Nick + Andrew // WEDDING

I honestly don't even know where to start in writing about this day. When Nick e-mailed me this winter about their wedding, I was first of all completely stoked because he is a fellow MSU graduate, and then EVEN MORE excited when he told me that he wanted as many non-posed photographs as possible. He…

Celebrating a Life // Florida 2012

  It's weird how when someone in your life passes away how everyone seems to remember that each other exist. We start giving more hugs, we visit one another, we really cherish our family. We say things like "there's always a good in every bad" and feel happy that we reconnected with family members we…

Emily & Andy // A Mountain Engagement Session

  "Hey Abbey, we'd like to fly you out to Denver so you can take our engagement photos in the mountains, let me know if you want to come!" Okay, so it didn't happen EXACTLY like that. But either way, that's what I did. I flew to Denver, spent 3 days with two of my…

Desert Times // Arizona

Vacation. There's something to be said about vacation. No schedule, no "to-do's", freedom, personal picture taking, eating, sleeping, enjoying and living. Jake and I just got back from visiting our family friends, the Hughes. Nancy and Jeff are the best hosts. From Nancy's killer breakfasts to one-of-a-kind restaurant visits ... let's just say I felt…

Dance is the Answer

Dance is truly one of those things that tugs at my heart strings. I started dancing when I was 3, continued through high school, and then minored in dance at Michigan State University. It's pretty accurate to say that besides photography it's the only thing I've really stuck with in life. The modern dance program…

vintage photographs and family weekends

This weekend was unexpectedly amazing. Admittedly, in the beginning, I would have rather stayed home in my bed and watched television. Looking back on it, that would have been a terrible mistake. Friday night I drove up to Wisconsin Rapids after work to meet with my Dad and Grandma. This normally wouldn't be exciting, however,…
