I was so happy when one of my childhood friends contacted me for family portraits while I was home in South Dakota. One of my first memories is playing in the sandbox with him, my friend, Travis. It was really lovely to meet his girlfriend, Alissha, and her adorable son, Rane.
We got to go to one of my favorite parks in Sioux Falls for this sweet family portrait session. I had so much fun photographing these three! The weather was gorgeous, and their love for one another was priceless.
I had the joy of taking some engagement pictures for Paige & Quentin while I was home. It’s so cool to have a client that has been with you through your growth as a Photographer and Artist. I actually took Paige’s senior pictures for her graduation from High School!! It was so sweet to meet her introverted man, Quentin.
While photographing Paige and Quentin, it became very easy to see their love for one another. It also became very easy to see their love for Star Wars! Our shoot was full of laughter, cuddles, and adventuring. I had a lot of fun watching them battle with their plastic swords! It was so sweet to see their comfort and interactions with one another.
Also, I can’t get enough of dreamy, open South Dakota fields.
Paige & Quentin, your love is so sweet. You are a gift to one another! I can’t wait to photography you both more in the future!
I was recently in South Dakota for about 10 days. During one of my days there, I got to reconnect with my old friend from high school, Regina! She reached out to me asking if I would be able to take Family Portraits for her.
It was so lovely to see how much Regina has softened becoming a Mama. Her and her fiance, Jared, are incredible parents. Their sweet daughter Hadley was all smiles and sweetness. We also got to take these images at one of my favorite parks in Sioux Falls, Tut Hill! I loved how green and open everything was.
Regina, Jared, and Hadley, you were all a dream to work with! Thank you for being so easy to photograph! You made my job so easy!
