Summery Sioux Falls Senior Session at McKennan Park

It was such a joy working with the beautiful Sam and her mama Tamara for Sam’s senior photos. I was honestly kind of stunned by this beauty. She had the most energetic, fabulous laugh and smile, but could rock a smolder like an honest to goodness model. All my dreams come true! We started Sam’s […]

PJ and I were the best of buds in middle school (I know, a million years ago!), and Molly’s older brother and I were tight throughout high school. These […]

5 Things Photographers Should Outsource in 2019

I started outsourcing parts of my photography business a couple years ago, and I will never go back. It has been such a game changer to be able to work ON my business instead of just IN my business.

How I Keep Client Photos Safe

Being a photographer is a profession that deals with a lot of technology. From the fancy cameras we shoot with, to the cards the images are saved to, to the hard drives that everything is stored on, there are a lot of moving tech parts.
