Noah is growing up so fast!

Every once in awhile I have to slip in a photo of our grandson, Noah. He is our first grandchild and as parents of two daughters, you can imagine how special it is to have a grandson. Noah is 16 months old and now that he is running all around he is definitely looking more grown-up! He likes to wear his hat backwards like his Dad. I love this photo and how it accentuates those big eyes of his. We love you Noah!

Mike & Emma's Wedding


I was fortunate enough to tag along with my friend Melissa of Sieversma Photography photograph the wedding of Mike and Emma just outside of Huron over Memorial Day weekend. The weather was beautiful, the bride and groom were glowing, a perfect wedding day!

The wedding took place on the bride's parent's farm which added to the specialness of Mike and Emma's day. A huge white tent served as the reception hall and it was like walking into a greenhouse with flowers everywhere! And it smelled heavenly!

I had a blast with Melissa, we left at 6:00am, started photographing the bride and her bridesmaids at 9:00am at the hair salon and didn't stop until about 10:00pm that night! I can't wait to have Melissa with me as I photograph Kim and Tyler's wedding!

It is so nice to have a 2nd shooter to help capture ALL those special moments. Melissa and I each have our own style but our photos compliment each other. It was so fun to see how each of us approached the same shot! And it was great to have each of us at a different vantage point at both the wedding and reception. You never know where "the shot" is going to take place. For example, one of my favorites from the day is of Mike's big smile framed by the best man uncorking the champagne!

If you have a wedding coming up, contact me for pricing. And if you are interested I can give you a quote for a package with a second photographer so that you won't miss any of your favorite moments of your big day!

Thinking of our great-neice Abby as she prepares for her 2nd kidney transplant

Our great-neice, Abby Logue is at Mayo for final testing and preparation for her 2nd kidney transplant. Abby was only 18 months old when she received her first kidney transplant in 2005. To read more about this remarkable little girl, please see her CaringBridge website.

Here are a few photos of Abby taken last fall - as you can see from the photos, she is a very happy and active little girl! We're praying that all the testing goes well and Abby will get her new kidney and be back home soon!
