Family Portrait Session in South Dakota

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! 


It has been so wonderful to have some much needed quality time with one of my dearest friends, Matt.  He lives in Montana, and I have loved being under these wide open skies.

Matt has always been an encouragement and inspiration to me. He is constantly growing as an Artist and man, and I couldn’t be more proud of him.

Here are some images of him where I strived to capture his gentle and artistic nature. 

Garrett & Kyla

Connection.  Vulnerability.  Intimacy.

  These are words that come to mind when I think about what I want others to see in my photography.

  These past couple of months have been a whirlwind of trying to understand the direction I want to go with my art.  This series of images is a huge leap in the direction I’m trying to go.  I love the quiet moments.  I love giving couples an opportunity to take the time to really see one another. 

  I would love to have more portrait sessions like this.  Where I am able to capture moments of each couple’s unique love and perspective of one another.  Whether dating, engaged, married for one year, or married for 50 years, every season of love holds its own unique joys and struggles.

            My heart is to help create a space for couples to connect more deeply with one another.

              Garrett and Kyla:  Your love was a dream to photograph.  Thank you for letting me see the two of you.
