Something not a lot of you may know about me is that I love to read a good book! I usually will take a book with me everywhere I go. Wether its to work, on a plane, to the hospital…(haha you never know). There will always be a book in my car or in my bag at all times. Reading got a little slim this year since the business picked up for me with the photography business, and my personal day job. But, I always see people posting on Facebook for recommendations on what to read. I figured I’d put together a blog about some of my recent favorites for you all to check out and give them a read! I’m hoping I can finish at least 2 books from now until the end of the year. Seems like a small goal, but it’s a goal! Check out the books I have listed below and let me know if you have read them, or what your favorites have been this year!!


  1. What Alice Forgot


“She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over—she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time.”


I could NOT put this book down once I started! Hands down my favorite book! I wanted to continue reading to figure out what was going to happen next. This book started the author crush I have for Liane Moriarty. She’s definitely one of the favorites.


2. If Only You Knew

“Letting go of her ex-husband is harder than wedding-dress designer Jenny Tate expected . . . especially since his new wife wants to be Jenny’s new best friend. Sensing this isn’t exactly helping her achieve closure, Jenny trades the Manhattan skyline for her hometown up the Hudson, where she’ll start her own business and bask in her sister Rachel’s picture-perfect family life . . . and maybe even find a little romance of her own with Leo, her downstairs neighbor, a guy who’s utterly irresistible and annoyingly distant at the same time.”


This was another one of those books that I just couldn’t set down! I love books that I can just get sucked into the story and forget about everything else but that story that I’m reading. Thank you Target for making it hard for me to stop buying everything I see, and having this book on display one day for me to grab. I appreciate it!


3. Husband’s Secret


“Cecilia Fitzpatrick, devoted mother, successful Tupperware business owner and efficient P&C President, has found a letter from her husband.”For my wife, Cecilia FitzpatrickTo be opened only in the event of my death”But Cecilia’s husband isn’t dead, he’s on a business trip. And when she questions him about it on the phone, Cecilia senses something she hasn’t experienced before. John-Paul is lying.What happens next changes Cecilia’s formerly blissful suburban existence forever, and the consequences will be life-changing for the most unexpected people.”

Again, Liane Moriarty kills it with another great book. After this one I probably went and bought 2 more of her books in which I am starting one of them now. Hopefully I can finish that one in a few days and be one step closer to reaching that goal of two books. haha.



4. The Girl on the Train

Okay you need to read this book. I picked this up in the Gatwick airport before flying home after my 3 week long Europe trip. I figured I might as well grab a book and read it. It was on display everywhere and everyone was swarming next to it. So I grabbed it. got on the plane and once we took off I barely set it down. From London to Canada, Canada to Nevada I read the whole way, finishing the entire book. It is a must read! I recommend reading the book then watching the movie, I know it has been out for a little while now and some of you have probably already watched the movie first. But seriously, read the book too! haha.



I can keep on going but I’ll keep it short and sweet! I’ll update the book list as I continue to read more! I’d love to read any recommendations you may have for me!








Alright guys! The time is here to start booking your family photos! The fall for us photographers gets pretty busy, between family photos and wedding season kicking back up. I’m giving you all the opportunity to book now so everyone has enough time to plan and get your photos back to you before the holidays!! So don’t be that last minute person! All the times and dates will be announced below in this post.

All sessions will be one hour in length, and at an outdoor location of your choosing. Don’t know where to go? Don’t worry, I will help you pick an outdoor location that I think would be best for your session.

Wardrobe help! Everyone has to look for their family photos. That’s where I come in. I will help guide you in the right direction to make sure that you are all set for your session and looking great. Limit to one outfit. Outfit changes can get time consuming, especially for groups of people. We want to make sure we utilize all your time for an opportunity for more memories captured. Can’t forget hair and makeup. Family photos are an investment to be shared and loved for years, we want to make sure you look and feel great throughout the whole session!


To book your desired time and date!:

Step One:

Email me at requesting the desired time and date listed. You MUST email! No text messages, or Facebook messages. If you know me, you know that I can get distracted VERY easily. I may or may not forget to text you back, but I’m always worried about my emails. So email only!! I will email you back letting you know if the date you want is still available. Then I will proceed with sending you the agreement to sign and the invoice to pay. You won’t be fully booked unless those two items have been completed. First come first serve!


