It’s hard to say I have a favorite kind of photography session because each one offers me a unique opportunity to work as an artist, create memories for my clients, and capture their unique and personal stories. I enter each YOURStory session with this goal in mind, and this is why I specialize in these sessions and make them the …

show pig

Our boy had wanted to show a pig in 4-H ever since he was six years old. Jayten talked about pigs all the time. His first oral presentation contest talk was on the cuts of pork when he was a Cloverbud (not old enough to compete, but could do projects for display). He loved helping his friend with his pigs …

We feel very blessed with our life and raising our kids on a cattle ranch. We are able to have a rural lifestyle that allows for lots of time outdoors in the fresh air, running around, doing outside chores, learning responsibility by taking care of animals and the land in our care. Other life lessons that just come naturally with …

This is my favorite season! Not only is it time for pumpkin spice everything, apple cider and fall foliage, it’s fall calving time! Our cattle herd is divided into two breeding groups—the spring cows calve January through March. The fall cows calve August through October. And while anytime a new calf is born is cause for celebration, the fall calves …

cattle at sunrise

“The Lord’s unfailing love and mercy still continue, fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise. The Lord is all I have and so I put my hope in Him.” Lamentations 3:22-24 Sunrises and sunsets remind me of my friend, Julie. Even before she passed away, if I saw a great one, she would come to mind because I …

It’s calving time! (Cue the Semisonic lyrics. Anyone else think of It’s Closing Time? Just me? Mkay.) Thankfully it’s been a mild winter so calving this year hasn’t been that hard on the cattle or the guys. Last year there was so much snow and we had to bring many pairs into the barn to calve or right after calving, …

baby lamb

Welcome to the world, little one! “Duke,” nicknamed Lil’ dude by my youngest, made his appearance Jan. 22. He has been a highly talked about and much anticipated addition to our animal family. My oldest purchased and showed his mother, Olive, last year. She was bred in the fall, then after a five month gestation, became a mom! Of course …

Angus bull, January, Idaho

The months of January through March are usually known as the “season of muck” around here. Now last year, we were covered in snow, but it’s more typical to have a winter and spring like this year. We may get a few snowstorms, but it doesn’t last long. If the ground doesn’t freeze, then things get mucky. The ground is …

double exposure

When you live on a ranch and photograph cows a lot sometimes they all start looking the same. I admit, they aren’t super exciting, albeit I still find something beautiful about where we live and work. Lots of wide open spaces around here. I’m always asking myself how can I make the same scene look different? Just like when I’m …

Black Angus bull

Currently it’s raining…a far cry from the winter scenes I’m posting here. All the snow is gone and with all the moisture we’ve had lately, everything is green, green, green. Yay! But, it wasn’t that long ago that we didn’t think we’d ever see spring or green grass again. I was asked to submit some photos for a couple different …

icycles, winter scenes

Wow, what a crazy Idaho winter we’ve had. We haven’t seen this much snow for awhile. It seems like it’s snowing every day. One day it was coming down so fast, but it didn’t accumulate that much. After that, we got quite the storm, then freezing rain, then more snow. I’ve been trying to get out and shoot all these …

I’ve enjoyed photographing this family for a few years now, watching them welcome their first son, then their second. They both own small businesses, and I was thrilled when they first contacted me to schedule a newborn session. They had never had a family session and it worked out perfectly to schedule one for the end of fall. Enjoy the …
