Senior season is upon us

August 18, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
This smart and beautiful senior was a delight to photograph today! Can't you just tell? Miss K is musical, a dancer, AND going to study Engineering in college next year! She had some ideas, and after talking, we put together a plan to highlight a little bit of her serious side... A reflection of her midwestern roots... And let's not forget,...

Dad's Bible for this young man

April 21, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
I met with this young man who has his dad's children's Bible--which is almost as big as his cute self... The story goes that when mom was young, she had the SAME Bible!?! And when they discovered this, you know, they were destined to be together.:) Ok, so maybe the story didn't go exactly like that, but how beautiful, God's plan? Congratul...

third daughter in this family

April 16, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
I was super humbled by this family's request to capture their daughter's FHC. Loved how reverent this young lady is. And those eyelashes! Can't tell at all her dad is a deacon--she is just so comfortable being in God's house. I've been honored to photograph 2 of her sisters--and can't wait for little brother...if only time could stand still for a...

Connecting with a family for daughter's FHC

April 16, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
I sure do love connecting with a family I haven't seen in a while. Because I've been all over the Archdiocese--often covering Masses at different churches on Sunday--I haven't always been at our parish. Especially to see this young lady so sweet and serious about her faith. She made this beautiful rosary with mom. LOVE! And big sister jumpe...

We decided to try to recreate a photo that her mom had from her wedding day...I didn't actually SEE the photo, but nevertheless, praying through Our Lady is always perfect. And o...

Semper Fidelis Lance Corporal Gabriel Puchalla

March 28, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Not really able to form words about this day. I did not know this young Marine. But being married to a Marine, I know what he stood for. Being a mom, my heart hurts. I pray these images comfort this family in their worst/best day as they lose their brother here on earth so he can be with Jesus. Semper Fi.
