Connor | One Year Old | Illinois Family Photographer | Elburn, Illinois Photographer

I first met Aubrey when I was living in Iowa City 3 years ago, working as a photographer and Aubrey as a wedding coordinator and owner of the site! We worked together on a few projects and it was always such a blast. A couple of years ago, I took her son's 1 year photos and now, this year, I got to take her other adorable son's 1 year photos! We both ended up in Illinois - only about an hour apart - so it was great to catch up and capture these moments :)


Brenna's First Year | Des Moines, Iowa Family Photographer | First Year Milestone Sessions

While most of my clients are brides and grooms, I do love photographing families and children just as much! Especially when my brides and grooms come back to me with their first little ones and I get to take more photos of their new, little family! It's always so fun to watch their families grow and see them become amazing parents. Jill & Gabe are no exception. They came to me a year and a half ago and told me that they were expecting and wanted me to capture all of those moments for them. It has been such a pleasure to watch Brenna grow into such a little lady full of personality!! Here are a few highlights from her first year!

Pop Up Yoga DSM | Des Moines, Iowa Yoga Photographer

Earlier this year I had the chance to photograph some pretty awesome yogis for Pop Up Yoga DSM downtown Des Moines at sunrise! It was such an awesome experience - I met all sorts of new friends, got to photograph something I love doing myself, and I was able to be creative and try new things. These girls are all so amazing and make any yogi - new or old - feel welcome into the yoga community. 

If you've ever thought of trying out yoga, you definitely need to check out Pop Up Yoga! Just a few classes left for the summer, so be sure to take advantage!! Check their website for the schedule!