Step Two:

Sign the contract and pay the invoice! You will have a day to do so, that way we can get you on the books and ready to go! Your session date and time will not be secure unless contract and invoice are signed. So make sure that you are 100% committed to me and these photos right before that first email! The FULL session amount will be due to book.

Once you are officially booked you will receive that Hip Hip Hooray! email, then we can get the planning process started for your family photos!


Here are the session date and times below. I will keep you all updated! Can’t wait to see who books with me this year!!


Oh…. good luck, and may the odds be ever, in your favor…. 😉

Hollllllly mollllllly. I really suck at this whole blogging thing. But can I be real for a minute? ….I am the WORST writer. I say I’m going to get a blog up and stare at the screen for minutes then give up and say I’ll just do it later. Then life happens and I don’t go back to the blog for DAYS on DAYS, so then nothing ever gets done. I have realized this year starting a new job and also juggling my photography business is a lot of work. Trying to get everything done in one day is nearly impossible. Making lists has become my best friend. But following through with those lists once I get home is something I’m still trying to keep up with…. I’m just lazy and all I want to do is go to bed whenever I get home hahahah…

ANYWAYS,…. enough about all of that.  One day I will get my shit together until then let me continue to show you what I do best…. Take amazing photographs of people!:)



Like Emalee and AJ!  I freaking adore these two. They told me over and over how they are going to be extremely awkward in front of the camera but I think they were liars because they acted so natural with me and I really got to see the love these two have for each other. When Emalee texted me after relieving her gallery and telling me how these are the most amazing photos she’s ever had of the two of them and how happy she was to have these pictures really made my heart melt. Those are the words you love as a photographer. This is why I do what I do…But this isn’t the first time I photographed Emalee and AJ. I did their engagements a few years back. Boyyyy have I made some major progress since then. Not that my work was terrible, it’s fun to see the progress you make as an artist throughout the years. And the fact that your clients stay with you along the journey is an amazing feeling.


Now I’m going to stop talking because like I mentioned earlier this is the part I suck at. I’m just going to share some of my favorites with you!











Seriously…. I’m obsessed with her hair!!!

























I absolutely adore these two love birds. I had the pleasure of photographing Vicki and Jay’s cozy maternity session at Wetlands Park.  Seeing these two outside of their work place was so much fun. They both work at Modern Nails in Las Vegas! If you are looking for a new nail technician, or salon to go to, you have now found it! They are the BEST. Plus, they are open late. That’s how they won me over. Every time I go and get my monthly gel manicure, yes monthly when I text Jay last minute freaking out before I end up breaking a nail, I’m always so obsessed with how  cute these two are together. Jay talks about Vicki so much I get so excited for the both of them, I’ve been waiting for the day that they’d ask me to take some type of photos for them. When I found out that they were welcoming a little baby girl I just had to get them in front of my lens! It worked. And, they’re adorable. Just like their new little bundle of joy that came not to long after their maternity session!



















Oh how it’s been a mighty long time since I last logged into this blog of mine. Life really gets in the way, I’m sure I say that in every beginning of a blog post too. But honestly, working a full time job and trying to juggle running a business and having some what of a life is kinda hard. I can’t go anywhere without my planner. I’m super old school and have to write things down and see it written out on a calendar instead of using this smart handy Apple iPhone that I have…why do I pay hundreds for this thing again? Just kidding I will never trade that in for anything else.  I have to make a list everyday and cross things off when they’re finished so I feel like I accomplished something. All I want to do is photograph pretty people all day long, and maybe finish reading another book. So today I’m home knocking out my to do list and finally getting a blog post up without procrastinating to much on it.

Back in January I had the opportunity to put this shoot together with these lovely friends of mine. Jessica and Blaine headed out to the desert with me to explore someplace new and be my lovely models. I have to say I used to HATE this Las Vegas desert. As a photographer I have learned to see the beauty in it and come to love it so much. I used to be jealous of all the photographers who lived in these pretty GREEN places. Now I rather have the desert over anything else. Along with my favorite subjects to shoot! Couples!! I could have stayed all day and night out in the desert with these two.
