This wedding was extra special to us!  Janelle was my RA in college and also one of my sister’s best friends.  JJ and Andy played soccer together and taught the JV Awana group for a couple of years.  JJ and Janelle are absolutely perfect for each other  and it was such a joy to watch them become “one” through marriage!  It was also fun to be back in Dubuque where Andy and I started dating : )… oh the memories!  This town is so beautiful with its character and history.

These photographs are very near and dear to my heart.  Joel and Karime are two of the sweetest and most genuine people that I know.  I feel so honored to have been given this opportunity to come into their home to take these photographs.


Helena is incredibly beautiful.  She looks so much like her daddy, but she definitely has her mommies big brown eyes.  Melt!!!

Isn’t their mid-century modern home amazing?!  It is privately set among trees and wooded area.  Karime paints and draws and is a true artist all around.  Her organic and beautiful taste is expressed throughout their home!



I hope to start taking more documentary family photographs.  Letting me into your home is what gets me excited to capture your family and make intimate photographs (and no, you don’t have to have a perfect looking home like this either ; ).  I love the real every day life with messes and all!

Our sweet daughter entered the world two weeks ago on November 8th.  I don’t know where the time goes but we’ve just been enjoying our days snuggling, sleeping and getting to know each other.  She weighed 6 lbs 11oz and was 20 inches long.  I cannot describe how much love I have for her and I feel like I can’t take it in fast enough. I am sooo incredibly thankful to God for bringing this precious blessing into our lives and for the many dear ones who prayed and prayed for her. This Thanksgiving we have so much to be thankful for!!!   I hope to write her birth story sometime soon and add pictures from the hospital.
