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.






















I suppose it’s time for a new blog post finally. I wanted to show the world Emily and Brian’s awesome engagement session that we did back in September. These two crushed it! Now hopefully I don’t get distracted as I’m sitting here watching Mean Girls and this post actually gets published within a timely manner.

I can’t wait for their wedding in March! Watching these two laugh and have a good time with each other during their engagement session was so adorable to watch. Capturing those real smiles is what I love the most.




















Baby Ali is one!! I love this sweet family of three. Now this post may be a little over due but traveling to Europe had be back track my blogging schedule. But of course it MUST still go up!! How can it not though? Because these photos are absolutely adorable. And yes to answer all those questions I know I will be getting about Europe.. there WILL be a blog post about that up soon as well! Ali turned one in August and we overcame the hot Vegas heat to make these photos happen just in time for her! I love all the times I get to spend with my sweet families and couples with my camera in hand! Enjoy, xo L.


























Of course couldn’t leave without snagging a few of just mom and dad:)




Oh, the Browns. I’m obsessed with every single image from my sweet session with this family of 4. I met Peyton years ago when we worked together and I have photographed her several times. She has been such an amazing friend to help me out when I needed models for school projects. She always nailed the look I need and was always down for any adventure. Thank you for also being down for this hot end of Spring session with me! Not only just you this time, but I finally got to meet the rest of your adorable family!! Im now obsessed with twins!!! Haha seriously. These two sweet little souls were commenting eat other as mom was putting their bows in their hair, “you are so beautiful” but of course in a sweet 5 year old voice. My heart melted at the cutest. Compliment after compliment from each of them. I never had the chance to photograph twins before until now and I think I need more of them in my life. So if you have twins, please, contact me lets shoot haha!

The bugs and the heat may have been an annoyance, but capturing the real raw moments of them being a family was sure perfection.


I am now scheduling for the rest of September – November.
