Things in my life are getting real now. going on 34 weeks pregnant… the nursery is nearly finished. ‘Before Baby’ projects are getting crossed off the list one by one. Everyone keeps asking if I’m excited… how I’m feeling… names picked out??   The answers are, actually, no. Not that excited. I find myself withdrawing to process […]

Megan - I’m right there with you Stacy and so comforting to know someone else feels the same. (We are due end of December). Isn’t it incredible though, feeling and experiencing the miracle of life right there inside of you? That little baby is so lucky to have you and Ryan to raise it, you will be amazing parents!

stacy - Congratulations, Megan!!
I knew as soon as I posted my thoughts — or at least hoped! gulp! — that someone could relate. I’ve gotten a lot of feedback via phone calls and texts actually. We’re not alone and we’re not weird! yay! haha

Megan - Yay!!


Grant is the grandson of one of the best volunteers at SCLP, Cheryl. And Cheryl and her husband, Kelly, own the most amazing property in Wahoo that they let me shoot on all the time. I’m so grateful for their kindness… isn’t Grant cute? he loves superheros, riding his bike, the farm cats, and Necco […]

ali & justin’s brood

Justin and Ali live on a beautiful ranch in central Nebraska and are in the process of adding on a massive addition….basically doubling the size of their already ginormous home. And not only is it huge (and is the ULTIMATE hide-and-go-seak play place), but every detail is unique and modern and cool. The perfect blend […]

the Bruck wedding!

Yes. The wedding of Faith and Tim. They were married on a hot Summer day last month in the smallest, hilliest town in Iowa. So cute! And the townsfolk there like to party! It was a day full of laughter and I was so happy to be a part of it. Faith was the calmest, […]

Paper Doll

WHAT a sexy plane! I love the Fagen family… they fly down from Granite Falls, MN every year so I can capture them doing what they love… hanging out at airports! And this mama, Melissa, is so cool. She’s soon to be a pilot, herself. You go, girl. More about the plane… she’s named Paper Doll […]

Ellie & Ryan are married!

Ellie has 5 brothers and sisters! So it was a total family affair! This was the most relaxed and easy weddings I’ve shot to date… and probably because it was all family. So. much. fun. Made me super jealous of their closeness, since I’m an only child. *sigh* But at least I get to experience […]
