Welcome to the blog, a journal about my work, my clients, and their stories. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi there!

The Ellingson Family


Katie and her sweet family moved to Newburgh, IN this year and I have had a great time getting to know them! Katie and I met at church. Well, actually we “met” through Facebook. She was contacting members of my church for ideas on where to look for property as she and her family were moving here from Lexington, KY. I noticed that we had a mutual friend, so I reached out to see how we were all connected.

Get this: Katie grew up in Utah with a girl whom I was very good friends with when I lived in California! How funny is it that Katie and I would end up in this tiny town together! We both go to the same gym, Crossfit 8085, too which basically makes us family, haha!

Anyway, this Spring I had the super fun opportunity to work with Katie, her adorable kiddos and dapper husband! We timed their session perfectly with all of the gorgeous blooming trees. It was such a treat being able to love all over her family and to be able to make Katie feel as beautiful as she is. She told me that she felt “pretty” in her family pictures and I love that feedback!

I am speaking from experience when I say that we are our own worst critics, so one of the perks of my job is being able to work with people and capture their beauty in a way that they can hold onto forever. It makes my flame burn just a bit brighter when I can fan someone else’s flame.
