I'm so glad you're here! This is where you can keep up with my latest weddings, engagements, and family sessions as well as my personal artistic projects and paleo-ish recipe hacks. It's a great way to get to know me and my work, and I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas for future posts in the comments.
I am so thrilled by the response to my Viking Meadows mini sessions to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis research. The families who booked a session raised a total of $1500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Thank you everyone! While I was offering these mini sessions, I had some interest from people outside of […]
If you are expecting right now, you’ve already had to cancel a lot of plans–baby showers, doulas, siblings coming to the hospital, postpartum visitors–and so much more. One thing you don’t have to forgo is photos with your new baby. True, your session probably won’t look the way you envisioned it, but that doesn’t […]

I had so much fun with my spring minis at Coxhall Gardens that I decided to open a summer session at Cool Creek Park. It’s one morning only, and I think these are going to go fast! As with my past mini sessions, I will be donating all of the session fees–this time they […]
Ok, here’s the deal with this post. It is NOT a tutorial on how to make a perfect wall gallery. (There are already dozens of posts on that topic.) This is my very honest accounting of all the mistakes I made in my own wall gallery. I’m sharing it for two reasons: 1.) I […]
In the process of designing my own family wall gallery, I have learned a lot about what makes a gallery that sparks joy, and I would love to share my experience with you. First, we have to start with that old gallery and the reasons I didn’t love it. Problems with my Old […]
I am so excited to offer my first mini sessions since moving to Indiana! I’ve been waiting for just the right time and location to make these available, and everything finally came together this Spring. As with my past mini sessions, I will be donating all of the session fees–this time they will go […]
This blog post has been a year in the making, and I’m still not sure I can do it justice. This will be one of my more personal posts, and I’ll be talking about pregnancy, adoption, miscarriage, and special needs kids, so if that’s something that might be hard for you to read right now, please give yourself grace to move on.
For these family portraits, we knew we wanted to go with a lifestyle approach and capture the magical feeling of Laura’s house at Christmas time. It’s always been a special holiday for her, but it became something more precious when sweet Teddy arrived two years ago in December. His name, Theodore, means “gift from God” and his middle name, Noel, means “Christmas”, and I think his birthday is going to be the best Christmas gift his family gets to have every year.
******UPDATE: All of the mini sessions are now full! Thank you so much to all the families who have snapped up this opportunity to support the Lanzettas! I look forward to seeing you on November 5!********* Hi friends, I have a big announcement! For the first time ever, I’m offering mini sessions this fall. While […]
