Brianne and Andrew


I’m totally obsessed with Brianne and Andrew’s engagement session. Gorgeous couple, amazing scenery and their sweet baby girl Bella. I love wine country, but I have to say Klondike park has totally taken my breath away. I think I’ll just move my studio there. Ha. Brianne and Andrew are getting married next June. We are so excited to be able to share your special day. Thank you so much for introducing me to these locations, and your sweet girl.

Easter Goodness with Gus and his sweet family!

It just dawned on me that Easter is less than one week away. Eeeeiks.

I am pretty good about keeping on track with the Holidays.   Not so much this year, I guess.

Gus brought his family to the studio for pictures this past weekend. We learned that Gus was not a fan of Mother Goose!

P.S. Did you know today is national I am in control day? I didn’t.

Welcome Sweet Baby Lincoln

I remember Aubrey and Ryan’s first visit to the studio was early 2013 to talk about their big day. They were actually the first to book their wedding for 2014. We had an awesome engagement session. I was so excited after that session was I couldn’t wait to get back to the studio to work on their pictures. Then the big day came in June. The wedding was beautiful. The weather well lets just say we weren’t far from tornado alley. We had just finished up formals at the church when all of a sudden everybody’s cell phone weather alerts were blaring. Tornado warning in effect. It was absolutely pouring down rain, actually the rain was blowing sideways.    The weather cleared up enough to get into the bus and head to our first destination for pictures.   Fast forward this fall. I learned that Aubrey and Ryan were going to become parents.


We photographed their maternity session in February and about 4 weeks later Lincoln arrived. This is why I love my job. I get to watch and document exciting times, and I get to keep in touch my couples as they start their families. Best part you ask? I get my baby fix in!!! 🙂  Congratulations Aubrey and Ryan!

Quinn and the Family

I have been working with Jamie and Clint since 2008 when we first met and took their engagement session, photographed their wedding in 2009, and now I have had the pleasure to photograph their third beautiful child, and have definitely watched this family grow. Three children later I can still see the love Jamie and Clint have for each other by the way they look at each other. This family is why I love my job. I feel like their part of my family. Thank you for sharing your special moments with Love and Life Photography

Seamus 10 months


I’m a little leprechaun
Dressed in green,
The tiniest man
That you have seen.
If you ever catch me, so it’s told,
I’ll give you my big pot of gold.

Charlotte’s 8 month session

   Charlotte came to the studio last weekend for her 8 month Watch Me Grow session.  She brought her big sister Claire with her.  This is such a fun age to photograph.  Their little minds are so inquisitive, and play is super fun.  I think some of the best images are taken when you let them do what they do…!
