{Budget} Movie Night Under The Stars



Since formerly working in film, I couldn't stop thinking last summer about how much I missed moonlit movies in Los Angeles at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

(Read more about it here!)  

(And my parents have the ideal setting for a re-creation of this :)

One Man's Dream...Inner City mission...


A few weeks ago, I had the honor and privilege to partner with Heart Love Place in Milwaukee as their photographer and artist for their annual Red Tie Auction.

A Recap of Our First Day of Studio Classes!


"I Can Draw  A Hippo and a Monkey!"

At 26 years of age, on her wedding day, Jessie was having a stroke. 

An incredible test for this (almost) newly married couple. 

Praise God, she miraculously came through and they married a few short days thereafter.

She is an incredible fighter.

Throwing a Baby Shower - For Two Tiny Miracles!

They Twins Are Here!


Planning a baby shower can be such an incredible opportunity. Throwing a party for a friend or a loved one means you have the rare honor of blessing the heart of a momma-to-be and celebrating an unborn life!

One of my dearest friends in my entire life had not one, but two precious baby boys and I had said honor of throwing them an elephant themed celebration of life. She and her husband had been through an incredible amount of obstacles (born at 26 weeks),...

Zachariah's Acres.

Making Nature Accessible to Families with Children with Special Needs.


My heart was blessed beyond belief, when asked to do the photography for the Fall Kick-off event for Zachariah's Acres. This incredible ministry was started by a man with a vision. His mission: to make "Nature Accessible to Families with Children with Special Needs." Children come to this beautiful plot of land and share laughs and memory making with their parents, that will last them a lifetime!
