MEET Maddie

Shot this yesterday. Blogged it today. You know what that means? I’m proud of it and just had to share it. These sunset cotton pictures are some of my favorite ever and I can’t wait to have this sweet family back in front of my camera this November when their baby girl makes her arrival. To think I’ll be a mama by then, too. Life sure is crazy. But I’m thankful. Say hi to Meghan,…

WHAT TO EXPECT My family sessions are relaxed, fun, and low pressure! We follow the lead of the kiddos in order to keep them happy and keep the session real. Playing in the grass, having jumping contests, picking flowers – whatever it takes to keep the little ones happy and enjoying the session. I strive to keep my sessions stress-free for my families so that they can enjoy their time and make lasting memories during…

Almost a year ago, Bree and I were photographing these two on their wedding day in the middle of a tornado. TRUE STORY. Zero exaggeration. Now, they are anxiously awaiting the arrival of their sweet baby boy, Hayes!

I get the honor of documenting each special chapter and man oh…

Oh man, this session was extra extra sweet for me because this is the second babe that I’ve been honored to photograph for Ben +  Courtney. It wasn’t long ago we were capturing sweet Miles firsts few days at home and it was so special seeing him with his brand new baby sister. I’m so thankful for Ben & Courtney each time they invite me in their home. There’s always something special about photographing families…


"Maddie’s ability to capture the beauty and innocence of love and life is truly a God-given talent. She is always fun and easy going even when dealing with stressed out parents and wild toddlers. Every time we’ve gotten our pictures back there’s moments she has captured that I never even saw."

"Her work is priceless - you will be blessed by her talents!"

Sierra and Hunter

Choosing Maddie for our wedding pictures was hands down the BEST decision! She is not only AMAZING at what she does, but you can tell through her work that is her passion! She is a joy to work with and her energy makes everyone excited about taking pictures (even my stubborn honey had a great time)!

"We had a blast during our time with her, which made it easy for her to capture US!"

MADDIE and Zachary

"She guides the shoot and makes it about whoever the subject is with such comfort and ease. I never doubted her and we have beautiful pictures to prove it!! I truly enjoyed our shoot and I hope we have more in the future."

"Maddie has a wonderful personality!"
