I’m thrilled to be featured today for portraits of Nosara, Costa Rica on Brides without Borders — a lovely blog for planning the ultimate destination wedding. Check out the feature here! Huge thanks to Kirsten and her editorial team for including me and allowing me to share more about this beautiful country!
If you’re planning a destination wedding, let’s talk about photographing your day!
The Spring issue is here, and oh my goodness, how fast have five years flown by? It wasn’t that long ago that I white-knuckled my first assignment with the magazine—and fast forward many assignments and stories told later, and we’re celebrating the fifth anniversary issue.
This issue’s departments feature the home of Tim Lindemuth, the former editor of the K-Stater magazine and now owner of an incredibly charming bed & breakfast. He is an incredible cook and historian! The home is delightfully filled with beautiful antiques and publishing ephemera. And don’t miss the tasty feature on Wahoo Fire & Ice Grill in Aggieville–I couldn’t leave the session without indulging a little, myself.
Much of the issue is devoted to a then and now from five years ago, which was great fun to photograph a couple of families who had been featured during the first year, including the owners of Tallgrass Brewery and K-State’s First Family, the Schulz’s.
Here’s to another five years and many more incredible stories to share about the people and places who shape our community! (click to read the issue for yourself!)
Next week’s spring break has me thinking all things tropical… like the oh, so beautiful beaches in Costa Rica we visited a few months ago. Check out more of my travel photography on today’s feature post at Far and Far Away (a fantastic travel blog women who love to explore the world) or walk along those amazing volcanic black-sandy beaches along with me!
My heart is so full — I’m so incredibly honored to be featured today on Rêverie Bébé with Oliver’s beautiful newborn portraits. I love this sweet and modern blog, curated by the editors of the fabulous Rêverie wedding blog & magazine. It’s absolutely lovely and I’m so humbled to be featured!
Seriously, I’m so ready for spring, and am having to eat my words with the huge snowstorm headed our way…and I’m guessing the tulips and daffodils in my yard are thinking the same thing!
I created this photograph of Anderson Hall on the Kansas State University campus after the last snowfall a couple of weeks ago. I have a feeling it’ll be a still-life playground the next few days if we get as much as they’re predicting. Messy to get around in, but so beautiful to look at and curl up by the fire while the snow falls.
Be safe out there!
A few times a year I’ve been asked to speak on behalf of Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep at Fort Riley’s Irwin Army Community Hospital to staff members who are participating in bereavement training. It’s always a fantastic group, and I’m always so proud to share the work we do as part of NILMDTS for families whose little angels are leaving us too soon.
Last week, I proudly shared the organization’s mission and values to a full classroom. During my time in their training that day, we talked so much about the wonderful families the organization has helped, and answered their questions about why photography can be so healing. Sometimes these are difficult conversations, and at one point there were lots of misty eyes and emotional words. It’s never easy to talk about, and I find myself even finding a boulder in my throat when talking to people about the organization.
And then, as I was finishing my presentation, the highest-ranking officer in the room presented me with this–a token of their appreciation for sharing NILMDTS’ mission with their staff. I’m not often speechless, but I was so touched by their thoughtfulness and generosity that these staffers have enjoyed the information I’ve shared and can use it to help their patients and spread the mission of what we do. I was beyond words and thankful for the ability to share the work of this fantastic organization that I’ve been a part of for the last few years.

Thanks, Fort Riley/IACH staff for this recognition!
