment in their life, either I or my sister will be a part of it. The very first wedding I ever filmed was for their oldest daughter […]

After a mid-morning drive on a sunny day in July of last year, I parked my car at the end of Kelly and Brandon’s cul-de-sac and strolled up to knock on their door, ready to shoot their celebration. From inside I heard the pitter-patter of feet running down the stairs. The knob turned and Kelly […]
True confession: I’ve been hooked on the TV show “This Is Us” since day 1. One of the things I find most beautiful about it is the way it highlights the key role that timing plays in all our lives. We never know what’s coming up for us. It’s only in the turning around that […]
Little Miss Maisey came into the world simultaneously later and way faster than any of us ever thought she would. Given that the sweet little thing was to be born in the summer, it was right at the start of my wedding season. I had one wedding on the day she was due and one […]
— There’s this part in one my favorite Christmas movies, The Family Stone, where Sarah Jessica Parker’s character unearths a photo of Diane Keaton’s character, joyfully pregnant with one hand to her face and the other resting on her belly. SJP proceeds to frame and gift that photo to every member of the family on […]
