Family of Seven {Williston Family Photography}

Family of Seven {Williston Family Photography}
The Nass Family was an incredible family session. I wasn't sure what to expect with 5 kids; knowing exactly how my kids can be, I left my expectations low and prepared to use my mom voice if necessary. These kiddos blew me away! They were so good and cooperative and you could just feel the closeness the family has towards each other. We ended up with so many great pic[...]

Thirteen year old Cousins {Williston Portrait Photographer}
My daughter Isabel and her cousin Ava were born two days apart.  I can still remember the day my sister-in-law, Twyla, called me to say she had just left her OB appointment and was heading to the OB Unit because the doctor could feel Ava's feet!  Twyla was in tears and scared that her baby was coming a month early, and I was both excited for her and a bit jealous that[...]

Four adventurous boys {Williston Children Photographer}
I had the pleasure of capturing these boys – two sets of brothers last weekend. The North Dakota wind took a break, so the weather was perfect for the shoot! Mom picked the badlands for the scene.  The boys' imaginations were in full swing and it was fun to watch them exploring the area.  As in life, working with "littles" during a photo shoot can be a challenge for a[...]

  May the next few months of your life be a period of magnificent transformations. ~Unknown~ When the O’Dwyer family moved to Colorado in August, they took a little piece of me with them.

The most precious bond {Williston, ND family photography}

The most precious bond {Williston, ND family photography}
The most precious jewels you'll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children. One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is the fact that I get to capture a moment in time for my clients--something they can look back on years down the road, bringing them right back to that time and those memories. So when my friend of nearly 30 years, Jess, gave m[...]

You are my sun, my moon, and all of my stars. ~ E. E. Cummings Nature's canvas in the fall is so rich and vibrant and ever-changing, so I was excited that Billie wanted to find a place with trees to capture her family memories. After having to cancel our original session due to rain, we headed out to shoot at a few places where the beautiful colors of nature would [...]

New Favorite Day ~ {Williston family photographer}
Any day spent with you is my favorite day. So, today is my new favorite day. ~Winnie the Pooh I had the pleasure of meeting this adorable family. Eric, Brittany, and Evelyn reminded me of exactly how I felt when our oldest child was 8 months old. I loved the fact that Brittany sat next to Evelyn in the back seat to keep her happy on the drive there; I remember doin[...]
